Benterprise Dog Walks offers a variety of doggy care services, including dog walks, dog sitting, and doggy daycare on the Upper West Side. We also offer dog training services for individuals who don’t have the time or the know-how to train their dogs themselves. Many dog owners are searching for a viable solution to the problem of leaving their dogs alone for extended periods while they’re gone at work or on business, and they want to know if doggy daycare would be good for the best friends.
Would Your Dog Do Well in a Doggy Daycare?
Not all dogs perform well in a doggy daycare. The kinds of dogs that do well are ones that have been trained, typically since a young age, to follow rules and interact with other dogs in a healthy manner. As certified dog trainers, we can train your pup for you to get him/her ready for doggy daycare if they’re not ready now. We are dog trainers and dog owner coaches. We help people to become educated dog lovers.
Is Doggy Daycare a Good Idea for My Dog?
The two most common questions we get is “Is my dog going to be safe at doggy daycare?” and “Will my dog benefit from doggy daycare?” To answer the first question; yes. Your dog will always be safe in our care. However, the answer isn’t an automatic “Yes” to the second question. Truthfully, while many dogs do well at doggy daycare, not all dogs are ideal for this service. Many puppies and full-grown dogs will not like the environment that you’re trying to provide them with, which is a fun place for your dog to interact and play.
Two Things Will Determine How Your Dog Performs in Doggy Daycare
There are two factors that will determine how your dog will respond to doggy daycare. Factor number one is the way that the daycare you choose is run. Make sure that your doggy daycare has a healthy management style and that the facility isn’t overcrowded with dogs. When there are too many dogs in one location, it will be stressful for your dog. Also, keep in mind that more dogs mean less one-on-one attention for your pooch. Plus, doggy daycare is for dogs who want to socialize, not for dogs who still need to learn how to socialize.

Socialization begins at home and with your personal dog trainer. Ideally, dog training and socialization should be done throughout the early phases of your dog’s life. Then, doggy daycare can be a great place for your dog to practice the socialization skills they’ve learned at home. If you send your dog to a doggy daycare, and they haven’t developed adequate socialization skills, your dog is going to stress out and have a difficult time with settling down and enjoying the environment you’re trying to provide for him/her.
