Here at Bark & Birch we offer a full doggy day care service in and around London. With dogs being so important and a key part of the family we know immediately the questions you may have – we’re fully insured, all of our trainers are fully vetted, we’re secure & we love dogs more than anyone else you’ll ever encounter.
If you struggle to find the time for dog walking, train them or simply let them play then doggy daycare is the solution. Your dog will have hours of fun & interaction with our caring and friendly team from woodland walks to games of catch, rope tugging & more. Our grounds offer the perfect environment for your companion to stretch their legs and to get the exercise vital for their health.
Whether you have to commute, work excess hours or are tied up with other important commitments let Bark and Birch support you and your dog. More than 30% of dogs in the UK get less than the minimum recommended amount of exercise – according to the PDSA not only is exercise and interaction essential for all dogs, it’s important for their mental health & overall physical health too. We don’t just take care of our clients, we take care of all the furry companions we get the privilege of looking after.
So how much is doggy daycare near me?
Is Bark & Birch like a dog nursery?
Yes, except we take dogs of any age whether you need dog walking, boarding or general dog day care for your border collie or Jack Russell, or perhaps you need puppy day care in London for that new addition to the family? it doesn’t matter what breed or what age – we accept all dogs into our 5* dog day care.
What will our dog/s get to do?
There will be plenty for your faithful companion to do from woodland walks to field runs, interactive play with our trainers through to toy play, interactive treat finding, and more! It’ll be your dog’s idea of heaven. Because we’re experts in dog training and dog behaviour, we understand that a place away from an owner can be anxiety-provoking for some dogs – but, no fear, we know the psychology of dogs and we’ll know how to settle them into a relaxed, playful and friendly environment.
We’re also conscious of the different needs that different breeds have – we know that the exercise needs of a working cocker spaniel are likely to be much greater than that of a chihuahua or other toy breeds. So your dog will have the option of resting when they want, or, tearing up the fields and adventure walks if they’re full of energy and raring to go.
We assess each dog’s needs on a one to one basis to ensure their safe, happy, content, and relaxed.
Other than lots of play – we offer dog walking, interactive tasks and stimulating environments.
Will my dog be safe around other dogs?
Yes, we’ll always ensure that dogs of a specific breed or temperament are grouped to maximise compatibility and reduce risk. Thanks to our highly trained dog trainers – we’re able to vet and group dogs in such a way that allows maximum breed, size, and behaviour compatibility – so don’t worry, your small chihuahua won’t be grouped with the great Danes or Rhodesian ridgebacks.
Your dog will never be left unattended and will be kept safe.
