I f you’re anything like us, you probably spend your time with your dog glued to your side and being involved in every move you make! Or maybe you decided (also like us!) that it might be a good time to have a new puppy and are now worrying about leaving them home alone when you go to work? We may just have the solution – we are very pleased to now open for doggy day care.


There is a member of staff present at all times throughout the day, and all dogs have lots of interaction with us, either playing with toys or just having cuddle times. Our facilities allow us to give each dog or family of dogs their own room for rest times and then have playtimes outside in our all weather playpens, either individually or socialising in small groups ( with owners consent ) we also have 2 sofa’s in our reception room for the more leisurely guests!


Less Sociable Dogs

Our facilities also allow us to provide day care for dogs who maybe more reactive towards other dogs , by giving them their own secure , comfortable room as a base with plenty of time out in our playpen with us and lots of toys. These dogs would normally be excluded from the traditional day care facilities where they tend to run one large group of dogs together.



We accept puppies over 3 months of age, so long as they have had a full course of vaccinations, including kennel cough. We will arrange how their day is managed with the individual owners. Puppies food will need to be supplied to provide continuity in their diet.


The Social Distancing Bit

Upon arrival , follow the signs around the back of the building to our playpens. Take your dog(s) into the first pen, remove their lead and leave the dog in the playpen, taking your lead with you, and we will take them in from there. When collecting , telephone us from your vehicle when you arrive, we will take your dog into the playpen for you to collect from there. If when you arrive there is a person collecting their dog please wait in your car until they have left the premises.

We charge £18 per dog per day – additional dogs (from the same family) sharing a room, charged at £10 each.
