Have you ever wondered what a typical day at dog daycare is like? Me too! So I thought it was high time Love Tails had a chat to 'The Hound Lounge' co-owners Lisa and Maddie to take us on that journey in today's blog.
A day at Hound Lounge dog is never anything short of fun!
I get dropped off nice and early, which is just as well… that means more hours in the day to have fun with my friends! It’s always so hard to wait as the staff takes off my leash and harness and puts it away in my special drawer, but if I'm nice and patient that part doesn’t take too long. Then it’s time to burst through the door into the main daycare area, that’s where the party really happens!
Once we get into our group for the day, big dogs on one side and small dogs on the other, it’s time to greet everyone! Mornings are an important time of the day, that’s where we sniff and say hello to all the other dogs, and most importantly decide who will be our best friend for the day.
If we're really lucky, some new dogs will even join us for some daycare fun!
The staff are always close by them to help them settle in with nice greetings and asking us to join in with our games.
After all of that, it’s time to get down to some serious play! The staff put on the music and it gets us all in the mood for a party! We run and wrestle and even climb on the awesome play equipment. The houses are particularly fun, and the perfect place to hide for an ambush!
After such a busy morning, it's time for a nap, The Hound Lounge always has so many comfy beds and couches, we all find our places and snuggle up with our favourite friends, Hound Lounge staff sit down with us and give out lots of pats and ear rubs as we drift off to dreamland.
When we wake up, we have a busy afternoon that is just as jam packed as our morning! Lots more play to be had… even if we are still a little tired from a morning of fun, we have to make the most of our time here!
As the afternoon turns into the evening, home times begin, and our humans start to pull into the car park to collect us. We get very excited when we hear the doorbell because we can’t wait to rush out and greet our mums and dads and tell them all about our day! All that excitement makes this the perfect time to practice our manners at the gate, the staff help us to wait patiently and come out only when it is our turn… it’s really tricky but I love practicing this and exercising my brain after a long day of exercising my body.
Before I know it, I'm taken home in the hound-mobile or my human arrives and it’s off home for dinner and a biiiiig sleep. As I drift off to sleep in my bed, I dream about the next time I will be dropped off at The Hound Lounge to play with my friends whilst our pawrents are at work, we really are the luckiest dogs around.
