Day Care

Our doggie day care service offers dogs a fun-packed day, giving owners an easy, affordable way of keeping their dogs fit, active, fully exercised and safe whilst they are away from home.

We now offer our customers the opportunity to leave their dogs with us for the day - this could be for a one-off occasion or on a regular basis (discounts apply for regular day care). It could be that you work long hours, or you just want the freedom to go out for the day and not have to rush back at lunchtime because your dog is anxious and destructive. We can give you peace of mind knowing your dog will be fully stimulated, exercised and loved whilst they're with us. At the end of a long day, you won't need to worry about having to fit in a long walk, so you can enjoy your evening relaxing and bonding with your dog.

Doggie day care is a cost effective option for customers compared to employing a dog walker to take your dog out for an hour each day, leaving them unfulfilled and alone for the rest of the day. Our doggy day care offers a full day with us in a safe, loving environment allowing your dog to work off all their energy with friends (if sociable, or alone if not).

We ensure that the dogs in our care have the right mix of exercise, rest, stimulation, fun, socialisation, cuddles, treats and love.

With walks around the farmland, playing with their new friends and lapping up the plethora of smells in the fields, together with supervised playtime, there is plenty to stimulate interest and keep their brains as well as their bodies active.

We understand that not all dogs enjoy the company of others so if your dog isn't sociable, we are happy to accommodate them and exercise them alone - they get the same amount of attention and love and we work hard to ensure every dog in our care feels relaxed and comfortable at Spatchcock.

Are you visiting The Cotswolds on holiday with your dog and want the flexibility to drop them into a kennels for a day here and there while you do non-dog friendly activities?


Doggie day care at Spatchcock Kennels is the perfect answer.

Our day care customers have an individual kennel, the same as our regular boarders, so they can sleep and have some alone time, and we can feed them as well if required.

We are open from 7.30 am for drop off through to 6.30 pm for collection in the summer or 6pm in winter (times only apply to day care customers) - we can also collect and/or drop home locally for added convenience on a 1st come 1st served basis. We collect and drop around Cirencester, Northleach, Fairford, Down Ampney and the many villages close by.

You can see how much fun your dog is having by checking out our Facebook page, as we take videos and post regular updates.

As well as full day care, we also offer half day sessions, either a morning or afternoon (collection and drop off service not available for this option).
