New Service Hours in Effect During Shelter-in-Place

New Service Hours in Effect During Shelter-in-Place

We have a new service schedule during the Shelter-in-Place order.  We will only be open for Daycare Tuesdays through Thursdays.

Boarding reservations made before March 27th, for March and April dates, will be honored.  Otherwise, new boarding reservations will be on a case-by-case basis giving priority to medical and first responders, as well as, people who are critically ill that need care for their pets while they are in the hospital.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at (530) 867-5727 (call or text).  We would be happy to address any concerns you have!

Be safe and well, folks!

DIY Cheap and Easy Dog Cleaning Spray — COVID-19 Precautionary Measure!

There is a lot of anxiety about dogs attending daycare due to the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).  Though dogs carrying the virus on their coats (carriers) and transferring the virus to other people is considered low, the possibility is still there.  As an extra precaution when dogs enter into our home to attend daycare or boarding, we are spraying their coats with a coat cleaner that is mostly made of white vinegar.  We also suggest that when the dogs return home from being in our care that their owners clean their coats yet again as a safety precaution.  Better to be safe than sorry, right?!

The recipe for the spray that we use contains a pure essential oil (peppermint) in a very low amount.  The use of essential oils on or around dogs is quite controversial and opinions vary.  We suggest that if you have any reservations about what oil or oils to use that you contact your veterinarian.

Some dogs have several allergies.  For those dogs, owners will need to supply us with a waterless shampoo, spray or wipes to clean their dog’s coat with.  We will return all products with the dog when the dog goes home.

As a general recipe note:  You can simply just omit the essential oil and just use white vinegar and water.

The important thing is making sure that we’re all as clean and safe (as much as we can be) during this time of much uncertainty, as well as, keeping at least a six-foot distance between us and others.

Wishing you health and happiness!

The Service, Overnights, Discontinued

We have decided to discontinue the service known as “Overnights”, which was house-sitting combined of course with pet sitting.

Overnights has been our least popular service, and as all of the other services have grown around it, we were left with no one able to perform this service when the rare request would come in.

We do, however, have a host of other services we offer (we’re in the process of possibly adding one more service with details of such hopefully coming in the near future) to make sure that your pets (from large to small) will always receive the care they personally need in order to meet their individual needs.

Thank you for your understanding!  As always, if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.  We would be more than happy to answer them for you.
