Zoom, our 5 year old springer spaniel stayed at Duck End Farm last year. She had a great time, she was very happy and relaxed when we picked her up! Zoom and I recommend Duck End Farm and Zoom looks forward to her next holiday there in the summer x x
Monty Flannagan says thank you.
Twix, Ruby and Jess, my 3 labs, stay regularly at the kennels - in fact Twix has been going for 14 years!! They absolutely love it and always bound up to Martin when they arrive! All the staff there are really caring and so obviously love dogs. Would recommend Duck End Kennels highly enough.
We left Monty the Bassett and MrC the Bombay black for 8 weeks earlier this year. It was the first time for both , both are neurotic and clingy animals and we were really anxious about it. We were completely thrilled and reassured by the experience when we collected two very healthy and happy boys. We're even a tiny bit miffed as suspect that Monty would rather be back there with his chums and all the attention he obviously got. We will have absolutely no hesitation in taking them to Duck End Farm again and again.
Our dogs enjoy their
stays at Duck End enormously and although I doubt our dogs loyalty,
it is nice to see them bound up to Martin and his team. The staff
are very accommodating and nothing seems to be too much trouble.
We would certainly recommend Duck End Kennels.
Our dog Daisy has been holidaying with Martin for
the last 8 years. I know she enjoys it because when Martin brings her
home she sniffs round the house while Martin informs me of her stay
then when he goes to leave she's at the front door ready to go back
with him! Our puppy Westie joined Daisy last year and it is obvious
he enjoys himself as well. Knowing this enables me to go on holiday
and not worry about the dogs. Martin obviously takes an interest in
the dogs in his care because he will often relate incidents of what
my two have been up to. He is always very obliging and tries his hardest
to fit them in when we want to pop away for a few days last minute.I've
never tried another kennels but now I wouldn't want to!
have two Westies and we have historically been nervous about
leaving them or entrusting them to others. Having been recommended
to Duck End we were still very concerned when we dropped the
dogs off for their first stay but we needn't have worried. The
dogs love visiting "Uncle
Martin" and it is joyous to watch their faces as they realise
where they are going and how they love being in the outside enclosures
having fun with the other "runners"! We have found the
fees charged by Duck End to be no more expensive than any other
kennels in North Essex but when it comes to the dogs' well-being
nothing is too good and in our view Duck End is as good as it gets
and over the last 6 years has consistently provided excellent care
at all times of the year.
Just a quick email saying thank you. Your kennels are superb and
our dogs are not only happy but healthier for being there. We'd
like to enquire as to what food you fed them? It may be helpful
for keeping their weight down. Our lab, Lucy, looks fabulous and
we'd like to continue her weight loss then control. Also, can you
tell me if Girlfriend was active whilst in your care? She's galloping
and playing now. She's not done that for a long time. Again, thank
you for your caring and having such a fantastic place for us to
house our family members whilst we're on holiday. It's like they
were on holiday too!

Just like to say a big thank you to all the staff

Many thanks for the pictures. It looks like Ralph
had a wonderful stay and can’t wait
to come back this weekend.
Would like to thank you for looking after Pluto and Roxy for
the last 10 days. They were both extremely happy to be home and
did not leave our sides for a moment but they were themselves if
not a bit better behaved and Pluto's rash was completely gone. Happy
So thank you very much again and we will definitley be back.
Wow Martin, now thats what I call service! I can
tell that you are primarily concerned with the wellbeing
of Penny. That is so lovely.
Thanks a million
