Happy Customers

My dog Ava has been coming here since she was a puppy. She just loves it, she never likes to go home after a day playing with her doggo friends. Staff have always been helpful and accommodating. The 6 week puppy class was also very good and provided many helpful tips and tricks.

The centre and the staff here are fantastic. Highly recommend getting pups in here early so that they get properly socialised. Our Staffordshire Bull Terrier is always pooped the next day and is incredibly calm and sociable thanks in no small part to spending time here!

These guys are a delight! So willing to cater to dogs weird quirks and how they're vibing that day. Highly recommend, pretty sure my dog would abandon this house in a second to live there.

I’ve been super impressed with all the staff here! My pup, Lucy loves it here. If you’re in the area, you really can’t go wrong with Kip! Your four legged friend will thank you

The best of the best. The staff are very friendly to humans, and even more attentive to dogs. My girl loves her visits to Kip and we love that it’s helped her socialise with other dogs.

Couldn't love these guys more! Amazing staff, clear communication and, most important, my dog LOVES going there. Highly recommend.
