In October 2018 new inspection requirements were implemented by DEFRA under the revised ‘Animal Welfare Regulations’.
We have been inspected every year previously and it has been recognised that we have made significant improvements to the boarding facilities.
In February we were inspected to the new regulations which required us to demonstrate in much more detail how we met the new regulations and new star rating criteria.
If anyone is interested in reading the new regulations we have a copy available at the kennels or you can search the Internet! It’s a complex process and has required a lot of effort to understand and comply.
One of the requirements is to display our licence number and named licence holders on our website. As the licence has to be displayed at the kennels anyway we have decided to upload a copy of the licence here. All boarding kennels, pet shops and home boarders have to be licenced and make a copy available.
One of the challenges we have faced is our ability to meet the highest standards of the new regulations which we need to meet to get 5 stars. So achieving a 3 star rated / 2 year licence is a great achievement and we will continue to make the significant improvements in a strive to get 5 stars.
If anyone wants more information then please do not hesitate to ask us – as always, everyone is welcome to view our facilities at anytime, just ask for a show around.
