Don’t ask us... See what our clients say

Bruce has settled in really well at his doggy day care! The staff are fantastic - they're caring, attentive, and truly dedicated to making sure each dog feels at home. The place is very well organised, and the facilities are top-notch. We totally trust them with Bruce's care. Highly recommend!
Our puppy loves his time at Acres! Communication is fabulous and pick up/ drop off is seamless! We're so glad we moved to Acres and feel our pup is far calmer and happier in his new daycare.
We would not use any other doggy day care! The absolute best! James, Bryan, Becca and all the team are fantastic! Our nearly 3 yr old black lab absolutely loves her one day a week, her tail starts wagging as soon as she hears the A4D van turn up! The lovely team who collect her are super too, warm , friendly. Whenever we need urgent care, James responds immediately. Couldn’t do without this amazing team! Thank you A4D! ❤️
Such a great space for me to send my pup! The facilities are amazing and the staff are great, they regularly check in to make sure me and the pup are happy and I enjoy being sent pics and videos. Highly recommended 👌🏼
Our lovely Lulu couldn’t be happier! Fields, friends and food. Just what a dog loves!
Acres 4 Dogs have been very professional and welcoming to our pup Ziggy. They invited us all down to see the facilities and made sure we were comfortable with the set up. The facilities are very good with plenty of different spaces to make sure there is a field that your dog fits into. Everyone who works there appears capable, confident and pleasant. Ziggy comes home exhausted which shows what a good time he has. We could not be happier!
My dog has recently started going to Acres 4 Dogs, he is quite a nervous dog in new situations and as soon as he got there he was excited and not nervous at all. The people are lovely and really helpful that work there,they are also really good with Mylo and give me regular updates. Mylo absolutely loves it and comes back knackered after a day of playing. I would highly recommend to anyone :)
Vinnie my lively 2 year old Vizsla loves going to Acres for dogs and comes back absolutely knackered after his days there. Lee his driver is very friendly and you can see adores his passengers. Great facilities and people who work here are fantastic.
A lovely day out for my beloved girl. Everyone here has been lovely, and the pick up and drop off have been a huge help.My girl comes home happy and tired, just as she should be.I would definitely recommend these good people!
My yorkie Lily absolutely loves going to Acres 4 Dogs. She is a confident little girl so is in complete heaven playing with all her new friends. I don't even get a backwards glance now when I drop her off as she's so excited to start playing. I am sent super pics of her by email and am really happy that I found A4D. I would recommend them to anyone who is considering daycare.
My 1 year old goldendoodle has the best time at daycare. He's always exhausted the following day too which feels like I'm getting 2 days for the price of 1.The team at Acres 4 Dogs are very thorough too, calling regularly to make sure we are happy with the service.Highly recommendMy only suggestion: I would love if they did "pupdates" like some other places. I got photos of him when he first joined but I do love the occasional picture! (This is just a personal opinion, I know some people wouldn't want this 😊)Thanks James and team!
Our Labrador Jack has been going to Acres for Dogs since April and can't wait to get into the van when he is collected each time.Jack loves socialising with other dogs and photos taken show he has a really great time there. He always comes back happy and ready to chill after playing with all his friends.
Acres 4 Dogs is a fabulous doggy day care centre that we use on a weekly basis for our floof pup Mila. They have gone above & beyond to not only make sure Mila is comfortable and happy, but us as owners too. Their doggy bus service is great and we know from her snoozes post-fun that Mila has a fabulous time there! Would 10/10 recommend to a friend!
Very happy with Acres 4 dogs. Really good with our very nervous dog getting him into the van, running around all day and safely back! Would recommend to anyone.
Our little dog started going to Acres 4 Dogs a few months ago and seems to be loving it! She’s so excited when we drop her off and loves the staff who all engage well with her and treat her like she’s one of their own.
My puppy has been going to Acres for Dogs one day per week for a couple of months now and is starting to settle in nicely. The staff are really friendly and really care for the dogs well being. Marley has separation anxiety and the team have been really supportive. I can not fault their dedication. The facilities are well looked after and clean.
Our Cavapoo puppy Pip has been going to Acres4Dogs one day a week for a month and we would recommend it to anyone! Pip seems to be loving it, he happily goes off into the doggy bus (which has also cured his car sickness - bonus!) and is still happy and also tired when he comes home.The team are so good at answering my over protective dog mum questions and regularly send photos. I love that the team offer over night stays in their home - it shows how much they love what they do and our fur babies. Photos taken of Pip at Acres4Dogs.
Love Acres 4 Dogs! Our sweet Lagotto is a nervous pup, but with lots of love and attention from the team, she is settled in happily. She went from hiding upstairs to waiting impatiently for Curtis to arrive!! Cannot say enough positive about this group!❤️❤️❤️
We have been sending our golden retriever puppy to Acres twice a week for 4 months and couldn’t be happier with their service. It has been so smooth and they’ve been so helpful, responsive and accommodating. Our puppy is clearly so happy there and gets lots of activity and fun things to do (I really enjoy seeing it all on the Instagram even on days she’s not in). We feel that she’s really well looked after. We also love her driver who picks her up and drops her off each day - he’s so good with her, fills us in on everything and shows us videos of her in the paddock and he’s just a very positive presence.
Everyone is so welcoming and friendly!My dog absolutely loves going, runs straight in to see everyone and doesn’t turn back to say bye to us at all 😄
Our chocolate lab, Teddy has been with Acres 4 Dogs for around 4.5 years. He started there as a puppy and has been wonderfully well looked after by attentive and friendly staff.I am happy to recommend Acres 4 Dogs!
Our 5 month old cavapoo has been attending Acres for nearly 2 months now. She loves it! She goes off happily with Lee twice a week and comes back tired and calm. Socialising with other puppies has been great for her confidence. We've been delighted with the personal service she and we get and it gives us great peace of mind that she is being so well looked after while I'm at work.
