The Future Of Animal Care
Right Here in Central Ohio

Come on out.  Bring apples.

Sammi's Mom Says...
"Making sure our dog is
happy and comfortable while
we're away is very important to us,
and Pawsitive Energy
goes above and beyond
"happy and comfortable".
We know our pup
is getting exercise, making friends,
and most importantly, being loved on... while we're away.

The enormous amounts of knowledge they have
about animals assures me
that our Sammi is safe -- and
the pure joy she displays
whenever she sees Lori
means we can enjoy vacations
without worrying about her for a
single second.

The "Bed & Biscuit" is
truly the best boarding situation
I've ever seen
and we'd never leave
our dog with anyone else."

Anya Beaupre, Hilliard

What's So Different About the B&B?

Carmine and Poppa
We Unleash Their Inner Puppy!
With Over 20 Years Experience in Animal Care & Rescue

In addition to giving each dog lots of one~on~one attention,
one of our main goals is to provide uniquely individualized care.

We make sure each dog gets the amount and type of play
and exercise that's appropriate for her age, temperament and condition
(with some dogs spending up to four hours
each day in their supervised playgroups),
balanced with the right amount of rest and quiet time.

Play groups are small and very carefully matched.
They're made up of dogs who really enjoy each other's company ~
there's no bullying or intimidation.

To Read This on a White Background, Please Click Here

Tallulah

We monitor the dogs constantly throughout the day so that
we can tell immediately who needs more or less rest
or exercise, extra one~on~one time or really special TLC.

For dogs who are more interested in being around people,
we have private areas where they can get the attention
they need without having to put up
with our rowdier clientele.

This is a very labor intensive way of caring for your dog,
and it can only be offered by a very committed,
dedicated, carefully supervised, and well educated staff.

JillianandCooper   Eily and Izzy - Guard Dogs
** Named "Best Place to Pamper Your Dog" by Ohio Magazine, January 2007!**

We feel that this is the best type of environment possible
for dogs who enjoy the companionship of other dogs,
and who love lots of human attention,
being outdoors,
and playing to their hearts' content.

We also feel that this is the best type of environment
for dogs whose guardians appreciate a natural,
holistic philosophy of animal care,
and who like knowing that their dog is being taken care of
by someone who is passionate about what she does,
extremely knowledgeable,
and who doesn't think in terms of what's good for the business
~
but in terms of what's best for the animals.

Of course, all of our holistic philosophies apply to B&B care.

** Pawsitive Energy is home to over 80 animals, almost all rescues or "hand-me-downs." There are currently more than 60 dogs living with us. All of our animals have the promise of a home for life. The Day Camp and Bed & Biscuit help to fund our non-profit sanctuary. **

*Plain canned pumpkin or cooked oatmeal are other things you can add to your dog's food to help soothe an upset tummy.

*Acidophilos and products like PetFlora also help restore the balance of good to bad bacteria.

*Raw, unfiltered, organic Apple Cider Vinegar (with mother) is a miracle cure for anything fungal, viral or bacterial.

*For an excellent herbal remedy, try Slippery Elm power. It's used for all types of digestive upsets. The powder is available in bulk at most natural food stores. Feed 1 teaspoon per 10 lbs of body weight, mixing with a little honey and warm water.

Bed & Biscuit Tips

To Make Your Dog's
Pawsitive Energy Experience
the Best It Can Be!

We're very happy that your dog is going to be
staying with us at the B&B or attending our Day Camp,
and we'd like for his/her visit to be perfect in every way.
We're including this list of tips and suggestions to cover all
the little details that go into creating the
Total Pawsitive Energy Experience!

Pawsitive Energy is located at
15649 Myers Road, Marysville, Ohio 43040
Telephone: 937/243-5226 614/774-3472

For Directions to the Farm, Click Here.

Checking In
Please feel free to call as often as you'd like while your dog is staying with us. If you can't reach me, just leave a message with a contact phone number and I'll be in touch as soon as possible to let you know how your pup is doing. If you don't hear from me within a few hours, it generally means we're very busy with the dogs. Feel free to keep calling until you reach me.

The First Few Days Back Home
Don't be surprised if your dog spends a few days lounging around the house after his/her B&B stay or Day Camp visit. All the fresh air and exercise, as well as all the new sights, sounds and smells will generally wear him/her out ~ but then, that's probably why you chose Pawsitive Energy in the first place!

