Welcome to Paulways Kennels

Paulways Kennels

Paulways has been a well established kennels and cattery since 1988, set in five acres of Kent countryside, only seven miles from Ashford, giving easy access to Folkestone/Eurotunnel and central London. We not only cater for your families pet dogs and cats, we can also accommodate your smaller pets too.

We openly encourage a visit to the kennels and cattery so that prospective customers may see first hand the comprehensive range of facilities that we have available. Visits are most welcome, however must be booked in advance to ensure that our staff are available to spend sufficient time with you and discuss your pets requirements. For dogs that have not been to kennels before we would suggest a trial period to assess the dogs suitability for kennelling.

We also have the facility for customers in London and surrounding areas for your pets to be dropped off at our sister petshop, Paulways Pet Centre, Thornton Heath, Croydon, from where they are then transported to the kennels by our staff. For pet owners who do not drive, please contact the kennels by telephone or email.


The Kennels

Dogs Exercising

The kennels are set in five acres of land and we have three large and well fenced paddocks for the dogs to exercise in daily. We have smaller runs for nervous dogs, so that they can get to know us before being allowed off the leads to run in the larger fields.

All kennels are fully tiled for ease of cleaning. They are heated in the winter and cool in the summer.

All dogs are fed on the diets in which you feed them at home and any medication or routines will be adhered to. We require you to bring your own food if it is a special one, for example from the vets.

Bedding is provided but you may wish to bring your own food, toys and bedding.

The Cattery

The CatteryThe cattery is set away from the kennels so that the cats are not distressed. The catteries are individual rooms, some for one cat and others for two or more cats. All catteries are fully tiled and are centrally heated.

All cats will be fed on the diet in which you feed them at home unless it is a prescribed diet. We can cater for all your cats needs and special veterinary treatments can be carried out as long as all details are given to us. All cats must be fully vaccinated. As with our kennels we provide bedding, you may wish to bring your own.

You can also bring your cat to our shop in Thornton Heath or bring him or her to the kennels in Charing. If your cat is coming to the shop please make sure it is in a secure carrier as it will have to journey. If you have not got a carrier, we can provide you with one at our shop.

Small Animals

Small Animal Hutches

Rabbits and Guinea Pigs have their own barn with large hutches. We also have a small paddock with exercise runs in it so that all animals can go out during the day, weather permitting. We will also cater for any type of feeding you give your pet as long as we know before your pet comes in.
