The Real Benefits of Doggy Daycare

Dogs are special species living in our strange human world with different needs than ours. Dogs believe humans have strange customs and weird rules. Humans don’t enjoy being jumped on or nipped in the butt when playing. That’s just plain weird to your dog. Our dogs have adapted to living in our households, but they still yearn for the same species sounds, smells, and interactions. It’s nice for your dog to forget about our human nonsense and “just be dogs.” You can make this happen at doggy daycare.

Not all dogs are the same, and there are some who are not well suited for a group daycare setting. An honest evaluation of your dog’s behavior and personality can determine who he or she will play with well. Most dogs benefit from having regular interactions with other dogs, even if it’s just sight and smell. At Ms. C’s, we pair your dog with other like-size dogs with similar personality and play behaviors.

Daycare is beneficial to dogs whether they attend once a week or every day. Benefits include:

» Socialization – Dogs need to be around other dogs to learn the dos and don’ts of how to play nicely with others. If your dog is not exposed to other dogs regularly, they can become anti-social, which can result in reactivity, anxiety, and aggression towards other dogs. For a dog to be social, they need consistent positive social interaction with other dogs.

» Exercise – Walks are mandatory for a healthy dog, but unless you’re speed walking or running, you’re barely scratching the surface of a dog’s exercise needs. Nothing can replicate the energy expenditure of dogs playing together.

» You get a break – We lead hectic lives – long hours at work, running errands, shopping, taking kids to special events, everyday chores – with no hours left in the day to relax. You can’t rush home to let the dog out, but he’s been home all day and needs to go potty. Responsible dog care requires a considerable investment of time.

Doggy daycare gives you a much needed break without feeling guilty. Dogs come home happily tired, ready to rest. A win-win for all! Call to discover how your dog can benefit from doggy daycare. Ms. C’s offers daycare from 7:30 am to 6 pm Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
