Les Creature Comforts was opened by Stephanie and her late husband Bob in 2008. Both having worked extensively with all types of domestic and farm animals running a boarding kennels and cattery seemed like a natural progression.
Their goal was that Les Creature Comforts would meet UK standards and to achieve this they commissioned the project of design and build to Sherlocks of Chichester. The company specializes in this area working for the Military and Police Services providing housing for working dogs as well as bespoke projects for private individuals. Stephanie’s experience of working in UK approved establishments enabled them to be confident that all standards of care, cleanliness and hygiene met with the highest of levels.
Today the kennels and cattery are run by Stephanie and her husband David. They strive to meet the needs of all their guests without compromise. With just 7 kennels and 10 cat chalets it means they are able to spend quality time with each individual getting to know them.
As well as caring for their guests they also look after their large family of rescue and rehomed animals. The family include their Setter ‘Bobby Holiday’ rescued in France , 2 Catalan Sheepdogs ‘Nora Bone’ rehomed from a rescue in the UK and ‘Ronnie Barker’ rehomed from a rescue in Turkey. They also have Millie the Minx, a Sphynx cat bred in Latvia and then rehomed to them at 7 months when the UK owners lost interest, Billy Ninja a French Blue from a French rescue and Dottie Dot Dash a British Blue they had from a kitten.
Stephanie is passionate about horses and to this end they have 2 rehomed ex racehorses, Borodino and Petrus and 2 rescue Shetland ponies ZeeZee and Ozzy both of whom were found in appalling circumstances. Life is pretty busy at Les Creature Comforts.
