03 Aug Most Important Things To Look for In A Doggie Daycare
Make sure to look for these before choosing a doggie daycare for your precious pooch:
1. Playtime is provided for the majority of the day. While a two-hour “naptime” is common, during the rest of the day, your dog should have time to play with and get affection from staff members and play with other dogs.
2. Proof of current vaccinations. Distemper, parvo, rabies and bordatella vaccinations should be required for your dog to be in dog daycare.
3. Appropriate control measures. Avoid a doggie daycare where the staff controls the dogs by routinely punishing or physically manipulating them. Appropriate control measures include interrupting the dogs by calling them away from a potential conflict, giving short (2-3 minute) time out periods, or redirecting the dogs to more appropriate behaviors.
4. Assessment of a dog’s suitability for the daycare environment. An incoming dog should be tested to ensure that she enjoys the company of other dogs and should be acclimated to the group slowly and safely.
