The business is located in Lidsing in the Medway town of Gillingham in Kent, close to Brompton, Hempstead and Rainham. The business is located close to the main M2 and M20 Motorway's and runs through the Towns of Faversham, Sittingbourne and Strood.

The business is currently licensed for 50 Dogs and during the peak times of trading the kennels are full to capacity, due to the reputation. Conveniently located for access to London and Ebsfleet station. The business has genuine potential to increase the income by providing a grooming service along with a collection and delivery service, as this is not currently being carried out through choice.

Due to the reputation the current owners who established the business have chosen not to tender for the local authority contract, although part of the Kennels are rented out to a local rehoming dog's charity at 1,000 per month, which is on top of the current turnover.

The business benefits from repeat business and clients come from the surrounding towns along with London, Maidstone, Isle of Sheppy and Gravesend.

The business also benefits from a good sized three bedroom bungalow which would make an ideal family home and is very well presented throughout with pleasant rural views over open fields and farmland.

Private kennels and stables are set within the 1.5 - 2 acre site along with a 1000sqf warehouse which is currently being rented out at 600 per month. The yard and work shop are rented for 500 per month and the rehoming kennels at 1,000 per month (none of which are included in the current turn over).

The Kennels have a fixed price structure for daily boarding of:
13.00 for small dogs
14.00 for medium dogs
16.00 for large dogs

Current records and accounts can be inspected after viewing.
