Holistic Day Care
Looking after your dog's Mental, Physical, Emotional and Social Needs
Playing and exploring our indoor activity hall
and our outdoor garden.
Like us, some dogs enjoy being in a large group, and some prefer one or two well matched friends so we ensure we group them taking this into account.
They enjoy the daily activities we do with them
This can include physical needs such as brushing, nail clipping, canine conditioning exercises and regular weight checks.
Mental needs such as enrichment activities, trick training and basic obedience exercises.
Social and Emotional needs giving the dogs support to build their confidence with people and other dogs.
They can chill and enjoy some quiet time
As rest time is just as important for their mental and physical health as fun and exercise.
So they go home content and relaxed
Day care for the days you are working long hours, for the times you may not be fit to exercise your dog, for the dogs that are bored or need to have fun with friends. What ever your reason its important your know that your dog is in a safe and secure setting that has been designed with them in mind. In current times its also a good way to socialise your lockdown pup and to help work on any separation anxiety that they may have developed if you have been home long term. In the reasuring knowledge that staff caring for them are dedicated, enthusiastic, trained in dog first aid, training and behaviour. That their timetable with us includes rest times as well as fun activities as a group and some individual time spent doing the things they enjoy and need such as enrichment activities and being brushed.
Core activity times for full day dogs are 9am-12md and 2pm-5pm. Dogs may be dropped off from 8am (7am by arrangement) and must be collected by 6pm. Full days start at £25 for one day with a block of 4 sessions with one free for £100 (taking each day to £20) blocks must be used within 5 weeks of purchase and may be used a minimum of 1 session per week. Day care is open Monday to Friday. Half Day mornings run to 1pm and half day afternoons start at 1pm and these cost £15 per session or buy a block of 4 with one free for £60 making each session £12 with the same conditions for use as for the full days.
To organise day care for your dog just get in touch. We will arrange for an initial visit for you to look around, get to know us and ask any questions. At the same time we will start building a bond with your dog. We will then get you to complete our online registration form and upload a copy of your dogs vaccination certificate. (we do not accept homeopathic alternatives but will accept a vets titre test results showing immunity).
We will then book your dog in for an initial 1 hour session where your leave them to allow us to assess your dogs interaction with others and see how comfortable they are with us and in a group setting. If they have enjoyed the hour we will then book them for a half days day care. All being well they can then be scheduled onto the days you need. For safety and insurance purposes we cannot allow owners in the activity area while day care is open but you can watch your dog from the office area windows to see how they are doing on your return for them. Guidelines are that dogs should attend regualrly at least one half day per week to allow them to settle and bond with staff and other attendees. Dogs who need more time will continue on short visits for a short period to see if we can help them become more comfortable however not all dogs are going to enjoy a group setting and in a few cases we may recommend dog walking or other solutions for them.
Dogs over 1 year old either need to be neutered or have a letter from their vet giving a reason for the dog not being neutered until older (this may be large breeds maturing later/allowing the dog to mature fully mentally and physically or other valid reasons). We will also accept a vets letter that a dog has been chemically neutered if it states the period it should be effective for.
There are also additional extras you can add to your package such as pick up and drop off, regular baths, nail trims, grooming, specific training required. Packages can totally bespoke.
