What commonly causes injuries?
By far, the most common incidence of injury is when 2 dogs are having a great time playing and then one ‘crosses a line’, usually by accident. Other things that can lead to misunderstandings:
Poor social skills: the very reason many dogs are in daycare is to improve social skills. The other dogs do most of the teaching, but staff watches closely and intervenes as needed.
Overstimulation: like kids, dogs can get excited and forget their manners. Staff keeps excitement levels at a 5 out of 10 and removes dogs for a time out as needed.
Possessiveness: staff withholds the desired objects (human attention, toys).
