Finding the Doggy Daycare that is the best fit for you and your dog is important. Here are eight points to consider before you enroll your pup:

1. Staff

Make sure that staff members are trained to work with dogs and that there are enough people to supervise the dogs. Ask about the amount and type of experience of the employees and the dog to staff ratio.

2. Maintenance

Find out how the daycare cleans and disinfects its facility throughout the day and at the end of the day. Look to see if the play areas and crates are in good condition, clean, and safe for your dog.

3. Emergency

Inquire about the daycare’s procedure for managing an emergency. Whether an emergency affects one dog or the daycare as a whole, you’ll want to know that there is a plan for your dog and that he or she will continue to be in good care.

4. Clientele

You may want to look into the process of how the daycare accepts a newcomer. An interview process of a potential newcomer assesses whether or not the daycare staff and current dog attendees are a good fit.
