Introducing Play and Stay!

At Best Friends we are always striving to make your pet's stay with us fun and exciting.  This is why we have added a new program for our more social clientele.  We call this our Play and Stay option. 

Now for a discounted price, pets staying with us overnight can participate in our Doggy Day Camp Program during the day!  Your pet's day would consist of him/her going to camp from 7:00AM until 11:00AM, then heading back to their room to finish their breakfast, or be served lunch.  At 1:00PM, they would head back into the camp room and stay until 5:00PM when they would go back for dinner and a relaxing evening in their suite.

Many of our boarding pets have begun to experience Play and Stay, and they are certainly having a great time!  If you think your pet would be interested in this program, give us a call at 215-659-3441 for more information.  All pets participating in the Play and Stay program should be up-to-date with Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella vaccines, as well as have a clean fecal within the previous six months to boarding.  Also, an interview is required before a stay to make sure that this is a good option for your best friend and that they will enjoy themselves.  We look forward to making new friends this summer!

Doggie Day Camp Prom

We had our 2nd Annual Day Camp Prom on Wednesday.  Twenty-four doggie couples attended dressed to the nines in tuxedos, gowns, bowties and tiaras.  Even the Best Friends staff (or Prom Chaperones) were dressed up.  Pink and purple streamers, balloons and lights decorated the lobby and party music played all day! 

A Prom King and Queen for Wee Doggy Day Camp and Big Doggy Day Camp were crowned.  We also awarded prizes to the Cutest Couple and Mr. and Miss Congeniality.

Max and Olivia were voted Big Camp King and Queen and Winston and Frosty were Wee Camp King and Queen.  

Santo and Isabella were Mr. and Miss Congeniality

And Harry and Tlalli were won the Cutest Couple Award!

At the end of the day, all of the Camp Moms and Dads were given ceramic mugs with a picture of their pet and his or her date.

Best Friends Helping to Clean up the Gulf Coast Oil Spill

Hair is hydrophobic which means it repels water, it is also great for absording oil.  A group called Matter of Trust has volunteers making devices called hair mats and hair booms out of recycled hair and nylons - which are then placed in the water to soak up the oil.  After this big spill, hair is in high demand - and Best Friends wants to help!

Check out this video posted by Matter of Trust below.

For the next few weeks we will be collecting hair from our grooming clients to send to the Matter of Trust volunteers, and you can help!  If your pet is due or overdue for their summer haircut, give us a call and set up an appointment.  Every bit of hair helps, even your short-haired shedders can help this great cause by coming in for a bath and brushout.  Want to help even more, schedule a shedicure* to really get that undercoat out and off to help with the clean-up.

We are off to a great start, but could always use more help!  Give us a call and schedule that grooming appointment today!

*Shedicure reduces shedding up to 80%. After a luxurious bubble bath, our groomers will use a brush called a FURminator to remove more hair and undercoat than just a regular brushing from your pet. This process should give you some relief from shedding for 3-6 weeks!

Make Some Best Friends at Best Friends!

Here at Best Friends Pet Care, we strive to make your pet's stay with us fun and entertaining!  We offer a variety of activities that can be grouped together to make your pet's stay more personalized.  One of these activities is called playgroup.

Playgroup is our only group activitiy and it is great for the more social and energetic dog.  Labs we're talking to you!  This is a 45 minute session of play with fellow boarding dogs.  Each session is monitored by one of our trained and certified associtates.  Many of our frequent boarders LOVE to meet up with friends that they have seen before, and making a new friend is always on the agenda.

The next time your bring your best friend in, think about adding a playgroup to their stay for more fun!
