Pandemic Notice, We're back to our regular schedule with kennel drop off & pick up.
This summer has proven to be very challenging, simply, because we've added so many new client dogs who came to board with us. This has caused some issues with our regular daycare clients. These clients bring their dogs here 3-5 times per week and we have had no availability to them because of boarding capacity. After much discussion, we have decided that effective immediately, we will only be boarding our regular client’s dogs. This is OUR definition of a regular client: One whose dog attends daycare here at least 2 times a month for 3 months prior to their boarding date or has boarded with us at least 5 times in the previous 12 months. We will look at specific cases, depending on the dog, to see if this time frame could be shortened. We want a longer history with boarding dogs because we want to be comfortable with dogs who come here and in return have them comfortable coming here. We will be cutting back, incrementally, on our number of boarding spaces as well. Effective November 1st, we will be boarding 10 dogs maximum, down from the current 15 and then eventually we will cut it back to a maximum of 5 in 2022. Next year, we'll only be offering boarding over March break, from Canada Day to Labour Day and over Christmas. Again, these boarding spaces will only be available to regular clients. Depending on our daycare needs, a maximum of 5 boarding spots will be available during these allotted times. The downsizing in numbers and limited boarding days should allow our daycare clients to be able to count on much needed spots for their dogs, as so many people are now headed back to work. Outside of the times listed above, we will only be a daycare. We understand a special situation could arise and we will review it on case-by-case basis. We know this will no doubt cause some hardship for some current clients and for that we do apologize. However, this always was a retirement gig and to say it got a wee bit out of hand is an understatement. It is getting to the point where we need to make a better work and life balance, also what is in our best interest mentally and physically. Obviously, we will not be taking on any new clients who are just looking for boarding going forward. Our goal, ultimately, will be to provide daycare only operations in the coming years.
