We cannot accept any dog who has not been vaccinated within the last 12 months.We will ask for a contact telephone number from you.We will ask for the name and telephone number of your veterinary surgery.

"As lifelong animal lovers, it was a natural progression for us to move our family and our ever increasing menagerie into Hemjoy. We set about improvements straight away, and are proud of the reputation we have built up over the years with like-minded owners, who entrust the care of their much loved pets to the Hemjoy staff."
Regular visitors will be familiar with kennel manager Sandra and her team of animal lovers, whose priority is to ensure that their guests have a very happy, comfortable and contented stay at Hemjoy.
A warm welcome awaits you and your dog!
“Airedale Tom stayed here last year aged 1 year old. Went back this September - and couldn't wait! Fantastic staff who obviously love every dog they have. Good, clean individual kennels with run attached and large, enclosed paddock where dogs are let off lead to run to heart's content. Not sure he wanted to come home, so spoilt. Even changed his food, as bit of a fuss pot and they didn't want him to lose weight! Highly recommend.”
