Doggy daycare is more than a play date!
In addition to the convenience and peace of mind for you.... doggy daycare comes with some pretty amazing benefits for your dog too. Here are just a few things your dog can get from doggy daycare at Central Pet.
Reduce separation anxiety and anxiety-related behaviors.
Reduce destructive behaviors, such as chewing or soiling the home.
Boost basic command skills as our staff work with your dog.
Build confidence with other dogs and humans.
Reduce social fears and build self-confidence.
Routine exercise to keep your dog healthy, fit, and more relaxed at home.
Here’s How to Get Started with Doggy Daycare
All of our daycare dogs start out with a "temperament test" before becoming a regular at one of our Tucson locations. Participation in daycare is contingent on passing a temperament test. There is a one-time charge of $32 for a temperament test evaluation.
What is a Temperament Test and Why is it Required for Dog Daycare?
The temperament test is a great way to see if your furball is ready for the daycare environment. At Central Pet, our doggy guests' safety is a top priority. While we love and accept all breeds and personalities, not every dog is comfortable with an off-leash, open-play environment.
During a temperament test, our trained team member will spend 20-30 minutes with your pup while you watch from one of our cameras. During this time we'll observe your pup to see how he or she interacts with the others in a smaller, controlled mini play area.
At the end of the session, we'll come back to chat with you about how your dog seemed to respond to the other dogs and make a recommendation for daycare. There are options for Solo play that might be recommended for pups that are a little anti-social. The process is easy and makes sure all dogs are comfortable at Central Pet.
Peace of Mind for Pet Parents
We provide a clean, safe, and structured setting that allows your dog to run and play while maintaining basic commands and working on their social skills. They also get a ton of physical and mental stimulation, which makes for a healthier, happier pup. Our staff takes pride in what we do and want you to rest easy knowing that your pet is well cared for when you drop them off with us.
Check-in on Your Pup, Anytime!
For even more peace of mind, we have cameras installed throughout the daycare areas. This allows you to peek in on your pup throughout the day while they are at daycare.
Expect Happy Dog Days at Doggy Daycare
Dogs who attend doggy daycare on a regular basis are just happier. They get to spend more time running around, playing with their furry friends and getting to burn off some of their natural energy. The physical and mental stimulation of being in a pack is something that all dogs inherently crave. They look forward to seeing their pack-mates, playing the games, getting the extra rush of dopamine, and coming home a happy, tired pup.
Who wouldn't love that?
What Does Doggy Daycare Cost?
Doggy daycare sessions are setup using passes. You can choose a few days a month all the way up to an unlimited plan. With passes there's no need for an advance reservation. Plus you can save on retail, grooming and boarding services.
In addition to our standard doggy daycare, we offer add-on services to cater to the individual needs of our guests. While you're busy at work or running errands and your dog is at daycare, send them to get groomed or get them some extra play or cuddle time with our staff. There are several add-ons that can make your special friend's day even better.
Ask About Our Events & Paw-ties!
While our doggy daycare program is already packed with fun and frolic for your four-legged friends, we regularly host special events and parties with a variety of activities and gourmet dog treats. From Football Fever and '50s Sock Hops to holiday-themed parties and birthday celebrations, you'll want to sign-up your pup so they don't miss out on any of the festivities! If you know your pet's birthday, or "adopt-iversary", let us know and we'll be sure to spoil them with a special treat and a fun game that's all about them. The best part is that all activities include a take-home gift for you; whether it's a new toy, a themed photograph, a goody basket, or your pup's arts & crafts project.
