Dear Playful Pooch Owners,

In light of recent concerns about the coronavirus we wanted to assure you that our team is following the latest guidelines and recommendations from health professionals and the government. We are on Denver’s list of essential businesses as a dog boarding facility. We are serving our customers who need us to take care of their dogs while they work. We want our staff, customers and the dogs to all be safe and healthy while dropping off or picking up at Playful Pooch. We are practicing social distancing and are in compliance with Governor Polis and Mayor Hancock’s most recent business restrictions.  

We will remain open and welcome your pups during normal hours of operation. We are following our normal cleanliness standards for the facility and have added additional cleaning and sanitizing of surfaces that our staff and customers may come in contact with. We do have fewer dogs here due to people staying home, schools closing and trips being cancelled. You are welcome to just drop your leash near the front gate and we will take care of the rest. We have sanitizer on the front desk in case you should need to use the credit card machine or touch anything else.


Thank you in advance for being such loyal customers. We look forward to taking care of your pups now and in the future when we get through this difficult time.

Pooch of the Week: Biscuit

Biscuit

Meet Biscuit! She is a five year old Goldendoodle and has been visiting Playful Pooch since she was just a pup! She is very well behaved and playful at the same time. She loves coming to daycare and sometimes we think she is part human! She is a joy to have as part of our great group of dogs that come to play.

Playful Pooch Extends It's Gold Standard Accreditation!

Playful Pooch is proud to announce that its Gold Standard of Accreditation has recently been extended by the Colorado Association of Dog Daycare (CADD).  What exactly does this mean for you?  Well, CADD encourages its members to reach for a "a standard of excellence beyond the requirements for state licensure".  The regular, or standard, licensure covers facility-related criteria, such as "construction materials, space requirements and sanitation, but not behavioral evaluation of client dogs, or staff experience and training."  Each of these criterion is described in detail on CADD's website, which can be accessed at www.coloradodogdaycares.org.

The Gold Standard Accreditation is awarded to "demonstrate [a] a facility's commitment to provide the highest level of professional dog management and care."  There is an extensive application process that is required in order to receive this designation.  The criteria for the accreditation go as follows:

Behavioral assessment standards for client dogs
Staff training protocol
Primary staff trainer qualifications
Continuing education requirements
Annual pet first aid training

This is just another example of how The Pooch constantly strives to provide your pet the best in care in a safe and clean environment!
