Collection & delivery

We’re happy to arrange collection & delivery for a small additional charge

Dog boarding.

We exercise our dogs at least three times a day. The site is located in five acres of land and surrounded by beautiful Essex countryside, there is a large secure paddock area where the dogs are exercised. We aim to provide a quiet calm atmosphere in the kennels so they can have a stress free stay. Work is in progress to build secure exercise pens to increase the time the dogs spend out of the kennels exercised off the lead.

Cat boarding.

We are really proud of our new cattery, it is situated away from the kennel block there is plenty of wildlife for the cats to look at and we aim to give individual attention and affection to the cats whilst they stay with us. We have a selection of single, double and family rooms.


All our guests are groomed and checked daily, we have a grooming parlour on site and can arrange grooming and bathing whilst they stay with us. Please contact our staff for details of pricing. We also have staff trained to clip nails, express anal glands and clean ears.

Small animals.

We are able to care for most small animals, Rabbits, Guinea pigs, and Gerbils and small birds. Please enquire for prices as this varies. The standard boarding charge for rabbits are £6 per day, Guinea pigs £6. Hamsters and Gerbils are £4 per day.

A little bit about us

Bushmoor Kennels & Cattery of Chelmsford, Essex is now under new ownership. As of October 2014 Karen and Tim Slade have become the new owners of the business.

The staff have been retained so the regular clients will still have the same excellent relationship with the team, and your pets will continue to be cared for by them.

Tim has over 30 years of experience in both working and training dogs. Karen has a wealth of experience after a nursing career and voluntary work with a local animal veterinary charity.

This is a family business, and as dog and cat lovers, all the family will be assisting in the looking after of the cats and dogs whilst they are left in our care.

There are a number of on-going improvements planned to the kennel blocks to increase the standard of boarding accommodation and these will be implemented over the coming months.
