We advise that you make sure that any person you leave your dogs or cats with is licensed by the Council. In this way you can be assured that at least basic standards of health, safety and welfare are met. Always visit the premises first, meet the staff and ask to be shown around, particularly the areas where your dog will be looked after. Most business owners are only too pleased to do this. If a full tour with dogs present is refused, you might reconsider whether the facility is right for you and your dog.
There is a list of premises currently licensed which is updated here every month, to find out more information contact Environmental Health on 01395 517457.
