Did you know that a wagging tail is not necessarily the sign of a happy dog? It can be suprising to approach a tail wagging dog only to get growled or barked at. Other signs of dog body language should be considered when approaching any dog. Posture, position, ears, mouth and tail position can all communicate something other than "happy". There are many great resources online to learn how to read a dog's body language. Of course, a wagging tail can be a very happy and excited dog, especially when their entire body is also going wiggle, wiggle!

Playful Pooch is proud to announce that its Gold Standard of Accreditation has recently been extended by the Colorado Association of Dog Daycare (CADD).  What exactly does this mean for you?  Well, CADD encourages its members to reach for a "a standard of excellence beyond the requirements for state licensure".  The regular, or standard, licensure covers facility-related criteria, such as "construction materials, space requirements and sanitation, but not behavioral evaluation of client dogs, or staff experience and training."  Each of these criterion is described in detail on CADD's website, which can be accessed at www.coloradodogdaycares.org.

The Gold Standard Accreditation is awarded to "demonstrate [a] a facility's commitment to provide the highest level of professional dog management and care."  There is an extensive application process that is required in order to receive this designation.  The criteria for the accreditation go as follows:

Behavioral assessment standards for client dogs
Staff training protocol
Primary staff trainer qualifications
Continuing education requirements
Annual pet first aid training

This is just another example of how The Pooch constantly strives to provide your pet the best in care in a safe and clean environment!






As evidence of our ongoing commitment to our customers and their pets, Playful Pooch was named a winner of a Gold Star Certificate from BBB (Better Business Bureau) Denver/Boulder, 2012 - for having no complaints in a three-year period!
