DELUXE DAY CARE

Are you visiting The Lakes with your dog and hoping to enjoy a dog free day out? There’s so much to do and explore in The Lakes but not all of it is suitable for our furry friends and it can sometimes be difficult to balance the requests of all the family on holiday!  

That’s where we can help.  Our Deluxe Day Care service helps you to enjoy a dog free day out safe in the knowledge that your dog is enjoying their day out too! 

Do you have a special event to attend or do you simply need a dog free day for chores?  We’ve got you covered as well! 

Our Deluxe Day Care service also includes free local pick up and drop off to take all the dog related stress out of your day. Our vans are fully converted for safety and security with individual comfortable spaces for each dog.  

What happens at Deluxe Day Care? 

We specialise in providing a fun, well balanced day for your dog in a calm and positive environment with plenty of mental and physical stimulation as well as time for rest.  

Your dog will enjoy two good walks (AM & PM) - at least one of these will be a group adventure walk with our regular team, assuming that is suitable for them.  On these walks we play games with the team focussed on using their super-sense of smell, practise skills and wild agility and leave plenty of time for exploring and enjoying ‘being dog’. We make good use of our amazing local trails of course!   

Over lunch we spend time in our comfortable home to give your dog the opportunity for some rest and also some enrichment  - we have a range of activities available along with all the creature comforts you would expect so your dog can relax comfortably. We are licensed by South Lakeland District Council to care for dogs in our home with a rating of 5 stars.  

At the end of our day, we will return your dog clean and contented.  They will feel mentally and physically fulfilled and ready to enjoy a relaxing evening with you.  This means you can relax too after your busy day!  

Is my dog suitable for this service?

Our Deluxe Day Care service is suitable for dogs over one year of age who get on well with other dogs.  Male dogs need to be neutered.  

If your dog is elderly and requires less exercise, or is nervous around other dogs, please do get in touch to discuss.  We may have availability to care for your dog on a more individual basis to ensure their needs are met. 

We will email you a consultation form prior to your dog’s day with us so we have detailed information to help us to care for them well.  Should you be available for a meet and greet beforehand this can also be arranged.  

Deluxe Day Care - Service Times and Fees 

This service is available Monday - Friday, 9am - 4pm (excluding Bank Holidays).

The service fee is £70. (Two dogs from the same family is £100).

WEDDING DOG CARE AND CHAPERONE SERVICE

On your big day it can often be difficult to find someone to look after your dog as the friends and family that you usually rely on are involved in the day too.  Why not let our experienced family team care for your dog so that you can enjoy your big day without worrying about them? 

As a much loved member of your family, you may want your dog to share in the celebrations as well and to be part of your special day. We can help!

Our wedding dog care and chaperone services are designed to take the stress out of your big day and help to make it a celebration to remember.  We can work with you to plan your dog’s involvement in the day, tailoring our service to your requirements, so please do get in touch to discuss if your requirements are slightly different to those outlined below. 

When we take a wedding booking we exclusively book that day out for you.  However, if you have family and friends requiring care for their dogs on the day then let us know and we may be able to help with that too.  

If you are interested in any of our wedding services, please see further details below and then get in touch by email at amblesidedogwalker@gmail.com or using the Get In Touch button at the bottom. 

PLATINUM WEDDING DOG CARE AND CHAPERONE SERVICE

This exclusive service enables your dog to be present at your ceremony and maybe have a starring role as well as being around to be included in photographs. 

We work with you well in advance to plan out all the details so everything runs smoothly on the day and we can offer advice on what we have found to work well given our experience in attending weddings as a dog chaperone.  

How does the day work?

We collect your dog in the morning (usually around 9am).  We have fully converted vehicles for the safety and security of the dogs in our care while travelling.  

We’ll take your dog for a good walk during the morning and they’ll have a rest before getting ready to attend the wedding.  

We’ll make sure we return them to the venue clean and dressed in any attire you may have provided for them to wear.  If they’re comfortable with grooming, we will give their coat a brush as well so they’re looking their very best!

We arrive in good time for the ceremony and are very experienced at helping your dog to feel calm and contented despite all the exciting events going on around them!  

Following the ceremony (during which we’ll carry out duties as pre agreed with you) we’ll supervise the dogs and help with their participation in the photos.  Again, we have a range of tricks to help your photographer to get the best out of the photos with them in.  

We’ll then take your dog away for some rest time and another walk prior to returning them to you or a designated carer early evening (usually around 6pm).   

What is included within this service? 

  • Initial telephone conversation on booking to discuss general requirements and find out more about your dog

  • Meet and Greet - we like to meet you and your dog and take your dog for a walk so that when it comes to the big day, they know us and are happy to come along with us (If we feel it would be beneficial, we sometimes suggest a second meet up prior to the big day)

  • Email support throughout the booking process and lead up to the wedding

  • Final telephone consultation to confirm arrangements close to the wedding day

  • Up to 9 hours caring for your dog on the day

For this service we’ll care for your dog for the day so you can enjoy your day worry free, but we’ll bring them along to the venue after the ceremony so you can say hello and have some photos with them in.
