Due to their strength, we may require a trial stay depending on age, size, and behaviour for the following breeds: American Akita, American Bulldog, American Staffie, Anatolian Shepherd, Belgian Malinois, Belgian Shepherd, Bernese Mountain Dog, Bull Arab, Bull Mastiff, Bull Terrier, Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff), Caucasian Shepherd, Doberman, Dogue De Bordeaux (French Mastiff), Dutch Shepherd, German Shepherd, Great Dane, Maremma, Newfoundland, Pitbull Terrier, Pyrenees, Tibetan Mastiff, etc.

Any dog with behavioural issues will also require a trial stay before their first stay.

An introductory day stay or overnight stay can be extremely beneficial in assessing whether an excitable kennel environment is going to be a suitable option for certain dogs. It also gives them a gentle introduction to our staff, our routine, and exposure to all the new sights and smells they are going to experience while with us, which will make their first stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.

Trial Stays are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in off-peak periods only. A successful trial must be completed in advance of any future reservations so please plan accordingly.
