Doggy Day Care

Ball fun at Day Care

Our new doggy day care and training centre, conveniently situated on South Church Enterprise Park in Bishop Auckland, is here for your every need, be it training, day care or just having fun with your dog. 

We now live in a world in which we care for the physical and emotional well-being of our pets as much if not more than our own, and in today’s busy world we can sometimes struggle to give our pets the exercise and undivided attention they need every day. At Betty Kisses, pets are our only business. We are dedicated to making the bond between you and your dog stronger by promoting peak fitness through consistent and exciting new ways to exercise and train your dogs. After eight years of running our Day Care Service from home we are very excited about the new opportunities the centre will bring.


You can never have too many doodles in a room

Doggy Day Care

The play areas for the dogs are designed to let the animals socialise in a safe, secure and supervised environment. Our clients (the dogs) receive a balanced regime with elements of exercise and play training throughout the day using a wide variety of activities. You will see the benefit starting from the first day you pick your dog up as they learn through exercise and healthy interaction and return home happy and tired.

We have lots of activities throughout the day to keep your dog engaged and active, balls to chase, ropes to tug and tunnels to hide in. Whilst we have all the classic equipment you expect to see at day care we also offer lots of enrichment activities to work your dogs mind as much as his body. Our outdoor adventures continue with countryside walks, visits to the nature reserve and local water spots included in their day as standard.
What we specifically wish to avoid is the impersonal, one size fits all approach to day care. Each dog is an individual and at Betty Kisses is treated as such. We can cater from young to old, crazy to cuddly and with space for time outs and naps what's not to like!
All dogs are assessed before joining the fun, this ensures we can be certain that every dog is happy in the Centre. Starting from their coming in the door and meeting us to meeting our 'nanny' dogs to entering the play areas, we will be watching their reactions to make sure they aren't stressed or over confident and that they will fit into the team. We always encourage good doggy manners; no over excitement, jumping up or bullying other dogs is allowed.
You can just give us a call or drop us a message to arrange an appointment to pop in and view the facilities.

Day Care Plus

We have had some excellent results working with dogs who come to our day care but not our training classes. So with this in mind it seems like a natural progression to offer a service specifically designed to help dogs and their owners with basic obedience issues and some behavioural issues.

Our daily regimen of structured walks and enrichment play coupled with regular training sessions leads to a happy healthy dog and a contented owner.

If your dog isn’t known to us an initial consultation will be needed to see what your needs are and to develop a learning plan for that dog. The owner is in control of this whole process, we can offer advice and guidance, all the benefits of 30 years experience of working and training dogs.


If your dog is new to us, the first day at school is the dogs introduction day and we will do nothing but get to know the dog and help it settle in. Normal day care pricing applies. Day Care Plus days can then commence. We will fit in up to five short training sessions a day all based around reward techniques, that can be food or toy, whatever the dog enjoys. We need the dog to want to work and there is no place for harsh treatment or training equipment that causes discomfort. We will send you video clips of the work we are doing and updates on your dogs progress.

Initial and follow up consultation fee: £20 per session

Day Care Plus: £35 per day
