About us

Doggy Day Care has been up n running since 2007 and we have certainly grown over the past years. See what our staff say below



Our Staff



As my mum was competing in obedience when I was born, I also have her love and enthusiasm for dogs.
For my weekly pocket money I walked our dogs before and after school, even walking dogs in the village for extra pocket money and one from the local pub for a mars bar!
I have never lived without a dog by my side so when I set up the business in 2007, I had my beloved Regan ( a collie) and Gucci (a rescue Doberman) with me 24/7.
Along the way Jinx (Rescue Shepherd cross Presa Canerio) and now Daisy (Inherited Rescue lurcher) loving each day as the last!
With my dogs I have trained in obedience, agility, Cannicross and I also volunteer at Danesford Dog Club in the Bronze Kennel Club Good Citizens Scheme.
I can’t believe how lucky I am to have such an amazing career with the best company every day!



As Hayley’s Mum, it was obvious that Hayley would end up working with dogs as we have a shared love of our canine companions. When I retired from my office job in 2010, I joined Doggy Day Care as Hayley’s business successfully grew.

I have been competing in obedience with my dogs for some 45 years along side the running of Danesford Dog Club in Congleton, with over 100 dog members to-date qualifying for Crufts with quite a few winning their respective class.

At Crufts 2019, we won Kennel Club Good Citizens Best Dog Club!

My own dogs are, Deacon (a retired Blue Merle Collie), Alfie (a retired Pyrenean Sheep Dog), and Jersey (a Collie) currently competing in Obedience.
my dogs love my job and the furry friends that they get to play with on a daily basis..



I have 2 rescue lurchers from greyhound gap, misty who is around 13 now and jinx who is about 11. I have been working for Hayley and doggy day care since August 2015 and still love my job as much as the day I started.



I have been working for Doggydaycare since October 2016
When I was made redundant from my previous job, I really didn’t think I would find another job that I loved, it was a childhood dream came true when I got to work for Doggydaycare..
I love all the dogs I walk and treat them like family, I’m also lucky to have had quite a few from puppy stage and it’s lovely to see them grow into happy dogs..
I used to own Red setters but currently don’t have a dog of my own so to look after other peoples is wonderful…



Started Oct 2017. Always had rescue dogs. Volunteer for sighthound rescue last 7 hrs. Had 5 fosters. Currently have 3 sight hounds. Ellie Murphy and Spike



I have been around dogs for last 17 yrs and currently own an Irish setter. Have a group of dogs and owners that I walk with at weekends so working with Hayley at Doggy Day Care is like a home from home.

I am a behavioural trainer and I offer one to one sessions for people who require a little extra help with any aspect of their dog’s training or behaviour. I also offer training for puppies to ensure they get started off on the right paw.
