Bark2school are pleased to announce their new dog day care services - the only dedicated commercial dog day care in Gosport.
Bark2school's priority to all of their owners is to maintain a high standard of care and client satisfaction at all times.
We promise to a provide a professional, caring and above all educational time for your puppies and dogs throughout the day
(sessions) at our Gosport dog day care - with your puppy and dog's welfare always foremost in our minds and daily routine.
Sending your dog to dog day care has many benefits for your dog. Now you don't have to feel guilty about leaving your dog at home whilst you go out to work for long periods of time because they could come to us and have some fun and enjoy themselves.
Did you know that by your dog attending a dog day care centre, rather than being on his/her own in the day whilst you are at work can possibly:
Eliminate Owner-Absent Behavioural Problems
Dogs by nature are highly social animals. When a dog becomes isolated for long periods of time, their mental health may suffer due to increased stress levels. This can result in many behavioural problems occurring (see below).
A dog (like a human) can become sad or depressed when left alone with nothing to do or anybody to talk to - just like most of us!
Enhance and Develop Better Social Skills
Day care is such a great idea to help your dog enhance and develop better social skills. Regular play with other dogs (but in an educational way rather than a 'free for all') will build on your dog's socialisation skills and eliminate owner-absent behavioural problems; resulting in a calmer, relaxed, more confident dog.
Exercise and Socialisation
Day care provides your dog with regular session of play time throughout the day which allows them to express normal dog behaviour. Your dog will have the opportunity to interact, meet and play with other dogs - but we place a great emphasis on education and interaction, so each and every dog will always have time to be introduced to their new doggy friends, matching dogs to their individual personalities and needs. Your dog will have fun, but at the same time ensuring that the "play-time" is monitored very carefully to avoid your dog becoming stressed, worried or over tired.
During the day whilst you are away at work, your dog doesn't have to stay at home alone. All our dog day care team at our centre will interact with your dog on a regularly scheduled basis. Offering human-dog playtime and interaction. Training and mental stimulation sessions, a brush and a gentle massage. Not forgetting their walks and field play time with members of our team.
Sometimes it can be difficult to understand the "play" that dogs do and the way they communicate with each other. Our team are experienced with all breeds and sizes, and our main trainer is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) together with trainee trainers, and other members of the team - will be able to observe and understand each and every one of the dog's body language and communication skills, and adapt the group play accordingly to ensure we maintain a high standard and safety for your dog - and that your dog feels safe, comfortable and relaxed in the day care environment.
Relief from boredom
Giving your dog plenty of exercise and mental stimulation will go some way to relief boredom. However if you have to leave your dog for hours on end whilst you are at work - your dog will be alone and potentially become bored - which could possibly set your dog up for unwanted behaviours such as destructives, barking, whining, howling, toileting, and separation anxiety - so why not avoid any of these behaviours occurring by sending your dog to our dog day centre. You will come home to a much happier, relaxed, contented dog.
Is a dog day care centre good for all dogs?
Possibly not as not all dogs are appropriate day care candidates. Just because they are a social specifies doesn't mean all dogs get along with each other. Humans are social species and we certainly don't all get along! It's important that we evaluate your dog's personality and behaviour to determine if he/she has the potential to do well at the dog day care centre. If your dog plays well with other dogs, not over boisterous with other dogs, not worried around other dogs or worried about being separated from owners, then the day care may be the right choice.
How do you know if your dog would like to attend our dog day care centre?
If you are unsure as to whether your dog would like to join us at the centre and have the opportunity to interact with other dogs and the team, we would be delighted to meet you and your dog to discuss this further. You can book a free introductory meeting with our head trainer to determine what is right for you and your dog.
All dogs prior to registering for the dog day care will require a free registration meeting to take place with one of our staff to discuss your
requirements, and at the same time assess your dog's suitability and socialisation skills around other dogs.
Please note that we are unable to accept dogs that display unsociable behaviours around other dogs/humans. However, if you do have a behavioural problem with your dog and would like to discuss this in more detail, please speak to one of our members of staff.
Discount offered on full time places (not ½ days) to all new owners for the first 3 months of the dog day care contract.
