OBX Doggie Day Care
Thousands of pet owners work all day, and this requires leaving your dog home while you work. Often these owners come home to a stressed out dog, and rampant destruction, either of the house, or the yard, and neighbors who complain of barking and howling, due to separation anxiety. One of the top ten reasons given at an animal shelter for owner turn-ins is "he destroys my things when I'm not home". This could be prevented so easily with either crate-training, exhaustive exercise, or daycare.
It works just like Daycare for human babies. Dropping your dog off in the morning on the way to work, and while you slave away, your pampered pooch is pampered indeed! Depending on both your dog's activity level, and the curriculum set out by the Daycare owners, he may enjoy his day by playing with other dogs, playing with people, inside or outside, or he may be the type to while away the hours ensconced on somebody's couch, getting loving attention.
Cost of Doggie Daycare
Cost can vary between $8.00 a day and $35.00 a day, depending on the provider, whether the daycare is operated out of a private home, or a fully-staffed facility.
We are a Staffed Commercial Dog Daycares
Our fully-staffed facility offers much for social dog. Often the number of dogs on a day at at our facility can be from ten to twenty dogs, all ready to make friends. Trained staff keep the dogs busy in outdoor play, or even, in some cases, happily munching snacks (healthy, of course!) watching movies made just for the entertainment of dogs. Activities might include "hide and seek", or "tag", or anything that canine minds can come up with. Staff is often trained to deal with any outbreak of aggression that might result, and also has a standing agreement with a local veterinarian should an emergency arise.
In our commercial daycare, dogs must present proof of current vaccinations, and all must be healthy, to prevent the spread of infectious diseases and parasites.
The Best Choice For Your Dog
This may be between you and your dog. Where do you feel more comfortable leaving him? Where do you feel your dog will be most comfortable and happy? Talk to the operators, and go with your instincts. If anything seems out of line, move on. You'll know by the time you pick your dog up at the end of the day that you made the right decision.
