After over 40 years of running Jane Parker’s Boarding Kennels & Cattery as a family business, it is with much sadness that we have decided to step away from the kennel & cattery business.


This has been an extremely difficult decision for us and not one we have taken lightly. Running a business that is open 365 days a year, has been a huge commitment over the years and after going through such a turbulent and uncertain time during Covid, we have decided that we want the freedom to enjoy more time with our family.


We have met so many lovely people and animals during our time and it has been our absolute pleasure to look after many thousands of dogs and cats over the years. It has been extremely rewarding to see nervous owners and animals arriving at the kennels for the first time and very happy owners and animals leaving after their stay. We would like to thank you all for trusting us with your family members.


We will continue to operate the kennels and cattery with our normal love and care until we close on Sunday 11th September 2022. 


The good news is that there will still be a dog kennels here at 15 Toms Lane. From 12th September until mid-October, lots of improvement works will take place in the kennel buildings and the kennels will re-open as a boarding kennels on Friday 14th October 2022 under new management. The new management are Canine Karma.


Canine Karma will be taking what we currently offer to a whole new level. They already run a very successful day care centre locally with a highly trained team and are incredibly talented at what they do. Dogs will be stimulated and entertained throughout the whole day, with many different activities, daily hikes and basic training. We believe this is what many people have been asking for and we are excited to send you further details in the next few weeks.


Sadly however, the cattery will not be reopening.


In the meantime, we look forward to continuing to care for your animals throughout the rest of the year until Sunday 11th September 2022 and we will have a new outdoor area for our dog guests to play in from mid-March.


Kind Regards,



Stephen & Alison Parker
