Welcome back to the Eagle Animal Hospital and Pet Resort blog! In our initial blog post, we took a look at some of the benefits of enrolling your dog in our doggy daycare program here in Northland. Not only does daycare for dogs provide your canine companion with continuous human interaction while you’re at work, school, or on the go, but it also eases the pressure we pet owners place on ourselves to rush around when we know our furry family members are waiting at home to be let out or fed. Doggy daycare may also help limit the time a dog spends in the car waiting for their owner while they shop, eat lunch with a friend, or run other errands. Let’s look at a few more reasons why doggy daycare is a helpful benefit to busy pet parents in today’s post.


Doggy daycare provides a safe and supervised environment where dogs can socialize during playtime. Our dog daycare facility features indoor and outdoor areas where your dog can meet and play with other dogs while expressing normal dog behaviors. This gives dogs a chance to socialize and interact with each other in a controlled environment, rather than sitting at home alone while they wait for their owner to return home.

Exercise and Play to Fight Boredom

Speaking of exercise and playtime, doggy daycare gives pups the chance to get exercise, instead of having to stay trapped in a dog crate for an extended amount of time. Dog crates are great for training, and provide pets with a safe and comfortable space to lay while their owner is away or while they sleep; however, kennels do not offer your dog much room to move and they certainly can’t run and play in their crate. Doggy daycare is a great way to keep your furry friend active so that they get the exercise they need for strong muscles and bones, and to live a happy life.

Peace of Mind

As pet parents, we worry about the health and wellbeing of our fur babies and want nothing but the best for them. Therefore, one of the most important benefits of daycare for dogs is it provides you with peace of mind in knowing that your pup is being cared for while you’re away from them. Our doggy daycare is supervised by compassionate and knowledgeable pet care specialists who are passionate about caring for dogs. Each and every pup who stays with us is treated with kindness, has constant access to water, gets plenty of playtime and exercise, and is able to interact with humans and other dogs, which combats loneliness.
