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 we decided that as of 1st May 2017 our rates would increase on the dogs and cats.
Over the past year Amy started here full time. Bethany has completed her apprenticeship and started working here full time also which has doubled her pay rate. We have also employed another apprentice bringing us up to 6 full timers and 2 part timers.

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.
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.

I know in the past some people have had issues with arriving during our usual hours and where possible we have tried to help but we have been limited by our own availability – by making a charge for this service we will now be in a position to pay a member of staff to stay late or start early when required.
