If you recently adopted a dog in need of a home, congratulations! You’re in for a fun, exciting, and rewarding adventure with your new furry pal.

By now, you may have realized that being a dog parent carries its own responsibilities. Aside from feeding and grooming, you also need to play, get your dog to socialize with other dogs, and schedule pet vaccinations, among others. Even a simple walk in the park can often require planning ahead and clearing your schedule for that period. All of these while also juggling work, family, and social activities.

At Barks N’ Rec, we understand that this could be overwhelming, especially if you work full-time and are worried about leaving your dog alone at home for hours. If you’re looking for a way to keep your adopted dog safe and happy while you go about your day, we are the best dog daycare in Los Angeles for your furry friend.

What is dog daycare?

It’s exactly what it says — a safe, fun, and engaging place where owners can drop off their pets when they are unable to watch them.

Dogs can stay at daycares for a variety of reasons, like when their owners have to go to work, for vacation, or leave for an extended period of time.


At Barks N’ Rec, pet owners can go about their day with peace of mind from knowing that their dog is enjoying its own day. Our daycare service is designed to provide your pets with the exercise and socialization they need in a secure, monitored environment.

How soon can I take my adopted dog to daycare?

If you’ve recently adopted your dog, it’s best to spend some quality time with it first before introducing it to daycare. This will allow your pet to adjust to its new home, release tension, and build a routine first before it socializes with other dogs.

For young pups, consider waiting until it is at least 12 weeks old and has completed the core canine vaccines before being introduced to daycare. This is a best practice in general pet care to ensure its safety.

If you adopted an adult dog, it’s ideal to introduce it to daycare after one to three months of spending time in your home. To ensure the safety of your dog and the daycare handlers, it’s best to bring your adopted dog to a vet first for vaccination and check-up.

At Barks N’ Rec, we require dogs attending daycare to be vaccinated and assessed for behavior and temperament to ensure the safety of all.
