Can I meet the team and see the facilities before sending my dog?

Yes. We recommend you do this! Come and see the place in action. Meet the team, ask questions, see exactly where your dog will spend their day, who they'll be with, and what they'll be doing.


What happens if my dog doesn't get on with another dog?

84 Acres is extremely strict in only accepting social dogs. This ensures all of the dogs are happy in one another's company, so it's unlikely your dog will not get on with another dog. In fact, the dogs usually form their own social groups with dogs who enjoy similiar activities!

My dog doesn't like crates or confined spaces, will he cope with travelling to and from the centre?

The crates are vet approved and have more space than necessary for even the bigger breeds. Very rarely do we find that the dogs have any issues with the van or crates, since it has a hugely positive association for them - it means they get to have a fun day running around with all their friends!
