Pet Care Businesses Compete in their Own Olympics
Is Your Dog Being Cared for By A Gold Medal Facility?
As stories about the horrible condition of dogs in Sochi hit the news, better care for dogs comes from members of The Dog Gurus, an online community dedicated to keeping dogs safe. Great pet care centers are vying to be the best at what they do by competing for medals in the first annual Dog Daycare Games.
Dogs can really benefit from playing off leash and dog daycare has become a popular haven for busy pet owners. But how do you pick the best facility and how do you know your dog is safe? Education of the employees as well as proper supervision and management of the dogs is critical. The Daycare Games will identify the “top dogs” at managing dogs in off-leash playgroups..
“Just like the Olympics individuals compete for medals except in this case medals are awarded to staff members and pet centers who excel in managing a group of dogs off-leash,” states Susan Briggs, co-founder of The Dog Gurus. We’re focused on the most important skills to dog safety and fun: getting dogs to sit, having dogs come, and teaching dogs to wait at the gate.”
Briggs, along with Robin Bennett, the other co-founder of The Dog Gurus, designed the Daycare Games to be a skills-based challenge that keeps dogs safe and happy and recognizes top dog daycare providers for their unique skills.
“We want to help everyone understand that a safe daycare is one that is managing the dogs without force or intimidation. These dogs love to play games and it’s amazing to see a staff member call one dog out of a group of 15,” explained Bennett.
The Dog Gurus, who have put together industry standards for operating safe daycare in their ebook, “The Four E’s of Excellence in Off-Leash Play”, detail the exact exercises that help daycares take better care of your pet and have provided them to their online membership at www.TheDogGurus.com.
Daycare 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.
Your best resource for off-leash dog play, www.TheDogGurus.com is dedicated to helping pet care facilities raise the bar of safety in off-leash play, teach owners how to know when their dog is happy, and help reduce the number of dog fatalities that occur every year in dog daycares and dog parks.
