We know how much you care and love your dogs. You always want to ensure their health and happiness, even when you’re not around. Choosing the perfect doggie daycare is important to ensure the safety of your pet and will give you the peace of mind that you need when you’re not with them.
Here’s What You Need to Look for In A Doggy Day Care:
1. Friendly and Professional Staff
– Check the online reviews this is the best source of honest information.
– Have any of their staff undergone behavioral training?
– Do they have knowledge in handling pet emergencies?
– Ask for the daily schedule for the pets in their facility?
It is important to make sure that the daycare facility that you choose has employees that are equipped with knowledge, experience and will treat your pet as their own.
2. Do They Pay Attention to The Pet’s Health?
Check if the facility is requiring vaccination records for every pet. If they don’t ask you for that information, then they probably don’t ask everyone else. It is also important for them to ask you about possible medical emergencies for your pet like allergies, chronic health conditions, any health issues, or any medications that your dog is taking at the moment.
** Remember that Pet Insurance can help reimburse you for covered veterinary costs.
