Welcome to Smarter than your Dog!

To our customers and community locally: 3/24/2020

During this evolving health situation, the safety and well-being of our team members, customers and their furry family members are our main priority. We greatly care about our communities and want to do our part to keep you healthy, keep our employees healthy and help minimize the spread of the virus. In that spirit, Smarter than your Dog has made the difficult decision to close daycare, grooming, boarding and training services for at least the next two weeks to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We make this decision now as a result of Governor Inslee’s announcement to stay at home. This is obviously a fluid situation, so we’ll be monitoring and adjusting our plans and timeline accordingly. 

While many of us join STYD for dog socialization and pack development, quite a few families use our services out of necessity. For this reason we would like to extend our hand to customers who need care while they are providing essential services for our community or for emergency situations. For details regarding what this would look like, we encourage you to email us at:  info@smarterthanyourdog.com. We can ensure your pet would be well cared for, but we would like the opportunity to talk to you individually since this will look different from our traditional model. 

We will continue to update you as this situation unfolds. Smarter than your Dog’s website, phone messages and Google profile will reflect our available services in real time. As you know, we care greatly for the well being of our dogs and customers. We intend to move responsibly through this process, yet maintain our relationships with you once we are able to commence services. Please know we will be up and running at full capacity as soon as we know Skagit and Island county’s Covid-19 cases are trending in a positive direction. 

All of us at Smarter than your Dog will miss you greatly. Our heartfelt wish is to see you return to us healthy in the near future!

Be safe, Be healthy, Be Smarter than your Dog
