This is extremely popular so early booking is strongly advised.
A boarding service for dogs that will be cared for in the warmth of our family home. If you are looking for someone to care for your dog while you are away on holiday then this service is for you. Your dog will be welcomed in to our home and be treated like one of the family. We like to give them the attention they deserve so we only board one dog at a time or two from the same family.
Before any booking is confirmed, we will arrange a suitable time for us to meet, this will also give you the opportunity to meet my dogs, Sammy & Harvey. You will be invited to our home so the dogs can get to know each other and for you to see where your dog will be staying. Prior to your dog’s stay with us, further visits will be arranged to help your dog get used to their new surroundings. This is extremely helpful and makes it easier for your dog to settle in here.
Once you are happy you will then be required to complete some paperwork detailing everything we need to know about your dog. To secure your booking a 25% non-returnable deposit is required with this service which will be deducted from your bill.
All we ask is that all vaccinations MUST be up to date and a certificate presented as proof before boarding commences. Dogs must also be treated for worms and fleas at least two weeks prior to boarding. Your dog must be friendly towards other pets and humans. Owners are also required to supply all the equipment, medication, food and bedding etc.
Sorry but we do not board any un-castrated male dogs over the age of 9 months or bitches in season.
Dog Sitting – Home Visits
We will look after your dog in your own home. They will be given tender loving care and be treated just as if they were a member of our own family. If you are out at work or away from home for whatever reason Day Care is an alternative for your dog who may not happy being left alone for long periods of time. With a minimum of a 50 minute long visit together with plenty of love and attention, you can have peace of mind knowing that your dog is enjoying having company while you are away. Dogs require physical and mental stimulation and many behaviour problems such as barking and chewing can be the result of isolation and boredom. Mental stimulation and company will ensure your dog is content and happy.
Our Dog Walking service is designed for those owners who may be out at work all day, are unexpectedly called away from home, are elderly, hospitalised or have other commitments. Dogs will receive exercise by going for a nice walk, play, fun and interaction. Your dog will be taken back home, tired and content. Sometimes we may walk in groups and it is therefore imperative that your dog does not show aggression to other dogs and must be friendly towards humans.
Cat Sitting and Feeding
Our Cat Sitting and Feeding service is a perfect alternative to cattery boarding or asking friends and neighbours. Cats in particular are known to be less stressed in their own environment and will prefer staying in their own home. A standard visit lasts up to 30 minutes working fully to your requirements. We will give them lots of love and attention and feed them if required.
Puppy Care – Home Visits
The first few months of a puppy’s life are the most important and ideally the puppy should be exposed to a broad range of experiences, noises, animals, traffic, people, children etc as soon as possible. Young dogs can overcome situations very quickly if are met with these experiences on a daily basis. A well-socialised puppy is more likely to be confident and very sociable. Daily visits can also help with being house trained and other training which a puppy needs. We can visit your puppy for feeding, playtime, toilet breaks and socialisation. When your puppy has had its full vaccinations, making use of our Dog Walking Service will enable your puppy to get used to the big wide world.
We are not qualified Vets but we are able to give your pets oral medication, worming or flea treatment (which owners must supply). We can also follow special diet or food requirements if need be.
You may prefer to use our Pet Taxi Service if you do not have time to take your pet where it needs to go. You may not drive and taxis can be quite expensive and the drivers can be reluctant to carry pets in their vehicles. We provide a pet transport service where we can take your pet to and from the vets. We can represent you at the vets and provide you with a report of their instructions. We can also take and collect your pet from the groomers.
