Unlike traditional boarding kennels, we pride ourselves in delivering the service that we market. Honesty and integrity are two of our key pillars, and our small team will always ensure that we exceed Owner expectations with the service that we provide to all our Guests.

Furthermore, our costs are all inclusive (inc. special diets, medication administration, senior guests, six hours of outside playtime, with two of the hours being spent with a SPPH Employee for stimulation, enrichment, and playtime), so there will be no hidden charges upon departure.

For both Cat and Dog guests, there are several levels of accommodation to choose from, which have been specially designed to harness the modern, rustic-rural charm of the SPPH property. Ranging from our more luxurious Pucci Suites that replicate a human bedroom for a true home-away-from-home experience for our Dog guests.

Or for our Cat guests we have the Presidential Suite that is a luxury, walk-in sized Suite with a private window looking onto our tranquil valley vista, offering plenty of sunlight and wildlife-gazing.

Please refer to Dog Holidays and Cat Holidays for detailed information on the accommodation that we have on offer.
