Dog Rules

Well behaved small/medium breed dogs are welcome,

however we do ask that guests follow the few rules set out below.

These rules are in place to ensure we maintain a level of comfort and health and safety for all the guests residing at Squirrel Lodge.

Please call us to let us know if you wish to bring a dog with you and we can discuss options.


 No dogs under 12 months old!

 Please put your dog on a lead when entering Squirrel Lodge.

 Dogs are not to be left alone in the bedrooms at ANY time.

 Please do not allow your dog to jump on the beds OR furniture as we may have to charge extra for cleaning.

Dogs are welcome in the dining room, however if other guests are uncomfortable with this we may need to stagger your breakfast time or ask you to leave your dog in the room, if you are comfortable with this. 

Because of dog food smells ONLY dried dog food to be fed while in the bedroom. If you use tinned dog food, please feed your dog outside.

Please inform us of any accidents which may happen, immediately. We understand these things happen from time to time but would appreciate if you inform us ASAP.

Please make sure your dog is dry before going to your room.

As a precaution, we insist that all dogs are treated for tick and fleas at least 1 week before you leave home, e.g. Frontline, just as any reputable dog kennel would require.

Your dog will appreciate a walk last thing at night before you go to bed and first thing in the morning before you have your breakfast. There is a local park in very close proximity to Squirrel Lodge. Please ask for directions and we will be happy to advise you. Poop bags are available upon request as well as doggy treats kept in the entrance hallway.

Should any damage be sustained to Squirrel Lodge Guest House or should there be the requirement for industrial level cleaning to the guest bedrooms, charges will be incurred by the dog owner
