Pets Belongings

We encourage you to bring in toys, bedding, food etc. To make your pets stay as comfortable as possible. We cannot however guarantee that the belongings will be returned in the same condition as they were received, in addition we do not accept any responsibility for your belongings whilst they are with us.

We do not accept food bowls, bean bags or collars, leads, harnesses etc.

Delivery & Collection Times

If for whatever reason, collection is late, due to delayed plane times, etc. Please try to inform the kennels and wherever possible make provisions for your pet’s collection. We ask that you will work with us and accept any extra charges this may incur. Charges will be in accordance with the kennel pricing at the time of boarding.

If for whatever reason your pet is not collected and you the owner have had no contact with the kennels to explain or extend the stay, your pet will be deemed as homeless after the 7th day after collection was initially due. You will subsequently be charged any additional boarding costs in addition to any costs involved with the re-homing of your pet.

Please try to abide by our check in and check out times. When we are able to be flexible we will be, however it is not always possible and we thank you for your understanding in this matter


All pets are exercised 4 times a day.

Pets can be either exercised individually or with other dogs of a similar nature. The latter option carries a risk, however every care will be taken when choosing which dogs to exercise with other dogs. If you choose this option, G.V.W. cannot be held responsible for any injuries caused, unless it was due to our negligence.

Pets can also be exercised on or off of the lead. No responsibility will be taken for dogs that are to be exercised off the lead, that do not have suitable recall skills

Leads & Collars

Here at GVW, we walk on our own rope slip leads, this enables staff to put on and take off leads with

the least fuss and invasion of the dogs sensitive neck area.

We also ask for all collars belonging to your dogs to be removed for safety reasons.

If you wish either for your collars to be left on during your pets stay or for your own collar/leads to be used on their walks, then you will be asked to sign a form.

By signing this form you accept that GVW have no responsibly for any loss of 

Day Creche

As well as offering overnight stays and stays for longer periods of time, we also offer a Day Creche service

Monday – Friday

As with our usual boarding service we offer 4 walks a day

These can be in small, supervised groups or if needs be alone with a member of staff, we appreciate all dogs are quite different and have vastly different needs.

We successfully look after most dogs that come to visit; however, we are unable to look after dogs that are aggressive towards our staff.

We have plenty of field space for dogs with good re-call to be able to stretch their legs, again and again.

We have a 40x20m wood chipped based ménage, with balls and jumps and tubes for dogs to have fun amongst.

We have an indoor astro turfed area for those horrible days when no-one wants to be outside. We have agility equipment in here, should like to try.

We have smaller enclosed areas where we can work on dogs re-call and/or simply for dogs to spend extra time out in the fresh air before their planned exercise session

We also have a stable yard, where some dogs like to help tidy the stables up and one stable is left full of fresh straw, that the dogs love to bury themselves in and search for balls.

Most importantly we have great employed staff to look after your pets

All walking takes place on our own property, so never a need to interact with dogs or people outside of the farm.

Unlike our longer boarding guests, trial stays of 48hrs are not required, as we can get an exceptionally good feel of your pet and their nature during the day creche stay.

We try to be as competitive as possible with our prices, whilst at the same time, trying to hand over a tired pooch at the end of the day for you to collect….that after all is what we are here for!

Outside of exercise and fresh air time, each dog has their own kennel system with fresh water and their belongings to help them feel comfortable. They need not share their toys or treats with anyone else and can chill at their leisure……and let’s face it a well exercised dog, is a calm, happy dog.

Again, as with our usual boarding service you can drop off between 7-7.30am and collect again at a slightly extended time of 5-6.30pm. (5-5.30pm for other than DC collections)

Our main gates are open only during the 30-minute time slot, however the extended pm collection, allows you a little more flexibility and you simply need to call the bell on arrival. Please be aware you may have a slight wait after 5.30pm, as staff will still be busy walking other dogs within our care…..we too like quiet, calm dogs at night.

Please drop an e mail or call the office to make an appointment to view and see the dogs in action.


Andrea & Team

Here is some feedback from some of the customers that use the service

Hi, my name is Rachel I have a three-year-old boxer dog called Stanley.

After certain circumstances at home I needed Stanley to be looked after while I went to work. Stanley being a very nervous dog who is very protective of me also doesn’t like other dog's, it was hard to find the right place.

Then I found Glebe Von Wood I explained to Andrea how Stanley is, and she was very understanding.

On the first day it was an extremely nervous situation for both of us. I was worried sick all day wondering how he would be with people he didn’t know.

To tell you the truth I worried more than him, he was fine, although it did take a few months to get used to it.

Stanley has been going to doggy day creche for over a year now and loving it.

I have seen such a change in him and always ready to have a rest when I pick him up.

I cannot recommend a better place, because as we all know all dogs are different.

Thank you again Andrea and team 😁🥰🥰🥰

Mabel has been going to day creche since she was about 6 months old, initially for a couple of days each week but now she goes every day.

She has even had some overnight stays too.

I know that she will be well looked after, fed and exercised, either exploring in the field, playing in the ménage or the barn if the weather's too bad.

She has lots of furry friends and is always making new ones, and she always comes home tired and happy!

