Doggy daycare question - June 2nd 2017, 04:33 PM

So, Bentley goes to daycare. He is picked up and then dropped off. As I work long hours this works perfectly for my schedule. The daycare he goes to is outside my city on a farm, lots of space, trails, and dogs he can socialize with.

They pick him up and then drop him off. During the week days a lady picks him up and than a different lady comes to pick him up. I want to say thank you to them for doing this, is it uncommon to give gift cards to them at the end of the month, like $10 gift cards to a coffee shop for an example. Does anyone do this?

I am only asking because, I do want to do this but would it be a lot to give them a gift card even though I am paying for his daycare?

If I do decide to do this, I have no idea what would be appropriate to give. Is this a common practice people do?

I don't know that giving people that you pay to do something for you such as babysit your dog is common but I do know that it is something that some people do. I don't, necessarily, think it would be wrong to show them that you appreciate what they do for you either. In most cases people are going to be thankful. However, there might be a small chance that they will not be able to take a gift card from you.

I know there are rules in most companies about taking gifts from clients. I know that even schools have rules about what kinds of gifts teachers can accept from students and parents. So, you might want to try and find out if they would be able to accept a gift before doing it.

I never thought about it that way before. It did give me something to think about. Thank you Jenna.

I know some give gifts around Holidays which is more common than every month, I think.

Personally, we have someone comes Monday to Friday to walk our dogs in the middle of the day (when we're at school or parents at work) and we round up the amount we're paying a week to the next hundred. This is the same person who watches our dogs when we go away so we don't have to board them. We give her a gift certificate for a full spa treatment on the holidays as well as a cash bonus at the end of each month because she goes above and beyond and will do last minute walks.


I think it depends on your financial situation and if it is a company, you want to make sure they can accept gift cards.

I walk my neighbours' dog sometimes for a small fee. I will be honest, once there are tonnes of dogs - your hand's full, bribing me won't matter
