Whether you would like your dog to be looked after for just one day a week or while you go abroad for a couple of months, we can help with our home from home set up and sensory facilities. We promote balanced interactions and social etiquette in a calm, controlled and fun way. Our blend of appropriate physical exercise, mental stimulation, active play, emotional bonding and rest, encourages dogs to be a ‘pawsitive influence’ when in each other’s company. We are also able to support owners by maintaining consistency with house training, handling and core relationship needs.
Our knowledge, experience and understanding of dogs guarantees they will return home feeling calm and relaxed having had a balanced, stimulating stay, not feeling exhausted due to over-exertion.
Of significance, is that our expertise isn’t to be confused with rehabilitation services and thorough assessment of dogs determines their suitability to stay with us. We are passionate about working in unison with dog owners to provide the best possible continuity of Care. Therefore, it is vital that responsibility is taken by all parties regarding ongoing consistency, communication and feedback.
To ensure the comfort, safety and well-being of all dogs, as well as personnel, constant monitoring and assessment strategies are in place. If at any time, the temperament or behaviour of a dog gives us cause for concern, we will endeavour to work things through with family contacts even if it is not appropriate for the dog to continue staying with us.
Within 4 acres of secure, private woodland in Surrey and a cosy home environment. For overnight stays, dogs live as part of our family.
Monday to Friday, collection is between 09:30 - 10:30 and drop off is between 15:30 - 16:30. Overnight stays including weekends can be arranged any time and also include pick up and drop off.
First, we stroll around the land and explore the sensory garden which is designed such that sight, sound, smell, taste and touch opportunities are forever changing for optimal engagement.
Weather permitting we stay outside for games, training practice, agility and sun bathing or if needed we retire to our cosy converted stables for play and cuddles.
Rest is next on the agenda followed by a mentally stimulating lunch, then rest again to let the meals go down before we return outside.
Family support is provided with house training, vehicle control, loose lead walking, recall, play, tricks, food manners, settling, well-mannered life skills and social etiquette.
We have shower and bathing facilities if needed for any mucky pups and all dogs are groomed before we leave to return dogs between 15:30 - 16:30.
