Dog Daycare Games

Fun Competition that Highlights Skills Used to Keep Dogs Safe

Prior Lake, MN, USA – While winter keeps many dogs inside for exercise, Paws & Pals Pet Resort, will compete for medals in the second annual Daycare Games.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to control a large group of dogs off-leash?  Most people imagine mayhem and chaos when you put a group of unknown dogs together. Professional pet care businesses, like Paws & Pals Pet Resort, are out to bust that myth. It’s true that dogs can fight and bite, but it’s also true that certain skills used by excellent daycare facilities will keep dogs safe while they play together.  The Daycare Games are focused on proving who is the best at providing these skills to the dogs in their care.

“We’re hoping to take home the Gold, just like in the Olympics.” states, Konrad Gastony, owner of locally owned, Paws & Pals. “By focusing on the most important skills: getting dogs to sit, having dogs come, and teaching dogs to wait at the gate, we provide a controlled environment where dogs get exercise without stress or injury. And this is accomplished without fear or intimidation!” states Gastony.

Robin Bennett, and Susan Briggs, the co-founders of The Dog Gurus designed the Daycare Games to be a skills-based challenge that keeps dogs safe and happy and recognizes top dog daycare providers for their unique skills.

“The dogs love to play these games and we wanted to recognize the handlers and facilities taking the best care of their pets by having a friendly competition,” explained Briggs.

The Dog Gurus, who have put together industry standards for operating safe daycare in their ebook “The Four E’s of Excellence in Off-Leash Play” detail the exact exercises that help daycares take better care of your pet and have provided them to their online membership at www.SafeOffLeashDogPlay.com. That is where you can learn more about The Daycare Games and monitor the weekly competition.

Daycare has become a growing industry over the past 10 years, but there are still many dog owners who don’t understand how to choose the best facility. Everyone needs to understand the education and training necessary to keep dogs safe.

Paws & Pals (www.pawsresort.com) is dedicated to raising the bar of safety in off-leash play, teaching owners how to know when their dog is happy, and helping to reduce the number of dog fatalities that occur every year in dog daycares and dog parks.
