“We would highly recommend London and Essex Kents Farm Kennels and Catteries to anyone looking to board their pets! I do not believe anywhere else could offer the same level of service. It was exceptional, friendly, personal and professional. You have truly gone the extra mile to help us with Delta, even before she was on UK soil. Thank you!!

Edelle & Richard Brookes

“To: Kris and all the Staff
I would just like to thank you all for looking after Buddy and helping me through this difficult time. I have been told that Buddy loves his new home and has made a new friend in another King Charles Spaniel called Jasper. Once again a massive thank you to each and every one of you. You are stars and if it hadn’t been for you all it could have been a very different outcome. Thank you and best regards.
