Every once in a while someone will ask if we are ever going to get video cameras installed so they can watch their dog play at daycare.  While I totally understand the allure of this, I’m afraid the answer is always going to be “No”.  The main reason for this is because it makes me REALLY uncomfortable knowing I could be on camera for anyone to see at any time. Ugh. I’m not a big fan of reality TV and I definitely don’t want “big brother” watching me all day long.

So to make up for the lack of video cameras, we try with the blog and our Facebook page to give people a pretty good idea as to what happens here – we show the dogs playing, hanging out, resting, getting snuggles, etc.  That, in a nutshell, is what they are doing all day long.  Most dogs don’t play the WHOLE time they are here (although there are a few exceptions!). There are definitely ebbs and flows to the activity levels both for the dogs as a group, and for each individual as well.

I stuck the camera to the fence for a few hours in the “big dog area” this morning starting at around 8 a.m. and sped up the footage so that you wouldn’t have to sit here for hours watching. I did my best to stay out the camera’s way, yet keep the dogs in front of it so you had something to watch.  The dogs love to follow us around so wherever we go, we usually have at least half of them at our feet – playing, chewing on toys or just relaxing. I walk by a few times and you can see the group following.

I still can’t figure out how to embed a video here so you’ll have to check it out on YouTube.  Enjoy!

  1. I’m going to guess that Paisley is one of the exceptions who plays all day.
