are you considering doggy daycare

Long day of errands that just have to get done? Is that deadline at work keeping you there until the late hours of the night? No time to go home over your lunch break? Whatever the case may be, if you are not home for most of a day, you may want to consider putting your pup in doggy daycare while you are out. There are many benefits for you and your dog by putting them in the hands of responsible “dogsitters”.
The benefits for you are quite simple: you won’t need to worry or stress about your dog if you take them to daycare. Chances are, if you are staying late at work to finish a project for deadline, then you are already stressed and busy enough. No need to add more stress by worrying if your pup has enough food and water or has been outside. If you are out running errands, leaving them at daycare will allow you to get everything done and checked off your to-do list. I don’t know about you, but if I don’t accomplish everything on my to-do lists, then that’s stressful enough, let alone wondering if my dog is hungry. Leaving your pet at daycare instills peace of mind that everything is being taken care of.
There are plenty of benefits for your pet also. Generally, when your pup is there for the day, there is no cage time. Commonly, dogs are allowed to run around outside without having to be put in a kennel, as they might be if they were left at home. Allowing the dogs to run around outside together lets your dog become more social and adapt to being around other dogs of various sizes. A friendly dog is a happy dog, and a happy dog makes for a content pet owner.
Secondly, taking your dog to a daycare allows them to be physical and exercise with other dogs. This is great for you because after a long day of errands or working late, you and your pup can cuddle up and relax together since you both could be exhausted from a long day. When a dog has to be at home by himself, there’s a chance he could destroy things around the house that aren’t toys, such as the couches, shoes, or electronics. A dog is less likely to get into trouble when being watched or playing with other dogs.
It’s wise to check out the daycare before dropping your dog off at one so you can get an idea of the workers there, the set up of the place, and the other dogs.
