Cute DogWith both mom and dad at work, and the kids in school - what's a doggy to do?

While cats are usually happy in their cool and solitary existence, dogs don't take kindly to being alone at home all day.

Enter the doggy day care center, an industry which has grown by leaps and bounds in the past 10 years, fulfilling the need of pet owners who want the best for their family pets.

Dog day care promises lots of interaction with other dogs and humans, featuring organized play groups and exercise programs. Some even provide grooming, obedience training, and health care services.

Doggy day care is not right for every dog, and most reputable day care centers will screen for aggressiveness, extreme sensitivity or shyness, or general poor health or evidence of disease.

How to choose a dog day care center

As new day care centers are opening every day, take the opportunity to compare services and experience local facilities first hand.

  • Look for general cleanliness, good lighting and ample room for play and exercise.

  • Be sure to observe or ask about gates & fencing - to avoid accidental escapes through the front or back door.

  • Ask if day care staff are fully trained to effectively interact and discipline dogs in the care.

  • Also inquire about regular meal times, onsite or visiting veterinary services, and if staff members are trained to administer medications.
