The Beneficial Effects of Daycare
When you leave for the day, do you worry your dog is lonely? Getting into trouble? Not getting enough exercise? Experts agree daycare is the perfect solution for pets and their parents, providing all the mental and physical stimulation dogs need to stay healthy and happy.
- Pet obesity is an extremely common ailment. Dogs often don’t get all the exercise they need to stay healthy. Daycare is a constructive, supervised place for your pet to run, play, and get all the exercise they need for a happy body (and mind!).
- When dogs get bored, they can get destructive. Without supervision and engagement, the dining room chair or expensive shoes look tasty. Daycare provides a mentally-engaging outlet for your pet to spend his energy. No more chewed shoes, holes in the yard, or all-day barking marathons!
- Dogs are social creatures, but they aren’t born fully-socialized. In our daycare camp and day boarding, dogs can spend time around other dogs and people in a totally safe environment. This satisfies your dog’s pack animal nature and teaches him how to act around other pets and humans.
For those pets that like playing with other dogs, we offer a thorough temperament evaluation process. Our highly-trained staff will observe your pets’ interactions with other friendly dogs to determine their compatibility with a social environment and choose the right playgroup for them. This keeps all our guests safe, happy, and having as much fun as possible!
Puppy Day Boarding
Puppies have special needs beyond that of an adult dog. Our Puppy Day Boarding places heavy emphasis on socialization, desensitization, and exposure to new things during your puppy’s critical learning. Another popular puppy option is Puppy Academy (link to training page). Call us to find out more!
