Aquithie Kennels & Cattery nestles on the edge of a pine forest amidst mature gardens. Our 40 acres of land are home to nature of every kind. Our daily walks can take us through our private wood where rabbits play undisturbed and the deer roam. Our lake is a nesting site for several species of birds.
Why Aquithie Boarding
We cater for all pets
I have so many wonderful things to say about Su and Aquithie Kennels. I recently arrived from the US with two dogs in tow--with the same paperwork. One was released to us the other put in quarantine. As we are based out of Scotland I chose Aquithie Kennels as it was the closest kennel that manages quarantine. I was distressed to put it mildly. I was able to connect with Su quickly and she immediately got the process started to transfer Shakko to Aquithie Kennels. Within a day of his arrival she and the vet were able to see that he met the requirements for entry and had been erroneously quarantined. Su then helped appeal Shakko's case quickly so he was back with me in ten days. Su went above and beyond to communicate with me regularly, even when I was perhaps messaging too much. She put me at ease and took time to educate herself on his breed and listen to my concerns. When I picked Shakko up he was in good spirits and had been well taken care of. Having never been kenneled before I was glad he went through it with Aquithie as I couldn't have asked for better care for him during this process. If you have to board or quarantine your dog in Scotland (or the UK) and don't know where to go, I recommend them with every fibre of my being. Su, her husband, and her team care about each of the animals and their human families that stay at Aquithie.
We have just taken our west highland terrier out of Aquithie kennels, after a 12 day stay. We have no doubt she enjoyed her stay. I would recommend them to anyone who has to board their pet. The staff were helpful when we boarded her and made sure she has everything she needed. They followed all our instructions that excluded her medication Well done Aquithie.
Our rescue dog was under the care of Su and Vicki at Aquithie during a quarantine period. We are so grateful for the love and care they gave our girl, especially during such a confusing time for her. When we came to pick her up it was clear she had such an amazing bond with both women, and that she had been well cared for by loving hands. Would highly recommend Aquithie both for quarantine and kennels. What special ladies they both are, I can't describe how grateful I am to them 🙂
Good facilities, and very friendly staff and owner. They look after our dog very well. She is always happy excited when we drop her in, and she's always been well cared for when we pick her up
My labradoodle (Dougal), kennels here and he is very well looked after. All the staff I have met ( Vicky, Euan and Su the owner) are all really friendly and seem very caring towards Dougal. I have recommended the kennels to a couple of friends and they have been impressed too.
Used several times now and my dog is happy to go and the staff are great with her. Always comes back happy and in good condition.
Our old, German Shepherd gentleman was very well looked after by the team at Aquithie. He had numerous problems - including bad joints and bowel problems while there, and nothing was too much trouble. He was given special food at my request, walked at no extra charge and was a very happy dog when I collected him again. I would highly recommend Aquithie Kennels - they really know what they are doing!
