Inclement Weather Protocol

    Hey Packsters! With more snow on the horizon, we wanted to send out a quick reminder about our inclement weather policy.

Howdy Pack Parents: September is among us! We are almost over with The Dog(ma) days of summer!

Hello Beautiful Packsters! Happy Spring​ Do you smell that? My sniffer is working overtime. Spring is in the air! Daily pool time is just around the corner.

Hello Pack Parents!

  Izzy here, pool-side and staying cool as DC’s August dog-days set in. Given its steam-bath-summer-as-usual, I highly suggest splashing around in a pool to keep cool. You should take your fury friends with you. Or, you can also send them here to beat the heat with me in DogMa’s pools. I personally prefer the all-but-schnozzle-in-the-drink swimming routine in the big…
