Doggie Daycare-While You're Away, the Dogs Will Play!

Posted: 6/18/2012

You know the look. It's Monday morning and those big, sad eyes stare up at you, begging you not to leave. You've had a fun weekend at home with your dog, and now he or she is sad to be left alone while you're at work. Fortunately, there is an alternative to leaving your four-legged friend home alone for eight hours.

Our Doggie Daycare program is open every day to relieve your guilt and give your dog some fun socialization. With the supervision of our daycare providers, your dog will be able to interact with dogs of all sizes and ages, and also enjoy some resting time.

Doggie Daycare is a great solution for bored, lonely, or high-energy dogs whose owners have to leave them for work. Sometimes dogs will act out if they are upset about being left, or they could experience significant mood swings. Boredom and excess energy are two of the main causes of behavior problems in most dogs.

Benefits of Doggie Daycare:

  • Relief from boredom and loneliness (reducing risk of separation anxiety)
  • Socialization with different people and dogs
  • Healthy amount of exercise
  • Prevention of destructive behavior while the dog is left alone
  • Elimination of owners' guilt for leaving their furry friend at home for the day

Although Doggie Daycare can be a great option for some dogs, it isn't right for all dogs. If you have an older dog that is used to his or her routine, he or she might be happier to stay home and rest in peace. Your dog may be happier to stay at home and rest if they fit any of the following:

  • Unvaccinated puppies
  • Unneutered males or females in heat
  • Aggressive dogs
  • Undersocialized dogs

If your dog is a regular at the dog park and does well with other dogs and people, then Doggie Daycare will likely be a wonderful experience for him or her. Younger dogs do better at adjusting to the Doggie Daycare environment, as they are often less anxious and have more energy.

Instead of being greeted at the end of your long day by a dog with pent-up energy, your four-legged friend will be ready to relax with you all evening. Keep your pet happy during the day and relieve yourself from guilt and check out our Doggie Daycare program today!
