You may have heard that doggy daycares are becoming increasingly popular. Daycare can be really good for our canine pals! In fact, you may find that your pet is both happier and better behaved after a day at ‘school.’ Read on as a North Phoenix, AZ vet lists some reasons to put Fido in doggy daycare.

Exercise

As you may have noticed, dogs are very bouncy and energetic. In fact, many pups are furry, four-legged bundles of zoom! If you put Fido in daycare, he’ll be able to run and play with his friends. This exercise and stimulation will be great for your canine buddy, both mentally and physically!

Supervision

Just like people, dogs can be afflicted with a variety of health issues. Daycare can be a great option for pets that are ill or specially-abled. Your furry best friend will be carefully supervised all day. Your pup’s daycare may also be able to give him any medications that he needs.

Better Behavior

We mentioned above that doggy daycare will allow Fido to run and play. This can really help curb bad doggy behaviors, like digging and chewing. Let your furry friend tire himself our racing his buddies around. When you get home, he’ll be more interested in cuddles and napping than in making mischief. You also won’t have to worry about coming home to find that your canine companion made a mess while you were out!

Socialization

There’s no doubt that your dog adores you. After all, you’re the center of his world, and he depends on the love and care you offer him. However, it’s still good for Fido to interact with other canines, and make friends that know his language, so to speak.

Relaxing Quality Time

At daycare, Fido will enjoy a full day, which includes lots of playtime, socialization, and activity. By the time you pick him up, he probably won’t want—or need—another vigorous workout or play session. Instead, when he gets home, he’ll be ready for snuggles and belly rubs. This works out great for people who don’t have the energy to keep up with frisky pets after a long day at work.
