The Benefits of Daycare vs. Dog Walking

With millions of services performed we have found that for most dogs day care is far superior to dog walking.

Dog owners want their dogs to be healthy, happy, adjusted, and well-mannered. NYC can be a very challenging place for a dog to live. Most NYC dog owners have a dog walker for their dog; a dog walk provides little of value beyond giving a dog a chance to relieve itself outside. With over 30 years of experience providing almost seven million services to dogs, Biscuits & Bath has found that day care is a much better experience for many dogs. Come in to one of our locations to experience the many ways that your dog can benefit from day care – all for a great value. Check out our breakdown between daycare vs. dog walking:
