Doggy daycare has many benefits. It builds confidence through supervised off-lead play, allowing them to socialise with a variety of dogs in a safe environment.
It can help improve separation anxiety and take the pressure off you as an owner knowing that while you are not able to be home with your dog that he or she is having a great time with their friends at daycare and not home bored or stressed.
Daycare allows your dog to burn off that never-ending energy with their new friends. Dogs are pack animals so being able to play off lead together is important for their social skills and manners but also allows them to be dogs.
Early enrolment into doggy daycare for puppies can help prevent dog reactivity, anxiety, and aggression towards other dogs.
Doggy daycare is for all ages shapes and sizes.
Firstly, all dogs must pass a behavioural assessment before coming to daycare.
The assessment takes 20 minutes where we introduce your dog to the other daycare dogs in a safe 3 step process. We will monitor your dog and their behaviour throughout the 20mins.
You will have some paperwork to complete giving us all the important info about you and your dog.
We will need to see your current vaccination certificate or vaccination card.
All dogs must be up to date with flea, tick, and worming treatments.
They must be desexed no later than 6mths of age – larger breeds based on verts recommendation and dogs' temperament.
Dogs start arriving from 7:30am they will be placed in their size and temperament suited play areas.
We have 3 indoor areas and two outside areas, this configuration changes throughout the day based on the dogs at day-care their personalities and play styles.
Once all morning dogs have arrived our super fun day begins
Our staff interact with your dog throughout the day, with games, general training, and basic agility.
We understand the importance of your dog having human interaction as well as making friends with their fellow dogs, so both are balanced to ensure your dog gets the most out of being with us at daycare.
Water play on hot days with our sprinkler pool, shell pools and hose play are always a crowd favourite.
We have bubble machines, sandpits, climbing equipment, cubby houses and toys in each area.
We are aware of over stimulation, which is why we have Meditation sessions, we move all dogs inside put on some relaxing music and encourage rest and nap time at least twice a day.
Dogs will be dogs – when they are happily playing and rumbling together, we supervise from the sideline and let them enjoy their new friends.
We don’t force any dog to play or interact until they are ready- Dogs who are at doggy day-care to build on their social skills are given extra cuddles and support to help them come out of their shells when they are ready to do so.
Yes, it Is normal.
The first couple times your dog attends daycare he/ she will come home very tired and lay around for a couple of days. This is normal. There is a lot of mental and physical stimulation during the day that your dog may not be used to.Your dog may also have runny poos, this can happen after his/ her first visits to doggy daycare, it is very normal and often simply due to the excitement of the day.
