 A Personal Note from Cheryl

Hello ...  

September has come to an end, and so has our warmer weather.  The breezy days always speak to me of the 'winds of change'.  For many of you this is a the new year... a time for celebration with family.  For others, it's work in a new career, or a new year of studying with new peers and new things to learn.

I am reminded of how change is so good for us!  When we change seasons, it gives a fresh breath into our days, with new projects to plan for.  When we stretch outside of our comfort zone and try new things, we discover so much more that this world has to offer us.  When we embrace the experiences life has to offer, we learn about how we can show up differently, often times by helping others and making a real impact in other beings' lives.  Consequently we become changed ourselves.  All of this is good!  

I have been fortunate to have been present to the growth of so many others, both human and canine. It's obvious to many how healing it is to be around animals... we see that constantly through our volunteer program, but what may not be so obvious from the outside, is how healing it is for dogs to be around other dogs.  
Now I know you love that we're Completely Cagefree™ and that's why you bring your pup to us, however you may not really 'get it' the amazing transformations we see in dogs, and in their families, simply by having their dogs in a cagefree environment with other dogs.   Dogs get to be dogs... they start to remember, and get to regularly experience who and what they are, and as a result, they become far less demanding on their human families.  
This is why we decided to bring to you our October Offer... a promotion you can read about further on.  We want you (and your dogs) to enjoy all the benefits of daycare as often as you can, so we've provided you with a way to do just that.   
To help you see all the fun your dogs have at daycare, we've pulled together some great clips of them playing, and made a really FUN music montage just for you.  (You just might see your own dog in there... take a look!)

Client Spotlight  

I've been bringing my 18 month old German Shepherd Dog, Sam, to Holiday Pet Care for daycare since the winter of 2010/2011 and we've had a wonderfully positive experience.

All of the staff are very friendly and have developed their own relationship with each of the pets they care for.  I know my pet is in great hands while I'm away.  The staff to animal ratio is great and you can tell that attention is paid through the day when you pick up your dog and they tell you stories of the dogs playing through the day.

The facilities are clean and rather spacious for an urban setting. I can also rest assured that my pup will have a great time at daycare and will come home tuckered out after a fun day of play with his dog buddies. 

I highly recommend you book your dog in for an assessment and tour the facilities to see for yourself!
