I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stablecroft, it’s a great kennels, with lovely facilities. Ryan showed me around when we first arrived.. so I could see where my dogs were while I was away... the other dogs there were extremely calm, and happy to be there...which was a good sign... I was extremely happy with the amount of care and attention my dogs received when staying here.. they are older so I get nervous leaving them in new kennels.. but Ryan took excellent care of them.. I felt like nothing was too much trouble...he really cares about the well-being of all the dogs in his care... a great kennels all round... More...

Ryan is fantastic with Bertie. Bertie is always wagging his tail like mad when we arrive in the morning!

Dexter has been going to Stablecroft since he was 16 weeks old, he’s almost 5 now and he absolutely loves it. So much soo I think he prefers his time there than at home! He gets soo excited when we drive up the lane. Dexter does daycare 5 days a week and boards at Stablecroft when I’m away. Ryan and Rita are amazing and have such incredible facilities. More...

Rubee my 19 week puppy Cockapoo has been going to Stablecroft since she was 12 weeks and loves it. She goes 2 days a week and trots off in the morning very happy despite being very clingy at home.☺️ Very pleased with everything

It was the first time we had left our dog anywhere and both my husband and I were so worried as she spends all her time with us. Thankfully she loved her time at Stablecroft and came back looking so fit and beautifully groomed. I will do the same when she next visits. I can thoroughly recommend it. More...

Ryan is great with Apollo. Apollo loves the company of other dogs and comes home shattered. It is evident he is in safe hands

We have tried a few pet sitters in the area and found Stablecroft to be a cut above the rest. Ryan is very presentable and was accepted by our cats. He went to extra lengths to reduce the impact that our absence had on our cats including cleaning up after them and picking up carpets where needed. We will be using Stablecroft again and will recommend them to our friends. Thank you for a great service. More...

Marlow has experienced every Stablecroft service on offer; dog walking, boarding, doggy day care and now grooming. Stablecroft does a fantastic job of taking care of Marlow and has even catered to his special needs while undergoing rehab for his hip and split paw. Marlow becomes alert and excited when we ask, "Do you want to go see Ryan & your friends?" I can tell Marlow has had a great day at Stablecroft when he comes home eats and barely makes it to his bed before he's out like a light. Thank you, Ryan & Katrina, for taking such good care of our boy. More...

Our Cocker Spaniel Maisie has stayed on several occasions over the last year and she has been cared for brilliantly. The outdoor space and boarding facilities are great and she is full of excitement when we drop her off.

My dog, Charlie, has been going to Stablecroft since he was 5 months old. He's always had a lovely time and been very well cared for. Great atmosphere with lots of good facilities for the dogs and he always comes home tired and happy! Highly recommended! More...

Our two dogs have now stayed at Stablecroft for three nights, following their taster day. I was impressed with the facilities, the standard of care and the interaction with the dogs by the staff. Both of ours have dodgy stomachs and Ryan and Rita made sure that they were fed their own food. They came home happily tired, but not with the "wild eyed and stressed" look that we've seen when they've stayed at other places - in fact they seemed really content and calm, even though they had obviously had loads of play time. Your dogs do need to be sociable and happy to mix with other friendly dogs but there are also places for them to chill and it is apparent that Stablecroft have really thought about what makes a good environment. Very happy owners and happy to recommend. More...

We have used Stablecroft a number of times now when we go away and our dog absolutely loves it! I couldn't bear the idea of kennels for Albert so stablecroft is perfect! Albert loves being with the pack and it is clear to see Ryan is brilliant with the dogs!! More...

Left my dog Mylo at stablecroft for a week, and I can say nothing but great things about it. Ryan and Rita are great, and Mylo loved meeting and playing with all the other dogs. Highly recommend Stablecroft to anyone who needs boarding for their dog :). More...

We leave our four month old puppy with the guys at Stablecroft and they do such a great job looking after him. Claude cant wait to jump out of the car when we arrive to drop him off and it's great to have such lovely people up the road to look after our dog.

Our dog loves his weekly visit to Ryan and the team. He is always so eager to get into the enclosure and start playing with his pack of friends. Thanks for looking after him so well, it's a great place to be! More...

