Benefits of Dog Daycare

As loving pet parents, we all desire to consistently give our pets the care and attention they need and deserve. But when life happens and we have to focus on other commitments such as work, school, errands, medical needs or social outings, sometimes we need a trusted partner to help out. That’s where our dog daycare programs at Paw Commons Encinitas come in. Whether your dog’s attendance is daily, weekly or on an as-needed basis, we offer a fun, safe environment for your dog to enjoy and peace of mind for you.

Dogs are social creatures and benefit from regular interaction with other dogs, and they also need plenty of exercise. When they are home alone all day, a lot of dogs develop a sedentary lifestyle. But just like humans, our pets are better off with a little more activity and a little less couch time. And if they’re not lying around when you’re gone all day, their boredom may turn into mischief around the house. As they say – if you don’t give your dog a job to do, they will become self-employed!
