Sessions are priced from three to up to six dogs. They can all be your dogs, or a mix of yours and those belonging or in the care of friends/family.

Over six dogs? We can accomadate more than six dogs but we need to speak with you first, drop us a message and can make arrangements.

When bringing together dogs who do not live together, they must be social and able to interact with each other to ensure safety and to minimise any adverse behaviours.
