Before you enroll your dog, it’s important to know that not all dogs enjoy daycare. Dogs in the wild don’t play in large groups, and while many domestic dogs love daycare, it’s important to understand that your dog might not. Dogs can’t tell you that they’re not having fun, so if we notice signs of distress, aggression or unhappiness we will recommend that your dog come less often to daycare, or perhaps not come at all. This is not a reflection of your dog’s “goodness” or likability. We don’t want to create a situation that puts the physical and emotional well-being of your dog, other dogs, and our staff at risk.
What makes a dog a good candidate for daycare?
- Dogs should be well socialized and enjoy meeting new dogs and people
- Dogs should be in good physical health
- Dogs should know basic commands such as their name, come, and sit.
- Dogs should be comfortable in new environments and being away from their owners
What makes them a bad candidate?
- Dogs over 6-8 months of age with little to no socialization or “life exposure”. It’s a lot to ask a dog to be able to come into a new environment, engage with new people and dogs, and just “go play”.
- Dogs with a history of aggression toward people or other dogs
- Dogs with physical problems or ailments such as arthritis, seizures, vomiting or diarrhea
