•Dogs are grouped depending on breed, age and play style, all our groups are mixed ages to ensure young dogs learn appropriate play and dog social skills from older mature dogs, this is not "socialisation" in the context of pet dogs, dog socialisation in the real word is complex and meeting other dogs is tiny percentage of this.

•Vaccinations are for your dogs own protection against common viruses, but they are not always 100% effective as virus strains mutate over time.

•We require that all dogs attending day care be on year round flea and worm prevention, either natural or chemical. While it is unlikely that your dog will get fleas while at day care, there is always a possibility anytime your dog is exposed to other animals. If your dog is on flea prevention and is exposed to a dog with fleas you wont have to worry about having a problem at home, flea prevention is for your protection.

•All dogs must be in good physical health to attend PAWS doggy day care.

•If your dog requires medication while at day care we will need written consent from you for our staff to medicate them along with written instructions, all medicines need to be in there original packaging.  


• Flea Policy: Here at Paws Doggy Day Care we pride ourselves in our attention to detail and meticulous routines to provide a safe haven for people’s canine family members.

Our day care is cleaned and disinfected every day. Great care is taken each day to ensure the health and well-being of each of our guests, as well as spending a large amount of time handling your dogs and interacting with them to keep them happy and contented whilst in our care. Because of this, we are quick to notice dog’s with signs of fleas. 

If a dog comes to us with fleas, they jeopardise the health of others in our care and could cause a long-term problem. Fleas are detrimental to our business, so we politely ask that you adhere to the following guidelines.


-Please ensure your dog is treated regularly to prevent fleas. We expect your dog to have an effective annual flea management program. This does not mean just treating the dog the day before you arrive.

• Ensure you use a veterinary approved / prescribed flea product such as Advantage, Advocate or Stronghold, or one of the long-term approved natural flea preventions. Your vet will advise you of the best treatment available. Non-prescription treatments, flea collars or spot on treatments you can buy at the supermarket are not effective and are not acceptable.

• Some older types of flea treatment are not as effective and in some cases, fleas have become resistant to these products. Efficacy of these products, particularly Frontline, is also dependent upon a strict dosing regime, generally more frequently than the stated recommended levels.

• We will not treat your dog if we discover it has fleas. This is because we will not know when or with which product you last treated your dog, if at all. We do not wish to cause an allergic reaction or overdose.

• We will however treat the environment to ensure no spread of the infestation occurs. This includes an additional and separate cleaning regime from our usual daily clean, spraying of insecticide to the whole of day care and bedding, the corridor, and the adjoining rooms. Decontamination of day care once your dog has left the premises which renders the day care out of use until completely sprayed with insecticide and lost income to us, followed by a double disinfection to remove any final evidence of contamination. Finally, we must dispose of any of our bedding that may have been used and purchase new replacements. 

• The time and cost to our business is considerable so that we remain a safe haven from fleas. Therefore, a charge of £40.00 will be made to cover the cost of this. This will be added to your final bill.

• We will collect evidence for you to be able to see the level of infestation your dog has. This usually consists of flea dirt, eggs and larvae, and advise you on the next course of action to eradicate the problem.


Suspension and banning 

-if a dog displays aggression or is inappropriately mouthing or biting staff they will be automatically banned from day care for the safety of the team, we will recommend local trainers to help if needed.

• We reserves the right to refuse, or terminate the contract of any dog or owner who displays aggressive, destructive or unreasonable behaviour.

•Any dog that exhibits inappropriate behaviour while in day care will be referred to one of our approved trainers and behaviourists. If a behavioural problem is not actively addressed your contract with PAWS will be terminated.

-Dogs exhibiting inappropriate behaviours will receive a behaviour report, this will need signing by the owner or guardian and a copy will be given to you and one kept on file. We operate a 3 strike policy for minor behaviours that cause disruption to the groups, these are classed as informal behaviour reports, if your dog receives 2 informal behaviour reports for the same behaviour the 3rd behaviour report will become a formal behaviour report. If your dog receives 3 formal behaviour reports for any behaviour they will be automatically banned from day care.


Legal and day care requirements

• Dogs must have a collar with a legal tag on to attend PAWS Doggy day care, Legal tags must contain your surname, the first line of your address and post code anything else is optional.

• Collars must be standard flat collars, we do not accept prong, choke, half check or shock collars.

• Dogs must also enter and leave day care on a standard fixed lead not an extendable one. we are located on a busy industrial estate where HGV vehicles are constantly moving, it is important that all dogs are under control to avoid injury.


Accidents and injury’s

• Dogs at play can occasionally get cuts and scrapes, especially those dogs that like to play rough.

-Dogs that may annoy other dogs due to hormonal or inappropriate behaviour may receive a correction from the other dog, although our team try to avoids situations like this, this is how dogs communicate with each other.

• I understand that a PAWS staff member trained in canine first aid will give all pets involved in any type of incident a cursory examination, however the PAWS’s staff are not trained veterinarians and will not be liable for the location, treatment or diagnosis of any injuries incurred on the Facility’s premises. If your dog(s) is/are involved in an incident at PAWS, you will check your dog(s) further or seek treatment for your dog(s) by a licensed veterinarian at your discretion and cost

• In the unlikely event of your dog being involved in an accident or in an emergency, we will take your dog to our local vets (my pets vets) if we cannot contact you.

•Dogs not familiar with the Facility may experience separation anxiety when apart from their human companions.

Dogs not regularly exposed to the level of activity at the Facility may feel the discomfort of sore muscles, sore joints and fatigue, and dogs not regularly exposed to outside activity or play on hard surfaces may experience sore paws, blisters, bruises or abrasions on the feet (Raw Paw).

•Dogs not regularly socialized do not necessarily know how to behave politely with other dogs. These dogs are at higher risk of incidents including, but not limited to, bites, fights, fear aggression, object guarding, and behaviour problems and/or acting out.

• All Dogs must have a minimum of third party liability insurance to attend day care

•Dogs at play can get dirty, we try to minimise this as much as possible.
