Doggy Day Care
Doggy Day Care is either a full day or a half day.
Not all dogs are suitable for this service so please read the information carefully below
If you know you're having a long day at work or you'd prefer your dog to have company throughout the day, they can spend the day with us at Lakeland Dog Walker.
Your dog will be with us all day and will receive a minimum of four hours walk, spread across the day (Full Day).
Doggy Day Care gives the opportunity for dogs to form and interact as part of a pack. For younger dogs this is important training as the benefits of merely socialising with others dogs are invaluable.
Bringing your dog to Doggy Day Care also helps dogs with lots of energy by giving an outlet to release all of the built up energy they have inside them, so when they go home they are chilled and relaxed.
Their day will involve on-lead walking, off-lead walking, play time and rest time (for the dog walker and the dogs!)
We have up to 6 dogs per Dog Walker, so your dog will make plenty of four-legged friends!
At the end of the day, your dog will be towel dried and dropped back to your house (if we can use your hose pipe before dropping your dogs off, that would be great as they do like to get muddy when with us)
