So this must be what they call the “dog days of summer”. We’re grateful for beautiful summer days and blue skies.

During these extra hot days, we’re also grateful for our air conditioning and so are your pooches! We hope you’re enjoying similar comfort.

Introducing “Nessie”
We believe Nessie wandered a little too far from her Totem Lake home but she has found a nice spot in Scampers Rain Garden.

Nessie has become more sociable, although we don’t think the expression “coming out of her shell” will ever apply to her. (!) She likes to share her day with the pooches – we think their exuberant play brings her to the surface and onto the beach. She may just enjoy all that glorious sunshine! We often point our flowing fountains her way to give her a nice splash of fresh water.

Summer Highs!
We have been experiencing some of our highest attendance numbers ever, unexpected in the summer months, usually impacted by summer vacations.
It becomes that much more important that we have advance notice of your plans to bring your pooches.

For our customers with recurring reservations, be aware that our reservations system has a limitation on the number of weeks it is able to record, so do recheck with us from time to time to be sure your reservations are still on our records.

Pooch need a spruce-up?
Chris Sugarbaker, Cut-N-Run’s groomer-in-chief, will drive his studio to Scampers on Tuesday, August 21st.

If your poooch needs a spruce-up, be sure to claim a spot with Chris right away – his schedule has filled up completely on more than one occasion.

Scampers Boarding and Weekends
Well, it looks like you are finding our boarding offering useful – a number of our suites are occupied regularly, and reservations are stacking up for future visits!

The weekend daycampers enjoy playing with the boarders, as they’re all good friends already! We set up our weekend daycamp in our back room as we can have our garage door open, and pooches enjoy the free flow indoors and outdoors.

Please remember that weekend visits are full day only, and require advance booking. We open our doors from 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. for check-in, and again from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. for check-out, so we don’t interrupt Cathy’s Pawlogic Training sessions.
