Benefits of Doggie Daycare

Peninsula Pups Doggie Daycare provides numerous benefits for both dogs and their parents!

Benefits for your dog

* Exercise, exercise, exercise!  Running and playing helps maintain firm muscles, cardiovascular fitness and a healthy weight.  It also releases pent-up energy that may show itself as destructive behavior in your home.  You will pick up a calmer and more satisfied dog than you dropped off.

* Socialization – Dogs by nature are pack animals and require canine socialization. Peninsula Pups provides the environment for dogs to learn how to properly interact with other dogs. For example, the best way a puppy can learn to inhibit its mouthing/biting behavior is by rough-housing and play nipping with other dogs. The other dogs will let the puppy know when they are exerting too much pressure on them. To the dogs, it is a natural, non-threatening process.

* All dogs’ exercise and socialization are closely supervised by Handlers. This interaction teaches the dogs proper manners around humans and builds trust. Dogs that attend Peninsula Pups create close relationships with both their canine and human friends, which is essential to a well-balanced dog.

* Our Certified Dog Trainer, Colin Keith, is on staff during the day supervising the dogs. Your dog will receive basic training just by being at the daycare, such as learning to sit calmly before walking through an entrance or to drop a toy after fetching it.

Benefits for you

* One of Peninsula Pups' greatest benefits to a parent is peace of mind that your dog is in a safe place and having fun, fun and more fun! No more guilt for having to leave your dog cooped up all day in the house alone.

* Your relationship with your dog will be enhanced due to their physical and mental needs being met at the daycare.

* After a long day at work, many parents do not have the time or energy to exercise and play with their dog. Peninsula Pups gives you a respite for the evening. You will be able to spend a nice, quiet evening with your dog.

* Since we are open until 6:30pm, parents have time to run errands or socialize after work instead of running home to “let the dog out.”

* Maybe you would like to own a dog, but think you cannot because of your busy schedule. Peninsula Pups could be the solution that allows you to have a forever friend!
