what we need from you

  • Even though your dog will live with us in our home, they will still have contact with other dogs and therefore as responsible dog lovers we would require your dog to be fully booster vaccinated including a booster vaccines for kennel cough at least 10 days before their stay with us.  Copies of vaccination must be provided for our records on the day of arrival.
  • In order to prevent any stomach upset we would ask that you provide enough of your dogs usual diet for the duration of their stay.
  • Our 'Deluxe Doggy Holiday' - Home from Home Service can only be offered to those dogs and owners who have participated in one of our 'Dog Guru' dog training programmes.
  • Before coming to stay with us we would insist that your dog attends a free meet and greet and participates in one of our scheduled doggy day care days.  This allows us to get to know your dog on a more personal and intimate level before their stay with us.
