Dog Day Care

Dog Day Care

If you are busy during the day at work (as most of us are) and do not have anyone to take care of your dog at home, one of the best options that you have is to hire the services of a dog day care. A dog day care centre is a great place for your dog to socialise and make new friends. Also if he or she is not very good around other dogs, it will be a good experience and they will receive a shot of self confidence. Some dog day care centres also offer extra facilities such as grooming, spas, parties, training and accessories. There are a few things that you should check before finalising a day care for your dog. These include –

• What are the training or health qualifications of the staff?
• What are the vaccination requirements for my dog?
• How much is it? A daily or hourly rate? What if I’m late for pickup?
• How far in advance do you have to book?
• Does it have air conditioning or heating?
• Do they have multiple separate areas, for dogs with different temperaments, and to get them used to groups of different sizes?

Woofers World first began trading in 2005 although it had been brewing in the minds of the founders Jonathan & Penny Whitelaw for many years. They aimed to bring some of our experiences from overseas to Melbourne and fill the niche in the market for an affordable and truly service-orientated pet care business. Their original aim was to open an urban dog day care centre complete with overnight facility in, what they felt was a perfect location, the inner suburbs of southeast Melbourne.

They strive to provide consistent professional pet care in a safe, friendly and fun environment. Their goal is to adapt to the needs of dog owners to supply value based, convenient and complete pet care that enriches the lifestyle of urban dogs by providing exercise, socialisation and the opportunity to play freely.
