About the Cardiff centre

Welcome to Dogs Trust Cardiff! We're a happy, friendly team and would love you to come and visit us at the centre to see our fantastic facilities and all the waggy tails of our doggy guests.

Everything at the centre has been designed with dogs in mind, from the fully equipped grooming suite, to each of its 74 kennels, with underfloor heating so that our dogs can be cosy or cool all year round. 

There’s plenty of room to play, with 20 exercise paddocks, and a specially landscaped area for practising lead walking. We also have an airy training hall, perfect for teaching dogs of any age new tricks!

Visiting us

By public transport:

Closest stations are Cardiff Central StationCardiff Queen Street or Cardiff Bay, which are all less than a ten-minute drive from the centre. Alternatively, take bus route 1 or 2 (grey).

By road:

Follow signs to Nettlefold Road and it's right at the end of the industrial estate - for use of sat nav, it's better to type in Nettlefold Road rather than the postcode.
