How to Know If Doggy Daycare Is Right for Your Dog

If you’re a working professional, you probably spend the majority of your week at an office, which means your dog is home alone. It’s always the hardest saying goodbye to your pet for the day; “Be a good boy, I’ll see you later!” Send your pup to doggy daycare instead of leaving them home alone all day! When you leave your dog home alone, you’re stripping them of the opportunity to play outside and socialize with other dogs. Read our guide to know if doggy daycare is right for your dog.

Is Your Dog Social?

Just like humans, dogs have different personalities. Would you describe your dog as more of an extrovert or an introvert? Some dogs aren’t comfortable walking into a space with 10+ dogs. But this might be considered paradise to other dogs.

Doggy daycare is ideal for dogs who like to be social, but it can also be great for dogs who just enjoy human interaction. Dog daycares, like Paw Lofts, have separate areas for dogs who aren’t the best at being social, and just want to enjoy some human time.

How Old Is Your Dog?

If you have a puppy, doggy daycare is definitely the spot for them. Dog daycare great for puppies because it’s an outlet for them exert some energy and play. Plus, it provides them with the opportunity to learn how to socialize with other dogs. Not socializing your dog when they’re a puppy could lead to social issues, such as fear of other dogs and aggression.

Keep in mind that some doggy daycares, like Paw Lofts, do have separate areas for older, more relaxed dogs. In these areas, the older doggos can relax and play one-on-one with humans or other older dogs.

How Often Are You Away from Home?

It’s not fair to leave your sitting home alone in an apartment or house for most the day/week, especially if they love being active. Depending on the breed, your dog is just waiting to go play a game of fetch or simply just run around in wide open spaces.

Most of us work full-time positions, which means our pets are home alone for 40+ hours a week. Sending your dog to doggy daycare means no more alone time for them; No more feeling guilty about leaving them alone, for you. By the time you pick your dog up from daycare they’ll be happy and ready to enjoy some quality snuggle time on the couch.
