Benefits of Doggy Daycare

Benefits of Doggy Daycare

Does your canine companion spend a lot of time home alone while you are out working? If so, you may want to consider bringing Fido to doggy daycare. Instead of sitting home alone moping, your pet can spend the day playing with his buddies. In this article from Arapahoe Animal Hospital, your Boulder, CO animal clinic, serving Louisville and surrounding areas, a local vet discusses some of the benefits of doggy day care.

Safety

Some of our canine buddies really have a knack for getting into trouble when left alone. Man’s Best Friend has been known to dig and/or chew. He also sometimes tries to eat things that aren’t food. This can be very dangerous! Daycare will offer you peace of mind, as you’ll know your furry friend is safe and sound. That said, if Fido has separation anxiety or other behavioral issues, consult your vet or a professional dog behaviorist.

Exercise

Many of our four-legged buddies are very active, and need lots of playtime and exercise to burn off all that excess energy. If Fido spends the day running and playing with his pals, by the time you get him home, he’ll probably be a bit tired and ready for naps and cuddles. That way, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy some quiet quality time with your canine friend.

Socialization

Doggy daycare can be particularly beneficial for puppies. It’s very important to expose Fido to new places, faces, and experiences while he is little. This will help your furry buddy develop an open mind, so he grows up with a friendly, accepting attitude. There is a certain period for socialization: the window starts to close when Fido is about 12 weeks. Doggy daycare can be great for socialization!

Proper Health Care

Daycare can also be a good option for dogs that have special needs, or even those that do best with supervision. For instance, if your senior dog needs medication during the day, you may find doggy daycare a great choice. Daycare can also be beneficial for people who work long hours. Of course, every dog is different, so you do want to talk to your vet, and get some specific advice.

Do you have questions about sending your canine companion to daycare? We are happy to help! Please contact Arapahoe Animal Hospital, your Boulder, CO animal clinic, serving Louisville and surrounding areas, anytime.
