AppledownAppledown, run by Julie Shelton, was established in 1993 and is located in Eaton Bray, Bedfordshire.

The accommodation kennels were completely rebuilt in 2001/02 and in line with current standards, all the dog kennels and cat pens are individually heated and large enough to house a minimum of 2 pets.

Julie and her dedicated team of animal lovers take care of a variety of pets for long or short stays. They also offer additional services such as animal care advice, animal rehabilitation, rehoming services to name but a few. They have been involved in re-homing dogs for the last 6 years and have successfully re-homed between 400 and 500 dogs and are recognised within this field.

Appledown additionally takes in stray dogs on behalf of South Bedfordshire District Council, so they are the first point of contact if you have lost your pet within this area.

With so many animals to take care of, Julie is happy to welcome another pair of hands. So, if you've every fancied walking a dog, please drop by the Appledown Kennels. Providing you provide adequate proof if identity, you will be able to take a dog for a walk around the local area, just contact Julie for more information. Telephone 01525 220383.

Appledown Kennels will be running this year's Dog Show at the Carnival.

He has had a collie cross before and likes the breed so much he will not consider anything else
