Dog Day Care and Behavioural Service

Dog Day Care and Behavioural Service

What We Do

TweedDogs are based just outside Lilliesleaf, on 7.226 acres of land with 2 acres of fully enclosed, dog proofed exercise area. This is split into five play/activity areas including a sensory garden, parkour, exercise and training zones; and rest and free work area “Caroline’s Corner” in our 1800 sq ft building.  This, plus, over 5 acres of walkway for on-lead dog walks.  

We offer the dogs space to run, space to play, space to learn and space to quietly sleep… at their own pace…. with lots of human contact and cuddles from our experienced and qualified staff. We  have a qualified behaviourist and a scientific and veterinary medical student amongst our staff.

How it Works


TweedDogs offer dog behavioural modification advice sessions and Be the Perfect Puppy Parent training on a 1 to 1 basis.  If you don’t understand why your dog behaves the way he/she does, or would like help with training, we can help. 


TweedDogs are delighted to be working alongside Salina, of Suds N Scissors to offer owners a full grooming service.  Dogs can now attend daycare and go home having been fully pampered, and smelling divine.


Home pick ups/drop offs available from Galashiels, St Boswells, Newtown St Boswells, Melrose, Hawick and Selkirk. Spaces are limited. All dogs require to have an initial TRIAL DAY at the centre prior to admittance.

Trial Days 

The trial day is mandatory as part of our assessment process and involves new dogs being allocated a single member of staff who will be solely responsible for the dogs’ supervision. This usually takes the form of the staff member spending the first hour or so bonding with the new dog(s), followed by a gentle introduction to suitable chosen ‘playmates’ until such point as the new dog is completely comfortable. 

If during the introductions, a dog shows signs of anxiousness we will either go back to square one and start the process again, or remove one or more dogs to the point where the new dog is again comfortable.  Some dogs quite happily join into a group almost immediately, however, others take time and patience. Puppies in particular will continue to need more time and care and will at all times be placed in small groups with mostly calmer, older dog

Dog Day Care

We offer the dogs space to run, space to play, space to learn and space to quietly sleep at their own pace, with lots of human contact and cuddles from our experienced and qualified staff.

Dog Walking

We take the dogs on walks together. Assuming everyone is getting on well with each other and that every dog is going to benefit from a group walk, we walk your dog with up to three other pals from their group.




We offer a 1to1 dog training and behavioural modification service.  Please contact us for further details.

Carolines Corner

Fab Fun for Pooches

Caroline’s Corner, is a free work area where we work 1 to 1 with a dog as they use their senses to explore, smell, seek out toys and treats and experience different objects and textures – all to mentally engage and calm them. This area is dedicated to a wonderful lady, Caroline Euman, whose love of dogs  (and all animals/birds  in fact) inspired us to create it.

“My pup kilo was there today and by looks of the pictures he has had a great time, he’s came back tired and chilled out. He will definitely be back, highly recommended – great communication about how he’s doing on 1st day, thanks all at Tweeddogs, brilliant crew!

  • 5 star review  Our boy absolutely loves going to Tweeddogs. He's always excited when he gets there and tired out after playing all day when he gets home. We love seeing the pictures of what he has been up to and who he's been playing when they are posted. Laura, Helen and the team do an amazing job - highly recommended!
