Boarding Kennel & Cattery Facilities


Tutehill Boarding Kennels & Cattery are able to offer their dog kennel services across Cumbria, including towns such as:

Workington Dog Kennels | Whitehaven Dog Kennels | Cockermouth Dog Kennels | Maryport Dog Kennels | Egremont Dog Kennels | Cumbria Dog Kennels

kennels bed newThe Kennels are set in 20 acres of beautiful Cumbrian Countryside with excellent grounds, where your pets are walked for a minimum of 20 minutes and or 20 minutes in one of our four play parks at least twice per day whilst on holiday with us.

This is in line with the new Government Legislation.

We also offer extra walks and a minimum of four toilet breaks for dogs who's kennel does not have an outside run in line with the new Government Legislation.

We walk all of the dogs individually across approx. 6 acres of lush green land, which we own.

We offer "individual walks only" and do not mix dogs from different Families.

We have different sections available, all secure and gated so the dogs feel safe and enjoy their walks on a one to one with a member of staff.

This is brilliant for any dogs who may be timed, or wary of other dogs. We usually walk all the dogs on the lead , or extending leads, but we do however have facilities to let dogs off the lead once they get to know us. This is really good for lively dogs and young puppies so they can have a good run round and burn off some energy. We will obviously only do this once the dogs get to know us and with Owners written permission.

Our kennels are second to none, all the kennels are heated with infrared heat lamps or central heating and when it gets warm we use fans to keep the dogs cool.

We also have background music on during the day and treats at bedtime.

We now do a full Multi sensory Enrichment program for all the dogs and cats in our care.This is done daily on a rota system. For further details please speak to Management.

We also have a section on the drop downs at the top of the page with more detail

We offer large capacity kennels to suit all sizes of dogs, with outside runs, which are covered or quiet kennels with outside runs for young, old, nervous or quiet dogs.

We have Deluxe rooms and Super deluxe Rooms.

We offer a fantastic place called "The Little Rascals" for all of the puppies that come to stay and now have a New Junior suite that can be used for the bigger puppies.

We have "The Dinkies" for all the tiny Dogs too.

We have secure enclosures, Play Parks, where your dog can be individually let off the lead for a good run or to play with a ball each day too.

This is an excellent facility, especially for any younger dogs that come to stay with us who enables them to let off steam and build up their confidence and bond with the staff.

We take the Dogs for  walks across all of our fields and have an enclosed area which may be suitable for some dogs to be let off the lead and have a fantastic run about.

We have hand sanitizing machines on site which we ask all of our Customers and Staff to use to stop infection and cross contamination.

We have smoke alarms in all of our buildings and have Fire safety in place, together with alarms and horns.

We have lockable first aid kits and Medicine Cabinets. We currently have 2 First Aider's on site with two other Members of Staff booked in for their First Aid in the Work place in January.

Deluxe Rooms


Each individual room has its very own front door which lets you into living room style accommodation. Each room has a window with blinds. We have beautiful murals or pictures on the walls. All of our rooms are heated. We have provided your dog with a cozy comfort of a three seater leather sofa to use by day and by night we open it up into a double sofa bed. We will provide your pet with a duvet and pillow for them to settle down with. Home from home comforts.

The floors are all tiled, which are very easy to clean, just in case of any little accidents. Each room has a CD player and if you like you can even provide your own CD's for us to play throughout your pets stay.

Each room has been fitted with a dimmer switch so if your dog doesn't like being left in the dark we can keep it set at a dimmer glow. We do provide a normal dog bed with blankets and also towels in case we need to dry them off in wet weather.We do have raised beds available too. We will also provide feed and water bowls. We have hooks to hang your dogs leads and coats on. We will start the day from Early am until late. All our Exercise programs are in line with new Government Legislation, however we offer more exercise as often as we possibly can. We also do a Multi Sensory Enrichment program for all of the Dogs on a daily basis.

Playtime is also included and extendable leads can be used. The rooms are situated near the house so fairly easy for us to keep a close eye on them. We have tried to create a warm homely environment so the dogs will be stress free. Our rooms are big enough to accommodate individual dogs or up to 3 dogs from the same family.

Please note; If you book a Deluxe Room you must provide your Dog's own food for the duration of its stay.

