Is dog daycare right for your pet?
If you’re away from home for extended periods of time during the day, dog daycare can
help both you and your pet. Most dogs shouldn’t be left alone for more than 8 hours.
(For many dogs, that time is even less.) After all, dogs need bathroom breaks and human
companionship. On a good day you might be able to make it home on time. But some days
you might need to work late or you need to take care of something after work. Or maybe
you’re starting a new job that isn’t as dog-friendly as your last one.
Our pet sitters are there for you and your dog. A DogVacay pet sitter provides a day of
supervised care (including walks) at his or her home. Each booking includes a daily update
on your dog and premium pet insurance. Browse and book online. Then you drop the dog off in
the morning, and pick the dog up at a scheduled time in the afternoon or evening. The dog,
tired and happy, might just fall asleep on the ride home.
If you’re not away from home every day, you can book daycare a few times a week. This
gives your pet an opportunity to socialize with other dogs. After all, they’re pack animals.
An added bonus of doggy daycare: It can help pets overcome separation anxiety. They become
more comfortable and confident when you going away. The pet sitter’s place is like a home
away from home.
Dog daycare isn’t just for workdays. Doggy daycare is also helpful on busy weekends. Maybe
you have a Saturday full of errands, birthday parties, activities or sporting events. Perhaps
you’re taking a daytrip to see a friend or relative. Drop off your dog in the morning, and
take care of everything without having to worry about rushing home to the dog.
