What's different about RK Pet Ranch?
It is easy to find the general services provided at RK Pet Ranch at almost any dog care facility. What's different at RK Pet Ranch is the "how and why". Our services are based on: in-depth knowledge of how dogs process information and their instincts.
Can dogs play all day?
Free-roam and "cage free" daycares are currently popular. An all-day free for all, especially if it is overcrowded, is a great way to over stimulate and even frustrate a dog. Consistent or even short-term overstimulation can lead to a variety of anxiety and behavioral problems even aggression. The number one measure of a good doggie daycare is almost always how tired a dog is at the end of the day, which is definitely a good measure to consider. However also considering the source of the dog's fatigue is important. Being anxious and uncomfortable all day is exhausting and can be even more so than proper stimulation and play.
The ability to socialize with as many dogs as possible and maximum freedom to move around throughout the day may seem more attractive to us as humans. Research shows a moderate amount of group play with two to five dogs several times a day along with plenty of rest in a cozy private suite is not only much safer but also more comfortable. Supplementing the group play sessions with long walks and individual one-on-one human attention, creates a perfect balanced day for your pet and leaves them feeling appropriately tired, satisfied and happy at the end of the day.
