Holidays For Pets

Vale Farmhouse provides a home from home holiday for your dog. We don’t have kennels, just cosy rooms furnished with sofas or beds, so that you know your dog is relaxed and happy in a home environment whilst you enjoy your holiday. There is lots of space for exercise and play time with other dogs. Of course we also like to make sure the dogs have plenty of attention, and cuddles are free !

Followed at 1433 by a call from Mrs *-* I explained what we do to manage and try to prevent any noise; invited her to come to see me and also to have a look around (as she expressed concerns about the dogs’ welfare). I closed by asking her to call and speak to me personally to discuss any concerns she may have. Mrs ** hasn’t called me.

22/3/17 @ 1603 Call from Mr *-* saying “Can you shut those dogs up please, I’m in the garden and can hear from here. As nice weather is coming I can’t enjoy my time in the garden due to the dogs“ Mr *-* was advised by the member of staff who took the call that all dogs here were inside ready for their afternoon feed.

Mr *** called on 5/5/17 and spoke to a member of staff, saying “please can you stop the dogs barking, it’s too noisy. I’m recording the conversation should you want to go to the police.”
