I have just collected my dogs from their first stay at Bocage Kennels with Jacky. It was their 2nd ever time in a kennels and we were anxious about leaving them as one of our spaniels is a particularly sensitive rescue dog. Jacky was wonderful with them immediately and I could see them respond very positively. The place is clean and well laid out. There is plenty of secure outside space for them to have a good run in plus an activity area for more play! Jacky kept me updated almost from the beginning of their stay which I appreciated so much. I trust Bocage Kennels completely to always be a safe haven for my precious dogs when I have to go away and also a place where they can actually develop and hone their confidence and social skills. Very lucky to have found them.

Reggie stayed with Jacky for the first time last month. He has terrible separation anxiety normally when we leave him, so as usual we were anxious about his stay.

We have tried other kennels and have returned to find him in a terrible state, which has stopped us going away unless really necessary and then we have taken him with us.

We met Jacky beforehand and when we dropped Reg off he seemed relatively calm.

Jacky sent regular updates, messages, pictures and videos, which showed he was having the best time he could without us and clearly was happy with Jacky. Jacky also did some socialising with Reg and the other dogs, which we believe also really helped him.

When we returned he was very happy to see us, but was in no way traumatised by his stay.

I cannot praise the love and care he received enough and I am so happy that I have found a lovely place for him to stay.

Thank you to Jacky and John for the care you give to all your boarders and rescue animals. Perhaps now we can have a few more trips away!

You are both extremly confidant and competent in dealing with all aspects of animal welfare and again, thank you and see you soon!

I leave Bertie with Jacky and never worry! He comes back looking better than he went in! Jackie goes beyond the call of duty for us! Shes an absolute star! Best kennels around and my round trip is 3 hours! So you can tell how good it is. Donna Holland

Having tried so many kennels in Normandy with disappointment and anger, it is such a relief to go away with a peaceful mind, knowing that the animals will be warm, clean, well fed and exercised and so well looked after. A true home from home experience. Sophia used to be traumatized, now she loves her holidays. Instead of receiving a miserable smelly dog, she is as clean as she left home, no need for a long shower to return her to normal, tail wagging happy to welcome us. She loves Jackie and obviously the cuddles she gets. Thank you for the photos you send which are very much appreciated and for the 5 star accommodation! I strongly recommend if you love your dog.

Luna and Zippy have stayed with Jacky at Bocage Kennels twice now. They settled in well and the kennels are open and very clean which helped our dogs settle in. Not only did Jacky care for our dogs, she also helped us enjoy our breaks by sending regular updates, photos and videos. It was really reassuring to see them running playing and digging (sorry Jacky!!). On Christmas Day Jacky even gave them both a Christmas stocking each! We have no hesitation in recommending Bocage Kennels and will be using Jacky's services again. Thank you!

Thank you so much for taking care of Ulysse and Willow at short notice. I was so worried about Ulysse. 14 yrs old, deaf and a rescue that i rehomed from the SPA in January, I was adamant he would never go to a kennel again. But Jacky you were amazing, completely understood him and i came back to two very happy dogs who had clearly had a lovely holiday. Thank you for all the pics and video clips that put my mine at ease and let me relax and enjoy my sisters wedding. Just so appreciated and i won't hesitate to bring them back to you again if ever i need to :-) xx
