DOGS, DOGS, DOGZ, DOGZ, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.
Yet another thing to add to our growing list of shit Park Slope needs badly: a KILLER doggie daycare.
Now look, before we knew any better, we used to take Oliver to Dog's Den...BAD IDEA JEANS. The dude now has a scar on his nose to remind him of that horrible time, thanks to some bitch assed dog that got into a fight with him one day and tried to chomp his nose off.
Also, everyone who works there (MOSTLY) could care fuck all about dogs. They need a job and that's it (and in case you're wondering, they get paid minimum wage...and I know this because one day when I was waiting for my dog to be brought up, someone thought it was a good idea to conduct an interview in the mothefucking waiting room out front). I actually think I saw a job listing for this place once, and nowhere does it say: MUST LOVE DOGS. They don't really give a crap and it shows.
Paws in Paradise is actually way the fuck nicer...and everyone who works there is very nice. And in fairness, Oliver has been there a few times and seemed to enjoy himself. But for some reason, there seem to mostly be smaller dogs there...and its just not very big...and I just always get the sense that when I drop Oliver off he's like: AYFKMWTS??? WHERE IS THE A-C-T-I-O-N.
I went once to look at that Place on Douglass (I don't even care enough to google the name right now) and it looked disgusting, so I never went back.
Man, we went to this place back when we lived in the city called The Paw Spot, and it was amazeballs. It was clean and beautiful, and everyone who worked there was crazytown about dogs. You got the sense that if they were not working at a daycare, they'd be at a vet's office, or a pet store, or somewhere where they could just be around dogs all day. So yeah...I'm not really so thrilled with the Park Slope doggie daycare sitch.
What about you? Do you doggie daycare it?
