How to Make a Booking...

Before you book, we just wanted to ensure that everyone is adhering to the government guidance:


You should minimise time spent outside your home, but you can leave your home to exercise. This should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.

You can exercise in a public outdoor place:

  • by yourself

  • with the people you live with

  • with your support bubble (if you are legally permitted to form one)

  • in a childcare bubble where providing childcare

  • or, when on your own, with 1 person from another household"

This information has been taken directly from the Government website. If you booked an appointment before the latest lockdown updates and you feel that it would contradict with the aforementioned information, then please get in touch and we can arrange a refund. 

Booking is pretty simple. 

1. Choose which service you'd like. Either the 1-4 Dogs Session or the 5-6 Dogs Session. 

2. We've changed our rather confusing booking system to something a little more straightforward. 

3. Now all you need to do is simply pick your date and time. Then click 'next'. NB- At this point, a pop-up should open in another window. Please ensure that your internet settings allow 'pop-ups' from our website otherwise you won't be able to proceed any further.

4. You will then be asked to fill in your contact details before being forwarded onto the payment instructions. 

5. You will then see this payment instructions screen. If you have a PayPal account, you can simply log in at this stage and pay. If you don't have a PayPal account, don't worry because you can use the bottom option ("Pay by Debit or Credit Card") to make a one off payment without having to sign up to anything as long as you are booking on your laptop or PC. You will however, need a PAYPAL account if you intend to pay on your mobile phone. 

Please be aware that in the event of a refund being issued, PayPal take a 0.35p admin fee. More information about refunds and booking amendments can be found by clicking here

6. You'll then receive a confirmation email with your booking details. Please double check that you've got the time and date that you requested. 

7. If this is your first visit to Darling Dogs of May, then please be sure to read our online 'Induction' which can be found by clicking here

8. If you plan on using Google Maps to find us, we recommend typing in "The Darling Buds of May" which then should pull up the A339, Headley, Thatcham option. When you pull off the A339 down Hyde Lane, take the first, immediate right.
