Check out the quick clip of Pampered Pooch Playground setting up for the Twin Cities Pride Festival on KSTP, Channel 5.
Today was a very exciting day, and sad day for the PPP crew! One of our first daycare dogs, Moby the french bulldog, had his last day with us! He will be moving to Sweeden with his parents! Moby’s mom is the person who suggested that we get beds for the playrooms.. Now we have over 20 beds We are really doing to miss Moby, everyone was giving him lots of hugs today!! Moby even brought the staff a bunch of Sweedish food, and it was YUMMY!!! Thanks!
We also had 2 birthdays to celebrate today. Izzie (the terrier) and Jack (the boston) both brought treats for everyone!
Finally, we got the good news that Guy passed his service dog test and has been placed in a home so he can work! Guy was being fostered by one of our customers and it was the first time they tried doggy daycare with a service dog in training! We are so glad that Guy found his forever home!! Now Guy’s parents are fostering another service dog in training, Phoebe! I hope she follows in Guy’s footsteps!
Oh, one more thing.. We had 5 Bernese dogs in our building today, with the youngest being 14 weeks old and the oldest was 6 years!
Have a good day!
Hope everyone has a good night!
People often ask how we can tell the doggy daycare dogs apart so well. Honestly, it is because we are with them all the time so it is very easy for us and you learn not only how the dog looks, but their personality. Sometimes we will tell the owner that their dog has a twin, but it was very obvious this morning. 2 dogs that looked alike walked in at the exact same time, and the owners were laughing at how much they looked the same. Chloe and Shilo walked in and the owners were both laughing at how much they were the same. As much as we trust ourselves, just to be safe in the play areas, we do put tags on dogs when they look like other dogs so we are always positive we send the correct one home; this happens often with the golden retrievers and labs that can all blend together.
Have a great day!
This morning I was driving in and decided to see if the Doggy Daycare crew wanted anyting… I chatted the daycare and got their order, went through the Starbucks drive through and I was all excited to use my new iPhone app to pay for the drinks…. Then I found out that they don’t accept the iPhone app through the drive through. I was so bummed because I was so excited to try it! That got me thinking… I wonder if there is a way we can use the PPP iPhone app to speed up the check out process at the daycare. My wheels are spinning and I have sent a few emails about it.
And the best part is that our staff was very happy for the coffee this morning!
Have a great night.
