Sampenny Kennels

About The Owners

Glenys ensures that her team really lives up to their motto ” we treat your pets as our own”


Glenys and her late husband Robert ‘Bob’ Laidler purchased Sampenny Kennels & Cattery over twenty years ago and ran it together as a family business. Sampenny Kennels was a passion for Bob and he loved the pets he cared for and treated them as his own. Customers were always greeted by a smiling, friendly welcome from Bob and knew that their pets were in great hands. Continuing Bob’s legacy, his wife Glenys runs the kennels now with assistance from an amazing team who are a family within themselves, Graeme (Manager), Carla and Andy.

They welcome customers with the same friendly nature that customers have come to know and love from Bob and Glenys and are like family to Glenys. Together they have a genuine love of animals, putting a lot of time and interaction into all pets under their care, never just putting them in a cage and leaving them there.

About The Owners

Sampenny was the natural lifestyle change for Bob after a lifetime of working in the banking industry. His customers often consider him to be sort of a “dog whisperer” because of the way their pets responded to him.

Bob’s memory lives on, with Glenys, Graeme and the rest of the team providing the same high level care and ‘dog whispering’ that customers and their pets enjoy with every visit to Sampenny Kennels & Cattery.

Sampenny Kennels

Part of the Community

Along with running the business, Bob was a member of the Sunbury Rotary for twenty-eight years as well as being a past president. Bob and Glenys took a lot of pride in local issues, always involving themselves in bettering the community.

The whole team find it very rewarding working amongst their furry and sometimes feathered guests. When you love animals as much as this team does, it doesn’t feel like work at all and your furry and feathered family members will feel that love and attention from the team.​ Sampenny Kennels & Cattery further support the local community by employing casual staff during the peak seasons and all staff are trained to have the same work ethics and must be animal lovers!

So grateful to Sampenny Kennels, you accommodated us so amazingly in an emergency situation. As an assistance dog in training I was always very hesitant to use a kennel, and I have extremely fussy standards about how and who my dog is cared for by; but you cared for Maya in such a loving way and made sure that we had all her needs met and regular photo updates for me whilst in hospital and that she wouldn’t have any detrimental effects on her training. Maya had such a great time too that I know she will be happy going back when needed. 100% recommend and we will see you again soon.

My Spoodle Luci spent two nights at Sampenny in March. She is around 10 months old and it was her first time staying at a kennels. My husband and I were worried about how she would go, but it turns out we had nothing to worry about. Sampenny took excellent care of our fur baby. When we picked her up her tail was wagging and she was happily going up to the staff for a pat and belly rub. We will happily take Luci back to Sampenny for any other times we will be away and need someone to look after our girl. Thank you Sampenny.

Easy to deal with and the best rates around the area, save yourself time and stress as I did. This facility is generously designed to allow room for you to "swing a cat" it's huge and so easy to move things in with trolley provided etc. I've been with other storage companies and this one is the best all round

Was fantastic! They took great care of my dog; made sure she had her medicine and was kept nice and cool in the middle of summer. Pretty sure she came home with more weight on her too - definitely fed well and looked after.

Management response to ‘Mel’ review posted on 7 January 2024. Mel states that within having the dog home for an hour it had explosive diarrhoea. Unfortunately Mel decided not to speak to us at all about this. The animals we care for are our utmost priority as we are animal lovers hence establishing this business. We take any issues, particularly with animal health very seriously and it is very unfortunate that this person chose not to even make contact with us. We only serve animals in our care high quality food and provide them with the highest level of care. This is evident and can be seen in all of our positive reviews from our many satisfied and repeat customers. The behaviour of Mel is disappointing but unfortunately this occurs from time to time in a customer service business. We believe if there really were issues, they would have made further contact with us which we of course would have responded to as required. We note that the dog was only unwell in their care and not ours. Sampenny Management.

Stayed here for a couple of weeks, barking at the passing plane, making new doggy friends, having a very nice time with these very nice people.

Chocolate loved his stay, happy to take him back. The children are happy to know where he is too. So it takes the stress out of finding a Chocolate a holiday too. Chocolate will be back

Napoleon had a ball, when I came to pick him up he was running back and forth jumping on me and Bobbi, great sign that he was taken care of.
