It's that time of year again! With the kids back at school the mornings get a little more hectic and the afternoons get much, much quieter. Admist all these August changes, it can be easy to lose focus on your pup. But, did you know you could also be sending your fur baby to school? Our Day School program here at Greymont is top notch! It is a great group play program from which your dog can greatly benefit. Just like your children will be learning math and science, your pup can join our day school program to gain confidence and learn how to properly socialize and interact with people and other dogs.

Greymont News

We hope everybody had a happy and safe 4th of July. The staff at Greymont had a blast with all of the guests we had for the holiday! Our furry friends ranged in all sizes from tiny Yorkies, to giant Great Danes.

We had so many four-legged friends coming to visit that we actually filled up and had to go on a waiting list! We wanted to remind all of our clients to be sure to get those Labor Day reservations in early!

Get Your New Puppy Started Off On The "RIGHT PAW"!

Ben Sloan

Thinking about getting a new puppy for Christmas?

We would love to help make the transition of your new family member a smooth one!

Here are a few tips:

·         Get an appropriate dog for your lifestyle.  For example, if you and your family are not very active, research breeds that require less exercise than others.

·         Ask our Front Desk to send you a copy of our Puppy Book.  It will answer many of your questions. 

·         Touch your puppy’s ears, paws, and mouth on a regular basis.  This desensitizes them for future nail trimmings and vet visits.

·         Once your puppy has gotten the appropriate vaccinations, take them with you and expose them to as much as you can.  This will build their confidence and make them better, well-rounded family members.

·         Sign up for puppy class in January.  This will help you bond with your puppy as well as socialize them with their peers at an early age.

Greymont can help socialize your puppy with our Right Paw Program - a Board and Train Program designed to help your puppy cope with their new world!  Here, they are properly socialized with humans as well as other dogs.  Our daily field trips expose them to many different environments that helps them develop confidence.

After checking in on Stella, our most recent Right Paw graduate, we are told that she is doing quite well at home after spending two weeks with us.

“Stella is doing great!  You did a really great job with her.  She is continuing to become a well-adjusted part of our family.”

                  -Stella’s Mom

Sweet Stella!

Poolside Pooch: Water Safety For Your Pets!

Ben Sloan

As the days finally begin to warm up our Day School friends here at Greymont will not only be running, jumping, loving, and playing but swimming too!  Day School is quickly becoming a favorite way to get some socialization for dogs that are boarding or just here for the day!

Our awesome Day School Teachers will also add lifeguard to their job descriptions as they supervise pool play time.  With Memorial Day just passing most people have opened their pools to kick off the summer months.  Here are a few tips to keep your pets safe around the pool.

  • Great escape. Make sure there is always an easy way out of the pool or lake for your dog and make sure they know how to use it. If the stairs are inconvenient or hard for your dog to maneuver consider installing floating ramps or “doggy ramps” on the stairs for your dog’s safe exit from the water. There are companies that make portable ramps if you plan on bringing your dog to a lake or a pool away from home. Even if your dog is not a “swimmer” ensuring an exit is available could save his life should he jump or fall in.
  • No drinks in the pool. Never let your dog drink from the water. The chlorine and chemicals in the pool as well as the salt in the ocean and bacteria in lakes can also make your pet sick. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available for their enjoyment nearby.
