Dog Day Care
We offer a day care service in Heathers home in Bathampton, Bath. Day care is a great way for your dog to get socialisation and lots of stimulation during the day whilst you are at work or out for a long day. When your dog is in our care for the day they got lots of exercise, enrichment and play time with other dogs. Your dog will be treated as if it is one of ours whilst they are with us and so rest assured that they are in safe hands. Dogs in day care get at least a one hour’s walk each day, they have access to the large garden and someone is on site with them 24 hours a day.
We make sure your dog has the highest level of care with us at a very competitive price. All dogs that come for day care have to come to our home for an induction to check they will fit in and are happy and also to let you come and meet us and our menagerie beforehand. All dogs must be fully vaccinated and up to date with worming and de-flead before they can use this service.
We also do lots of doggy day out day trips with dogs that are in day care, some of the places we visit are Westonbirt and Brean Beach, and your dog will be out for the whole day with us enjoying their time. We may be able to offer a pick up and drop off service at times; however this is not part of our standard service. Our drop off and pick up times are between 8am and 10am and between 3pm and 6pm. Sadly we do not take puppies in for our day care service, this is because a day care environment can over stimulate young puppies and impact their behaviour and welfare in turn.
We only walk a maximum of 6 dogs per person and so therefore we only offer a day care service to 6 customers at a time, we do get booked up very early and so you may be on a waiting list for some time if you needed this service. Your dog must be comfortable around multiple dogs to take full advantage of our day care service, this service is not used to modify a dog’s behaviour towards other dogs and all dogs that come to day care are temperament tested prior to staying.
