Our prices

Our biggest expense are the staff to walk, clean, play and feed your pets - the only way for us to reduce our prices is to reduce the quality of the care we provide and that is something we do not intend to do.

Important Note

Our wages bill is our biggest single overhead making up over half our yearly costs. We try to keep our prices as low as possible but in order to maintain our standards of care, please note as of the 1st May 2019 our rates will be increased on the dogs and cats.

Farcroft currently have 9 members of staff all of whom have a pet qualifcation or are working towards one.

Please note: we DO NOT charge double for Bank Holidays 

However: Christmas day, Boxing day and New Years day are charged at DOUBLE RATE

ALL prices quoted include VAT at 20%.

Payment for boarding includes day of arrival plus the day of departure, NOT the number of nights. UNUSED DAYS must be paid for as booked. Any part of the day counts as a whole day.

If you have 1 dog you pay the single/1st dog price according to the size of your dog. If you have a 2nd/3rd/4th dog from same household sharing a kennel, you pay 1st,2nd and so on. Same for the cats.

New to 2015 Doggie day care and New Doggie overnight sleepover plus a new out of hours service. Detailsfound below of times & prices. Please note that Doggie day care & Overnight sleepover cannot be used where we are normally closed on a Bank Holiday.
