About Us

Friendly, Family run boarding kennels.

Tutehill Kennels & Cattery - EntranceTutehill Boarding Kennels & Cattery were established in 1992 as a Licenced Family Run Business by Vince and Kath Fleming. They used to breed and show Smooth and Wire Fox Terriers. Vince used to do a lot of Judging too.

Their daughter Sharon ran the kennels for them.
In March of 2002 Sharon and Her Husband Joe bought the kennels from Vince and Kath and still continue to run it today with continued support from her parents.

Sadly the Family lost Dad, Vince in December 2013.

Mam kath still lives on Site with Sharon and Joe and the rest of the Family.
Sharon and Joe have 6 children. One of their son's Patrick has been trained up and is currently the Manager.

He has been working side by side with Sharon on a daily basis for some time now.
Patrick along with Sharon and Joe is usually hands on in the kennels and Reception.
The family also includes Emily, one of their daughters, who usually helps out at weekends and school holidays and Daniel, another of their 4 sons who helps out with all grass cutting and maintenance with Dad Joe. They both work hard to make sure the place looks good all year round.

Their Eldest son Andrew and daughter Natalie also come home and help out with the business from time to time.

Joshua their youngest son is only 10 years old but helps out Nanna kath by taking her little dog Skip for walks. He is also often seen on the back of the quad bike with Daniel. He also helps out with planting of trees and flowers with Mam Sharon.

The Family has lived on the Farm for nearly 26 years so as you can imagine they all have a great love and passion for Animals.

Because of their life style living on the Farm and being brought up by Mam Sharon  (The biggest  animal lover),they have had lots of pets over the years.

They currently own 10 dogs and 7 cats.

Sharon breeds German Shepherds and has over 25 years experience handling and looking after animals. Sharon even helped out her Dad Vince and Mam kath when they had a riding school.

They had several Foals born here and Sharon used to have her own horse along with Herdwick sheep, Jersey cows, Goats, and Pigs, Chickens and Geese.

The children have all had  Rabbits, Ginuea pigs, hamsters and Rats too.

We do also have a Fantastic Team of Staff at all times with more temporary staff during the summer months.
All our Staff are trained to the highest of Standards as Sharon believes in only employing Staff who care and and have the utmost respect for each and every Pet.