Deluxe Rooms are only offered to Dogs over 18 months to 2 years old who are fully house trained and passed the chewing stage.

Super Deluxe Rooms


We now have Super Deluxe rooms available. They are the same set up as our Deluxe Rooms however they have safety flooring instead of tiled floors.

We can also provide an electric blanket for your dog in the Super Deluxe during the coldest months.

The building houses 3 individual rooms with access to a very large individual run for each room.

The beauty of these rooms and what makes them extra special is that they are situated in one of our private fields completely away from all the rest of our kennel buildings.

They are as good as all of our individual Deluxe rooms but they are set in a beautiful, more peaceful setting.

They are ideal for the Customer who wants that little bit more comfort and tranquility for their Pet.

They are brilliant for nervous Pets too.

They are suitable for all types of dogs. Obviously they cost a bit extra, however I am sure your Pet would agree they are worth every penny.

Dinky Dog Suite


We are now offering individual mini rooms for all tiny breeds of dogs.

Due to the fact that the walls are only 4 foot high in the Dinky Suite we usually only use it for dogs that are small breeds. These can be used for one dog or groups of 2 from the same family. 

This is a cozy, comfortable, safe environment which is also heated. We have lino on the floors in case of any little accidents. We provide dog beds with lots of blankets for your pets to snuggle in under their infrared heat lamps.

We have soothing background music from our CD player. Each of our mini rooms have individual heat lamps above their beds which is not only warm but also acts as a night light.

There is no kenneling in here, just mini walls with safety gates.  We even have hooks to hang up their leads and coats. 

We provide our own towels and food and water bowls.



Tutehill Boarding Kennels & Cattery are able to offer their cattery services across Cumbria, including towns such as:

Workington Cattery | Whitehaven Cattery | Cockermouth Cattery | Maryport Cattery | Egremont Cattery

Earlier in 2019 we refurbished our Cattery and we now offer 9 Deluxe Penthouse Suites for our Feline Friends.

Our Deluxe Penthouse Suites are individual rooms for up to four cats from one family to stay in at any one time.

They are inside rooms and have an extremely large raised bed area where your cat can snuggle in and keep warm and cozy with lots of blankets and hooded cat beds.The raised bed area is accessible by a large wide ramp and a selection of raised shelf areas. This is so the cats can get up and down easily and safely. Your cat can enter through one of the two doors or a cat flap. 

All of our walls are pvc cladded from floor to ceiling and our floors are covered in cushion flooring for hygeine and easy cleaning. Our Ceilings hight in each room is 8 foot high.

Each room has its own individual lighting and heating. We have sensored night lights which are situated so the cats can get up and down the ramps and raised shelves safely. These lights will also re assure the cats that they are never left completely in the dark. The cats can chooses if and when to activate the lights through out the night.

Each individual room has a mesh window area with a shelf in front of it so they can sit and look into the rest of the cattery.

We use proprioceptive mats in each room as well as a selection of scratching posts and climbing trees. We use interactive feeding and treat bowls. We also provide toys.

We provide fresh spring water at all times for your cats which comes from our own water supply.

We provide a couple of different types of litter trays for your cats. We usually have one litter tray per cat in each of our rooms. We use wood based  cat litter which we change as many times as we need to depending upon your cats toileting needs.

If you have a preferance to what type of litter tray your cat would prefer please just let a member of our Team know on arrival.


Because of the sheer volume of cat feeds currently available on the market we are unfortunately unable to keep up with demand.

We therefore kindly ask that each Owner now provides all of their cat food and biscuits for their own cats for the duration of their stay with us.

We will no longer be supplying cat meat or biscuits ourselves.

We really hope your Cat/Cats enjoy his/her new Deluxe penthouse suite.

It is exciting, interactive, warm, cozy and safe and very Cat Friendly.

Please remember due to the sheer size of our Deluxe penthouse suites we only have 9 available at any one time now so please book early to avoid disappointment.

We also have access to a vet 24 hours per day and would not hesitate to seek medical advice if we think it’s necessary. Your pet’s welfare is of the utmost importance to us.



We are able to offer many different types of dog/cat food, which keeps most of the dogs and cats happy.

However we cannot stock all the vast range but we can feed personal diets if the food is supplied.

Also timing and number of feeds often varies so if you can let us know on arrival we can carry out your requests.
