A Safe Haven For Your Pup
In a time where we are encouraged to stay at home as much as possible, the days of extended vacations and long weekends at the cabin that may require leaving our pets to their own devices seem like a relic of the distant past. While many of us are hunkered down in our homes, spending endless time with our families, the option for daycare, both for children and for pets, has mostly disappeared. Annette and Eric Caporusso, owners of Dogtopia of Eau Claire, a daycare for pets, are here to remind essential workers in the Chippewa Valley, or even just folks who may need a break from their pets (we get it – it’s not always easy to be around each other 24/7, no matter how much you love your furry family members) they are still open for business.
Dogtopia, located on the corner of London Road and Gold Road, offers dog daycare, overnight and long-term boarding, and spa as well as webcam services for pup parents who still prefer to keep one eye on their dog. The Caporussos “take pride in offering more than just doggie daycare, but rather a place where your dog can experience a routine and purpose through our fun-filled days of exercise, socialization and education.” They also take special care to provide flexibility to clients, offering both full and half days of daycare to be an antidote to “the boredom and separation anxiety pets may experience home alone.”
The Caporussos know that not everyone is relegated to their homes during stay at home orders, and they want to emphasize their services to essential workers such as first responders or healthcare providers who continue to go to work every day. Additionally, working from home can be an added stress during this time, especially if you have multiple pets or family members to juggle extra care for around the house. Dropping your pets off for some education and socializing at Dogtopia, even for a few hours, is a great way to reduce stress and give you a chance to get some work done without furry friends insisting on constant cuddles and treats.
Whether you’re still out on the frontlines or you’re craving a well deserved break, Dogtopia of Eau Claire is an excellent way to ensure happy and healthy four legged friends. Use their mobile app or give them a call to schedule an appointment today!
