|As a long time pit bull owner I have to say I would never drop any of my dogs off at a day care with all sized dogs being watched by a person getting paid minumum wage. Especially at a doggy daycare without me, with other dogs who may or may not have behaviorial issues. They could be vulnerable, scared, or who knows. Sure in a perfect world all the dogs would play happily but as dumb as a lot of dog owners are would you really chance it with your dog?
Would you allow strangers to drop their unknown dog off at your house and be liable for its actions or violence it may inccur in your home. We cant even get home insurance through a majority of companies....who would insure petsmart with multiple bullies, haha?
Not to mention, sure we like to think we are responsible pit bull owners but look gangsta joe down the street with his scary pit bull, tehy cant say oh your pit bull can come but his cant.
Ok ok I see where you are all coming from BUT we dont live in a ideal world, its reality folks. I mean even if you could....would you really? Have you seen those rooms they mush all the dogs in? Sure my girl is safe and secure at home but if I just dropped her at a strange place with strange dogs I cant be sure she wouldnt lash out of fear, distress, or frusteration.
And in addition it is our jobs to keep our dogs safe and that means getting blamed for things they dont do. You all see it at the dog park when you go and your there to monitor it, its crazy.
Lets say a accident or fight did happen and they blame your dog just because he's a pit bull, do you really wanan go through that and put your pup through that? Plus they still allow pitties in the store and training, they dont hate our dogs I'm sure they just dont want to get stuck in the pit bull battle. We took this fight on by our own choice, they didnt. Plus do you know how many ignorant people would see a pit bull....nice or not in the day care and decide against letting their dog join.
