The Dog Crèche Is for dogs who enjoy the company of other dogs, so 'on own' periods between the dog walker calling and when you come home are non-existent.

The dogs are in our home, with all the ensuing comforts. There is a completely secure garden, plenty of toys to play with, and comfy chairs for when they want a rest. They will have constant company, both human and fellow canine, lovely walks, and plenty of fun. As they are always supervised we can ensure that each dog is happy. The pups and young dogs love to play for most of the day, but obviously the older dog will need a rest after a good walk, so we make sure they get some peace and quiet.

By the time you collect them they will have been walked, brushed and had a good days play, so all you need to do after a hard days work is take them home and feed them, and you should get a peaceful evening!

I feel it is so important for dogs to learn to socialize and that's where The Dog Crèche can help. By being with their friends all day, they learn to share toys etc., interact well, and though we don't have strict rules here we do like to see good manners.

If you are enjoying a holiday in Dorset with your dog, you may find there are places to visit in and around Bournemouth where your dog is not welcome or the weather is particularly hot and you do not wish to worry about your pet being uncomfortable. Early booking is advisable as during the summer months we can become very busy.

Our dogs are driven to the forest where they are then allowed off the lead (or on lead if you are unsure if they will return). All dogs will wear a tag with our mobile phone number. As dogs are pack animals and tend to stay together, this often helps with recall training for puppies going 'off lead' for the first time.

Our hours are 7.30am to 6pm. Drop off time is between 7.30am and 9am, and collection anytime between 4pm & 6pm.

I am licensed by Bournemouth Council Premises Licence No AAL 89699, and inspected by them. In fact The Dog Crèche was the first day care for dogs to be licensed in this area. You may have seen us featured on Meridian TV some years ago as it was such a novel concept. We like to think we are the original and best. We are also fully insured.

If my veterinary training can be of any use to you i.e.. administering medication, advice etc. please do not hesitate to ask.
