Is there anything quite as rewarding as adopting a rescue dog? Getting the satisfaction of knowing you’re saving their life, seeing their health improve and seeing them look at you with utter adoration – it’s no wonder we see many pet parents adopting from local rescues. In fact, dog adoption is so popular that there’s even a top 10 list of animal shelters to adopt from in Commerce Township on Yelp. But wait – we’re making life even sweeter for pet parents of adopted dogs by offering a FREE day of doggy daycare!
Our dog day care facility in Commerce features all the great amenities and services we’ve showcased at our Bloomfield & Utica Dogtopia locations. Our Dogtopia of Commerce location is conveniently located where the old Hiller’s Market was, and is a short drive for people living in neighboring cities like Wixom, Milford, & Walled Lake. If you’re too excited to wait, we invite you to take a tour of our Dogtopia of Bloomfield facility to get a feel for how we work and what you can expect at our newest location.
Rescue dogs, much like all dogs, benefit from frequent and consistent socialization. Our dog socialization services are our open-play doggy daycare, which allows your pup to make new friends and learn important doggy etiquette, all while playing with dogs of the same size and temperament. In the open-play dog day care environment, dogs are allowed to romp around with each other under the careful supervision of our dedicated Dogtopia team, ensuring that when dogs need a break or begin to play too hard someone steps in to prevent escalation. Best of all, at Dogtopia you can watch everything unfold on our webcams- we even have an app to allow you to easily login from your smartphone to see what’s happening at your preferred Dogtopia location.
Pet parents of rescue dogs LOVE being able to trust their pup to Dogtopia for day care since it provides an outlet for their furry friend to exercise physically and mentally while they are away at work. Some of the most cited reasons people give for giving up their dog to an animal shelter include:
1.) Lack of training (which usually means the dog has exhibited destructive behaviors – something they can’t do while they’re at Dogtopia!)
2.) Lifestyle changes (usually meaning there’s a stressor on the family that makes having a dog inconvenient due to the time involved)
3.) Not enough time for the pet (which is often related to a combination of the top 2 reasons, stress + bad behavior due to lack of time with the dog)
By committing to bringing your rescue dog to doggy daycare, you’ll avoid irritating misbehavior at home (particularly problematic when the dog is left alone and uncrated at home) and be able to enjoy your dog after work. Dogs who have participated in open-play dog daycare are happy, relaxed dogs, which makes them a joy to be around at home after work.
If you have a rescue dog, we encourage you to contact us through our online form so you can be one of the first to experience a FREE day of dog day care at our new Commerce location!
