2 year anniversary pictures

pickler the boxerA HUGE thanks to one of our favorite pet photographers, Sarah Beth Photography for stopping out at our anniversary party a few weeks ago to take pictures of all of the dogs.  She just sent us the pictures, and they are AMAZING as always.  You can check them out in our photo gallery.  A note about Sarah Beth Photography, if you book a session with her, make sure to mention Pampered Pooch Playground and you will get a special savings! In the picture is Pickler, our first boxer that came to daycare just weeks after we opened!

Thanks again to everyone that stopped out!  What a great day and a great 2 years!  We could never have done it without YOU!!!!!

Looking Back - The past 2 years

roxy the bernese mountain dog2 years of Doggy Daycare!!!  Wow, how time flies! Yesterday was our 2 year anniversary party and I can't thank all of you enough for making Pampered Pooch Playground what it is today!   I remember when we had our first open house before we opened and we had over 100 people show up to "check us out".  Then the first day we were open our first dog Bindi, was ready to come and play at 6:50am.  The first few days we had 2 or 3 dogs and I was very excited!  Yesterday at the anniversary party it was great to see so many of our customers that have been with us since the first month we opened and I kept talking about how the dogs have grown and changed.  I feel like all of the dogs are like our little kids.

What some of you might not have noticed at the anniversary party is 3 of the employees that were there were employees that we hired before we opened.  Anna, Vanessa and Heather (our trainer and manager) all were with us at our grand opening celebration 2 years ago.  After the anniversary party we went out with some of our staff and we were talking about how things have changed and how we have evolved.

A big thank you to Tami our groomer who owns Muddy Paws Cheesecake for catering all of the wonderful food that we had.  She went over the top and made so many great dishes for everyone to enjoy.  Thanks to Sarah Beth Photography for stopping out and taking some pictures of all of the fun!  The pictures will be up soon and we will share them with all of you. Thanks to Ellen one of our managers for baking the doggy cake and goodies!  And finally to all of our wonderful staff (I would list all of their names here, but everyone helped out so much) that was working at the event and to all of our customers!  You guys are amazing and we love all of your dogs!!  Look forward to some really great things to come later this year!!

Ok, enough of this, I feel like I am giving one of those cheesy acceptance speeches at the Grammy's!

Have a great Sunday!

Dr Sully and Camielle

Today, Anna, one of our doggy daycare employees got a great picture of Sully (who has the alter ego "Dr. Sully" to his friends and family) and Camielle outside having a great time. Today I was working hard trying to put things together for our 2 year anniversary party which is on Saturday, May 22nd. This should be lots of fun, and if you have not RSVP'ed please do so by clicking here.

2 years!

Today was our 2 year anniversary and I spent some of the afternoon in the "Waggers Way" play area talking to Vanessa who was one of one of out firststaff members about how things have changed.  She remembers a day when Trycia called her to come in early because we had 9 dogs and needed extra help!  Now we are able to look back and laugh at that.  One thing that we have really tried hard to do in the past 2 years is to always make sure we are having fun, and taking excellent care of our the dogs,our customers and our staff.  Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 22nd from noon-2pm for our 1 year anniversary party!  More details will follow soon. You might have noticed our new outside area.  We are very excited for this area, and today was the first full day of use and the dogs really loved it!  The grass is recycled from an old baseball stadium and we are one of the first daycares in the country to do this.  Brandy (in the picture) was one of the dogs that had so much fun outside today!  Brandy was also one of our first dogs that came to doggy daycare when we first opened!

Have a great night.
