What does this give you?
Well, why not hear from a couple of our daycare providers
I love having a doggy daycare because of all the different types of dogs I get to meet. They are all so different as soon as they come in through the gate they are so super happy to play with their friends: it’s great to see all the dogs socialize together. It’s so lovely when new dogs come along. Some of them can be quite nervous at first but it’s very rewarding seeing them come out of their shell and develop. But seeing them develop, teaching them new skills is just a brilliant way to spend time and make a living. Nicky, Daycare Provider and dog boarder
The most enjoyable thing about running a dog daycare is looking after other peoples fantastic dogs and watching them run around in a play group environment filled with games and activities.
I enjoy providing a routine of training and interaction. I like to see how they become enriched by a positive social experience and I get to see the puppies develop before my eyes. I love observing the dogs social cues and seeing the dogs communicate – it has really has broadened my understanding of dog language too.
It’s great seeing them exercising their minds as well as physically. I relish hearing from the owners how their pooches have returned home nice and tired knowing they have had a great time with their friends. For some owners it’s like we’re providing a pre-school environment. They are out of the owner’s hair and happily occupied getting lots of socialisation. Plus my dog gets to make lots of friends so it’s a win-win! Kelly, daycare provider and dog boarder
As well as this, you get to work from home and have a lovely team of people to work with and lots of support.
Happy Hounds & Cooler Cats can help you with the licence you’ll need from the local authority and provide all the advice, training & support you need and hold your hand through each step of the process.
You may have a dog yourself and this would be a great way for them to socialise with other dogs, or this may be the perfect way for you to enjoy the company of dogs during the day without the full time commitment of owning one.
If this sparks your curiosity, then do get in touch and we can have a nice chat and you can see if it’s something you might enjoy.
