Useful information

Our unique pet boarding facilities offer your pets the chance to have a holiday too.

The Rovers Return Inn Boutique Dog Hotel

Dogs have their own Suite & Play area sheltered from the weather elements. The Suites are acclimatized, fully tiled and  insulated, with a fan for the warmer days too, it also has a large bench/bed the size of a ” human single bed” raised 10cm off the ground for your pets’ comfort; we also provide all the soft clean bedding.

The play area has a water sprinkler system for the warmer days with its own toy box & relaxing pet music playing all day in the background.

Some of the play areas also have a ” doggy” plunge pool for the summer months.

Our Rovers Return Inn is set in a mature Orange Grove. It is not a conventional kennel at all. For your pets’ holiday we provide playtime’s, interaction, socialisation as well as one to one care.

We specialise in giving your dog a holiday suited to them. Dogs have a huge playground in which they can “free run” after the mornings breakfast and we continue to rotate the pets into the playground all day.

The Sensory Garden /Playground called the Red Wreck has been created to stimulate the canine instincts and build their confidence as well as to tantalise all their senses. Our sensory garden plans to encourages dogs to interact with their surroundings and provide physical and mental challenges helping dogs de-stress and enriching their lives.

The garden not only has a digging sand pit for treats & rewards, there are ramps, different textured pathway, a sundeck, water feature, crazy daisies, illusion mirrors & play area. Different things will be popular with different pets.

We also have in the sensory garden plants such as:

Lavender: Known to encourage scar tissue regeneration

Marigold: Often selected by animals experiencing grief or emotional distress

Peppermint: Good for its cooling properties and often selected by animals with skin irritation. As it can be offered as an aid for training

Valerian: Often selected by anxious dogs for its calming effect

Wheat Grass: Animals who are nervous, anxious, and exhibit hyper behaviours often select wheat grass.

Lemon Balm : Eases anxiety & kills viruses.

Lemon Geranium: Mosquito Repellent, ideal for our climate here in Spain.

Regularly photos of your pets on their holiday are posted on our FACEBOOK page POSH PETS SPAIN.

For clients that live some distance from us we can offer a licensed Pet Pick up & return service too.

  • Dogs require to wear their own collar and need to be up to date with worming & spot on treatments ( that needs to have been entered in their vaccination record book) to also include a sandfly preventative such as Vectra 3d or Advantix ideally to wear a Seresto or scalibor collar also.

    Please note: ( If Raining please think of our current residents as it is unfair for them to come out and say hello in the rain, please therefore come on an alternative day).

Protecting your dogs against the Sandfly & Leismaniosis

As we are as concerned as all our clients for the welfare of our pets with the threat of the leishmaniosis-transmitting sand fly species / mosquitoes, we ask that all dogs that stay with us must wear a white Scalibor/Seresto collar or be treated with a relevant spot on treatment such as advantix or Vectra 3d These can be purchased at Posh Pets Spain at very competitive prices.

In this modern day we have fitted ultrasonic mosquito repellents into our boarding area that help protect your pets not only in their sleeping chalets but also in their complete exercising areas/enclosures.

We have also planted Lemon Geraniums around the play areas. We have done this as the sand fly is at its most risk to pets during dusk & dawn when actually pets like to be exercised as it is the cooler time of day from June to September. Our ultrasonic repellents will actually cover a 15 metre radius around your pet at all times!! We have tried & tested these ourselves & found them very successful in the outside areas that we & our pets occupy at night.

We also provide benches & doggy sun beds to ensure that pets can stay off the ground when lying down which is where the sand fly likes to be.

Vaccinations, Vaccines & our requirements

For Dogs:

Routine vaccinations for dogs to protect against Parvovirus, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis and Distemper ( vets call this all in one vaccine the cocktail) Dogs are also require by law a yearly booster for rabies. If your dog has not been vaccinated before, then they cannot be boarded in kennels until 7-14 days after vaccination.

Kennel Cough: We do not ask that pets are given a vaccine for “canine cough/kennel cough” as the vaccines that are currently available from your vets only cover one strain of the cough. It is not a pleasant vaccine & believe it or not but your vet will confirm that there are at least 25 different strains and the vaccine only covers one strain. Canine cough is similar to the human flu & to be honest there is more chance of your pets catching the virus at your own vets than with us as our pet facilities have plenty of space. We are proud to say we fortunately have never had the virus here.

For Cats:

Most vaccine combinations protect against Cat Flu (Feline Herpes and Feline Calicivirus) and Feline Infectious Enteritis (Feline Panleucopenia). Your cat may also be protected against Chlamydia and Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV), otherwise you can arrange these vaccinations separately. A vaccination is also available for Bordetella Bronchiseptica another respiratory infection . Cats also by law in Spain require a yearly booster for rabies. All vaccinations require annual boosters and cats should not be boarded until two weeks after vaccination.

