Doggy Daycare: Is It For Me?

June 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 166

Do You Need Doggy Daycare?

If you are a dog owner and lover, but you work long hours, you may feel very guilty about having a dog.

Dogs require a lot of care and attention and if you cannot devote enough time to them, you could come home to a house filled with destruction and an unhappy pet. If you want to have a dog but do not have the weekday hours to give them the care that they need, you should consider doggy daycare. Or, the alternative, waiting on a pet until you do have the time. The responsibilities of owning a dog or cat is always one that is underestimated prior to adopting. Always keep that in mind!

Doggy daycare is exactly how it sounds, according to guide Krista Mifflin. You will drop your dog off on your way to work and then pick him up on your way home. While you are working at your job, your dog will be living in the lap of luxury; playing with other dogs and the employees at the daycare, and getting special treats like grooming and nail clipping. The actual activities that your dog will participate in on a daily basis vary based on the individual day care that you choose, but generally, these doggy daycares have a curriculum that is filled with fun for your pooch.

How Much Does it Cost? Costs for the daycare service for your dog can vary widely depending on the state that you live in, the amount of services provided, and whether your dog is going to a private home or to a larger facility. You could pay anywhere from $10 to $40 per day, so you will need to do your research for one that has everything that you need at the right price.

What Is the Difference Between Private Doggy Daycare Centers and Commercial Centers? Private doggy daycare centers are usually much cheaper than the commercially owned facilities. Your dog will get a lot more one-on-one human contact at a privately owned facility, but he will also not have as much interaction with other dogs. If your dog is not very social or does not do well in large groups, then these smaller daycares are better choices.

Larger, commercial doggy daycares are ideal for those dogs that thrive in large groups and love to play with other dogs. They will not get as much personal contact with humans, but this will be made up for with all of the contact they get with other dogs.
