You just started a 40 hour per week job and now you and your husband are working full-time to support each other and your canine cutie as well. Although you admit that the extra money will be nice, you still can’t help but feel really guilty about leaving your pooch alone for so many hours during the week. You begin to talk to your clique about it and your pal recommends that you sign your precious pup up for doggy daycare. You’re in shock that such a service even exists; this is your first dog after all.
You immediately start researching doggy daycares and you come to find that they are actually pretty affordable. They run anywhere from $9 - $40 per day. Unless, of course, you’re dog is celebrity status - celebrities sometimes admit their pooches into luxurious day camps that start at $100 a day! However, you’re pup doesn’t need sparkling water in his dish, so the average, middle-class America doggy day cares will work for you.
There are public and private doggy daycares. If your dog is more social, and loves to interact with other dogs, then a public doggy daycare may be perfect for him. However, if you’re pooch is more reserved, or elderly, you may want to invest in a private doggy daycare. There are less dogs at private daycares and they get more one-on-one attention.
Public daycares have trained staff that can play games and have activities planned for your dog. This will give your dog a great workout compared to the alternative; being cooped up on your couch staring at the front door waiting for your arrival. Then, when you come home after your exhausting day at the office, your dog will be tired out too! This allows you to spend some quality, relaxing time with your dog as you unwind into the night. The staff at doggy daycares are really well trained. They know exactly what to do if your puppies begin to show signs of aggression. Also, many times there is an on-call vet that works with the daycare in the case of an emergency. This is comforting for many pet parents to know that their pets are taken care of; even in an emergency. Dogs are also screened for infectious diseases before being admitted into the day care. This helps keep out doggy illnesses so the dogs that play together are all healthy.
Finding a doggy daycare should be fairly easy, especially with all of the online tools available these days. All you really need to do is just pull up Google and Google will do the rest! You can also check your local newspaper, classifieds, or your local pet store for suggestions. You also may want to check with your place of employment. Many times, they offer discounts to their pet-loving employees at the local doggy daycare. Asking your friends that have pets is also a great idea. They will be able to recommend nice places where your dog will be well taken care of and safe.
