Each year, all reputable doggy daycares must apply for a licence to trade and we reapplied for ours at the end of last year. As of October 2018 the rules had become much more stringent and detailed. They now include a star rating similar to hotels and restaurants to ensure that all dogs attending any daycare are properly cared for and protected.
After an inspection visit PlayPaws has been awarded a FIVE STAR licence from the council. This is the highest endorsement any daycare can receive. The council’s licensing department looked at a range of standards, from cleanliness to staff ratios, from the range of stimulation for the dogs to the training of our staff. They were particularly impressed with our staff training and the knowledge they have of each individual dog. The five star rating means we continue to provide the excellent service you have come to expect from PlayPaws, and still aim to improve.
Vicky set up the business in 2015 as the first in East Lancashire. We know we are the biggest in the area, our size allows us to care for up to 50 dogs a day. And we have always held the belief that we are the best in the area. Now that we are rated by the council as a five star service that confidence has been confirmed. We are very proud of our status and I know you, our customers, will join us in celebrating such a wonderful achievement.
