Happy Dog, Happy Owner: The Incredible Benefits of Dog Daycare
Thinking about putting your dog into daycare? If not, you should! There are so many good reasons to. Here are some of the incredible benefits of dog daycare.
We care a lot about the furry friends we call pets, to the tune of $202.6 billion, in fact. Yep, that’s how big the pet care market is estimated to be by 2025. Within in this large market lies perhaps your biggest expense: doggie daycare.
But is it worth the expense? When it comes to taking care of your pets while on vacation, there is no better option. Keeping reading to learn about the benefits of dog daycare.
Perhaps the chief benefit of taking your dog to daycare as opposed to letting them sit alone at home is that they get to hang out with other dogs. As we know, dogs are pack animals, and without proper and frequent socialization they could become anti-social, which can lead to aggressiveness or doggie depression.
At doggie daycare, your pup will be able to frolick with dogs of all stripes in spaces designed just for them.
If you’re a busy dog owner and your dog is the only one in your household, getting them exercise may prove difficult. After all, a dog can only chase its own tail for so long before getting bored. Even a walk hardly burns off a dog’s energetic intensity.
At daycare, your dog can get some high-intensity playtime with other dogs and people there to attend to their every need.
Training From Professionals
They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but a dog of any age can learn something new, especially at a daycare staffed by consummate professionals. Whether your dog needs basic potty training, a course in obedience, or to learn social cues from other dogs, we can provide your dog the instruction he or she needs.
The alternative is that your dog stays at home, unstimulated and bored. So why take advantage of your time away for your dogs benefit?
Perhaps the best benefit of dog daycare of all is stress relief, for both you and your dog. Owning a dog is like having a child, and sending your dog to daycare is like sending your puppy off to your mother’s house for the weekend. Your dog gets to see a new environment and you get a much-needed vacation.
Daycare also relieves you of the guilt way too many dog owners have about the quality of their care. By sending your pup off to daycare, you no longer have to feel bad about how little exercise or attention they’re getting. You’ll know they’re healthy and happy in the loving arms of professionals.
