Star Boarding kennels was established in 1977 by John and Maureen Hyde.
It was a family run business and is now owned and run by Stephanie Smith, although under new ownership the team has stayed the same with Sue, Leila, Elie and Nat our long term employees and we are licenced for 62 dogs and 94 cats and set in approximately one acre of land.
Our team consists of seven permanent employees chosen for their interest and commitment to the animals. Maureen personally looks after the variety of small animals and birds boarded with us throughout the year.
Sue, our Receptionist, has been with the company since 1987 and is on hand to answer any general enquiries. For any specific requirements or worries that you may have about boarding your dog or cat, either Stephanie, Leila or Elie are available to give advice for ensuring that your pet enjoys their stay with us; thereby, allowing you to happily leave your pet with peace of mind.
Before she came here she had her own grooming parlour for 4 years in East Sussex, she is an award-winning groomer with all her city & guilds qualifications and aspiring to do her master’s degree in grooming soon. She also shows her dogs and cats at championship level and has competed at CRUFTS with her dogs, she has a real passion for animals that started at a very young age, Stephanie always looks forward to seeing you all on your visits.
We prefer to see visitors between 2.00 p.m. and 3.30 p.m. when we are able to spend time with new clients discussing their requirements and answering questions. If you are unable to come between these times please ring Sue to arrange an appointment so we can be sure there is someone available to show you around.
Please note visiting is not possible during peak season eg. School holidays.
Collection and Delivery Service (by arrangement).
If your dog or puppy has never been kennelled before please be sure to advise us so that we can discuss with you best ways of introducing him to us.
EARLY BOOKING IS RECOMMENDED TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT.
