Over the past few weeks you might have noticed some construction going on at the doggy daycare… Well we are happy to announce that the Canine Cove, Luxury Suites and Training Room have a fresh new look. All these rooms got a brand new floor installed. We are also updating a few of the luxury suites (details on this very soon). Keeping Pampered Pooch Playground looking fresh, clean and up to our high standards is a tough process and we work very hard to make this happen everyday. The small dogs LOVE the brand new rubber floor that has been installed in the Canine Cove.
Look for the details of the luxury suites very soon when they are completed later this week.
Have a great night.
As some of you might have noticed, “something has been going on in the Ruff House”…. Over the past few weeks, we have been gradually upgrading our HVAC system for the play areas. Most of the work has been completed in the morning, and during that time, we are able to move dogs into other rooms, or use our outside area so that they are not in the way. Fresh, purified air is very important when running a dog daycare (many places never do this), and our old unit was doing pretty good, but it was running on it’s “last legs”…. So rather than waiting for something to break, we take the pro-active approach and do a complete upgrade. While many of our 2 legged customers will never notice any change, all of our 4 legged customers will be very excited for a more efficient system that can switch over the air in the room about 8 times per hour (industry standard is about 3 times per hour). Tomorrow is the big day when we get to flip the switch on the new unit… Like always, construction is never easy to do, and our #1 goal is always to make sure all the dogs are safe and out of the way when they are working. I will give you all the details on the new system soon after we get to turn it on.
Have a good night!
Please note that we posted this on April Fools Day…..
Starting Monday, April 9th, Pampered Pooch Playground will expand and begin offering baby daycare in our canine cove. But, this is no typical baby daycare, they will be interacting with the dogs in the canine cove. What can be better than 10 dogs and 10 babies all having fun in the same room. We will be lowering the webcams so you can see the happy expressions on all the babies faces when they are crawling around with all the dogs. Once a baby reaches 1 year old they will be able to interact with the dogs in the Ruff House. One final change will be our name… It will now become “Pampered Pooch and Baby Playground”. Prices for baby daycare will be the same rate as our dog daycare rates. Within the next 60 days, we hope to expand our baby daycare into baby overnight care. You can make your reservations for baby daycare by clicking here. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
Have a great night!
Side note… The way we were able to get this great picture was by holding the ball next to the camera!
Have a great night!
The other day, I was hanging out in the Canine Cove at doggy daycare playing with the dogs. I decided to break out some of the balls, and it is always interesting to see who gets really excited for them and who can care less. Jack, in the picture LOES to chase the ball, then he like to put all of the balls by him! One of the most popular questions we get is why don’t you use toys and balls in all the rooms. We only use the toys and balls in the Canine Cove and it is because there are not as many possession issues. Imagine bringing out 30 balls in the Ruff House, all the dogs always want 1 of the balls and this creates aggression which can lead to a fight. This is the reason we don’t use them in the other rooms. In the canine cove, if there are any dogs that think they “own” the balls, we just stop using them. We know dogs enjoy the toys, but none of us enjoy breaking things up and we always put safety first.
Have a good weekend!
Indy is one little energetic Yorkie mix that loves to play in the Canine Cove. She runs in the front door and we can’t take her back to play with the rest of her friends fast enough. Yesterday Trycia was snapping some new pictures. You can click here to see them. So many people thing we hire a professional photographer to take the pictures in the photo gallery, but Trycia is just very talented!
Just a quick reminder, we only have about 5 spaces left in our hotel for New Years Eve. If you need that space, please let us know so your pooch can ring in the new year with us!
Have a good day!
