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 bedThe Kennels are set in 20 acres of beautiful Cumbrian Countryside with excellent grounds, where your pets are walked a minimum of 3-5 times per day whilst on holiday with us.
We walk all of the dogs individually accross 6-7 acres of lush green land.
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.

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 are currently trying out "through a Dog's Ear" Music in some of our kennel buildings.
This is music to calm your canine compainon.

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 accross all of our fields and have an enclosed are which may be suitable for some dogs to be let off the lead and have a fantastic run about.

We have hand sanitising machines on the entrances to the Reception and all our kennel blocks and feed room. We also use Disinfectant mats so as to stop any cross contamination. All customers entering our kennels are asked to use them both on arriving and departing.


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 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 incase 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 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 and your dog will receive 5 individual walks throughout the day in one of our lush fields away from the other dogs.

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 4 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 2 years old who are fully house trained and passed the chewing stage.



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.
These cost slightly more than our Deluxe Rooms.

The building houses 3 individual rooms with access to a very large individual run for each room. ( the biggest runs we have ever made).

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 3 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.
The morning starts from very early am until bedtime where they can have 3-5 walks throughout the day in one of our lovely lush fields away from the other dogs.
