Is it still the same level of service as before?
Ofcourse. Brogan is still here, and we’ve made it more of a stripped back operation to make sure that we’re giving the best level of service possible. Dog daycare is an excellent way to provide your furry friend with the exercise and socialisation they need to thrive. At Fidget and Friends, our dog daycare offers a safe and stimulating environment for your dog to play, socialise and learn new things. Our facility is staffed by a fully trained vet nurse, ensuring that your dog is in good hands. Regular daycare can help prevent behavior issues such as separation anxiety, and excessive barking or digging. It can also help to reduce the chances of obesity and other health issues caused by lack of exercise. Dog daycare is also a great way for your pet to make new friends, which can help to improve their overall well-being. As a result, dog daycare is an excellent option for busy pet parents who want to make sure their dog is happy, healthy and well-cared for.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is dog daycare?
Dog daycare is a service where dogs are taken care of and entertained during the day while their owners are away. They are given the opportunity to socialise with other dogs, play and get exercise, and be taken care of by trained professionals.
How do I know if my dog is suitable for daycare?
Most dogs are suitable for daycare as long as they are well socialised, healthy and up to date on vaccinations. However, some dogs may not be suitable due to behavior or health issues. When you sign up, it’s best you’re honest with our staff. We will run a trial day to make sure your dog is safe and happy in our environment. It’s common for some dogs to not be a good fit for Daycare.
What are the benefits of dog daycare?
Dog daycare provides many benefits such as preventing behavior issues such as separation anxiety, reducing the chances of obesity and other health issues caused by lack of exercise, and giving your pet the opportunity to make new friends and socialise.
What kind of activities will my dog participate in during daycare?
The activities that your dog will participate in during daycare will depend on the specific dog in question. Some like to play with a ball, some don’t. Some like structured playtime, some don’t. We’ll assess your Dog in it’s trial day and how it behaves with others and amend it’s activities based on what we think they’d enjoy.
Do you do boarding?
Unfortunately we do not do boarding. Our Hours are 8am – 6pm, Monday to Friday.
Is there a limit to how many dogs are in the daycare at one time?
We try and have no more than 10 dogs to each member of staff, although legally it’s 1 member of staff to 15 dogs. We have 3 pens in our main arena, as well as a Nap Room and some individual rooms. All dogs are kept under careful supervision.
Are vaccinations required for my dog to attend daycare?
Yes, we require that dogs are up to date on vaccinations before attending daycare. Including Kennel Cough.
Can I drop off and pick up my dog at any time during the day?
We try and be flexible, although we ask that if it’s at an unusual time you let a member of staff know as the doorbell is quite disruptive. Most drop-offs are between 8am and 10am, and most pickups are between 4pm and 6pm.
Will my dog be supervised at all times during daycare?
Yes, we have staff present at all times to supervise the dogs.
What happens if my dog gets sick or injured while at daycare?
We have a protocol in place for handling sick or injured dogs, and would contact the owner immediately in such case. We ask for an emergency number to be on file when you sign up.
Do you take Raw Fed dogs?
No, unfortunately. If your Dog is Raw Fed they can’t come to our Daycare.

What Fidget’s Friends say
At Fidget & Friends we run a Membership model, so it works just the same way as a Nursery or a Gym. You pick how many days per week you’d like your Dog or Puppy to come, what day, and we reserve your space so you’re guaranteed your slot every week, and we take payment every month in the form of a direct debit. This way we know what Dog’s are in when, and we can make sure that they’re getting the most amount of attention possible and we can plan our activities for the day.
