About Us


Brian and Audrey Thorpe and their daughter Lisa moved to Slaney Lodge Farm in 1995 and opened the Kennels and Cattery three years later. Over the years they have built a strong reputation for providing the very best individualised care for animals at reasonable prices.

After completeing an HND in animal science at Brackenhurst College Lisa took over the running of the kennels and cattery. Slaney Kennels & Cattery  now employ one full time and four part time members of staff who are now familiar faces to regular customers.

There is a grooming/ clipping/ bathing service provided on site for boarders and other dogs. See Mucky Pups dog grooming Facebook page

The whole team at Slaney Lodge pride themselves on offering the very best care to dogs and cats in clean and comfortable surroundings.

We invite you to come and see for yourselves, and maybe book your dog in for a free days trial so that they can get to know us before they come for a longer stay.

The opening times for Slaney Lodge are as follows and change based on when we put the clocks forward/back for daylight saving:-
Winter: 7-11am and 14:00-17:30
Summer: 7-19:00
