Dogs need to be around other dogs in order to learn how to act properly. If you can, start the socialization training as soon as possible-he'll become a lot more confident when it comes to interacting with strange dogs. This can be beneficial to young dogs as it will allow them to develop their social skills. Also, since dogs are social animals by nature, they will love having the opportunity to play with other dogs. If your dog is not exposed to other dogs in a natural way (off leash) regularly they can become anti-social, which presents as dog reactivity, anxiety and aggression toward other dogs.
Most Dog Daycare centers have activities scheduled throughout the day that will help keep your dog stimulated. Activities may include ball-fetching, chasing games, wrestling and tunnel running. You know what your dog is like when you come home from work-he just can't wait to play with you... and that may not be the first thing on your mind. But exercise is critical for a healthy and happy dog, and he'll get it at dog day care. Dog daycare will tire your dog out. All that running around and playing is wonderful exercise for your dog. By the time you bring him home, he'll be ready to curl up at your feet and enjoy a relaxing evening watching TV. Walks are nice (and mandatory for a healthy dog) but unless you're going 45+ minutes a clip, you're barely scratching the surface of a high energy dog's exercise needs. Nothing can replicate the energy expenditure of dogs playing together. That constant wresting is the optimal way to provide them the outlet they so desperately need.
Occasionally, you're not in a position to rush home from work to let him out. But your dog has been home all day, and he needs to go pee. Our dog daycare services allow regular bathroom breaks so your dog stays comfortable and care free.
A Change Of Scenery:
Even if your dog is fine with being home alone all day, it's a good idea to change up his routine every once in a while. It'll be like a mini vacation for him. He can make new friends. If there's a dog that your pooch likes to be around - like a BFF - it will be a chance to set up a dog playdate outside of daycare. You can meet up on weekends for walks or at the dog park. And it's a wonderful way for you to meet new dog people.
Training: Supplemental Dog Education:
Maybe your pup needs a bit more training. Some Dog Daycare's are able to supplement the training you do at home with additional lessons during the day. Continual reinforcement of behavior training can help your dog retain what they are taught. There are even daycare's that will teach your dog new tricks!
