Pooch Of The Week
Pooch of the Week: Dexter

Dexter

Dexter, or Big Dexter as we call him at The Pooch, is a wonderful Great Dane that has been visiting The Pooch since may of this year. He has a great personality and the staff loves it when he visits. He is our tallest dog and on occasion will tower above the heads of our human team when he places his front paws on their shoulders! (Only on command of course!) He listens very well and is a joy to have around. Thank you Dexter!

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!
