Urban Dog Is The Tops In Pet Care

The most valuable thing we can give our dogs is a place where they can enjoy being themselves when we're away. If you think of all the roles they fill daily you'd realize it's the least we can do for them. Fortunately there is one local facility that offers owners canine peace of mind and that's Urban Dog Playcare on 1909 Pontius Ave. in West Los Angeles.

Why Is Urban Dog So Special?:

Safe, with comfortable "1/3" rubber flooring", and spacious play areas their pet friendly staff also promises to "respect your dog's individuality." Besides daycare, Urban Dog also offers boarding, obedience training and grooming. But beforewarned before you trot your anxious pup to this playcare because they insist you pass a series of requirements first.

When you come to your preliminary interview you must bring a completed personality profile, prove your dog is three months or older, and that they're spayed or neutered. Socialization is important at "Urban Dog" so remember if your dog participates in a fight you're financially responsible. If they're anti-social and annoying to other dogs they'll be put in a separate doggy run to "cool off" or be subject to an air horn blast. And if they don't pass the preliminary interview they won't be invited to stay.

The main reason this is such a special place is the staff. Devoted and knowledgeable they truly care about animals and some like Nicholas Drury even feel comfortable enough to bring his chow "Macaw" to work with him. When asked about the pros and cons of the job he admits,"I like working with the dogs except when we get new ones and their owners keep calling to check up on them and see how they're doing."

Separation anxiety is just one challenge he faces everyday. During one of L.A.'s worst heatwaves he recounted that it was really difficult for he and his co-workers to keep all of the dogs cool and comfortable. Overall, however, most days there are pretty routine starting at 6:00 a.m. with morning feeding and toileting and ending at 10:00 p.m. with bedtime. So if you are a caring and concerned dog parent who's looking for a reliable daycare for your pet Urban Dog would be an excellent choice for you.
