Choosing The Best Doggy Day Care in Durham

Many of us have to work at least 40 hours a week, and leaving our dogs home alone can be stressful. Not only for us but our pets as well. Many dogs when left unattended will become bored and bad behavior patterns arise.

One of the best solutions in making sure your pup is happy while you are at work, is to drop them off at a doggy daycare. Many pet owners might be surprised to find out there is such a thing. They have actually become just as popular as child daycare centers.

Just as you would want to make sure you put your child in good daycare, the same goes for your pet. This article is designed to help you find the best doggy daycare in your area.

The first thing you want to do is just drop by for an unexpected visit in the middle of the day. See if you will be allowed to take a quick walk through the center. Most daycares will be more than willing to accommodate you. You want to be on the lookout for strong odors, bored and anxious dogs, and uncleaned pens.

While you are taking your tour, take note of how the dogs are separated. You do not want to seem overly large dogs playing in the same areas as the wee small ones. Just like a school playground, the smaller ones will be bullied around.

For many larger breed dogs, the high-pitched squealing makes them sound more like prey as opposed to a playmate. Many doggy daycare centers will have separate play areas for the dogs, or they will have different play times scheduled.

Explained: Bed Bug Pest Control

Most people think of bedbugs as a problem of the past. And, until a few years ago they were right. That is not the case today. Bedbugs have again become a problem and they seem to be gaining ground on us.

Bed bugs are small flattened insects that, unlike fleas and ticks, do not require a blood meal to perform their reproductive process. Instead, the source of food for the bug is blood.  This is not usually the case. Bed bugs can be introduced in some of the cleanest locations. They tend to "hitch-hike" in the clothing or luggage of travelers while the person is completely unaware of their presence. In this way, they spread, usually from motels or hotels, into homes.

They are active at night. They tend to feed once every five to ten days. They tend to hide in the folds and mattress seams during the day. They are attracted by carbon dioxide in the breath of a sleeping host. 

After dusk, when everything is calm, they come out, collect their meal and return to their rest areas. The bite is completely painless because they have a small amount of analgesic in their saliva. For this reason bedbugs are not considered a medical threat.
