Are two dogs better than one?
Today we wanted to share the first in a series of blog posts that we hope you'll find helpful and informative.
Many people believe that two dogs are better than one, and getting one dog is cruel as they are a pack animal. This is a myth. Dogs do not require one another to live and they can live a long, full and happy life with just a human. Although having more than one dog in a household is quite common, it is not as easy as it seems.
A lot of time and training goes in to keeping two dogs. Twice the dog equals twice the food, twice the mess and twice the veterinary bills. When adopting a dog YOU become its pack - and if you are not familiar with dogs, then it is recommended to only get the one. Most households find a single dog challenging enough in relation to the added responsibility of training and general attention animals need.
Many people believe that owning a dog is easy, but go on to discover this is not the case. Dogs are like children - they require dedication and attention. Each breed has varying needs, so if you have never owned a dog before, it is best to start off with a low maintenance breed.
The experience of owning a dog should be both fun and rewarding, not a burden, so when considering adding a new member to your family, think carefully before adding the additional responsibility of taking in more than one at a time.
DOGGY DAY CARE CENTRE GETS BETTER AND BETTER!
YOUR PET WILL HAVE SO MUCH FUN AT BRISBANE'S BEST DOGGY DAY CARE CENTRE
We provide a fun, safe, hygienic and temperature controlled environment for your pet to play in. For starters we offer toys galore, walks, ball games, tunnels, agility equipment and cubby houses. Add in doggy movies, cuddles and brushing and top it off with soothing scents from our humidifier while enjoying an afternoon snooze on one of the comfy flea free beds!
While your pet is having fun with us, you can be assured that their play environment is clean and well supervised. We keep our day care area separate from our hydrobathing/ grooming area to ensure the safety and attention we believe your pet deserves. Our day care centre has veterinary grade flooring (no concrete floors) that is hygienic and easy going on joints and is disinfected regularly throughout the day. Your pet will enjoy air-conditioning, which is so important during the hot summer days and cold winters especially if they suffer from skin allergies, hot spots or joint problems.
Day care is great for for dogs of all sizes and personalties from those that require lots of excercise and stimulation to those that are a bit more anxious and just want a bit of company. Whether it's because of a busy life style or just for fun, you can expect your pet to return home exhausted from play but thoroughly satisfied. Watch as your pet makes friends for life, learns good socialisation and behavioral skills. Watch as your pet becomes a valued member of The Pet Pad family, because we understand that they are a valuable member of your family!
