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. Please note we don not stock food. It is important that pets remain on the food that they eat at home. Due to the difficulty of sourcing all the brands and flavours. We require our clients to provide their own food. We will that it is fed according to the client’s instructions. 

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

personalized

individual training method.

Doggie Daycare

This service is like sending your child to the Crèche, drop off is @ 08:00 & collection is 17:45 on weekdays.If your puppy or adult dog 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 or adult dog who will be ready for a good night’s sleep.

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.

WINTER COMFORT

It has always been our policy to ensure that our guests are warm during the winter months.

Based on our own research where we compared temperatures using different types of heating we have started upgrading and added rooms which are totally indoors. These buildings are built with bricks and mortar, have insulation in the roof as well as fitted ceilings. This provides a relatively constant temperature in the sleeping area with the added benefit of being able to regulate the temperature more effectively by means of panel heaters fitted in strategic places inside these buildings. Some of the rooms are already fitted with rubberised flooring to enhance the insulation.

It is an expensive undertaking to house our guests in the same comfort as what they enjoy at home but we feel that it is an important aspect of their wellbeing whilst in our care. As the budget allows we are converting more rooms in this manner and moving away from the infrared heating lamps which does not allow for effective temperature regulation like an indoor, well-insulated sleeping area. The ambient temperature during the winter months can fluctuate rather dramatically and to have a heating source which supplies the same constant heat without being able to regulate it is not ideal.

 

It is hardly ever necessary to provide additional heating during the day but we have the means and capacity to do so during cold snaps.

For some interesting statistics, please visit this link for more information on ideal and safe temperatures for your pets.

Thunder and fireworks phobias in dogs

Posted by | March 2

Many pets are scared (even extremely fearful) of loud noises, especially fireworks and thunderstorms. Fear is normal – very often it can be life-saving. However, when an animal reacts excessively to a fear-inducing stimulus, it is termed a phobia. Phobias are very intense, abnormal fears. Fears develop gradually, while phobias develop suddenly and animals do […]
