Hi everyone, I just wanted some advice on doggy daycare. I work permanently from home but had to go into the office one day last week, my puppy is 3 and a half months old. I had no one else to look after him so researched doggy daycare, found one local to me that had good reviews. Spoke to the owner beforehand and everything seemed fine. I wanted to go and visit beforehand but because of COVID restrictions wasn’t able to. I took him there last week but when I picked him up he was so so exhausted he wasn’t even excited to see me. They said he didn’t settle all day and barked A LOT (he very rarely does this at home). I asked them if he followed any sort of schedule and they said no, he was just playing with the other dogs all day. Obviously very overstimulated and a new environment and wouldn’t chill out unless he was forced. The days after he was a complete nightmare at home, chewing everything (never normally does this very much at all) wouldn’t settle in his crate when normally takes himself in there, had toilet accidents (again never normally does this). I am a bit sceptical about taking him anywhere like that again, I don’t know how they integrated him with the other dogs as he hasn’t really met any other dogs before that. They just handed him back to me and that was it. I had to message them afterwards to ask questions and she just said he was naughty and barked a lot which I was very shocked at, of course he would be naughty if he’s been awake for 11 hours non stop! Not sure if I’m just being a bit paranoid but I’ve worked so hard trying to get him into a routine and training him etc and I feel like taking him there might just regress everything I’ve done as they just seem the complete opposite. They have a lot of dogs themselves so thought they would know a lot about puppies etc and their needs.
