SPPOT provides a high quality dog daycare service for just six to eight sociable, gentle and fun-loving dogs in our multi-roomed, comfortable training centre, with significant concessions for dog owners who are elderly or who have long term illnesses and disabilities.

Dogs who come to SPPOT for daycare each have a wonderful day, with individual care and training plans tailored to their needs. They are assigned their own personal K9 Keyworker who ensures they have everything they need during their time with us - walks, play, meals, training and rest and anything else they may need.

Dogs who come to SPPOT help provide our trainees with unique opportunities to volunteer with dogs, care for and train dogs and gain valuable accreditations, alongside practical experience and all the benefits of Human Animal Interaction (HAI) and Animal Assisted Interventions (AAI)

We accept six to eight compatible dogs per day, to ensure each dog remains comfortable and stress free all day. All dogs are professionally assessed by our qualified staff before being accepted for daycare at SPPOT and while they do not have to be perfectly trained, they do need to be sociable, gentle and able to be handled and walked comfortably.

Our initial assessment includes an informal visit with you, a half day taster session and then a period of assessment, (length depends on how often you use the service) to ensure that you, your dog and all our volunteers are happy. Our straightforward assessment will be fully explained to you throughout.

Some dogs do have training issues that we can help with as we have several qualified, experienced dog trainers on the staff team who use only scientifically proven, positive, reward based, force free techniques. However the comfort, safety, enjoyment and wellbeing of all dogs and people attending SPPOT is our primary concern and so we ask that all applicants read the requirements opposite before applying for a place.

TRAINING, PLAY & INTERACTION
With such high people to dog ratios, from fully trained, accredited volunteers, you can be assured that your dog will have a wonderful day, tailored to his or her individual needs including supervised play sessions in small compatible groups, interactive play with people, puzzle games, relaxation sessions and accompanied rest time.
Every dog is taken out for comfort walks throughout the day into the garden and the Racecourse and will also be taken on one or two walks (number and length on your instruction), with our Accredited Dog Walkers, to the Racecourse of course, but also local footpaths and also to the beaches as Broadhaven and Dale are within easy reach.
