Welcome to Dukesmead
Please note that no admittance under any circumstances will be granted unless an appointment has been made - this is due to health and safety as well as the security and wellbeing of the animal that are in our care.
Check-in and check-out are strictly by appointment during opening hours so that we can provide a personal service for each individual pet.
Check-in and check-out appointments may be arranged outside of our opening hours if necessary, subject to availability and are by prior arrangement only (surcharges apply!).
Dukesmead also provides a Doggy Day Care service (subject to availability). Check-in and check-out appointments for Doggy Day Care are not restricted to usual opening hours and therefore the out of hours surcharge is waived.
We are a very popular, busy kennels therefore appointment times and opening hours must be adhered to.
We come highly recommended from previous clients (and their pets!) and are used by many vets for their own pets. In fact, our catchphrase is "Your best friend is our best friend".
Annual dates of closure: Dukesmead is closed to the public in early February and mid November (please check our Facebook page for updates).
We are closed for drop off and collection on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Years Day and Easter Sunday.
