Thank You, Customers!

For your patience during these past 2 weeks when we had to modify our daycare headcounts due to the dogs staying with us for Spring break. We run very tight dog-human ratios for safety, and we can only admit so many dogs to play. There are a few times of year (such as Thanksgiving week and Christmas-New Year’s) when we know in advance what the boarding headcounts will be and we can alert all of our daycare customers well ahead of time. But Spring break was not as predictable. It’s not a national holiday and not everyone had the same vacation weeks off. So thank you for your understanding and cooperation!  ~Amy



Spring break overnights! If you’re getting a break from the winter that won’t end and planning a trip out of town, remember to get your reservation in early for your dog’s overnight stay. And if you’ll be coming to Metro Dogs for the first time, we suggest you plan now to get a fecal test done if your vet doesn’t have a recent one on record. That way you won’t be scrambling as reservations get tight. All overnight reservations are just $39 a night and include daycare group play, any size kennel, and personal visits and/or head scratches from Allison or me!  ~Amy


Cute Puppies Here!

We love to welcome new puppies, like Milo here, and we want you to know what safety precautions we take.

Your puppy needs to have had its first visit with a veterinarian and been vaccinated for Bordetella and Distemper.  You should be aware of when your booster dates are coming up and when you’re scheduled to get the Rabies vaccination…generally by 4 months. On your first visit to Metro Dogs you’ll meet with one of our trainers for a few minutes before you head off to work or your errands. Very young puppies will stay up front with the humans in our gated lobby area reserved for the little ones. When we think puppy is ready, which may not be on the first day, she’ll be taken to the Tiny Tots play room and introduced to lots of new friends. If we think puppy’s not quite ready for the puppy mob, we might bring a few youngsters up front to play with him in his smaller space. We take whatever steps we think will acclimate puppy in a safe way that won’t be frightening or stressful.  And there’s lots more. Please call us to discuss your puppy’s specific needs. We want to help you raise a healthy, happy puppy!  ~Amy
