The Benefits of Pet Daycare
With the Greenville community reopening, many of us are returning to our day jobs. If you are a dog owner, you’re faced with those big eyes begging you to stay home and the guilt of leaving your precious pooch at home alone all day. The good news is that doggie daycares are opening back up!
Daycare can help relieve your pet’s boredom and separation anxiety. When left alone for more than a few hours, our pets can become bored and anxious. This can lead to destructive behaviors such as chewing, excessive barking, or accidents. Daycare can help combat this by providing companionship and healthy doggie stimulation.
Dogs are also creatures of habit and enjoy a regular routine. Daycare can help create and maintain a daily routine of playtime and walks – extremely important activities for your dog’s mental and physical wellbeing.
A daycare is also a great way to keep your dog social. Dogs are by nature pack animals, so it is important to keep them socially active. They need to be able to interact with new dogs and humans in a safe environment. Your dog needs plenty of loving attention, affection, and stimulation — but it can be hard to provide that at the end of a long workday. A good daycare is a great option, providing a safe place for your dog to encounter a variety of new people & situations and learn how to handle them under the care of professionals – professionals who are as obsessed with your dog’s care and happiness as you are.
Additionally, doggie daycares provide a safe environment for your dog to get all their excess energy out. A tired dog is a happy dog! At the end of the workday, you can pick up a well-cared-for dog that is as tired as you are and ready to just snuggle up on the couch with you!
Sold on the idea? Here are a few of our favorite doggie daycares in Greenville.
Dog Culture is locally owned by two dog lovers, Megan and Steve Mussman. They created Dog Culture to provide a unique and fun dog enrichment facility to cater to the dog owners of Greenville. They call themselves the Montessori School for doggies. Your dog will have a daily schedule consisting of playtime with friends, outdoor fun, puzzles, and naps. The dogs are divided into groups based on size, age, social activity, and temperament. They are always supervised by fully trained staff members that have undergone both dog behavior training as well as CPR training. And if you have any worries you can check up on your dog at any time through their webcams.
The owner, Madison Perry, wanted to create a daycare that really prioritized the mental and physical health of the pets they care for. Reedy Rover’s staff engages the dogs with personal attention, structure, mental stimulation, and playtime with others. They group the dogs based on size, play style, and personality. Your dog will enjoy ample socialization and playtime both inside and outside as well as a well-deserved nap time.
The Greenville location of Pet Paradise is a state-of-the-art facility with bone-shaped swimming pools, kiddie pools, and splash pads. Your pup will have jungle gyms and endless toys to play with. The dogs are grouped by size and activity level and all playtimes are supervised. You can watch your dog throughout the day via webcam and you even get a Lil’ Camper Report Card to show off how well your dog did during playtime.
Doggie daycare is a surprisingly affordable option that can tremendously improve the quality of your dog’s life. The cost of daycare averages about $20-35 a day. Half-day rates are often available as well as seasonal discount packages. Even a few visits a week to a good doggie daycare can lead to a more well-balanced, well-mannered, and happy dog!
