Lisa opened the kennels and cattery back in 1998 with her mum Audrey. They have worked together over the years to achieve the outstanding reputation they now hold and have together taken the business from strength to strength.

Audrey is now mostly retired and Lisa enjoys juggling the demands of the business and raising her 3 boys with husband David from their house on site. A family of animal lovers, Lisa and David are rarely seen without a collection of the family’s dogs with them, wherever they go!


Emma began working at the kennels as a Saturday back in 2006 and has since worked her way up to her current role as full time manager in Lisa’s absence.

She is a familiar and friendly face to all our regular customers. Always patient, calm and kind, Emma is a natural with animals and knows each of our regular boarders as if they were her own.

Her confidence has grown massively over the years and she now leads a team of staff in our busier periods. She lives near to the kennels with her finacee and is expecting her first baby. 


Eve also joined us as a teenager and soon proved herself to be an indispensable part of the team. She is an amazing multi tasker and her organisational skills are second to none. 

Eve is also fantastic at capturing the dogs on video and photos and sharing them on Facebook. No one knows how she manages to get 5 cockerpoos to all sit still and look angelic at the same time!! 
Eve’s love of animals always shines through and the hard work that goes into keeping them healthy, happy and content never phases her.


Rebecca joined us as a part time member of staff in 2019 whilst completing a degree in Animal Science at Brackenhurst College, in which she gained a 2:1.

Since graduating, she has taken up a full time position and has fitted in brilliantly with the rest of the team. Always a pleasant, smiley face, knowlegeable and kind – she is a much valued asset to Slaney.
