Professional Doggie Daycare, Our job is dogs play
Pittsburgh Dog Daycare
While you are hard at work, running errands, cleaning the house, or even getting ready for that big event in your life, try our outdoor doggie daycare. Doggie daycare is a fun day where you bring your dog to socialize, romp and run, splash in the wading pool, fetch and chew toys and balls with other social friendly dogs and our professional staff. Doggie Daycare offers dogs an opportunity to continually develop and instill great social skills, build confidence and tolerances, and gives your dog a wonderful outlet to exercise and interact. A well exercised and tired dog is a good dog.
Your dog can scamper and romp all day in a safe and friendly atmosphere at our professional facility. After a fun filled day at Doggie Daycare, your dog will be as exhausted as you are at the end of the day so you can relax and cuddle with them in the evening. It will alleviate the pressure and guilty feelings you have with the responsibilities of taking the time out for your dogs exercise.

What will my dog do during Daycare?
A full day of Dog Daycare includes exercise, socialization and playtime with other friendly dogs in our fenced in daycare yard. Since our daycare guests do mingle with others, we require proof of inoculation of DHLPP, Bordetella (Every 6 months) and Rabies. Daycare Training and/or Grooming can also be scheduled on days that your dog is at daycare. Please call for an appointment and fax vaccination records to the Misty Pines office at (412) 367-PETS (7387).
Daycare is available Monday through Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Benefits of Doggie Daycare
There are so many benefits your dog receives from Doggie Daycare. Dog Daycare can eliminate and alleviate destructive behavior problems and separation anxiety. It gets very active dogs and puppies out of the home, allowing them an outlet for excess energy until they mature and learn house manners. Puppies receive many additional benefits apart from great exercise. The best way a puppy can learn to inhibit its biting behavior is by rough-housing and play nipping with other dogs. The other puppies and dogs will let them know when they are exerting too much pressure on them. Once a dog has developed some degree of inhibition of the force of its bites, it will become much more tractable and its biting behavior towards humans will be easier to control. A dog that enjoys regular dog daycare is less likely to attack its owner or to develop other behavior problems.
Once a dog is well established in a regular dog daycare, owners will notice that their puppies and dogs develop favorite playmates and special friendships. Human friendships develop from dog daycare as well. Many of our clients make special arrangements in order for their dogs special friends to come and play on the same days.
A well socialized dog will readily interact and play with other dogs. Certainly, dogs have differences of opinions and have occasional spats amongst one another but these should only be minor episodes in their lives. Once they quickly resolve their differences, life resumes as usual. A dog that is well socialized rarely harbors animosity and would rather have fun sniffing and playing, than quarrel.
