A COUNTRYSIDE business has been named kennel of the year at a national showcase event.
Ridge Hill Boarding Kennels and Cattery, at Ridge Hill Farm in Utkinton, won the top annual prize at the Ultimate Pet Show held at the NEC in Birmingham.
Owners Sue and Andrew Williamson and assistant Leann Davenport have been running the kennels as a small business for nine years and the team are delighted with the success.
Sue said: “Leann and I pride ourselves on our caring and friendly service and endeavour to give our guests an enjoyable holiday, which has been acknowledged by their owners of the dogs who have shown their appreciation by voting for us.
“We now have a growing business, with purpose built kennels, which are spacious and have underfloor heating for our guests comfort.
“In addition all the dogs have the benefit of excellent paddocks for their twice daily exercise and play, which all customers are encouraged to visit before booking in their pets.”
