Our kennels are state-of-the-art, heated and accompanied by soothing classical tunes.
We are putting the final touches to the training of our new trainer and should be up and running shortly.
If your puppy is destroying your home and garden whilst you 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 nights’ sleep.

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

Some pics from around our facilities
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.
In keeping with our aim to reduce stress as much as possible, we encourage the use of safe toys and appropriate interaction with humans to keep our boarders stimulated and to prevent boredom. We also constantly upgrade the design of housing units to ensure that the environment is interesting for the pets.
Dogs are exercised regularly according to their needs and this includes time spent in the play areas, games played with them, walks outside, supervised socialisation and training where requested. Dogs from different households do not share enclosures but do share play areas if they are socialised and if the client permits it.
Cats are housed in spacious chalets with free access to a grassed area, providing ample opportunity for physical activity.
Pets from different households do NOT share accommodation, due to the risk of injury as a result of aggressive behaviour. The only exception to this rule is the supervised playing of puppies. Young dogs need to socialise with other dogs, and become bored very easily. Supervised socialisation prevents frustration and boredom.
We keep stock of all the good quality brands of pet food. Pets that are not fed a specific diet at home are fed Royal Canin which we have chosen as our standard diet. If your pet is on a special or prescription diet, you can rest assured that it will be fed only that. We ask that you let us know a few days ahead, so that we can order if necessary.
We operate on a prior booking system in order to ensure that we have suitable accommodation available for your pet and to prepare for your pet’s arrival (e.g. preparation of enclosure, stocking your pet’s particular diet, scheduling your pet for regular check-ups and exercising, etc.).
Holiday, long weekend and weekend bookings are payable in advance. You will however not be charged for the days’ boarding should you collect your pets before 11h00. You are strongly advised to make reservations well in advance to avoid disappointment.
If a suitable replacement booking cannot be made for holiday and long weekend bookings a pro rata refund may be considered at the discretion of management. An administration fee is payable for cancelled holiday and long weekend bookings.
From time to time we find ourselves in a situation where pets are “dumped” in cases of divorce, relocations abroad or moving to smaller accommodation, etc. Please note that we reserve the right to remove your pet from our care if no payment arrangement is in place.
Please let us know in advance of any special requirements with regards to diet, medication, exercise or anything else which will enable us to provide the best care possible.
F irst time boarders will be weighed on arrival to establish boarding rates and the invoice will be adjusted accordingly.
M inimum stay in July and December = 10 days; and other holidays = 5 days.
R ates are subject to change without notice. (All prices are VAT inclusive)
