‘School’ for dogs!

Going back in time for 10-15 years, no one would have imagined leaving their dog in "school" before going to work. The modern way of life forces us to be away from home for so many hours so that we can not offer our dog what he needs most. A walk beyond the square of the neighborhood, spiritual relaxation and especially the human company..we ourselves!

Areas that take care of our dog's day are springing up from everywhere. They mainly promise socialization and play as long as we can not be with our four-legged friend. It is simple. You leave your dog on the road to work and pick him up as soon as you are done. You can also leave it for two or three hours until you finish your shopping.

The advantages are many if the framework is right. Contact with other dogs, play, physical and mental relaxation and interaction with different people are key factors in the healthy development of our dog's personality.
How many times have you heard the phrase a tired dog is a good dog? Not always .. Just because your dog is not heard from again at home, does not necessarily mean that it happens for a good reason. Stress can be just as tiring…
"But my dog loves it. Every time he realizes that we are going there he is very happy! ”Μενος Happy or overly excited and anxious?

The difference between suitable and unsuitable space can often be indistinguishable. The right environment cultivates the dog's calm and confidence, reduces uncontrollable excitement and prevents aggression. The time the dog spends there - among other things - is an experience of learning and enriching social skills. We do not just "throw" all the dogs together and let them have fun or solve it themselves. This is NOT socializing, it is not fun and of course it can be very dangerous for the safety of our dog.
Just as lack of stimuli can be harmful, so too can overexposure or uncontrollable excitement and aggression in your dog or others. Without rules and trained staff who can understand behavioral issues, many dogs become victims, the worries and anxieties become more intense, as the dog has no support from those who are supposed to take care of him and take care of his safety. And the most common: he ends up spending his day alone in a cage.

Keep in mind that when dogs adopt a behavior that is repetitive, it is very difficult to forget it. We can only spend time and energy to replace it with some alternative behavior.

Carefully choose the area where you will leave your dog:

  • Do market research
  • Visit the premises and judge the cleanliness and facilities
  • Ask for information such as the maximum number of dogs kept at any one time
  • Ask if the staff is trained - it is completely different to supervise a group of dogs by being able to identify and prevent unpleasant situations
  • Watch your dog's body language in the area

Think in the same way that you would look for a place to leave your child!
