A Great Donation

custom dog beds in MinneapolisToday, Trycia and I were standing in the lobby at the doggy daycare, and this lady walked in with a a bunch of Blankets to donate to the Great Minnesota Pet Food Drive sponsored by The Twin Cities Dog Daycare Association!  Each one was hand made and she just started a company to custom make them for people.  . If you would like a custom dog Blanket you can email Kristine  at We did have a few people eye the Green Bay Packers Blanket (so we have it under lock and key). The pet food drive is going amazing.  Thanks to our wonderful customers we have collected over 1500 pounds of food!  If you have not donated yet, you can do it on our website by clicking here or in our lobby!

Have a great night!

Pet Food Drive Update

As many of you know, we are part of the Twin Cities Dog Daycare Association, and all the doggy daycares have teamed up in a friendly competition to see who can collect the most food and money for local rescues.  Today, KARE 11 invited the group on the air to talk about the food drive.  Ann from Downtown Dogs was the spokesperson for the group of doggy daycares.  All the doggy daycares mentioned are part of the group, and I am sp proud to call the other owners "Friends".  All of us get along great and put the needs of the dogs in our care ahead of everything else. As a random note, I was just off camera in the interview and I also set up the table with the toys and treats! If you missed the interview, you can watch it below.   You can learn more and donate to the Great Minnesota Pet Food Drive online by clicking here.  

2012 Pet Food Drive

This past Thursday we kicked off the first annual Twin Cities Dog Daycare Association's "Great Minnesota Pet Food Drive".  I am so honored to work with such a great group of doggy daycares and raise food and money for local pet rescues.  We have turned this into a friendly competition to see which dog daycare can collect the most food and money and we need your support!  You can donate in our lobby or online by clicking here.  We have some great incentives for anyone that donates including free doggy daycare and $5 off at Bubbly Paws. Thanks so much for helping us help pets in need this holiday season!




Nap time on the new bed

Ember and Weenie love the new red beds that we just picked up.  Both dogs come for doggie daycare 3 times a week and love spending some time on the bed together. Some great news from the weekend events.  The food drive we did for the Pet Project raised over 10,000 pounds of food and over $800 in cash.  The Minnesota boxer rescue raised $1000.  We were so proud to be part of both events, and are amazed with the turnout!  If you want to see some of the pictures, Modern Life Photo put them on their blog.

This wednesday, MA Rosco from the FOX 9 morning news will air her feature on DOGA which was shot at Pampered Pooch Playground.  Don't worry, if you can't watch it, we will have all the clips on our website.  Speaking of Doga, the next session is this Saturday morning, details are on our events page.
