Doggie Day Care

Doggie Day Care Centre More of us go out to work for most of the week. Unfortunately this isn't the lifestyle that our dogs desire. Here at Doggie Day Care we ensure that your dog receives the exercise, company, stimulation and fun that they lack if left at home alone. Day care is also the perfect place for your dog to socialise with other dogs and people, and produces a happy and well-adjusted dog who is easier to live. Doggie Day Care is the perfect place for all types of dogs. We actively encourage puppies to come along for socialisation as well as adolescent, adult and senior dogs. We tailor make each dog's day so they receive the correct level of exercise, rest, play and company for their individual needs. Day Care is a purpose built facility with inside and outside play areas both containing a multitude of toys. The inside area also contains a raised chillout area which the dogs can choose to retreat too when they are tired or need a bit of space whilst still being able to watch the action. There is a quiet area, which is ideal for puppies, or dogs who are just starting out in day care who need a gradual introduction to playtime. The outside paddock boasts 6ft high fences to ensure our dogs are safely contained whilst entertained by the multitude of enrichment.

All Dog Food Natural Instinct only employ fresh meat that’s been sourced from DEFRA-approved farms. From both an ethical and health conscious viewpoint, we don’t use battery farm chickens or any intensivelyfarmed animals as there’s a growing body of evidence which suggests that the use of cheap, substandard ingredients has been a trigger for health problems in pets. A staunch, unflinching commitment to human grade ingredients means that all our meats are dressed. In other words the phrase meat isn’t a misguided euphemism for a big bucket of chicken heads, feathers and feet. We also never resort to bulking out our recipes with undesirable fillers such as dairy produce, animal by-products, animal derivatives or artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.

Petsitters required for occasional dog boarding in your own homes. Must have experience of owning dogs

Sussex Petsitters Price Increase: We have not taken the decision to increase fees lightly, however, for us to maintain and continue to improve the service that we provide, this review has been necessary and remains very competitive with similar services offered by other companies. Our Fees have remained the same for the last 10 years and with effect from the 1st January 2013, the price of a one hours’ dog walk will increase from £8 to £9, for 2 dogs it will be £13.50, for 3 dogs it will be £18 and 4 dogs it will be £25. There are no changes to the prices of any other service at this time. Invoicing: As part of our commitment to improving the service that we provide to our customers, we have recently introduced a new computer system, which now enables us to provide quotes, book services, invoice for those services, and receive payments, all through one system, making the whole process more streamlined and efficient. As we now have the facility to invoice for services, we would like you to pay for services monthly in advance rather than finding the fees at the end of each week. Any extra walks for the month can be added to next months invoice and any cancelled walks, can be credited to next months invoice also. (Subject to SPS cancellation policy) Once Invoiced, you can still pay your pet-sitter by cash or cheque or direct to the company by BACS, and in addition to these options we can now offer a facility to pay accounts by card over the telephone; please call the office on 01243 697202 between 9.00am and 4.00pm to make payment by this method.
