“Freddie my Irish Wolfhound was well looked after and...”

Written on: 13/10/2009 by taturner (1 review written)

Freddie my Irish Wolfhound was well looked after and we don't think he wanted to leave. The staff were extremely kind and friendly and best of all loved dogs, to me it appeared to be more than just a business they really do care about the dogs in their care which to us is most important. We had to take Freddies own food and this was not a problem. The price is reasonable as the care is of high a standard.

I would certainly recommend 5 star kennels as our experience has been a good one, we… Read Full Review

We have just collected our dog Jasper from the kennells and

as we enter and he actually tries to push the door open to the
kennells with his paws as he is eager to get in. staff very
efficient and friendly and after mentioning our dog has a problem with weeping eyes they bathe it for him whilst in
their care. Jasper is so happy to go there I feel he is geting

“The Weimeraner loves this place. In my opinion 5 Star...”

Written on: 01/03/2009

The Weimeraner loves this place. In my opinion 5 Star Felsted, Great Dunmow is the best kennels we have ever been to, if we couldn't board him here then we simply wouldn't go away. He is healthy and happy when he comes home, he is excited to go in and has a clear and obvious bond with the owners. We ring up regularly and we they always know our dog individually and tell us truthfully how he is. He needs a lot of exercise and we know he gets it here.
We are just about to board our baby Great… Read Full Review

“5 Star were recommended to me and I have no hesitation...”

Written on: 10/11/2008 by cmarshall (1 review written)

5 Star were recommended to me and I have no hesitation recommending them to anyone - they are brilliant! I picked my dogs up a couple of weeks ago and they were just having a wash and blow dry - the weather had been awful but my dogs looked and smelt great! I can't fault the staff - even when one of my dogs had a sore foot and the vets had said it was fine, they decided it wasn't and took her to the vet again to find she had a tick in her paw - they are wonderful people who truly care and I… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/11/2008 by cbutler1 (2 reviews written)

5 Star Felsted - Well what can I say, I wouldn't board my dog at any other kennels they really know how to treat him. He went in and couldn't wait to get through the door and when he came out he was as lively as anything and missed us but obviously loved his stay. Thank you for this 5 Star for being so polite and loving to my and putting my mind at rest while I was away, I will definitely recommend you to anyone… Read Full Review

“My dog was in Five Star kennels in Felsted for 2 weeks...”

Written on: 24/09/2008 by Janet Carter (1 review written)

My dog was in Five Star kennels in Felsted for 2 weeks and I was disgusted with the condition of him when I collected him. He looked as though he had lost a lot of weight, and he smelt all musty. We had provided his own bed which we suspect he hadn't slept on as the staff brought his own bed out of storage! My usually friendly and calm dog wouldn't even respond to his own name. He acted like a thing possessed when he was let out as though he had hardly seen daylight for a fortnight. My dog is… Read Full Review

Dog has been there on several occasions. Nothing to complain about. Some dogs just do not like to be away!

Brianj's Response to Janet Carter's Review

Written on: 24/11/2010

I found this review not helpful because...it lacks specifics. Did the dog owner / reviewer discuss the dog's condition & condition with the kennel operators ?. Was the dog, as so many are, overweight / obese before boarding ?. Has the owner ever used other boarding kennels, and if so, why did she change to this kennels ?. I'm mystified by the complete lack of balance in her review - if there wasn't anything good about the kennels why did she leave her dog there ?; (If she took the time to inspect the kennels before booking). The contrast between this review and all the others posted is striking. In wonder if it isn't simply a bad tempered response to a disagreement over billing or similar.

Written on: 12/01/2009

My dog always goes to five star and he loves it. He goes bounding in to meet the staff whenever he goes back and is always fine when he comes out. I now have another dog and will have no hesitation in sending her there too. Maybe your dog just didn't like being away and is sulking because you left him; is he normally spoilt at home? He's bound to be a bit musty as there are no carpets or sofas for them to rub against in a kennel; if you want your dog to sleep on a sofa and be spoilt maybe you should consider a house sitter?

Cat arrived home from 5 Star Felsted calm and unpeterbed and not the bundle of nerves we were expecting. The cattery has recently opened a luxury set of suites and due to lack of spaces the cat is booked into these for the near future...we'll never get him to come home!… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/04/2008

I would not leave my dogs at any other kennels. He loves going t0 5 Star Felsted, he loves the owners and is very well looked after. He is exercised lots and is clearly treated like he is on holiday. When we ring up, the staff talk to us at lentgh about what he has been up to, it makes our holidays without him bearable. We have been with this kennels for 2 years and would never go anywhere else… Read Full Review
