Marley & Sally

Marley is one of the dogs that assessed with us this morning and I must say, this two year old, English Bulldog, is one goofy girl! Marley immediately started mingling among her new friends the moment she arrived and showed great Dog Speak! We were able to capture her on video doing just that; check it out below! 

Marley wasn't the only one checking us out for the first time today; say hello to her sister, Sally. She's a three year old Pug!
Sally had a marvelous time being a dog and doing dog things with her own kind today. We even got her in action! 

Marley and Sally plan on boarding with us this weekend; I'll be looking forward to seeing them again. 

Have a wonderful rest of your Wednesday,

Berry Bramble

Bramble (not the British blackberry bush) joined us for his assessment today. Bramble is a 3 year-old, 11 lbs., Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. He entered Fort Fido as ready as can be and made his way into The Fort. Once there, Bramble up and into our Small Dog Program where he stayed throughout his assessment. Bramble was able to meet many other pups today as they came in throughout the morning and was able to mingle with them. We are looking forward to seeing Bramble more.

Have a wonderful day,

Kashi & Anni

This morning we had the pleasure of meeting Kashi. He is a ten-month-old, forty-seven-pound, Lab/Border Collie mix. He joined our Medium Dog Program where he enjoyed mingling with the other dogs. As he became more comfortable here, he started playing with Neo a three-month-old Husky puppy. Kashi is welcome back anytime. We look forward to seeing him again soon. 

Anni came in for her assessment this morning as well. She is a three-year-old, fifty-five-pound, Husky x Akita x Border Collie mix. Anni "spoke" very good dog and made lots of new friends in our Large Dog Program. We hope to see her again soon. Good job today, Anni.

Here is a clip of Anni playing with Diego the Golden Retriever.

Have a great weekend,

Lilo & Sadie

Yesterday we welcomed this little cutie into our Small Dog Program. She's a five month old, seven pound  Maltipoo with a whole lot of cuteness to pass around! Lilo had a lot of fun exploring her new hang out area. She curiously went around, sniffing all the fun toys we have up there for them! It was adorable to watch.

 Sadie was today's assessment. She's a one year old Mix that weighs fifty pounds. Sadie started off with a rough life; she was found behind a car dealership and was so under-malnourished that she looked incredibly old.

It wasn't until after she was rescued and cleaned up, that they realized how young she is! 

I'd say this girl is one lucky pup! Starting off on the streets and now has an amazing home with owners who care for her, and want to get her socialized! 

Sadie passed her assessment with flying colors and even made some new friends: Scandi and Abby.

Both Lilo and Sadie are welcome to return for more daycare fun whenever they please!

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday,

  We welcomed Marcel into our Medium Dog Program yesterday morning. He's a three month old, forty pound Doberman Pinscher.

 Marcel was recommended to The Fort through one of our long time customers, Zeus, whose been coming here since 2012! 
I was able to capture a couple photos of the two together. All in all, he had a wonderful first day. He's a smart young pup with a beautiful shiny coat, and lots of energy to burn!  Marcel's first friend was Neo, an adorable Siberian Husky  that joined us not too long ago. We were able to catch a video of the two playing. Feel free to check it out below!


  Marcel had such a great time with us, that he decided to come back for more daycare fun today! Initially, he started out with the "medium" dogs but we decided to graduate him to our Large Dog Program today.

Guess what type of dog he bonded to in that program? Another Husky. I don't blame him though; he sure has some good taste! 

Here he is, playing with Rogue!

As you can see, this little guy is quite the social butterfly. I was lucky enough to get quite a bit of photos of him in action too.

 We look forward to watching Marcel blossom and grow with us. 

Have a marvelous evening everyone, try to stay warm! We're starting to get that winter chill...

Nala entered Fort Fido comfortably this morning. Nala is a cute 10 month-old Lab/Border collie mix that entered Fort Fido confidently and strolled right into our medium dog program. She has a sister that already attends Fort Fido named Dixie. Within our medium dog program, Nala began to meet the others as they came in throughout the day. She showed good dog speak and began to play with the others after becoming comfortable with her surroundings. Unlike the Naga from Warcraft III, Nala likes to mingle & play with dogs rather than water beings like the Naga. Nala fits in well with the rest of the pups and we, as well as the other dogs, are looking forward to seeing Nala again.

