About Us

We, John and Lisa Tamlin, bought the farm at the end of December 2010 in a terrible, delapidated state.

We set about a large and expensive refurbishment and Docker Park Farm is now a bright, cheeful place to visit with our kennels being a happy, relaxing place for your dog.

Our biggest surprise upon taking on the kennels was the discovery that it is not a legal requirement that your pet gets exercised when in boarding kennels ..... our boarders look forward to the long, fun walks they enjoy with us and we were shocked to think many kennels do not walk the dogs.

The kennels are not the most attractive around but they are comfortable, warm and safe and most importantly of all, easy to keep clean! These will be the next project for renewal.

We have been involved in dog rescue and rehoming for years, currently have four dogs of our own - all rescues! We absolutely love dogs and cats and totally understand how you wlll feel about yours being a beloved pet and very much part of your family - as ours are.

We are getting a reputation for "turning round" dogs that have been scared by a previous kennels experience and we have lots of guests who have never been in kennels before.

We never leave a dog to be scared or lonely and invariably have someone extra in the house who "needs a little more"!
