Johnduffswood Boarding Kennels is set amidst rural countryside approximately 1 mile from the village of Old Leighlin in Co Carlow. We are a small professionally run business dedicated to the care and wellbeing of your dog/s. This, coupled with a wealth of experience enables us to provide a high level of care for your dog/s including administration of medications and specialist care for those that are young or elderly as well as those with special requirements due to illness or immobility problems.
We are a fully insured purpose built boarding kennels and members of the Irish Boarding Kennel Association.
Every kennel provides a spacious sleeping area with its own private attached run. We welcome visits to discuss your dog’s individual requirements and for you to view our kennels.
Our larger kennels allow for those who have families of dogs who wish them to be boarded together.
In addition to your dogs private run we have three large grassed areas and one sand area that are fenced in where your dog gets the chance to run around and let off steam in addition to their daily walks.
In the winter months each kennel has its own heat and for those dogs that feel the cold a bit more we have warming pads as well that go under the blankets and stay warm all night – great for the older dog or those that like their comforts.
Each dog is an individual and therefore we spend some time getting to know them when they first come in. Any beds, favourite toys or treats can be brought in to make your dog more at home.
We stock Madras (Beef and Chicken) as well as general treats for your dogs stay.If you would prefer to bring your pets food we are happy to store it and make his/her meals up as per your instructions at no additional cost. We have a fridge for fresh food storage.
Whether your pet is on long term medication, or just a short course of treatment, we are happy to administer them at no extra cost. We cannot accept animals which have any condition which is contagious.
All dogs coming to stay with us must have had a Booster and Kennel Cough Vaccine. Please bring your dog’s vaccination card with you when checking them in.
We will ask you for your Vets details for the rare case where a vet is required. This allows us to obtain any medical history if necessary.
We have a Vet on call 24/7.
Prices are charged by the night and based on the size of your dog/s. Your kennel is reserved for you from 9 am on the day your dog/s are checked-in until closing time on the day they are checked-out.
