Why do doggy Daycare?
- Great way for socializing and tiring young active pups!
- Daycare for puppies creates well rounded adults and allows for healthy opportunities to socialize with other pets of various sizes, colors, ages, and new people which is so important to a dogs mental well-being. Good socialization generally helps prevent anti-social behavior, increasing their confidence in the world and mellows their temperament.
- Daycare offers a safe and constructive place for your dog to have fun burning off energy, running and playing while you are at work or shopping.
- Fat dog? While doggy napping is allowed at daycare, most choose to play the day away with their pals!
- Your pet will be surrounded by staff who are passionate about animals, and will arrange constructive games, bring toys, and plan activities for the animals to make the most of their time at the Inn. Weather depending we might go outside for play, or stay indoors.
- Being in doggy daycare a few times a week will keep your pup mentally stimulated, physically active; meaning he will be less likely to get into destructive problems at home.
- Your pup will also be exhausted by the time he is picked up, meaning you will get a free, no walk required night!
- You get peace of mind knowing that the dog is receiving care, without worrying about him digging through the trash, barking all day or night, or looking for an escape route.
- The down side is your pet may not want to leave Ruffin’ Inn at the end of the day when you come to pick him or her up!
