“Your dog goes to school?!”
I get that question a lot and I’m proud to say yes, he does! And he enjoys school more than any other human kid!
Because his school, which is called Doggie Retreat, doesn’t do typical boring school stuff where they simply learn. The doggos there actually have fun and have the best time of their lives.
So what is it about Doggie Retreat that Chandler loves?
GETTING PICKED UP BY THE DOGGIE SCHOOL BUS
On mornings when he’s going to school, he gets extra excited. The moment he sees me prepare his lunchbox, he knows it’s a school day and he gets himself all prepped up.
And when he sees the school bus, it’s as if I don’t exist anymore!
MEETING HIS FURIENDS
Just like us humans, they also have their own circle of friends in school. I just love seeing how his social life is thriving! Haha.
HE IS THE SELF-ELECTED CLASS PRESIDENT
I pack treats and food for him in his lunchbox and as it turns out, he shares them with his classmates! Because of this, I keep on saying that he looks like the Class President! Haha.
Chandler gets overly excited and tends to bark a lot when I walk him, but when he’s with Doggie Retreat, he doesn’t only cooperate, he can even go on pack walkies!
And most importantly, he’s happy!
It’s like a school field trip whenever they go to the beach. I love seeing Chandler’s and all the doggos’ smiles whenever they’re there. Needless to say, it seems like these doggos are living better lives than their pawrents who are working hard while they enjoy the beach!
THE BARKDAY PAWTIES
Yup, you’ve read that right. They celebrate the doggos’ birthday parties – with cake, party hats, and all!
THE STAFF IS LIKE FAMILY
As a pawrent, I know trusting other people with our furkids could be challenging. But time and time again, I’ve seen how the Doggie Retreat staff is more than just mere people who look after him. They’re family. They shower him with love and care as if Chandler is their own dog. That’s why I trust them wholeheartedly whenever Chandler is under their care.
Choosing to send Chandler to Doggie Retreat school is one of the best decisions I’ve made as a pawrent. It’s not just a matter of him having a place to stay or having company while we’re at work or on a holiday. It’s him being happy and having a great time. And now you can see why.
