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.
What You Need to Know Before You Drop Off Your Pup
In OBX, you can find a variety of choices for doggie day care. But before you drop them off, be sure that your pup is up to date on all their needed vaccines and provide the proper documentation to the facility of your choice. Even with all of the vaccines in line, be sure that your dog is healthy as to prevent any disease spreading. Also, it may be a good idea to make sure that you have an appointment as some facilities may have limited availability, particularly on holidays!
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.
