Dog days of summer

It is now August 1st. Summer is flying by and we only have one more month to fit all the fun. Our doggie friends at daycare sure have enjoyed their summer so far. Let the good times roll and let summer last forever!

Boarding, not just for dogs

We, here at Stay & Play, realize that there are some families that have more then just a dog in their home. Our facility also has space for not only dogs but for other pets aswell. Cats stay in a separate room so they don't have to feel the extra stress from being around the dogs. Here are some cats that have stayed with us in the past.

We have also gotten some Bunnies to spend a few nights too. You can bring thier own cage or we can set them up with one of our own.

Splish Splash we are taking a bath

Some extra services that Stay & Play can provide are baths, ear cleaning, and nail trimming. This doggie daycare client got sap stuck to her fur when she was home and she was hoping we could help her remove it. A little trick with dealing with sap on fur is to use oils to loosen the sap off. You can use olive oil, mineral oil or even smooth peanut butter. You just want to make sure you use an oil that isn't harmful if digested since many dogs will try to lick at the spot. Once you let the oil sit for a few minutes you can start working it out with your fingers or a flea comb. This little lab was a very good girl and together we were able to get most of the sap off of her. She also liked the added bonus of getting to lick off some peanut butter herself.

4th of July Weekend

As we all know, Independence Day is the day we commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence which was signed 241 years ago on July 4, 1776. Everyone loves to have bar-b-ques, spend the day with family and gaze at the night sky during a fireworks filled night. Just remember that not all animals enjoy fireworks and loud noises that they can bring. Secure your pet in a safe area or make sure that someone is able to watch them if they get stressed out. 

Doggie Daycare will be closed for July 4th.
Boarding will still be open but will have limited pickup and drop off times: 8-11am and 4-6pm.

Everyone be safe and enjoy your holiday!

Summer has officially begun

Today marks the Summer Solstice on our calendars. Time to finalize our vacation plans and load up on sunscreen. Remember to keep pets cool while outside on hot days. Some dogs love to play in plastic kiddie pools, it's not only fun to watch them play but it is also a great way for them to cool off.

Here are a few images of the dogs at Doggie Daycare and Boarding having fun in the sun!

Start of Summer

Summer has begun and be sure to think about your pet when making those much needed vacation plans. Here at Stay & Play dogs get to enjoy being out in the sun too. We all want to bring our pets with us on our travels but sometimes it just isn't possible. Relax in knowing that the staff here will love and care for you pet just as much as you do! Call and make a reservation today to make sure that your pet is all set and ready for his/her own vacation.

Choices Choices

Sometimes you think you have the better toy and then someone comes along with something even better. But at least he is a good friend and will share with you. 

Riddle me this

Looks like some of the daycare dogs weren't amused by my dog jokes I told them today. 

Fun fact: Basenji, which is a breed that originated from the Congo, is known as the bark-less dog. Despite it not being able to vocalize like other dogs he still makes himself heard with yodels and song. 

Summer time weather

The pool is the best way to beat the heat on those hot days, like it was last week. Captain is enjoy his swim as Savannah stands as life guard. Remember that it is always safer to swim with a friend.

April Showers Bring May Flowers

 
 

Misty is happy to wish everyone a magnifi-scent May. Misty enjoys going on walks and having the breeze flow through her mane while she stays overnight in buddy boarding. Its a great way to relax and stretch her little legs. 

Throwing it back on Thursday

This game I love, and this game is called fetch.
When she throws it high I leap and I catch.
She knows I'm ready for another when I drop it and stare.
Again it flies and again I dare.
Again and again, another and another.
She loves me and that's why I love her.
