RBC Pet Care offers flexible and personalised solutions to customers living in Banbury and the surrounding villages.
Dog Day Care
If you face a long day at work and are worried about getting back on time or your dog is destructive if left for long periods, why not try our Day Care service? We normally collect your dog between 8.15am and 9.15am and make sure they have walks and company while you are away, returning them home again between 4pm and 5pm. In exceptional circumstances we may be able to keep them later for a small charge.
Our dogs are walked at safe locations away from traffic and livestock. These include walks over the countryside on permitted pathways, in our rented field and in our securely fenced paddocks. Your dog may be longlined to start with whilst we work with them to build a bond and a reliable recall around distractions e.g. wildlife, cyclists, other dogs etc. We collect your eager dog and drop them home again happy, tired and mud free!
We offer home boarding to our regular day-care customers. For a small additional charge we can keep them overnight during the week if you are going to be late back from work. If you are going on holiday or a shorter weekend break your dog can stay with us in our home while you are away.