My 4-month Sprockerpoo loves this place, as soon as we get to the driveway he gets very excited. After such an active day he is much calmer in the evenings. I would definitely recommend Acres4Dogs 👍
My puppy Bertie loves the acres4dogs and has really grown in confidence since going there! Would highly recommend.
An outstanding service, the best pick up and day care service I have ever used. All of the staff are wonderful, regular check ins and great communication + the instagram updates are great. 100% recommend!!
Acres 4 Dogs as been a blessing. Always making sure we can rely on them in an emergency, friendly committed staff and providing a comfortable safe environment for our little one. We always recommend Acres to our friends and family.
Our spaniel puppy Maggie started at Acres at 6 months old and she is always so excited to go each week. The staff are very kind and always prompt at responding. It’s obvious the safety and wellbeing of the dogs is very important to them and they were very reassuring that Maggie would be adequately supervised and cared for appropriately, particularly given her young age. We would highly recommend.
Our 3-year-old Havanese has been going to Acres4Dogs once a week for the past few months. His confidence has grown immensely during that time and he seems to absolutely love the centre. For the first few weeks he was very nervous at drop-off but now he runs inside without so much as a backwards glance, which can only be a good sign!He loves to play with other dogs when he is in the right mood but he often prefers a cuddle with the nearest human instead of non-stop playtime. Other daycares have made us feel like he wasn’t welcome unless he was up for tearing around playing ALL day long, but at Acres that doesn’t seem to be an issue, which is greatly appreciated.The only downside is that despite living a 7-minute drive from the centre they won’t do pick up or drop off at our address, which makes life a little more complicated, but so far it’s been worth the extra hassle to know that he is being well looked after somewhere that he seems to enjoy being!
Our dog loves going to Acres for the past 5 years, ever since she was only a few months old. They are very reliable and it’s fantastic knowing she is having a great time there while we are at work.
We have been incredibly happy with the team at Acres and the service they provide for our 8 month old puppy. He is super excited to walk out the door in the morning and comes back ready to cuddle up and sleep! They don't over complicate the process and have communicated clearly if there has been anything to discuss in a day and clearly provide a really happy place for dogs to burn of energy and enjoy the day while we have to work !!!
Bobby loves his time at Acres 4 Dogs!
My puppy Duke has recently joined the Acres 4 Dogs family, and he absolutely loves it. He is beyond excited when he gets collected for the fun bus, and comes home a happy confident puppy. He's only 4 months and I can see the positive impact of socialising with the other dogs and his training/manners which he's learning through the amazing staff organically through the day. For a very busy single pup parent, the convenience of the fun bus is perfect for me. Plus the trust I've build due to the genuine people caring for my boy sets me very much at ease and I know he's in good hands!I would highly recommend Acres 4 Dogs to anyone looking for a top notch day care for their floof!
Our puppy started going to Acres4Dogs for 1 day a week from when he was 3 months old. The team was super helpful at arranging a visit to ensure I felt comfortable with knowing where he was going and how it works. Since he's been there I've been really happy and impressed with their services and general approach. He is picked up and dropped off by the same person each time which allows us and him to build up a trusted relationship. Would definitely recommend.
My 1 year old Labrador, Tilly, ABSOLUTELY loves going to doggy daycare at Acres 4 Dogs. She is always so excited to go there, the team are fantastic, always greet you with a smile... even on rainy days. Tilly is so well looked after, absolutely shattered after her day of fun and I love seeing photos of her on their facebook page. 100% recommend! :)
They have been great and super accommodating!! Also Arthur loves it there
We love love love sending proper to Acres! We know that once she’s picked up in the morning she’s going to have a good day! They are so brilliant at booking in extra days when we need!Extra bonus that she won ‘Ruffs’ 😂🐕
James and the team at A4D are just incredible with our Zula. She normally goes on a Monday and has figured out when daycare day is, so when we get ready upstairs, she waits at the front door for pick up and it’s all guns blazing when the van finally arrives. She comes back knackered from having a great day out. I can highly recommend Acres!!!
A good daycare centre especially if you have a medium sized dog or bigger. The home collection and drop off is helpful as well. Staff very friendly and experienced dog handlers.
Our little dog gets picked up and dropped off. Always comes home happy and tired out. Really great to have him regularly socialise.
My dog joined Acres 4 Dogs a couple months ago and loves it! Great pick up and drop off service, definitely would recommend!
Excellent puppy daycare! Our 6 months old puppy have been going to daycare since 12 weeks old and it helped him a lot to build confidence around other dogs and he learned to play nicely. The team is so lovely and caring that our pup runs to the van on pick up days.
Acres4dogs is a great choice for doggy daycare. Loads of space (literally acres) and a great team of people looking after the dogs. Our 10 month old sheepdog is full of energy but always comes home ready for a snooze. The home drop off has worked well and I can’t praise them enough.
The team have been amazing with our new puppy and he loves every day there! Feel very lucky to have found such a caring team.
Alexander has great fun at day care and comes home exhausted! We’d definitely recommend Acres - it’s a great service and the staff are all really friendly and caring.
We've been using Acres for years. Great for socialising our dog when he was a pup, and now (at the ripe old age of 6) he loves playing with his pals a couple of times a week. Reliable, accommodating with changes when life gets in the way of a routine, and happy dog people - I would heartily recommend them!
Excellent service. The dogs are very well taken care off and arrive tired and happy after a day in Acres 4 Dogs!
My dog coco loves her time spent at acres for dogs, she knows when her fun bus is coming before it is even in our road! She can't wait to go and loves all the staff who come to pick her up. She comes home again very tired and content. A Happy dog.
