Hogan

hogan the dog daycare dogToday Hogan took a few minutes from playing with all the dogs to take a picture in the "castle".  Hogan has been boarding with us for about a week and he really enjoys dog daycare!  Hogan does great with the big and small dogs and gets really excited when Trycia enters the room. Looking for training?  Heather has a bunch of classes starting next week.  Details are on the dog training page.

Have a good night!

One FULL hotel

Yesterday (Thanksgiving), I went to work to check on everything and make sure everything was running smooth, which it was.  Our hotel is full and they were so behaved yesterday and had tuns of fun playing on Thanksgiving.   I spent about 6 hours with the dogs yesterday and enjoyed every minute of it, and I know that the dogs did as well.  On the holidays, we are closed for drop off and pick up, but for the dogs staying over it is just a regular day of play.  Many other boarding places in the Twin Cities have ver limited play hours on holidays, and we did not think this was fair for the dogs (or the customers, since you are paying for it).  We would much rather pay our staff a little more, and make it a regular day for the dogs.  Yesterday,  Ash, one of our managers brought out the bubbles and Jackaroo really got into the fun!  Watch the video below.

Happy 13th Birthday!

photoA HUGE birthday shout out to Bigsby who just turned 13 today!  Bigsby comes to dog daycare almost every day and he always hangs out in the small dog room.  Bigsby might be 13 but he is young at hart and prances back to the playroom every morning.  He is such a sweet dog!  We know that he will love the new room that we are building which should be done in a few weeks. Speaking of the new room, I put fresh paint on the walls today and everything keeps moving forward.  If all goes well, things should be done in about 2 weeks.  Keep stopping back for updates :)

Have a good night.

Help us out.... Win Dog Day Care!!

This weekend we are starting the construction on our new play area and we just realized we should name each of the rooms.  Right now we call them the "front" and the "back".  How lame is that??  The worst part is that the front is not even in the front!!  We want you to help name the rooms for us!  If you come up with the winning name, for a room, you will get a free day of dog daycare for your pooch.  Just email mailto:keith@pamperedpoochplayground.com?subject=Room Names with your names.  You can name 1 room or all 3. Here is a description of each of the rooms:

1- "Front" play room - This is where the wild big dogs go.  They love to play, and play hard!  The room is about 3,500 sqft!

2- "Back" play room - This is the more laid back group of dogs.  They love to play but they also love to have some down time.  This is where all the small dogs and the mellow big guys go.  After the construction, this room will be about 2,500 sqft.

3 - "the new room" - This room is designed for the older guys where they just want to relax and hang out.  They will play, but also love some down time and lots of attention.  There will be plenty of beds and possibly a TV.  Some of the little guys can also go into this room. This Room will be about 2,000 sqft.

Have fun and the contest will end Wednesday night.
