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?

ur all so rite but the matter is the owners its got to be sad wen they find out ,i would be mad if they hadnt told me , i think they should bring the licence back ,
Sorry if it's already been mentoned but I read that it was going to be law from next year to have all dogs micro-chipped due to the expense councils pay looking after strays. So, surely it follows that they will scan all dogs, dead or alive?
