The thing I really like about doggy daycare is that the beast gets to be off leash for about two hours, running and romping across a couple acres with his canine buds. With his dog walker, he had to stay on a leash the entire time. Otherwise, he'd take off and never be seen again. It's a little pricier than the dog walking service, but I really think he'll enjoy the socialisation.
I love the company's video. Room to roam, kiddie pools in summer, a place to warm up in winter. And the best part - pick up and drop off service from our house. You give them a key so they whisk him away between 9:30-10:30 and return him from 12:30-1:30. I'm free to run errands, attend meetings, etc. and don't have to worry about sticking around for the doggy van. Sounds like a win-win to me!
