Default Kennel Recommendation?

Hi I was just wondering if anyone can recommend a kennels anywhere near Sevenoaks in Kent.

I need to find somewhere for my 2 labs for a fortnight and unfortunately my usual dog/house sitter is no longer able to help out. I've not had to use kennels for some time now so I'm a bit out of touch as to which have a good reputation etc.

Thanks.

Hi,

I live in Kent and board my two with Tracy and Tim at Benedict Farm boarding kennels in East Sussex. Other forum members here use them too. It's a good hour's drive from us but wouldn't kennel them anywhere else.

I totally trust them and the dogs are just as happy to see them as they are us when we collect them.

Thankyou for your reply.

On searching the forum I had already come accross a huge number of recommendations for Benedict Farm so will be giving them a ring as it sounds just the sort of place I'm looking for.

Another vote here for Tracy. My girls wouldn't go anywhere else. You should be able to get there in about 45 mins depending on time of day.

We always used to board at Bowens Farm at Penshurst. It's been a while but it looks like it's the same family who are still running it. The daughter of the family used to work with my mother.

My girls used to love it and dragged me out of the car when they arrived.

Thanks for the replies.

The boys have been booked in to Benedict Farm and I feel confident I've made a good choice for them and that they'll enjoy their 'holiday' whilst I'm enjoying mine.

Going to sort out taking them there to meet Tracy sometime in the next couple of weeks so we can have a look around.
