We are very pro daycare. Tonka has actually fallen over doing the wiggle dance because he is so happy to be there. If you can find a place you trust you're golden. I don't know if we would have gotten through the puppy stage without daycare to tire him out lol. He would sleep for almost a day straight afterwards. He has had a few ear puncture marks but it is to be expected as he plays VERY rough and his best friends are Rotties, mastiffs and an Irish wolfhound lol. The bigger the better. They ALWAYS call me immediately and tell me so I can come get him or just leave him be. Every time has been minor and he keeps playing without even noticing... They r the ones to notice the blood :p crazy dog.
