The premises sits on the old Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway line, which was closed in 1959. The premises has one of the old station houses, which is now the main owners house. The line ran directly along the side of the kennels where the platform was situated. Apart from the house the original posts for the lighting are still in place and run along the side. The kennels is also situated on Peddars way. The link below will tell you more about that. In 1983 Mr & Mrs Flatt put in plans to build the kennels (The Paradise Dogotel). Over the next few years substantial work was undertaken to create the premises, which they continued to do so and run until 1998 when they decided to sell and concentrate on their grooming business (Dezynadog), which eventually merged in with Christies Direct. In 1998 Mr & Mrs Gunner took over the reigns of (The Dogotel) and improved the premises further. The kennels was also partly used for the RSPCA where they eventually relocated to Tilney All Saints leaving the kennels 100% for boarding customers.

In 2008 Mr & Mrs Nicholls took over and are still here putting there mark on the place. In the 10 years we have been here we have put the website in place, which the kennels never had, which was the first job undertaken in 2007 prior to taking over. Grooming was introduced in stand alone building at entrance of premises. Cattery (Catotel) was built away from the main kennels located next to the owners house. A separate relaxing reception was built to the front of the kennels allowing us to make the kitchen larger rather than having the 2 merged. Our latest addition is the Hydrotherapy centre, which has the state of the art equipment. We have planning permission for another block of 12 kennels, which we intend to build in the next 5 years but we are taking a break from all the improvements to enjoy all the wonderful changes that have taken this boarding kennels to the next level.

Dogotel is run to a very high standard. We are enthusiastic, passionate about our business and love meeting all your pets that come and stay with us. We have highly motivated staff and you will see from the first moment you come through our doors how caring we are all.

After clicking the kennels, cattery links we hope that we have given you some info to help your decision of boarding. If you find that we have missed something that you need to know about us please by all means give us a call or you can email on the email address above
