A Typical Day at MIBO

What do the dogs do all day??

8:00am to 9:30amDogs for DayCare arrive (more friends!) and introductions are made. Belongings are placed in the locker. Dogs that require breakfast are fed and others are taken out to the yard to potty (Potty breaks occur throughout the day!). After meals, dogs that have been fed will be kept away for 30mins so that their tum-tums don’t get upset. Playtime is almost here!

9.30am to 12.00pm
Morning activities include: ball-fetching, wrestling (a favorite activity!), sniffing and investigations, running, climbing, etc.

12:00 to 4:00pm
Nap Time: Yup, they do take a break from their fun filled day! Time for all to wind down with small snacks (owner approved) and a drink. They rest with soft music, a light breeze and lavender aromatherapy. Just like children, this is an important quiet time for them to unwind, relax and recharge. After their well-deserved rest, they get individual attention for each dog.

4:00 to 5:00pm
A trip to the nearby open field or park with lots of space to run and let of steam for the ones that need it most! Located a short stroll from the house, we take 2 to 3 dogs at a time so that we can ensure their safety while they head for some outdoor fun (see pictures of field trips here)

5:00 to 7:00pm
Clean up: All dogs get wipe down after the whole day of play, fun and friends. Dogs that require a quick shower will get one at this time. Dogs will then get a rest period before getting picked up (DayCare) or their dinner. A quick stroll outdoor before lights out ensures a peaceful night ahead.

7:00 to 8:00pm
Goodnight! Dogs end the day with a rawhide chew stick and get tucked into bed within designated areas.

It's a dog's life... :)

Visitors also pop by during the day, so they get to say hi and mingle with other humans. We on the other hand spend the day cleaning... monitoring... cleaning... feeding... cleaning... cuddling... cleaning... and... well you get the picture :P
