WE LOVE TO EAT!
We all bring our own food from home; this way we won’t get an upset tummy from eating something new. We also get homemade baked snacks and frozen yogurt treats. We are welcome to bring our own snacks from home, but we always bring a few extras to share with the rest of the gang … it’s the polite thing to do. Please be sure to let the Pack Leader know if we have any food allergies or sensitivities that they should be aware of. We can leave our bowls at home because Fresh Air Dogs has lots of stainless steel bowls that are washed after every meal (hey, we should do that at home, too!). Some of us inhale, some gulp, and some pick at their food, so … we’re all fed at the same time but in different locations; this way we can take as much time as we need for eating our meal. We all get “no play” time outside right after our meals to give our tummies time to digest.
WE LOVE TO DRINK!
There are lots of full water bowls everywhere with clean, fresh, cold, yummy, right-from-the-well water inside and out. In the winter we have heated water bowls to make sure our water doesn’t turn into a big, gallon-sized ice cube!
WE LOVE TO PLAY!
When the weather is good, most of our day is spent outside. Our most favorite thing is going on a Pack Walk. Some dogs need to be on a leash, but most of us don’t, so we get to be FREE to run and romp and play … it’s the best!!! There’s even a stream and a pond on our walks that we get to swim in, we love to swim! There’s lots of cool stuff to smell on our walks, too, and that really gives our sniffers a work-out! We like to play with toys, fetch the ball and lay in the sun on the deck. We even get to dig holes; Nera’s working on a trip to China! The rocket launcher is really, fun, too! When it’s really hot, we’d rather spend time inside where it’s nice and cool (we love air conditioning!). If it gets really buggy, we like to go inside then, too. When ya gotta go, ya gotta go … we like that we can “go” whenver we want; we don’t have to wait for someone to come home to let us out … here we go in and out all day long! We have lots of special things to chew on and play tug-o war with, too. We have a pool to wade, lay and splash in. On rainy days, we have an outside play area with a roof. In the winter, we love to play in the snow and make snow-dog angels. We can bring toys from home but we don’t really need to because there are plenty here, and you know how some dogs can get if someone else wants to play with their toys and they are not a sharer!
WE LOVE TO SLEEP!
At Fresh Air Dogs, we love getting uninterrupted nap time! Our Pack Leaders knows that we play hard and we need our rest so we don’t get grumpy, so they make sure we don’t get visitors during our naptime (usually right around 12-2 PM) … we like that! We have lots of new awesome memory foam beds, too! They’re wicked comfy!
At night, we get the royal treatment; there’s a huge king-sized bed upstairs that’s first-come, first-served. Barkley, the Golden Doodle, is mighty fast, so he’s usually parked for the night before we even get to the top stair. We can sleep wherever we’re most comfortable; there’s plenty of comfy beds here or you can bring one from home; the couch, loveseat and the big blue chair are game as long as they’re covered and we’re dry. We can sleep upstairs or downstairs; or, if you prefer your own private “cave,” there are big crates and little crates. If you want a private room, the office is always available (no extra charge).
