									Why Place Your Dog In Daycare?

Daycare for dogs is a concept that is becoming more and more popular
among the working population. Prior to the development of pet care,
animals were left home all day, often penne up in cages, locked inside
houses, or fenced in yards, left on their own to entertain themselves or
cause trouble as they see fit. Many an owner has come home to a destroyed
home, chewed up shoes or an escaped dog running free in the neighborhood.
Dog daycare eliminates that problem by providing a safe place for animals
to stay and play while their owners are away.

While not enrolling your dog in daycare is not going to turn them into
the undertrained laughingstock of the neighborhood, there are many
advantages to doing so. In a doggie daycare dogs are provided with
grooming services daily, including, but not limited to, bathing,
brushing, nail trimming, coat clipping, and cleaning of eyes, ears and
teeth. More in depth procedures, such as cleaning of anal glands, may be
available at some centers.

In a society where a disobedient dog may result in them having to be put
to sleep, it is very important that all dogs be well trained. Dogs spend
time each day with a professional trainer, who works consistently with
them on basic obedience commands such as sitting and coming when called.
A "doggie boot camp" is available in many locations for pets who have
previously had difficulties in training. Many of these animals have been
written off as untrainable. A highly educated staff works with the
animals daily, using repetition to teach the dogs basic skill. A high
level of success has been achieved through these programs, allowing the
dogs to have more time and focus given to their training than is possible
with an owner who works all day.

Play time and exercise time are both important components of a canine day
care facility. Dogs are walked several times a day, and like children are
often given a playground to play on, allowing them to run, jump and
climb. Separate faculties are available for both large and small size
dogs, with the separation being made at or around twenty five pounds.
Puppies have their own separate area, where they are played with,
housebroken, and loved.

As with a child care facility, guidelines are established for feeding and
napping, with food bowls and sleeping space provided by the day care. Any
nutritional or physical needs the dogs have are observed, with any
problems discussed with both the owner and a veterinarian. In this way,
all parties are involved in a dog's care, and the chances of a dog being
cared for improperly are greatly reduced.

Along with playground time, all dogs are given plenty of one-on-one
playtime with staff. This time is essential for the dogs happiness, and
illustrates the most important benefit of placing a dog in daycare. Dogs,
like children, require love and attention throughout the day to be happy
and well adjusted. Dogs that receive this love and attention are less
likely to develop common misbehavior problems, and these happy dogs will
make happy owners.
