Lumphanan Pet Hotel
For the professional care of your loved dog we have a selection of 10 self-contained suites of a very modern design opened in 2010.
Covid-19 – we are very much open at the present time.
At our secluded and exclusive premises, your dog can be assured of exceptional individual care and attention. With lots of very happy clients who return time after time, our aim is to provide a happy and stress-free environment, with diet and attention to suit so you can leave your much-loved pet with complete peace of mind.
Our dog suites have light bedrooms with full-height, solid-built walls (not panels) with glass doors and attached exercise rooms.
This creates a quiet, calm, balanced environment that is secure and full of natural light.
At Lumphanan Pet Hotel our aim is to recreate a comfortable home environment to help your dog settle quickly and enjoy their surroundings.
Each dog, or ‘family’ of dogs, is walked individually twice a day for 20 – 40 minutes in the surrounding countryside, depending on the needs of your dog.
Plus there is “human” time between walks where they are again out of the kennel and participating in a selection of activities suited to your dog, such as cuddles, grooming or ball time in the exercise area.
About Lumphanan Pet Hotel
Jo, the owner and manager, is a passionate dog lover who has kept, and previously, competed working gundogs, collies and terriers her whole life.
She had the idea to build the pet hotel in 2006 to bring dog boarding into the 21st century after being unable to find somewhere to leave her own dogs. So planned, funded and project managed Lumphanan Pet Hotel from start to finish, opening in April 2010.
She has previously worked in farming with dairy cattle, commercial sheep, race and hunt horses. From this background, Jo progressed to land management, the service industry and hospitality for Scottish estates.
First time I have put our two dogs into kennels and was a bit apprehensive as they are both big excitable dogs that can be a handful at times but I needn't have worries as Jo was fantastic with them and they seemed to have really enjoyed their time there. Will book them in again when I have the need for it.
So glad to see Jo again and my 2 Fur babies had a great time, Luna and Sasha were well looked after and 5 star kennels here as always, so can't wait to have them stay again, Jo the owner is very professional and loves the doggies, and feel very safe leaving them there, just a great place and they really love your dogs. 😄😄🐕🐕❤️
We took our dog Rio to Jo for a 1-1 session for advice and guidance on how to keep him calm and stop him being so reactive around other dogs. Within the space of an hour we had learned so much tips and things to try with Rio to take his attention off of other dogs and stay by our side. We got to try the skills out around her dogs and we were so surprised at Rio focusing more on myself and my partner rather than reacting to the other dogs. I would definitely recommend Jo to anyone that is looking for advice and guidance on training their dog, she was so knowledgeable and patient with us, making sure we had lots of practice. It was well worth £15!
Jo is just fantastic, she runs a wonderful home from home for your fur babies. She has been so kind during a very difficult time for me and has cared for my fur babies with love and understanding and has gone above and beyond what you would expect from an establishment of this kind. I have no hesitation at all in telling anyone that if you need to leave your fur babies for any reason then you cannot go wrong with booking then in here with Jo. Have a look at her page and see the videos, my pups are the Irish Setter and Standard Poodle, they are having a ball and won't want to leave of that I am sure. Thank you Jo, I shall be using you again for sure and will tell all I can about you.v
Our dogs often stay at Lumphanan Pet Hotel when we go on holiday. They love it and are always very well cared for. One of our boys has a chronic medical condition and Jo totally gets his needs and fulfils them completely. She is so kind and we are totally confident in her abilities. The dogs dash in to her facility and love their stay and we always feel happy leaving them there. It's great having such a great place to leave them knowing they are in safe hands!
I have been using Lumphanan Pet Hotel for many years. Our dogs love going there and it’s a great pace for us as the routine is very close to what our dogs get at home. They are walked twice a day totalling one hour and this is a great part to the kennels. If you have unsocial dogs it’s a great place to board them as the walls of the runs out the back of the kennel are solid so the dogs do not see each other when they are in the outside part of their run.
Highly recommend these kennels 100%. Dogs are always very happy to go back there and are really well cared for. Owner is a TRUE dog lover and the dogs know this. So nice to be able to go away with the peace of mind that my dogs are happy and being looked after properly
Great set up. Owner and staff very caring and always willing to go the extra mile. I’ve had lots of support from Jo with my “headstrong” pup and would highly recommend the pet hotel to others.
After booking a late break and local kennels being unable to take my 2 boxers Gabby and George, I was happy to take the advice of a friend and book into Lumphanan Pet Hotel.
The conditions of the kennels are absolutely first class, and my dogs settled very quickly into their new "home" for the week. I'd happily recommend them to anyone looking to have their dogs looked after while they are away.
Jo is the most amazing caring person, you couldn’t leave your fur babies in safer hands! She and her hand picked team take pride in their work and look after pets safe as anything .
My nervous dog enjoyed the stay and loved Anna and Steve. Excellent clean, warm and modern facilities and care, I would not leave my dog in any other kennel.
This was the first time I have left my two German Shepherds at the Lumphanan Pet Hotel and I would not hesitate to leave them there in future.
My dogs spent four days staying at the kennels.
The owner is very professional, and knowledgeable, the kennel is very well run, and my two girls obviously had lots of walks and attention because they both slept all evening when I brought them home!
(She even did some “walking to heel” work with both of them).
The dog bedding was all washed for our return.
And the girls did not smell of “kennels” at all.
Very reasonable rates too.
I am delighted that they were so well cared for, and I am more than happy to recommend to others.
