Interesting Fact!

Did you know?

A DOGS NOSE.............

No two dogs noses are the same. A dog's nose is the equivalent of a human fingerprint, with each having a unique pattern. 






Wow! We can't believe we have neglected the website a little bit with our updates. We have been super busy caring for all our guests. You may have seen on our facebook page that we have once again been awarded  5 STAR rated boarding licences for the kennels and cattery which we are immensely proud of. Maintaining our higher standards to meet this accreditation is down to the whole team here at Drum. 




Morag talks about her experience and that of the team in looking after rescue dogs in kennels - have a read over at Morags Blog.

YES, you read it right!! It pains us to have to write this BUT we have been capturing not only on our CCTV but face to face, persons who deem it acceptable to relieve themselves at Drum Kennels Car Park, in and around vehicles & our property. I’m sure you will agree with us that this is disgusting and disrespectful & the culprits are CUSTOMERS!!! 

We know this message won’t be seen by all, but this behaviour is really upsetting us. I’m sure the majority of you are all as appalled as we are that this is even happening. It is, after all, our home!!!! 

Please don’t be tempted to use the car park as a toilet. It’s not nice ☹️ and it’s all on camera.

Happy New Year and here's to a better one ahead. During this current lockdown we are still open and are happy to accept your cats and dogs if you need to board them for one of the permitted reasons to leave home such as if you cannot work from home, medical appointments and others as allowed by law. We can offer day boarding and overnight stays. Please give us a call if you wish to enquire. This is a difficult time for us and your continued support means so much. Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for other news/updates. Kind regards, Morag.

WE ARE OPEN! We have always been open and will continue to be open during this second lockdown for any customers who require boarding of their dog or cat. Whilst we know travel is not permitted either here at home or internationally unless for work purposes, we can still help if you need day care or overnight or longer stays due to your work commitments, medical services, emergencies and other exceptional circumstances as laid out in the government advice. Please get in touch if we can be of assistance. We are COVID safe and take all the required precautions to protect you and ourselves. 

 King regards.


Morag & team.
