Welcome to Lime Tree Kennels. My name is Anita and I took over the kennels in July 2016.


The kennels was formerly known as Cats and Dogs Boarding Kennels, however unlike the previous owners, we decided to concentrate solely on Kennels as a business and have therefore stopped our cattery facilities.


I trained at the Animal Care College in London and am fully qualified in Kennel management.  My qualifications covers the following aspects:

  • Record keeping, Law relating to small animals, customer service, hygiene, health & safety, first aid
  • Anatomy of the dog and cat, Skeleton, Musculature, Growth, Skin, Coat, Senses, Blood, Lymphatic, Nervous, Urino-genital and Digestive systems
  • Nutrition, Diets, Feeding for pregnancy, at weaning and for geriatrics.
  • Health, Basic animal nursing and first aid, Use of drugs, Diseases, Infections, Vaccination, Parasites, Veterinary attention, Care of older animals
  • Kennel routines, Grooming, Special needs and requirements of: Quarantine, Rescue, Welfare, Showing, Breeding, Veterinary, Hunting and other specialist centres
  • Animal welfare issues, Human support dog work and organisations.


I also have many years of experience in dealing with rescue dogs and dogs with behavioral issues and was also a volunteer worker with the Dogs Trust in the UK.


I came to France to live out my dream and it certainly hasn’t failed to deliver.  I love life here and working with the dogs is extremely rewarding.  If they are happy then I am happy, it is as simple as that.


We only have 9 pens so we always have the time to give our doggy guests the individual attention they require with lots of walking, play and cuddles.


The kennel block is situated within sight of the house so we are therefore never too far away from your dog/s even when we are off duty.


Please feel free to come and visit for yourself and bring along your dog/dogs to meet me in advance of making a booking. This is a great way to put your mind at rest if you have never used a kennels before and also gives the dogs a chance to meet me and have a walk around so that it is more familiar to them when they do come to stay.  Just give me a call to arrange it.
