Daycare at Wiggly Tails
What does your dog do all day while your at work? He/she waits for you to get home! Do you find it difficult to address your dogs needs after a hard day at work? Being left alone all day can be highly stressful on a dog and can lead to problematic behaviors (i.e. chewing on furniture) as well as health issues (i.e. obesity from inactivity).
Dogs are extremely social animals that need contact with people and other dogs. Our day care is a dog park like environment where dogs can play freely with each other. While at day care your dog can run, play, or just chill out and get pampered.
With 30,000 square feet of space, your dog is guaranteed to get plenty of exercise. Our inside and outside play areas are very spacious. Unlike many other places, Wiggly Tails has an enormous backyard. Your dog can run and play or go explore the brush and wooded areas! Water is always available, toys of all shapes and sizes, brushings, pools (in warm weather) and of course plenty of TLC!
What about little guys and girls? Well, we have a little tyke area both inside and outside that our junior size clients can be grouped in. Senior citizens and dogs that don't want a lot of activity also can be grouped together. There they may rest and receive extra love and attention.
Just like with children, dogs can get grumpy if they are overtired. That's why we have a mandatory 2 hour naptime for all dogs. Nap-time is from 12-2 pm. At this time we turn off the lights, feed whichever dogs need lunch, and lock the doors. No pick-ups, drop-offs, tours or dog interviews are given at this time. Nap-time is extremely important for our pooches as it gives them a chance to recharge their batteries for the afternoon.
When dogs play together it provides a different type of physical and mental stimulation that we humans can't give. A tired dog is a well-behaved dog ... and all of our dogs will leave tired but happy. We can't take your place, but we can provide the surrogate love
