Due to the new regulation we now believe we will NOT be able to pair dogs up as we have done for 50 years. We were under the impression that we would still be able to continue this as long as we had written authorization but I suspect this is now not the case.
Please bear with us as this means a huge amount of disruption with bookings, quoting & pricing & our systems etc. as well as complying with the new 35 page document for dogs & 37 pages for cats.
I am waiting on confirmation from the Council & DEFRA who now regulate.
There are three serious consequences to this
Price increase will be on the 1st February 2019. Date to be reviewed.
I normally quote on request but as a guide I estimate daily rates will be:
£20.64 Cocker Spaniel
Per day inc VAT.
Bookings made before 4th December 2018 should be at the old rates.
Those with more than one dog should not have more than the usual annual (roughly inflation) increase.
Only rumours but it also appears some kennels around the country are struggling to meet the new regulations and closing down. Those of older layout do not meet the new requirements. We consider our systems and exercise routines are about as good as it gets for the wellbeing of the dogs but we also have older style design. From what I understand we should still be OK but until full inspection we are also extremely concerned but if there are other closures I really do worry if there is going to be an even worse lack of availability next year, over and above the loss of Tall Timbers.
