Welcome to Valentines Kennels

Hello from Sue and Don

My name is Susan Oldridge and my husband Don and I bought Valentines at the end of 2007. Since then, our team have worked hard and updated and expanded the kennels to make it a great place for your pets to visit.

We are situated just outside Weymouth in the heart of the Jurassic coast. We have a large enclosed field, overlooking Chesil beach and the sea and all of our dogs receive regular outside exercise, on or off the lead.

We are fully licenced with the local authority and have full insurance cover. We have great links with all of the vets’ practices in Weymouth. We pride ourselves on looking after your loved ones on a daily, weekly or monthly period, with care, consideration and kindness.


Valentines Kennels have recently been awarded the highest rating for animal boarding and welfare from Dorset County Council
