Six Benefits of Doggy Daycare

For those wondering whether doggy daycare is an option for their pooch during the daytime, we've put together a few reasons why you should consider it. 

Doggy Daycare Keeps Dogs Safe

Think of it like childcare. It's a safe place to bring your pup to get care throughout the day, where they can have playtime, cuddles, and even naps!

Belly Scratches Galore!

Dogs love receiving tender loving care and people who run doggy daycares love to give them that TLC! You can be happy knowing while that you’re away, your dog is getting their fill of belly rubs and head scratches.

Lessens separation anxiety

They will also never be lonely! When you leave your pup home alone all day, they can turn to some destructive behaviors to work out separation anxiety. Ever said goodbye to your favorite pair of shoes before?

It will tire them out

Plenty of space, toys, and friends at doggy daycare will tire out your dog. When you get home, they'll be ready to curl up, rather than having all-night zoomies.

It Brings You Peace Of Mind

Speaking of home -- another benefit of doggy daycare is that you won't have to allow strangers into your house to take them on walks. Plus, peace of mind comes from knowing your dog is in a safe environment and that you don’t need to rush home to let them out. No more worrying whether your dog is hungry or if they have to pee while you’re stuck in traffic!

Dogs need socialization

Remember, dogs are pack creatures and need a lot of socialization. The younger you start socializing your pup with other dogs, the better off they'll be. They will be more practiced in playing with strange dogs after their time in doggy daycare.
