FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. What is Dog Daycare?
A. Doggie daycare is a fun and educational alternative to leaving your pet home alone. It is a supervised, social environment for healthy dogs to interact, exercise and learn from one another.
Q. How will Daycare help my dog?
A. We understand dogs and their need to exercise and socialize. Boredom and lack of stimulation can lead to destructive behavior such as chewing, licking, digging or barking. Structured play keeps a dog's body and mind active resulting in a healthier, happier, well-balanced pet. Socialization, another major benefit of dog daycare, is paramount to the integration of a dog in social settings. A well socialized dog is less likely to be aggressive towards other dogs and people.
