"Excellent" and "constantly improving"

Creusa Kennels and Cattery is officially ‘excellent’ and ‘constantly improving’ according to Cornwall Council.

In a report following the annual licensing inspection, Animal Licensing Officer Checkie Taylor said that the premises were ‘excellent’ and added “this kennel is excellent I have no concerns at all”.

Checkie is not the only one who thinks that.

Dog owner, Tish Kendall said: “They are an amazing team! I was getting really stressed about leaving my old boxer and young pup for two weeks. My old dog is a very fussy eater and has medical problems. First two days were a bit shaky but eventually, with a lot of cuddles and patience, they got her eating canned dog meat which she wouldn’t eat at home!! They sent messages keeping me informed how they both were and photos which warmed my heart. Can’t praise them enough! Wonderful team!”

Agreeing with her is Leanne Knott who said: “Absolutely brilliant place. The staff were lovely and no hesitation when I asked to look around first. My Deefa has never stayed away from us before but I felt comfortable and safe leaving her here, I knew she was in safe hands. Massive bonus was the absolutely brilliant photos they took to show me how much she enjoyed her stay.”

When Cornwall Council inspects kennels it checks that:  

  • the animals are kept in suitable accommodation at all times taking into account the construction and size of the accommodation, the number of animals to be housed in it, facilities for exercising the animals, cleanliness and temperature, lighting and ventilation provisions.
  • suitable food, drink and bedding materials are provided and that the animals are exercised and visited regularly.
  • steps are taken to prevent and control the spread of disease among the animals and that isolation facilities are in place.
  • adequate protection is provided to the animals in the case of fire and other emergencies.
  • a register is kept containing a description of all animals received, their arrival and departure date and the name and address of the owner. The register should be available to be inspected at any time by a local authority officer, veterinary surgeon or practitioner.
