Dogs are social animals and need interaction with other dogs and people on a regular basis to remain happy and healthy. No matter how many hugs and kisses you give them, you can’t escape their sadness when you leave. Dogs don’t understand our human way of life and the many things that get in the way of spending the day with each other. Those that are left to stay at home all day by themselves become bored, frustrated and unhappy. They may exhibit destructive behavior or even suffer from separation anxiety, crying and barking for hours when left alone. They need companionship and exercise for their total well-being. At Jackie’s Play & Stay dogs will spend the day being part of a healthy, happy dog pack that will give them a social outlet. Our daycare service will give pet owners peace of mind knowing that their pup is getting the exercise and socialization that they need and desire. After all, a tired dog is a happy dog.
Dog daycare has become a valuable alternative for many responsible pet owners. Most dog owners love their dogs as a member of the family, and want only the best for them. As we humans pursue our busy lives, our furry family members can spend an average of 8-10 hours a day at home alone. As mentioned above, the lack of adequate stimulation caused by prolonged periods of alone time leads to the development of many common behavioral problems like barking, chewing, separation anxiety, over excitement when their human pack mate returns and even aggression. The sad fact is that a lot of quality, loving, intelligent dogs are relinquished to animal shelters for these reasons. When the vast majority of the problems can be traced back to lack of exercise and mental stimulation
Dogs need to be able to interact in a safe, controlled environment with other friendly dogs. The ability to run and play off leash is absolutely essential to their emotional and physical well-being. Dogs are social animals and require socialization around other dogs and people. This builds positive canine social behavior and an outlet for normal dog behavior. When you see dogs actively involved in a play group at our 14, 000 sq ft facility you will know that they are having the most fun they could possibly have in a positive, loving and safe environment. The can relax on the couches or chairs we have or get wet and swim in the kiddie pools we have for them.
Jackie’s no longer accepts Pit Bulls or Pit Bull mix dogs (we reserve the right to make that determination).
At Jackie’s Play & Stay we clean our play areas and pet suites with disinfectant that is made for dog quarters and kills canine viruses and fungi.
