Linden Hills Woofstock 2013

It is no secret... The Linden Hills Woofstock is on of our favorite events of the year, which is why we have sponsored it for the the past 5 years!  Last Saturday, Todd Walker from FOX 9 stopped out to the Bubbly Paws booth to see what fun things we had going on.  A big thanks to Off Leash Collars for use of Ping (the black lab).  Also featured in the segment is Kay Elliott who wrote the children's book, SunDogs.  

Flea and Tick season is here!

We have been warning all of our customers that that the Flea and Tick season is going to be a big one this year.  We require all of our doggy daycare and hotel dogs to be on prevention from April-October, but this spring, it might not be a bad idea to start early.  FOX 9 did a great story on how to protect your pooch!

Twin Cities Dog Daycare Association

I am not sure how many of you saw the FOX 9 special report tonight, but it was one that paints one Twin Cities doggy daycare in a bad light. Trycia and I were watching the story and I think my jaw was dropped the entire time it was on!  I was shocked and could not believe what I saw and heard!!   I don't want you guys to assume that every daycare in the Twin Cities is operated like that one and there are many that are well run (like the PPP). If you want to watch the story, you can click here. Over the past 2 months, we have teamed up with 2 of the other premier doggy daycares in the area to create the Twin Cities Dog Daycare Association, which helps to set standards of care, staffing and other ways of running the business.  We hurried and launched this site today before the story aired to help educate dog owners on how to pick a quality dog daycare and what questions should be asked when you first visit.

As always, if you ever have any questions, comments or concerns please drop me an email (or better yet, call my cell phone 651-238-7673... How many daycare owners give out their personal cell phone number??).

Have a good night, and please feel free to contact me personally with any questions you might have.

FOX 9 News

FOX 9 was doing a live shot from the doggy daycare today to help promote the Woof-n-Treat doggy halloween party.  They were live for 4 hours today, and Ellen our manager was featured on the last break!  Way to go Ellen and it was so much fun seeing so many of our dogs in costumes! Have a good night.

Windy, Chilly.. Welcome to Fall

Schatzie at doggy Daycare Brrr.. It is finally October, I just checked the weather and it should be a great weekend for our doggy halloween party!  Today, when our employees got to the doggy daycare called me right away to say that one of the fence panels in our outside area had blown down.  I instantally called our fence company, and within 1 hour they were out getting everything fixed.  With almost 60 MPH winds (which are hurricane strength), I am glad that it was the only damage.  Many of our customers came in talking about how they did not have power!  So that was the big excitement at the PPP today!

Oh, I need to post a picture of one of the funniest costumes that we were working on today!  Simon the bulldog will be a star on the FOX 9 news this Friday and we were perfecting his costume.  I don't want to ruin the surprise, so stay tuned for a picture soon.

Hope you have a good night!
