Dovecote Farm Boarding Kennels and Cattery is situated at Brasside, Durham, DH1 5SQ. We have been looking after pets for our customers since the 1970’s, and pride ourselves on providing a top quality, friendly and personal service.

The dogs are walked individually on leads on our own private tracks in the Durham countryside twice a day, the kennels are heated when it turns cold. We are able to feed the dogs our own food or cater for special diets which you may provide. We insist that the dogs have a valid booster and a kennel cough vaccination. They must have a microchip. Dogs are always housed separately, although dogs from the same customer may share a kennel.

The cats are given a choice of food, as with the dogs sometimes people bring in special diets. The cattery is also heated when its cold, and the cats can have access to runs should they want fresh air. Again the cats are in separate pens unless they come from the same household. The cats must have an in date booster vaccination. You can see a cat pen by clicking here.

Our opening hours are 8.30 am until 6.00 pm including weekends and bank holidays. However we are closed every Wednesday.

Please telephone 0191 3862268 for all bookings and inquiries, (long rings please, we may be dog walking). You are welcome to visit, but please phone first, as we are often busy with the cats and dogs. If you wish to book in you will be able to do this on the phone.
