How can daycare add to your dog’s quality of life?
Most pet owners love and care for their pets like family or children and want what’s best for them. We may feel we fall short when we aren’t able to spend as much time playing with them, getting them exercise, or socialization with other dogs. Therefore, offering your pup a chance to give daycare a try is such a gift! It offers many perks for your dog who may need a little extra spice in their life—here are a few!
Dogs are naturally very social animals, and they desire to be around and interact with each other and their humans. Being alone for long periods of time can be taxing on a dog’s mental health and greatly increase their stress levels. This can result in behavioral issues caused by stress and loneliness including barking, whining, howling, and destructive behaviors.
Doggie daycare is a wonderful solution, providing your dog with socialization during the day when they would normally be alone. This will impact their mental health, make them more confident, and overall improve their health and quality of life.
Exercise & Mental Stimulation
Exercise is crucial to the health of humans and dogs alike, but also essential to emotional health as well. However, sometimes it can be difficult to find the time needed to provide them with exercise, let alone get the recommended amount. Our pets rely on us to give them the exercise they need, and if they don’t get it, the pent-up energy can turn into bad habits. Lack of exercise can lead to destructive behaviors and health issues including weight gain. Doggie daycare more than exceeds their needs, resulting in a healthier and happier dog at home. At the end of the day, your dog will come home relaxed and ready to rest!
Your Peace of Mind
Many dog owners worry about their pets being alone at home and this can lead to a lot of guilt as well. It is common that even if you work from home, you are in front of your computer for a minimum of 6-8 hours a day. So even though you are home to let them out to potty, they likely aren’t getting the stimulation or exercise they need. Doggie daycare will help alleviate this all together. When you bring them for a daycare visit to Puppy Play and Stay, you can relax knowing they’re getting some fun incorporated into their day! That way when it’s time to rest or go shopping at the end of the workday, you know your dog is ready to rest as well!
For dogs that are left to entertain themselves at home, there is always a concern for their safety. Whether it be getting into the trash, chewing on wires, or ripping up various things they may find, we’ve learned the hard way that they can get into a bit of mischief! At daycare, they are being watched 24/7 by staff to make sure they are safe! The environment at daycare is set up in such a way to prevent any possible safety concerns. Allowing your dog the space to play with friends and burn their energy safely!
The staff at Puppy Play and Stay are here to care for and give your dog attention and love while they’re with us! It’s our goal to monitor safety, engage your dog in play, and keep them entertained. The attendants will monitor play to help the dogs interact in a safe manner and give one-on-one attention and belly rubs to the pups who want some extra love! Contact us if you think that daycare sounds like it would be beneficial to your dog!
