Dog Boarding Barnet

Oak Cottage Kennels is a fully licensed and insured dog boarding service that has served the pet industry for over 35 years. Our facilities are kept in immaculate condition with an array of activities available to make sure your pet has an enjoyable stay.


We provide fully heated kennels with seperate sleeping and paddock areas in each individual run. We also have several ‘family rooms’ enabling dogs from the same home to stay together comfortably. Dogs are fed balanced, nutritious diets based on their feeding schedule at home. Special diets are always catered for as well so if you wish to bring in your own food then please let us know!

Your pet(s) has access to a multitude of exercise areas and activities at least twice a day, ranging from Astroturf play, dog walking and free play on the large rural land where they get to run around and make new friends. We are more than happy to allocate one-to-one time alone with your pets if that is required. We also provide dog behaviour mentoring to your pets and add in new skills for them to learn.

Special Requirements


Pets with special needs can be accommodated and medicines can be administered. We have constructed specially adapted facilities to best look after these special pets. We have cared for dogs with epilepsy, diabetes, amputated limbs, no exercise programme due to ligament damage, blind and deaf, very elderly and heavily pregnant with pups imminent and those needing round-the-clock supervision.



Dogs need to show proof of up to date vaccinations against Rabies, Distemper, and Parvo prior to boarding with us at Oak Cottage Kennels which is generally all covered in their annual booster injections along with a Kennel Cough vaccination which is seperate from the annual booster.
