What We Offer

If you have not used our facility before, we would love to show you around and tell you about all the interesting things we do to take the best care of your pet. Please phone for an appointment.

Pet Boarding

Our pet enclosures cater for all breeds ages, young and old.

Dog Training

Our chosen method is positive reinforcement through clicker training. This is a tried and tested rewards based training method using no force or punishment. The training enhances the bond between owner and dog in a fun and structured way. Enroll for puppy class, canine life skills & tricks or contact us for a personalised individual training method.

Puppy Daycare

If your puppy is destroying your home and garden whilst you are earning the bucks to repair the damage, daycare is the answer. You will be collecting a contented puppy who will be ready for a good night’s sleep.

Grooming Parlour

We have a well equipped grooming facility with qualified staff and can accommodate all your grooming needs.

Pet Transporting

Name the place. We’ll take your precious cargo there.

Behaviour Consultations

Our vet has a post graduate qualification in animal behaviour and can help with all those nasties like interdog aggression, sound phobias, accepting the new baby, inappropriate soiling, furniture scratching and many more behavioural issues that cause you grey hairs. For more information, go to http://edupet.co.za

We Love Animals

The success of caring for your pet/s depend on the degree to which their needs are fulfilled. These needs may vary and the fulfillment of these needs is to a large extent reliant on the resourcefulness of our care givers. The well-being of your pet/s is directly linked to the quality of our care and how appropriate it is. This implies that our care givers must be equipped with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to identify the needs of your pet/s and be in a position to respond appropriately. And this in a nutshell is what we do at Menlyn Kennels and Cattery.

What To Expect

Shortly after arrival the pets are physically checked, weighed and any abnormalities (skin lesions, excessively long nails, bad teeth, etc.) are recorded. They are also checked for external parasites and treated for these if necessary. These treatments will be reflected on your account. They are then taken to the designated enclosure and made comfortable.
