Oh lookโ€”muuuuud!

Hello, Pet Parents!sept2016-image

Itโ€™s no secret that our top priorities in visiting your furry family are that they are loved, very well cared for, and enjoy all aspects of their visits immensely.

With summer changing to fall and fall into winter, pups have some new and rather exciting opportunities while walking. Mud? What mud!? Which puddle should I walk through vs. sit in? Should I dry my fur on the couch or your bed? My parent(s) think my paws, which look just like these prints, are totally cute…right? #mylifeisruff #Ineedanap

While we canโ€™t discourage ALL fun on walks, we do promise to keep any mess outdoors!

Helpful Tidbits:

  1. Towels are awesome: leaving one by the door is helpful for paw cleaning
  2. Paw wipes: a fancier version of a towel and great for making sure paws are really clean
  3. Soapy water spray bottle: another great trick is a spray bottle filled with soapy water. This combined with a towel is also a great combo.

Finally, with changes in seasons often come modified routines for fur-kids. Please keep us pup-dated in the office if you’d like to make adjustments to your pup’s routine. This will help us ensure that our team of Pet Sitters are all well informed regarding any new visit details.
