How can dog day care alleviate my fears?

Working dog owners often worry about leaving their dogs at home. They are concerned about their pet’s overall well-being and health, and they may fret about the long hours of loneliness their dog has to endure while their owners are at work or running errands for the day. Owners are also concerned about leaving their dogs at home at times because of the fear of messes or destruction their pet may cause when he or she goes without proper supervision.

At Downtown St. Pete Vet Clinic, we provide a viable option for working dog owners to alleviate their concerns. We provide doggy day care services in St. Petersburg for anyone looking to keep their dogs safe during the day.

How much does dog day care cost, and what are the rewards?

While you are at work or otherwise spending a day out, your pet may be missing out on some crucial time to exercise, play, and interact. Dogs who do not have stay-at-home owners live rather sedentary lives in comparison to dogs that have more opportunities to actively play throughout the day.

At our doggy day care, we provide socialization and exercise for dogs of all sizes, which ensure greater health and longevity of life. Your dog will have an opportunity to play with other dogs and our friendly staff, all the while being fed and hydrated properly. While they have the opportunity for a lot of cooperative playtime, dogs will also have individual space if they don’t particularly like to play with other dogs or are afraid of new environments.

What makes dog day care at DTSP Vet Clinic different?

Besides the health benefits we mentioned above, many busy dog owners in St. Petersburg will enjoy our dog day care over others because of our dedication to your pets. While other day-time or extended-hours kennels house your pets in small cages, we provide your pets with an interactive environment, which is known to benefit their health and well-being.

Dogs that have regular opportunities to run around with other dogs are generally happier, as they are better able to cope with depression and separation anxiety. Your dog will get all the benefits of being able to run around in a supervised, safe, and structured area, providing you with relief knowing your pet is in good hands.

Of course, we are happy to care for the wellness of your dog or puppy too. Please browse our dog veterinary services to see how we can help maintain the health of your beloved friend. Our reviews give testimony to the loving care we give all our visitors and patients!
