When your job keeps you working late or you have social plans that keep you away from home all day, it can be challenging to know how best to care for your dog. While some pups may do fine being left at home alone, others require companionship and exercise from other canines in order to feel content when you arrive home – this is why doggy day care queens may provide a convenient solution for both types of pups.
Doggy day care services not only offer your dog(s) a place to spend the day, but some also offer additional services like pick-up/drop-off service, end-of-day baths, puzzle toys and more. When searching for the appropriate doggy day care center for your pup(s), take time to research each location’s staff, facilities and ratings / reviews from other pet parents before selecting one.
New York City pet owners have many options when it comes to doggy day care; from large commercially run facilities with playrooms and kennels to in-home family-operated sitters who take in multiple dogs at once. Furthermore, many traditional kennel-based daycares have abandoned cages or crates altogether in favor of comfy couches with dog beds for napping or group activities in open rooms.
Average costs for doggy daycare range between $501 and $511; prices depend on location and services provided. You should expect to pay more at higher-end facilities that offer amenities like food and treats, midmorning/midafternoon walks and video chat so you can watch your pet during the day. Some facilities also require all dogs be fully vaccinated/health records up-to-date.
