Doggy daycares are a godsend for those who struggle to leave their canine babies alone at home when they have to go to work. Knowing that they're in a safe space where they get to play/socialize with other dogs while under the watchful eye of trained professionals is a big weight lifted off their shoulders. Thanks to such daytime care centers, they no longer have to spend their day worrying about whether their furbaby is sad and lonely at home or on a destructive streak throughout the house. However, not all dogs are cut out for a disciplined daycare life.
Twitter user Sophie Haigney shared how their dad's dogs got kicked out of daycare because they were forming a gang. The hilarious anecdote garnered over 159k likes and 11.5k retweets on the social media platform and prompted other Twitter users to share the times when their dogs were asked not to return to dog daycare. The thread that came out of it is the perfect dose of canine comedy to brighten up your day.

Radar got the boot for constantly taking over the biggest bed and snarling at any dog who tried to come near it. So smol, so selfish, likes comfort. pic.twitter.com/nrwxF9vaU6— lesley m (@stainedandlit) July 23, 2021
Carlos the bulldog got the boot because he didn’t like the other dogs around his BFF Otis. They locked him in a room where he proceeded to eat their couch cushions. pic.twitter.com/I6uKMwtfAl— Helie (@helie_bel) July 22, 2021
My great dane was put into the little dog room, where he was thoroughly bullied, because he kept getting mad at the big dogs for roughhousing and standing between them like a canine hall monitor.— Rachel (@lovecultivated) July 22, 2021
He is 500% a snitch. pic.twitter.com/HoNd6uLEHV
Mine got kicked out cause he unlocked all the gates and doors and let the dogs out. They were running all over the lobby and office. He also broke into the food room and helped himself! pic.twitter.com/Y12CdkQ8tV— Michele Sloan (@MicheleSloan11) July 22, 2021
Mine was deemed ‘not suitable’ as he loved the lady so much he spent his time ushering all the other dogs away from the human. He was exhausted by 10 a.m. pic.twitter.com/xiDLyQJ3Pb— J Graham (@Jg0_100) July 22, 2021
My dog was kicked out because he took all of the toys out them in the corner and peed on them. It was pretty embarrassing— Rachess (@rachelcraik) July 22, 2021
Our husky got kicked out for unlocking one of the gates and letting all of the dogs out and then stayed back to play with the toys by herself. Too smart for her own good pic.twitter.com/OBmPtoNrE0— TD Hunter (@tdhunter52) July 23, 2021
This lady was moved to the bigger pen because when she gets mad she “smashes” puppies. pic.twitter.com/bMHMVkCkEp— KLontheDL (@DlLonthe) July 22, 2021
Same, couldn’t go to the last puppy class cause they were playing too rough 😂 pic.twitter.com/6DpvXW7yS1— kelly (@kellyb239) July 22, 2021
Our Cocoa was kicked out because she is too pretty and all the boys wanted to mount her (even though all parties have been fixed) which caused numerous snarl and snap fests. pic.twitter.com/GWmtg4PbBj— Richard Ryan (@rickkryan) July 22, 2021
Happened to my two boys as well. They’d pick a dog each day to harass and follow. Still good boys!! pic.twitter.com/EwbNBCcaiS— Josephine Reece (@eceeroj) July 22, 2021
My GSD was *almost* kicked out of daycare for fighting until they noticed that she was being jealous and possessive over our other dog. Now they have to go to separate locations. pic.twitter.com/keIWYmvijJ— So Tired. (@ChristinaM33) July 22, 2021
My grandson Papi got kicked out for being the ladies man that he is and trying to hump all the girls pic.twitter.com/abVXd74Q3o— 💋Sunny💋 (@gamer_chic434) July 22, 2021
These 2 got in trouble for "policing" the other dogs at the kennel one time and had to get split up 🤦♂️ pic.twitter.com/cfTWuJLsyw— Steve C (@vanisle7) July 22, 2021
She didn't get kicked out but I got a note about my dog Rose mugging a puppy for it's treat at daycare. pic.twitter.com/y85H3XTQQi— TheSmartCat (@TheSmartCat42) July 22, 2021
Mine escaped the 'time out' pen at one (jumped a 5ft fence, can't remember what he's done to need time out) and took out a cat flap and a kitchen drainpipe at another.— Eddie Johnston (@shewritestosay) July 22, 2021
Were they recruiting? Mine was expelled for excessive headbutting.— Jefferson Mok (he/him) (@jeffersonmok) July 22, 2021
