Dog Daycare is More than Just Fun!

Veterinarians agree dog daycare provides benefits to your canine’s mental and physical health in the safest ways. Here are some ways dog daycare improves the wellbeing of your dog.


The most common preventable illness in dogs today is obesity. Pet parents are simply busier and harder-working than ever, and they often don’t have the time to make sure their dogs get the right amount of exercise each day. Dog daycare is the ideal place for dogs to play all day, get lots of exercise, and burn their extra energy and calories to improve physical fitness (as well as mental satisfaction!).


Most dogs are social by nature, and they have an inherent desire to spend time with other pups. Dog parks and hiring pet sitters can be risky, but dog daycare is a fully supervised place for friendly, vaccinated pets to play together in a nurturing environment. Proper socialization is also proven to lead to better canine confidence and sense of self.

Mental Stimulation

Have you ever come home from work to find couch filling all over your floor? Holes all over your yard? Complaints from neighbors about the barking dog? These behaviors are signs of boredom and anxiety from being at home alone all day. The mental stimulation and engagement of dog daycare satisfies your dog’s busy mind and helps reduce these (and other) undesirable habits.
