Being new to the area last year, we wanted a really good kennel for our Labrador Toby and found Netley on thebestof. The testimonials were so good we decided to give them a try - and so glad we did! A fantastic facility, with everyone there clearly real dog lovers who do everything to make the 'guests' feel at home. The kennels themselves are spotless and the walking facilities great (always one to one walks not groups). Toby has now stayed at Netley 4 or five times, usually just a couple of days but also for 12 days, and is completely happy to go there - in fact he is off out of the car like a 'long dog' without a backwards glance! Toby has a recurring health problem and Barb and Den are always happy to administer his tablets ( which in fairness he takes without any fuss) if required. I would really recommend Netley highly - it is a great comfort to know that when we go away and can't take Toby with us he can be left in such safe and caring hands.
We have been using Netley for our dog Freckles on numerous occasions over the last couple of years. She really enjoys it and we never have a problem with leaving her there. In fact, she likes it so much that she starts to get very excited when we turn off the main road in Dorrington! :) All the staff seem lovely and Freckles is always happy to see them. Seems like a nice clean facility, Freckles has never been stinky when we collect her, unlike at our previous place! Thanks, guys for the wonderful service. We happily recommend you to everyone!
We are so happy!!! We left our Staffordshire bull terrier and Bengal cat in the kennels and cattery for 1 week 23/07/2011 until 31/07/2011. Netley, you were so professional and provided an excellent service - my pets have come out so happy and in good health I would not hesitate in recommending you to my friends, neighbours & family. Thank you for looking after them so well & providing a great service. Best wishes & kind regards

SUPER KENNELS, VERY CLEAN AND GOOD FACILITIES WITH FRIENDLY STAFF AND SET IN A ATTRACTIVE ENVIRONMENT. MY DOG BEN ALWAYS APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN HAPPY THERE WHEN I COLLECT HIM. THANK YOU!
Our ten year old Jack Russell enjoyed his stay at Netley Boarding Kennels so much he can't wait for us to go on holiday again.
Everything was spick and span and well run. Many thanks, Dennis and Barbara.

