Comments from many of our happy customers

We have used Dunston Lodge for our dogs Maggie and Betty on at least four occasions now and cannot recommend them highly enough. Our girls are always happy and relaxed when we pick them up, clearly having been cared for very well, and they always look and smell amazing!

The staff are courteous and friendly and the high staff to dog ratio reassures us that they are getting the care and attention we would like. Whenever we have made specific requests in relation to Maggie or Betty’s care, these have always been listened to, understood and adhered to – allowing us to go away with complete peace of mind that they are being well looked after.

Having used a number of boarding kennels over the years we have found Dunston to be the best – it will always be our first choice.

Many thanks for looking after our dogs so well!

Maggie has been coming to Dunston for quite a while now and we wouldn’t dream of taking her anywhere else. Richard and all his staff are brilliant and we trust them completely to do the best for her. We relax knowing she’s well looked after.

I have been using Dunston Lodge Kennels for my dogs, Potter and Macy, for the past 6 years. Before I first used them I visited several kennels in the surrounding areas of Chesterfield and Sheffield. I owned my own kennels for 7 years in the late eighties and early nineties, so I like to think I know what to look for. Apart from the modern spacious rooms for the dogs, the knowledge about the dogs and the care that they receive from Richard and all his staff is outstanding.

Every time I take Potter and Macy to stay they can’t get out of the car quick enough to go and see the staff. As long as Richard and his staff are at Dunston Lodge I certainly will not be going anywhere else.

Nigel has been here twice now and each time he returns he is a happier dog and loves all the staff at Dunston Lodge. Thank you so much for looking after my little boy so well! He looks and smells amazing!

Three words sum up Dunston Lodge Kennels; Friendly, Flexible and Professional. Richard and his team offer a superb service – our dog, Scamp, has been a regular for 10 years, need I say more?

Our dog Millie has just returned from her fifth visit to Dunston Lodge beautifully groomed and full of beans (as we have come to expect). Our thanks to all the staff and the management. Dunston Lodge is without doubt our Kennels of choice and we would recommend the service you provide without any hesitation whatsoever. Keep up the great standards.

Lizzie asked me to thank you for yet another lovely stay – her 3rd so far this year. Despite her advancing years she still manages to race around with her busybody approach. She is in her 14th year at Dunston so like her Airdale predecessor always looks forward to her next visit and the ‘spoiling’ that goes with it.
