I'd like to thank Uplands Farm Boarding Kennels for acting so fast this week when Eva was taken ill whilst being looked after by Julie and her team at Uplands boarding kennels, I was on holiday at the time. Eva was diagnosed with a twisted stomach! She was operated on by Bray House Vets in Melton Mowbray and has made a great recovery so far. I Can't thank Julie enough for all that she did and how quickly she acted!

Whilst most afternoons are dedicated to long walks with Ruby, we of course also enjoy our holidays and it is not always possible to take Ruby with us.  From an early age we introduced her to your kennels and never have any concerns whilst we are away as we know Ruby is in excellent care and receives lots of attention and assurance from yourself and also daily exercise.

We are so grateful that we have had the opportunity to build a relationship with yourself as last year Ruby sustained an injury which just wouldn’t heal.  We were at our wits end on how to manage her condition and thankfully this is where you stepped in and not only helped Ruby tremendously but gave us peace of mind knowing that she was in the right environment.  In all my years of being a dog owner I have never met anyone that is prepared to go the extra mile as you do and for that we will always be grateful and loyal to your business.  Not only did you take Ruby in to keep her in a controlled environment to aid a speedy recovery but you also honoured all the veterinary appointments with her, administering medication and constantly kept in contact with us on regular updates – service above and beyond! 

We are very pleased to report that Ruby has made a 100% recovery and is now back to running over the fields at 100 miles per hour chasing every rabbit, pheasant and hare to be seen!

Thank you very much to you and your Team and we would never hesitate to recommend you to anyone who requires that unique service for their much loved pets!

PS Plus your free range eggs are the best!!

I've used many kennels over the years and these are the best i've ever come across. My bouncy, energetic Weimaraner goes every day as a day boarder and is looked after to the highest standards. She is walked, played with and has a whale of a time whilst i'm at work. Her waggy tail as soon as we turn into the drive in the morning proves how much she enjoys going! Julie and her team are super friendly and cannot do enough to help. I cannot recommend Uplands Farm highly enough!

Uplands Farm looked after Bella the boxer for two weeks in the summer of 2012.
We were quite worried at first as Bella was only a year old, but we were reassured when we dropped her off and we got a text when she was settled in.
She was in tip top condition when I picked her up.
I think she actually missed her friends when she got home, Brilliant job one very happy owner.
Steve from Leicester, 28/07/2012
'I have been a valued customer with Uplands Farm for many years. In November 2011 I placed my dog with the new owners, and I might say I was very pleased with the service we had from them. On leaving the dog with them I received a phone call from them saying that Jade had settled in well. On returning from my holiday I picked up Jade and she was in very good condition and was well looked after. I have recommended friends and family if they needed good kennels that Uplands Farm is the place to go, I have already booked Jade in for November this year. If there was a star rating, I would give them a 5 out of 5.'
Mrs B Brown, Melton 26/04/2012
'We are fairly new customers and were understandably concerned as to how Max would settle and how he would be cared for. From the initial meeting, it was apparent that both you and your husband are very pleasant, caring, individuals and Max seemed very keen to get on with his visit! We collected a happy and contented dog and had no hesitation in leaving him for a two week period later on in the year. We would thoroughly recommend your establishment and assure potential customers that their pet will be very well looked after while in your care. Max will be back to see you shortly!

'Kate and I both wanted to thank you for your time and patience with freddie. He's a bit of a handful, but you really put our minds at ease when we dropped him off, and we know he was well looked after. Thanks very much, we'll be recommending you to friends and family!'

'I have been boarding my dogs with Uplands Farm since 2001. When I viewed the kennels then, I immediately felt at home, surrounded by peaceful open countryside. Janet, Diane and the staff are always warm, friendly, caring and approachable. They have immense knowledge and understanding of what they do, which has always been delivered to a very high standard. This is undoubtably due to their dedication and hard work.
Care of your pet is of paramount importance to them and you can be sure of a first class service at all times. The accomodation blocks and exercise area are always fresh, clean, airey and sunny, and even have counryside views! They are in a safe and secure environment.
I wouldn't consider sending my dogs anywhere else.'
                                                     Mrs Van Crayenest  07/06/11
'I have used these kennels for about 30 years and over this period each one of my last three Labrador gundogs has been well cared for by Janet and Diane. I am very particular, especially on cleanliness, but also on general caring, feeding and exercising, that these requirements are met. Compared with many other kennels I have inspected in Leicestershire, UPLANDS is the only one I would be prepared to recommend.'
                                                                           Mr P. Hargrave    06/05/11
'Our dog Jessie has been staying at Uplands farm for the past ten years, and previously our other pet stayed there. the owners have always been accomodating and courteous. We have been able to go away on our holidays knowing our dog is very happy in her holiday home.'
                                                      Mrs Cottingham  02/05/11
'We have been bringing our dog, Daisy, to Uplands on a regular basis for the past 4 years. It is the best kennels in the Melton area. Daisy is always well looked after. When she comes home she clearly has been well fed and is calm. Janet and Diane are friendly and genuinely care for the pets in their care.'
                                                                           Mr P. Kersey       27/03/11
'We have been bringing our dogs/cats to Uplands Farm for over 10 years. the animals always come first at home and this is continued in the kennels. They always come home well fed and happy. Nothing is too much trouble, be it the favourite blanket, giving a tablet or they only like gravy....'
                                                      Mr G. Milne         09/02/11

'Max, our black lab, has been using Uplands as his getaway for 6/7 years and has never had any complaints. He always returns home fit and healthy and Janet and Diane are always very welcoming. If you are ever thinking of using Uplands please do so, you and your dog/cat will love it.'
                                                   Max and Master (Ken)    06/07/10
'The ladies provide a very caring and secure environment for our cats. Our cats enjoy the attention they receive and always return to us stress free. The handovers are always efficient.'
