What Our Customers Say
We used Haven Kennels in August 2017 for the first time whilst on a vacation to France. Brian and the staff at the kennels were very pleasant on arrival when we dropped our dog Poppy off with them for a week. Poppy came home in a lovely happy state and settled back to home life with no issues whatsoever. I would like to thank Brian and all the staff for their care towards Poppy whilst there, it was reassuring knowing that she was in a safe environment and receiving such good care whilst we were away. I will certainly be happy bringing Poppy back here on our next vacation and would recommend Haven Kennels to others. Thanks again, Karen Moss.

Regular visitors to Haven - just had a long weekend this pat week. Our 3 dogs have been coming here for over 4 years now. Fantastic team looking after our 3 - very dedicated and caring. We have our 3 bathed before picking them up and they are always healthy looking on pick up (although a little hoarse). They are happy for us to call up and see how they are doing, especially if its a long stay - we had a 4 week oversees trip 2 years ago to visit family.Highly recommend the Haven for your pets - ours will be back for a short visit again in the next couple of weeks. Happy to answer any questions, if I can.

Amazing, found Brian the owner , only to helpful from the moment we arrived , even dealing with a problem from our vet at companion care Folkestone. Our dogs Marley jasper and our cat Alvin have been going to Haven, for 4 years and not once have we worried about our dogs in their care. Our dogs are like our children and we would not trust them with just anybody. Jasper our springer had a wash and cut and looks amazing and just so he wasn't left out Marley our Labrador had a wash and brush, again looking amazing. Really can't speak highly enough of everybody involved in the care of our dogs. Once again thank you Brian and the rest of your team. See you soon Paul and Emma Burton.

We bought our Airedale Terrier, Floyd from Haven over seven years ago and he has been going back regularly for hand stripping and also when we go away on holiday. Floyd is always eager to get out of the car when we pull up outside when dropping him off and goes off with the kennel staff without even looking back.Whenever we pick him up he's as happy and healthy as when we dropped him off. We would always use Haven even though there are kennels closer to home because we know Floyd is well looked after

I have used Haven Kennels for over 15 years, I would not trust anyone else to look after my Great Dane.The facilities are very good and it is superbly clean. The owner is not only very handsome but also very knowledgeable. Really a great chap who would always do his best to accommodate if you are delayed in picking up your pet. Highly recommended.

We boarded our Lab here for the first time in May and we have to say this place is excellent. Staff were extremely helpfull and had even given him a bath so he came home in excellent condition.We were also pleased that our dog seemed so happy and calm when we collected him and he settled straight back in at home as if he had never been away which was also a good sign.We look forward to bringing him back here next time.!
