Choosing Doggie Daycares and Kennels: Prices, Safety, and Services
Considering doggie daycare or kennels? WebMD gets you started with information on cost, safety tips, and more.
And if your dog hasn’t been boarded for a while, and you’re leaving on a
long-term vacation, it’s probably best to board your dog for a night or two
first, just to get them used to it, before you leave for a long time.
Q: How can I tell if my dog is enjoying doggie daycare?
A: He should come home tired, but happy and relaxed, not agitated. There’s a
difference between coming home tired from having fun and coming home tired from
being stressed. So it depends on how the dog is acting. If he seems happy, his
tail is wagging and he’s eager to go in there in the morning, then he probably
is enjoying it. But if when you get there he puts on his brakes, he doesn’t
want to go through the door, that’s a bad sign. He’s either going too often, or
going to the wrong doggie daycare.
