Ansel, Nadia, and Zorro

Ansel and his sister Nadia came in for their assessments early this morning. Ansel is a one-year-old, fifty-pound, Samoyed. He was very playful and had a fun day playing with all the pups in our Large Dog Program

Next up we have Ansel's older sister, Nadia. She is a six-year-old, eighty-three-pound, Samoyed. Nadia spent her time here at the Fort mingling with the other dogs and watching the puppies play.

They both did a great job today, and are welcome back anytime. We look forward to seeing them again soon.

Yesterday, we had the pleasure of welcoming Zorro. He is a seven-year-old, thirty-five-pound, Cocker Spaniel. Zorro joined our Medium Dog Program where he spent his time hanging out with the other dogs. He really enjoyed playing with Zoey and Allie Bee. He is welcome back anytime and we look forward to seeing him again very soon.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year.

Zola was our bright and cheery assessment on Tuesday. She's a fifty pound, ten month old Standard Poodle. It was apparent pretty quickly that this girl was going to pass her assessment with flying colors; she's quite the social butterfly. She even found a new friend named Oakley... Check them out below, we were able to capture them playing on video.

 I hope you all have a great rest of your evening,

Boejangles "Boe" Hurricane

Today we had the joy of meeting Boejangles "Boe" Hurricane. Boe is a 5 month-old, 33 lbs., Golden Doodle. Boe entered Fort Fido interested, investigating us and meeting new pups right away in our Large Dog Program. Boe was a tad bit shy today which is totally understandable, he met many other dogs throughout his stay here at The Fort. He began to open up more towards the end of his assessment day with help from the other pups. I think Boe would benefit from further attending so he can open up even more and make some good friends to play with.

Have a wonderful day,

Lukas was today's Handsome assessment. He's a mellow, eight year old Brittany Spaniel 
that weighs fifty pounds. Lukas came in here with curious eyes and a "sniffer" working on over-drive. He made his way back to our Medium Dog Program where he curiously checked out all the dogs and got to know them slowly, throughout the morning.

He's welcome to come back for more mingling and daycare fun whenever he pleases...
Happy Holidays everyone!

Today we had the pleasure of welcoming Sidney to Fort Fido. Sidney is a young 13 week-old, 23 lbs., Black Lab. Sidney entered our front doors and she was curious about this new place she has never been to before. She made her way into our Medium Dog Program and right away was ready to meet others. Sidney began to play and have lots of fun during her stay here while learning some "dog speak." Sidney is a fun and curious puppy, we are looking forward to seeing her some more.

Have a wonderful day,

 Macy was our assessment yesterday morning and was finally able to come check out the place her brothers spend their days! 

 She's a fourteen pound, four in a half year old Beagle that's probably one of the most sweetest Beagles I've ever met. Macy has a wonderful "motherly figure" about her, and very much enjoyed meeting a bunch of new friends yesterday.

 We've known her owner Bif, for quite some time now. She loves to rescue older dogs and give them a forever home and has brought quite a few of them here over the years.

Check out her brothers,Sebacion and Captain who come here on a regular basis!

I'm looking forward to seeing Macy join her brothers in the daycare fun.
I hope you all have a good night,

Today we were greeted by the three Whippet's Chipper, Ollie, and Zoey. These three little rascals entered Fort Fido ready to explore. Once they had arrived and quickly became familiar with our lobby, they made their way back into our Medium Dog Program. Once there, they began to slowly meet the other pups throughout the day. Chipper, Ollie, and Zoey socialized and mingled with the group and we are excited to see them return soon.

Have a great day,

In case you missed our other drawings in the past, I'll explain how it all works below.

During the month of December, every time you bring your dog in for daycare, you will automatically be entered into a drawing to win this basket! The more times your dog comes to play, the better chances you have at winning. David and Nancy stuffed this thing with all kinds
of goodies. 
I just did a price check and the value of all the things in this basket is over $150! Whoever wins this giveaway is going to score big time!

Be sure you're on the lookout at the beginning of next month because the results will be posted on Facebook.

Good luck everyone; I'm excited to see who our winner is going to be.
