Situated on the outskirts of Ayr and Prestwick, Ayrshire Dog
Care provides care, attention, exercise and fun for your dog, whether he visits us for day care, spends his holidays with
us, or whether we pick him up from home to take him on his daily walk.
We are adjacent to the River Ayr Walk and
Auchincruive Estate, close to Prestwick and Ayr beaches and the Failford Gorge to name a few, all providing wonderful
walks, exercise and fun!
DOG AND PUPPY DAY CARE SERVICE - regular bookings or "one-offs"
For our day care guests, we are situated in eight acres of fenced grass areas where they can enjoy, with your permission, off-lead
play, exploration and exercise, either in a group or individually. For the more energetic, how about some fun on our
little agility course or for hot days, perhaps a little paddle in one of our paddling pools. Along with other play areas
- indoor and out, we have a large area covered with top quality, professionally installed artificial grass and adjacent indoor
playroom where the dogs can enjoy year round free play - no confinement to individual kennels and runs for the lucky dogs
who come to Ayrshire Dog Care! For a little "R and R", our courtyard with comfy beds or our decked area, is
ideal for a snooze and a snack. After a walk on a cold winter's day, perhaps nothing beckons more
than to curl up in front of one of our log burning stoves or in one of the heated playrooms where they can laze on one of
the comfy beds or sofas.
DOG AND PUPPY HOME BOARDING SERVICE - a wonderful, stress-free
alternative to boarding kennels.
It may be that you need to leave your dog behind whilst away on business, holiday etc
but don't want to leave him kennels or rely on relatives and friends. Ayrshire Dog Care can provide a "home
from home" environment where he can enjoy all the fun and games during the day with his friends and stay in the
house at night. Best of both worlds!
IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE: We do not "farm" your dog out to
a third party. He will live with us in our home for the duration of his stay.
a secure and welcoming area set in 3 fenced and hedged acres where you and your dog can play, train or just relax, safe in
the knowledge that you won't meet any other dog. Bookings are exclusive and at low cost so come and give it a try!
WASH - our latest service offers a practical
but fun solution for you and your dog. AyrshireDogCare has built a lovely bathing chalet complete with the top of the range bath
from Pro Dog Baths and driers. We also supply Hilton Herbs shampoo, towels and brushes (or bring your own.
Bookings are exclusive and at low cost so come and give it a try!
DOG WALKING SERVICE
We can also arrange to pick your dog up from home, take him on his daily walk for about an hour and then drop him
off again, ensuring that he has plenty of fresh water and perhaps a treat. We will make sure he is settled and comfortable
before leaving him, hopefully to snooze.
PET "POP-IN" VISITS
For small animals
- e.g. cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, chickens etc, we can arrange to visit your home to feed, water and clean out cages. We
will take the time to give them a little tlc and health check before leaving.
DOG TRAINING AND PUPPY SOCIALISATION
Being Canine Dog Training also holds non aversive training classes - both obedience and fun agility
- as well as socialisation classes for your new puppy. The classes are held in our large designated outside training arena
and Dale McLelland, qualified behaviourist and trainer, works hard to ensure that they are fun and a positive experience for
both dog and handler. See our "Services" page for details.
Before any booking for Day Care or Home Boarding,
we will arrange for you to visit us here with your dog to see the facilities we have, to answer any questions and to put your
mind at rest that your dog will receive the best possible care and attention and that you will be leaving him in safe, capable
and loving hands. At Ayrshire Dog Care, you're dog is not just a number - one of many - but an individual!
During this visit, we will take note of your dog's reactions to help us ensure that he has a relaxed and happy time
with us on his future visits.
For Dog Walking bookings, we will visit you in your home to be introduced to your
dog before the arrangement starts.
Our ethos is based on the belief that our clients' needs and peace of mind
are of paramount importance. We are committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of Ayrshire
Dog Care's business is from repeat customers and recommendations.
