THE WORK ON THE NEW KENNEL BLOCK STARTED LATE DECEMBER.  IT WILL BE A STATE OF THE ART KENNEL BLOCK ONCE IT IS UP AND RUNNING WHICH IS EXPECTED TO BE LATE MAY. (OK SO ITS NOW JULY AND ITS STILL NOT FINISHED BUT A LITTLE LIKE BRITISH RAIL - WE ARE GETTING THERE!!!) THEY WILL BE ABOVE AND FAR BEYOND THE REQUIREMENTS THAT BOARDING KENNELS WILL HAVE.

THERE ARE GOING TO BE TWO BLOCKS, ONE IS WHERE THE KITCHEN AND FOOD PREP AREA, THE FOOD STORE AND PURPOSE BUILT WHELPING FACILITIES, WHICH WILL COMPRISE OF 4 VERY LARGE SLEEPING QUARTERS AND MASSIVE RUNS.  THE SECOND BLOCK IS GOING TO BE THE MAIN BLOCK FOR MY ADULTS, WHICH IS MASSIVE - OVER 30 METERS IN LENGTH AND 10 PLUS METERS WIDE!!  I COULD HAVE KNOCKED OUR HOUSE DOWN AND BUILT A 5 BED ROOMED HOUSE FOR THE SAME MONEY BUT IT WILL BE WORTH EVERY PENNY FOR MY BABIES.
