The Kennels – Call 0161 9733207

Moss Cottage Boarding Kennels in Manchester provide heated kennels of various sizes according to the breed of your dog. All the kennels are heated and this is turned on at 6.30pm in the evening and stays on right throughout the night until the next morning. Each kennel has its own covered outdoor run. We also have larger ‘double’ kennels for families sharing. All the outdoor runs are secure and covered to protect your pet.

Our Kennel Accommodation

We provide the latest thermoplastic sleeping areas which basically keep your pet warm or cool as required. We also provide cozy thermal bedding and Pet fleece bedding which is washed when needed during your pets stay.  Please do not bring your own bedding as we have more than enough here.  The best thing you can bring your dog is a worn t-shirt or jumper smelling of yourself, as your dog will find this very settling. We use sawdust shavings in our kennels as we find this keeps your pet cleaner, fresher and drier in case of accidents. However, we can also use training pads instead of the shavings if you wish.

Reception and Feeding

We feed a variety of different foods for all life stages including dry, tinned and fresh meat. We also provide treats every afternoon. Please inform us what food your dog is used to eating so that we can avoid stomach upset. We like to stick to the same feeding routine for the dogs so please let the staff know what times you normally feed your pet and how often. You can provide your own food and we would ask that ‘specialist diets’ are definitely provided but unfortunately no reduction in price will be made.


Our Pet Shop stocks all our pet food that we feed the dogs and cats here at Moss Cottage Boarding Kennels and Cattery.

Exercise Area

We have 4 purpose built exercise paddocks for the dogs. They are fully enclosed and secure so that your pet can have a free run about and play. We also provide a range of toys including Footballs, Frisbees, Rope Toys etc for exercise and enrichment. We never put any strange dogs together for exercise, unless of course they are from the same family and you have expressly asked us to do so.
