To avoid having the dog get lonely (and get in trouble) during the day, there are doggie day camps popping up all over the country. Your dog can get out and get some exercise during the day as well as being supervised.
Before you leave your dog alone in the care of someone else, you want to make sure that that person is qualified and will take good care of your little baby. Here are some things you should know before you choose a particular
doggie day camps:
#1 – How many staff do they have in relation to the number of dogs?
You don’t want to have too few staff members to watch over the dogs. It’s important for them to have enough well trained staff to keep a close eye on all the dogs as well as give all dogs equal attention and love.
#2 – What other services do they offer?
If possible it would be nice to have a groomer, a trainer, or even have a facility that provides transportation to and from everyday. The whole point of getting your dog into a day camp is to make sure they are well cared for, loved and to save you some time and work. Finding a day camp that has a lot of added benefits just makes your life that much easier.
#3 – Find out if this dog care has a good reputation.
Checking with your local human society about complaints, as well as the local chapter of the better business bureau is a good idea. Ask your veterinarian or local pet food store for recommendations.
#4 – Pricing
It’s not always a good idea to use prices as the main criteria in searching for a good place to keep your dog. You want to make sure that your dog is well taken care of but still have to be able to afford it.
Picking doggie day camps can be a great way to make your life a little easier. With these tips you should be able to find a great, safe, place for your dog to go during the day while you are busy at work. It can be a win / win for you and your dog!
