Like humans, dogs are social beings and benefit from positive interactions with other dogs. Dogs learn social skills as well as receive exercise and enjoyment throughout the day. The stimulation your dog receives at daycare allows for a more positive home life!

PLAY SAFE COLLARS AT BFFE
All our guest are required to wear Breakaway collars, which are specially designed to release in case a dog accidently were to become stuck on someone or something. The most common scenario would be a dog accidently getting its tooth or paw stuck on a playmate’s collars. In this sort of situation, the collars will breakaway reducing the risk of injury. Because of this feature, we do not recommend using a leash with a breakaway collar. Please walk your dog into daycare on an appropriate leash and collar.
