    The kennels have been built to standards that are considerably higher than those normally associated with boarding kennels. The design is unique and provides the optimum for care and comfort and enables high standards of cleanliness and hygiene. The kennels have a central corridor layout with individual attached runs and both the runs and the sleeping compartments are covered with an insulated canopy to keep dogs dry in wet weather and cool in the extremes of summer heat. The sleeping compartments have insulation under the floor, overhead and in the cavity walls. Entry and exit to the attached runs is controlled by insulated pop-holes. The interior has a thermostatically controlled central heating system. In summer ventilation is increased by forced air extraction through fan assisted trunking which provides continuous air changes.

    Hygiene and cleanliness have been a major factor in the design and planning. The floor areas and lower part of the walls are treated with a three coat epoxy resin system to provide seamless impervious surfaces.

    Very large wet weather hard runs and dry weather grass exercise compounds have been provided and are enclosed with an eight foot high security fence which incorporates an anti-scramble barrier.

    The design enables owners to board their dogs with total confidence, particularly during the cold months of winter, when there is often concern for the well being of pets who have become accustomed to life in a modern centrally heated home. The construction far surpasses the requirements of the 1996 Model Licence Conditions.
