5 Tips When Looking for a Quality Doggy Day Care, Foley, Alabama

You want your pet to be happy and healthy. That means finding the right doggy day care so they have a pleasant place to stay while you’re away. Take your time with this decision and research dog kennels in your area thoroughly before choosing one. The following are important points to keep in mind as you vet your options.

How to Choose a Quality Doggy Day Care

1. Proximity Is Important

Obviously, it’s important that you’re able to access the facility easily and quickly when you need to. Don’t sacrifice quality for proximity, but don’t choose a pet boarding facility that’s not conveniently located either.

2. Look for Exercise Space

Your dog isn’t just having fun when they’re out playing–they’re also getting much-needed exercise. Look for a dog kennel that has space for them to move around during the day. It will boost their comfort and their well-being.

3. Consider the Medical Facilities

Although it’s unlikely your dog will get hurt during their stay, especially if you’ve taken the time to research available options, it can still happen. Choosing a day care that also has extensive medical facilities on the premises ensures they’ll receive proper care sooner rather than later.

4. Seek Socialization

Doggy Day CareUnless your dog has behavioral issues that make it dangerous for them to interact with other pets, look for an option that allows your dog to socialize. You don’t want them to get lonely while you’re away. Having other dogs to spend time with will distract yours.

5. Assess the Staff

Ask questions of the staff before you make a decision. Essentially, you want to determine whether or not they appear to be honest, trustworthy people. If, for instance, your dog gets into a fight during their stay, it would be important for the staff to share this information with you.
