New Pool Addition

Summer is almost here, and we have some exciting news! Our new pool is in the works, thanks to your enthusiastic feedback in our recent survey. The overwhelming support for a swim program has inspired us to expand our offerings and provide more fun activities for the pups in our care. In addition to the new pool, our shade sails, misters, and existing pools are up and our resort patio vibe is in full effect. We are hopeful to have everything up and running by National Dog Party Day on June 21st! Wish us luck! There will be additional announcements about the details of our new swim program, including answers to many of the questions that were asked in our survey responses. Stay tuned!

Veterinary Partnerships and Continuing Education

Heat Stroke Awareness/Pool Safety

We are proud to announce the second session of our semi-annual educational series with our local vet consultant. In our last meeting, we covered a broad range of topics, but our upcoming session will focus primarily on pool safety and heat stroke - how to spot the signs and preventive measures. Partnering with our veterinary community and having recurring, onsite meetings is crucial for us. This dedicated educational series ensures our employees are well-informed and prepared. Safety is our top priority at Luckydog, and we are committed to ensuring the well-being of all the dogs in our care.


New Booking Platform: Goose

For the past 5+ years, we've shared the limitations of our current operating software with you. However, we are excited to announce that there's finally hope on the horizon. We have been beta testing Goose, a state-of-the-art booking platform that is light years ahead of the current offerings in our industry. You should be extremely pleased with the results as will we. While we can't give an exact timeline, we are hopeful that the migration to the new system will take place mid-summer if not sooner. Stay tuned for more updates as things progress.

Exciting News: IBBY Award Nom.

We are thrilled to announce that Luckydog Day & Night Care has been nominated for a 2024 IBBY Award from the International Boarding and Pet Services Association. The IBBY Awards, also known as the Petcare Business Excellence Awards, honor those who raise the bar for professionalism and success in the pet care services industry. This nomination recognizes our vision and leadership, animal welfare practices, company culture, customer service, community involvement, and commitment to ongoing learning and development. We are extremely honored and look forward to the next steps in the selection process.

Team Appreciation

We recently held a lively bowling party to honor our team's hard work and dedication to our furry clients. The competition was fierce, highlighted by our daycare manager, Stacey, who achieved a badger—four strikes in a row—despite being a novice bowler. Ultimately, Stacey and certified dog trainer Reasha, secured the championship title together. Their names will be proudly displayed on our perpetual trophy, granting them well-deserved bragging rights. I couldn’t be prouder or luckier to work with such an extraordinary team!
