About Doggy Bed and Biscuit
I started Doggy Bed & Biscuit as a loving, fun, happy, clean and safe place for your furry friends to visit on days when you can't be with them so they don't have to spend so much time home alone and can get lots of social interaction.
I have always had the biggest love of animals and what gave me my passion to start my own doggy daycare was my own dog, Louie, a 5 year old cavoodle.
Louie was often left home alone and this has always made me think about what he must do all day to entertain himself as dogs are such active and attention craving animals. He inspired me to open my own doggy daycare where I can offer to share my love for Louie, but also other dogs.
I wanted my Doggy Daycare to have a very open outdoor setup, with days full of fun, games and activities to strengthen their social skills and behaviour plus a walk for extra exercise.
We require a copy of your dogs vet book before they start at daycare, to ensure that their vaccinations are up to date.
We also require you to continuously update us with any and all booster vaccinations, medications, and any other health related issues.
We take our dogs on a walk every day unless requested otherwise. This is a great way to expend some of the energy that the bigger dogs have.
For our smaller furry friends, we gauge whether they're up for a walk with the big dogs (everyone is on leads) or whether they go a little later with dogs of their own size. It's not uncommon for one of the little ones to become tuckered out and have to be carried home!
To help prevent and keep track of flea treatments, we suggest all our dogs are treated during the first week of the month.
To help you remember there will be a monthly reminder posted on our Facebook page. Please let us know by either message or in person when your dog has been teated and when the next treatment is due so we can update our records.
If your dog is found to have fleas at daycare, there will be a $10 fee charged to you, as we will be giving your loved one a flea shampoo and isolating them from their doggy friends for the remainder of the day. This is to ensure we avoid fleas being spread amongst the daycare.
We at Doggy Bed & Biscuit promise that we will never leave the dogs unattended. There will always be a carer with your furry friend ensuring no one is getting into mischief!
Doggy Bed & Biscuit has a three strike policy for unacceptable dog behaviour at our daycare.
We believe that all our dogs should get equal attention and do not wish to have any problem dogs that require extra supervision.
If, unfortunately your dog earns three strikes, sadly they will not be welcomed back to daycare unless we see immense improvements in their behaviour.
As this is a safe and happy environment we want all the dogs to enjoy their days and feel safe at all times so please never be offended if we raise any issues about your dog, or can no longer have therm at daycare, as this is for the safety and wellbeing of not only your dog, but the others in our care.
The dogs and our own safety is our main goal while at daycare, therefore Doggy Bed & Biscuit Daycare is not suited for every dog. Daycare is not a place for aggressive dogs to learn social behaviour.
We accept all dogs at Doggy Bed & Biscuit and we will give each dog a fair chance before we judge their behaviour.
