Our Worcester Doggy day care is an excellent solution if you are working long hours and your dog is left home alone. Sometimes you may want a 'day off' or perhaps a 'day out' but worry about leaving your dog unattended. Instead of worrying, why not bring your dog to our ad hoc doggy day care. See some of our happy guests in our gallery.
We offer a fully licenced, small and personal boutique-style doggy daycare service in a home environment, ensuring your dog has a fun time whilst you are away, providing lots of enrichment activities, companionship, socialisation and walks. There are no children on the premises, all entry/exit points are double-gated for added safety and our large garden is fully secured. All cleaning products used around the dogs are DEFRA recommended as pet safe. We have strict welfare and well being policies in place in accordance with our Higher Awards Council Home Boarding licence (22/06365/ANIACT)
The health, happiness and well-being of the dogs who stay is of huge importance and the business is based around the 5 key freedoms of animal welfare under Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018.
What happens in doggy day care?
Imagine your dog having the best day ever at DogFather HQ! They will start with a refreshing walk in the beautiful woodlands (Perry Wood) and meadows (Ronkswood Hill) nearby, where they can explore nature and sniff new scents. Then they will come back to our cozy and fun-filled home, where they can choose from a variety of activities to keep them happy and entertained. They can nap, snack, play with puzzles in the garden, dig, splash, socialize, chase or cuddle - whatever they feel like doing! We have something for every dog, no matter their age, energy level or likes.
We also have a special dog sensory garden with dog-friendly herbs and plants that they can enjoy. The garden can be divided into sections to give each dog their own space if they prefer. Inside the house, we have multiple rooms and comfy beds where they can relax and unwind when they need some quiet time.
Dogs are always supervised and cared for by us. To end the day on a high note, we take them for another walk in the afternoon to stretch their legs and say goodbye to their new friends. We hope hope your dog will love their stay at DogFather HQ!
