Sharon is a single an empty nester whose furry-friend Ginger is like her child. Sharon feels guilty when she leaves Ginger home alone, and she is willing to sacrifice in order to have Ginger cared for while she is at work each day. Sharon hates the thought of Ginger sitting home alone for 9 – 11 hours per day while she works, and even more finding someone to care for her during business trips. Sharon wants Ginger to be in a setting where she knows Ginger is having fun in a stimulating, safe and nurturing environment. Sharon wants to know Ginger is with someone she can trust to not only keep Ginger safe, but also to keep her happy, entertained and active.
How She Found Us
Sharon found Doodle Dog Daycare through her neighbor, Brenda, who has been a long time customer of Doodle Dog. Brenda forwarded Sharon an email that linked to our website which tells the story, our story. As Sharon read the story and saw the heartwarming images, she thought to herself, “This is exactly what I need for Ginger…how do I get started?”
Lifelong Relationships & The Tour
Our best customers become a part of our family, and we become a part of theirs. We’re not just another stop on the to-do list, we care, and we know them and their dogs, and they value us for that. We want for them to continue to be our customers through generations of family dogs. Customers for life is our goal.
Because Sharon had an upcoming business trip, she needed to take the tour soon. On the day of her appointment, she pulled in to the parking lot and we were ready.
Sharon was nervous about the tour, but soon, as she watched the dogs happily playing she relaxed. She was greeted by name by the reception staff and welcomed to Doodle Dog Daycare. She was offered a beverage while she waited for her tour to begin. She thought to herself that the place smelled great, she would soon learn the fresh smell was a result of the medical grade air scrubbers installed in the play area and boarding cottages.
The tour guide arrived in the office right on time and spent a few minutes getting to know Sharon and hearing about Ginger. Before heading out to show Sharon around the play areas, grooming areas and boarding cottages, our tour guide gave Sharon a quick history of Doodle Dog Daycare and explained why we do what we do.
Sharon noticed that our boarding cottages looked and smelled clean and homey, and our building was in excellent condition. Each staff member that Sharon encountered was friendly and welcoming. Sharon could tell by the condition of the building and the play areas that Ginger would be safe and secure at Doodle Dog Daycare.
After visiting each area of the facility, Sharon, very impressed with the cleanliness and professionalism we showed, was already thinking this was the perfect place for Ginger to stay while she was away. Before Sharon left, we offered her a complimentary evaluation and day of play for Ginger.
Her Big Day
The day of the business trip came and Sharon dropped off Ginger on her way to the airport. She said her goodbyes and was reassured by our staff that Ginger would be just fine, in fact she would be happy and well taken care of.
As Sharon was on her way, she started to think that Ginger might have more fun during this stay than Sharon would on her trip. She was so relieved to know Ginger was in good hands. When she arrived, she has already received an email from us with happy pictures of Ginger. Upon Sharon’s return, Ginger sits patiently waiting to greet Sharon and does not jump. Sharon decided that Ginger was so happy after her time at Doodle Dog that she begin bringing Ginger to play each week. Sharon and Ginger have become part of the Doodle Dog family and we hers.
Much like Sharon’s experience, all of our customers receive the same quality care and services. All owners can log on to our website to check on their dogs or make a quick call to receive a report. Depending on the season we have special treats, treatments and services that make coming to Doodle Dog a wonderful experience.