The kennels are nice and clean, and the staff are all lovely. I would not want to use anywhere else.

Peach has been at crèche since she was 8 months old. She ‘baroooooos’ the length of Green Lane in excitement every morning. Peach greets everyone (humans and dogs) with affection. She is happy, safe and cared for thanks to a wonderful team that know her well x


I’m Amber, Glebe Von Wood Material Girl or Ambi Pambi to my favs at day crèche

I love running in long grass, being wet and muddy, a bit of digging and ear tickles.

I come to crèche 4-5 days a week. Drop off is quick and easy, one of my favs comes to collect me from the car, I feel so special I give big wag tails and Mum is them off to work in minutes. I trot off to my kennel for my day of fun.

Most days I go for walks in the field but if the weathers bad I get to play ball in ménage or the barn. I always get ear tickles too.

Mum collects me each evening on her way home from work unless I am doing sleepovers. If mum has to pop out in the evening when we get home I’m ok with a big sleep to dream about my day and get ready for tomorrow, it can wear you out watching what’s going on all day.

If your human does this work thing don’t stay at home looking at the kitchen cupboards, come join us xx

Our four year old Labradoodle, Chester, has been using the Glebe Von Wood day crèche service for around 2 or 3 days a week since he was a young puppy.

He absolutely loves it and his excitement starts at the bottom of Green Lane when he knows he is going to spend the day with his friends, both doggy and human. This fits in perfectly with our schedule as we can drop Chester off on the way to work at around 8.00am and can pick him up on our way home at around 5.00pm.

The kennels are clean and secure and it gives us peace of mind that Chester will be safe, fed and looked after during the day. He clearly gets loads of exercise, as when we get him home he usually is too tired to do anything, other than sleep.

Another benefit of the day crèche service is that when he have to kennel Chester for holiday periods, we have no worries at all as we know he is in familiar surroundings and he knows the routine and Andrea and the other staff that look after him so well.

So, if you do choose to use the Glebe Von Wood day crèche service, ask for you and your pooch to be introduced to Chester. He'll let you know where the doggy treats are hidden. Shhh!

Colin & Julie


I have been using Glebe Von Wood day crèche for last 2 years for my previous dog Milo and now for my dog Liffy who has been coming since she was 3 months old. Liffy is a Schnauzer X.

It works so well for me because I work full time and I don’t like leaving Liffy for long periods of time on her own at home.

I can drop Liffy off from 07.00 in the morning and pick her up in the evening before 18.45, safe in the knowledge that Andrea and her staff will look after Liffy as I would at home.

Liffy has clean and safe environment to sleep in, gets regular walks and exercise in the ménage or in the vast open spaces available at the farm, interaction and play with other dogs and provided with 2 healthy and balanced meals a day with fresh water always available.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Day crèche at Glebe Von Wood, If Liffy is happy then I’m happy.

Molly has been attending day crèche for over 18 months now at least one day a week.

She loves it there and is treated very well. All the staff are friendly helpful and clearly dog lovers!

The day crèche facility enables Molly to have fulfilling days instead of being "home alone".

The drop off and collection times are convenient and the facilities are always clean.

Mel Walker

Our two German Shepherds – Ruby and Inca – love the doggy day care at Glebe Farm. They are waiting by the front door ready to go each morning, and race in the gates when they get there.

They go every day in term time, and it is so reassuring to know they are not home bored, but enjoying their day with all their dog and human friends on the farm.

The staff are wonderful with them, and they come home worn out after a busy day. We would definitely recommend it to any dog owners.

Philip and Rhonda Dean

I have been using GVW Day Creche for the past 2 months and find the service there to be great. I work just up the road and GVW have been very accomdating of my working situation.

More importantly Colin (my Labrador), seems to really enjoy his time there and no longer has to endure the boredom of being at home alone.

He is a happier dog, enjoys the stimulation of socialising with other dogs and always comes home with me at the end of the day tired and satisfied.

Now that Colin is at GVW, he gets the freedom and exercise that every dog deserves and I feel so much more relaxed knowing he is being looked after well and no longer panicking about getting home to find holes in my walls caused by his boredom.

I will definitely be using GVW for the foreseeable future.



Echo and Shadow ages 2 and 4 take advantage of the day crèche facilities and thoroughly enjoy their time. This will be the 3rd year that I have used this service.

With working full time and long hours at times, it gives me peace of mind and takes the guilt away to know they are in experienced and safe hands.

They both like to play as well as explore so having regular access to the fields for exercise means they stay fit and content.

They have a very good relationship with the kennel staff and can't wait to leap out of the car in the mornings on their arrival. This contact also means they do not have any stress staying when I go on holiday as they are used to the surroundings and daily routine.

They are definitely happy and healthy pets.

This photograph is a typical morning when they wait in the car for me to get a move on to take them to the farm!

Daisy's been to the day creche every week since she was about six months. She's very well looked after and the kennels are always clean.

I drop her off on the way to work & know that when I collect her she'll have been fed & had her walks & she's always tired, which is great!

She's also had a few over night stays & because she knows the place & everyone there I don't have to worry about leaving her.
