Competing for medals in the annual Dog Daycare Games
It’s nearly time. Our day care teachers are polishing up their leadership skills and our dogs are ready to Sit, Stay and Come, for the Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals in the annual International doggy ‘Daycare Games” being held in late February. Last year our team picked up eleven gold, two silver and one bronze medal.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to control a large group of dogs off-leash? Most people imagine mayhem and chaos when you put a group of unknown dogs together. Professional pet care businesses, like Paws & Relax, are out to bust that myth. It’s true that dogs can fight and bite, but it’s also true that certain skills used by excellent day care facilities will keep dogs safe while they play together. By focusing on the most important skills like teaching dogs to wait at the gate, we provide a controlled environment where dogs get exercise without stress or injury.
Robin Bennett, and Susan Briggs, the American co-founders of The Dog Gurus designed the ‘Daycare Games’ to be a skills-based challenge that keeps dogs safe and happy and recognises top dog day care providers for their unique skills.
Day care has become a growing industry over the past 10 years, but there are still many dog owners who don’t understand how to choose the best facility. Everyone needs to understand the education and training necessary to keep dogs safe.
Paws & Relax is dedicated to raising the bar of safety in off-leash play, teaching owners how to know when their dog is happy, and helping to reduce the number of dog injuries that occur every year.
