The Charney story………
Stephanie Bliss moved to Ivy Cottage in the early eighties. When the family arrived it was just a house with a plot of land to build her dream business, her own boarding kennels. This had been years in the planning and now a suitable place to start the business had been found.
Then the work began! Steph continued to run her already established dog grooming business from the house while Charney Pet Care Centre was being built and around eighteen months after moving to the site the centre opened it’s doors for business. In the very beginning the pet care centre comprised of a reception area, grooming salon, purpose built housing for 15 dogs, a food preparation room and exercise area.
Over the years the pet care centre has gone from strength to strength and it now has a license to house 60 dogs. We are very lucky to have two large, fully enclosed grass dog paddocks for exercising, 6 acres of fully fenced fields for long on lead walks and a set of agility equipment to add variation to the dogs exercise time. Our doggy day care facility has recently opened providing an open plan area for dogs staying with us for short periods while owners are at work or out for the day. Professional dog grooming is available in our onsite salon with Sarah and Lisa who are both City and Guilds qualified. Our reception area has a well stocked pet shop
