Reviews from our dog daycare and dog boarding clients
Miriam Rustemeyer and Russel Bassett – vetenarians
“As a couple of vets we are probably more particular than most about who cares for the four-legged members of our family. Amanda and her small team at Margate Country Dog Resort and Daycare are passionate and dedicated. Their facilities are clean and welcoming and Gus loves being there. It is a weight off our minds knowing we can go away and leave him somewhere that he loves spending time, and where we know he will get the amount of oversight and attention that he needs. We wouldn’t trust him to anyone else!
“Dogs are the best judges of character, any dog owner knows that! So when we went for a tour of Margate Country Dog Resort and our 2 Border Collies didn’t cower or show other signs of discontent (like they did at previous kennel tours) we knew Margate Country Dog Resort was the right choice for us. We have never gone away without our girls (7yo and 4yo) mainly because we never found anywhere that felt right. Until we stumbled across Margate County Dog Resort.”

“Our black Labrador Friday loves her day of doggy day care with Amanda. Great facilities and great team! They really love dogs, and it shows”
“Our girls have done several holidays there now, their most recent was 15days! They also do doggy day care. We even booked them in for a respite holiday to give them some time away for our toddlers!!! Our girls love it there… As we drive down the driveway they are thumping around in excitement. The minute they are out of the car bang they are off! They absolutely love their holidays and daycare! They are excited to go and they come home and are so exhausted that they sleep for hours! Amanda is amazing. She is knowledgeable, so so friendly and nothing is a problem. We are kept informed about how the girls are doing via facebook updates and also personal messages. Amanda even sends messages to check on the girls when they are not there! Amanda genuinely loves what she does which is reflective in how she interacts with us and our girls! The staff at Margate Country Dog Resort look after our girls so well that I often think our girls wont want to come home! That doesnt make me sad it make me ecstatic that they love it because it means they are being well looked after. We are so thankful to Amanda and her team at Margate Country Dog Resort for taking away the worry and looking after our girls like they their own!”
“Deciding to send my puppy to Margate Dog Resort, to burn off energy with every other kind of dog – amongst hills of sand, a running creek and hundreds of tennis balls – was the decision that led, two years later, to a relatively calm and nearly always happy dog. Thank you to Amanda, Sue and Holly for making that possible!”
