How can I see my dog whilst in daycare?

Within the members’ area of the website, you have access to our live WebCams so you can see your pooches playing all day.

Do you accept puppies at all in daycare?

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.

Can you collect and drop my dog off from my home?

It’s a service we would like to offer if there’s enough demand. Please email us to register your interest.

Does my dog rest during the day?

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.

Can my dog be fed at daycare?

Yes, we will give them their favourite food provided by you if you wish or we can feed them our very own healthy option.

Can I bring my dogs favourite toy to daycare?

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.

What if I am late collecting my dog?

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.

Private Party booking

The facility can be booked privately for evenings and 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.

Are you insured?

Does my dog need to be neutered to attend day care

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.

Dog assessment process

All dogs will be assessed to ascertain their suitability for dog day care in an open, cage free environment with other dogs. More information can be found here.

Does my dog have to be trained before being accepted into daycare?

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.

What happens if my dog doesn’t get on with another dog in daycare?

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.

Dog training and agility

We will be offering dedicated dog and puppy training/ socialisation sessions, so keep an eye out in our newsletter, blogs and social media for dates and times.

How to Pay

Due to Covid, our preferred method of payment is via our secure booking system using card. Alternatively you can use cash or card at drop off.

Visit our facility

We invite owners to visit the facility at their leisure. There will be an initial screening with your dog to ensure they are suitable for daycare however owners are more than welcome to visit our site and have a look prior to this. Or stay and play to see how their dog gets on.
