What’s well-behaved and a pleasure to live with?
A tired dog, that’s what.
Our weekly Doggie Playtime session is not just fun for your dog—it comes with benefits for you, too. Fortunate side effects, so to speak. Because dogs that get vigorous exercise and learn better social skills are less likely to bark, jump up, pull on leash, and generally misbehave at home or around other people and dogs.
At For the Love of Dogs we have 3 play areas: A 30 x 30ft heated indoor space, a 50 x 100ft fenced outdoor space, and a 2-acre fenced outdoor enclosure.
Come rain, snow, or shine, we will be there for doggie fun and games. Will you?
When: We will resume playtime when the yards dry up and the weather turns nicer.
Where: 1027 Tanney Lane, Hudson, WI 54016 (directions)
How much: $5 per dog
Prerequisites: Dog-friendly dogs. Proof of vaccination required.
First time at Doggie Playtime? Don’t forget your proof of vaccination. For safety reasons, we can’t let dogs play without first seeing that slip of paper from your vet.
Doggie Playtime Benefits
Exercise. It’s not just the running, fetching, and frolicking that tires your dog so wonderfully. It’s the dog play. Dog-dog games like friendly wrestling, tug, and chase—when supervised for safety—are some of the most effective ways for dogs to get a workout.
Socialization. Regular dog-dog interactions are vital to your dog’s health and well-being. Like us, dogs are social creatures that like to spend time with their own kind every now and then. What’s more, playtime strengthens your dog’s social skills, making him easier to take out and about.
Training. Playtime is a great opportunity to practice your commands in a challenging environment, because few things are more alluring for your dog than fun with other dogs. When you can get a bullet-proof recall from a dog engaged in play, you know you have trained your dog thoroughly.
