Benefits of Doggy Daycare
Dog daycare provides your canine companion with the physical activity, socialization and supervision they need. A professional, well-run dog daycare offers many advantages for dogs and pet owners who work all day and don’t want their dogs to be alone. Dog daycare alleviates boredom and loneliness, and can offer a safe, interactive and fun, cage-free outlet for high-energy dogs.
Dogs are typically dropped off at daycare in the morning and picked up at the end of the workday. Many owners say they find their dogs pleasantly tired and ready to relax for the rest of the evening. At our daycare we always recommend they are dropped off first on their first day. This will help elevate some of the first day jitters as well as provide your pup the opportunity to meet all the dogs individually rather than walking into a room of 20 other pups!
Throughout history, dogs have been bred as working animals, for hunting, livestock herding, protection or guarding. Most domesticated dogs perform no tasks. Those that spend little time exercising often have pent up energy that leads to behavioral problems. Our daycare makes sure to activate these instincts by doing “Pack Training” throughout the day. Pack Training consists of basic sit, stay, down, etc. For more advanced dogs we will go into multi-step training, scent games, and spacial awareness.
Whether you’re at work, heading out on vacation or a business trip, here are just a few benefits doggy daycare offers:
Exercise: Dog daycare provides much-needed exercise and socialization for your pooch. From regular walks and playing fetch to open run time, daily exercise is vital.
Human Interaction: Your dog relies on your attention and support each day. Since your pal is so accustomed to human interaction, he or she will feel quite lonely without it. At dog daycare, there will be qualified staff there to keep your pet entertained and happy.
Playtime: Most dogs enjoy playing with other puppies. Dog daycare provides an opportunity for your pal to socialize with other pets in a controlled, supervised environment. Owners themselves often struggle with properly supervising playtime, but licensed professionals will know just what to do to keep everything under control.
Boredom Relief: Understandably, you don’t want to leave your dog cooped up all the time indoors. Dog daycare provides some much-needed boredom relief for your furry friend, whether you’re headed for vacation or just want to ensure your dog is taken care of while you’re at the office.
Peace Of Mind: It’s easy to feel guilty about leaving your dog in a kennel, or with a friend who may not have the time or energy to give your pal the exercise and attention he or she deserves. By bringing your canine to dog daycare, you can rest easy.
