EDUCATION -

Life never stops teaching so why would we ever stop learning?

Continuing education is a must for DePAW employees in order to keep on top of the latest pet health care topics and be able to provide the best care to your fur babies while entrusted in our care. 

We take pride in continually being voted by the community as the best pet kennel and attribute this to not only hiring "experienced only" staff but requiring them to have yearly continuing education.

DePAW is proud to say we sent 5 employees to St. Pete FL for the annual IACP (International Association of Canine Professionals) conference last month.  We are so excited at the wealth of knowledge they brought back to share with the rest of the staff in caring for all our furry guests!


Congratulations to our very own trainer, Chad Mackin, for his award for writing Article Of The Year! We are lucky to have you at DePAW and so very proud of you and all the dogs you are able to help with your training!


DePAW is also proud to say we sent another 5 employees to St.Louis for the annual IBPSA (International Boarding & Pet Services Association) conference the beginning of this month. They attended dozens of seminars on topics from pet care operations, dealing with pet emergencies, customer loyalty, innovative ideas, and staff leadership. 

We hope this wealth of new knowledge is reflective to our clients in the level of service and care you see us provide you and your furry family member! Comments, questions, and suggestions on our experiences are always welcome! Send us an email to info@depawK9.com 


BOARDING -

Gentle reminder the holiday season is fast approaching and space is limited, don't wait to book your reservation. Call today 630.232.8663.  If you have a reservation and have not yet received a confirmation email, please call us to verify your reserved dates and to be sure we have all vaccinations updated so we can get you on your way to your final holiday destination without delays. To be sure you have all the necessary vaccines DePAW requires, please visit our Policies and Forms page on our website by clicking here. Please note that it is the client's responsibility to be sure their veterinary office sends the pet's records to our office before the time of boarding by either faxing it to 630.232.8667 or emailing us at info@depawK9.com.  DePAW requires the Bordetella vaccine every 6 months since we have a large number of furry guests in our facility together. We have seen the number of kennel cough cases decrease significantly since requiring the vaccine every 6 months rather than just yearly. 

Feel free to bring an article of your clothing or blankie that smells "like home" to ease any anxiety your pet may experience being away from home! 


DAYCARE -

 

With the weather turning a bit colder, DePAW daycare is a great way to let your dog get some healthy and fun supervised exercise with their furry friends! No appointment ever necessary. Reasonable rates and letting your dog socialize with their own kind can lower their stress level and often eliminate unwanted behaviors at home. Check out our FB page for videos of what daycare looks like at DePAW! 

GROOMING -

 
Congratulations to our very own Shauna Burk of Bubbles & Barks Professional Grooming and her "Apollo" for their dog show wins this month in Iowa! We are so very proud of you!

Bubbles & Barks Professional Grooming is available by appointment only by calling 630.232.8663.