We have used Netley Kennels a number of times and have found them to be kind, caring and professional. The Kennels has excellent facilities and the rural location makes it perfect for active dogs. Our dog Summer is fortunate to have such a good second home. Thanks, Barb and Den.
WAS RECOMMENDED NETLEY BY A FRIEND SO I WENT TO HAVE A LOOK FOR MYSELF AND WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH WHAT I SAW; SPACIOUS CLEAN UNITS FOR THE CATS WITH PLENTY OF TOYS AND HEATED BASKETS IF IT IS COLD. I BOOKED MY CAT IN FOR 5 DAYS OVER THE HALF TERM HOLS. THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME MY CAT HAD BEEN TO A CATTERY AND I WAS SO PLEASED THAT HE IS BOOKED IN FOR 2 WEEKS IN THE SUMMER. I WOULD BE HAPPY TO RECOMMEND NETLEY TO ANYONE. THANKS, DEN & BARB.
We left our springer spaniel with Den and Barb for 1 week and we have nothing but good things to say, from the kennels to the staff. Our dog is quite nervous but on collection there was no sign of this and I put that down to the care he had received while we had been away.
We left our two dogs at netley kennels for 4 weeks in Feb this year. We were nervous about leaving them as Polly our Sheltie is a rescue dog and takes a lot of patience and also Rufus our Chihuahua was only 4 months old at the time and was a bit of a handful.
We had looked at lots of kennels and had almost given up on finding somewhere for them when we were recommended netley. Instantly on arrival we felt reassured, the place was highly professional and you could tell all the dogs were given a lot of attention.
When we collected our dogs they were clean, happy, well looked after and exhausted!!!
We have already booked them in for a weekend and will definitely use them again in future!
We put our very nervous springer spaniel into Netley for the first time at Christmas and we were so pleased we booked him again for feb half term and a fortnight in the summer holidays. He's been really well cared for; Den and Barb really get to know the dog and its needs, Den spends time sitting in the run getting to know the dog before taking him for a walk.... The kennels are immaculate, you have the option of having a heater over the dog for 24 hours. I can thoroughly recommend Netley Kennels.
From taking my dogs to the kennels on a number of occasions, I have been extremely satisfied with the amount of care and attention my dogs have recieved. Which gives me piece of mind when I am away. I would highly recommend Netley to anyone who wants to treat their dogs to a fantastic Doggy holiday. Well Done Den, Barb and all the staff.
I have been taking Buster to Netley Farm for some time now and have always found Den & Barb to be lovely people who love animals. Buster is epileptic and requires medication at set times which includes the evening and it is never too much trouble for them when he stays. I wouldn't go away before and leave Buster due to his condition but since finding Den & Barb I can go away with peace of mind every time even at short notice. I would & have recommended them to everyone I know. Thanks again for taking such good care of him xxx
It was brilliant; we took 3 cats to Netley to look after for 5 days and what hit me the most was how happy the cats were when we saw them after - they got on so well with the staff too! All three cats had just turned 1 year old and as we do not let them outside this was perfect for them. It was also their first time leaving them at kennels so we were a bit worried of their reaction to this, but it was proved that they enjoyed the experience. As one of the cats has an enlarged heart and has to take tablets daily we were a bit worried about him actually taking them but the kind people said it was no problem at all, which also showed. The cattery was clean and spacious enough for all three cats to go in together! I would definitely bring them to Netley Kennels again and would recommend it to anyone. Thanks again
This is by far the best boarding kennels I have used. The first things that strike you when you walk in are the lovely spacious environment and the fact that it is absolutely immaculate. The owners are delightful and genuinely adore dogs.
My dogs are brothers and enormous, bouncy greyhound X german shepherds who are far from easy dogs. They were provided with a lovely large kennel to share and were very relaxed and happy when we picked them up. In fact they were happier to see the owner of the kennels than me!!!! Usually my dogs lose weight in kennels, not this time, they were in suberb condition with no typical kennel smell. This was quickly explained by the individual attention given to them, they were given three good walks a day and lots of free running play time in a secure grassy paddock. The dogs are not just kicked out to get on with it, they have their own person who goes in and plays with them, seeming never to get tired of throwing a ball! 100% recommended.
We have been using Netley Boarding Kennels for over a year now. Our dog, Bobby, is challenging at the best of times but Den and Barb always take the time to settle him in and reassure me that he has behaved. Kennels are clean and all staff are friendly and helpful. I would recommend it to anyone.
We have now been using Barb and Den for over a year and our two dogs Jep & Max have exceptional care as do we!!!!! They come home shattered after being walked daily (not just once a day either!!!) well cared for and loved!!!! You are always greeted with a friendly smile and a very warm welcome by all!!! Simply the best in Shropshire and I would go as far as to say the country!!!!!! Keep up the good work!!!!! xxxxxxx
We recently took our cat to be looked after for 2 weeks. I was really really nervous, it was the first time Millie went to a cattery. When we collected her, she looked so happy. Barb and Den had been spending time playing with her. Her room was spacious, clean and comfortable. She loved the heated bed! I now have no worries about taking Millie to Netley Boarding kennels and cattery in the future. I can enjoy my holidays without worrying if she will be ok!Thank you Barb and Den
Our 2 Border Collies are 10 years old & this was their first stay in kennels, so we were a bit concerned about leaving them but the dogs seemed to love it. When we went to pick them up they thought they were going out for a walk with Den not coming home!
This is a friendly, family run business & we will definately be using them again.
Thanks from Bonnie & Clyde.
Friendly, nice accommodation, good service and family-run. Couldnʼt ask for much more really. We were putting our dogs into kennels for the 1st time and were pretty nervous. But we neednʼt have worried. You can tell that the Oakleys love animals and that is probably the most important thing.

With both of us being resuce dogs we were both nervous about leaving home for the first time, but were made to feel welcome and secure with Barb and Den,and would like to thank them for making our visit enjoyable and comfortable
and would recommend Netley Kennels to any other dogs, and owners.
We both look forward to seeing you both again in May
Our dog Scooby stayed at Netley last year and i am going to ring Den to book him in for this year, Scooby loved being there and i have had no hesitation in recommending Netley to our friends.
Speak to you soon Den.
Den and Barb would like to thank all their customers who voted for them in last months Small Business award, which they are very proud to have won. They would also like to thank you all for the lovely reviews that they have recieved over their first year of business and wish you a happy new year.
