Why Put your Dog in Daycare?

A majority of dogs lack adequate exercise & mental stimulation. This can lead to obesity and other health problems as well as a long list of behavioural problems. The average dog spends 8-10 hours a day at home alone, waiting for someone to come home and interact with them. This lack of adequate stimulation causes dogs to get bored and frustrated. They have no positive outlet for their normal canine energy.
Doggy daycare not only allows dogs to release pent-up energy through play, it can also teach young dogs crucial socialization and body language through safe interactions with dogs of all ages. Dogs are social animals and dog-dog play and interactions are a normal and healthy part of their lives, from puppies to seniors.

 

All friendly dogs deserve to have life-long K9 interactions

to keep them mentally & physically satisfied.

 

Are all Doggy Daycares the Same? 

Unfortunately not. The Doggy Daycare industry is currently not regulated in North America, meaning that there are no mandatory guidelines for supervision, group size, staff education, or management methods.
K9HQ strives to abide by the highest recommended standards with low staff to dog ratios, separate play groups based on size & temperament and continuing education for staff of the most current scientific information on dog behaviour. Safety and the well-being of our dogs are our top priorities. We do not condone the use of pain, fear, intimidation, or physical force. Daycare is meant to be a fun, safe place for dogs, which is why we prefer reward-based management methods to promote a fun & positive atmosphere.
Be sure to do your homework and ask lots of questions when researching doggy daycares to ensure you find the best fit for both you and your furry child.
