Dog Day Care (my thoughts)

Do you have a dog and are thinking about sending them to day care? Do you work all day and leave your dog at home wondering if they get lonely. Well I’m going to tell you what I think of Dog or Doggie Day Care.

My thoughts on Dog Day Care is this, I think it is awesome. It’s the best thing I could’ve done for my dog. I have a 8 year old Golden Retriever, named Abigail,who is a very timid dog. So I didn’t think she would do well at Day Care. But I decided to give it a try. The place I take my dog said she had to pass the evaluation before she could start going to day care. The evaluation is a couple of hours spent at the day care without the owner around so they can see how your dog is around other dogs without you there. Guess what? Abigail passed her evaluation! I was really nervous that she wouldn’t just because she does get anxious around other dogs. But the owners of the day care said she did great and that she passed.

I started noticing a difference in Abigail in just a couple of weeks of taking her there. I started out taking her only half a day and I noticed a big difference when we have her around other dogs. Even one of the girls who works at the day care noticed that she was getting more comfortable walking in. I felt like a proud mom when she said that. After a couple of weeks of going to day care we decided to take her to the dog park. Abigail was great with the other dogs at the park. She even ran around playing with one of the dogs there. I truly feel like taking her to day care has helped her so much with her anxiety and that it will continue to help.

So my review on dog day care is that I highly suggest every dog owner to take their dog to one. Especially if you work all day, your best friend doesn’t have to wait at home all day for you. They can go have a play date with their new dog friends at the day care. It will also make you feel better knowing that your dog is with their friends and with great people taking care of them. I think if you have a puppy that it’s awesome if you decide to take them to day care, when they are ready to interact with other dogs of course. That way they get socialized when they are little and are used to being around other dogs.IMG_6888DSC_1311

Spring

Spring is amazing. Spring is so beautiful. Everything in nature comes to life during spring. Spring has the perfect weather. I feel the most inspired during Spring. I love to take photos of the flowers blooming and of the rivers when they are full. Spring is full of inspiration. Just look around you, everything is coming to life and has color. IMG_4107

I love taking my dog for walks in the Spring, she loves it too. Where I live we have a beautiful park that the river runs through. My dog just loves to stop in the shade and look at the water. I do too, rivers are just so peaceful. I know she wishes she could go in but sadly the current there is too strong. But don’t worry we have a little pool we fill up at home and she goes in as soon as we get home.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy summer too. But I am not a hot weather type of person. I enjoy going to the beach. But I can’t just lay in the sand all day trying to get a tan. Which I never get a tan because I am very fair. I’d much rather go on a hike or a nature walk with my fur baby. But it gets way to hot during the summer to go. That’s why I enjoy Spring so much more. The weather is perfect during Spring, usually 70 to 80 degrees. It’s cool enough to enjoy the outdoors and everything is beautiful during the Spring. There is so much color during Spring time, whereas in the summer the heat just drains all of the beautiful colors out of nature.

But I would love to know what your favorite season is. Why is it your favorite season? Do you have any favorite memories from that season?
