Nipstone Boarding Kennels is a family run business set in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The kennels have a large, securely fenced grass exercise area and are surrounded by 14 acres of pasture land where we breed and keep alpacas and llamas.

We walk your dog twice a day as well as regular trips to our exercise area
Your dog can bring his or her own bedding, comforter and toys
We will feed our own food or you can provide a specific diet
We use DAP (Dog Appeasing Pheromones) diffusers in the kennels to help promote a calm and stress free environment
We offer a free one night familiarisation sleepover for dogs that are new to us and are booked in for one week or more

Where are we?

We are located near Minsterley in Shropshire and our catchment area is roughly Shrewsbury, Telford, Welshpool, Bishops Castle, Craven Arms, Ludlow, Church Stretton and Oswestry although we have had dogs board with us from further afield.

Thank you

Well 2014 is rapidly drawing to a close.  We can’t believe how quickly the year has flown.  At least we have seen some decent weather this past summer and the dogs have been able to enjoy their walks in the sunshine.

We have thoroughly enjoyed the company of so many of our regular canine visitors and have been delighted to welcome lots of new guests.  Sadly we have had to say a final farewell to a few of our old and dear doggy friends including one of our own dogs, Monty.  Monty, our English Bull Terrier, was part of our lives for over 14 years and was the inspiration behind our logo.  We hope we will all meet again someday at the Rainbow Bridge.

Christmas will soon be here so if you are thinking of booking your dogs into kennels please do not leave it too late as we are filling up fast.

Thank you for entrusting us with the care of your lovely dogs this year and we hope we will see you all again in 2015 and plenty of new furry faces too.

We wish you a Happy Christmas and healthy New Year.
Jayne, Neil and all the Nipstone Kennels Team
