Doggy daycare benefits both you and your pet!
If you have never opted for doggy daycare, you have probably heard about it. This is a pet care option that has become rather popular over recent years. Dog owners enjoy it because their dogs are able to interact and play with other dogs, as well as people throughout their day. The dogs like it because it is simply a ton of fun.
A Healthy Option
Doggy daycare is considered a healthy and enjoyable option for dogs. It is an alternative to crating or hiring a dog walker to come into the home and walk the dog during the day. Some dog owners bring their dogs to daycare nearly every single day, while others bring their furry friend once in a while. Some do it just because they want to give their dog a special treat or change up their routine a bit. It is a great alternative to a kennel.
There are so many good reasons to choose daycare for dogs. It helps them socialize and that is something that is important since dogs are pack animals. However, domestic dogs rarely get to be in a pack, if at all. As a result of this, some dogs can become dog-aggressive or they may be fearful of other dogs. Dog daycare allows them to play with other dogs in a way that is natural for them. It also keeps your dog healthy because they are active. A good doggy daycare will offer many activities for your pooch so that he or she will be fitter and stronger than if they were left at home all day by themselves.
A Happy dog
When considering for a dog daycare, you do want to look at the experience of the staff, the facility, how many individuals will be working with your dog, and even see what others have to say through reviews and testimonials. Check out the potty area, if there is a vet on call, and ask about how new dogs are introduced to the regulars. Good heating and cooling is also important and simply request a tour of the facility so you can check all of the aforementioned items, as well as cleanliness of the facility.
When you see that the facility has all that your dog needs to have a great day while you are at work, running errands, or taking care of other matters, you can rest assured that your canine friend will be taken care of.
All in all, dog daycare is good for you and your pet. A well-socialized dog is one that is happy and is a joy for others to be around. Many owners have commented on what a pleasure it is to pick up a dog that is relaxed and wagging their tail because they had such a great time. The alternative is coming home to 10 hours of pent-up doggy energy that has to be expelled somehow. Sometimes the way dogs expend that energy is not always pleasant for the owner.
