Acres Fold Boarding Kennels is administered by Border Collie Trust GB, a rescue organisation devoted to the rescue, care, rehoming and welfare of Border Collies. Not only can you enjoy your holiday, safe in the knowledge of your dogs care and comfort but you can also help the Trust to continue its much needed work from the revenue generated by the Boarding Kennels.

Acres Fold Boarding Kennels is situated on a 4.5 acre site in the Staffordshire countryside. The accommodation is purpose built and was officially opened in 2001. The exclusive block is fully enclosed, allowing staff to give each resident dog ample care and attention during their holiday at Acres Fold.

The site has a 2.5 acre paddock in which dogs are exercised 3 times a day.

If you wish to keep your dog on its normal diet we are happy for you to supply your own food.
