At Cawdor Kennels we are dedicated to keeping your devoted companion happy, healthy and amused during their stay. The key to the "happy" is providing an extra level of attention to each individual animal in our care. We find that the dogs adjust well to our kennels due to the level of care and attention, making them feel "secure". Everyday our guests enjoy individual walks or play sessions as well as cuddles and love!!


Sylvia and Bill Van Atta have 18 rescued dogs of their own and also run Many Tears Animal Rescue from the property in conjunction with the boarding kennels. After seeing how some animals are treated and often become distressed whilst in kennels, Sylvia and Bill felt that they wanted to have kennels where the guestswere to be entertained and cared as if they were their own pets!

Sylvia and Bill see each animal as an individual and will go to any length to ensure their happiness. Their work with dogs has blessed them with a great understanding of the dogs mind, this enables them to create a unique friendship with even the most shy pet.
