July 2019

Summer = Busy Season – Summer is a very busy time for us and we would like to ask you to please request your doggie daycare and dog/cat boarding reservations well in advance for any time from July to September. Our summer daycare/boarding space books up well in advance. Please anticipate we may not be able to accommodate last minute requests. We have a cancellation list that we can add your name to.

Our grooming shop is also booked for the majority of the summer. We encourage everyone that while your pet is visiting for grooming to book your next two appointments in advance to get the dates you want!

Civic Holiday – We are closed to the public on Monday, August 5 for the Civic Holiday. We are close to boarding capacity for that weekend (as of July 1) so if you would like to board your dog at any time from August 2 to 7 please make your reservation requests now.

Charity Dog Wash – Mark this date in your calendar for our 5th annual Charity Dog Wash on Saturday, August 10 from 11am to 2pm! Bring your pup in and for a $30 minimum cash donation he/she will be pampered with an all-natural shampoo, towel dry and nail trim!

Proceeds are going to Finding Them Homes rescue (www.findingthemhomes.com) who will have an amazing swag tent for you to shop while you wait! You can also meet and greet some of their adoptable dogs!

We are very excited that Global Pet Foods will be joining us too with their booth full of awesome goodies!

Mark These Dates In Your Calendar – Please mark these dates in your calendars that we will have limited services or will be closed to the public. We will remind you of these dates in each monthly newsletter:
