Dog Daycare Service
You know what they say. Location, location, location. Well ours is our biggest selling point. A massive grassy paddock, fenced and full of games, hay bales, sand pits, earthed play tunnels and even a swimming pool. The dogs love it. Beyond that, there’s open woodland where we do two long walks a day, rain or shine, and there’s the rest of our 11-acre farm to explore. Unless they have a problem with recall, dogs need never be on the lead. Those who do have poor recall can still run about off the lead in our secure paddock. When they’ve had their walk we have a hot shower to wash them down as well as dedicated feeding pens.
We want the dogs to feel at home and it helps that they spend their quiet time resting on our warm, waterproof beds and sofas, not sleeping in the van for hours. There’s plenty of room in our barn conversion to play or sleep. We have three sectioned chillout zones so we can group compatible pets at rest time.
WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING DOG DAYCARE
So you’ve decided to send your dog to daycare and you’ve had a look to see what’s out there. What’s next?
- Go and see it. Don't just talk to someone in an office, make sure you look around the whole place.
- Arrange an appropriate time, as dogs may be out on their walk, or having their rest time.
- See where the dogs rest, feed and exercise, is it warm and sheltered from bad weather, is it safe and secure?
- Meet the people who actually look after the dogs, do they look as though they love dogs?
- Do the dogs look relaxed and happy?
BOGGS DOGS TAXI
We are proud to be the greenest dog daycare in East Lothian, with an all-electric dog taxi producing low carbon emissions, onsite dog poo composting which reduces our carbon footprint as we’ve no need for a waste disposal company and solar panels which generate all the center’s electricity.
We’ll collect your dog from your home between 8am and 10am and drop them off at the end of the day between 3.45pm and 5pm. This means our dogs have limited time in our vans. If you’re happy to give us a key, you don’t even need to be in when we come. The vans are air-conditioned in the summer and lined with warm beds which are frequently washed, in the winter.
It can be tricky finding the time in your busy schedule to get your pet groomed so it makes sense for us to do it for you. You’ll also find dogs are a lot more relaxed being groomed at Boggs Dogs where they feel at home, rather than being taken somewhere unfamiliar. So if you’re interested in any grooming, from nail-clipping to something a bit more extensive, talk to us. We also offer these services to dogs who don't come to daycare. Just call us and tell us what you want.
We work with dog behaviourist Maxwell Muir, from Action4dogs, who is an expert on all elements of dog training. He comes every few months to give us training on all aspects of dog behaviour and keeps us up to date on best practice. He has also done training with specific dogs if we’ve felt, together with the owners, that a particular dog would benefit from one-to-one training.
Watch out for our regular seminars held by Max. Our next seminar and workshop is held in 20th March 2020 - This 1-2-1 workshop concentrates on recall and lasts 1hr 15mins. Please call us to find out more.
PHOTO AND VIDEO UPDATES
We know you like to see what your dog has been up to, so when they’re in daycare with us we’ll always try to send you regular updates, whether it’s photos or a short video filmed on their walk. We’ll also give you feedback about their progress or any specific issues that have cropped up. So you’ll always know what’s going on.
