Welcome To Our First Addition

Winter at Playschool

As you know our Playschool has been open for 4 months and our members are increasing weekly with many more enquiries coming in as people return to work.

The frost has finally arrived, after a warm October and clocks have gone back drawing the nights in, so we are reviewing safety for our dogs as always. As the days get colder we recognise dogs will get more tired, their pads will need more care and the roads for transport will be getting icy. With this in mind, we are changing our Playschool times slightly:

From 1st December to 1st March pick up will commence from 8.45am – home time will be from  3.45pm.

Please can you send your fur babies with a warm waterproof coat to wear.

One of the biggest joys of working for Playschool is hearing about how much our dogs and their parents enjoy the experience…please send in any photos of your amazing furry friends waiting for pick up to light up our day

As we grow in numbers

We are bringing dogs and puppies on every month and both Lisa and I pride ourselves in bringing on kind, non aggressive dogs through our interview process and evaluation of them in the first few weeks at playschool.

To date we have a group of dogs we are so proud of. We will continue to be vigilant with our doggies as we grow, so we maintain peace and playfulness on site and reduce any incidents moving forward, as best we can. We keep our fur babies under constant review and if we see any behaviour worries as our numbers grow, we will review them and discuss concerns with parents.

Kris joined us last month and is a key member of the team, allowing our members to now drop off their dogs in the morning from 8am. Kris has many years experience with dogs; having grown up with them. Kris will be taking Doggy First Aid course this month and will then undertake her Ofqual Level 3 Welfare, Care and Behaviour qualification over the next few months. Kris works part time allowing us to give more flexibility to the playschool members. If members are keen, we also allow home-time pick ups between 16:00 and 16.30.
