Furry Friends Resort & COVID-19
Here's What You Need To Know
We're OPEN for daycare, bathing, and boarding!
We want to thank you all so much for your love and support during this time away. Your words, comments, reviews, and encouragement has kept us going during these times. We are so excited to see your pup play away once again!
OUR NEW PROTOCOL
We are currently open for daycare, bathing, and boarding. If you have a reservation, please follow the below protocol:
We ask that you social distance yourself if you're waiting in line outside (6 feet apart as shown by our tape markers). Please be sure to also wear facial protection when handing over your dog to a staff member.
NOTE: Limitations do apply for boarding (please call for details!)
WHY WE RE-OPENED
We know so many of you are still working, especially those on the frontlines who cannot work from home and still need our support. It’s essential for us to open our doors for healthcare workers and other professionals who still need our services while they are at work.
Puppy socialization is SO important. Cuyamaca Animal Hospital is seeing numerous new puppy appointments on a daily basis, which means lots of new puppies are likely not getting the socialization they need to blossom into happy and well-behaved adult dogs. This can lead to many problems, which we obviously would love to prevent.
Dogs thrive on routine and mental stimulation. We’ve heard from many of our clients and loved ones that dogs (and humans) are suffering from more anxiety as a result of our dogs being thrown out of whack in regards to their routine.
Our dogs’ routines will again be severely impacted when this is over, which can lead to separation anxiety and other anxieties as they re-learn to be away from their owners. Doggie daycare can be a great way for them to learn how to ease back into a day that doesn’t involve being around their owners 24/7.
1. CAN MY DOG GET COVID-19?
While there has been one dog in the US who tested positive for the virus, we would like to emphasize the fact that if this virus was highly contagious in animals, we would be seeing MANY more cases. Please note that well over 1 million people in the US have had COVID-19, majority of which have pets, and we’ve only seen one positive test, with possible minor symptoms that could have been unrelated. Thousands of cats and dogs have been tested from households with people with COVID 19 & all, except 2 cats & 1 dog have been negative. There has not been one documented case of a person getting COVID 19 from a dog or cat in the entire world.
2. CAN MY PET GIVE ME COVID-19?
There has not been ANY documented case of a person getting COVID 19 from a pet, even as a fomite. All transmission has been human to human. Thousands of cats and dogs have been tested from households with people with COVID 19 & all, except 2 cats & 1 dog have been negative. There has not been one documented case of a person getting COVID 19 from a dog or cat in the entire world.
3. ARE YOU TAKING ANY OTHER PRECAUTIONS BESIDES THE NEW PROTOCOL?
Yes, our staff has undergone thorough training on proper sanitization techniques and protective gear.
Note: If you do have serious concerns about bringing your dog to daycare, we suggest waiting until the quarantine has been fully lifted and you are fully comfortable with bringing your doggie to visit.
