Here at Station Cottage we adore dogs and understand how important it is for them to be safe and cared for. We offer daycare services for your dog and we take pride in ensuring all of our furry customers have the best time here with us. They'll get lots of love and attention, experienced supervision and a good mix of rest and play.
Our establishment is fully Licensed by North Kesteven District Council and insured by Protectivity Insurance.
Daycare Rates: £16 per dog for up to a 10hr day.
We offer our customers the opportunity to leave their dogs with us for the day, as a one-off or on a regular basis. Whether it's because of long working hours, not having time to give your dog the full exercise they require, wanting the freedom to go out for the day shopping and not having to rush back at lunchtime because your dog is anxious and destructive, or just because your dog hates to be alone, we can give you peace of mind knowing your dog will be fully looked after, exercised and loved whilst they're with us.
Our job is to ensure that the dogs in our care have the right mix of exercise, rest, stimulation, fun, socialisation, cuddles, treats and love. The dogs are supervised all day and their levels of rest vs play tailored for the size, age and nature of each individual.
We're a 'home away from home' style daycare, most of the fun comes from just being with other dogs, chasing each other and sniffing about in our intriguing garden, then coming in for a cuddle and a rest on the couch with us.
Our general opening hours are 7.45am to 5.45pm, however we are able to flexible on occasion, so feel free to ask for alternative times.
We also take photographs and videos each day, uploading them to our social media pages meaning you can see just how much fun your dog is having, and who they are playing with that day! You can find our Facebook, and Instagram pages by clicking the links.
