Suffolk Dog Town FAQs

At Suffolk Dog Town, the health and safety of all of our guests is our top priority. That’s why we have a few requirements in place to ensure that all dogs who attend are kept safe and healthy. These include being fully vaccinated and up to date on DHPP, Lepto, and Kennel Cough vaccinations. We do accept dogs who have undergone Titre Testing, as long as we have a copy of the vet’s certificate.

Female dogs in season are not allowed to attend while they’re in heat, but once they’ve finished they’re more than welcome to come back when they’ve had a nice bubble bath and are fully dry. For safety reasons, males over the age of 8 months must be castrated to attend Suffolk Dog Town. We also allow the hormone implant, but we must receive written confirmation from your vet.

Puppies are welcome to join the dog creche family at Suffolk Dog Town as soon as they’re 12 weeks old and fully vaccinated (they must have both sets of vaccinations, including Kennel Cough). We recommend bringing your puppy to visit us for half a day at first, so they can get used to the dog creche environment and build up to a full day of play when they’re ready. Our popular puppy socialisation sessions and puppy training classes are also a great way for your puppy to develop their social skills and become a confident, well-rounded pup!

We welcome dogs of all ages at Suffolk Dog Town! Whether you’ve got a playful pup or a senior pooch, they’ll find plenty of fun and enrichment here. We understand that older dogs may have different needs and energy levels, but that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy the same benefits as the young ones! In fact, many senior dogs thrive in social environments like our daycare creche, where they can receive extra attention and cuddles.

By bringing your older dog to Suffolk Dog Town, you’ll be providing them with an important source of socialisation and stimulation. This keeps their mind and body active, which can help prevent or slow down age-related declines in health and behaviour. Our team of experienced canine carers will make sure your dog is comfortable and happy throughout the day, whether they want to take part in our fun games and activities or just come for a snooze and a cuddle. 

No, we never take dogs off site during their time at Suffolk Dog Town. Instead, we provide them with over 4500 sq ft of bespoke play-zones and activities designed to keep them happy, entertained, and stimulated while they’re with us. We understand the importance of exercise and fresh air for your dog, so we have a secure yard filled with fun agility equipment, fully enclosed with high security fencing. CCTV is in place to cover the entire perimeter of our centre, and all doors are kept fully locked at all times for their safety and well-being.

When you bring your dog to Suffolk Dog Town, you can have full peace of mind knowing they’re in the best possible hands.

Here at Suffolk Dog Town, we strive to provide the best care and services for all dogs, regardless of their breed. However, for the safety and well-being of all our guests, we have a list of breeds that we unfortunately can’t accept – mainly those that are listed on the Dangerous Dog Act 1991. This list may vary depending on the current advice from insurers and DEFRA Legislation. We do take bull breeds, such as English Bull Terriers, as long as they pass a temperament test and are suitable for the daycare environment. To ensure that these breeds receive the proper socialisation and enrichment, we require bull breeds to visit us at least twice a week.

If you’re looking for a fun and engaging way to keep your dog happy and healthy, a visit to Suffolk Dog Town is the perfect option! We offer a range of top-rated services and the best possible care for your pooch, and we’d love for you to come and see for yourself! Book online today or call 01473 743737 for more information.
