At Just Dogs, canine behavior & development is our passion! We understand that appropriate socialization at various stages of a dog’s life is important. Interactions that are safe, supervised, & on neutral territory can be a key to better behavior & improved well-being.
A general play day at JDPC includes 3-hour sessions in the morning and afternoon—in climate-controlled playrooms & outside fenced yards, like Rocco & Sweet Pea’s Grassland. In between play sessions is nap time, complete with a cold peanut butter Kong® (or other parent-approved treat)! All dogs have a kennel assigned to them, which is their “home base” for nap time or breaks.
Many dogs love having a chance to socialize, from active players to wallflowers! While dog daycare is not right for every dog,* for many it is a welcome alternative to staying in the house, kennel, or yard all day!
*Doggie daycare is not for dogs who are aggressive or fearful of new dogs and/or humans, have health issues or physical limitations, or are advanced in age.
Truth is, a daycare setting isn’t right for every dog. But for many, it’s a welcome alternative to being cooped up in the house, back yard, or kennel all day.
Here are just a few of the BENEFITS:
During doggie daycare, we:
Dogs are creatures of habit; they like familiar, friendly faces—dog or human. That’s why your dog will be supervised at all times by the same qualified Dog Handlers who are dedicated to giving your best friend a terrific experience—whether for one visit or many.
JDPC Dog Handlers go through several weeks of intensive training to learn about animal behavior and dog communication. They are taught to constantly walk around & observe and interact with dogs, with a focus on keeping play nice and safe. Our Dog Handlers also adhere to strict standards with daily sanitizing, ensuring a healthy place for your dog to stay. JDPC employees are also involved in ongoing pet first aid training.
While we love and understand dogs, we are not veterinarians.* Our passion lies in canine behavior and development. Just Dogs PlayCare focuses on health maintenance and disease prevention by keeping dogs active. Our goals are to play with and train dogs; teach pack socialization; address regular health concerns; understand dogs’ minds, hearts, and behaviors; and give them love, work, and purpose.
* If an injury or illness would occur while your dog is at JDPC, we would typically use your own vet (if in Iowa City, Coralville, or North Liberty). Our emergency on-call veterinarian is Coralville Animal Clinic. After hours, we use Bright Eyes & Bushy Tails Emergency Clinic. Feel free to ask more about this during your pet’s intake meeting.
