Does your dog love playing with other dogs, have energy to boot or just loves being around people? Maybe you have a friendly, active dog, and you just don’t have as much time as you would like, to devote to his exercise and social regime. Ever come home exhausted from a long day at work and your fur kid greets you with his wagging tail asking for a walk or a play? He could be an ideal candidate for Doggie Day Care. Doggy Day Care may seem crazy to some but to devoted dog lovers Doggy Day Care may be the answer to their prayers.
There are so many benefits of Dog Day Care. Boredom, lack of stimulation both physically and mentally can lead to destructive behaviour. Chewing, digging, biting and barking usually top the list of these inappropriate behaviours but then there is also anxiety, anti-social behaviour as well health and weight issues in some cases. Doggy Day Care, even once or twice a week, can be the perfect outlet for your dog’s energy, not to mention the mental stimulation and the social aspect.
We offer a professional service where your pet can be provided with stimulation, exercise, and socialisation, not to mention the extra cuddles and attention. Your pet’s first day will be used as a personality and behaviour assessment day. Generally dogs are a social species and love interaction and stimulation with other dogs but this is not always the case. It is important for us to assess their behaviour and interactions with other dogs to make sure that doggy day care is the right place for your dog and where in our doggy day care is best for them to thrive. In some cases, it can make the world of difference and a once anxious, timid or anti-social dog can become a more confident, outgoing and social dog and in others it can make them worse. We assess your dog and decide where and with who they will get the most benefits out of their dog day care experience. For the more timid or senior dogs, we do have quieter areas that can cater to those who perhaps just need and want a little extra human attention rather than dog attention.
Your dog will be supervised at all times, in fact our aim is to get to know your dog so well that we can cater programs and games to your dog and encourage playtime with personalities that will match your dogs. Our staff all have a broad knowledge of dog behaviours and basic training skills to help prevent any incidents from occurring. We aim to provide a high standard of service for our Doggy Day Care attendies as well as attention to detail. We will always let you know if we have any concerns, no matter how big or small they may be.
Our Doggy Day Care offers a safe and supervised environment where dogs can play. Our facility is air-conditioned, with veterinarian grade, non-slip flooring. We use veterinarian grade disinfectants and cleaning agents including F10 which is bactericidal, virucidal, fungicidal, sporicidal and we have strict cleaning policies and practices in place each day so you can be assured your pet is in a healthy environment. We also provide fresh clean water and flea free beds and spaces for quiet time, should they want some time out or a nap or maybe just to lounge on while taking in one of our many Dog movies – yep, we even have Dog movies!
