Welcome to Shincliffe Boarding Kennels & Cattery
Our kennels and cattery is situated outside Durham in a secluded quiet area surrounded by fields and trees providing a tranquil environment.
We are pleased to announce we will be re-opening on Saturday 1st August.
Initially we will be running at reduced opening hours:
Monday to Saturday 9.30am – 4pm
Sunday 10am – 3pm
If you do have a booking with us from 1st August onwards can you please confirm if it is still required, or if you require a booking you can do this via Facebook messenger or our email.
We will have measures in place for everyone’s safety. Hand sanitiser will be available in our reception area, only 1 customer in reception at any one time and if possible print out a booking form online and have it filled in to give to staff on arrival.
Also our card machines will not be available so we will only be accepting cash payments for the moment.
Dogs of all breeds and sizes are welcome and accepted for boarding on both long and short term stays. Each dog has their own heated kennel, to provide a warm and cosy environment. All dogs will have access to a covered outdoor run, and are exercised, sometimes unsupervised, daily on a individual basis in the outdoor paddock
Everything, blankets toys and plastic beds are provided to make their stay as comfortable as possible.
For our feline friends, the cattery provides individual indoor chalets of various sizes enabling one or more cats to be housed together in a comfortable and relaxing environment. During the winter months the cattery is centrally heated, providing a warm cosy relaxing atmosphere, to make our feline guests feel totally at home.
During all school holidays a non refundable deposit is now required together with a minimum 2 night stay.
During the festive period any animals boarding on Christmas Eve/Day, Boxing Day and New Years Eve/Day will incur an additional charge of 2.50 per animal per day.
