The Story of Warathwaite Kennel

Joanne Briggs of Warathwaite Luxury Dog Kennel at Crufts

Hello, my name is Joanne Briggs, owner of Warathwaite Luxury Boarding Kennel. As a dog lover, I believe that every dog deserves the highest standard of care and that’s what we offer at Warathwaite. With a clear vision of providing the best care and facilities and after several years of hard work and planning, Warathwaite Luxury Boarding Kennel was born.

We’re based on a Cumbrian farm, near Armathwaite and Carlisle and just off the main A6 route. There’s lots of space and we’ve been able to build a purpose built dog kennels to create an ideal place for dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds.

Having a background in nursing and the knowledge and skills gained as manager of a residential care home, I am fully committed to ensuring the health, welfare and comfort of every single dog in my care. Furthermore, my previous experience means that I have an understanding of any medical care your dog may need. That includes aspects of expert dog grooming to ensure that your dog stays healthy with great posture.

In my spare time, I show and judge Shih Tzu dogs. I have several award-winning Shih Tzus and in 2018 I was proud to win the reserve CC at Crufts with my Shih Tzu Victoria (Warathwaite Pure as Snow).

So, whether you're relaxing on holiday, looking for professional dog grooming services or needing convenient day care, you can have the peace of mind that your dog is in the safest hands - and he or she is relaxing too.

I look forward to meeting you and your dog.
