The Roanoker May/June 2017 - 40

Best Pet Store Chain/Franchise

Doggie Playcare
Readers awarded City Dogs Boarding
and Playcare Platinum in the 2017 category for Best Doggie Day Care/Overnight Service. Owner Lynda Knezovich
loves offering dogs what she calls "playcare," where dog parents can drop off
their furry babies and rest easy knowing
they're taken care of and playing hard
with their four-legged friends.
"It feels great!" Knezovich says of her
Platinum reader award. "I think it's especially rewarding because I know it comes
from my customers. It feels good to
know our customers like us that much!"
City Dogs playcare is available every
day except Sundays, and also offers
overnight boarding (with playcare days
included at no extra cost). The staff will
test temperaments to make sure the
dogs will all play nice together, letting
owners rest easy that their pooch will
be treated like royalty.
City Dogs will soon move to a new location for more space, as her business
becomes even more popular. With her
moving plans still on track, the new location will open in early May. Due to customer requests, City Dogs will soon add
grooming services to the list. In addition
to grooming, the new space will include

a separate play area for dogs who may
not want to play with others, as well as
private suites with televisions and dog
cameras.
"I've had so many friends and customers with concerns about leaving
their dog with strangers," Knezovich
says. "But they told me if we had a private suite with doggie cameras so they
can watch their dogs anytime, they'd
bring them in, and I thought it was a
great idea!"
City Dogs is open for tours and visitors anytime, without need for invitation
or appointment. As a dog owner for her
entire life, Knezovich says she wanted
an open door policy that invites guests
in rather than having to wait to be seen
or turned away at the door. She's excited for the new location and the facility's
practical layout.
A fun fact about City Dogs: With a few
of her staff working with rescue animals,
if they see a dog languishing at the rescue for a long amount of time, City Dogs
will take them in and foster them until
they're adopted. Knezovich believes this
is one of many ways she can repay her
community.
