STAY N Play, the day care centre for dogs celebrated its first birthday on Tuesday.

The Doggy Day Care Centre in Dale Industrial Estate, Phoenix Way, has gone from strength to strength since opening in September 2016.

They provide dog training services, a day care centre and grooming services

Co-owners, Luke Millington and Jason Morgan, have worked hard over the year to build a community of customers who they see as a second family.

Luke Millington said: “On day one we opened our doors to two paying customers, determined to make a name for ourselves locally for all the right reasons. One year later we accommodate more than 35 dogs each day, and have amassed over one thousand Facebook likes.”

In order to say thank you to their customers, the duo hosted a 1st birthday bash at the Radcliffe Food Market.

More than 80 guests were treated to Prosecco, cupcakes and dog treats to take home.

They also held a raffle with prizes donated from family and friends, to raise money for their nominated charity, Manchester Dogs Home, successfully raising a whopping £900.
