Boarding Kennels and Cattery in South Cheshire
A family run business situated in five acres of beautiful Cheshire countryside, offering knowledgeable and friendly care for your cherished pets. We strive to give your pet the very best care.
The establishment was built in 1989 by Pete and Bev Barber, as our daughter Rebecca grew up she helped us. Bev holds an Animal Care National Certificate and a Diploma in Kennel Management; she is also a professional dog trainer. Rebecca has BSc(hons) Animal Health MPhil Biological Sciences.
We are a knowledgeable, professional team with over 30 years of dog showing, working, breeding and a lifetime of large and small animal ownership. We breed and show Dobermanns and Border Terriers under the Alcumlow Affix. We also judge these breeds at championship show level. Our puppies are very carefully reared, health checked, loved and only very occasionally available.
We have very successful show dogs some of which are shown on these pages. All our dogs are our pets along with our Cat, Taffy and our Shetland ponies.
Our establishment prides itself on cleanliness, care and attention to detail.
We love and care about all the pets we care for. Love and cuddles are part of our job!

Introducing our 2018 champion – Dobermann Champion Amazon Chanel for Alcumlow. She continues to do well at showring and will hopefully produce puppies in the near future.
On a sad note we pay tribute to ‘Stella’ CH Freelance Temptation for Alcumlow, JW. Our beautiful Doberman died in late 2013. She was a gorgeous dog of which we were proud to own and show. She was a larger than life character with a strong will and presence. She will always be in our hearts, so sadly missed every day.
