We are a a family run business located in the village of Halstock near Yeovil off the A37 (Yeovil to Dorchester Road). Our facilities are set within our own 40 acres. We aim to provide our residents with top quality facilities with plenty of space to play and relax in. 

Jeanette is a qualified veterinary nurse, who worked in Bournemouth for many years, prior to this she ran a successful dog grooming business. 

In 2001 we moved to Wales,  as Jeanette accepted a job in the veterinary emergency service in Cardiff.

Whilst living in Wales, we then ran an equestrian centre and small kennels along side our sheep farm.

We moved back to Dorset in 2012 to set up a unique five star Kennel and cattery and look forward to you visiting us before you decide where you want your pet to stay while you are on your holiday.




About us

Mrs.Vaughan from Dorset  ​says

"It's been great to find a kennels that I feel comfortable leaving my four legged best friend ! It was clear Jeanette made my little dog feel very secure and happy but she was also very sensitive to my worries about leaving him.. When I collected my pup he was very settled and it was obvious he had enjoyed his time at Hickory Lodge. It's a relief to have a such caring back up for when i next have to go away."
