Welcome To Pooch Palace.

Located near Pateley Bridge in the heart of Nidderdale (an area of outstanding natural beauty), Pooch Palace Boarding Kennels and Cat Kingdom Cattery are a family run business with over 10 years experience in caring for your pets. Our experienced staff are all animal lovers and will ensure your pets enjoy their time with us, providing them with care and affection throughout their stay.

Pooch Palace is simply a home from home for your pets. There are certain times you just cannot take your beloved pets on that holiday or on a work trip. Why not treat them to some royal treatment with a luxury stay here in our 5 star boarding facilities at Pooch Palace.

We are fully insured and have a 24-hour registered on call Vet and incorporate an on-site isolation facility. We want you to trust that Pooch Palace can provide complete dog care during his or her stay at our home in Pateley Bridge.

Here at Pooch Palace, we endeavour to get your dog happily “settled in” and accustomed to their new surroundings for a stress free, pleasant experience. We also know kennels are not for all dogs so we offer Home Boarding. This can help your pet feel at ease quickly, and settle into a similar routine to that which they are used to when they are away from their owners.

Our Services includes Grooming, Day boarding, Home boarding, Comfort items from home, Gun dogs catered for, Dog socialising and much more!

We know that your pets are a beloved part of your family and you would not settle for anything but the best. Let Pooch Palace help handle all your Dog Transportation requirements.

Our Dog Grooming service is now available, provided by Charlie-Anne who is City and Guilds qualified and trained at one of the country’s leading grooming schools.

What makes us special?

  • Your pets live in our countryside home (Home Boarding Option)
  • Your pets are part of our family (Home Boarding Option)
  • They are free to play and explore in our wide-open and woodland space
  • Our staff are always helpful and friendly

Available 365 days of the year, we offer individual, secure accommodation of various sizes, welcoming dogs of all sizes, big or small. Spacious family kennels are also available for two or more dogs wishing to board together.

All our pens are kept to a high standard of cleanliness, equipped with their own comfortable indoor sleeping quarters with bedding and an outdoor run area. The pens are heated throughout with state of the art digitally controlled under floor heating. Our kennels are refurbished on an annual basis.

All our guests get the care and attention they deserve; we like to take our guests out on their own day trips along with walks in our beautiful woodland and fields.
