Puppies are allowed in daycare after their second set of vaccinations. Please keep in mind we also require our group to have had the kennel cough vaccination and be up-to-date with worming and flea treatments.
This is paramount at Springfield, as the last thing we want is a tired snappy dog. Nap times are scheduled to ensure the dogs are fully rested before more playtime. If this still isn’t enough for our more ‘relaxed’ dogs they can doze in our chill out area on our couches and dog beds.
We ask owners to refrain from bringing toys into daycare. 90% of arguments between dogs are due to them being possessive over toys / food etc which is why we have put this policy in place. Don’t worry this has been compensated with a number of fun activities to keep your pooches entertained.
We ask all owners to try their best to comply with our closing times. However, we know there can be unforeseen circumstances so we will ensure your pooch is safe until we re-unite you both but this may incur an extra charge of £5 for every 30mins over to cover some of the staffing costs.
The facility can be booked privately for weekend birthday parties for all your pouches’ friends to help celebrate in style, or just have a get together. Please get in touch to arrange or keep an eye out on social media for updates.
Your dog does not have to be trained to be accepted to daycare. In fact it is one of the reasons owners bring their dogs to daycare. Daycare teaches the dog manners in their social groups, which should make for more enjoyable walks with their owners.
At Springfield we are very strict on only accepting socialised dogs. This is to ensure we always have a happy group and to avoid squabbling between dogs.
We have teamed up with Doopie Dog Training to offer puppy and dog training classes here at Springfield. For more information please contact us or keep an eye out for updates on our social media page.
In order for the dogs in our care to be as relaxed as possible we operate a closed door policy during day care hours. If you would like to see the facility and see where your pup will be playing please take a look at our gallery section, check out social media or why not book a Saturday private hire session and stay and play.
The centre will be open from 7:30am to 6:00pm. Security is extremely important for our pets. You will need to be let in to the main reception where you will be greeted by a staff member to both drop off and collect your dog(s). If you are going to be late you must let us know and there will be an additional charge if beyond 30 minutes as staff will need to be paid. If you are sending someone to collect on your behalf they will need your password.
Whilst we strongly recommend neutering to ensure your dog gets the best out of day-care we do not have a blanket policy. Please see our policy on neutering.
