Fox Cottage

For little dogs that are big on having fun Fox Cottage is the ultimate day out.

Designed specifically with smaller breeds in mind, our garden at Fox Cottage is packed full of sights, smells and activities. Your dog will spend the day with little friends. Get on board the big bus, splash in the paddling pools, climb up into the playhouse. Lots of outdoor action, but also lots of cosy spots sheltered spots for indoor play.

Tiny dogs - there will be some special doors that only you can fit through - take a peek and see where they take you!  And shy dogs and newbies can also opt to hang out with our wonderful team if they prefer human friends.
The garden is super secure - a triple-gated entrance, high fences, and dig-proof mesh around the perimeter.

We operate whatever the weather and do not accept cancellations due to weather conditions. A full day charge will be applied if you choose not to send your dog.

Getting amongst it
We operate whatever the weather. so you might want to invest in a dog jacket if your dog has a thin coat, feels the cold or fur that stays wet once it gets wet. 
Coats that cover the chest and under the tummy and are lightweight are ideal. Most importantly they need to be comfortable to play in. If your dog really feels the cold, add a snug layer under their jacket on those wintery days. Please name all items.
Breed and behaviour
Your dog will need to be social (they will be sharing a cage in the dog van), and have basic obedience skills such as sit and come. 

Aggressive or dominant dogs are unfortunately not suited to Boom Rock Dogs. Due to noise restrictions, dogs who bark persistently may not be able to attend. ​


Male dogs aged over 8 months must be neutered, and un-speyed females kept at home while on heat.
All dogs must be vaccinated for Parvo, Distemper, Hepatitis and Kennel Cough. If your dog is receiving a long term vaccination such as DHP, please note you will still need an annual booster shot for Kennel Cough. Your dog should also be flea-treated regularly, and should ideally be registered with your local council. 

We can take pups from 14 / 16 weeks - once they've had their full course of 3 vaccinations. We can feed your pup a midday meal if needed - you'll just need to supply it in a well sealed, named container at collection.
And it's a bit like kindergarten - if your dog is sick or is contagious please keep them at home.
We strongly recommend pet insurance for all of our customers.
