Canine Country Retreat

Boutique Kennel Service

At the Canine Country Retreat, in Dunshaughlin Co. Meath, your dog will enjoy a personalised and stress-free stay within our premium dog boarding facility.



Located within a countryside setting in Dunshaughlin, the boarding kennels have been limited to four large kennels to provide a home away from home service. The limited kennel number allows for the highest level of personal care of, and attention to, your dog.



Central to the ethos at the Canine Country Retreat is that your dog is allowed to enjoy extensive exercise and free running each day as it is proven to promote the physical & mental health of a dog. This element of the service is provided through the use of a 14 acre ring fenced paddock that allows for structured walks & ample free running.



High-energy dogs/working breeds will benefit particularly well from their stay at the Canine Country Retreat. A purpose-built dog treadmill allows for a consistent exercise routine through the harsh winter months. As a result of the extensive exercise and fun provided each day, guests of the Retreat are always relaxed and content when bedding down for the night.



To provide peace of mind when you are away and missing your pet, each kennel has a Full HD live video feed to allow you to check on your prized asset whenever you wish. Night vision allows for 24 hour viewing. There is no additional cost to avail of this element of the service.


  • review rating 5  We left our dog with Jonathan for a family wedding and we were so at ease the whole time she was there. Jonathan was so lovely and professional to deal with, I would highly recommend the canine country retreat to anyone. Our dog had a great time and we were so relaxed knowing she was in safe hands!

  • review rating 5  Canine Country retreat..... 100%. OMG, we called in to view the facilities before booking and were blown away !! We have a 16yr old springer who’s never been in kennels while we were on hols so we were a little aphrenrsive , however exceeded our expectations, don’t think “Lyla” wanted to come home. A very personal touch from Jonathan, and we could view her on the kennels cctv anytime we wanted.

  • review rating 5  So delighted we found this kennel for our 2 dogs! Facilities are excellent with lots of secure space for your dog to exercise. Jonathan, the owner, is really great with the dogs and has a very sensitive approach. Each Kennel has its own cctv camera so while away you can have a peek at your doggies :) 100%Highly recommend Canine Country Retreat!
