Plans for new East Yorkshire doggy daycare unveiled

Plans for a new doggy daycare on farmland in Swanland, East Yorkshire, have been lodged with East Riding Council.

The plans state the centre would cater for up to 40 dogs to exercise for half a day or a full day.

If the plans are approved the centre would stand alongside the landowners’ two existing dog walking fields, which have taken more than 15,000 bookings in the past 18 months.

The centre would employ five full-time staff to take care of the dogs who would have play equipment to use in the 1.7ha field, with two cabins providing shelter, which was previously used for horse grazing.

In addition, the field would be enclosed by a 1.9m-high timber and wire mesh perimeter fence, and the centre’s yard would be lit by floodlights during winter and monitored by CCTV. The plans also include a car park with room for up to 10 vehicles, with access to the site on an existing track off Dale Road.

Plans stated: “This will give owners an opportunity to drop off their dogs and be able to go to work knowing they are in a stimulating environment interacting with other dogs. It is an attractive alternative option for dog owners which would in turn reduce the number of dogs being walked in public areas.”

The centre would be open from 7am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday and would be closed on weekends and bank holidays.
