Exercise, socialization, play and positive conditioning are all important things that enrich dogs' lives.
At Your Dog's Best FriendsSM we believe that while your best friend is in our care, getting lots of exercise, socialization and romping fun, that our staff can do more than just watch over him or her. We believe that we can help you develop your dog's behavioral potential and help you raise a dog that is healthier, happier and more fun to live with.
We call our approach to cageless daycare, Positive PlaycareSM. Positive PlaycareSM is the fusion of the science of positive conditioning with the service of dog daycare. It is also our commitment to you and your dog to earn and maintain a relationship based on positive interactions.
We believe that a dog's time in our daycare gives Your Dog's Best FriendsSM a unique opportunity to create a positive bond with your dog. Our constant positive interactions with the dogs builds trust and affection which leads to respect and control. We feel that creating such a positive bond helps us set each dog up for success in our daycare and in their interactions with other dogs and people in their life in general. This bond also enables us to let them play more energetically while still maintaining the control we need to keep them safe.
Throughout the day our pet sitters use opportunities that present themselves -or that we structure-- to guide the dogs' play behaviors, socializing and positive character development.
This approach has been designed by leading professionals in the dog daycare industry and trainers who are devoted to the Positive Reinforcement Training method.
The benefit to you is a dog who is happier, healthier and more fun to live with.
