Exercise is important for your dogs well being, the dogs are exercised in fully fenced grass paddocks, they are let out into these paddocks at frequent intervals throughout the day. Extra walks can be provided for an extra cost. You are very welcome to bring any treats, toys, bedding, blankets etc with your dog, whatever it takes to make them feel at home.

Laura studied Animal Care at Bishop Burton Agricultural College for four years and graduated with a National Diploma in Animal Care and a Higher National Diploma in animal care (zoology and behavioural science). While working in a prestigious boarding kennel establishment in England she became a qualified dog hydrotherapist and opened a very successful pool.
Laura owned a horse, which she has owned for 25 years, he sadly passed away in 2020 at the grand old age of 32. Sunny was his name but Laura gave him a nickname of Merrylegs after the little cheeky pony on black beauty. The name stuck and when the family were trying to think of a name for the business they decided to name it after Sunny aka Merrylegs. Sunny's legacy will always live on with us.
Merrylegs Logo is a picture of one of Laura´s water dogs Harry. He was an amazing dog and is champion in over 10 different countries. Harry also sadly passed away in 2020 so using him as our logo means we will always remember him and honor him.
