Is Your Dog Ready for Back-to-School?
It’s already that time again to send the kiddos back to school. As the excitement builds, getting back into a school routine can bring all kinds of chaos and emotions. Kids are excited to see their friends again and meet their new teacher. Parents are excited for routines and early bedtime schedules but what about your dog?
While some dogs handle the back-to-school change fine, for others it can be scary or frustrating to see summer fade and kids go back to school. For many, summer is full of outdoor activities the dogs can also enjoy. But as Summer fades to Fall the doggos end up spending more and more time alone. A teacher friend’s dog did fine with the summer-to-fall school transition when he was a pup but, now at 10 years old, has developed a fear of being left alone for long periods of time when fall rolls around. In his case, it’s cumulative: on Monday he’s okay, Tuesday he’s more concerned, and by Thursday he’s barking continuously and digging and chewing at doorways.
Maybe you have a new puppy that is going to have to get used to a quiet house during the day, or maybe you have a senior dog who is going to miss his companions when the kids go back to school. Does your dog have high energy and you are afraid of what he will get into when left alone all day? No matter the age, size, breed, or behavior back to school is the perfect time to try out doggy daycare for your fur kiddos! We have lots of back to school activities planned at Vera’s in the coming months!
Meet the Teacher – For the whole month of August we will be highlighting our employees from both locations on our social media pages. This is a great way to get familiar with the staff who works with your pup every day and be able to put names with faces. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram so you can learn more about all our teachers!
Back-to-School Photos – Be sure to bring your kiddos in for daycare on the 8th of August to get their back to school pictures made
New Agility Equipment – If you haven’t seen already, both locations just got tons of new agility equipment. We can’t wait to see what the kiddos will learn this Fall on the agility course. Physical Education is the only subject that makes your heart race after all. 🙂
Teacher Appreciation – Are you or someone you know an education? From the 1-11th of August, all educators will get FULL-DAY daycare for the price of a half-day. Must show teacher ID at drop off. Be on the lookout for future teacher appreciation throughout the school year.
In addition we have daily activities and enrichment for your dogs to enjoy every single day at Vera’s Posh Paws.
We know you have enough to worry about this time of year. We want to help in any way possible to make the transition back-to-school as easy as possible for you and your dog. If you are wanting to try our Vera’s Posh Paws for the first time, be sure to get registered today. Their first day is always FREE!
