Daycare at Big Dogs

September 6, 2019

Dogs just want to have fun! Daycare We like to feel that we are set apart from most daycare places. We let the dogs play as they see fit. Paws in the air, chase, etc. As long as it doesn’t turn into a fight, we let them do their thing! We watch their behavior.

A Little About What Makes Big Dogs Daycare Unique

April 28, 2019

Most dog daycare owners separate dogs by size. We separate them by social or nonsocial. We let all dogs 30 pounds and up play together in the same yard or the same room. We find that if dogs are kept active and supervised they play well together, no matter if one is 30 pounds and the other is 100 pounds! Now of course if one dog isn’t that social and is discriminatory, then they will not play well in this environment right off. In this case, we give timeouts on a leash and do one on ones to condition them... View Article
