We get asked this a lot. The fact is, there are so many good reasons to use daycare services for your dog. Here are just a few:
First and most importantly, Daycare helps dogs to socialize. Dogs are funda mentally pack animals, and learning peaceful play with other dogs is one of the best ways to ensure that they become a happy, friendly and well-balanced dog.
Being in a social environment with other dogs will alleviate the boredom, isolation, loneliness and sometimes separation anxiety often associated with dogs left alone at home while their owners are at work, which can lead to negative, destructive and dangerous behaviours. Dogs are excellent trainers of other dogs, and being part of a pack environment will be fun, stimulating and formative for your pet.
Just like for humans, routine and structure are good for dogs. They very much enjoy habit and routine. Dogs are very environment-sensitive. Getting your dog into a regular daycare routine provides consistency and familiarity with his/her environment, knowing who and what to expect, when and how to play, and how to behave.
We always say, “A tired dog is a good dog.” Our canine friends need exercise! While a one-hour daily walk is essential, it’s not always easy to find the time. Daycare provides hours of play and exercise for your pet, so he or she will go home tired and happy.
Peace of Mind
Daycare provides a caring, safe and clean environment for your dog, which in turn provides you, the owner, with peace of mind, knowing that your pet is receiving the qualified supervision, love and attention they need when they can’t be with you.
This is Canada. We have weather! Who wants to walk their dog during a rain storm, or through a foot of snow, or salty, slushy sidewalks or even in 30° heat? Daycare offers a clean, dry, climate-controlled environment so you don’t have to worry about braving the elements to give your dog the exercise he or she needs. And there’s no risk of muddy paws or a coat full of burrs!
While weighing the benefits, compared to the cost of professional dog walkers, trainers, or that new pair of shoes that may get chewed up because your puppy is bored, daycare is actually very affordable.
