Today we had the pleasure of meeting Marley. Marley is a 4 month-old, 60 lbs., Great Dane pupper. He entered Fort Fido curious about his surroundings as he entered our Large Dog Program. While exploring the Large Dog Program Marley had the chance to meet a new friend, Neo. After having the time to explore, Marley broke into some fun play with Neo (see the video below). Later on, Marley decided to observe many of the other dogs as they played. We are looking forward to seeing Marley some more in the future.

Have a nice day,

King came in to the Fort early this morning for his assessment. He is a two-year-old, ninety-five-pound, Doberman Pinscher. King "spoke" very good dog, and played well with the others in our Large Dog Program. He spent most of his time playing with the puppies Pippa and Neo.

He did a great job today and is welcome back anytime. We look forward to seeing him again soon.

Have a great weekend,

Kato, Katniss & our PAWSOME Contest

 On Tuesday morning, we were greeted by these cute little fuzz balls. Kato and Katniss are both Pomeranians that are roughly ten pounds each. Katniss is the bigger sister, whose five years old and Kato is three! They both had a great first day being the newest additions to our Small Dog Program. 

Check them out, mingling with the pack below.

Both Kato and Katniss are welcome to come back for more daycare fun, whenever they want!

... Continue reading below to hear the rules of how we're doing our Basket Giveaway this time around.

Starting next Monday the 30th, and going until Thursday the 9th, we're holding our 
Valentines Day Pawsome contest!

                             Every time you bring your dog into daycare in between those days, you'll be able to guess how many treats are in this cute little container... We even made special slips for you guys to fill out as well. Don't worry, the only person that knows the TRUE number is David and his lips are sealed... ;)

 Once you've made your guess, we have a box where you'll put it in. We will eventually come back to it later, to tally up and see who our winner is!

Instead of having only one winner we figured, why not two!? So the person who wins first place will get the basket shown below, and the lucky pup who comes in second place, gets the whole container of treats.

In the event of a tie, I might add, there will be an additional drawing so don't worry


Winners will be notified on Friday, February 10th. I wish you guys luck in your guesses because I certainly need it. Guessing is not my forte. 

Have a wonderful evening, stay warm!

All About Fromms!

In case you're curious about Fromms, the pet food brand that we swear by- I figured I should write a blog about it and introduce some of its amazing benefits, as well as explain why this is the brand we choose to carry.

Fromms is a family owned and operated business based in Wisconsin, that's been around since 1904! The company idea was originally first formed by the four Fromms Brothers, while sitting on their front porch. Their dream was to have the  finest, most beautiful silver foxes in the world, in addition to cultivating and harvesting the best Ginseng. (A type of Root)

Their Gold recipe, the one we carry, is prepared with USDA-inspected Duck, Chicken, Lamb and combined with whole eggs and REAL Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese.

Fromms is so fresh, that they schedule their production of the food around the delivery of their ingredients. Their Duck, Chicken, and Lamb arrives the morning of- to insure the best product possible. They also make sure that their food has minimal processing and is cooked at low temperatures. This prevents extra damage to the Protein.

We have a wide variety of treat flavors: 
Lamb with Cranberry, Parmesan Cheese, and Salmon with Sweet Potato. We even have wet dog food, if you prefer that.

Feel free to stop on by and check out our dog food in person if you'd like. We will be here and ready to answer any questions that you have about it.

Have a marvelous weekend everyone!

FUNFACT: Fromms has never had any major recalls

This handsome guy, Moe, joined us yesterday morning. He's an eight month old, sixty five pound Husky mix. Moe had a good first day as he joined our Large Dog Program. He mingled among his new daycare mates, and eventually made a couple friends as the day went on.  

I'm looking forward to getting to know Moe as he starts coming here more often. 

Have a wonderful evening everyone,

Pennie became a member of Fort Fido today. Pennie is an 8 month-old, 37 lbs., Lab & Border Collie Mix. She quickly discovered our lobby and shortly after made her way into our Medium Dog Program. Once she began to meet other canine friends Pennie opened up and was quite the active pup. She made some awesome friends today and we hope to see Pennie again soon. 🙂

Have a wonderful day,

Banjo joined us this morning smiling from ear to ear. He's a one year old, forty pound Shepherd that has a whole lot of life in him! He came in here very curious, and scoped out his new surroundings as he wandered around our Large Dog Program. After he was more familiar with the place, he blossomed like a Butterfly! He even found some friends to play with.

Check him out below!

Banjo is welcome to come back to daycare whenever he pleases; we'd love to see him again.

Have a wonderful night everyone,

December Basket Giveaway

As you all know, we did another basket giveaway to show our appreciation for our customers over the Holidays! Every time a dog came to daycare in the month of December, they were automatically entered into the drawing to win that basket above...

Check out this video to see who our lucky winner is! 

  We were all super excited to see that Bogie was our winner. He has been coming here since he was only 3 months old; back in 2011... He's a daycare veteran! 

Try to stay warm tonight, it's supposed to be a chilly one!

Welcome Piper! Piper is an 8 month-old, 60 lbs., Doberman. She came into Fort Fido curious, wanting to explore our lobby more as she was being directed into our Large Dog Program and within our program Piper met many other pups, one of these pups being Snickerdoodles. Snickerdoodles and Piper played to the end of days and had a wonderful time just relaxing and romping during her time here today. Piper passed her assessment and is welcome to return to Fort Fido for more fun and to make many more new friends.

Have a wonderful day,
