We all want the best for our furry friends. If you’re worried about leaving your pooch alone whilst you’re out at work, then it’s time to think about doggy day care. No-one likes being alone all day, least of all our four-legged companions! Fortunately, doggy day care means that you can relax in the knowledge that your dog is safe and well whilst you’re out and about. Let’s dive into the many benefits of doggy day care.
Just like humans, dogs are social animals. Regular socialisation with other dogs is incredibly important for your pet’s health and wellbeing. Dogs who haven’t been properly socialised are often anxious, lack confidence and may even become aggressive.
At K-9 Cabin, we organise walks, games and group play to help your pup find his or her new BFF (best furry friend). We love nothing more than seeing dogs playing together happily; it’s so good for their health and wellbeing.
If you leave your dog at home alone all day, he’s bound to get bored and look for new ways to entertain himself, such as chewing on your shoes or tearing up your carpets. Your pup is much better off at doggy daycare where he’ll enjoy lots of interaction, stimulation and, of course, affection from our friendly staff.
Tragically, the pandemic has seen dognapping rates go through the roof. More time at home has led to a huge rise in demand for dogs. This in turn has resulted in increased prices and thus many more abductions. Leaving your dog home alone all day puts him at risk of theft. Taking your dog to a daycare facility ensures that your best friend is safe and well looked after whilst you’re out of the house.
Many dogs experience separation anxiety when left at home. This can cause your poor pooch to become very distressed and may even result in behaviour such as howling, defecating indoors or chewing on household items.
During the pandemic, our pets have become used to us being at home with them all the time. Even if your dog didn’t have separation anxiety before restrictions began, there’s a chance he may develop it once life returns to normal.
Dogs need routine – in fact, they thrive on it! The certainty of a good routine can help with your dog’s behaviour and ensure that he feels happy and confident throughout the day. If you keep an inconsistent schedule, doggy day care can be really helpful in establishing a routine for your companion.
While doggy day care comes with a lot of benefits, it is important to know that it isn’t suitable for every dog. This is why it is so important to have an initial assessment to ensure it is a good fit!
