ABOUT OUR DAYCARE
HIGHEST RATED LICENSED DOGGY DAYCARE BY EPPING FOREST DISTRICT COUNCIL
WHERE IT ALL STARTED
In 2014 Laurence the dog entered Eddie’s life. Having previously volunteered in dog shelters and growing up around animals, Eddie knew the joy that a pooch could bring into a family home. But it was soon apparent that his busy London lifestyle was not suited for or compatible with caring for his puppy.
In a desperate bid, Eddie tried dog walkers to try and tire Laurence and evening puppy classes for socialisation, but Eddie felt Laurence was not getting the attention or the exercise that he so desperately craved.
That’s when Eddie sussed it, his daughter was off to nursery, so why wasn’t there a similar service available for dogs?
WHERE WE ARE NOW
Eddie’s has come a long way since the very first dog in 2014! The day care centre is one of the most popular daycares in London & Essex and the Highest Rated Doggy Daycare by Epping Forest District Council.
The doggy nursery boasts fully secure fields, heated indoor log cabins complete with dog beds for tired pups, agility courses for the extra intuitive pooches, gazebos for the dogs to laze in the shade, paddling pools for the extra hot days and of course plenty of toys!
Eddie’s Doggy Daycare offers a pick up and drop off service, so you don’t have to worry about a thing during your busy mornings. Your dogs will spend a full day where they are free to play, exercise, socialise and learn new skills with their doggy friends whilst the fun is constantly supervised by Eddie & his fully trained team.
Each dog is treated individually at Eddie’s Doggy Daycare and using our experience we will tailor the day specifically to your dog. So, if you have a bouncy puppy, small or large dog, we will ensure the day fits your pet’s requirements. All of our dogs undertake an assessment by a member of our team to ensure that all attending are suitable to join our pack!
