Basil's Blog: A Trip to Doggy Daycare


Young pup Basil is forever by my side but with an important funeral to attend, and without a dog-sitter to call on, what to do? Thankfully my parents came good with a suggestion – their local doggy daycare centre a.k.a. crèche for canines. However, I wasn’t going to let Basil go to any old place; my parents were sent to vet the place. Thankfully, they reported back that Trendy Pooches Doggy Daycare in the Wirral was a suitable play-date location for their beloved grand-pup.


For the fee of £20, Basil received a full day of stimulation, interaction, playtime and nap-time with his new-found pals within the safety of the Trendy Pooches closely monitored environment. Entry to the centre is strict – all owners must present their dog’s vaccination certificates and complete a detailed application form outlining their dog’s health, temperament, ability to understand commands, interaction skills and even how well they share and play with toys so I felt more than assured that Basil was in safe hands. The staff also kindly took some snaps of Basil throughout his day so I was able to see what he got up to, which I share with you.



A day pass to Trendy Pooches Doggy Daycare costs £20 or if purchased as a bundle works out as little as £17 per day. For more information, visit Trendypoochesdoggydaycare.co.uk or meet them in person at the centre at 5 Carr Lane Business Unit, Carr Lane, Hoylake, Wirral CH47 4AZ. While in the area, you might also want to check out their sister business, Trendy Pooches Grooming Salon and Spa, which is home to a 24-hour coin operated, self-service dog wash.

I'm also pleased to report that Basil has ticked off his first item from his 50 strong, doggy bucket list - 'cheer your owner up when they are down'. It's been a testing time of late with my grandfather passing but Basil has been a mini-tower of strength providing a paw to cry on, a much-needed boost and frequent distractions thanks to loving looks from his bug eyes, warm and cosy cuddles or just being his cheeky rascal self. Well done Basil - only 49 more to go!
