MericoX, what is the daily rate for doggy day care? How many other dogs do they have? Do you have a website of the place?
Here in Singapore, they don't have such a thing, though I have a hired helper who comes in daily to take Winnie down for her lunch time walk and to keep her company for a couple of hours.
I know kennelling is a bit different, but here, that starts at USD10 a day for an outside kennel, USD12 a day if it's air-conditioned or in someone's house (eg a trainer). When my DB and I travel, our hired help stays over to look after Winnie. Does a darn good job too, except Winnie gets so chubby because the help can't resist Winnie's big brown begging eyes!
It's $17 US for the day. The earlies dropoff time is 7:15AM and you have to pick them up before 6:15PM or else you have to pay extra. And they can stay there the whole day. The only dumb thing about it is if she was just going to be there for a couple of hours it would still be $17. So she's going to stay there until 6 when I pick her up for her Intermediate Class (that are next door.. how convienent).
I think there's roughly about 20-30 dogs there a day... not really sure. They get a nap time and snack time. Depending on age they'll get more or less naps, and at snack time they can either get their afternoon meal or treats (I brought both).
Thanks that was really interesting to learn! Most people with dogs here have live in maids who also look after their kids while they are at work. But I think doggy day care is a great concept and a good option for those who need it.
I dont know if it's all at once, but I bet each individual dog gets a nap time.
She was so tired when I got there to pick her up. They said she had a good time and played with all the other doggies. And at the end she was kinda sitting off to the side cuz she was tired and was giving the other dogs looks when they came to sniff her.
