Track Doggie

Since we opened ULD in 2010, we have been tracking how many dogs enter our doors each day for daycare. Our first full month of tracking, back in October of 2010, 164 dogs came for daycare. I received "Track Doggie" for March 2013, which is what we call this report. I was amazed by what I saw. In the month of March 2013, 1,712 dogs came for daycare!! We also just started recently tracking how many boarding dogs we have each day as well, and in the month of March 2013, 1,025 dogs came to board. So a total of 2,737 dogs passed through our doors in March, an average of 88 dogs a day. I remember when we first opened I prayed to have 30 dogs a day, and now we have on average almost 100. How can we do what we do you might ask? If you look at the graph, there were several months when we ranged from 100-1000 dogs a month. We learned a lot in these months. We created policies and procedures, staff training guides, attended pet seminars, and first aid classes. I knew once people heard about our facility, came in, and experienced the difference of the ULD team, we would get busy. And we did. My manager Abi, and assistant manager Natalie have been with me since day 1, and we truly have created a family at ULD. I attribute our success to our amazing and dedicated staff. They love all of the dogs so much and I can say without any hesitation all of us love coming to work at ULD each day. I also attribute our success to our loyal clients. We would not be where we are today without you. Your reviews, your recommendations, and the fact that you come back to ULD day after day, week after week, makes us who we are, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for reading. ;-) Please email me at if you ever have any questions or concerns, as I am here for you.
