Where We Walk
This local nature reserve consists of ancient woodland, grassland, and sandstone cliffs. The interconnecting woodland pathways link Bakersfield, Colwick, and Sneinton. The woods and fields provide plenty of space for the dogs to run, sniff, and play together.
I have been running a doggy daycare service full-time since 2013, and walking and caring for dogs since my teens. I love what I do, and can't imagine doing any other job.
I am trained in canine first aid, and qualified in professional daycare and boarding for dogs. I have several dog behaviour qualifications and am currently studying for two more. I believe in a science-based, positive reinforcement approach to training, and work with owners to help bring out the best in their dog.
I am fully insured, and licensed by Nottingham City Council (license number 126193). I'm also a member of the Association of Dog Boarders.
About the premises
We will be moving to new premises in Bakersfield (less than a 5 minute drive from our current location) from August 2020.
Our new home will have a custom designed doggy room, and a much bigger garden for the pups to play in!
Variety of different toys always available. Interactive toys, puzzles, slow feeders, outdoor agility equipment.
Multiple different beds, indoor and outdoor access. Lots of options for play and relaxation.
