I've searched the forums, and found a few threads on this topic, but was hoping others that have used it might share their thoughts and experiences on doggy day care. Maya just started attending a facility this week, 2 days per week, for a half day session. I am really just doing this for her to get some extra exercise, as she is a very high energy dog and prone to destructive behavior. The winter months in the midwest limit our outdoor time (I know, I'm a wimp when it comes to cold!), so this seemed like a perfect solution to get some energy out. I'm impressed with the facility, they have indoor and outdoor time on every hour, lots of play time, good staff to dog ratio, clean facility, require all dogs to be on preventatives year round, etc. I see that some people have had health issues with their pets--I'm a bit concerned about this aspect. I have to admit that Maya is like a different dog in the afternoons and evenings following that half day session. Big naps and lots of rest time. She still wants to play and interact with us, but she's not a maniac like before. So, looking for any and all feedback, positive or negative on your experiences!
