Doggie Day Care

Channel 7's Today Tonight ran a segment on how important Doggie day care centres are becoming.



Doggie Day Care In Demand As Perth Residents Work Longer

PERTH'S pampered pooches are going barking mad for doggie day care.

As the work-life balance becomes harder to juggle, dog owners are asking for help to look after their furry friends.

Dog walker Cahris Mahney said demand for her to walk and play with dogs during the day had become so strong she may start her own doggie day care centre next year.

She said her new business would operate similar to a childcare service, where people would bring dogs to her.

"I'm going to go to America and hopefully do work experience at The Barkley (a Californian pet hotel) to bring the doggie day care and overnight stays model here," she said. "There's a demand for them. There are a few (doggie) day cares in Perth that have two-month waiting periods."

Ms Mahney also offers a dog-sitting service and said she was booked up for next Christmas.

She said many owners treated their dogs like children and wanted to make sure they were equally well looked after.

Perth Dog Walking operator Jenny Sparkes said she had also noticed increased demand for day services.

Ms Sparkes said many of her clients only had time for short walks with their pooches and used her services to give them a bit of company.

The UK's People's Dispensary for Sick Animals charity found the proportion of dogs left alone for five hours or more on a regular basis had increased from 18 per cent in 2011 to 25 per cent in 2013.

Dog walker takes the lead


Walkies... Dog walker Cahris Mahney is a keen advocate of Walk to Work Day.

ALFRED COVE dog walker Cahris Mahney will be walking to work on Friday to promote physical activity and health and is encouraging others to do the same.

While Ms Mahney walks most days for work, she said that this Friday, October 1, she would be walking as part of the Walk to Work Day initiative.

“Walk to Work day is an important message for all Australians – we live in a country with beautiful fresh air and lots of sunlight but too many people ... do not take advantage of it,” she said. 

“I try my hardest to walk to work, catch a bus or park a couple of blocks away from my destination just to squeeze in a few more minutes of exercising.”

Ms Mahney recently started her business Barks in the Park where she walks to her clients’ houses and then walks their dogs.

Organisations that register for Walk to Work Day will receive free information, support and ideas on how to make walking work in the workplace.