It's not unusual for a dog to have some type of minor digestive upset when s/he gets home from any kennel or boarding facility -- or even after having a dog sitter. Just like when we humans go on vacation, the change in food, routine, exercise, and any stress - even fun stress! - can lead to a disruption in the balance of intestinal bacteria, and that can cause soft stool and diarrhea.

If your dog tends to have a sensitive tummy, it's best to provide your own food so your dog's digestive system has one less thing to adjust to.

It's also often helpful to feed light meals for the first couple of days to help ease your dog's transition back into her old routine. You can even add live culture, plain full fat yogurt to help increase beneficial intestinal flora to get his tummy back in shape.

If your dog has not been exposed to other dogs enough to develop a strong immune system, s/he will be more susceptible to the common viruses that go around in any group environment - kind of like a baby in day care or children when they first go back to school in the fall. These are generally very mild upper respiratory infections, eye irritations, etc., that may take a quick visit to the vet for treatment. The good news is that the more your dog is exposed, the stronger her immune system becomes - again, just like a baby.

Remember that we have horses, and horses have a distinctive smell! While I happen to think it's the best smell in the world, not everyone agrees or wants their dog coming home smelling like a farm critter. In addition, the dogs spend a lot of time playing outside, so they do get dirty. (Some people judge how good of a time their dog had by how dirty s/he is when they pick him/her up!) If you'd like, we would be happy to bathe your dog before s/he goes home. Just let us know you'd like to schedule a bath and your dog will come home "Ready for His/Her Own Bed."

If the possibility of any of these things is a concern that isn't outweighed by the fun and special attention your dog will have while s/he's with us, you may want to consider hiring a sitter rather than boarding your dog. To us, the most important thing is for every dog to stay whereever s/he will be happiest!

Never hesitate to call if you have concerns.

Veterinary Care
Please make sure you specify an amount for emergency care in the event I am not able to reach you. Based on our experience with our own dogs, we recommend a minimum of $500.

If an amount is not specified, I will use my best judgment regarding veterinary care. We will use either a local vet or MedVet, depending on the nature of the emergency. We will also contact your vet for his/her opinion, records, etc., if appropriate.

I do not hesitate to take a dog to the vet if I have any concerns, particularly in the case of older dogs or puppies. We are extremely careful with these dogs to make sure they don't get overly tired while they're with us, but just being away from home, even if they're having a great time, can cause digestive upsets, respiratory infections, etc., and it's always best to catch these things early.

We do not require specific vaccinations. There is much ongoing disagreement in the veterinary community regarding the safety and effectiveness of different vaccination protocols. For this reason, I feel the decision regarding vaccinations should be between you, your dog, and your vet, and not something that any boarding facility should mandate. Please read more at "How We're "Holistic."

Because of our natural and holistic approach, we find that our business attracts clients who take the absolute best care of their dogs, and everyone who stays at the B&B is in excellent health.

Food & Treats
We feed Holistic Blend dog food. It's made from human grade ingredients, with no chemical preservatives, fillers or by-products. Dogs' tummies seem to adjust to it very well, with little digestive upset.

We are also happy to feed the food you provide (especially if its a healthy, natural food ~ by the way, it's very helpful for us if you label all food containers, scoops, etc.). Raw diets are not a problem.

A Note About Flea Treatments
For the safety of your dog's playmates, we request that any spot-on flea products are applied at least one week prior to your dog's B&B stay or Day Camp visit.

We do not allow dogs who attend Pawsitive Energy to wear flea collars.

Collars, ID Tags & Leashes
For safety, we use only plastic snap collars. If your dog wears any other type of collar, we will replace it with one of ours to wear while s/he is staying at the B & B. If possible, please take your buckle or chain collar and/or leash with you when you leave.

Your dog will also wear a Pawsitive Energy ID tag when s/he is with us. Please feel free to keep our tags on his/her collar after his/her stay. We maintain a record of all our guests and are happy to serve as a back up contact if your dog were ever to get lost. (We once got a 1:00 am call from Vashon Island - off the coast of Washington state - and were able to help reunite the dog with his guardians within an hour.)

Bedding & Toys
While the beds we use are pretty comfortable, most dogs appreciate a nice soft piece of home to snuggle into. We suggest bringing a blanket or old bed ~ something you won't mind if it goes home torn, chewed or otherwise damaged ~ or just totally annihilated. Ditto for toys.

Extra-Special Services
We now offer: · All About Me! Days· Basic Obedience and Manners · Baths & Basic Grooming · Massage with Aroma and Music Therapy · Natural Dog and Cat Food · Dogs Available for Adoption · and & On-Line Video Diary
