We discuss each dog and their temperament as a team along with any information you provide. They play off-leash in the paddocks.

Small and large dogs are always kept apart and if a specific group doesn’t suit your dog we will try them with a different selection of dogs. Notes are made in our system on each stay to ensure we gather as much information about your dogs as possible.
