Early Returns & Cancellations

We do not give credit for early returns you will be charged for the period booked

Due to problems in the past with no-shows and last-minute cancellations at peak periods (see below) we now require a £50 non refundable deposit for each week booked

All other periods a non-refundable deposit of £25 per pet will be charged.

Health & Vaccinations

Dogs must be fully inoculated against Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parvovirus and Parainfluenza and must have had their booster injection within the previous twelve months.

Kennel Cough

We do ask that all dogs have this vaccination. Although it does not cover all viruses, we at Westlodge have found that the outbreaks have been far and few between since all dogs arriving have been vaccinated.


Your pet is covered by our Pet Insurance whilst in our care up to our policy maximum. This insurance does not cover pre-existing conditions. Our insurance will only cover veterinary treatment for an illness that has occurred at Westlodge or that first shows clinical signs within 48 hours of leaving the kennels.


Here at Westlodge we can administer injections if required, and there is NO CHARGE for administering any kind of medication for your dog. Read more about Medication or Special Needs


Everything your dog requires for his/her stay here is provided. We have bedding, food dishes and toys. You are welcome to bring your own pets bedding or toys. However, as much as we will try our best to keep them in the condition they came in, and not be lost in our large washing system, we cannot guarantee that these will be returned at the end of the pets stay.

Checking In

When you arrive, please visit reception with your dog's vaccination records and items your dog will need. All pets details are logged on our all-encompassing PetAdmin software including any special needs, vets details, medication and dietary requirements, and much more.
