Genuine Customer Feedback

Hi Sue – Thank you for Moss and Wish’s stay. You’ve probably guessed I love my dogs to bits so it was lovely to see it is obvious to you as well. They so obviously loved their holiday with you and look forward to coming to see you again soon.

Jenny Brydges

When I collect Bertie from Towsers I sometimes wonder who has had the better holiday – it is more of a dog’s health farm than a kennels!I certainly feel very confident in leaving him in Sue and Shaun’s very capable hands.

Richard Kemp, Taunton

Thanks Sue – It was so lovely to see Belle obviously having a great time.  I didn’t think she would pine too much!

Julia Barker, Bideford

Thanks to Sue and Shaun for looking after Flipper so well. When we drive to the kennels she is so excited to see Sue and Shaun, she can’t wait to start her lovely holiday with them and we can relax knowing she is having a great time.

The Ivers Family, Devon

Sidney has visited Towsers many times over the years. He trots off into the kennels with his ball and bed without a backward glance! We can go away in the knowledge he is safe and happy in Sue and Shaun’s care. We would certainly recommend Towsers.

Gerry Scott

There is no other kennel in the West Country that I would be happy to leave my Springer Spaniel, Jazz. She starts to squeak and jump around in the car as soon as she knows where she is and races in to greet Sue and Shaun.

Alex, Somerset

This is no ordinary boarding kennel, this is doggy heaven and my two goldies adore Shaun and Sue – we’re almost jealous!

Martin and Jayne, Barnstaple

Brook is a rescue Saluki cross and doesn’t do change, but I needn’t have worried with Sue and Shaun to care for him. He adores them and his holidays with them.

Phil, Braunton

Anyone who puts their dog’s needs high on their list of priorities needs to visit Towsers, it is immaculately run with such dedicated and caring owners. So lovely to see the owners all the time and not anonymous staff, this is the best kennel we have found whilst travelling the length and breadth of the country – excellent!

John and Diana, Torrington

Oh my goodness, Seamus didn’t want to come and sulked for two days when we collected him, I don’t think you can speak more highly of a kennel than that!!We’ll definitely be back! (Or at least, Seamus will!)

The Johnsons, Devon

Moving to Devon, we were so pleased to find Towsers Kennels. It was just what we were looking for - a warm, caring "holiday hotel" where we could happily leave our very elderly spaniel, confident that she would be beautifully looked after by Shaun.
Our new little pup, Lucy, loves Sue's twice weekly training classes and can't wait to race up to the paddock to see her doggy friends. Although she's the baby of the class, Sue has taught her so much in just a few weeks and has the patience of a saint!
We would definitely recommend Towsers to anyone who really cares about their dogs - heated kennels and twice daily walks - doggy bliss!

Michael and Ann Boyt, Yarnscombe, Devon

When we first had Bruno, our Black Labrador, it was important to find a good kennels for those times when we were on the move and couldn’t take him with us.
Towsers has proved to be one of our better decisions. The care that is taken to make sure that their visiting dogs have all of their “shots” is reassuring and many Hotels that I have stayed in have shown less interest in the needs of their human residents than Towsers do in their Canine residents.
Bruno is now three and has visited Towers many times (we have to travel for work most months) for stays of a few days to a week or more........we might feel guilty at leaving him, but on arrival he always trots off very happily with “Uncle Sean”........after leaving his calling card on the gate post! When we collect him, a happy and healthy dog, he bounces around with the enthusiasm of an eleven year old returning from a school holiday!
We made the right choice!
