Boarding dogs may accompany me on my daily dog walking routes, receiving lots of socialisation and different areas to explore. 
If not joining the walking group, boarding dogs receive two walks a day, in the morning and evening with added enrichment and playtime in between.
All disinfectants we use are pet safe, covering virus and baterial control.   DAP collars and diffusers are available to help calm nervous dogs.  We have a microchip scanner on site should you require confirmation of chip ID (and confirmation it is still working).  We dehydrate our own pure cod dog treats, great for dogs with allergies!  We provide regular updates to owners letting them know how their dogs are settling in. and enjoying their holidays!
