Upcoming Breed Days

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

What are breed days? Every Tuesday here at Dogtopia of Tysons Corner, we hold a special playgroup for different breeds, breed types, and mixes. The dogs get special play time and a fun photo session. Everyone who participates gets to take home a fun photo collage, and the photos all get posted to our online gallery.

Mark your calendar! Here are the next four breed days:

  • Dec. 9th – Black & White Ball (dress code: dogs that are a mix of black & white only!)
  • Dec. 16th – Gentle Giants (100 lbs and up!)
  • Jan. 6th – Snow Day (for our little white friends)
  • Jan. 13th – Tiny Terrier Tuesday (brace yourself!)

Have a breed day suggestion? Leave a comment or let us know at the front desk! Here are some colages from our most recent breed days:

Howl-o-ween Party Too Cute For Words!

Friday, October 31st, 2008

Adorable costumed K9s strutted their stuff at Dogtopia of Tysons on Sunday afternoon for our Howl-o-ween Party. Dogs and owners enjoyed goodies and mingling. Dogtopia owner Amy’s son Aiden was the official candy dispenser and took his job very seriously! The Dogtopia staff voted to determine the prize winners.

Bruno Dame edged out his siblings for Cutest in his pig costume, complete with hooves and curly tail. Bruno attends daycare every day with his sister, Emma, the purple monkey, and his foster sister, Jasmine, the jack-o-lantern.

Spookiest went to Wendy Schermerhorn, another daily daycare dog, in her devil dressed as a puggle, I mean puggle dressed as a devil costume. ;)

Most Original was a unanimous decision, Princess Leia Noel the boxer as Pocahontas. Her human companion even dressed up to match!

Best Effort had to go to Lily Medina-Hamlin for bringing two costumes! Lily was adorable as a dinosaur and caveman. After her wardrobe change, she was so cute as Minnie Mouse. “Minnie” even got to play with Mickey, a happy shih-tzu who is a daycare regular and attended as Christmas Dog.

Several of the dogs had a little trouble keeping the head-gear parts of their costumes on as they romped around, but that just added to the silliness of it all! Click here to view all the adorable photos!

It was Pug-a-Palooza today in the Toy Box! We were joined by some of our favorite pugs and puggles (beagle/pug mixes) for a special play day.

Wendy ruled the jungle gym, showing off how nimble she was. Bella was the fetch champion, but also enjoyed playing tug-o-war with Zoe. Pugs, Harley and Pieper got into the action as well!

Loveable Lab Day!

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

Today was Loveable Lab Day here at the Dogtopia of Tyson’s Corner! Tails were wagged and pool water was splashed. A great time was had by all!

The pool was a huge hit and was dominated by Nelson, Gordy, Abby and Oliver. Abby’s new baby brother, Harley the black lab puppy, got to come to Lab Day on his first day of daycare! He enjoyed meeting all the “big kids” who he will play with someday. Harley was a brave boy and went down the big slide! Daisy, a lab puppy who plays in the Toy Box, got to play with the big kids too! Ginger was “Queen of the Castle” and watched all the activity from up high.

Please visit our Loveable Lab Day gallery to see all of the adorable labs who were a part of this event!
