A. Vaccinations MUST be up to date and a certificate presented as proof before boarding commences. The certificate MUST remain on the premises for the duration of your dogs stay. Currently, your dog does not need to be vaccinated against Kennel Cough. We ask that your dog has been treated for worms and fleas two weeks prior to boarding.

Q. Does my dog need to be microchipped?
A. YES! All the dogs we look after have very responsible owners and their dogs are all microchipped. Each time a dog comes to stay with us we scan the dog to make sure the chip is still working as it should be. As the new microchipping law is coming in to force April 2016 we will now ask that not only are all the dogs microchipped but we will also need to ensure their details are up to date and registered with a microchip database. When your pet was microchipped you may have been given a registration form to send off to a national database such as Petlog, Anibase etc. In return you will have been sent a certificate of your dogs microchip number, including identification, pet and owners details. Each time you use our Dog Boarding Service you will now need to bring these details with you so we can check them before the service commences.

Q. Do you offer a discount for more than one dog?
A. Yes we do, please see our price list for further details.

Q. Can we meet you before we make a booking?
A. Yes, in fact we insist on it. Please call us to arrange a suitable time to meet so we can discuss any questions you may have.

Q. Does my dog need to wear a collar when boarding?

A. Yes, as part of our licensing agreement set by the Local Authority you dog must wear a collar at all times with one of our identity tags.

Q. Do you look after aggressive dogs?
A. No. We do not accept dogs with any aggressive tendencies or that are not house trained, or incontinent, or that are likely to chew furniture, or dogs that are boisterous or not under control. We do NOT offer a service for banned breeds including Pit Bull Terrier, Dogo Argentino, Fila Braziliero, Japanese Tosa, American Pit Bull type/cross breed dogs. We do NOT offer a service for dogs registered under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 or Dog Hybrids registered under the Dangerous Wild Animal Act 1976.

Q. Do you board dogs that are not spayed/neutered?
A. Sorry but we do not board any female or males dogs over the age of 9 months that have not been neutered or spayed, or bitches in season. While an un-neutered dog may be completely docile and non aggressive by itself, they cannot control the effect their scent has on other dogs in our home.
