Murrayhill Kennels, Dog Boarding and Day Care

Your Dog will have a ball at our place!

We provide Dog Boarding and Day care services in Melton Mowbray, Oakham, Rutland and the East Midlands

At Murrayhill Boarding Kennels, we know that pets deserve to be treated like part of the family—because they are. And when your pets can’t be at home with you, we go out of our way to make them feel safe and welcome with us.

We are delighted to announce that following rigorous inspection, we have been awarded a five star rating by Melton Borough Council under the Animal Welfare Regulations 2018. Licence No AWL0019. (Licence holder: Rob Buckton)

For more than 40 years, Murrayhill Kennels has been providing Dog Boarding and Day care services for dogs and cats in the Melton Mowbray, Oakham, Rutland and East Leicestershire area. When you go on holiday, you can feel confident that your pets will be looked after 24 hours a day, 7 days a week because we live on the kennel site. Each of our specially built kennels offers a raised bed with Vetbedding, cleaned and disinfected in anticipation of your pet’s arrival, as well as modern insulation and individual heating so they’ll stay cozy all night long. And when they’re not snuggling up inside, they can take advantage of their own outside run and our paddock—fenced in and secure, of course.

Take a look at You Tube. Milo, the Cockapoo and his friends, the spaniels, having fun in the paddock.

Look at our Facebook page to see what’s currently happening and the nice things people say about us.

Murrayhill Kennels is under the proud ownership of Rob and Fiona Buckton. If you haven’t stayed with us before, please take advantage of our introductory offer for our pool.

If you wonder what the picture is – it’s Bobby, one of our Goldies, helping in the garden!
