Q. My pets vaccination is due while we are away... When shall I get their vaccination done?

Q. Can my friend or relative come & visit my pet whilst I am away?
A. I'm afraid not. It can upset their routine while they are with us. If you are away for more than 2 weeks we will with your permission take them off site for a lead walk, as well as exercising them in our paddock.
Q. What if my pet is not settling in?
A. In the very rare case that we are unable to do anything with your pet to settle them into their environment, & we have serious concerns over their wellbeing, we would get in touch with your emergency contact.
Q. My pet is very nervous. How do you deal with nervous animals?
A. We are always very grateful if you can inform us at the time of booking if your pet is a tad nervous, so that we can have a suitable/ quiet kennel ready for them. Also we would suggest an overnight stay for them so that they can meet us & experience our daily routine, also a short overnight stay ensures them that mum & dad are coming back for them. We never force your pet into greeting us, its all about gaining trust & letting them come to us when they are ready.
Q. What vaccinations does my pet require?
A. Their normal yearly vaccination booster is always required..
Kennel Cough Vaccine is not a requirement, however if you want your dog to have it it must be administered 2 weeks prior to boarding... full info on the vaccinations page.
