Doggy daycare provides a safe, fun and enriching environment for your dog to spend their day making friends, learning vital socialisation skills, taking part in canine enrichment activities and of course, getting lots of love and attention. Dog daycare provides you with the peace of mind that your precious family member is being cared for when you can’t be there – coupled with regular pupdates!
Dogs can become bored, lonely, destructive and even suffer from separation anxiety when left home alone for prolonged periods. Dog daycare is the perfect solution for giving your dog a happy and fulfilling life while you cannot be there during the day.
Daycare can allow you to work from home in peace, knowing that your pup is getting their daily exercise and will come home nice and tired. Dog’s thrive on route and love getting to see their friends and have fun taking part in activities – it also helps with seperation anxiety, helping them to be happy being away from their families without become anxious or stressed. This is particularly important during lockdown, while many people are working from home, their dogs still need the enrichment that being at daycare brings, and will make it easier for your dog to transition back to ‘normal life’ when you have to return to leading ‘a more normal life’ yourself and you are not home as much.
Doggy daycare also plays an important role in a young puppy’s training and development, helping them to be confident in new surroundings, with new people and to help them learn vital socialisation skills. Puppies can start daycare after they have had all their vaccinations, usually around 12wks old.
Many dogs attend daycare just because they love it and the exercise helps to keep them healthy and happy throughout their lives! Whatever the reason, you can be sure that your precious family member is getting the very best care at The Doggy House!
