I know I have touched on this in the past, but felt with the upcoming BUSY season, I should mention it again, and that is Drop Off & Pick Up Times!
I wanted to explain to you all why I ask "what time will you be dropping off, and what time will you be picking up"?
As you all know, I am a "one man show", with exception to a couple of people here and there who will cover for me if I'm out. With that being said, it is extremely important for me to know what time you will be arriving! I like to call it "CROWD CONTROL" :). Unlike the other bigger daycare and boarding places in our area, I don't have a "front lobby" where you can pick up or drop off peacefully, where there are usually no other dogs around. Instead, I have a fenced yard where all of the dogs who are here will act like wild children when someone arrives (as I'm sure most of you have witnessed). It is VERY EXCITING when people come, and I do my very best to keep things under control as much as possible, hence the reason I ask for a time of when you will arrive, in turn helping me to get dogs checked in or out as smoothly as possible.
Most of you are very good and will message me when you are on your way, which is deeply appreciated. Some of you have set times, don't message, but arrive on time, which is also deeply appreciated. I always ask, if you are going to be late, or need to be early, please message me so I can plan your arrival accordingly. As much as I like to use the term "ish", it truly doesn't work for me here. I really do need to have a set time to make life smoother.
Hopefully this helps to answer any questions you may have. Please let me know if I can answer anything else, and what time you will be here :) :) :)
Thank you all very much,
