Comet, the person who was supposed to do my orientation today was sick, so there is a lot of stuff I didn't find out about. Hopefully, next time I'm there, I'll get the whole scoop on what their rules are.
But I got the feeling that they really didn't care too much how you walked the dog, as long as you were able to keep it under control!
In addition to two walks a day, plus socialization time with volunteers, the dogs also get frozen stuffed Kongs, or ice treats - a mix of wet and dry dog food plus water, frozen into a large puck in a plastic margarine container.
Most of the dogs have Kuranda type beds, though the really dedicated chewers aren't allowed beds or bedding, because swallowing the pieces presents too much of a risk of intestinal obstruction.
The animals could have more space, and they only have two dog runs, but my first impression of the place was very positive. I adopted a cat from the a couple of years ago, and he's a great lap warmer, and stands up to the dogs and puts them in their place. He also catches any mice that he finds in the house!
