Many pet owners wonder if a doggie day camp or traditional boarding is better for their beloved family dog. From our professional viewpoint, it all depends on your dog. Some dogs do very well interacting with other dogs, while others are a bit more timid or just do better on their own. If the latter situation is the case with your dog, we would like to welcome you to our facilities at Anasazi Animal Clinic. We have an experienced team who will take care of your dog while your take care of running errands, attending a meeting, going to the doctor, etc. .

Whether it’s a couple hours, a half day or a full day, our version of doggie day camp includes playing with our staff so that missing mom and dad isn’t quite so stressful. Our facility offers all the comforts of home including key things your pet needs for general health. Like fresh, clean water.

Especially here in the desert, water is a critical part of taking care of your dog. As a rule of thumb, dogs should drink one ounce of water per pound of body weight each day. But this doesn’t mean he will drink that amount or more or less. There are a lot of factors that determine how much your dog drinks including outdoor temperature, his overall health, and how active he is.

While it is more critical during our hot summer months, water is necessary for your dog’s overall health year-round. Always keep a fresh, full bowl of water available for your pets no matter what time of year it is. If your pet stops drinking or isn’t drinking the amount that should match their activity level, contact us as soon as possible to make sure there isn’t a larger issue.

So if you are in need of a non-traditional doggie day camp that provides fun, safety and comfort, give us a look. Depending upon your dog’s personality and comfort level, it might be just the thing. And if you have any questions about your pet’s health including the amount of water he needs, contact our caring and knowledgeable team today.
