Teyha, our 6 month old springer spaniel has just returned from 18 days with Angela. Were we concerned about such a long visit for a puppy? No. The alternative of having someone stay in our home to look after Teyha didn't feel right for us. We've had dogs for 34 years and used other kennels, but knew we needed somewhere special for Teyha, having prebooked our USA trip prior to her arriving in our lives. We had a friend's recommendation to Angela, and on inspection knew why. Her friendly 'hands on' approach immediately felt right for us. I could happily leave Teyha here. I also talked to our local dog trainer about puppies in kennels - and was reassured to be told that they they are very resilient, and she would be fine. We did an overnight stay, followed by a 4 night stay for her as a build up to the big trip. Each time fine. After all, this is normal to her, she knows no difference! On arriving last monday to collect her after our holiday, I could see Teyha in the outdoor run. She looked up at me and wagged her tail, then carried on eating her chew. Totally relaxed. Angela said she was very sociablle, and had enjoyed being with everyone there. Teyha has settled back into home as if nothing has happened! All we can say to Angela and staff is a big thankyou - we had total peace of mind whilst away.

 

Sue and Colin Smith - We have used Pyke many many times over the 7 months whether its for a longer break or just a few nights...as soon as we arrive near the kennels the boys know where they are and are pleased to see Angela and their friends!!

 

The kennels are always full with dogs, and every dog looks happy, healthy and having a great time....Angela is friendly, caring towards the dogs and loves them as much as the owners!!!

 

Thank you Angela for offering such a lovely, welcoming place...

"Two days before we went abroad on holiday one of our spaniels got a thorn in her eye and needed a small operation. Fortunately she was ok, but had to wear a cone for a week, required medication 3 times a day, and a check up at the vets the following week. I thought I would have to cancel my holiday but Angela reassured me that she would be look after Sybil, and the vet also said I should go, since he knew Angela would do a great job.

 

Sure enough, Sybil was beautifully looked after and made a full recovery. Angela cared for her as if she was one of her own dogs, and we were sent regular updates whilst on holiday, which meant that we could relax too.

 

When we came home we collected our happy, healthy dogs, who also looked very smart having had their coats washed and trimmed by Rachel! (Sherston Dog Grooming)

 

We have used Pyke Kennels for years, and always appreciated the care given to the dogs by Angela. She runs a friendly, caring business and I would not send my dogs elsewhere. Her care for Sybil absolutely highlighted what a special place Pyke Kennels is. Many thanks for such great care and going the extra mile."

We are so pleased we found Pyke Kennels. All our dogs are big pets really but when we go away to dog shows were know that those staying behind are being well looked after. All the dogs enjoy staying with you, even the puppies. They all come home looking well fed and very happy. We have sometimes had to make changes to our plans, you have been so helpful in fitting everything in. Thank you for looking after the dogs so well.

Sally and Alistair

I just wanted to write to thank you for looking after Bob so well while we were away visiting family abroad.

 

After our dog sitter was no longer able to look after her, we contacted you & talked in length as we had a number of concerns about leaving her in kennels due to her old age. You reassured us greatly & was extremely caring & accommodating.

While away we were in constant contact via text & email... this helped hugely. It was smashing to know what she was up to & so pleasing to hear that she was having a lovely time in the garden etc...

When we collected her, we could see straight away that she had been totally fine while we were away & actually seemed to enjoy the social aspect with all the other dogs.

Thanks again, we will most definitely see you again.

Hi Angela,

Firstly, thanks so much for taking the time with me yesterday - I really enjoyed my visit.

Secondly, I hope you will be pleased to hear that out of all the kennels I have visited (and there have been a lot!) you have definitely made it to the top of the list.

We just wanted to drop you a ‘Big Thank You’ for taking such good care of Tom and Hamish whilst we were on holiday, it is the first time that we have left the dogs in kennels as we usually take them with us but it was really nice to have the freedom to come and go as we pleased.  The collection and delivery service that you also provided to us was second to none and you will never know just how much it helped us put everything into place.  I have told everyone that asked how the boys got on with their holiday about Pyke Boarding Kennels and would have no hesitation in recommending your services and premises to other dog owners.

