About Us

Stainthwaite Staff


We thought you might like to know a little about us!!


Kathleen Cassie has owned Stainthwaite Boarding Kennels for over 10 years now, she has many years’ experience with the large breed Newfoundlands and currently has two of the beauties living at home!  Kath has recently taken more of a back seat or semi-retirement so that she has more time and energy to give to her family, you will still see her however as she loves nothing more than coming to say ‘hello’ to customers old and new.


Jude Chamberlain is the manager here at Stainthwaite, she has more than 30 years’ worth of  experience with dogs of all breeds and believes passionately about their care both physically and mentally, you can usually find her in a kennel making sure the resident is happy and having cuddles!


Andrea Duxbury is Jude’s right hand woman, she’s been with us almost a year now and has taken to it like a duck to water! Andrea has her own dog too who comes into kennels to play. Andrea was the landlady of the local ‘Cross Gaits’ Inn for many years so you may recognise her from there.


We also have Janet Matthews and Sue Hemingway who are invaluable to the smooth running of the kennels.