For Rabbits:

Rabbits should be vaccinated routinely, but particularly before boarding, against Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD). The two vaccinations should be given at least two weeks apart, with the last vaccine at least two weeks prior to boarding. The Myxomatosis requires six monthly boosters and VHD annual boosters.

      Testimonials

      Client: Taja West

      These are two separate reviews from our cats stay in December and his second stay which also included our new dog in March this year.

      December 2018- We just picked-up our cat Sherbert from Posh Pets this afternoon and are extremely thankful we found this cattery/kennel. The staff and facilities were incredible and Sherbert came home very content, even after 2.5 weeks apart. It really set our mind at ease seeing the photo updates on Facebook each week. You can tell that Posh Pets really cares about making the pets and owners feel comfortable. This cattery was about 2 hours from our home and definitely worth the drive!

      Client: Taja West

      March 2019- Just wanted to add to my review since December as we recently rescued a dog and she stayed with Posh Pets for the first time this week. I cannot say enough AMAZING things about Posh Pets. Our dog was still recovering from her spay and they paid careful attention to her incision to make sure it healed properly. They also did a fantastic job grooming her (her first time) and integrating her into the garden with the other dogs. Her confidence was really boosted during this stay and my husband and I cannot thank you enough! So grateful for their beautiful cattery as well (much better than any other facility we’ve seen in Spain and just like the one we used in the U.K. if not better). I trust Posh Pets wholeheartedly with my kiddos!!

      Client: Emily O'Brien

      We needed to book our lurcher, Bambi, in with Posh Pets Spain at very late notice due to a family emergency. From the very beginning they were absolutely fantastic. They went above and beyond to make sure we were able to drop off Bambi and make our flight home. It meant the world to us knowing that we didn’t have to worry about her, and they’d take the best care of Bambi.

      And they did! Bambi goes to kennels a few times a year and never have we had her come back so happy and healthy. The facilities were brilliant and the team kept us up to date with pictures and videos of our girl having an absolute ball playing with the other doggies in the sensory garden.

      I very highly recommend Posh Pets Spain.

      Client: Nicola Jayne Bryan

      Absolutely wonderful service! Cannot fault them! First time staying somewhere without family and Reggie and Cottie loved it, it was so wonderful to get the email update and photo of them having fun and making friends and then to see the video and photos of them on Facebook really reassured us! We missed them more then they missed us as they had so much fun! And Cottie had the full spa treatment and looked beautiful when we picked them up! Reasonable costs too for everything! I can certainly say I would recommend them to everyone even those that are very nervous about leaving their pets like me-they are so kind and wonderful! The doggies will love to return and we will be able to have a few more short breaks now knowing they are so well looked after! Thank you so much xx

      Client: Martin Smith

      I live alone here in Spain with my little man ( A French bulldog). He is very precious to me and so leaving him when I travel was a scary time for me. Until I found Posh Pets! The team are simply brilliant and totally dedicated to providing your precious little people with a wonderful holiday while you are away! My little man always comes home better for his holiday away from dad, and all of my anxieties about leaving him are gone! If you love your little people then don’t think of any other place while you are away – Posh pets will ensure that they have a fantastic holiday in safe, experienced and passionate hands – if you have just found Posh pets on google, then look no further! you have the answer right here! Martin & Buddy.

      Client: John Scudamore

      Just collected our tribe from Posh Pets Spain. As always they look healthy and happy and neater and tidier than when they went in. I can’t recommend them highly enough- a really professional outfit. When they are in for a longer stay we get regular updates with photos of them enjoying themselves ( usually in the sensory garden). Our golden retrievers like the sun-loungers or the paddling pool in equal measure. The French Bulldogs are just happy racing around. It’s just so comforting being away on holiday and knowing your pets are being cared for professionally.

      Client: Chris Noon

      Highly Recommended!

      I took my 2 cats here for 10 weeks while my house was getting refurbished and I couldn’t have asked for more. Spacious rooms, entertainment and constant care and attention. I even asked for a 2 week extension due to delays on the refurbishment and Posh Pets where able to help even through a very business Christmas season.

      I cannot see myself using any other Pet Hotel in the future as this place is perfect and well worth the 45 minute drive from Gibraltar.

      N.B. They also look after all size dogs with grooming and training if needed.

      Client: Cheryl Burns

      Pleased to have found such a great ‘holiday home’ for our cat Louie.
      Friendly staff and good facilities. Each cat has a large enclosure with plenty of places to doze/people watch at different levels….even music playing in the background!
      Louie was not at all stressed when he came home.
      Would definitely recommend this place.

      Client: Emma Jones

      Nothing is too much trouble for the guys here at Posh Pets. Our little rescue dog Arya loves going on her holidays and each time has come back happy and looking super cute after her groom! We get lots of pictures and updates and Jas and Rachel have given us lots of great advice and recommendations too! We know she is really well looked after and she loves them both! Thank you for all of your help!
