EXERCISE

Dogs, especially young puppies, need a lot of exercise to thrive - often more than we can give them on a daily basis especially when we are tied up with work and family commitments. Exercise is vital to build up a healthy immune system and body, as well as to learn appropriate interactions and get used to new surroundings. Our day care can provide your dog with the exercise they need throughout the day when your schedule does not allow you to do so.

INTERACTION

Interacting and socialising with other well-behaved dogs of similar size and personality can be beneficial to your dog’s social development. This can lead to more confident interactions with other pets and people outside of the daycare environment. It is not unusual for day care dogs to exhibit more stable, well-adjusted personalities than they had prior to regularly attending a day care facility

STIMULATION

Our dog day care provides productive ways for your dog to engage their brain cells. To ensure this we offer agility equipment, toys, structured activities and continual canine interaction to keep your furry friend intellectually engaged. Staff members are continually on site to make sure your pet is safely enjoying the play areas and their playgroups. The scents, games, and interaction with others can really help exercise your pet’s brain.

LONELINESS

Loneliness tends to be a major concern for many owner that leave their dogs at home during the day. Again, dogs are inherently social creatures. Loneliness can affect them in the same way it affects humans; it can lead to depression. A depressed dog has a lack of energy, becoming withdrawn and inactive, and can even have a loss in appetite and will sleep more than usual. Depression in dogs is very similar to humans. By attending a doggy daycare, your dog can make friends that they can come back to see and play with on a regular basis, allowing them to create social bonds.

ENERGY RELEASE

By enrolling in a day care, you can ensure your fourlegged friend is able to release energy in a positive way throughout the day without being destructive.

ROUTINE

Like humans, dogs do better with structure to their lives. Dogs are creatures of habit and having a routine allows them to satisfy that habitual need. A daily routine of walks, playtime, and interactions gives them something to look forward to and makes them feel safe. Dogs feel more secure when they have a sense of predictability to their day. A quick word of caution: not all dogs can handle going to daycare every day. They can get tired, stressed, and cranky. Dogs like this would do well going to daycare only a few times a week, but still on a schedule.

Daily Activity Schedule Example:

06h00 – 09h00




Arrival & Check In

Any belongings, medications, food etc. are stored in your dog’s very own “locker”. A quick health check is also done to ensure that your dog is in tiptop shape and ready for a day of fun and games! Dogs are then taken into various play areas chosen on the individual dog’s energy level and size to enjoy supervised free play with their buddies.

09h00 – 11h30




Activities

Each day we have a different activity for the dogs – bubble chasing, soccer, paw painting, ball pit digging, scent games etc. All games have been designed by a highly qualified canine behaviourist to ensure that the games are stimulating, fun and most importantly safe.

11h30 – 13h00




Lunch/Nap

After all that activity the dogs enjoy a nap on a comfortable bed and lunch is given to the puppies. The more active dogs, who aren’t yet ready for a nap, enjoy a wind-down period in one of the grassed shaded areas where they can enjoy a daydream or two.

13h00 – 15h00




Free Play

The dogs have their second bout of free play in one of the many camps, including the water park and dognasium!

15h00 – 18h00




Home Time

Dogs are readied for collection by their guardians. Dogs are either given the chance to rest in peace on a bed or they can enjoy some last-minute play with their buddies. A light brush and wipe helps to get the dogs nice and clean and also gives them a relaxing end to their busy day. For some dogs their day is simply not complete without a last cuddle from their carer