Have a great day,

Charlie & Riky Tiky

Charlie came in for his assessment bright and early this morning. He is a nine-year-old, twenty-five-pound, Cairn Terrier. Charlie was a great fit for our Medium Dog Program. He "spoke" good dog and played very well with the others. One of his favorite new friends is Neo, a three-month-old Husky puppy. We look forward to seeing him again very soon. Good job today, Charlie!

Check out this clip of Charlie and Neo playing this morning.

Yesterday, we had the pleasure of meeting Riky Tiky. He is an adorable five-month-old, eight-pound, Pomeranian/Dachshund mix. He spent his first day at the Fort playing with the dogs in our Small Dog Program. He did a good job and had a lot of fun. He is welcome back anytime. We look forward to seeing him again soon.

Have a great weekend,

NuVet & NuJoint Plus

  Some of you may have already heard of these amazing Canine Supplements but if you haven't, I strongly suggest reading what I have to share below. 
  I'll be discussing each product a little more in depth, so you can see if either of them are something you think your dog will benefit from.

  NuVet Plus is the first step you need to take to set your dog on the right path of achieving perfect health. This natural, powerful, and number one highest quality supplement since 1997, is recommended by Veterinarians everywhere.

  • Allergies

  • Arthritis
  • Digestive Issues
  • Hair Loss
  • Ear and other Infections
  • Low Energy Levels 
  • Tear Staining 
  No wonder NuVet Plus is your pet's best friend! It helps with all sorts of things. 
  Because this company understands how important it is for your pup to live a happy and healthy life, they decided not to process their products with heat. Heat destroys essential nutrients and we can't have that! It contains natural, human-grade ingredients such as: Antioxidants, amino acids, Vitamins, and Minerals. Every ingredient that's added to make these amazing supplements are microscopically tested to ensure that it is at its maximum potency. 
  NuVet Plus is safe for animals of all ages, including pregnant females.

  NuJoint plus is the most effective Hip and Joint Supplement that's on the market today. Just like NuVet, the ingredients in this supplement is high quality human-grade ingredients. In fact, you can find these same ingredients in supplements that Humans use for Arthritis. 
  NuJoint's combination of ingredients creates a defense against damage done to your dogs Joints by Lubricating them as well as repairing damaged Cartilage. 
  •  Protects Healthy Joints
  • Rebuilds Cartilage
  • Lubricant for Fluid Movement
  • Reduces Inflammation
  • Expands Mobility and Flexibility 

  Young or old, you're dog doesn't need to suffer from common canine problems I talked about above; especially since these Supplements are on the market. You can order them online, (although it'd be more expensive because of the shipping fee) OR you can buy them through us. We carry these products in stock and swear by them! Just ask one of our Employees and we will assist you.

Have a wonderful night everyone,

- Arthur -

(The Arthur above is not an actual representation of Arthur the pup below)
Welcome Arthur! Arthur is a 3 year-old, 15 lbs., king charles cavalier. He came into Fort Fido ready to investigate the surroundings his sibling Maximus enjoys. Arthur got to meet many pups within our Small Dog Program today and was sociable with them. He more so enjoyed playing with the toys, but still had a great time around the others. We are glad that we were able to meet Arthur today.

Have a wonderful day,

Neo and Finnley

  We welcomed this joyful pup into The Fort Tuesday morning. Neo is a three month old Siberian Husky that weighs only twenty six pounds! This young one is quite the little ball of energy! (As expected. Did you know some Huskies can pull over three times their weight?) Overall, Neo got along great with the rest of his new daycare buddies. He's very high spirited, curious, and bright. I love his super alert, well furred ears.

We were able to capture his playfulness on video, check him out below, playing with his new friends Hank and Frankie !

Today we had the pleasure of meeting Finnley! She's a two year old, fifty pound Field Lab. Finnley passed her assessment with flying colors. Even though we just met her, this isn't the first time we met her parents, David and Susi. We met those two years ago, when they brought in their other dog, Grady, around 2011. All in all, Finnley had a great first day and seemed to fit in with her brother's pals like she's known them for years.

Neo and Finnley are both welcome to come back whenever they want; we would love to see them return! Have a great night everyone,
