dog and guinea pig boarding

Recommendations in Greenwich

Angela W
Can anyone recommend a dog kennel in Ipswich? I've seen a couple advertised but they seem rather big and I'm not sure they would be suitable for a nervous dog.  Also I have two guinea pigs which I need to board, any ideas?

Sorry Maisie, no difference!  I don't tend to use the phrase dog boarder as that's also what kennels do, and looking after someone's dog in your own home is nothing like putting them in a kennel!

Does anyone know how long the work between Ipswich and Colchester is going on for. Going towards Colchester I can see that they have resurfaced the road, but I never see the workmen at work. Just wondered.

Well if they can't get at you with the town roadworks they are trying it a different way. sounds like our council or SSC.
