About us

Having four dogs of our own and only kenneling them when we really had to,
we know the stress that can be caused when having to leave one of the dearest members of your family behind.

Perhaps you have no friends or relatives in the area? Don’t like the thought of a stranger coming into your home? Or worry if they’ll actually take them for a walk?
Those were the same thoughts we had, so after 10 years of dreaming and 5 years of searching
we have been lucky enough to realise our dream and Dog Luv Kennels was born.

If you are looking for professional, quality dog care in the Somerset area, we’d love to hear from you!
Give us a call today or get in touch to discuss your individual needs.


Dog-Luv is situated in the semi rural village location of Stoford having commanding views over the surrounding countryside on the boundary of the ancient township of Yeovil yet within easy reach of the A303, London and the M5 Motorway, making us ideally placed for Somerset and the border counties of Devon and Dorset.

The kennels are housed in 2 impressively spacious purpose built facilities which offer fully heated pens and 1 purpose built quarantine station, with extensive grounds for exercising and playtime.

The owners live and work on site, so the well being and security of your beloved pet are always our primary consideration.

8am to 10 am and 5pm to 7pm – Every day

Other hours by prior agreement
