A professional, well-run dog daycare offers many advantages for dogs and pet owners who work all day and don’t want their dogs to be alone. Dog daycare alleviates boredom and loneliness, and can offer a safe, interactive and fun, cage-free outlet for high-energy dogs.

Dogs are typically dropped off at daycare in the morning and picked up at the end of the workday. Many owners say they find their dogs pleasantly tired and ready to relax for the rest of the evening.
