Our dogs have always been members of our family. We know how tough it is leaving your furry friend somewhere new. We also know how amazing it feels to be able to relax and enjoy being away knowing they are having as much fun (and maybe more) fun than you.
Here at Wicklow Pet Hotel, we offer luxury accommodation for small and medium dogs. After 12 years in the pet minding arena, we have so much knowledge of what dogs need to have a stress-free and enjoyable experience on their holiday. Most important is plenty of time to play chase or ball with the other dogs, or simply potter and explore, always in the company of our experienced Pet Hotel team.
Our doggie accommodation is in our large back garden. The chalets are built in a courtyard design, all facing onto one of our three play areas. Each timber chalet is insulated, heated, tiled and painted and are of varying sizes. Each has a sliding access door to a covered outdoor area.
Our play areas have either real or artificial grass. We have lots of pools, a new doggie deck, a digging den, an obstacle course and lots of areas to explore.
We can separate our doggie guests into small groups if needed. We often have a group of puppies staying, so they may have one area to themselves to play chasing together, and not be bumping into some of our older guests. The play areas allow great flexibility.
Each play area has a huge range of toys, teddies and tennis balls available. In addition to free play, the morning’s activities include playing fetch and ‘treat time’. Our canine kitchen is always open so our guests can potter in and out or come and take a nap under the sink. This provides a real ‘home away from home’ feel for our guests, who are almost exclusively dogs who live indoors with their family.
We specialise in minding medium and small dogs who get along well together such as Cockapoos, Cavapoos, Cavaliers, Bichons, Maltese, Shih Tzus, Yorkies, Jack Russells, Westies, Pugs, Mini Schnauzers, Pomeranians, Chihuahuas, Daschund and small and medium mixed breeds.
Some dogs, just by their nature may not be suited to this type of free play.
