K9 Country Kennels

New boarding kennels in Kaplica

I recently met Rose Bastow who, together with Suzanne Fehmi, opened a new boarding kennels in Kaplica last February and named it K9 Country Kennels.

K9 is situated in a large valley below Kantara Castle in Kaplica.   While your pets are with K9 there is a 24 hour coverage, so your precious pets will not feel abandoned and forgotten.   At the moment they only cater for dogs, but they aim to build a Cattery next year.   Their main priority at the moment is to increase their facility for the dogs by building a further 10 kennels.  At the moment there are 18 kennels which can cater for around 42 dogs.

Your pet will be walked twice daily in the beautiful rural country side.  Staff are on site 24 hours a day, to supervise and care for your pets and are available to take your pets to the vet if they are on any treatments.

There is long term boarding for preparation for travel if required.

Suzanne was the Manager of the Animal Rescue Centre for 5 years where she supervised the care of hundreds of dogs and up to 60 cats.  Her love for dogs did not stop at work and quite often she brought sick animals home and cared for them through the night.

Rose, also worked at the Rescue Centre looking after the dogs and cats.  Rose has completed a City & Guilds course in the UK on nutrition for dogs & cats and she worked in the retail trade in a large pet store again in the UK.
