About us

Orestocks is a highly recommended small family run boarding kennels situated in over 3 acres of land on the edge of Tavistock and is run by Rob and Sally Hall together with groomer, Brogan.

We love dogs


Rob, Sally and Brogan want to ensure that all their furry friends have a great stay with them in a relaxed, fun, secure and stress free environment.

We are all dog owners ourselves and know how important it is for you to feel confident, knowing that when you leave their dogs for long or short stays that they are settled and happy, so we like to meet all new dogs (and their owners) prior to a boarding arrangement. They can come and have a sniff around and familiarise themselves with us and we find that this helps them to settle in a lot quicker.

Set in rolling country side, the kennels and the field are both fully secure so the dogs are safe when they sleep and play.

Orestocks is Open 365 days a year and is licensed and inspected by West Devon Borough Council and the dogs are fully insured during their stay.

Up to date vaccinations are required and proof must accompany the dog when checking in. Kennel cough is NOT a required vaccination, however we do highly recommend it.

(Vaccinations should have been administered at least two weeks prior to boarding).

Please note:

Dirty dogs are more than welcome at Orestocks, however there may be an extra charge to cover extra grooming time & procedures that may be required. Dogs will be given frequent comfort breaks so they are not on the grooming table for a long period of time.

Matted Dogs

Working alongside with the Animal Welfare Act, it is against the law to cause unnecessary pain and suffering to any animal. If your dog is severely matted, we recommend your dog is clipped off immediately.

The time taken to groom the dogs may vary. It all depends on coat condition, breed, temperament and behaviour of dog.

Belle, our 5yr old chocolate labrador, has a great time here. We pull in the gate and she knows where she is and gets really excited, she loves it and Rob, Sally, Chloe and Brogan are great with all the dogs. Its lovely to know she is being so well looked after and is happy whilst we are away. We would highly recommend them.

The best bit is when Rob, our pack leader, or Brogan, takes us in groups out onto the field and we play chase and he throws balls for us. He sometimes tries to play hide and seek with us but we always find him…
