Daycare at Happy Dogs Aigle can help meet your dog’s needs for attention, activity and supervision and is a great solution for bored, lonely or highly active dogs with busy owners who are out at work all day but don’t want to leave their dogs alone. Boredom and excess energy are two common reasons for behavior problems and barking in pet dogs. While daycare isn’t suitable for every dog, if yours enjoys lots of company and/or playing and socializing with other dogs, it can be a great option for your home-alone pal.
Daycare for dogs works similarly to daycare for children. You drop your dog to Happy Dogs Aigle in the morning, and he gets to play, exercise and relax while you’re away from home. You pick up a pleasantly tired and ready-to-relax dog at the end of your workday.
The main benefits daycare can provide are:
Relief from boredom
Relief from loneliness and the anxiety that loneliness can cause in dogs (including separation anxiety, barking)
Socialization and positive interaction with people
Exercise, play and, if appropriate, supervised socialization with other dogs
Reduction of destructive behavior and barking when home alone
Peace of mind for dog owners who feel badly about leaving their dogs home alone all day
Good candidates for daycare are healthy, spayed or neutered and well-socialized dogs who really enjoy the company of people and other dogs. Young dogs often adjust to the daycare environment better than older ones. If your dog is a regular at dog parks, and she plays a lot and enjoys herself there, then daycares are probably ideal for her.
However, some dogs do better sleeping at home alone than spending the day outside the house and possibly in the company of other dogs. If your dog has ever bitten another dog; is regularly aggressive toward other dogs (snarling, growling or snapping); is fearful, tense or anxious; or tends to avoid or just tolerate other dogs, then daycare is probably not right for her. Hiring a dog walker, asking friends or neighbors to visit your dog in the middle of the day or coming home at lunch may be better options for you.
