If daycare if getting a bit too pricey, then you might want to look at a few ways you can save money. Here’s how you might be able to save money on doggy daycare.
Shop around - Have a look around your local area to see roughly how much people are charging for daycare. You could be paying a premium without realising. Check to see you are paying a fair amount and look for day care facilities that offer fair deals. However, be careful not to just go for the cheapest option. Make sure you go for a reputable company that you know will be able to cater to your dog’s needs.
Special offers for more than one dog -Some day care centres will do special offers if you have more than one dog. The more dogs you have, the bigger discount you can get. Not all daycare centres are open to this but it’s definitely worth asking.
Ask for a discount for longer periods - If you know you will need your dog to be looked after for longer periods then ask if you can get any discount. Some daycare centre will give discounts to regular and loyal customers who use their services a lot.
Do half days occasionally - A lot of dog owners will book their dog in for a full day when they really only need a half day. Save a lot of cash by putting your dog in for half days when you know you are going to be home sooner. Half days are generally half the price.
Look out for special offers - Keep an eye out for special offers that daycare centres are running. Check their website and social media for regular offers and take advantage of deals when you can.
Drop your dog off - It usually costs a lot more to put your dog in daycare if the daycare company has to pick them up and drop them off. If you are able to drop them off and pick them up it could save you some money on the daily cost.
Get friends and family to help where possible - Don’t always rely on a daycare company, see if your friends and family will help out occasionally.
Try smaller home daycare businesses - Some of the smaller daycare business can be a little bit cheaper. The bigger companies often have a lot of interest so they are able to charge a bit more.
