Did you know? 85% of dogs show some kind of anxious reaction when left alone. (source) Often, signs such as howling, chewing, destruction and digging don’t begin until after your dog has been alone for about 5-35 minutes. Your pup could be experiencing separation anxiety without you even knowing it!
We take Spike to doggy daycare regularly. He's a social butterfly and it's important to us that he socializes with his canine homies at least once a week, in addition to the adventures we go on as a family. If you're looking for a dog sitter while you're at work, school or away from home during the day, DogVacay has just launched Daycare here in the Seattle area!
DogVacay is an online community that connects dog owners with over 20,000 vetted and insured pet sitters across the US & Canada. All reservations include vet insurance, 24/7 customer support, and daily photo updated of your pooch enjoying his vacay. You can finally travel with peace of mind, at prices half the price of the local kennel.
Just like their overnight boarding service, DogVacay sitters will watch your dog in their home or yours while you're gone. Daycare provides great benefits like exercise, less separation anxiety, and socialization with other pups, which is great for puppies or newly adopted dogs.
