What their day will look like:
With drop offs from 8am, your pup’s first group walk will start at approximately 10am. Walks will be kept to a maximum of four dogs per human, all of which will be suitably grouped. Breed, energy levels and age will all be considered when grouping dogs for their walk.
After their morning walk it will be back to the centre for some much-needed chill time, introducing calming stimulus such as thinking and decision-making games, positively enforcing and re-enforcing good behaviours.
After enrichment games, afternoons will be feeding time for those pups requiring a lunchtime meal. Although we are a plant-based centre we of course understand that not all dogs share the same diet. Therefore, we have a separate fridge in the centre’s kitchen to avoid cross contamination with the Barkney Wick café.
To avoid sickness or GDV we will also allow at least a 2hour respite after feeding before their second outing, during which time they are most likely to take some time out and catch up on some ZZZs. With dogs typically sleeping up to 18 hours a day, a resting schedule will be very much a part of their routine.
The second walk will take place mid-afternoon after this rest time. Close to both Victoria park and the Olympic park we are fortunate enough to be able to alternate their morning and afternoon walks so that each outing brings about new and different stimulus.
We have spent a great deal of time and effort working on the day-care to create “time-out” zones and safe spaces as well as interactive and engaging recreational areas. Time-out and safe spaces help to maintain a calm environment and to avoid any possible conflict.Collection is from 17:00 (drop-offs can also be organised with the team).
What their half day will look like:
There are two time-slot options for our half day-care services. The morning half day session begins with drop-off from 08:00 and lasts until midday when you can come and collect your pup from Barkney Wick.
The afternoon half day session starts with drop-off from 13:30 and collection is at 17:30.Our half day-care package does not include a walk (aside from toilet breaks of course!) but the time spent in the centre will include the same enrichment and calming games, time-out sessions as set out in the Full Day details above.
The time your pup spends with us will include games, play, thinking and decision making, cuddles and of course a chance for furends to hang out in our safe and secure environment.A full handover will also be available on pick up from the Barkney Wick team.
