A-Its light therapy, where different light colours have different affects. We predominantly use Greens, Blues, Indigo and Violate to encourage calmness, balance and relaxation in stressed or anxious dogs.

What if my dog falls sick or gets injured during their stay?

We will notify you immediately and tell you of our plan. If we can’t reach you we’ll follow our own Standard Operating Procedures and refer to the form that you filled out. Our insurance will cover vet bills where blame falls to us (neglect), examples; your dog is bitten by another, injured by our infrastructure (kennels, fencing), illness through contamination. We do not cover incidents/accidents caused by toys, beds/bedding, food (choking), injuries whilst being exercised and anything out of little Oaks Boarding Kennels control. We strongly recommend each dog is insured. Clarification should be sought prior to any booking made.

In our fully enclosed field as a small group or on their own as a one to one, depending on your preferences.

If they’ve suffered illness within the last 24hrs we can not accept them, if it has been within the last 7 days we’d be grateful if you’d highlight this.
