Boarding Kennels Testimonials

Dear Linda, Adrian & Staff

Chris & I want to thank you for the years of care you have given to our Charlie who died in my arms yesterday. He had liver and spleen cancer and there was nothing they could do for him.

He was almost 13 years old and you have looked after him since he was a few months old and he always loved coming to you – it was like his second home and I know that all of you there loved him. He was such a gentle boy and always seemed to be smiling.

Chris and I are completely heartbroken but we send you our best love and grateful thanks.

Dear Linda & Adrian

Thank you for looking after Archie & Odie. I’d like to say how much we appreciate you looking after them. I do recommend you whenever anyone is asking or looking for reliable, friendly and caring help in a loving environment for their dogs for holidays etc.  Where else would you get that kind of care!  So thank you again to Adrian and Linda and the lovely girls – you do a fab job.

Dear Linda & Adrian

We picked up Shelley today after her being with you for 2 weeks while we were on holiday and she looked great, very happy and healthy.  We visited the kennels before booking Shelley in and all the dogs loos so happy and relaxed, the same when we took Shelley to stay and when we picked her up, we have never used kennels before so were a bit apprehensive about leaving her, no more though, we will definitely using Pet Lodge again.. Thank you so much

Dear Linda & Adrian
We continue to bring our two Great Danes to you even though we now live in Dover. We continue to make the journey to Canterbury to leave our dogs at Pet Lodge as to our minds there is no where better!  We like to think that when we go on holiday our pets go on holiday too.  When we arrive at the gates our dogs know where they are and get very excited. It is never a worry to leave them as we know they are in good hands and are well cared for. They are greeted like royalty and love it..
Pet Lodge was recommended to us and we have been regular clients there for 3 years now and in turn we recommend Pet Lodge to all our friends.

Dear Linda and Adrian
We have again booked Bilbo (our 3 year old incredibly energeteic Parsons Jack Russel Terrier)  into your kennels. Thanks again for giving him his home from home.  Bilbo has boarded at your kennels on many occassions and we have never had one negative experience.  It’s obvious Bilbo enjoys his stay by the way he behaves the closer we get to Pet Lodge, (all that dog training to get him not to pull on the lead goes out of the window!)
We do not think of looking for kennels elsewhere and highly recommend you to our family and friends.

All the staff I have meet that do the walks are all very friendly and seem very capable of handling any size of dog.
Although Harvey is happy to go to your kennels he is always very happy when we arrive to collect him. I have recommended Pet Lodge to all my friends with dogs.

Ramsgate – July 09


Dear Adrian & Linda

My Parsons Jack Russell (Harvey) knows exactly where we are going when we pull into the road leading to Pet Lodge – everything starts to wiggle and wag! When he is doing this I know that the staff and owners treat him well or he would be cowering as Harvey is a rescue dog and has problems trusting some people.
The kennels are in excellent condition are large, are heated and a radio to give them comfort.


Dear Adrian & Linda
Our dog Charlie is alway kennelled at Pet Lodge and he gets so excited the moment the car turns into your lane. When we go away on holiday and weekend trips we never have to worry about him in any way because we know he is well looked after and exercised. Pet Lodge is like a second home to him – in fact his holiday home!

The kennels are kept spotlessly clean, the staff are very friendly and welcoming and the surroundings are spacious and interesting for doggy walking.

We would highly recommend Pet Lodge to anyone.

Dear Adrian & Linda
My Belgian Shepherd Lily & I are very happy to give Pet Lodge “FOUR PAWS” – our highest award for:
•   Top Class Accommodation
•   Lot’s of Exercise
•   Love & Attention
•   A safe & secure environment
We have been coming to Pet Lodge for 3 years and Lily gets very excited on arrival and simply can’t wait to see Adrian and Linda. This means I can go on holiday without one pang of guilt knowing she feels right at home.

Dear Linda, Adrian and All at Pet Lodge
Just to let you know the sad news that we lost Baloo a couple of weeks ago (he had a tumour). I would just like to say Thank You for being prepared to have him and for all your kind attention you gave him.  Linda, you are the only person besides family that managed to make friends with him!!
Thanks again

Gretchen Hunt – December 2007

Dear Pet Lodge
Thanks very much for making my dachshund, Gertie, so welcome!  You could not find a more brilliant advertisement for Pet Lodge as when I arrive with her I park my car at the gate, let her off the lead and she legs it with great speed and enthusiasim across the grass and to your entrance gate where she waits with her tail wagging furiously for me to take her inside.

If Ghertie could talk I have a suspicion she’d tell me that Pet Lodge is more interesting than her home!
Best Wishes

Val Hennessy & Ghertie – 12th November 2007


Dear Adrian and Linda
We put Joss into your kennels a 12 year old and she came out aged six or seven,,
When we picked her up she was in magnificent condition – best ever – full of fun and she obviously adored all the pats, cuddles, love, food and walks she got at Pet Lodge.  Naturally we’ll recommend you to anyone who owns an animal and plans a holiday and who lives in this part of the world.
Thanks again

Dear Linda, Adrian and Daniel
Thank you very much for caring for Daisy and Mauve whilst I was in hospital .  After their last experience in kennels it was a joy to see them looking so happy and relaxed  and I hope if the need arises in the future I will be able to leave them in your safe and capable hands.
Good luck in your new venture, if all your clients are as satisfied as I am Pet Lodge will be a great success.
Yours sincerely
