A day in the life of Wood Drove Kennels
All dogs have unlimited access to their bedrooms and gardens between 7am - 9.30pm. All our kennels are disinfected twice a day and checked hourly for cleanliness.
7.00am - 9.30am
Dogs are fed, watered and exercised in our field. Bedrooms are cleaned and disinfected, medication is given. Lots of fuss is given to the dogs who all greet us with excitement and unbridled joy!
9.30am - 10.00am
Quiet time after breakfast and a chance to digest.
10.00am - 12.00pm
Some dogs leave for home and others are just arrving. This causes great excitement amongst the dogs who adore the commotion and a chance to be nosey!
12.00pm - 2.00pm
After all the busy barking its time for their afternoon nap. We close to the public during this period and peace and quiet is restored.
2.00pm - 3.00pm
Water bowls are changed and fresh water is given. Public viewings take place at 2pm.
3.00pm - 5.00pm
Dogs are fed and exercised in the field again. Gardens are cleaned and disinfected.
5.00pm - 6.00pm
Bowls are collected and all of the dogs get settled down with a cuddle. Tina administers any medication needed.
6.00pm - 9.30pm
Dogs are free to roam around their bedrooms and gardens. Some play with toys or gnaw a bone, others just laze about.
9.30pm - 10.00pm
Bedroom doors are now closed and its bedtime. All dogs receive a homemade biscuit. For company, we turn the radios on to Radio 4 and then its lights out on another busy day.
