NEW! ANONYMOUS QUESTIONS, CONCERNS, COMPLAINTS ETC
We always want everyone to feel fully comfortable and confident in us and encourage a Doors Always Open Policy for all members of the organization and encourage you to let us know of any questions, concerns, complaints, etc, that you may have. That said we do recognize that not everyone wishes to speak up for fear of consequences and wanted to give you a way in which to relay your message anonymously. We do ask for name and email, but that is only if you wish, and remind you that if we don’t have your information we cannot answer your query directly. Further, you should know that if you do report something against someone for inappropriate behavior that disrupts the organization or endangers the dogs, your information would be kept private from the accused regardless of if submitted anonymously or not.
Things to Remember: Updated 2/21/18
- NO human food is to be given to any dogs, EVER.
- Pick up all food bowls by end of shift and wash out, unless directed specifically to do otherwise. This is in the Dog 101, it encourages grazing. Give them the shift to eat, if they do not, pick it up.
- All clips should be clipped in the back of the runs for the water bowls at all times.
- Slip leads or leashes must be used at all times to bring dogs in and out from the yards.
- KONGS: Do not stuff the Kongs with food, this causes an issue where rancid food is left in them for days which is disgusting and could cause a digestive issue. If a Kong has ANY damage, throw it out, this poses an obstruction issue if the dog breaks off pieces and swallows it – Proper cleaning method is by soaking in bleach water in the sink and then rinsed until there is no bleach smell. Do not leave the toys to soak between shifts. They need to be cleaned, rinsed and laid out to dry.
- Please turn off the large fan, dishwasher, washer, and/or dryer whether or not the clothes/dishes are done when you leave. It is a fire hazard to leave them on unattended. If a cycle of the dishwasher is unable to be run, please hand wash the dishes in the bathroom and lay out on a towel over one for the wire crates to dry for the next shift. Please do not leave an excessive amount of dishes for the following shift.
- A Note on Doggy Field Trips: Please contact Julie and/or Chyanne for doggy field trips. We and the dogs would LOVE for more people to take our pups out on field trips. To dog friendly coffee shops or restaurants, the park if appropriate, etc, we just need to know ahead of time and make sure they don’t have appointments etc, that it’s appropriate for that specific dog, that you have the code to get in and out and that you’re fully trained. ALWAYS remember to note it in the log below with your name, the dog or dogs you’re taking, and a phone number you can be reached at. Remember only one dog per person, if you plan something for multiple dogs there must be one handler per dog, approved by us.
REMEMBER TO TEXT JULIE ANY MEDICAL CONCERN,
If you cannot reach her and need to speak to someone immediately
