Welcome to Low Shires Boarding Kennels

Hi, I'm Jackie Sheard the owner of Low Shires Boarding Kennels, near Easingwold, York. A small family run facility which affords us the opportunity to specialise in giving individual care, love and attention to each treasured dog.
Established for over 20 years, the kennels are set in the peaceful North Yorkshire countryside. We are located on a quiet farm away from main roads, within easy reach of York, Thirsk, Easingwold and surrounding villages.
At our lovely boarding kennels, we present a home from home secure environment which will offer you peace of mind while your dog is on holiday with us. Our guests are exercised 4 times a day on safe field walks, either on or off lead, in 50 acres of privately owned farmland with no extra charges.

I cannot rate these kennels highly enough. Absolutely amazing. I've been sending my dog for over a year and always get a friendly service, very clean and very warming atmosphere. Buzz loves going to stay with his Aunty Jackie.

Puppy at the Vet

We keep a close eye on your dog throughout its visit. If we think they're feeling under the weather, our personal vet is just a 2 minute drive away and is happy to assist.

We are happy to administer your prescribed medications.


We are proud

All our kennels are spotless and very generous in size with the option to get some fresh air in the part covered individual outside runs.

No doggy smells here!

After a past bad kennels experience, I was really worried about leaving my baby, but she's had an amazing time and has come home happy. You can tell Jackie really loves her job and this helps create a relaxed friendly atmosphere for any dogs that are a little nervous about being left.
