I promise it’s not as nefarious as you may be thinking!
Most of you know the doggy schedule at Dogtopia of Tysons Corner. it’s very much like one a child’s daycare might have – our General Manager Joye often jokes that dog daycare is like a roomful of three year olds with teeth and claws.
We have open play, outdoor time and naptime. On many occasions I’ve had parents ask me if the dogs actually sleep at naptime. Some do. Puppies in particular conk right out. Older dogs like the break from all the hub bub. Adolescents, a 2 year old Chocolate Lab for instance, will simply sit in the homestyle crate, “smiling” at you, wagging their tail and wondering why they aren’t out playing yet. They don’t know it, but the break is good for them as well.
There are some exceptions to this. The management staff that resides in the back office has been known to
“steal” a dog every now and then at naptime.
The dog is brought into the office for some intense spoiling and fawning. If your dog is or was a puppy with us, it’s guaranteed this occurred. We just can’t help ourselves and often need that fix.
Today I dog-napped Henry Johnson. He’s a handsome, 7 year old Golden Retriever that’s been coming to Dogtopia of Tysons Corner for over 5 years now. He visits us for boarding, daycare and grooming. He’s a “full-service” client.
How could anyone care about how full your inbox becomes when you’ve got that face peaking over it at you?
Have a happy New Year everyone!
