Many families in the USA have their own dog, but the problem is they can’t give much more time to it, because they are busy. There is no one home during the day to care of the family pet. While your dogs do not need constant supervision, there are dogs that do better emotionally, physically, and socially when they are around loving and caring people and other animals.
You will of course only wish to place your dog into the hands of a facility that you trust. Here are a few tips to find one:
1. Apart from searching online, ask other dog owners for referrals of places they have tried. Check with your local pet store, veterinarians, and grooming parlor for references.
2. Dog day cares should be clean with few odors. It is difficult to avoid at least some hint of a doggie smell, but avoid any putrid-smelling place.
3. Dogs should be well supervised. Note the dog-to-staff ratio to be certain that there are enough care takers to provide for proper supervision.
4. Make certain that each individual facility you visit allows you to see exactly where your animal will be sleeping and eating. Stay clear of places that refuse to let you visit parts of the facility.
5. All facilities must clean with agents that kill bacteria and virus.
6. All facilities must have a relationship with a local veterinarian so that if there is a problem, help is surely on the way.
