Will My Dog Be Good at Daycare?

It depends on your dog! Some dogs may take to daycare right away, while others may take some time to become comfortable with it. Daycare is a great way for dogs to socialize and build positive relationships with other canines, as long as the daycare provides plenty of quality attention and supervision. You can also talk to other pet owners who have experienced their pup’s transition into daycare – they will be able to provide valuable insight on what worked for them and what didn't. Be prepared that even if the facility has plenty of positive reviews, your pup may still need some time getting used to it before really settling in.


Whether you're traveling for work or pleasure, rest easy knowing your furry best friend is safe and happy at our doggie daycare and boarding facility in Fanwood. Contact us online or call (908) 386-4418 to book a stay!

Dog Daycare for Large DogsHow to Choose a Good Dog Daycare 

When searching for a good doggy daycare, safety should be one of your main concerns. It’s important to make sure that the facility has adequate safety protocols in place, including background checks on all staff and secure cages to prevent escape attempts. The environment should also be free of any potential hazards. Additionally, the dog daycare should have enough space for each pup to move around and get exercise, as well as a favorable staff-to-dog ratio to ensure adequate individual attention is given.  


Other activities and services provided by the facility should also be considered when making your decision. Does the facility offer supervised playtime or additional activities like agility courses? These are all factors you should take into account before choosing a doggy daycare for your pup.


Finally, cleanliness is just as important as any other factor when considering a dog daycare. Make sure that kennels, food dishes and toys are being cleaned regularly to avoid the spread of germs or illness. For outdoor areas, check that they’re free from debris or waste so your pup can enjoy their playtime without risk of harm.


By doing your due diligence when selecting a doggy daycare, you can ensure that your pup will receive quality care and attention while you’re away from home. With proper research and consideration of all aspects involved in choosing a dog daycare, you can provide your furry friend with a safe and enriching experience!​​

Frequently Asked Questions

Need help? Here are the top questions asked by our clients

  • Is dog daycare good for dogs?

    Yes! Doggy daycare is good for most dogs.

    Bringing your dog to daycare has its benefits, including those that improve your dog’s quality of life:

    • Plenty of mental stimulation and physical activity: Not only does this tire your pup out, but it can also reduce unwanted behaviors like constant barking.

    • An outlet to expend excess energy, exercise, and remain active: Your dog will be able to participate in daily exercise through group activities. Participants play in a cage-free environment while enjoying the freedom to stretch their legs.

    • Eases separation anxiety: By giving your pup time away from you in a safe, fun, and stimulating environment, dog daycare gives your pup great practice for alone time. Our staff will give your dog the attention and care they need to help make their stay as low-stress as possible.

    • The chance to socialize with other dogs of a similar size and temperament: Dogs are social animals, and they benefit from spending time with other dogs! Each dog is evaluated to ensure appropriate and comfortable play with the other dogs, and maintain a completely safe and healthy environment. If your dog doesn’t do well with other dogs, they can still benefit from a dog daycare—group play will be replaced with one-on-one playtime with our staff.

    Keep in mind, however, that if your dog is reactive (common among dogs who were rescued from abusive owners), dog daycare may not be the best idea. Please let us know if your dog struggles with aggression, and we can discuss whether behavioral training is recommended before checking in.

  • How often should my dog go to dog daycare?
    Daycare is recommended as often as possible! Dogs are highly adaptable and enjoy a routine that is predictable. Most commonly dogs will come between 2-4 times per week, but we very often see dogs upwards of 5 times a week! The exercise is wonderful to keep them entertained and socialized, and they will make “friends” they can consistently see and interact with at daycare. We love to see your dogs as often as we can and establish our own relationships with them, in turn making them much more comfortable while in our care.
  • What is a dog daycare evaluation?
    If your dog will be participating in Doggie Daycare while at K9 Resorts, in order to provide the most safe and enjoyable environment possible, our trained and certified staff evaluates every dog on their first day. During the evaluation process, we are assessing the temperament of your dog and their compatibility with a group of dogs.
  • How do I know if my dog likes dog daycare?
    Dogs are social animals that need exercise and stimulation, and doggie daycare is the best way to provide both! Dogs that are approved for doggie daycare will come home happy, tired, and ready to come back! Most dogs do require an adjustment period from what they are accustomed to, but typically after your 2nd or 3rd visit, your dog will pull you to the door, tail wagging, and will be excited to see the staff and play with their friends. Some owners have even told us they cannot use their “daycare trigger word” in the house unless they intend to bring their dog that day, or else they get so disappointed when mom and dad don’t end up bringing them to daycare. Don’t get offended if they don’t say goodbye, we promise they’re just appreciative you’ve found a fun place for them to be, and will be thrilled to see you later in the day!
  • Do you separate dogs by size in dog daycare?
    Yes, dogs that are 30 pounds and over are evaluated for our large playgroup. Dogs that are 29 pounds and under are evaluated for our small daycare playgroup.
