How to find us


Open Daily: 12pm - 4pm 6 days a week (Closed on Wednesdays) and at other times by appointment.

We are located just past Glencaple on the B725 from Dumfries on the same road that takes you past stunning Caerlaverock Castle.

From Dumfries, simply head towards the current Royal Infirmary on St Michael Street (B725), following signs for Glencaple instead of taking the left up to the hospital.

Follow that road until you have passed through Glencaple and you'll see our left turn, up the hill, clearly sign posted about a mile past Glencaple itself.

Please note that to avoid unduly stressing the dogs and to keep noise levels to a minimum, we do not show people around the kennels on a daily basis. Dogs that you wish to meet will be brought to you. However, we recognise that many people would like to be shown round just out of interest in the work we do and with this in mind we have open viewing sessions between 1pm and 3pm on the last Sunday of every month.
