The Benefits of Doggie Daycare for Dogs & Their Owners

Many dog owners often wonder if sending their furry companion to doggie daycare is the right choice. In this article, we’ll provide you with more information about doggie daycare and discuss why it might be the right choice for your dog.

What is Doggie Daycare?

The easiest way to describe doggie daycare is to compare it to daycare for children. Yes, there are many differences between the two but the concept is the same. In the morning, you drop your dog off at the daycare facility where he or she gets to socialize and play with other dogs, snack, nap and participate in activities while you’re off working all day.  When you go to pick up your dog at the end of the day, instead of being full of pent up energy, your dog will be ready to enjoy a leisurely evening with you.

What are the benefits of Doggie Daycare?

For thousands of years dogs have been bred for specific jobs, many of which included hunting, herding, protection and guarding. Most of today’s dogs, however, can be considered “unemployed,” as for many dogs, their primary job is as the family pet and animal companion. Dogs that have been bred for thousands of years for specific jobs are now mostly couch potatoes and as a result, many dogs experience boredom and excess energy that can lead to behavior problems.

Doggie daycare provides several benefits for dogs including:

  • Relief from boredom
  • Relief from loneliness
  • Helping to decrease anxiety many dogs experience from being left at home alone
  • Exercise and socialization with other dogs in a safe environment

Doggie daycare doesn’t just benefit the dogs who attend, either! Some of the benefits doggie daycare provides for pet owners include:

  • Aiding in the prevention of behavior that can be destructive when the dog is left unsupervised
  • Relief from guilt experienced by so many pet parents who feel bad about leaving their dogs at home all day
  • Peace of mind knowing your dog is having fun and getting exercise
