August is almost here, which means summer is almost over. It has been hot and muggy (and just a bit rainy) like every Maryland summer, but this one seems to have blown by at an unusual speed. Before you know it, school will start up again, the leaves will change colors, and we will be longing for when the temperature was above 60°.
We hope that you are enjoying our new reservation system! We are still working out some kinks to make it the most user-friendly it can be. If you ever have questions about it, please give us a call or email us. You may have noticed a few emails from us regarding missing vaccines, upcoming appointments, birthday wishes etc., and we are still fine-tuning those automated emails. If you receive an email regarding missing or expired vaccines, that does not necessarily mean they are missing or expired. The system sends out the email a month before the vaccine expires, so that if you do have an upcoming appointment, you have enough time to get that vaccine updated and don’t have to worry about it last minute. We have also been sending out birthday wishes to your lovely pets in which the email states your pup gets a free day of doggy daycare on us! No need to make a reservation for it, just show us the email when you drop off and we will apply the birthday coupon.
As summer winds down and you try to fit in one more getaway weekend, make sure to reserve a spot for your pet, as we are filling up fast for the last couple weekends of summer. And as they say, its never too early to start thinking about the holidays. Plan your trips now and reserve your pet’s spot as soon as possible for the upcoming holidays; we fill up faster than you’d think!
Speaking of holidays, the Fall Jewish High Holy Days are a little earlier than usual this year. We will be closed 9/10, 11, 19, 24 and 10/1. We will have limited hours of 9-11am and 5-7pm with no daycare on Sept 25th and Oct 2nd. As always, thank you for your patience during these observances. Our staff will be here taking care of all our guests just like every other day, but we will not answer the phones, email or check anyone in/out.
It is with a bit of sadness and pride that we are saying goodbye to Sarah, a longtime member of our team. You probably know Sarah for her stylish glasses, office phone on her hip, and a leash over her shoulders. Sarah had worked with us for almost 2 and half years. Our staff and guests are going to miss having her calm and positive attitude radiating on the grounds.
Our new hire, Nicole, is getting a feel for things around the yards and runs. Make sure to say hi to Nicole and her adorable puppy, Wally.
We hope you and your loved ones enjoy the last dog days of summer and enjoy every bit of sunshine you can!
