We aim to purchase a fully equipped pool and bath for dogs at our fully repurposed doggy daycare centre!

Hi we are Pawswoof Doggy Daycare! I am the owner Vickie, we have a small team with just 4 of us in total. We are all trained in animal care and have specialities including nutrition, dog behaviour and training! We also have a shop at the front of the daycare selling top brands of raw dog food along side some specialist nutritional products and supplements, and even a dog pick & mix table!  

At Pawswoof we offer daycare Monday - Saturday between 7am - 7pm and in this day we offer a scheduled routine including plenty of downtime along with activities and enrichment for the dogs! This is an especially useful service for people who work all day or are out of the house and need somewhere for their dog to be safe, having fun and in the capable hands of trained staff! Its useful for dogs who cannot be trusted to be let off lead but really need that nice stretched out good run about! 

At the centre we hold breed specific events such as dachshund playdates and sports days, puppy training classes and even weekend meet & greets! 

We also have a dog birthday pawty option! 

We are a service that can be, and is, used for disabled or elderly people who cannot give their beloved dog the physical exercise they need due to health reasons. We are also super useful for people who own flat faced breeds of dogs (Brachycephalic) like boxers, French bulldogs and pugs, who get very overheated during exercise and the hot months! The centre is indoors mostly but we do have a large outdoor area too but its so cool in there due to the solid concrete walls and cushioned rubber flooring they are able to get themselves cooled down quickly and keep their body temperature maintained at a good level. We also utilise 4 smaller, varied depth cold water splash pools in the outdoor area for fun and cooling off! 

Whilst striving to provide an exemplary daycare service, Pawswoof have more ideas to help the dog community by providing dog law seminars, we have already provided a venue for training and will continue to do so, but we would like to hold classes to hep educate the public! There is always something to improve at Pawswoof and here's what's next...

A pool! Yes, we have been offered a unique opportunity to acquire a pool and all the equipment that goes with it! This will include life jackets, toys, chemicals, all the maintenance equipment, a full bath (for washing dogs off after) and so much more! 

We at Pawswoof would love to provide a hydrotherapy service for dogs! This could be a whole new branch for us and for our support in the community! Hydro-therapy for dogs has so many amazing benefits including, rehabilitation after surgery, help with arthritic dogs, Help to reduce fear of water, all over body workout and so much more! The pool would only be used by a trained member of staff and would be available as an add on to the daycare or as a stand alone service. Because of this being a stand alone service option we also need some funding to build a half height false wall to enable us to bring dogs in uninterrupted from the daycare dogs, we also need to partially re floor for the pool to enable specialist drainage and a soft surface. 

Please help us in this brand new venture! Swims will be available for our daycare dogs and also as a stand alone service!
