Care is at the heart of everything we do here.

At Practical Dog Training, we are here to provide the best care and due attention to your cats and dogs and make them feel at home in a stress-free environment. 

We, PDTKC, understand that leaving your pet can be a stressful time (for both of you!) but we are DAERA-registered and have Qualified Staff on board with Daycare and Boarding Qualifications as well as the essential Pet First Aid. And while in our care, we will provide adequate exercise, with a minimum of 4 daily exercise routines.

Our secured area outside allows ample space for your dogs to run around but we can also accomodate those rainy days with an internal area. Furthermore, if you wish, Practical Dog Training offers training during their stay to help motivate the mind as well as the body. 

And, of course, we will adapt to any requirements that you feel is best for your pet to make their stay as homely as possible.  We cannot wait to welcome them.

"Love leaving our dog here ... friendly warm and caring and you can tell that this is more than a job to them. I couldn’t recommend them enough. We’d be lost without them and we’ll never use anyone else."
