Here’s a group of photos that Laszlo & Gisella of Bed & Biscuit (S. Van Dorn Road, Ithaca, NY) took. Toka goes to day care there on Thursdays, and has a blast.

Everyone who works there is patient, caring, and generous with their time and attention.  Toka fusses a bit when we turn onto their road, knowing that he’ll spend the day playing & napping.

While a few people in my circle are not proponents of doggie day care, in my opinion, going once a week has helped Toka improve his dog communication skills.  Because Kiyo was lame, they were kept separate, and he was a bit of a butt-head when it came to communicating with other dogs.

Now he’s got some dog manners, and gets to run around like crazy, blowing off steam & getting a lot of exercise.  I get a *ton* of work done, and Kiyo enjoys time alone with me.  A win-win situation for all involved.

When we’re away, we generally hire a dog sitter to stay with the pups.  I’d happily board Toka at B&B – two thumbs up!
