After You Get Home
COME BACK SOON!
Fully interactive pet daycare is designed to be challenging both physically and psychologically for the dogs. DON’T BE ALARMED if your dog comes home and sleeps for hours on end and appears lethargic. He isn’t sick; he’s worn out from all the playing!
The excitement of being home may make your pet pant and appear very thirsty. We always provide fresh water at all times, but he may be need to drink more water when he arrives home and throughout the night, especially if he isn’t used to all the activity that comes along with fully interactive dog daycare.
You may notice your dog has minor scratches on him. Again, DON’T BE ALARMED. He was just interacting and playing with his new friends the best way he can—with his paws and his mouth
We have a variety of floor surfaces at pet daycare including concrete, rubber, beach gravel, asphalt, dirt, just to name a few. Your dog may have sore feet or abrasions for a few days if he’s accustomed to carpet or soft surfaces. They will toughen over time.
It is also not unusual for your dog to be limping or favoring one side for a few days. Like any athlete, he just has sore muscles from all the exercise.
By the end of a busy week at dog daycare or after an overnight visit at our dog hotel, your dog may smell a little “doggier” than usual. If your dog comes home tired, smelly, and dirty, it means he had a great day at Hounds Town. We offer a full service dog grooming menu designed to send your pup home smelling like roses, so please inquire about a bath upon check-in.
If you have any questions, just ask us! We always welcome parents to call during the day and check up on their pup and to visit you location’s Facebook page for photos.
