Luxury Farm Stay Accommodation for Dogs in Stanley and Derwentside Area

Where are we?

Wagtails Farm Stay Kennels is situated on New Acres Farm in the countryside around Stanley, Co. Durham. It is a working farm that has cattle and sheep and arable crops.

A converted dairy is now home to ten heated, indoor apartments for dogs to stay for boarding and day care.

Who are we?

David and Jayne both work on the farm and Jayne manages the kennels. We have many years of experience of all types of animals and their care. When not working with animals for our living we take part in hobbies involving our own horses and dogs. We train our own working sheep dogs and gun dogs and Jayne has a love of all things equine. Jayne has also gained a level 3 Diploma in Canine Care and Welfare.

What to Expect

A small, friendly kennels where your dog will be cared for as an individual. They will have regular walks and enrichment opportunities throughout the day.  We like to be outdoors with them in our safe garden area and on lead around the farm fields. They will have the chance to socialise and play with others if desired and see the sights and sounds of farm life. For those that prefer indoors we have an indoor playroom with a sofa and music to sit and have a chill out.