Our dog Flash had been going to Stablecroft for about 2 months- his favourite pastime is running around like a looney. Whenever he's had a day at daycare we come home and he's absolutely exhausted- we take this as a sign he's having plenty of fun!

I highly recommend Stablecroft. My dog Alaska has been several times now and is always happy and excited to go there. It's a safe environment for the dogs to play in and socialise and I never worry about Alaska when she's there. I've also had to drop her off unexpectedly at times but Ryan, Rita and the others are always accommodating and are very pleasant to deal with. It's clear that they love dogs and know what they are doing. Stablecroft came highly recommended to me and I can see why. Thanks guys! More...

Buster is now into his third week at Stablecroft and he is thoroughly enjoying himself. He comes home one happy chappie and spends the rest of the evening zonked. The dogs have a wonderful and well thought out enclosure to spend the day in, lovely paddocks in which to play and burn off energy and lovely walks to go on. He is there 5 days a week and it is a wonderful feeling going to work knowing that not only will he be looked after but also loved. I can’t thank Ryan and Rita enough for the peace of mind that this brings. You can see that they really care for their charges. More...

Our Vinny loves to stay at Stablecroft. It can be a special treat for him as the experience there extends his social life too in a safe, reliable and lovely place being hosted by Ryan and Rita. They are great! Highly recommended! More...

Love Stablecroft! Ryan and Rita are so accommodating and my Beagle Lola loves her little stays. Biggest like is the enclosure where they are freely and safely allowed to run and play. Highly recommended.

Our Weimaraner puppy Bonnie goes to doggie day care and has also had a 2 week stay whilst we were on holiday. Ryan & Rita are great people and Bonnie trots off when dropped off without a care in the world! I would recommend Stablecroft to anyone wanting someone to look after their dogs. More...

Our Labrador Axel is usually either walked by Ryan or Rita , three days/week and also does the occasional day boarding and overnight stay @ Stablecroft- has been doing so for the last 1 year. Ryan & Rita are really lovely people, polite and courteous, and an absolute delight to deal with. I have never been let down by them, in fact they have come to my rescue several times, at the shortest possible notice. As for Axel, I am short of words to describe his uncontrollable excitement just at the mention of the words 'Ryan's here'. We are certain ,he absolutely loves every minute there ,socialising with his big and small friends, as we can never hold him back when we drop him off. Thank you Ryan & Rita for your services. Would gladly recommend you to anybody . More...

We leave our golden retriever Poppy at Stablecroft regularly. Poppy has a great time socialising with her other doggy friends and we always feel secure in the knowledge that she is safe and well looked after. Ryan has set up a great doggy day care business and I would definitely recommend him. He's great with the dogs, reliable and flexible all the things you would require when considering pet boarding. Thank you Stablecroft More...

Millie has been going to Stablecroft for about 2 years when we go on holiday and odd days or weekends. It is evident that she loves going because as soon as we pull into the driveway she gets excited. We are totally comfortable leaving her with Ryan. Ryan is very reliable and flexible and clearly cares about the animals he looks after. His prices are reasonable too. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants good quality care for their pet whilst they are working or going on a long vacation. Thanks for being there Ryan and Rita. More...

Ryan is our "cat sitter" for when we are travelling and I can truly say that he ticks all the boxes: Reliable, pet lover, punctual, and always there when we need him. I can highly recommend him to look after your pet when you are away. More...

we had an unfortunate flooding of our property back in June 2014 and we had to place Carlos in permanent kennels for 6 months,this was such a distressing time but then we met Ryan and Rita. Carlos was so well looked after and he loved his time with Stablecroft he always looked so happy when we saw him! so much so that even after moving back home we now have Carlos at Stablecroft while we're at work because he loves being in doggie day care and has a great time running around with the others. would highly recommend Ryan and Rita to anyone who is looking for that right place to leave their beloved canine friend thank you both More...

I take my dog Stanley to Ryan regularly. Stan is always super happy to see Ryan and comes home exhausted after a great day playing with the other dogs and lovely long walks. I tried other day care options but none were a patch on a Stablecroft. My daughter also takes her dog Darcy to Ryan for day care. Can't recommend Ryan enough. He is totally flexible and a pleasure to deal with More...
