Our Structured Daycare offers playgroups with dogs that have similar size and play style as your pup. Daycare also includes maintaining training skills like coming when called, impulse control, place command, appropriate play, and more. Typical doggie daycares allow free for all play all day with inappropriate greetings, over arousal, and no rest time. This can increase anxiety, dog reactivity, and reinforce poor social skills. Structured Daycare provides all the perks of daycare including socialization and playtime, but adding in the needed structure for dogs to be successful around dogs outside of daycare.
