Dog Of The Month

Dog of the Month - October

Every month we have a different theme for our "Dog Of The Month" and in October the theme was "Best Tricks"!  All of our staff members nominate dogs that we thought fit the theme, and we narrow it down to 5 dogs and we vote on the winner! It is always hard for us to pick a winner, but we are excited to announce that "Grape" was the winner!

Sit, Stay, Down are her basic tricks, but she can wave goodbye, spin in circles and even do a back flip!  Seriously, a backflip! Grape can pull her daddy on the skateboard and loves to chase and catch balls!  Seriously, this girl has some awesome tricks!  When grape comes to doggy daycare, we love to hear what her latest and greatest trick is!

Grape scored the honor of being our October Dog of the Month, and received a photo shoot with Eva Noth Photography!  Grape's mom also has an Etsy store called Ruff Life Studio that does some cool dog prints.

Dog of the Month - March

Kinnick is a 120 pound Bernese Mountain Dog that is a regular face in doggy daycare and our hotel!  Don't let Kinnick's size fool you, he loves everyone and if you rub his hips the correct way, he will even dance!  When he started to attend doggy daycare and his mom drove a Prius, since then Kinnick has outgrown the Prius and his mom was forced into buying a bigger car to fit him :)

Those of you from Iowa, know who Kinnick is named after, but click here if you want to learn more!  Kinnick is also the older brother to "pancake" who is a guinea pig with the markings of a Bernese Mountain Dog!

Dog Of The Month - July

We have teamed up with our good friend Eva Noth Photography to present "Dog of the Month".  Each month we will have a different theme, and our staff will vote on who the best fit for the theme is.  Any dog that comes to doggy daycare or spends the night in our hotel is eligible to become "Dog of the Month".  In July our theme was "Best Lobby Greeter" and Mack, one of our employees dogs won!  We would not normally pick a staff dog, but this was the first month of doing it.  The winning dog gets the honor of their picture hanging in the lobby for the following month and they receive a free photo session with Eva Noth Photography!

Mack is a Lab, Basset Hound, Visla mix that was adopted through Second Hand HoundsJess, our manager and Mack's doggy momma loves to outfit Mack with stylish bandannas and collars.  Jess and Mack have also been known to have matching bandannas!  Next time you stop in, Mack will give you a great greeting in the lobby!