"Lucy, our mad springer spaniel has stayed at Pyke Kennels on a few occasions now.  Lucy was a little wary at first, but she has now sussed the routine and literally ran into the kennels last time on arrival!  Angela is always a friendly face to see and seems to really enjoy running the kennels.  The kennels are large and clean and it is always reassuring that there are dogs playing in the runs with wagging tails. There are two drop offs in the day which we think is great as this avoids lots of disruption to the dogs.  We also find that Angela is really efficient on replying to our last minute emails in trying to fit Lucy in!

We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Pyke Kennels to anyone."

"At last i have found a brilliant place to leave my dog daisy when i'm away. I have tried a number of kennels and been disappointed with them all. Daisy is very attatched to me as we spend all day together, but she has been more than happy to stay  with angela for a day then over night then for 10 days. I could always tell that she wasn't happy at the other kennels when i picked her up, she would be anxious and in need of a good walk! But here she gets the exercise she needs and the attention. The big plus for me was being able to text angela while away to see how Daisy was. It really put my mind at rest and i could enjoy my holiday fully.When i picked her up after 10 days there she was a happy dog and not at all anxious. I would highly recommend Pyke boarding kennels to everyone.

Thanks again Angela. Daisy sends you a big kiss. x"

I wanted to write and say how very grateful I am to you and your team for giving my 3 dogs a home away from home.  With our chaotic lifestyle and our obsessiveness with giving the dogs a good life, continuity and love....you have become an integral part of our family.  Mr French, Cocoa and Chelsea are so happy coming to you and

me and my family can rest easy that the dogs are loved, cared for, exercised and happy.  Thank you for enabling us to carry on with our lives by giving our dogs a lovely place to "holiday" with you.

Best wishes,

Lisa.

"We took our dog "Lady" to Pyke Boarding Kennels for the first time at Easter  and we couldn't have been happier.  Angela was welcoming, kind and understanding, she knew I was uneasy about leaving Lady, (she's a half blind, deaf OAP now!).  She was kind enough to send us messages and even a photo of Lady whilst we were away so that I knew she had settled in well (that's a service I have never received from any kennel I have previously used).  Lady has developed a liking for "Marrowbones" since her stay with Angela, as they provide them for the dogs on a weekly basis.  Its reassuring to know when you are away, your dog is in a clean and well look after kennels. I have since recommend Pyke Kennels to my friends as they will feel at ease leaving their pets in such caring hands."

I have recently boarded my two dogs and parrot at Pyke Boarding Kennels and Cattery, and we have been very pleased with the care and service provided. Pyke provided a very clean and safe environment for my pets, and gave us the reasurrance that everything was going to be OK while we were on holiday. Angela didn't mind us contacting her and asking how things were going, and this gave us peace of mind, and helped us relax. On our return, all pets were safe, clean and happy. We highly recommend the safe, happy and friendly environment at Pyke, and we would use their services in the future.

"Thank you for looking after our two dogs so well.  You did a fantastic job in the extremely cold weather.  As a result of staying at your kennels our dogs have overcome some of their nervousness of other dogs.  We also appreciate you coming out later than anticipated when our return flight was delayed.  In addition you were good in sending us messages of comfort while we were away which helped us enjoy our holiday and assure us that the dogs were in good hands"

"I have been taking my dogs to the Pyke Boarding Kennels for some time now and have always found them to be helpful and understanding, Angela knows how we feel when we leave our dogs and makes the transition of departing from them so easy as she gives them a fantastic welcome that before they know it we have gone. I have to say it is so reassuring to know when one is  away that the dogs are in a clean and well look after kennels. I always recommend Pyke Kennels to my friends as they will feel at ease leaving their pets in such caring hands."

"I have been very fortunate in finding Pyke Boarding Kennels for my two dogs to stay at.  Charlie and Toby, who are Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, have been staying there since they were puppies.  They have such a good time that I never have a problem leaving them.  Angela is so enthusiastic greeting them that they barely look back to say "goodbye".  It is quite a holiday for them both to meet other dogs and seeing Angela who makes such a fuss of them."

"My name is Moby and I am a 3 legged Terrier cross with my Big friend Misty who is a German Shepherd. We are both 11 years old and have been holidaying at Pyke Boarding Kennels for over 3 years now.  We love to come and stay with Kitty and Angela and if we are really lucky sometimes our holidays are over a month long. We just can’t wait to arrive and we are always a bit reluctant to go home at the end of our stay. By then our noses are black, cold and wet and our coats are shiny.  We just love the communal and convivial atmosphere at Kitty’s and Angela’s."
