    • Feel very happy when leaving Pooma here. The staff have a great rapport with Pooma and really look after her well. I have no worries at all and John and Jemma have made a big investment in the accommodation. Very good care indeed.

    • Our vet recomended Moscar for our dog Charlie as he suffers from Diabetes and as such needs insulin twice a day. We went and had a look around and met the owners and staff. Everyone was so professional and helpful. The place was so well kept and the kennels were spotless and clean. Having not gone on holiday for about four years it was a welcome change to be able to leave Charlie safe in the knowledge he would be well looked after. Thank you so much to all the staff here for doing such a professional job caring for our Charlie. We now know he will be happy here and can hopefully go on more holidays in the future. We would highly recommend your business to anyone looking for a boarding kennels. Our Vet brings their own dog here so that is high praise indeed. 5 Stars, thank you so much from Pete and Jill

    • What a fantastic place this is, we have just picked up our little west highland terrier max after a weeks stay. The owners and staff were so good when we came to look around, it gave us such confidence while we were away. Its nice to know the owners work at the kennels as well as own it. Max came back happy and tail wagging, he had been given a full groom while he stayed here, so came out looking great. My husband and I will certainly recommend Moscar kennels to all our friends. We will be back next year, or at Christmas if we go away.
      A big thank you again to all the staff, hope you enjoy the chocolates!

    • We have a 5yr old Bully Bordeaux rescue. He is a gentle giant but has issues associated with his treatment in his first 11 months. He is terrified of gates or fences butchers shops or other dogs. We do not know what exactly he experienced before he came to us. We tried to include him on our camping hols but it was too stressful allround. We viewed many kennels but none were suitable mainly due to the bars around the kennel area and other dogs. We geared ourselves and children for no more camping hols. Luckily we were recommended Moscar. We took Rufus for a look around and they quickly saw how scared and anxious he was. The owners took him to a room upstairs with a proper door and a plug point for him to have a radio (he loves radio)!. They made sure he was walked alone in the paddock and recommended to us other doggie professionals that may help with some of his anxieties. Rufus loves going to Moscar. All the staff are very caring and the kennel is very accommodating. We are now enjoy our holidays and so does he!

    • Thank you so much to all the staff at Moscar kennels for looking after our collie dog Ben. Its the first time we have ever left him and we were a little nervous. The staff were great with us and Ben and when we picked him up he was happy with his tail wagging.
      Thanks again for all your help, hope everyone liked the biscuits? see you in the summer holidays for Ben's second stay.

    • We've just starting taking our dog George here for hydrotherapy following an accident he had over the christmas period. All the staff are lovely and it looks so clean and well maintained. George has only had a couple of sessions so far but really loves it in the pool. We have a holiday booked in a few weeks so are leaving both our cat Millie and George boarding at Moscar. I would recommend the hydrotherapy and the boarding facilities at Moscar to anyone.

    • We left our dog "Monty" here for the first time over the bank holiday weekend. He had a great time, the staff were all lovely and really put our mind at ease. Will be coming back in the summer. Thanks again to all the staff. From all the Kilner family and "Monty" the dog.

    • A MASSIVE thank you for looking after our dog over the Christmas period at such short notice. You even managed to get him groomed, so he came back looking very smart for the new year. Thanks again

    • A huge thank you to Moscar Kennels for taking care of Rosie. Having finally discovered that Rosie has an allergy to disinfectant we were concerned about the impact going into kennels would have on her skin. Moscar have been wonderful, rinsing out her kennel for an extra time with water after clearning, making sure it was dried out before she went back in, grooming her carefully with our own shampoo. She has come home as wonderful as she went in to the kennels and is groomed too! We really appreciate knowing that the staff have taken the time to make sure Rosie's allergies have been thoughtfully and kindly considered. A big thank you! The Wood Family, Sheffield

    • We take regular holidays and when we go away we want to know that our 2 much loved german shepherds are safe and well looked after
      Both walk in perfectly happy showing no signs of distrust or nervousness
      They are both on a raw food diet which they cater for and the obvious recent investment in facilities shows me that the owners are interested in the dogs welfare
      Would I recommend this kennel to other dog owners ..... Absolutely

    • I bring my cat to centre Barks @Moscar when we are away. The new cattery is great, very clean and my cat loves looking out at the moors and at the other cats around the cattery. He especially loves the heated shelf he can sit on and snuggle up.

When Eric became ill, from a long-term illness the staff were happy to take on all his needs and went the extra mile to ensure he was cared for, happy and well fed even though he struggled to eat. Very friendly, competent and accommodating staff."
