Doggy Day-care trial

Thinking about Day-Care?

90 minute trial with our handlers

All new dogs and/or dogs who have not been to us for 12 months of more are invited in for a 90 minute trial to ensure we are the right facility for your them. We observe your dog’s behaviour towards humans; use of a lead, temperament, and confidence in their surroundings.  Once we feel comfortable your dog is calm and happy, we slowly introduce some dogs, one at a time, building up to a small group where appropriate with the end goal being to integrate your dog into full group. 

30 minute Kennel trial

Once we have introduced your dog to some new friends and they have had a play, we then trial them into a kennel for approximately 30 minutes, again to ensure we are the right facility for your dog. 

We ask pawrents to leave their dogs with us for the full 90 minutes as this enables us to monitor behaviours as they would be when left with us for day-care.  When you come to collect, we will give you a full report of our observations and hopefully you will see for yourself that your dog has had fun and can’t wait to come back again soon. 

If we feel we are not the right facility for your furbaby, we will explain our reasons why but hope you will understand that we do not take these decisions lightly and will only take new dog clients if we feel your dog will be happy with us.  Day-care is not for everyone.  It is busy and loud and with doggo friends that are full on all the time.  With this in mind, we carefully personality match dogs for their groups but if we still feel it is too overwhelming for your dog, we will always let you know.  We would much rather your dog was happy and in the right environment for them. 

Arrange A Day-care Trial

Contact us to arrange a day-care trial for your dog. Our behaviourist can assess your dog and see how it gets on. Assessments are done by our behaviourist team Monday- Friday by arrangement only.

Our policy is that your dog is up to date with the annual boosters but having the Kennel Cough vaccine is not essential, if you choose to have this it must be at least 2 weeks before using our services. Vaccination card is required on appointment.
