We pick up the dogs and puppies of Watford and the surrounding areas from their home and take them out into the Hertfordshire countryside for the entire day at our doggy daycare! Here at Buddies, we want to make life as easy as possible for you- we include a personal front door pick up and collection service every morning and evening. Your dog will get to spend the day playing with their new friends and our team of adoring staff in acres of private and secure meadows, leaving you to get on with your busy day!
Even Mondays are fun days at Buddies! Our land is completely secure, meaning that your dog will be off their leash all day, free to play and explore with their friends under our watchful eye no matter how good (or bad!) their recall is. Your dog can spend a fun filled day climbing on the tree trunks, digging in the sand pits or just chasing their buddies round the acres of meadows. Our team value the importance of familiarity and bonding, and all dogs in our care are regulars so that we can build a nurturing relationship.
Is your excitable pup ready to run free in some open space and start socialising with other dogs? Those little legs can’t walk too far yet so we’ll pick them up in our GPS tracked, spacious van for the ride to our day care facility. Once there, your puppy will team up with their pals to explore and gain new experiences – picking up some basic training along the way. Sleepy puppies can curl up on a warm lap for a puppy power nap to recharge ready for their next activity. We have a special puppy program and they can start from as young as 10 weeks old!
Meet Ania, best friend to the dogs of Watford!
“Growing up around dogs had me hooked on them from an early age. I spent my time volunteering in various rescue shelters and I knew that working with dogs was the career I wanted to pursue and I feel so lucky to have found a job that I look forward to going to everyday. One of the best things about working for Buddies is seeing a dog’s confidence grow as they spend more time with us and all the other dogs.”
Fiona with Moose
Moose has been coming to Buddies for nearly two years and absolutely loves it. She goes straight to the front door when she hears the van pull up outside and is ecstatic to see Jess. The service has been extremely reliable for me, with flexibility to add on days when needed. Moose comes home exercised, tired, clean, and well socialised.
Daniela with Loubee
Buddies is a fantastic doggy daycare which has given me piece of mind each day my dog is there which has been nearly every day since she was 12 weeks old (now nearly 3). She loves it and comes home happy and tired from an active day out. Pick up and drop off each day with lovely friendly staff who are all really passionate about the dogs and clearly love them all.
Angela with Phoebe
Phoebe has been going to Buddies for nearly seven years – she has grown with the company! Throughout that time they have been consistently reliable, trustworthy and flexible. We have one seriously happy dog and cannot recommend Tom and his lovely team highly enough.
