About us

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

We love dogs

Rob, Sally and team 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).

Orestocks Kennels

Please note the following conditions of grooming:

  • Flea treatment if found to be needed is charged at £10 and will be added to the cost of the groom.
  • Pads n Paws welcomes dirty dogs for grooming, however, should extra time be required an additional charge will be added to the groom cost.
  • Matted dogs – whilst Pads n Paws will remove matts if they are easily brushed out, extra time spent de matting will be charged at £15 per half hour. However, under The animal Wefare Act, it is an offence to cause an animal unnecessary pain and suffering so if an animal is found to be severely matted, the areas must be shaved off for their comfort. This would be communicated to the owner prior to clip off.
  • Pads n Paws Professional Pet Groomers has a restraint free grooming policy (unless there is a safety issue for the dog) so the groom times can vary depending on breed and behaviour.
  • Regular comfort breaks are given to allow for toileting and refreshment.
