Daycare Pet Projects – January 2016

Everyday in Daycare our staff set aside quality time to work with our doggy clients 1 on 1, teaching them or brushing up on some really fun tricks! We teach Sit, Come, Stay or something a little bit more fun like Crawl, Spin, High 5, Secrets, etc.

We also teach some really great games that dogs LOVE such as Fetch & The Sniffing Game! This is everyone’s favourite part of the day and our TPSB staff get so much enjoyment from interacting with your dog and watching him/her learn and practice new skills. We are very proud of our Pet Project Program here at The Pet Shop Boys. This program has been implemented to provide mental stimulation, stress/anxiety relief, education training and of course to have a ton of fun!!!

We teach Sit, Come, Stay or something a little bit more fun like Crawl, Spin, High 5, Touch, Under/Over Logs, including some fun agility lessons too!

Daycare – January 25 to 29, 2016

Daycare Diary

January 25 – Within the first hour of our morning there were already four awesome play pairs ready for their day in daycare. The pairs consist of: Addie and Tegan, Eddie and Sydney, Zeppelin and Frodo, and lastly Rex and Emma, who were both hesitant coming into daycare without their parents. It’s a good thing that they both have each other. Berkley had so many friends in daycare today the he had the hardest time decided on who he should greet first, so they all swarmed in in one go. He and Tegan spent most of the afternoon tumbling around the pen together. The two of them had so much fun together that Addie and Lola started to feel a bit jealous. Eventually they joined in, so all four pups formed a big play group until it was time for the next walk. Great teamwork guys!

January 26 – Rusty is very concern about the amount of rain we are having today. He is worried that the puddles might be too deep for him and the other small dogs like Ginger, Mia, and Charlie. Rex showed the little ones how to doggy paddle their way out of trouble if they find themselves swimming in puddles during their walks. But the dogs shouldn’t fear because Brewster the hero dog was here to save dogs in need of help. Shiloh needed some help with her sore wrist, Ollie needed help with brushing the fur on his belly, and Bailey needed help opening a door. Unfortunately, our hero, Brewster, was too busy playing with Tegan and Chamaco to help, so the daycare Tutors play hero for the time being.

January 27 – This morning was full of new friends in daycare, we welcome Stanley the Puggle and Toby the young and curious Maltese. Stanley has already stolen the hearts of our Tutors while Toby has became best friends with little Ella. Mia was thrilled to see more dogs her size in daycare, she was hoping for another small female to share clothes with, but Toby will work just fine. By lunch time, the rain began to fall from the clouds and neither Gorgina or Pepper were ready to get wet and muddy. But other dogs like Lola and Berkley took on the challenge and went on their afternoon walk with Addie and Dior. Oscar was thrilled to get some snuggle time in with Petunia and Finchley, this was his first time meeting them and Oscar couldn’t believe how welcoming all the daycare dogs were. Today was a great day for everyone.

January 28 – Berkley showed up early to daycare this morning, getting to spend some down time with Miss Sophie. That was until Tegan and Frankie showed up! The three of them caused a whirl wind of energy, taking up the entire back pen in a serious game of tag. Cali had tried her best to join in but the three of them were too much, even for her. Instead Cali and Rex waited patiently for their turn to play. Millie (Vizla) was super interested in Ocho and she continued to pester him to play with her. All Ocho wanted to do is lay in the hot sun with his pals Mia, Stevie and Chloe. Later on, Ocho decided he was interested in Ambba even though she was playing hard to get. Good thing Millie found other dogs to keep her company, she would have been so jealous. Ocho is quite the heartbreaker!

January 29 – It was a dreary, rainy day outside this Friday but that didn’t matter to any of our pups here at TPSB. The back pen was pretty rowdy, and not just because Rowdy was in today! Rooney, Teagan, Buddy and Lucy the miniature Aussie all took turns playing with one another and trying to lure Bo out of her sleepy corner. Meanwhile, in the middle pen Bella and McDuffy were on the prowl for love and cuddles. LaFawnda spent some time lounging in full view of everyone else, maybe she was trying to show off her beautiful coat? It’s hard to look that fabulous in this damp weather, well done LaFawnda!

Daycare – January 18 to 22, 2016

Daycare Diary

January 18 – Being the first two dogs in daycare, Addie and Ella had this time to share secrets and use the whole daycare space for whatever they wished. Joey, who was the third dog to arrive to daycare, woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. So Joey decided to have a lazy Monday and watch the girls run laps in the pens. The afternoon brought much excitement especially with dogs like Berkley, Chamaco and his best friend Lola. The two fought for Chamaco’s attention and he had the hardest time deciding on who he should play with. Being the gentleman that Chamaco is, he took turns with both and it became a very confusing game for the dogs and the tutors. But everything worked out and no dog was left behind.

January 19 – Today marks the triumphant return of sisters and best friends, Gabby and Zoe. It’s been a few weeks since we saw these two lovely ladies in daycare, but they got right back into the swing of things as if they had never left. The wheatons Ruby and Buddy spent the morning together in a cozy little corner keeping each other company, while Jessie and Jamie spent some quality time with Sophie. Ebony shared her favourite spot with her pal Shea, what an honour! Everyone was a bit sleepy this morning until Lana showed up and stirred the pot. She, Gabby and Annie made fast friends and had no trouble at all keeping daycare lively. Thanks ladies!

January 20 – None of the dogs wanted to play with their friends before our morning walks. It was clear that they needed to stretch their legs and wake up a bit more before they could start their day. When the walks were finished, the dogs were ready for some fun and Eddie and Ocho showed how it was done. Molly and Jackson followed their ways and played until Tutor Daniel announced that he had treats for best play pairs in daycare. With all excitement the dogs, grabbed their partners and commenced playing to earn themselves a treat. Little Stevie paired up with Baxter, she had never seen such a fluffy dog and she was mesmerized by his smooth moves. Dior wanted to pair with Stanley but he had an appointment at the spa and had to leave her to buddy up with Maisie. Little did Dior know that Maisie has always wanted to play with Dior but was a little intimidated to ask, but now this was Maisie’s chance to make a daycare gal pal.

January 21 – The rain was back in full force this morning, but the Doodle Club held a meeting in the big pen with Emma, Gabby, Zoe and Zeppelin. The club came to an agreement that they would not let the rain ruin their day, and so they ran around the room like it was a mid summer afternoon. Emma the black lab discovered that she wasn’t the only Emma in daycare today and decided they would be best friends. The Emma’s showed everyone else how it’s done! Amidst all the noise and fun, Bailey the Frenchie needed to catch up on some beauty sleep so he snored away in his favourite crate until it was time to go for a walk. The Duchess Sophie had the same idea, as if she could get any more beautiful! Being the gracious and gentle soul that she is, Sophie shared her fluffy mat with her pal Ollie and the two of them supervised the other pups running around them.

January 22 – Tegan “wowed” the daycare pack this morning with her new groom cut. She marched in ready for the day and excited to see her good friends Ella and Brewster. Little did she know that her buddy Berkley was also expecting to attended daycare today and when he arrived it was an instant all day play challenge. Bailey didn’t want to surround himself with all that young dog rowdiness so he decided he wanted to hang out with Sophie and the other older dogs. Toby also came into daycare with a fresh new groom however he was too shy to show off like Tegan. Everyone secretly thought he looked really handsome!
