Muddy Paws Party

Food for the Pet Project in MinneapolisLast night Tami, our groomer and owner of Muddy Paws Cheesecake Co. put me to work at her 19th annual Holiday Bazaar. They were collecting toys for STEP and dog food for The Pet Project.  They filled 3 HUGE boxes with goodies!!  Lenore (one of our PPP staff members) and I were working at the door taking in all of the donations and it was great to see so many people giving back!!  What a great event!  I went home stuffed full of some of the worlds best cheesecake!  

Have a good night!



PPP staff night out

cheesecake night at Muddy Paws in St. Louis ParkEvery few months we try to take our staff out to thank them for their hard work.  This time we took them to Muddy Paws Cheesecake (which is owned by Tami our groomer).  Each person could bring their own ingredients to add to the batter, or you could use some of the items Tami had.  I decided to live on the edge and mix marsh mellow with nerds... Hopefully it turns out well (the cakes are in the oven now and we get them on Tuesday).  We did this same outing last winter and it was a great time and everyone had fun!  I know I always say this, but I really believe that we have the best crew around! Have a great night!


Cheesecake Fun

minneapolis,mn dog event Last night we were at the Muddy Paws cheesecake sampling and holiday bazaar in St Louis Park.  What a turnout, it was wonderful to see so many of our customers enjoying what might be the worlds best cheesecake!

At the daycare, you might have noticed that we keep moving the doggy daycare  webcams in Waggers Way.  Since we decided that this room works best as one LARGE room (about 4200 sqft), rather than 2 small ones, we are trying to position the cameras so you can see everything.  We are not 100% there, but are getting close and it is on the top of my list of things to do today!

Have a great day!


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!



Say hello to Chester, a White German Shepard.  Chester is a big fan of doggy daycare and enjoys hanging out in the Ruff House while at dog daycare. Last night we took our staff to Muddy Paws Cheesecake (Tami, one of our groomers owns it), for a fun night out.  Everyone got to make their own cheese cake.  Just wait until you heard what flavor I made.  I will tell you if it was any good after I taste it tomorrow.  It was a fun time and all of our staff really enjoyed it!

Have a good night.
