There are a few different sentences we can all say to get the attention of our four legged friends. The reactions run the course of perky ears to begging, or running in circles.
“Who wants to go for a Walk?”
“Do you want to play ball?”
I know there are a few of you out there that have to spell S-A-L-T-Y-D-O-G so your dog doesn’t shoot through the roof, with the anticipation of going to daycare to play!
But, let’s talk about food. Think about your dog’s reaction to an invitation to eat?! Back flips right? And, if not a back flip, there is surely a happy dance!
Feeding time is so important for your dog. I know a ton of dogs that truly live for feeding time. Some dogs just aren’t as happy if they have missed a meal. Much like I can’t function until I have my daily dose of coffee, a missed meal can set the tone for the entire day.
If your house is anything like ours it can be rushed in the mornings. Please, if you do not have time to feed your pup before daycare, feel free to throw some kibble in a baggie or container and we will feed your friend their breakfast.
Feeding times for dogs can vary. How much and how often are the biggest questions we get. The answers and philosophies are all over the charts. According to Petfinder.com, most experts recommend feeding your dog twice a day — once in the morning and once in the evening — though puppies under five months of age should be fed three to four times a day, or as directed by your veterinarian.
Whichever routine you have your dog following, we are happy to help you out in keeping with their schedule. Ultimately, if it works for your dog, it works for us. We would rather have your dog stick with his or her schedule and be happily fed and pooped daily; than have a grumpy pants come the end of the day.
So keep in mind. We are here to make your dog’s daycare experience a fun one! And as for feeding, all it takes is a little pre planning. Simply, write your dog’s name and a time for feeding on a baggie and we will see to it that they are fed.
