Dog owners who worry about their dogs being alone in a house or an apartment all day turn to dog care providers or dog day care services to make sure their beloved dog has some company during the day and has someone to feed and walk it. If you have a puppy it’s especially important to find a dog care provider who is experienced in puppy care. Whether you have a small Yorkie puppy or a big Great Dane puppy, finding the right puppy care provider is crucial to your puppy’s development.

What Does A Dog Care Provider Do?

Dog care providers are people who will come to your home and walk your dog during the day at pre-arranged times. They may also play with your dog, feed your dog, or provide grooming and skin care services for your dog. If your dog has a long or thick coat and requires extensive hair care or multiple pet supplies to maintain their coat you might want to look for a dog care provider who is trained in grooming or dog hair care as well as general dog care.

What Is Dog Day Care?

Dog day care is patterned after children’s day care. Dog owners drop their dogs off in the morning at a dog day care center staffed by highly trained professionals who specialize in dog care. The dogs are walked, fed, and given the chance to play with other dogs under supervision of the dog care staff until evening when the owners return to take them home.

Since more people are working longer hours at their jobs dog day cares are becoming very popular and are popping up all over the country. You can search on the Internet for dog day care centers all over the country from Los Angeles to Mukwonago, or from New Jersey to Waukesha. A great dog day care center in Mukwonago is the Lucky Dog dog day care center.

Which Is Better, Dog Day Care Or A Dog Care Provider?

The simple answer is, whichever is right for your dog. Some dogs are anxious when they are away from their familiar home surroundings and don’t like being dog day care. Timid dogs would probably do better with a private dog care provider. Outgoing or playful dogs with a lot of energy would probably do best in a dog day care where they would get lots of opportunity to interact with dogs and humans and would have lots of chances to play. No one knows your dog better than you. You will know which one is right for your dog.
