Pampering pooches

Beck Newcombe in her newly built kennels

It’s a dog’s life at Beck’s Boarding Retreat, with its new modernised accommodation almost ready for its canine residents.
A new modern and air conditioned building provides even more exercise yards for furry family members, with a significant number of extra beds available.
Beck’s philosophy ensures all dogs get personalised care and attention and the opportunity to socialise with staff or other social friends.
“We love to get them out to exercise and socialise as much as we can,” Beck says.
“Our aim is to provide the best quality care and enjoyment for all our guests. We will spend the time getting to know pets, to ensure they have a terrific time whilst staying with us.
“That way pet owners can rest assured their pet will have a great holiday experience here, while they enjoy theirs.”
The new building adds to the range of standard and villa accommodation available, with individual or shared accommodation catering for single or multiple pet families.
Matching dogs socially (where possible) is part of the service, according to the dog’s age, size and breed.
Along with the regular exercising, quality pet foods are provided and dogs with special needs are catered for.
Day stays are also available, a great way to break up the week for dogs who love socialising.
