Springtime has come to Colorado, and we have a fun grooming special to celebrate it. Come in for grooming with Maryssa and receive a free half-day of daycare or a free night of boarding. Maryssa has received many compliments from her clients for the time and care she gives each dog. She is very gentle and treats our furry friends with patience and compassion. Give us a call to take advantage of this special at (303) 770-0776, and Happy Spring from your friends at Dogtopia!
We’re sending out a great, big, barkin’ thanks to our awesome customers for helping us with our Lucky Dog promotion this past week! We raised $400 which we’ll split between the biggies and the littles: we’re working with Mile High Weimaraner Rescue and Colorado Pug Rescue so each organization will recieve $200 from all of you! Our customers are really our greatest resource, and we truly consider you our friends. Thank you for all you do to improve the lives of these rescue animals, and we consider it an honor to take care of your furry, loved ones!
Make a grooming appointment with our groomer, Teesha, and you’ll receive a free night of boarding! This works out great if you already plan on boarding with us, because you can get your furry friend looking all spiffy while you receive a free night! Also, if you groom with us already, it’s a great way to try out our boarding. This special runs through February so make your appointment today at (303) 770-0776.
We had a very successful Meetup last month with almost 75 people in attendance! The best news was Missy, a Pug, met her forever family at the event, and she was adopted! We will host another Pug and Boston Terrier Meetup on January 9th from 3:00-5:00 pm at Dogtopia of Highlands Ranch. There will be foster dogs from the Colorado Pug Rescue and MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue Organizations, and we’ll have the Meetup play groups there too. Bring your Pug or Boston, and hang out with a bunch of friends. It’s fun, and it’s free!
Dogtopia will host a Pug and Boston Meetup this weekend at our location: 6448 E. County Line Road in Highlands Ranch. We will get together at 3:00 pm, and the event lasts until 5:00 pm. Colorado Pug Rescue will be at the event and will bring foster dogs! If you ever considered rescuing a cute, ‘lil puggie, this would be a perfect opportunity to see several foster dogs at once!! There will be a Bake Sale to benefit the rescue, and all are welcome. Call Dogtopia with any questions: (303) 770-0776.

If you find yourself running around Chatfield or the dog park, you might need a nice, refreshing dog bath for your best buddy. We’re wrapping up a Spring Cleaning Special where we’ll bathe (and clean up afterward) your big dog for $18 (regularly $25) or your little dog for $15 (regularly $20). Enjoy this wonderful weather and don’t worry about the mess from playing in it! Stop by on your way home from your outdoor activities or schedule a time at (303) 770-0776. Special ends June 15th.
P.S. You can also have your dog bathed while at daycare/boarding so you can just pick him/her up fresh and clean at the end of the day!
We have a fabulous new trainer, Troy, from Guy and a Leash Pet Services. Here is his website: http://www.guyandaleash.com/
I tried his class with my two pugs who have never had prior training, and I was very impressed with the result. Charlie, my dignified, stubborn one, was the “tough sell” but, once he caught on to the technique, he’s been a model student. Otis, my sweet, ‘lil rescue guy, caught on immediately and went to the top of the class. Troy gave us homework to practice what we learned in class, and I’m looking forward to building on our initial success. His training consists of all positive techniques which are a “must” for me both in philosophy and given the fact that pugs don’t respond to anything but a positive approach. Several staff members were in our class, too. They all have big dogs who were very responsive to the training and seemed to enjoy the lesson.
The best part of the whole training experience was the agility class with the obstacle course that Troy hosted later in the day. Who knew a pug was so agile?! Charlie, who never met a challenge he didn’t fully embrace, flew through the beginner course and moved on to the experienced side of the field in no time whereas my sweet Otis decided he made a good spectator. It was the most fun I’ve had in a long time, and the pugs were completely worn out afterward like they had worked hard for their rest. I noticed all the dogs worked really hard on the course like they were doing their job as a dog!
If you’ve ever considered obedience and/or agility training, you might want to give Troy a call at (303) 521-7605. It’s certainly been an unforgettable experience for Charlie, Otis, and me!
