Dog daycare can help many puppies grow up to become well-balanced dogs, but adult dogs who are new to the social scene can benefit, too.

Regularly attending daycare can help your dog live their happiest, healthiest life, and who doesn’t want more joy-filled years with their best friend? Here are five reasons to consider daycare for your adult dog.

1. Consistency

Having a consistent routine for your dog can help them thrive. Routines help dogs better understand what is expected of them, which can in turn help reinforce good behavior, reduce anxiety, and increase your dog’s confidence. To make a routine easy for you and your dog, Dogtopia offers a variety of weekly daycare plans, which allows you to choose what best suits your and your pup’s needs.

2. Socialization

Socialization is one of the most important parts of helping your dog become a well-adjusted adult. Open play in a safe, controlled environment can help your dog become more confident when encountering new experiences. At Dogtopia, every dog goes through a Meet & Greet to evaluate whether they are ready to socialize in open play, and playrooms are grouped by size, personality, and play style to help make sure that your dog is safe and comfortable.

3. Exercise

Dogs need to get their daily activity in, just like people do. Getting more daily exercise helps keep dogs in good body condition—and dogs at Dogtopia get upwards of 60,000 “steps” a day. Plenty of playtime also helps dogs maintain a healthy weight, a happy mind, and get a good night’s sleep.


4. Education

Dogs are always learning, and daycare can help them learn the right behaviors. Dogtopia’s certified Canine Coaches add enrichment activities to their open-play time to improve behavior and manners and keep dogs engaged. This can look like training simple commands (like sit, stay, and name recall), Follow the Leader, and positive encouragement to reward excellent social skills.

5. Fun

We’ve all seen our dogs get the “zoomies.” Dogs love to run and play, and daycare lets dogs be dogs in a safe, supervised environment. Dogtopia daycares often host themed parties and arts and craft days to raise money for the Dogtopia Foundation, which enables dog owners to give back to three worthy causes. As a dog owner, you can also check out all the fun your pets are having throughout the day via live webcams.
