Weekends – as above but due to there being no day care, walks may be for longer and special outings may be planned with your permission.
Weather – walks/exercise may be restricted to early morning and late evening only in the summer. The play barn may be used as an alternative if the weather is exceptionally hot/cold.
Tailoring – a specific routine will be drawn up for each individual dog, incorporating any particular needs and working around your own daily activities.
Exercise – the times outlined ensure that your dog is getting an adequate amount of exercise, although it assumes that all dogs are separated. Most often, however, dogs mix together following successful settling in periods; and can have far longer at each activity, and may go out to play at their leisure.
