Worth The Journey…

“ Our two Jack Russells, one very energetic and the other a bit timid, stayed for over two weeks at Top Dog. We have researched and seen a number of boarding places before settling with Top Dog. Our main criteria is to ensure that our dogs get as much exercise, played with and interaction as possible, of which Top Dog duly obliged. Our dogs returned to us in a very noticeable fitter physical state. The dogs were also happy and their usual self. We also know that the dogs have been eating well. We have chosen to provide our own food and in quantity we believed is enough, but were surprise when Martin thoughtfully contacted us to check on the food type so he could provide more of the same. Martin did advise from experience and at the onset that with the amount of exercise the dogs will be getting, we might need to increase their food intake :-) The rooms are a good size, well maintained, light and airy, each with its own attached covered run overlooking the large exercise paddock, heating and air conditioning, and made more cosy with extras such as TV/DVD player, rug, and fake fire. Throughout the time we were away, we could easily keep in touch with Martin and Lesley to find out how the dogs were doing. We could tell from speaking to them that they have got to know the dogs well and had spent lots of time with them, which is appreciated. We can honestly say that Top Dog, Matin Lesley and the team have our recommendation. It is a 300 miles roundtrip for us but well worth the journey… ”

Luxury Holiday Home For Dogs

“ We would like to take this opportunity to THANK Martin, Lesley and ALL the TEAM at TOP DOG, for making it an easy descision for us to leave our 2 Bichon Frise Lennie + Lola in such a well looked after “home from home”environment.

From the first time we rang to arrange to take a look around, we knew this was going to be the very best, and we were not disappointed. We knew Martin and Lesley were dog lovers from the outset before meeting either of them. They understood that our pets were important to us and were extremely spoilt, our only one request from the outset was they weren’t mixed with other dogs during their stay, but were advised that none of the dogs bought in were mixed, which was the confirmation we wanted to hear. When we arrived we were shown around each individual room/ suite, Poker room, the meadows, country cottage to name but a few, TVs, radios, heating, electric fire + webcam. We were shown the kitchens, the washroom the outer area where more work is in hand, the smaller garden and the larger paddock, we knew that this would be a great holiday for Lennie and Lola and our minds were made up this is the best of the best.

We booked a trial night to see how they got on, and they came home exhausted from all the walks and playtime activities. So we booked them in whilst we had our holiday. We received regular texts advising how they were and what they were up to, it put our minds at ease that they had settled in and were behaving themselves. We will most definitely be booking Lennie + Lola’s holidays here again, and would + have recommended to anyone who loves dogs; this is the BEST holiday for your pets by far.

We live in Lancashire and travelled the 1.5hours (3hr round trip) to take them there, because it’s worth it. Lola didn’t want to come home she loved it that much… ”
