Dog day care programs benefit owners’ dogs who lead busy lives and are unable to socialize and train their dogs. Owners benefit from a guilt-free day at work or play and can come home with a calm, relaxed pet. Dog day care offers the best of both worlds for dog and owner alike.
Dog daycare began in California in 1987 and has exploded into virtually every small town in America. Founded by dog lovers, owners apply the same principles of running a business combined with their love of dogs to create the ultimate day care business.
An article in the online magazine VetCentric.com described the benefits of day care for dogs as follows:
“The guiding principle behind dog daycare is simple – provide a safe and healthy atmosphere with plenty of interaction, both with other dogs and people. Dogs can participate in group games, gnaw on a favorite toy, hang out with people in the office, or just lounge on a couch and watch TV. The point is, they’re not home alone.”
Other benefits of doggy daycare include a social environment where dogs can play together, plenty of activity, an excellent release for energetic dogs, year-round daycare operation (excluding major holidays), attention from trained staff, and peace of mind for the working owner.
Dog daycares are mostly located in large, open spaces that have some size and temperament separation system. Most dog daycares also have an outdoor exercise area. Some daycares offer climbing furniture for dogs, agility equipment, and lots of toys.
Some things to consider when looking for a dog daycare center are the professionalism of the staff. Make sure they love dogs, know a lot about dog behavior and interact with those at the dog daycare every day. Also note the availability of space and “time out” areas for dogs that don’t get along. Make sure your dog is comfortable with air conditioning, warmth, and bedding. Also, check affordability and general dog daycare policies.
