Doggy Day Care - Dog not keen to go in....

We've got a 7 month old puppy who is a gentle soul. On a tuesday morning DH and I are both out of the house so we have tried puppy day care - a recommended place. She was very not sure the first time even though we'd got there early - but there was a couple of barky dogs excited to go in. She went though. Next tuesday still not keen but went in. She was shaking this morning. But once behind the counter happily took herself in and trotted round the barrier to where the other dogs are.

The girl said she was fine once she's in and it's just the reception for some reason.

Anyone any experience of this?

Next Tuesday, would you be able to observe her for the first 15 minutes or so to ensure she really is happy when she gets in there?

Dogs can be funny animals; it may be that this setting is a bit much for her and she'd be happier with a home based day care, or a visiting dog walker.
