Yes, we have over 40 years experience owning a variety of breads from working dogs to family pets. Recently breeding our own line of Vizslas.

We have a licensed vehicle meeting all safety requirements for transporting multiple dogs in transit.

All dogs walked wear a AV collar fitted with an ID tag with our details together with a GPS tracker. Within the care plan, you will complete a section on behaviours. If your dogs proves its recall is not good, we will not let them off the lead unless we are sure it is 100% safe to do so. Even If we do trust them and have proven in the assessment that they do come back we do not let dogs run off too far. We work very hard on recall during our walks. The dogs think it is a game but they are working on the safety of the walk.

We must see before accepting the dog that the veterinary documentation is validated before staying with us. A copy of your insurance certificate is required for the individual dog as we will only accept dogs that have their own insurance. You will find further details listed in our T&C’s on application.

Yes but only with your permission and all treats are natural and organic.

We have been asked many times what does Ardanaiseig mean, well it’s a place, a majestic hotel now.Robert’s family roots are Scottish and Lock Awe area in Argyll is one of our favourites as a hidden gem within the Highland scenery.When walking with D’Arcy we found a house that was built for Colonel James Archibald Campbell of Clan Campbell in 1834 by renowned Scottish architect William Burn.When this home passed from the Campbell clan a condition of the sale was, the name could not be used. The new owner chose Ardanaiseig, the local Gaelic name,” the point by the ferry” which the house was located near and now a beautiful hotel

Ardanaiseig seems to hang heavy with Celtic myths and memories and the official version which the locals if you ever get the chance do love to tell however, the area ensures a near catatonic state of über relaxation, for the hyperactive and perfect for a Vizsla home boarding. This is why we chose this for our Vizsla kennel club name andthe name for our business.

The origins of this name are obscure. The eponymous ferry may have been the one at the nearby village of Tervine, which is known to have existed for many centuries.

Aird an Aiseig, is Gaelic for ,” the point by the ferry” pronounced we believe, Ar-dan-as-sey
