The salon isn’t the only place at AnnaBelle’s where the pups are pampered. A unique element to the day care schedule is the pack walk. Pack animals by instinct, dogs need meaningful social encounters as well as companionship: a leashed dog walk ensures a safe and fun environment for the dogs to get these much needed encounters.
All dogs that attend day care at Annabelle’s are walked around the cool city that we live in. The day care staff fit the pooches in an Easy Walk harnesses and the staff wear a Buddy System, which is a hands free leash system. Walks take place mid-morning and mid-afternoon, always taking into consideration the weather conditions and the overall surroundings for the day.
Exercise has calming and mood-stabilizing effects; both humans and dogs benefit psychologically and physically. Continued social interaction with other animals and people promotes a dog’s well-being.
