Benefits of Dog Daycare

Dog daycare is more than fun—it’s also full of meaningful benefits for your dog’s mental and physical wellbeing!

  • Exercise. Staying home all day while you’re out of the house often means a lack of exercise for your pup. While a walk around the block is wonderful, it’s often not quite enough to keep our furry loved ones in good physical shape. Dog daycare gives dogs a place to run, play, and spend their energy, improving heart health and promoting a healthy weight.
  • Mental Engagement. We don’t have to tell you dogs are smart! They’re happiest when their minds are occupied, and a day home alone can be very boring to anyone, dog or human. When dogs get bored, they tend to find their own ways of having fun—including chewing the couch, digging up the yard, and howling all day. Daycare ensures they channel this attention and energy constructively.
  • Safest Place to Play. Dog daycare is the safest care options for pet parents—there’s no need to invite a stranger into your home. Not only does your pup get lots of undivided attention, but our daycare also takes place in a secure, fully double-fenced play environment designed just for dogs
