..ABOUT THE KENNELS


 


Champion Kennels and Cattery has, for 14 years, been a top quality boarding kennel, originally located in Pomona, Kempton Park. Due to industrial development in the area we decided early in 2008 to sell the property and relocate to a warmer, more rural setting. The new Champion Kennels and Cattery was built from scratch, incorporating facilities we wanted improved upon our previous design. This is truly a luxury pet hotel. We have built only 24 kennels and 16 catteries, so all pets housed here receive plenty of our personal attention.

Kennels have large runs which open directly onto lawn so there are no passages for dogs to pass through and no feeling of being locked in impersonal kennels. All kennels have stable doors which can either be closed, half opened or left open as the weather permits. All kennels have heating for the winter and water spray cooling for the summer. In addition all kennels are built with high roofs made of asbestos substitute-type insulation material and all runs are covered with shade cloth. Music plays in the kennels 24 hours a day. We supply a wooden board, basket for small dogs and blankets. Any other bedding may be supplied by the owner. All recognized brands of dog food are kept, dry and wet. We also cook up chicken, rice and vegetables every day. For special diets owners must supply their own food.

..CATTERY
 


The cattery is self contained within a building with 8 catteries on each side giving the occupants both inside and outside areas to use. Inside the catteries are furnished tastefully for the comfort of each occupant. The building has an insulated ceiling keeping it cool in summer and warm in winter. Additionally the whole building is heated in the winter. Soft classical music plays inside the cattery continusly day and night. All recognized brands of cat food, both dry and wet are kept in stock. For cats on special diets owners must supply their own food.

..GROOMING PARLOUR
 

We operate a fully equipped grooming parlour at the kennels with qualified staff available Monday to Friday by appointment to pamper your dog. We do not collect and deliver, but offer a fast turnaround service. Phone us for an appointment.

..OTHER PETS
 


We will accept parrots, budgies and other cage birds, hamsters, etc provided they are contained in a suitable cage. We have built a section in our cattery to house these. Own food must be provided as we cannot keep every type of food in stock.

..CONDITIONS FOR ACCEPTANCE
 


Hours of Business
Monday to Friday between 7am and 5pm - BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
We are not open to the public on Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays.

Inoculations
All dogs must have had the 5 in 1, Rabies and Kennel Cough inoculations.
All cats must have had the 4 in 1, Rabies and BB Intra Nasal inoculations.
All inoculations are only valid for 12 months and must be done timeously by the owner, at least 2 weeks before admission - NOT THE DAY BEFORE

Bookings
Preferably to be made by email to: Champion Kennels or by leaving a message on our answering service, if we are busy with the pets. Please do not try to make bookings on the mobile phone as we will invariably be out on the property somewhere or working with the animals and will not be in a position to write down details. However, if the landlines are not working we will make sure we have pen and pad with us. We will no longer have a full-time receptionist. Since we are a very small kennel, bookings must be made timeously and will be taken on a first come, first serve basis. For long weekends, school holidays and the Christmas period, we suggest you book well in advance. Deposits for these periods will be applicable and are non-refundable. We levy a surcharge from 15 December until 10 January each year during which time a minimum of 10 days boarding stayed or paid for is charged.

NOTE WE WILL NOT ACCEPT PIT BULLS, AMERICAN STAFFORDS, BULL TERRIERS, REPTILES OR MARMOSETS FOR BOARDING. AGGRESSIVE OR UNMANAGEABLE PETS WILL NOT BE RE-ACCEPTED IN THE FUTURE. VERY OLD, FRAIL AND SICKLY PETS WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTED IF WE FEEL WE CAN HANDLE THE PROBLEM ADEQUATELY
