Our Story

Established in 2014

Sven and Dewi Hasselmann have been operating this business since 2014. Before this they both worked in ” Human Hospitality Industry” And decided Dogs and Cats are their passion.

They pride themselves on providing a warm, clean, safe and comfortable environment for your pets to enjoy a holiday of their own while you are away.

They have both enjoyed working from home with their own little menagerie three dogs two cats and one bird luckily will be growing more.

Their home is just a five metre away from the main kennels entrance so they can monitor them 24/7 if needed.

You can book doggy daycare, kennels and cattery long and short term with us.
