Puppy club pictures

Puppy club

Puppy club is not on at the moment unfortunately due to the weather but will hopefully be restating in March 2020. Please keep an eye on the Facebook page for updates 


 As dog owners we all know the importance of early social play and interaction and puppy club is the perfect opportunity for that!


Held every Sunday and split into smaller and larger breeds, this unique club gives young pups (up to 3 years old) the chance to play and make friends in a safe environment. 

We even provide a cup of tea or coffee whilst your young ones enjoy being free to socialise,learn and play.


To attend please contact us for details. We will need you to bring along your dogs' vaccination cards in order to attend as this is part of our license from the council.

Field hire

Hire the field for an hour at a time, perfect for reactive or nervous dogs. At Howlies we believe that all dogs should play  and hiring the field gives all dogs that chance.

Hire it as an individual or bring your friends along, whichever you would most like. Free tea and coffee provided as well.

This option is also available for birthday parties, send us a message to find out more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my dog be safe at Howlies?

Yes, all dogs are temperament tested before they join so that we can be sure they are friendly and their behaviour is always monitored and recorded. Staff are trained in canine care and first aid and health records are completed and sent home daily. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept un-neutered dogs? 

We accept dogs who haven't been neutered up to 9 months of age, after that a dog would have to be neutered in order to keep attending Howlies. Girls don't have to be spayed but cannot attend whilst they are in season.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have to attend on a fixed day?

No, at Howlies we realise that needs change, sometimes on a daily basis, and we do our best to accommodate this. 

We accept regular customers and ad-hoc customers, our business works to help you, so please send us a message and we can discuss your individual needs. 

What if I'm not going to be home?

As part of our insurance we are permitted to enter people's houses and hold keys for them. Houses are securely locked and double checked and all address details are kept safe and secure at all times. 

What if my dog is sick whilst at Howlies?

We have a separate medical area and work closely with the vets at Companion care as well. If your dog is sick, you will always be the first point of contact unless it is in an emergency

How do I know if my dog is suited to daycare?

Before a dog can be given a place at daycare, we invite you and your dog down for a free temperament test. This is basically a play session where the daycare dogs are introduced slowly to your dog so we can see how they react in a group situation. All our staff are trained to look for signs of anxiety in dogs and we can explain this to you if you would like us to do so. 

Late cancellations

Late cancellations

Late cancellations

At Howlies we charge 50% of the daycare fee for late cancellations. This is to cover staffing costs as our license dictates how many staff we have to have working in relation to the number of dogs on site. 

Notice which is less than 24 hours will be charged at this rate.

Play and rest policy

At Howlies we understand that dogs want to play but it is just as important that they rest, especially our younger and older family members.

Therefore we introduced our play and rest policy.

Everyday at 11:00 and 2:00 there will be a 30-45 minute rest period where all dogs will be  taken into the big hut and will be encouraged to lie or sit down and rest. 

Staff will not be moving around during this time so the dogs can copy their actions. 

Resting dogs will be praised and a calm environment shall be created during this period.

Any dog that is identified as needing more rest shall be taken out by a staff member and will have a further rest period in the office with the staff member present. 

No dog is ever left alone whilst at Howlies
