About the owners, Robin and Anita Claxton

Quite simply, we love dogs! We have always had a house full of our own (we currently have 2 Rottweilers, 3 Cocker Spaniels, a Springer Spaniel and a 3 legged Border Collie) and have had years of fun with them!

Owning dog boarding kennels had been a dream of ours for many years and when we managed to fulfil that dream we were pleasantly surprised by the available facilities at Shepherd House. Our aim was to find something that we would be happy to use for our own dogs if we were ever looking to use boarding kennels ourselves. Shepherd House ticked all the boxes!

Each time that we visited the kennels, the dogs were happy, content and importantly, because of the way that the kennel blocks are positioned, the dogs cannot see each other meaning that they are not constantly barking at each other.  The accommodation was, and still is, second to none with more than enough space, both within the kennels and in the outside play areas for each dog to enjoy proper exercise.
