People Who Know How To Care

Rushwood Boarding Kennels and Cattery

We're set in a beautiful rural location in the heart of the Cotswolds where we provide the very best in boarding and care for all your pets.

5* Awarded Kennels and Cattery

Treating every pet as an individual is very important to us. We have large outer runs with a heated inner bedroom in a variety of configurations which enable us to be able to accommodate individual requirements.

These runs are much bigger than that normally available in a kennel environment. There is loads of space for exercising individually within grassed paddocks or on a lead and many toys, although we do encourage owners to bring their own, to make playtime even more fun and stimulating. Cat chalets have a heated inner chalet and an outer run that looks out on to a specially designed garden, it has been created to (safely) attract birds and butterflies which along with cat scratchers and other sensory toys is designed to stimulate your pet during its stay.

We also use the latest products to help your pet to settle in quickly and happily and we encourage people to visit during our opening times. No appointment is necessary.

Here at Rushwood Kennels & Cattery, we take pride in what we do

A few testimonials…


Over the years I’ve had animals (and in all sorts of places around the world), I have to tell you that you are very much the best! I am delighted to have my happy, good looking dog’s home and would like to extend thanks to those who looked after them, clipped and groomed them… It’s an enormous relief to have such a professional operation to utilise, and look forward to many more Rushwood experiences!

Jack and Louie

As we didn’t have time to thank you all on Sunday when we were collected we just wanted to drop you a note to say a big thank you to everyone who made our stay, as usual, very happy. Also – Thank you for making us look so smart-The bath and brush up made us look our best, and as usual, we had our photos taken. We are told that we are very lucky to be able to stay in such an excellent “home from home” and we agree. Lots of Licks, Woofs and Bounces.


Thank you for the way you looked after my dog (Ruby). The attention, care and treatment you and your staff lavished upon Ruby during the six weeks she was in Kennels, was excellent. There is only one complaint- Ruby will now only eat toast if it is buttered and the crust removed: as I do not normally use butter I had to go out especially to buy a packet! Whenever I have to go away without Ruby I will be asking you to accept her back at Rushwood. Further I have no hesitation in singing (tunelessly) your praises to my friends and recommending your business.


I just wanted to say an enormous THANK YOU for looking after my boys over the last 4 months. I can’t put into words how much it meant to know they have been safe and very well looked after (especially all George’s problems!) The care and love you have given them had made missing them 100 times easier to live with. I can’t wait to have them home, but I will always be grateful for everything you have done.
