“I like to make the dogs’ days really enjoyable; it’s all about interacting with them,” vet nurse Lily Smith said.
“They’re here for the day while their owners are at work, so we’re trying to enrich them and make them happy.”
Furry Beach Bums has a variety of spaces where dogs can socialise together as well as be alone.
“A lot of dogs get really wound up, so it’s nice to have a bit of downtime for them, and having the different zones actually allow them to have their own individual time as well,” Ms Smith said.
“During the day, they get a little break, and they have an opportunity to take a nap.
“We give them a bit of food, a bit of enrichment, and that gives them their independence as well; so they are not constantly around other dogs, that’s not really their natural environment.”
She said dogs without strong social skills often improved considerably at Furry Beach Bums.
“We might have dogs who are terrified of coming in when they first come to the day care, and then after a few sessions, they’re literally running through the door; they’re so excited to be here.
“Owners are also noticing their animal gets home and they’re exhausted, but in a good way; they’ve had a great time.”
The business’s approach to monitoring and managing your dog is supported by the latest research in dog behaviour, with all interactions with your dog undertaken with the utmost respect, care and compassion.
