For many Americans juggling work, life and pets can seem impossible. But thankfully, doggie day care has come on the scene to help relieve some of that pressure. As Pet Pulse correspondent Stacey Sears found out, K-9 retreats are pretty Ritzy. … more ›

I'm lucky enough to work close enough to home to be able to come home for lunch a few times a week to let my pups out. Even though I'm not there long, only a half hour, it gives them time for a potty break and helps break up the day for them. I might consider doggie daycare if I wasn't able to get home those few days a week.

Doggy daycare was a blessing for me with one of my fosters who just had more energy than I or my dogs knew what to do with. It's also been wonderful for my pooches to get used to being left somewhere and not having to fret over whether I'm coming back. The socialization is great,

I used to (1970's) work at a dog boarding kennel in Memphis. Our dogs always looked forward to coming as it was an exceptionally nice and clean enviornment.

This is a personal deate. My dog personally would NOT like being out of her own home. Home is where she has her comfort zone. On the other hand, this would a great place to work. Kinda like being a grandmoter but being able to give tem back to their mothers at the end of the day.

This brings up the whole idea of spending time with your animals. If you are not at home very much and can't spend time with your pet, is the pet really right for you to have. I think this could be a heated debate.

I bet these dogs would prefer to be playing with their owners at a dog park. But this is better than being home alone.

This is a great option if it is monetarily feasible. I like the idea of someone being there for my babies 24-7.

There are all kinds of doggie day cares in the Chicago land area from no frills to luxury places with varying price tags. It is important to check them out however to be sure of the care the dog will get.

A friend, similar to another commenter, has a dog with seperation anxiety. In the beginning he sat on the sidelines while the other dogs played during playtime. Now he immediately joins in the fun. It is a great help on those few times when she has to leave town also because they will also board him. This way he is already comfortable from having spent some days at the location and does not feel abandon if she leaves him there for a couple of days when she has to go out of town on those few occasions she can not take him with her.

This is a good idea for those who can afford it, but then again I wonder why some people have pets if they have no time.

I would love to take my dogs to one of these. That way they do get more exercise than what I can give them. I wouldn't do it every day but maybe twice a week. I think it is good because it also socializes your dogs with others and that is always good to do.

good for pets if you have no time, but if this is the case, why have them in the first place?

I would rather give some of my money to a shelter or something. There are a lot cheaper places that can take care of your pets if you need them to.

Pet day care is a good solution. I have 2 dogs and a doggy door so they aren't lonesome and can be in or out and have supplies of food and water inside. If I didn't have this, I'd be trying to find care just like I did with the kids.

If you can afford it, it might be nice. But even when I'm home, my parents dog sleeps most of the day and he has the cats to keep him company.
