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.

Holiday Plans

It’s the time of year when thoughts turn to making plans for holidays. If you are thinking of going on holiday and leaving your dog in our care then please book sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.

Leaving your dog in kennels for the first time is understandably an anxious time for every owner. We pride ourselves on our excellent care and try our utmost to make each dog feel at home and are very careful to ensure that all their needs are met. That combined with regular walks and lots of fuss seems to do the trick.

If you have had difficulty finding the right kennels for your dog then please give us a ring. We offer a free “sleepover” familiarisation stay for dogs booked for a week or more and are also happy to work with you to make sure that your dog will settle in.
