Wychwood has accommodation to suit all breeds of dogs from Yorkshire terriers to Newfounlands. In May 2008 Wychwood recently upgraded the kennels by building the "Ozzie Block". The newly built Ozzie block is light, airy and boasts individual exercise run areas. This unit allows us to house two or more large dogs from the same home together. All dogs are housed , exercised and fed on an individual basis expect from those from the same home. Wychwood has a securely fenced exercise yard where your dog can run free and play with the toys. Dogs at Wychwood are also individually exercised twice a day. Any medication that a dog requires can be given but prior notice would be appreciated. All dogs that board at Wychwood MUST be fully vaccinated, this includes the kennel cough inoculation which must be given 7 days prior to boarding as it s a live vaccine.

Kitty Kottage has just been completed in May 2008 which is a brand new state of the art uPVC cattery boasting 30 pent house pens. Each comprising of a elevated sleeping area which can be accessed from the exercise area via a ladder and cat flap which leads to a spacious but cosy sleeping cabin where each one can be individually heated. The Kottage also has its own separate kitchen and food preparation area. Wychwood is very proud of the newly built cattery and encourage new customers to come and view and feel sure these facilities will not disappoint. Call us on 01952 604285 to arrange a viewing.

Richard Lutner

I have been connected in the initial starting of the kennels and cattery back thirty six years ago, as my parents founded it. Meaning I am very passionate for it's success and fulfilling the needs of our customers. I enjoy the active lifestyle that goes hand in hand with the running of Wychwood. It has also enabled me to pursue my other passion, pigeon racing. Animals belonging to others and mine bring me great satisfaction.

Dena Lutner

I started twenty five years ago when Richard and I took over from the original partnership. With time we worked towards our goal, continually improving and upgrading the facilities. I love at Wychwood as our family have been able to enjoy its benefits from chickens to horses. Also along with our bengals and flatcoated retrievers which complete our happy home.
