3 Dog Behaviors That Can Be Helped with Doggie Daycare


There’s no such thing as a bad dog. But if the movies have taught us anything, being “home alone” can sometimes lead to, shall we say, extracurricular activities.

Doggie daycare offers a safe, secure, and fun-filled alternative to your dog flying solo while you’re at work or running errands. But, in addition to the loving care that staff members provide, daycare programs can also help to improve certain canine behaviors. Take a look:

  1. Hello, self-confidence: By introducing your dog to positive experiences and interactions with new people, animals, sights, and sounds, doggie daycare gives dogs’ confidence a boost, while teaching them good social manners.
  2. Bye-bye, boredom and loneliness: Regular visits to doggie daycare give your dog a daily outlet to exercise, socialize, run, jump, and play. That means no time is spent waiting aimlessly by the door for your return, or getting into potential mischief, such as exploring the garbage or barking excessively. Customized play groups and romps through the sprinklers offer a pleasant, positive distraction – and ensure that your dog is happy and well-exercised at the end of the day.
  3. Au revoir, anxiety: Dogs who are enrolled in doggie daycare programs become acclimated to being away from their moms and dads for blocks of time, which helps prevent separation anxiety.

At Paws and Play Pet Resort, all dogs are given an evaluation to ensure play groups are well matched for temperament, play style, size, and activity level.
