Our Location

Our convenient central location...

Welcome to Dog and Bone!

Dog and Bone welcomes you, your family and your pets to our kennels and cattery on the edge of Ballymahon, in the beautiful County of Longford.

We are just down the road from Centre Parcs too and regularly provide kennelling if the dog lodges are full – give us a call, even last minute and we can look after your pets while you are on holiday.

Thank you to all our recent furry visitors for their assistance in putting together a set of gorgeous pictures for you to enjoy – and lovely testimonials from their owners!

We have an active Facebook page that we keep up to date with all daily photos and videos. And a recently developed Instagram page.

Thank you
Alison, Steve and Kate
