Dog on Holiday Kennels

Day Care and Boarding Facilities

We offer a family-run kennels, situated between Mountrath and Portlaoise, Co.Laois. Comfortable and spacious kennels are incorporated into our garden so your dog is fully part of our everyday life.

Animals have always been a big part of our family life and at the moment we have two cats and two dogs. Wanting to be a vet when I grew up was a dream that evaporated when my big brother pointed out I would never be able to put a dog to sleep! How right he was!

So I grew up and became a nurse instead.

My husband has a farming background and is also a nurse.

In April 2015, I successfully completed a Diploma in Dog Psychology, and in May, a Canine First Responder Course (First Aid). Over the last couple of years we have steadily built up our business of day care and boarding kennels. We also now offer a limited dog-taxi service.

Our kennels are situated between Portlaoise and Mountrath. We have the advantage of being in the country surrounded by our own land where we walk the dogs and yet we are a stone’s throw away from the main road and motorway.
