Highest Standards in
Healthcare & Ethics
At the Canine Cottage we diligently follow the Animal Welfare Act 2006 which puts a duty of care on all people permanently or temporarily caring for animals. Ensuring as much as possible that the health, safety and welfare of the animal is top priority at all times.
This is done by following the Five Animal Needs:
- Need for a suitable environment
- Need for a suitable diet
- Need to exhibit normal behavior patterns
- Need to be housed appropriately
- Need to be protected from pain, injury, suffering and disease
We do not routinely use cages in our salon. Your dog will be free to move around with access to outside. All areas are secure and risk free. The only time we use a bedded cage is for health reasons such as isolating a dog that has become unwell allowing it to rest comfortably until collected by its owner.
NO CAGE DRIERS
We do not use cage driers on dogs. This method of drying has potential dangers and discomfort for the dog which we will not expose them to. All of our dogs are lovingly hand dried.
