How to Evaluate a Dog Day Care Center
All dogs require attention and supervision. The drawback is that it's not always possible to provide the care yourself, especially with a busy work schedule. Leaving your dog alone at home is one option, but this can lead them to become stressed and anxious; dogs are social animals that need environmental stimulation, just as humans do. Dog day care centers are a great solution to this problem. The way it works is just as you might expect: you drop off your dog in the morning at the center, where they get to play and socialize with other dogs until you pick them up after work.
