  • How do you ensure all the dogs get along?
    For the safety of all dogs in our care and staff, we are extremely strict and only accept social well-mannered pooches. We operate a 3 step screening process. Step 1: Book an initial consultation with us. All initial consultations are held at our daycare centre so we can have a cuppa and a chat about you, your dog! We will discuss how we can help you and complete all necessary paperwork and book your dog in for a trial day with us. Step 2: Your dogs trial day! During the trial day, we look at how your dog interacts with the other dogs with food, toys and play. After your dogs successful trial day, they'll move onto a closely monitored trial month. Step 3: Trial month, during this time we get to know your dog, build bonds and ensure their day is tailored to their specific requirements. We have different areas at daycare to suit dogs of all ages and abilities. **We do not take on any dogs with a history of aggression in any form.
