Doggie Daydreamz's main priority is to provide a safe, secure, relaxed and happy environment for all dogs, as far as is reasonably possible. We are licensed by Mid Suffolk District Council for daycare and home boarding for a maximum of 6 dogs at any one time, plus our 2 family dogs and a copy of the licence can be seen here. We have been given a 4* rating by the Council, as per the new Animal Welfare Regulations 2018 which came into effect on 1st October 2018. This is the highest rating we could achieve as we have not yet been trading for more than 3 years.
Prior to any booking being considered an initial visit to Doggie Daydreamz must be arranged, as only dogs considered to be well socialised, good off lead and who enjoy the company of other dogs and people are suitable to stay at Doggie Daydreamz. It is also very important to us that you like our set up and facilities and that you feel 100% happy leaving your dog in our care. This visit is also to ensure that we can make an accurate initial assessment regarding the suitability of a dog (such as its social behaviour, compatibility with the resident dogs, energy levels, suitability for off lead walks and check for any signs of aggression or unsociable habits) and is for the benefit of all dogs who stay at Doggie Daydreamz.
Once a dog has been accepted by Doggie Daydreamz an honest and detailed registration form (one per dog) should then be submitted, along with an up to date copy of the dogs vaccination certificate.

Therefore, by completing and signing our registration form you are agreeing to our following terms and conditions: Any changes to a registration form (contact details, behavioural issues etc) should be advised in writing.
