Unable to provide ample exercise

Not providing the dog with the needed physical exercise would be unfair to him. Excessive pent-up energy also causes aggression and destructive behavior.

You will not have to feel guilty about not providing enough mental and physical stimulation to your dog. These activities will get covered at the daycare. You can look at daycare as a doggy school.

No time to play

Dog daycare can provide the necessary exercise and mental stimulation.

If you have a dog that belongs to one of the high energy breeds like Siberian Husky, Alaskan malamute, German shepherd, pit bulls, etc. who require at least two hours of exercise on a daily basis, a dog daycare may be a good option for you.

Socialization required

If you have a mildly shy dog, dog daycare can be an amazing option for your pup.

Since they are many dogs at the daycare, your dog will learn:

  • How to socialize with other dogs?
  • How to greet new dogs?
  • How to be friendly?
  • Finally, how to play well with other pups.

Dog is bored at home

Your dog is getting bored and would probably do well in the company of other dogs.

With the doggy daycare, you will never have to worry about your dog getting bored when in the dog daycare.

You have to go out of town

Most of the doggie daycares also have a day boarding facility.

In case you suddenly have to go out of town for a few days to run a personal errand or on official work, you can leave your dog in the daycare.
