Rachel's Dog Club

We offer a premium dog daycare service with the highest dog to staff ratio across Manchester’s daycare centres. This allows all dogs, including puppies, to go out every day on our wonderful group walks. We have a maximum of 4 dogs per walker and take the dogs to local fields, parks and woodland throughout their day.

We are a fully licensed and insured dog daycare centre in Manchester and offer exceptional care for dogs of all shapes and sizes. We have always strived to offer the best service for all of our dog and human clients! Our dog daycare facility has a range of different areas which dogs can spend their days exploring and we always complete tasks and activities with them. Throughout the day, our loving and trusting team of dog carers will always take photographs and videos of your dog when they’re with us to share with you every day so you can see the fun they’ve had.

What the dogs do throughout the day

At our dog daycare we follow a timetable throughout the day to ensure all of our dogs are enriched both mentally and physically. Whilst in our centre dogs will be carefully grouped into ‘classes’ according to their energy levels and size. They will then be assigned their designated dog carer. Your dog’s carer will ensure they are working through a range of activities whilst with us: sniffing treasure hunt games, puzzles, brain games, digging tasks in the giant sand pit and many more! They will also get the opportunity for plenty of free play across our centre to enjoy our countless toys, giant ball pool and bacon bubble machine!

During your dog’s day they will be taken out to local fields and countryside for a wonderful walk with their dog friends. If their recall is secure they can play off-lead together; if not, we use a 20m long line so none of our dogs miss out on the fun! We explore different terrains, play sniffing ‘treasure hunt’ games in the woodland, play fetch & chase or go for a splash in local streams.

The Puppy Club

Within our dog daycare we pride ourselves in offering a specialist service for puppies. This is why we run our exclusive Puppy Club programme whilst your puppy is with us. The programme is focused around socialisation and habituation. Our socialisation tasks are focused around slowly introducing puppies to other puppies and adult dogs so they build up their confidence. Our habituation tasks are focused around introducing your puppy to the world. They will do fun courses to be introduced to different surfaces and smells and be taken on trails outdoors to be introduced to different people and sounds. All of this is completed at your dog’s own pace so they learn the world around them is a positive place. Whilst with us we will also support house-training, teach your puppy basic commands, teach them how to walk on a lead and begin recall training.

How to arrange your dog’s first day

Firstly, get in touch with us to register your dog. We will need some information about them along with a photo of their up to date vaccination records. Once we’ve established that our daycare would be suitable for your dog, we will arrange their free assessment. We would ask you to drop off your dog between 8:00am and 9:00am on a day which is suitable for you. During the assessment we will slowly and carefully introduce your dog to our pack and observe them to ensure they are happy and calm in our environment. The assessment will take approximately two hours in total. Following this time, we will get in touch with you with their feedback and some photos and videos of their morning. If your dog has been successful, they would be welcome to stay with us for the rest of the day for half price (£12.50).

Dogs which cannot attend

We treat all dogs as individuals and whether they can attend is based on their behaviour whilst with us. Intact males may join us for a trial but owners must be available to collect them if they are disruptive. Bitches may not attend when in season. Dogs which show any signs of aggression towards other dogs will not be able to join us. For dog-aggressive dogs we do provide solo dog walks.

How to book daycare sessions

Once your dog has passed their assessment they will be able to join us as regularly as you’d like. Booking daycare sessions is simple! You can choose whether you would like regular set daycare days each week or varied days. If you would like set days we will automatically add your session to our diary each week, which guarantees your dog daycare session. If varied days suits you best, please message us on a Friday to book the days you would like the following week. For pack harmony and to ensure your dog understands their routine, we would recommend your dog attending a minimum of one day per week.

Our taxi service

Life is often very busy and dropping your dog off and collecting them whilst you’re busy with work can be difficult. This is why we offer a collection and drop off service. We collect dogs between 8:00am and 9:30am and drop off between 4:00pm and 5:30pm. Following your dog’s successful assessment, we will organise how we will access your property and then we’ll take care of the rest. All door keys are kept in a safe, are insured and will be returned on request. Our taxi service covers postcodes M1, M2, M3, M4, M5, M6, M7, M8, M15 and M50.

Where we’re located

Our daycare is at the edge of Salford and very close to Manchester City Centre. The address is Unit 111, 105-117 Broughton Lane, M7 1UH. If you are using a Sat Nav put in ‘111 Broughton Lane’ as the postcode sometimes sends you to the back of the building.

Opening times

We are open five days a week, Monday – Friday. The centre opens at 7:30am and closes at 6:30pm. If you require any weekend services we are able to offer dog walking.

Multiple dog discounts

If you have more than one dog, we offer a 20% discount on the daycare price for any additional dog from the same household. The taxi service is free for additional dogs.
