Hertfordshire couple are in the dog house

HAVING spent much of their lives running a smallholding, husband and wife Bruce and Esther Carley are pretty used to looking after animals.

And looking after dogs, especially, seems to run in the family.

Esther’s father, Terry Trevis, used to train greyhounds at a two-acre facility off Poplars Green, close to WGC, and it’s this same unit that has now reopened as Mimram Kennels for dogs.

As well as offering a collection and delivery service, each canine visitor is provided with a heated kennel with individual run, bed and bedding, with access to two one-acre grass paddocks providing various toys, balls and tunnels to play with.

Any pooch that fancies a paddle can take advantage of the heated indoor swimming pool also on site – where Terry, still very much a part of the new venture, used to exercise his hounds.

In addition, the more outgoing dog can be taken for picturesque off-site walks alongside the nearby Mimram River.

There are also facilities for smaller pets such as rabbits and guinea pigs to stay as well.

“Bruce and I love animals, we’re animal people” said Esther, 32. “We own a smallholding in Tewin with sheep, pigs, geese, chickens, ducks, bees – and dogs of course.

“It [Mimram Kennels] is in a really picturesque spot, there’s no neighbours, and it was an ideal opportunity to open kennels.”
