Enrichment Program

The well being of your dog is our first priority; We have developed an Enrichment Program to ensure that your dog has the best holiday possible by creating a more positive, productive experience for your dog during their stay with us.

 

Enrichment is a process (not a one time event). Enrichment for dogs in boarding kennels is designed to support their sensory and social needs in order to help reduce boredom, stress, and undesirable behavior. It also helps to teach and reinforce basic manners, and build their confidence.

 

Our Enrichment Program is designed to stimulate all your dogs’ senses.

All guests can benefit no matter what age or whether your dog prefers human company or the company of other dogs.

 

Our enrichment program includes playing music, which has been created specifically for dogs to help keep them calm and relaxed. Aromatherapy, using natural scents also helps to calm and sooth.

Play and human interaction are vital for a dog’s mental health. As part of our Enrichment Program, we use interactive toys to encourage your dog to keep busy and have fun. Treat balls, stuffed kongs, sandpits, kiddy pools, ball pits, obstacle courses, tug of war and fetch games will ensure that your dog enjoys his holiday just as much as you enjoy yours.

 

Sociable dogs can enjoy group play with other dogs , grouped according to size and play styles. Playgroups are excellent for making your dog’s stay with us a pleasant and fun one. Socialization is one of the most valuable forms of enrichment for dogs.

 

The elderly or more sedate will enjoy Our Real Life Room which is set up as a living room, with couches and a TV. Our staff spend time sitting with your dog. Patting and massaging dogs, and/or reading quietly to them, especially in a quiet space, helps promote a better mental and emotional state.

Your dog might enjoy a gentle stroll in our park area and a sniff and a roll in the grass.

 

Whatever activities your dog enjoys, our goal is to ensue your dog has the best holiday possible.
