Children and dogs – they’re not all that different! If you left a toddler at home all day every day, there’d be destruction, chaos and tantrums. Just like childcare for your pooch, Rural Paws dog day care retreat in Welcome Bay in Tauranga offers so many benefits, from mental stimulation to good company to a safe space to run around. If you have a four-legged friend at home, here are seven signs that you should send that dog to our daycare.
She’s barking more than usual
If your normally playful pup has upped the ante on the barking front, she might need to burn off excess energy or reacquaint herself with other four-legged friends. Send her to our Tauranga doggy daycare where she can bark to her hearts content, and more than likely she will get it out of her system so peace and quiet is restored at home.
You haven’t been able to go for walks lately
The weather’s cold and wet, you’re busy with work, you have a cold, it’s too dark at night…whatever the reason, if you’re in the midst of a dog walking lull, it’s time to take him to dog daycare. Give yourself a break while also giving your pup the exercise he needs by sending him to our rural retreat.
She’s looking a little sad
Dogs need mental stimulation as well as physical exercise. If your pooch is giving you puppy dog eyes or looking a little down, a day spent in the company of other dogs, attentive humans and an abundance of activities can absolutely perk her back up.
You notice a change in behaviour
Boredom can lead to destruction of your favourite chair, accidents in the house, or other changes in behaviour. If your pup’s stuck at home alone for much of the day, he’s bound to get bored. Send him to us – minds and bodies are kept nice and busy at our dog daycare in Tauranga!
You haven’t seen another dog for a while
Dogs are social creatures and need interaction with other dogs regularly. Socialisation isn’t only important for their happiness, it will also stop them from becoming overly fearful or aggressive with other dogs.
It’s her birthday!
We all like to spend our birthdays in the company of friends. Give your fluffy friend a memorable celebration by sending her to Rural Paws – his friends will love barking “happy birthday” to her!
You’re going on a holiday
While you have fun exploring, your dog should be doing the same. A stint at Rural Paws is like a holiday for your pups – they’ll be happy and well looked after, and just think of all the stories you will share with each other when you return back home.
