What is dog day care exactly?? I've heard of dog walkers and I get why some people might need to use those, but do some people's dogs really need to go to a day care?

We're pretty lucky with our dog to be fair, she seems more like a cat than anything some of the time - go out for the day and she pretty much just finds a nice spot to go for a nice long snooze! :D

Usually one of us is at home, and usually he's off sleeping and wouldn't give a gooseberry fool anyway, but if we're both out all day we drop him in there. He gets to socialise with other dogs and play all day. Apparently he doesn't stop playing for 8 hours and will often go around trying to wake other dogs up to.play with him. Basically it's like taking him on an 8 hour walk exercise wise.

We do it so he can be aroind other dogs more than anything. It's £15 for the whole day and you'd be looking at £20 for some scrote to take your dog out for a small walk.

Sounds like a pretty solid deal to me, whatever keeps the pooch happy!

We do use a dog walker some times but ours is pretty reliable - they make sure the dogs get a real good walk. I've been at home when the dog has been picked up on some days and then she still isn't back when my wife has got home several hours later.

Oh and to keep the picture stream up, here is our dog Ada:

And here she is doing her favourite thing, sleeping: :lol:

We send Zazu to daycare 3 or 4 times a week. Absolutely great stuff, they pick her up and drop her off, and she's always completely wrecked in the evening. It does however cost £35 a pop :dread:

When you say "Daycare" do you mean "locker at the station"

That's what puts me off having a dog. Both of us work all day. Doesn't seem right to leave them alone :(

When I say daycare I mean a nursery.

It costs us £47 a day. Some places charge more but I think the most expensive we looked at was £55.

He’s in there from around 9 to 5.30 so you are right, it’s between £5-£10 an hour. ;)

The one we use does home boarding too. It's £25 a night and that includes the full day at the day care too (the owner does it). So they take him in, he has a full day playing there and then gets taken to the house with a few other dogs. We tried him there for 3 nights so that and 4 days of day care and I think it came to £75 all in. He was absolutely strawberry floated for the week after :lol:

You see now my confusion about the conditions you were leaving your spawn in.

If you did that you'd never hear the end of it. As an alternative I suggest locking yourself in and waiting for the sweet peace and quiet of death.

Jinx had to go to the movers yesterday and have a tooth removed. Now Rupert our other cat just hisses at him making him sad they were awesome buddies, he keeps going over to play and just gets hissed at and growled at.
