This isn't a recommendation, as I have never used a boarding kennel, but it might be worth calling and going for a look.

I know about it, as I often walk my dogs in the woods behind the kennels.

Thanks Moobli, I will give them a call! Its a lot closer than the D&C home! I hate to have to put her in kennels but all my friends are in the middle of exams (like me!) so would feel bad asking them to take her on. Stoopid cats!

Hi!

We went to see cricklecreek before and the kennels were ok but the dogs don't get out for walks much, they said about 15 mins on lead per day. Hamish stayed in Myreside Kennels just before Dunbar, couldn't recommend them highly enough. They have their own paddock and fenced in woodland bit. Plenty of time out running and playing and the kennels are really nice. If you put Myreside Dunbar into google it should come up.

The cat and dog home boarding kennels made me cry when we went to see them as all the dogslooked upset and distressed.

Dee xx

If I was still at home in Scotland, she could've come to stay with us, I live just outside Lauder, but I'm down south now in Swindon!

Will try and get in touch with the doggy people I know near me, and see if they can recommend anything!

Thanks for the tip Dee! I have left a message with Myreside so hopefully they'll get back to me! I looked at the reviews and everyone seems to like them. Cross your fingers for me that they can help!

And let me know if you hear anything Sarah, I'm going to keep looking in-case Myreside can't help.

She can stay at my parents but my dad is just a bit panicky that the older cat might not cope with her arrival. Which I totally understand!

How about this if you don't fancy kennels, I know a few people who use Barking Mad. They might well have hosts in your area:

Don't blame you not wanting to put your dog in to kennels.

Thanks Westie_N, that looks like an option! Its just for a few days but I feel awful leaving her . We move down on the 15th so its just between the 6th and then really. If the cats were a bit younger then it wouldn't have been such an issue but Scampi is 12 and really showing her age atm so we don't want to put her through too much stress!

The Dunbar one sounds really good.

I understand that. My dogs have only recently started going on holiday with their gran and granpa because the relatives they go to had a cat. Both my dogs are fine with cats, no problems, but the cat was really old and on it's road out so it wasn't fair to stress her out.

I like the idea of Barking Mad. It certainly seems like a home from home and hopefully wouldn't cause as much stress to a dog as a kennel might if the dog isn't used to a kennel environment. And if it's only for a few days and a one off it shouldn't be too expensive.

Good luck with whatever you decide.
