Dog Daycare

Let Your Dog Party Like an Animal

We have news for you: your dog is a party animal, and Dog Daycare at Man's Best Friend is the perfect place for them to let loose.
Dog Daycare is vital to socialization, physical health, and psychological health. No matter your dog's size, age, or breed, they will deeply benefit from some raucous playtime with their fellow pups.

A dog behavior enrollment test is required. A quick analysis of your dog’s temperament and suitability is assessed to best place them in a daycare group and then, “Laissez les bons temps rouler!” (That’s Poodle for “Let the good times roll”). Check out our Dog Daycare programs at our Carrollton and Houston locations.

The Importance of Socialization

I love this place and so does my 15 year old Pyrenees, Trixie. She lost her 12 year companion last year and if it was not for this place, I think my golden girl would have left her place in this world with a broken heart. You see, my Pyrenees has a natural disposition as a guardian dog and she lost the one she lived to protect. Going to dog camp allows her a sense of renewed purpose. Each day that I drop her off at day camp, she is greeted by name, by familiar staff, and she leads the way, without even turning back to say “ Bye, Mom”. That’s okay — I know she is confident and secure in her surroundings and can’t wait to get to “get to work”; although, I’ve heard a few stories of her taking lengthy snoozers during the day. It’s her time and she is allowed to do what she wants to do with her time. If you are looking for an affordable place with a friendly staff who will love your babies like their own, I recommend you give this place a try.

The Importance of Socialization

Proper socialization with other dogs and other humans is critical to having a happy, healthy, and well-adjusted pet. With so many people spending more time at home in 2020, your furry family member may now be home alone for long periods of the day for the first time in a while, and the stress of solitude may cause anti-social habits such as destructive chewing, persistent digging, excessive barking, or other signs of separation anxiety. Pets may also show signs of stress such as drooling, attempts to escape, and pacing.

If your pet is suffering from separation anxiety or simply the boredom of home isolation after many months of company, bring them to daycare with us! Daycare provides your loved one with the pack environment they are accustomed to, creating a trusted second home for your pet while you are away. Bringing your pup to daycare with us provides all the physical, mental, and social exercise your dog needs. Give us a call to learn more about the socialization benefits of daycare.
