Cally Wags is a home from home so you must visit us first.
A free no obligation consultation provides you with the opportunity to make sure you approve. Our priority is to provide a furry personalised home from home experience. Taster time is provided before your first stay to support familiarisation with Cally Wags home environment. A transition plan is provided if you need more help to manage new environments.
A Cally Wags registration pack is provided at your first visit.
You must have a current vaccination record which includes Kennel Cough along with a vet approved flea and worming programme.
You should wear a suitable fitted collar and identity tag when in public (The Control of Dogs Order, 1992). Leads, collars, harnesses must be in good condition and fit correctly for your safety and you must be microchipped.
A Cally Wags Identity tag provides an additional safety measure when your with us.
If there is one thing I love is a good towel rub when I get back home from a wet adventure. Even when I was really scared I quite liked a nice towel rub. Not too intense though, it has to be just so. Cally Wags want to get it right for you. So please tell us about routines which are important to you and help to make you comfortable. It's the little things that count right?
More important are treats. I didn't really appreciate what treats meant until I met my new family and watched Sammy do 'tricks for treats'. So Cally Wags understand different pets have different dietary needs and that treats are another serious discussion for us to have if we are going to look after you the right way.
I worry about most toys but I love my 'Chewy Bonio' and love a Kong. Some of my friends are very serious about different toys and games and socks seem to be quite popular in my experience! Although I can worry about some toys and games, my mum and dad have always helped me to find different ways to play safe and have fun and of course my favourite game is always 'find it'. Cally Wags will need to know what you think is fun and how you like to occupy your time.
We walk and play in all weather as long as it is safe and furry customers are happy. We have lots of different places we like to explore and have different adventures to suit young and old or perhaps I should say wise. In extreme weather, adventures may have to be shorter or cancelled. I can struggle if places are too busy and noisy. Cally Wags will need to know what is important for you when you go out.
With a calm and patient approach I have come to appreciate the benefits of travel. Cally Wags priority is that you travel safely and feel comfortable. If you have your own harness Cally Wags would prefer you use this however, we can provide one if necessary. The Cally Wagon has a spacious protected boot area and seat coverings, is fitted with a pet guard and is air conditioned. If we travel together then we walk together. Dogs are never left waiting in the Cally Wagon when out on adventures.
Sometimes I am that brave now I can go leadless! Only in places where I feel okay and of course if my mum and dad agree as I'm very good at 'selective hearing' like some of my friends. Cally Wags walks are mainly on lead. Owners are welcome to give consent for off lead, however, even with consent for off lead, Cally Wags will only consider off lead walking with dogs who are well familiarised at Cally Wags. This is only in places where it is safe to do so with full line of sight and only if trust and reliable recall are clearly established.
Below is a useful link to view if you want to know more about good practice guidelines we follow when out and about with our furry holidaymakers.
I might look innocent but I am certainly brave enough to get into mischief! I try my 'what me?' look but they know me too well now. As much as I hate to say it, you must tell Cally Wags about the different things you might get up to or the behaviours you need help with. I can be worried about new people, so we have to make sure people understand I need time to feel okay about saying hello and can be a bit of a drama about it if I'm honest. And sometimes like lots of my friends, I like to be a bit cheeky just because I can!
As you can see some of my friends have helped to make our website a bit more interesting to view with some wonderful snaps of their time at Cally Wags. They have all given their permission for their photos to be used and understand that Cally Wags will not use images of our furry customers without owner consent. Your personal information is not shared with third parties without prior consent and is strictly confidential.
Note: not needed as this rule is very clear.
Note: Cally Wags furry arrivals and departures lounge (see our staying with us page) helps to ensure arrivals and departures are always supported carefully. It can be a rather exciting time for some of our furry holiday makers and very unsettling for others.
Note: children by arrangement only and let's face it, owners can get pretty unruly sometimes so better to be safe than sorry!
Cally Wags ensure positive interaction and healthy play with careful introduction and familiarisation for all furry holidaymakers.
You only share space when you are ready and not before. Even furry sociable types appreciate a bit of peace and quiet at some point and if you want your own exclusive space, you got it.
Remember, it's your holiday your way!

Cally Wags Terms of Service are provided during the initial consultation.
I think I've covered the most important things from a furry perspective but tell your owners they can contact us if they have any questions.
