Summer Fun at Purr'n Pooch and Dog-Friendly Events at the Jersey Shore

The tail-wagging fun has yet to stop this summer! These past few months have been jam-packed with exciting activities and the pups and kitties are loving it – especially the mild temperatures, which have made outdoor playtime even more enjoyable.  We were curious to find out what your pets have been doing all summer long, so we held our “Paws” for Summer Fun Photo Contest from July 21 to August 10. We saw so many adorable pictures of pups lounging by the pool and on the porch; basking in the sun out in the backyard; cooling off in the shady garden; playing with the garden hose, Frisbees and chew toys; and taking a bubble bath to clean up from a long day of outdoor fun. Our furry friends just love to soak up the summer fun!

Summer Fun at Purr'n Pooch and Dog-Friendly Events at the Jersey ShoreWhen your pets are not at home spending fun in the sun with you, they’re enjoying lots of summertime activities with us here at Purr’n Pooch. Splashing and paddling around in our freshwater pools is a favorite for the pups. This summer we added a new and exciting amenity to our Wall location – an indoor pool for aquatic water exercise. It’s already a hit! When it’s time to wind down, the pups relax in the shade on the playground or in our air conditioned suites. They also enjoy playing with KONG® toys filled with frozen peanut butter and treats. The kitties are purrfectly content basking in the sun near the windows and playing on the jungle gym, rock walls and waterfalls. We’ve celebrated quite a few birthdays and other special occasions with private and monthly parties, featuring Jodes Happy Tail yogurt treats for dessert – a sweet treat! On Saturdays, we have our training and agility classes, which take place both indoors and outdoors.

Book your pet’s summer fun with us soon! Our swimming pools are open through mid-September and sometimes longer depending on the weather.  Call us in Tinton Falls at 732.842.4949 or in Wall at 732.528.8100.

Dogs Cool Down and Stay Fit at Purr’n Pooch’s Water Parks

PNP-June-Poool-Blog-Post

It’s summer and you’re excited to the hit the water for a much anticipated swim. Winter has really taken a toll on us, including the dogs. When heading out the door, towel and sunblock in hand, you probably get that sad, perplexed look from your pup that says, “Come on. Take me too!”. Sound familiar?

We love the sun-sational days of summer and agree with your dog. You don’t have to leave your best friend behind while you hit the pool or beach to relish in another gorgeous weekend on the Jersey Shore. Stop feeling guilty and check out your local pet care facility for water activities that will accommodate your best friend.

At Purr’n Pooch our boarding and daycare dogs get to play and swim in our supervised outdoor and indoor water parks. We offer several freshwater pools and water elements like fountains and waterfalls for their enjoyment.

Water activities are not only a source of entertainment for your dog, but they also offer real health benefits. They help your pup to cool off, socialize, get in a cardio vascular workout, and enjoy a good night’s sleep. And, best of all, dogs of all ages from puppies to seniors can enjoy swimming as a healthy, low impact body workout. So while you’re oceanside this summer, register your pup for some watery fun with friends poolside.

A word from our friend Mickey’s mom about his summer fun at PNP…

“Mickey loves to play in the Purr’n Pooch pool. I say, “Mickey do you want to go to the pool club?” and he jumps in the car. When Mickey comes home, he is tired but still makes sure to tell me all bout his day. He actually makes cute barking noises like he is explaining who he has played with and what he did! He goes twice a week and enjoys his dips in the pool and time playing with friends.” Kathy Hader
