Introducing… Maggie and Liffey!

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009


We are constantly amazed by the variety of dogs that love to play at Dogtopia. Dogs are often regarded as the most varied animal species on the planet. From Dobermans to Westies… Chocolate Labs to American Eskimos. And even Miniature Dachshunds to Great Danes. We get the pleasure of meeting, greeting and playing with them all every single day!

Sleepy Maggie

Sleepy Maggie

Maggie is a 15 week old (AHH!!) Miniature Dachshund who is here for her very first day. She packs as much cuteness in a 4 pound frame as anyone could imagine! She’s been playing in the Toy Box today and despite her diminutive size, she has found some playmates on her level, Joco (Toy Poodle) and Sam (another Dachshund). Because she’s still

just a little puppy we give her breaks from the play group, so she can rest. It’s also a chance for us to spoil her a tiny bit at the front desk!



On the other side of our size spectrum is Liffey!

Liffey just turned one last week and we cannot believe how much she has grown! She has a great puppy quality about her and based on the other Great Danes who hang out with us, her “puppy stage” will probably last for some time! :) She enjoys playing in the Lounge and it’s great to see her jump around the playset, run onto the futon and run back. It’s as if she’s playing her own personal game of tag!

We would’ve loved to have just as many pictures of Liffey as Maggie (we don’t play favorites) but this was the only time Liffey was still enough for a photo. :) We were thrilled to capture it!

Pups in the snow!

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

Last week we asked everyone to send in their best Snow Dog pictures.

The pictures were great and it was SO hard to pic just one to be our Snow Champion!

But in the end… Spencer the Cavalier’s amazing ACTION shot reigned supreme! Spencer will receive a Dogtopia gift certificate for a complimentary Spa Day!

Thanks again to every snow covered pup that entered!!

Our newest friends Lucy and Ashley!

Friday, March 6th, 2009


We’ve had a lot of new friends coming into Dogtopia of Tysons lately and we’re so excited to get to know each of them better!

Lucy is 1 year old Shiba Inu/Heeler mix who has moved to the area from Colorado, where she also attended daycare. She now comes to play in the Toy Box every day.

The Shiba Inus we’ve been privileged to meet are very intelligent dogs and seem to hold very high standards. You have to earn a tail wag! :) Thankfully Dogtopia seems to meet Lucy’s standards and she has warmed up very quickly.



Lucy is pictured wagging her tail in the Toy Box with Chester the Cocker Spaniel, Aiden the Tibetan Terrier and an unidentified (but cute) Puggle rear-end.

Ashley (love the name!) is almost one and she comes to play every day as well. Ashley hangs out in our Gym and is a rescue dog, so we always have a special place for them! She’s a lucky dog from Lost Dog & Cat Rescue, a great organization that’s been doing wonderful work in the Northern Virginia are for years. Ashley is a very sweet girl and she’s made fast friends with some of the other Lounge regulars like Wishbone the Border Collie and Ellie the Chocolate Lab.

Dogtopia wants to hear from you!

Check the blog? Save a little $$$

Launching our blog has been a great experience and in 2009 we have BIG plans for it!

Not only will we continue to share interesting doggie tidbits we find around the web and good times here at the daycare, but we also want to make this a fun, interactive forum for all of you who support Dogtopia!

In an email earlier this week, we shared that contests, one-day specials and events will be exclusively announced right here on the Dogtopia of Tysons Corner blog! We have lots of fun ideas that will keep you engaged with us and also help you save a little money along the way.

If you’re not signed up for our email list, click this link to do so! The last email contained a contest and the first 5 respondents received a gift certificate for their next visit with us.
