First-Time at a Dog Care Centre? Essential Tips to Get Your Pup Ready

Bringing your pup to a dog care centre for the first time? The anticipation of a new environment, new friends and new routines can initially be overwhelming. However, with the right preparation, it can be a really smooth and enjoyable experience for both of you.

First-Day Jitters

The first day is always the most exciting for new recruits. Yet as protective pup parents, we worry about their safety, how they will adjust, or even the quality of care. 

Understanding the Benefits of Doggy Daycare

Enrolling your dog in a daycare program comes with numerous advantages, namely:

  • A comfortable and safe environment for dogs to develop socialisation skills.
  • A structured routine helps keep dogs engaged.
  • Interactive physical activities and brain-boosting games ensure they remain fit and mentally stimulated. 
  • Peace of mind knowing that all dogs are protected by trained staff during play sessions.
  •  A structured routine keeps dogs engaged, preventing boredom-induced destructive behaviours.

Strengthens the bond between dog and owner.

For busy pet parents, daycares offer flexibility and peace of mind, knowing their furry friend is in expert hands, often with the added convenience of additional services like grooming or training.

Preparing Your Dog for Their First Day

Before the big day:

  1. Pop over for a visit, introduce them to our staff, and let them explore the play areas. This will help reduce anxiety and make the transition smoother.
  2. Ensure medical records are up-to-date, especially vaccinations.
  3. Make sure your dog is on regular flea and tick preventative care.
  4. If your dog has a specific diet or allergies, prepare a list of do’s and don’ts for the daycare staff.
  5. Bring along a familiar toy or blanket for some comfort.
  6. If your dog is on any medications, provide clear instructions on dosage, timing and the necessary meds.
  7. Dogs can pick up on our emotions. Stay calm and know they are in good hands.
