Julie & Mike have owned Crosslands since 2001. They made many modifications to the existing kennel block including new roofing, new exterior walls in the kennel runs, improved heating system, new isolation kennels and new perimeter fencing. They also landscaped the paddock areas and created car parking facilities for the customers.
In 2009 they decided to expand and build an extension to the existing kennels to include 11 new kennels and a brand new grooming parlour. Along with the new extension block, Crosslands Hydrotherapy Centre was established in 2009. Prior to opening the centre, Mike & Julie both completed accredited courses at the Hawksmoor Hydrotherapy training centre, gaining a certificate in Hydrotherapy.
Mike & Julie currently own 2 Golden Retrievers – Freya and Faith they have recently acquired a Newfoundland puppy ‘Isla’.

Sarah joined Crosslands in 2004. She has completed accredited courses at Hawksmoor and gained a certificate in Canine Hydrotherapy. As grooming supervisor, Sarah divides her time between the hydrotherapy centre and the grooming parlour.
