Birthday present for doggy daycare

Two Shropshire entrepreneurs are proving dogs really are man’s best friend after they celebrated their fourth anniversary earlier this year with the completion of a £100,000 investment drive and a prestigious award.

K9 Anytime owners Tom Haynes and Luke Bird have transformed Cotsbrook Farm in Shifnal into a doggy daycare cenrte and luxury dog hotel.

It has responded to a rise in demand for its services since lockdown eased by creating eight new jobs, extending the offer to include an online store and a dog grooming salon.

The latter cost £30,000 to create, providing access to ‘walk-in’ forest green Indian marble baths, soft flow shower heads and exclusive use of industry leading products.

A year of growth has been capped with the facility becoming the first in the county to receive a 5-Star rating by Shropshire Council across all services following annual licensing inspections.

“The rating is equivalent to what a hotel would receive and confirms that we are the very best in our field, offering exceptional service and exceptional facilities with exceptional health and safety,” said Tom.

“When we started K9 Anytime, we wanted to create something truly unique that put dogs first and gave their parents peace of mind that they would be treated like they are at home."

K9 Anytime Doggy Daycare consists of two large and secure outdoor paddocks with agility and play equipment and an indoor play barn, as well as indoor daycare rooms complete with sofas and raised beds for downtime during the day.   

Luke Bird said: “We’ve come a long way in four years and now have a team of eleven looking after our dogs, running our online shop for natural dog food and treats and making the dogs look their very best with our pampering experience.”
