What is a typical day at DogS Gone Good’s Dog Boarding School?
The day begins about 7:00 a.m. The exact time depends on the dog’s need to pee. After the first morning pee, every one has breakfast. About eight o’clock, dogs have morning play time. Depending on the individual dog, and the weather, the dogs play outside with other friendly dogs for thirty minutes to an hour. After all dogs have play time, training begins. Each dog is given the opportunity to eliminate prior to a training session. For young dogs, they are given a chance to urinate after each training session, as well as before. We rotate through all the dogs, and then do it again, and again, and again! Dinner is served about 5:30 p.m. After dinner, each dog recieves another playtime outside with his friends. Everyone gets one last chance to go to the bathroom between ten and eleven p.m.
