Due to the restrictions implemented by the Government we are having to close down our Boarding and Day Care facilities until such time as the restrictions are lifted. All classes and Pack Walks are also closed until further notice. We are obviously very disappointed to have to take this action but it is important that we comply with Government requirements at this difficult time. We will closely monitor the situation with a view to re-opening as soon as we can.

If you are a Key Worker and need to board your dog please contact us by phone on 0118 979 1214 or email to

In the meantime, please note that we are still able to take orders for food. Orders can be made online or by phone to 0118 979 1214. Our paddocks are still open and can be booked as normal via the online booking system

Dog Boarding & Day Care

Dog Boarding and Day Care is available to all dogs, irrespective of size and behaviour.  As we are a dog behaviour and rehabilitation centre we are able to consider dogs that may not be accepted in other boarding facilities due to behavioural issues.

Unlike some kennels and day care centres, at Dog Trouble your dog will be fully exercised (approximately 3 hours per day depending on age/health), entertained and socialised every day.  The Dog Trouble Team are fully trained in identifying and addressing behaviour issues, in addition to maintaining balance within a pack.  Unlike other boarding and day care facilities, dogs are matched in groups according to their energy (personality) ensuring that each dog has a positive experience during their stay and not bullied or being the bully!

NOTE: We accept up-to-date titre test results as well as vaccination records and we do not insist on vaccination against Canine Infectious Bronchitus (Kennel Cough).

On a daily basis your dog will experience the following structure:

Morning: Exercise – Pack Walk (walking respectfully on leash with a group of dogs); Kennel rest and breakfast

Mid Morning: Socialisation – Interacting with a small group of dogs in our grass Day Paddock, with swimming pool

Afternoon: Exercise – Pack Walk/Cycle/Scootering; Kennel rest

Late Afternoon: Play/Socialisation – Participating in activities within a group/individually eg Ball, Search & Find, Agility
