Frequently - asked - questions
“As dog owners ourselves we understand how important it is to get it right.”
We understand how special your dogs are to you and how important it is for us to get it right. As dog owners ourselves, we would want to know the ins and outs of where we were sending our little ones! We have put together a few questions and answers below, if you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch. CountryCanines will be happy to help.
My dog has not been spayed or neutered, can he/she still attend daycare?
Males over the age of 1 years old will not be accepted. CountryCanines will discuss this with you in the initial consultation,
We do not accept bitches in season at the daycare. Please advise us immediately if your dog is in season, or coming into season. Due to the nature of our daycare and the lack of confinement, although every effort will be made to prevent pregnancy, we can accept no responsibility should your dog become pregnant.
Are you fully insured and hold all the appropriate licences?
Of course! We are fully insured and have been awarded with a 5 star licence from Ribble Valley Council.
How do you know the other dogs are friendly?
CountryCanines has a strict "Friendly Dogs Only" policy. Only friendly dogs will be allowed at the daycare, all dogs go through the three stage application process where we carefully assess whether they are right for CountryCanines or not.
I start work early and don’t come back home until the evening, can I use your services?
Of course! Most of our CountryCanines customers work full time. We hold the keys to our customers homes and collect/deliver dogs when they are not there.
My dog is not very well trained, does this mean they can't attend CountryCanines?
Absolutely not, we accept dogs no matter what level of training they are at, providing they have a good recall and do not chase sheep. Daycare is a great place for dogs to learn, and CountryCanines will help with training. However please remember we have a strict policy of only accepting social dogs who have never shown aggression to a person or another dog.
