"I have been an animal lover all my life and after being in primary education for the last 15 years decided that now was the time for a dream to come true. I have been a volunteer puppy walker and boarder for the Guide Dogs Association for many years and have 3 dogs of my own.

I first came to know Copperbeech Kennels when I boarded Max, Deva and (more recently) Leroy here a few years ago and last year got the chance to buy the kennels and property with my long time friend and business partner Mark. Together we decided that we could take the already established business forward.

The care and attention of our dogs was of the utmost importance when we looked at kennels and this is what we want to offer all of our future customers and guests.

Please be assured that we will treat your dogs as we treat our own (plenty of walks, cuddles & conversations!)."
