Dog Daycare

 

The first Doggie Daycare:

The first doggy daycare in the U.S., Yuppie* Puppy Pet Care,  was founded in 1987 in Manhattan (New York) by Joseph Sporn.
*Yuppie - Young Upwardly Mobile Professional
-- "Pets on the Net",  Los Angeles Times, 6 Jan. 1999

Since then, many other clever entrepreneurs have realized that the alliterative* "Doggie Daycare" sounds a lot better than "Dog Kennel", and have followed his example.
*Alliteration - initial rhyme

Doggie Day Care Bad For Puppy?
If these are valid concerns for dogs.... what does this say about daycare and our kids?
(An actual article from the website, Adam's Dog Training and Behavior [dogproblems.com],
which features articles that help with dog training and
behavior). 

 A reader writes:
I recently started taking my puppy to [doggie] daycare...
...our trainer who is helping us says she'll develop separation anxiety if we take her there everyday and won't be able to stay alone at home and be happy. She suggested only letting the puppy go 2-3 times a week and then having her walked other days. Does anyone know if this is good advice?

(The dog-training expert, D. Ames) replied:
 1] I don't want to risk my puppy learning that other puppies can beat up on it, and [just as importantly] I don't want to risk my puppy learning that it can beat up on other puppies.

2] I don't want my puppy learning that playing with/interacting with other puppies or dogs is the highlight of its life. I want my puppy to learn that interacting with humans and relating to humans is the focus of its life.

3] I don't want to have my puppy/dog being exposed to health issues which other puppies/dogs bring with them. [E.g.: viral infection, bacterial infection, parasitic infection, etc.]

4] I don't want to entrust my pup's emotional, mental, physical well-being and development to someone else. They might be the most well-meaning individual. But, accidents happen. These accidents can and often do cause life-long negative effects on puppies...

Doggie Daycare better than Human Childcare?

To their credit, however, at least doggy daycares don't take in puppies before they are weaned.
Unfortunately, the same can't be said for human daycares...
