There is a huge divide between those who use nyc dog walkers and those who drop their dogs off at an nyc daycare facility. I’ve listed some of the pros and cons I see between the two of them below.

in home nyc dog care:
* pros: your dog gets to stay in it’s own environment and maintain it’s normal diet, walking routine, etc..
* cons: depending on the service you get, sometimes dogs are not tired out

nyc doggy daycare / boarding:
* pros: dog’s get mentally exhausted
* cons: lost of dogs get sick in kennel’s; lack of cardio activity

conclusion:
I’m obviously biased because I run an nyc dog walking company but I do believe that if you construct your dog walking visit according to your needs (cardio, play visit, socialization, etc) you can achieve the social benefits of daycare while getting a better cardio workout than daycare. For those who would like to send their dogs to daycare we recommend the wagging tail in tribeca.

  1. There are also people who will run with your dog now too! I don’t know anything that tires a dog out more than a trip to the dog run chasing a ball, or going for a run.

  2. i like a combination of both – I have my dog walked four days a week and one day a week I let my guy lose his mind in daycare / when there’s a sickness going around I’ll hold off on the daycare / i do like the host’s idea of playdates though

  3. Here is other side of the table.
    Daycare
    – All vaccines are checked
    – Your dog is supervised during the day
    – You don’t have to have strangers in your apartment
