No… please bring your dogs usual food (& allowed treats) to cover the duration of their stay.
We will purchase the same food where possible and keep receipts for you to re-imburse us on your return.
We request that you bring your dogs own bed and blankets for their stay this is to give your dog their familiar home smells which helps them settle in easier at the start of their stay.
If you dog gets very muddy out playing/walking or rolls in that dreaded item known as FOX POO !!! Then we will bath your dog accordingly with suitable doggy friendly shampoo. If your dog has any shampoo allergies etc please advise on booking in form and please feel free to bring with you any special shampoo you use.
We do not operate a professional grooming facility on our premises. Although we do clean eyes,& brush coats to keep clean and tidy as necessary. However , we do work closely with a local Dog Groomer who will be able to pre-book a grooming appointment for your dog . Appointments fill up quickly so if you would like to use our associated Professional Dog Groomer whilst you are away please request this on booking in with us and we will advise prices accordingly.
We are a family home and at some points in the day this will be unavoidable ie: school runs, popping to the shops etc. This is always kept to a minimum and your dog will have our full attention during the day and evening. If your dog suffers from anxiety or distress being left alone, we will work around this in order to reduce their stress levels.
Only at your (owners) request. Please provide (or indicate on the booking form) any allowed treats that you dog is allowed or generally likes. Again please bring an allowed treat supply.
After owner discussion as indicated on the form—if this is an easily given medication such as, tablets , eye drops, creams etc.
We are not medically trained in medicine administration and will not give injections.
If your dog requires a weekly injection for any condition please indicate on booking. We will be more than happy to transport your dog to your usual Vet Clinic for administration of these.
We like to do a.m & p.m walks. But we try to keep to clients usual routine that suits each guest where possible.
If your dog needs medical attention from a vet.
Or if we go for a day-out to a different non-local park.
We use recommended harness & seat belt clips to secure dogs for travel (you can provide your own travel seat/attachment if you prefer).
Please advise on booking if your dog does not travel well in a car.
Dogs will be walked together where appropriate & if you have consented to this.
If your dog does not like to be walked with other dogs (or is reactive) please advise on booking.
Definitely - We do not take any bookings before a Meet & Greet has taken place.
This is so that you can meet us, see where your dog will be staying and of course meet our resident dogs. This sets minds at rest about where your dog will be staying and that the dogs get on together before you leave them in our care.
No - your dog will be looked after in our family home as part of our family.
