Houndsell Kennels is a small, family run, fully licenced and insured boarding kennels in Mark Cross, East Sussex. We have over 45 years experience looking after all types of animals, primarily horses and dogs. Houndsell Kennels developed out of 40 years experience in breeding pedigree German Shepherd dogs and caring for these dogs during their owners holidays .


Houndsell Kennels is set in 25 acres of beasutifull Sussex countryside and is frequently complimented on the quiet, relaxed atmosphere and how happy the animals are here.


Here at Houndsell Kennels your dog is our priority, we only have 9 kennels. This means we can ensure that every dog gets the individual attention and affection they require to make their stay with us relaxed and enjoyable. It is our aim that whilst you are away you can be assured that your dog is having a great time on their holiday with us. We are happy to keep you updated on your dogs stay via email or text message while you are away for added peace of mind.

"I have now used Houndsell Kennels a couple of times and would have no hesitation in recommending these well-run kennels that offer clean and spacious accommodation and where I know that my dog is well looked after. The proprietors are professional, friendly and caring. Happy dog, happy owner! "
