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.
our latest addition - offering 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!
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 CLASSES
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
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.
