New Season Winter Wear
Although it’s a little way off, cuddly winter jumpers and jackets are arriving in-store this week at Dogcity!
Just like humans, recreation is an essential part of raising a well-rounded, healthy and happy dog! Aside from the obvious physical benefits, play is an essential way for dogs to exercise their mind, practise communication and release energy. At Dogcity we don’t accept unsuitable or aggressive animals so you can rest assured your dogs safety is our number one priority. Play in a secure area like Dogcity Daycare is off-leash, controlled and always supervised, ensuring both the enjoyment and safety of your dog.
Providing an outlet for play, exercise, stimulation and generally time to just be a dog means that life at home may become a whole lot easier. Barking, digging, chewing, destructive behaviour and other symptoms of boredom can be significantly reduced, and your dog will be happier just to rest quietly with the family after a happy day at daycare!
Your dogs safe interaction with people and other dogs is an expectation of the community and socialisation is an essential lesson for pets to integrate with our lifestyle. Being able to take your dog to a park, beach or café is one of the many joys of dog ownership and to do this in a calm and friendly manner is dependant on positive socialisation.
Dogcity Daycare provides a non-threatening and safe environment for your dog to explore and learn the boundaries of social behaviour, particularly for young dogs. A group of dogs will implement a social composition and communicate these to any newcomers. In the vast majority of cases, the new dog will acknowledge and adhere to the rules very quickly. We as humans cannot communicate these behavioural expectations to our dogs anywhere near as well as their peers do!
Dogs are naturally social creatures and crave the companionship of both humans and animals. Socially acclimatised dogs are more confident, communicate with other dogs better and adhere to social graces and the incidence of fights or aggression is far less likely in a well-socialised dog.
