Advantages of Pet Boarding & Day Care for Your Dog, Cat or Exotic
June 23, 2017
It you are old enough to rust, you may have thought the notion of taking your cat or dog to day care was absurd. After all, when you're home, they spend a lot of the day curled up asleep. However, modern day facilities are well equipped to provide more than just a place for your furry friend to sleep while you are at work or traveling. For dogs, day care can be a place where they can socialize with other animals, and more importantly, expend a lot of their pent up energy. For cats, many pet day care centers have cat windows to the outside that can provide hours of mental stimulus. Generally speaking, pets need to keep busy, and if you're not at home, it is a different day for your pets.
That's not to say that doggy daycare is right for every dog. Some animals were not adequately socialized as puppies and perhaps now have social issues, such as fear of other dogs or become aggressive around other dogs. If this is the case, talk to your veterinarian or the person in charge of the day care center that you are considering. TV programs like the "Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan" have created a local market for both feline and canine behavioral therapist. Plus, many pet boarding facilities have someone who is responsible for managing floor activities during the day who may also be skilled at proper socialization.
Pet owners are often surprised at how much the pet day care experience can change their furry friend's behavior at home, on daily walks and for trips to the local dog park. Who knows?
