Jacksonville’s First Dog Park and Bar

You’ve just completed Jacksonville’s #1 in-home dog training program, and you’re looking for somewhere to show off your furry friend’s new skills. 

Why not enjoy a free beer on your first visit at Jacksonville’s first dog park and draft beer/coffee bar? 

Here at Come. Sit. Stay. there’s no other place we’d rather take our pups than Kanine Social, so much so to finish our training this is where we do our final test for our dog training program!

And if you can’t make it yourself, they’re actually a doggy day care and offer boarding as well.  

Never visited a doggy day care before? Let us tell you of the benefits of them! 

If you’ve never visited a doggy day care before, your pup is definitely missing out! Many dogs lack stimulation, sufficient outlets for their energy, or opportunities to socialize with other dogs. Visiting Jacksonville’s best doggy daycare and dog park is a great way to get all of these for your favourite furry friend! Here are five reasons why you might consider sending your dog to doggy day care!

  • Human Contact – While we know you’re giving your pup all the attention and then some when you’re home, what about when you’re at work for hours? Bringing your dog to daycare provides not only additional attention for your dog, but also introduces them to new, dog-friendly people in a controlled environment. At Kanine Social, we understand how important it is for your dog to be in a safe and happy environment while you’re away. It’s also important to note that your dog will never be left alone or caged while in our care.

  • Exercise & Socialization – Dogs, especially young dogs and puppies, are naturally curious and active. Just like kids, if they don’t have an outlet for this energy, it leads to problems. If you’ve never come home to a ripped up shoe or even worse, stray dollar bills, then you’ve lucked out. Dogs left alone during the day, without stimulation, will become bored and anxious, which will manifest into a variety of destructive behaviors, such as chewing, excessive barking or howling, potty accidents, shredding carpets and furniture—the list is endless. A quality dog daycare program will offer healthy activity and stimulation for your pup, which helps alleviate negative behaviors. Not to mention, socialisation! It’s one of the most critical training necessities in a dog’s life. You’ve likely heard that dogs are “pack” animals—this is true. There is nothing a (well-socialized) dog enjoys more than being with other dogs. And as much as we enjoy playing and bonding with our dogs, they will always get more fun and exercise with their kindred species. In addition, the better socialized your dog is, the more confidence they have, and the better behaved they are in a variety of different settings.

  • Relief from boredom – Just like above, the reason your pup is ripping into things like your carpet, or your shoes, is because they’re not experiencing stimulation! Letting your fur ball visit doggy daycares like Kanine Social will relieve all that boredom that’s bubbling up within your dog.

  • Expert-Supervised Playtime –  Often owners themselves are not comfortable monitoring play between dogs. They aren’t familiar with what is appropriate and what is dangerous. A proper daycare has experienced staff that have had training to interpret dog body language so they can ensure all the dogs are comfortable.

  • A Great Solution for Busy Owners – And lastly, some owners feel guilty for working more than 8 hours and leaving their dog at home. Day care will allow the dog multiple opportunities to potty and be entertained while the owner is away.

Overall, providing your dog with the opportunity to socialize, exercise and play while you’re at work will result in a happier, healthier pup for you to come home to. Kanine Social is Jacksonville’s premier doggie daycare and only private indoor/outdoor dog park with a craft beer and coffee bar. Stop in today to see what all the barks about!
