At Day Care for Doggy, we follow a daily schedule that incorporates all the important things that dogs need to do during the day. The activities and play time allow them to be dogs, get the necessary stimulation and exercise, and be healthy.
Our daily schedule:
6:30 AM to 9:00 AM
Owners drop off their dogs and all their belongings are stored in their allocated lockers. As they arrive, dogs are taken to play areas based on their size and energy levels. They play freely as much as they like. Toys are provided.
9:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Dogs take part in structured activities that teach them discipline while giving them exercise. Activities can include tunnel running, playing fetch, the scratch patch, the ball pit, etc. Dogs with high energy levels are taken for two hour walks to give them the opportunity to get rid of excess energy.
11:00 AM to 13:00 PM
More activities but with a slower pace. Dogs receive one-on-one attention and get the opportunity for some petting and focus on specific commands or social skills. Dogs that are not in a session have the opportunity to swim in the pool or splash around in the smaller pools.
13:00 PM to 13:30 PM
The dogs that are allowed to, get snacks and the puppies receive lunch.
13:30 PM to 15:00 PM
Dogs need rest after the active day. They can choose to sleep outside or inside or just rest and roll around. It is time to calm down and relax a bit.
15:00 PM to 17:00 PM
The last few hours of the day are for free play. The dogs play with toys or each other and can have fun in the pools. Dogs who need grooming as requested by their owners, go for that during this time. Pick-up starts anytime from 15:00 as owners start getting off work.
