Dogs Sleep, Play, Sleep, Play
Don't be surprised if you catch your dog napping . Normally during the day at home, while their owners are gone, dogs are asleep, so it is normal for them to want to take some naps here as well. Also, play comes in cycles. Sometimes a whole group will be playing, other times they may all resting. Some dogs have difficulty regulating their own play which makes breaks essential. 8-hours of non-stop play leaves a dog worn out and grumpy. Our staff enforces breaks sporadically throughout the day to help each dog get the rest he or she needs.
What does it mean when the staff rotates the daycare dogs?
It is important for playgroups to always be safe and fun. In order to do that we are careful to keep playgroups from getting too large and rowdy.
We have set numbers that we allow out at one time in each group. Once we hit that number we rotate the extra dogs so that we can keep the numbers at a safe level. We find this works well for most dogs because it gives them ample time to rest and catch their breath before it's playgroup time again.
Lunch and Nap Time
From approximately 12:45pm - 2:00pm almost all the dogs will have a nap (slightly different time on weekends). Dogs that have lunch will be fed at this time. This is also when the staff does their mid-day cleaning and their shift change meeting.
