What to Look For In A Doggy Daycare Okemos

Not all pet owners can stay home all day. Still, there are many working pet parents who want to make sure their dogs get all the love, attention, and physical activity they need to stay happy and healthy. Thankfully, our Okemos, MI, dog daycare can give you peace of mind while you're at work.

At Dog Gone Fun, we also offer a unique Puppy Program which includes daycare, training, and socialization all in one program.

Here’s what else our staff can provide for your dog and what to look for in general when it comes to doggy daycare.

1. Rules to Protect Your Dog's Health

Any reputable dog daycare will make sure their pets are well taken care of at all times. Ask a prospective dog sitter what protocols they have in place to protect your dog's health in the event of an emergency. The daycare you choose for your dog should only accept dogs with proof of vaccination. The last thing you want is for your dog to get sick because another pet owner wasn't responsible.

In addition, a daycare or dog boarding facility should make sure all dogs are current with their vaccinations, which include rabies and distemper. The dogs we accept must also be on monthly heartworm prevention, a monthly flea treatment regimen, and have an annual negative fecal test. We care about our dogs' health and it shows in the way we clean and disinfect our facility daily, regardless of how many dogs have visited.

2. Proper Supervision

Puppies and dogs should always be supervised. That way, staff members will be able to break up the rare dispute or make sure your dog gets emergency medical care. Part of the experience of doggy daycare is that your dog is able to interact and play with other dogs.

We assign dogs to play groups based on size, temperament, and play style. While your dog is playing with other dogs, they will be under proper supervision so they can enjoy a safe, fun experience.

3. Clean Facilities

You should be able to take a tour of the facilities before deciding if it is the right choice for your dog. We are happy to schedule a tour of our Okemos dog daycare facility. All you need to do is give us a call at (517) 657-4300. You can count on our facilities being clean and safe for your dog. To maintain clean play environments for our dogs we clean and disinfect daily, regardless of how many dogs have visited. We also clean toys, beds, cots, bowls, and blankets.

4. Compassionate Trained Staff

While looking for a daycare, pay special attention to how their staff members treat animals. It's a red flag to see staff members using strong physical or verbal reprimands to reinforce boundaries. Our staff members love dogs and have the proper training to give them the care and attention they need. Whether your dog prefers play time or snuggles, our dog trainers and handlers will make sure your dog has an awesome time.
