There are many doggy daycares that look at our business model and want to know how we do things. There is a new dog daycare that is opening in Chicago, and they wanted me to come in and install their webcams. I love to help out a new business, and really enjoy helping them out, plus it is always fun to see other dog daycares and how they do things. So this weekend I am in Chicago installing webcams.

Looking for training? Heather has a bunch of classes starting next week. Details are on the dog training page.

Today was another big day for our dog daycare
guests. The day started out with our hotel dogs helping me shovel our outside play area. We shovel an area for some of our smaller dogs or dogs that don’t like the snow. It was great to see the happiness in the dogs when they ran outside and saw all of the snow. Then later in the morning, Trycia
and I bundled up and brought the daycare dogs outside for a long play session. They had so much fun tearing it up in the snow. We put a few videos on our facebook fan page
Did you catch us on the FOX 9 Morning News today? M.A. Rosco stopped out to show off what it was like to do doga. If you missed the clip, you can watch it by clicking here.
This morning I received a frantic call from Max and Luxy’s mom (Max is the black dog and Lucy is the brown one in the picture). The other day she was telling me about Max and how he learned to open the front door of her house (including the deadbolt). Today, he opened it and was sitting outside when her neighbor called. Then she decided that Max and Lucy needed to come to doggy daycare
today. Max has not figured out how to open our doors yet
Have a good night!
This past weekend, 2 Shar-pei’s
spent Thanksgiving with is. Penny Lane is the tan one, and Jude is the black one. Jude gets really, really excited when I walk into the daycare
room, he is the first one to run up and say hello! Once you start petting these 2, they don’t let you stop. Over the weekend, we were sitting on some of the equipment in the Zen Den and Jude was right there next to me. It takes these guys a little while to open up with new people, but the minute they open up, they are all love!!
Today, we sent out a friendly reminder to make reservations for the holidays. We are 99% full for the 25th, so hurry and make that reservation.
Have a good night!
