Howdy, Dog Lovers!
It's a fact: Many people at other pet care facilities feel guilty about leaving their dogs in a kennel. Not you guys. You're different. You get the value we provide and the level of care we give to you and your dog. Take Tank here. He's still working on his arousal level with other dogs (He's very excited!!). So we give him short bursts of supervised play, tons of staff time, solo hikes and nightly tuck-ins to make his stay extra special. What a good boy! Tank's mom and dad know to reserve early for holiday stays. Have you already reserved your 2020 holidays? If not, let's take care of that now, shall we?
In this issue...we celebrate the beginning of our 25th year in business, share a video that tells the story of how we got started, and share some of the things we're doing now to improve your pups' visits with us. We've also listed our upcoming training classes for those of you who like to plan ahead. Let's get to it!
Celebrating 25 Years!

Can you believe it's been 25 years? How time flies when you're loving dogs for a living! If you haven't watched it yet, you should see DogBoy & Doggirl tell their Origin Story. It really explains why we're so different from other pet care facilities, and why that matters. You can watch the video here.

THANK YOU for 25 years of awesome dogs! We couldn't have done it without you! Our mission is to improve your dogs' lives and inspire the people who love them. We do that by customizing each dog's visit, and telling the world about the importance of positive reinforcement (R+) training, spay/neuter awareness, and promoting healthy diets. All these years later, we couldn't be more proud of what we've built. We look forward to caring for your pets for many years to come!
DogBoy’s Care Plans

No one knows your dog like you do. We want our entire staff to know all the little things that can affect your pup's stay with us, so we've recently started customizing care plans for dogs with special needs. A care plan is a specialized plan that was recently created at DogBoy's, so that the specific needs of that dog stand out while they are boarding with us.

Take Pasha for example, pictured here. This sweet girl has boarded with us for over 12 of her 14 years with very special instructions. She is not to be touched. That's right...ever. She only trusts the touch of her owners. And since those instructions need to be very clear to each and every employee here, we created a care plan for her boarding stays so that everyone knows what to do and how.

It's all these little details that give Pasha's mom the peace of mind that we are taking great care of her fur baby so she can travel worry free!

Our long term goal is to have care plans for all boarding dogs. This extra service is included in our nightly boarding rate, so any dog can have one if needed. It's just one more way we are going above and beyond for the pups in our care.

Pasha's Care Plan includes specific details about her check-in process, how to move her in and out of her kennel, rest requirements and her departure process.

She's a very special girl, who deserves extra special care!
