|I work as a "canine playcare attendant." Typically we keep a very close eye on older dogs, and any altercations we've had have involved older dogs. I think it's just too much for most of them. Like someone else said, it's typically best for younger dogs who have the energy to play and mingle all day. Most of our older dogs just like to hang out, so we typically have an older less active group of mixed sized dogs who just chill outside together. They also get regular breaks in the nap room. Mention your concern to your daycare place and see what they say, if they can give him a long midday nap inside or something similar. If he's not enjoying it, you don't want him to keep going because he might start to resent the other dogs and get cranky.
As for a walker, look for a reputable company, I prefer that over an individual so that you have backup. You also want them to be licensed and insured.
