The benefits of a doggy day care for your Chihuahua puppy

See also

A new puppy is a sweet, playful companion that is full of spunk and mischief. As a new member of your family, your little canine needs to learn respect and basic obedience, including socialization and proper ways to play with others. Often a new puppy can be so full of energy, it has difficulty knowing how to interact well with other animals within the home. A doggy daycare can provide many benefits for your puppy so that it can be a well-mannered member of your family and home. For puppy daycare in the Rockford-area, check the listing below or one closest to your home as recommended by other pet owners or your vet.

A doggy daycare is a great option when trying to socialize your new puppy. It teaches it how to get along with other dogs and learn proper play techniques with them. Some pups literally need to learn when a dog sends a signal, “no I don’t want to play anymore” but the puppy is still energized. It is also a great way to expel those puppy energies.

A dog daycare is similar to that of a daycare for children. Most daycares have specific hours where you can leave your puppy for a half day or full day with rates that apply for each. You can choose the number of hours and days you prefer for your little canine. Since your pup would be utilizing all its energies at daycare, your little bundle of fur would be more pleasant and ready to relax with you at day’s end.

If your little one has to be left in a crate all day while you are away, the puppy has no way to release pent-up energies. Some of the benefits of dog daycare are to be physically active in a safe environment to utilize some of those energies, while also preventing boredom. Through daily playtimes, your puppy is also learning how to play appropriately with other pups and meeting its socialization needs. Your little guy is learning proper interaction with other animals and can carry on the new learned behaviors with your other pet companions in the home.

Further benefits of doggy daycare is relief from loneliness that can cause separation anxiety, prevention of destructive behavior as a result of boredom and fulfill necessary exercise and physical activity necessary for proper development. In choosing a place to care for your dog, consider its safe, clean environment that is staffed by those with a deep passion for dogs. Inquire about supervised play groups, ensuring your pup will interact well with others of the same size, temperament and comfort level for proper attention and socialization. When you pick up your puppy after its time at dog daycare, you can share a special bond and quality time with your happy, not-so-energetic family companion.
