Feeding

Dogs will be fed twice daily – breakfast and tea-time and a choice of dog food is available. Special dietary requirements can also be catered for.

Medications

If required, in your absence, medications will be given and pre-arranged veterinary appointments at Dalriada Veterinary Surgery can be met. Please advise us prior to arrival.

Collection and Delivery Service

For those owners who experience difficulty with collecting their animals within our opening times we can collect and deliver – please discuss with us when booking.

Availability

We are open all year round for boarding dogs; however, it is always advisable to check availability as early as possible to allow time to arrange for vaccinations if required and to avoid disappointment. It is always preferrable to take bookings by telephone as there is a lot of information regarding your pet to be taken, however, you can also contact us through our FaceBook page Achnabreac Kennels & Cattery.

Vaccine Requirements

Every dog being admitted to Achnabreac Kennels must have a current vaccine certificate issued by a veterinary surgeon and in addition must be vaccinated against kennel cough. We regret that no dog will be admitted for kennelling without a fully valid vaccine certificate. We trust that owners will regularly worm and apply tick/flea repellents to their dogs. For advice on wormers and tick/flea repellents, please discuss with your vet.
