WINTER draws on and along with the aroma of damp dogs, that smell as if they have been rolling in mushrooms, there are the delights of sore winter paws, chapped hands and spotty bellies – one would hope the spots were restricted to canine tummies of course! A grooming enterprise which knows all about the perils of winter is Vita Canis in Uttoxeter. Jitka Krizova LCGI is at the helm ably assisted by Klaudia Szonyi and partner John Averis, Pawscar ‘Exhibitor of the Year’ and of Saredon fame.

What People Say...

We are frequent visitors to Vita Canis dog boarding kennels in Uttoxeter. That is my Glen of Imaal Terrier and my brothers Staffordshire Bull Terrier. After a long journey and passing many other kennels, both dogs cannot wait to arrive. And they are very reluctant to leave!

Rachel is the most carrying and very sensitive to the needs of each individual dog.

I have no hesitation to recommend my dog-loving friends to use the Vita Cania boarding kennel in Uttoxeter. And none have ever been disappointed, that is neither the owners nor dogs.
