Reviews and Testimonials


Grey has always been made welcome here. He was shy at first being a rescue boy, but having been treated like a king he loves it now. It puts our minds at rest knowing he is so well cared for.


Bessie spent her first time in kennels here and for three weeks she came back as happy as when she went , in fact as we were leaving she spotted a staff member and pulled me to go over to themfor a fuss . I would definitely recommend these kennels run by lovely friendly people


Home from home when my dog visits here. Great staff who care for each animal. All made to feel welcome, loved and cared for whilst boarding


Arkin has been here twice so far and absolutely loves it here. They have plenty of playtime and love. Definitely would recommend and he will be going here in the future. 


Couldn’t have found a better kennels! Our girls stayed for 11 days whilst we got married and went on our honeymoon. I have never felt comfortable leaving them anywhere, until now! The most perfect kennels with the most wonderful, caring staff. Thank you! X


Fantastic Michelle and staff are brilliant, Frank the dog looks forward to his holiday with them every year


Brilliant kennels, so welcoming and friendly. I cannot recommend highly enough.


I would not leave Cyril with anyone else, he loves staying here as much as he loves coming home. Thank you to you all and Cyril will look forward to his next visit xxx


This is a brilliant kennels. Harvey and Bella have been coming here since they were puppies. I have total confidence that Michelle and her team will look after my dogs in a professional as well as friendly manner.


The Conifers and their family have made a real difference so much so I had to share! I m a dog groomer and fussy and have avoided kennels in 15 years after a worrying experience. However Michelle has made my 12 year old lab like a happy young pup again, he has his spark back, they contended with the grumpy and misunderstood Jack Russell who adores cuddles, and helped train the overly jealous 17 month old pup. I think they are dog lovers first and foremost and the business a lovely bi-product. Thanks again guys you made us all happier 💕


We used Conifer Kennels for the first time in May 2019 on recommendation, couldn't be happier. staff are warm and friendly and are passionate about caring for your dogs! Very smooth process from start to finish, updates while we were away too. Nelly loved it!!! Thankyou, will definitely be back!


We took our dachshund Sebastian to Conifer Kennels recently when we went on holiday. He is 14 and had never been in kennels before - so I was quite anxious about leaving him! But he was really well taken care of and seemed very calm and happy when we collected him again. Thanks for looking after him so well, I'm sure he'll be back! :)


Absolutely fantastic and professional. My dog has never looked so good coming out the kennels. I would give them more stars if I could. Lovely team .. highly recommend!


Was nervous to take my 2 dogs here as they had not been before and my old girl is going blind! They messaged me every couple of days to let me know how my 2 were. Upon collecting them i found 2 very happy waggy dogs!! Cannot rate Conifers high enough, friendly staff and looked after my furkids brilliantly, this will be their new regular kennels thank you so so much


Our kennel of choice in Derby for our two dogs. I feel like they are being left in safe homes. Nice that we are able to take their beds and toys in so the dogs feel more at home.
Thank you for the Facebook updates too!


Bailey, my dalmatian, has stayed at Conifer Kennels twice now for 10 days each time. He's come home clean, happy and obviously very well looked after. The second time he stayed he couldn't wait to get in there - the proof is in the pudding! Lovely owners, very accommodating especially when I needed to extend Bailey's stay. I've tried a couple of other kennels in the area and this one is hands down the best. Thank you, look forward to seeing you again soon!


Look after our cats when we're away, caring friendly staff and nice tidy facilities for the cats, would recommend for sure.


We asked our friends who they would recommend for our one year old German Shepherd to stay while we went on holiday and the first name which came up was Conifer.
We were iinvited to go and have a look around and were very impressed. Michelle was very friendly and answered all our questions, some were probably silly questions as we’ve never left him before.
When my husband dropped him off, he was reassured everything would be fine and not to worry. We had contact all through the week and a photo of our pup to show us how happy he was.
We picked him up today and he was delighted to see us, but most of all he looks healthy and full of beans!
Thank you so much Michelle for looking after him so well, we have absolutely no worries about him coming back to you in July and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends

I just picked my cat up Sootie, as this was his first time in the cattery so thought he would be very anxious, however he has come back very chilled and happy thank you so much. Highly recommended.

My dogs Toby and Bobby spent last weekend at Conifer Kennels. It was their first time staying in kennels and I was quite anxious for them. Michelle made the drop off so easy for both them and me, they went running off without a backward glance .

Michelle also kept us updated throughout the weekend and it was reassuring to know they were both ok and being good. Obviously they were pleased as punch to see us on collection but had clearly enjoyed their weekend. I cannot thank Michelle and her team enough for the care they gave our dogs and would highly recommend Conifer Kennels
