A History of Swillyvalley

SWILLYVALLEY WAS ESTABLISHED AS A PROFESSIONAL SHOW KENNELS IN 1975 BY MARY ANN ANDERSON.

 FOR OVER 50 YEARS MRS. ANDERSON WAS INVOLVED IN THE SHOWING, BREEDING, AND JUDGING OF DOGS AT NATIONAL & INTERNATIONAL LEVEL. 

SWILLYVALLEY HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN MANY DIFFERENT BREEDS OVER THE YEARS SUCH AS AUSTRALIAN SILKY TERRIERS, YORKSHIRE TERRIERS, IRISH WOLF HOUNDS, OTTERHOUNDS, BEAGLES, CHINESE CRESTED, MOST NOTABLY, NORWEGIAN ELKHOUNDS, AND MORE RECENTLY PORTUGESE PODENGOS.

            'SWILLYVALLEY' NORWEGIAN ELKHOUNDS ARE FAMOUS AROUND THE WORLD HAVING PRODUCED IN OUR BREEDING LINES, CRUFTS CHAMPIONS, IRISH, ENGLISH & INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONS.   

IN THE 1980'S THE SHOW KENNELS WERE EXTENDED TO OFFER BOARDING ACCOMMODATION TO THE PUBLIC AND  FROM THE 2000'S THE ADDITION OF A PURPOSE BUILT CATTERY.

SINCE 2010, THE RUNNING OF SWILLYVALLEY HAS BECOME A TEAM EFFORT, WITH MRS ANDERSONS DAUGHTER LESLEY TAKING THE REINS IN THE DAY TO DAY RUNNING OF SWILLYVALLEY AND THE CARE OF THE GUESTS. 

HERE AT SWILLYVALLEY WE PRIDE OURSELVES ON OUR SAFE, HYGIENIC AND SPACIOUS ACCOMMODATION, THE FRIENDLY WELCOME WITH WHICH WE RECEIVE ALL OUR 'HOLIDAYMAKERS', AND THE LOVE AND CARE WE GIVE EACH INDIVIDUAL PET. 

WE AIM TO PROVIDE YOUR PET WITH A 'HOME FROM HOME' DURING THEIR STAY, ENSURING THAT EACH GUEST RECEIVES AS MUCH CARE AND ATTENTION AS THEY DO FROM THEIR OWN 'FAMILY'!  WE HAVE MANY SATISFIED FRIENDS WHO RETURN TO US YEAR AFTER YEAR.
