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.
