Enrolling in Daycare
To ensure a safe, healthy place for everyone - human and canine - each dog must complete a "Meet & Greet" before attending Daycare or Overnight Care at the Bellyrub Klub. This is a brief social visit, by appointment, so we can observe your dog's behaviors and discuss his/her needs. We have an open play environment, so all our furry friends must be able get along with each other.
If you'd like your canine fed while at the Klub, be sure to bring his/her food. Keeping their food brand and type consistent helps prevent a stomach upset or allergic reaction.
The Science Behind Doggy Play
According to animal behaviorist Karen London, these are some of the valuable things dogs get through play:
- motor control
- bite inhibition
- body awareness
- self control
- overall sense of security and happiness
Play also has an important role in creating and maintaining relationships with dogs as well as humans. These benefits cannot be taught - they must be experienced through play making it an invaluable part of a dog's development and well-being.
