Daycare

Why Choose Daycare?

When you walk in the door after a hard day at work, does your pet demand your attention and not give you a moments rest? Your dog may be trying to tell you, “I’m bored!” Without something constructive to do when you leave home, your dog will eventually find some source of entertainment!! And odds are, it won’t be something that is very entertaining to you!

Red Fern Pet Lodge’s daycare is a fun experience for all dogs – we tailor each day to meet the needs of dogs; focusing on enrichment whether for fun, exercise or socialization. Our group options offer safe interactions and are led by our knowledgeable staff. Each group of like sized dogs rotate through different paddocks and indoor play areas so your dog will never get bored.

Benefits of Daycare

- Dogs are able to socialize with other dogs in a pack setting and learn appropriate social behavior.

- Dogs are mentally and physically stimulated, which often helps overall behavior and diminishes boredom & anxiety.

- Daycare provides exercise and lots of energy expenditure to keep your dog happy and healthy.

- Everyone benefits from structure and so do dogs! Daycare provides routine for your pup, even by just going 2-3 times a week.

- Your dog will receive lots of TLC & affection when they come to RFPL daycare, relieving anxiety and building meaningful relationships.
