Visiting & inspections

We positively encourage all new customers to spend some time looking around and asking any questions you may have. If this is the first time you have needed pet boarding we recommend you try to visit all the boarding premises you are interested in on the same day. Though costs are important, other factors such as security, cleanliness and trust will figure more highly with most pet owners. You will get a 'feeling' which place is right for you and your pet.

For dog owners, we strongly recommend (actually, insist) that your dog comes for a visit before their first stay. Apart from allowing us to assess your dog's needs, they will see you and us talking and gain trust from that, they will remember that they have been here, and will know that they go back home again. This simple act works amazingly well, with first-time boarders settling far more quicky if they have visited before their stay.

We are open for visits every day, and you do not need to ring to make an appointment. Because we are busiest first thing and again later in the afternoon, we do ask that visits be between 10:00 and 15:00 – this will allow us to spend more time with you and your dog.

Please remember that you will need to bring a valid vaccination certificate for the show-round.
