Ten Reasons to Send your Dog to Daycare
As a pet owner, you know how important it is to give your dog the care and attention he or she needs. However, if your dog spends a lot of time alone during the day while you are at work, then you know your dog is not getting the attention he needs, which may lead to feelings of guilt for you as well as some not-so-nice behaviors in your dog. If this is the case in your household, you may want to consider sending your pet to dog daycare.
The Benefits of of Dog Daycare:
- Relieves Boredom/ Separation Anxiety
One of the primary reason that dogs can develop destructive behaviors is boredom or separation anxiety. If a dog is left by himself for several hours a day during the work week, he may become exceedingly bored or overly anxious, either way, this can manifest into a wide variety of destructive behaviors such as chewing, excessive barking or howling, and even accidents. A great daycare situation will offer healthy stimulation preventing these behaviors.
- Provides Routine
Dogs are creatures of habit and very much like routine. Sending your dog to daycare will help maintain a daily routine of walks and playtime. Here at Hillrose Pet Resort, our daycare provides a regular routine for your dog that always includes a playtime.
One of the major benefits of sending your dog to daycare is that he or she will get exercise daily which is so important for your dog’s overall health.
- Owner peace of mind
For you, the dog owner, you will enjoy peace of mind knowing that your dog is being well-cared for while you are at work eliminating the guilt you may have felt while he was home alone for so many hours at a time.
Having your dog around other dogs as well as other humans is a great means of providing socialization for him. This can be a great tool in training a dog to remain calm in a variety of situations.
