Doggy daycare and dog training can be a lot of fun for your pet and doggy daycare has the added benefit of helping your dog socialize and play while you’re away. Whether you are dropping them off for a few days or a few hours, finding the right fit for your furry family member is critical for success.

Here are a few things to research when looking for doggy daycare and dog training in Vista, California! 

What is The Dog Training Program? 

At Performance K9 Training, we believe that most behavioral issues can be resolved with a solid foundation of obedience training. Our comprehensive 2-week board and train program that addresses common dog challenges includes:

  • Walking politely on a leash (i.e., not pulling on the leash, and being in a correct position)
  • Recall (dog returns when called)
  • Go to your place command
  • All skills in the Basic Behavior Modification Program are learned under partial distraction and partial off-leash.

Be sure that the program you pick will address the behaviors you wish to correct in your dog and look out for any red flags in the dog trainer. 

What Does The Doggy Daycare Program Offer?

Since there are a variety of daycare options, it is important to ask what is included in a Doggy Daycare program so you make sure that you pick the right one for your furry family member.

Here are a few questions to ask: 

  • Do they have trained staff supervising the daycare? 
  • Do they have a daily schedule for the dogs? 
  • Are the dogs separated by size? 
  • How do they communicate with pet parents? 

If the answers to these questions are no or do not have an answer, you might want to keep looking! 

Do They Have the Right Licenses?

A licensed kennel facility that’s approved by the county’s Animal Control is very important for any daycare, boarding, or board-and-train options that you are considering. There are many people and businesses who advertise these kinds of services, often right out of their home. That sounds simple and convenient, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it is legal or properly licensed to protect the dogs they’re caring for. 

The very best thing you can do for your dog before putting them in daycare is take the time to check out the facility, verify the conditions, and make sure the doggy daycare has the right licensing and insurance in place.
