We've got some great new pictures of our Austin Dog Daycare dogs playing in doggy daycare while their owners are at work. I've posted a few here, but you can see more of them on our Austin Dog Daycare website at: https://www.buddyschance.com
We've been working hard over the last few weeks to complete the expansion of our Austin Dog Training and Dog Daycare/Boarding facility. The new kennel room, designed to help the dogs have a more relaxing stay, is now complete and the dogs moved into it today. The new Austin dog daycare playroom is almost painted, the floors are complete, and we're busy assembling the small play areas that will line the large play area in the middle. This new set up will let us break off small play groups tailored to each dog's needs and play style on a particular day, keeping play groups personalized and small.
A few more days and he change over to the new play area will be complete. We can't wait to show the new space off to all of our clients and their four-legged friends!
We're excited to announce that we are expanding our Austin dog boarding and dog daycare next month, just in time for the holidays! Now, for all of our clients who love the small nature of our boarding facility, don't panic just yet. We're going from a facility that houses 10 dogs to one that houses 15, so the personalized nature of our Austin dog boarding and dog daycare won't change!
In mid to late October, we will be breaking through the wall of our existing Austin Dog Training Center, to create a new open air playroom for the dogs. The room will be open on one side to allow in fresh air for the dogs but still be covered and closed on three sides to protect from the hot Texas sun! We will be splitting this space into 3-4 play areas so that we can continue our tradition of splitting play groups into small groups of dogs that are carefully matched by play style and temperament. As dogs play, they sometimes become cranky and begin to have trouble with one dog or another in their play group. With our multiple play area approach, we can rotate dogs into different play areas as this happens or even give them a little one-on-one break in a play yard by themselves to give them a breather when they need one!
The new play area will let us take on more dogs just in time for Thanksgiving, which is good news since we're booking for Thanksgiving already! It will also let us go back to doing dog daycare full time, giving clients the option of one to five days per week for Austin dog daycare!
Other pluses: the new play area will have drains built right into the floor, making sanitizing the floors a breeze (a KEY to running our Austin dog boarding and dog daycare facility safely). And, because we'll now have 3-4 play areas instead of one play room, we'll be able to give the dogs even more play time because we can have multiple play groups out at one time. We'll keep you guys posted on our progress as the build-out begins!
It seems each building project at our Austin dog training center takes about 5 more trips to Home Depot then I think they will! We're busy building our luxury dog boarding suites for our Austin boarding dogs so they have room to stretch their legs and board in style. So far, we've made 3 trips to Home Depot and I'm headed back for more. The suites are looking good though! They're about 6.5 x 5 feet big - much bigger than you'd find at a regular dog kennel. Cushy digs for our spoiled dogs! I'll try to do a 360 degree video when we're done building them - I'll have to see how talented I can get with the camera;-)
