After forty years at Wizardwood, avoiding catastrophes and doggedly looking after the multitude of (mostly) four footed charges entrusted to us – we have finally decided to take off our wellies, hang up the leads and from 31st December 2021 look forward to a long – and hopefully purrfect – retirement.
We would like to thank all our clients – many of whom have become close friends – and will look back with affection to the dogs (and until 2018 cats) that they entrusted to our care, and wish them all the very best for the future.
Established since 1982, Wizardwood Kennels is a family-run business providing high standards of dog care.
Whether your pet is boarding for a single night or several weeks, at Wizardwood Kennels your pet can expect a safe, secure and relaxing stay in our comfortable surroundings.
Wizardwood Kennels understand how stressful it can be leaving your pet.
We want you to leave your pet knowing that they will receive our personal care and attention at all times.
Suitable for all breeds, our kennels are light, spacious and heated. Your dog is able to move freely, indoors and outside, throughout the day.
Your pet will enjoy plenty of attention, including daily exercise, fun, games and lots of cuddles.
At Wizardwood Kennels, we strive to feed your dog to your exact requirements, maintaining routine at all times.
