Welcome to Sadberge Boarding Kennels & Cattery

Sadberge Boarding Kennels and Cattery Sadberge Boarding Kennels and Cattery Limited prides itself on ensuring you can leave your pet, knowing it will be safe, happy and relaxed. Our attention to detail and mantra of ‘Holiday Camp For Pets’ summarises the stay they will receive.

The establishment was taken over and developed in 1982 by the late L.W.Elders, who sadly passed away in March 2023. The business then became a limited company and is now ran by Rachael (The Director), who was Les' step daughter. Rachael has a team of dedicated, highly experienced, animal loving staff. Conveniently located in the countryside between Darlington and Teesside, just off the Sadberge junction on the A66.

With 5 acres of land which comprises of varied size exercise areas, we can offer both on and off lead secure exercise for all types of dogs. We offer three different cattery accommodations to suit your individual feline needs and home from home inside accommodation for your small furry or feathered friends.

We welcome you come and view our facilities and meet the team here at Sadberge. We ask for you to make an appointment so we can dedicate the time to you on a one-to-one basis and discuss your individual requirements.

More About Us

Through dedication and hard work, we have gained an impeccable reputation for offering quality pet care services. The fact that so many customers leave their pets in our care time after time is testament to the quality of the service we deliver.

Dog Feeding

We can supply a high quality working dry complete and working wet food which is included in the daily rate.

Grain free, hypoallergenic options and veterinary prescribed or special diets must be provided by the owner. We can store and serve, raw, cooked meats or tuna if you know your dog is a particularly fussy eater. We provide all food bowls, including slow feed bowls for those who simply love their food.

Home Comforts

Can I bring my pets own home comforts?
Yes, please do. We provide a range of bedding and all feeding equipment however if you want to pack your pet off on their holiday with some specific items from home you are welcome to do so. You may also bring any special treats/toys.


For the dogs and cats we have kennels, houses with split levels, bungalows and penthouses! For the smaller animals we have a hutch with run or you can use your own cage.


We make sure your pets have exercise to suit their needs in our 5 acre secure grounds.

For example, all dogs in standard kennels are away from their kennel unit four times a day in a mixture of indoor and outdoor exercise areas. All dogs have two periods, of 20-minute exercise sessions (on or off lead or a combination of the two) included in the daily rates.

My dog loves this place! You can tell the staff really love dogs and have their wellbeing at heart. Only downside is my dog is always grumpy when he has to leave! Must be all the fun he has! I have been a customer of Sadberge Kennels for over 10 years and wouldn't go anywhere else.
