About Us

Loxhore has been our home for about 20 years. We share our farmhouse and 5 acres of land with 3 dogs, Baz, a Springer Spaniel, Archie, a Springer cross and Hector, a Labrador. We also have Alpacas, a few sheep, a couple of ducks and some chickens, so are very used to looking after animals.

It is a small, friendly village with little country lanes and is ideally situated for long walks, as Arlington Court and Wistlanpound are close by.

Half an hour in the car and we can be at the beach for a good run, with lots of fresh air and  a stretch of the legs.

Whether playing in the garden, going for walks or curling up in front of the Aga, your dog will be treated like one of the family.

At the end of a well structured day your best friend will have had long walks, snuggles on the sofa, fun & interactive play and be looking forward to spending an evening relaxing.

5 Star Animal Welfare Licence


Working hours


All hours by arrangement when booking.



Your dogs safety and welfare is paramount so a few rules need to apply.

All dogs must be up to date with vaccinations, including kennel cough.

Regular treatment against flea and tick infestation is also a must.

For obvious reasons bitches in season or due to be in season will not be able to stay.

I am afraid my licence does not allow for me to have puppies under 6 months.

All dogs must be non aggressive.

Dogs must wear a collar with the name & address of their owner.
