What to bring

Up to date Vaccination Certificate (first time)
Named dog blanket (first time)
Own food (only if on special diet)
Medication (if required)
All dogs must be on leads when they arrive and depart please.

We can keep daycare leads here but we try to swap boarding dogs onto our leads at the gate and return your lead to you so we don’t have any mix ups.
We prefer all dogs to wear collars while they are here and name tags if possible.
You do not need to bring food bowls or water bowls.


Your dog must have had vaccinations within the last 12 months, but not less than 7 days before admission, for the following:

DHP - Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus
Kennel Cough Complex - (3 days before admission)
Leptospirosis - Optional

New Dogs

Please check with your veterinary practice if your dog has definitely had the kennel cough vaccination, as this is often not given with annual vaccinations  unless  specified. If in doubt ring your vet clinic for confirmation.

Main food supplied is Royal Canin Dog Biscuits, we also give a small amount of quality wet food which is mixed with the dog biscuits for the evening meal.

It is much easier for us to feed our own biscuits. If you think your dog will be fine on our Royal Canin biscuits please don’t bring yours. Also your dog may enjoy a little change anyway.

Dogs are fed twice a day.

Special Diets

We are able to feed dogs with food provided if you prefer. This does not alter the price per day. Please only bring the approximate amount needed for your dogs stay and in a named, sealed container rather than a bag if possible.

Raw Food

Please name all bags and containers. Also please provide a named defrosting container with amounts for feeding noted.


We are able to administer medication including pills, liquids and injections.

Please ensure any medication is labeled with dogs name and amounts of medication needed.

Please provide any information to us of things we need to be aware of or concerned about.
