About us

Kit Hill Castle Boarding Kennels and Cattery in Callington near Plymouth in Cornwall

Kit Hill Castle Boarding Kennels and Cattery was established in 1995, with the current owners, Dawn and Russell, being in charge since 2004.  Russell was born in Helston  Cornwall , so it felt like coming home.


As a Family we have been in and around animals all of our lives and they have been a major factor. Dawn spent a long time working in a local cattery in Buckinghamshire before our purchase of Kit Hill Castle.


Russell has been heavily into working dogs training and running in competition even winning places . He is a natural when training and easily brings out the best in a dog. He is a member of The Cornwall Field Trials Society.


As a family we are established Spaniel dog breeder and have been certified by The Kennel Club with an exclusive kennel name of Kitcastle .


As we are fully licenced by animal welfare we work extremely closely with animal welfare even winning the contract for animal strays from Plymouth council for many years. They are now using a kennel closer to Plymouth to save costs, but we still have a great relationship with them..
Are aim is to become the best Family  run  kennel and cattery in the Tamar Area.
