Turkey Day 5K and your furkid’s workout plan…

Everybody is planning for the holiday – the grocery store is a madhouse, you’re packing to travel to family across the country or you’re secretly looking forward to the most fun 5k of the year.  Any way you look at it – the holidays are here and we’re all doing something aRunning-with-Dogbout it!

Here at North Metro Pet Services, we are getting ready for a busy week pet sitting and dog walking for those of you who have trusted your furkids with us – we’re happy to spend our holiday with your furry friends while you’re out visiting family, traveling or getting in that first weekend at the slopes.  We’re grateful that you trust us with your furry family while you spend happy times with your human family!

One new thing for us this year is the Turkey Day 5k in Broomfield!  We can’t wait to get up in the dark, put on every layer we can and go spend the morning with a few thousand of our neighbors!  Ok – well maybe some of those things would be better if it was going to be 60 degrees instead of 25 but no complaints here, it’s going to be fun!  It’s our first Thanksgiving 5K and we promise it won’t be the last!routine

As we prepare for this week, we wanted to remind you that we offer dog jogging services.  Do you tend to run indoors during the cold weather?  Does your furkid need to get out a little more?  Would a 1 or 2 mile jog benefit both your pet’s daily life and your after work sanity?   Contact us today to schedule a run 1 or 3 or 5 times a week!  We’ll come by in the daylight hours and take your furkid out for some fresh air!

The first Snow of the Season! Who’s walking your furkid today?

20151111_112954We’ve been talking a bunch about holiday travel and maintaining your furkid’s routine during these busy times but your furkids have daily routines too!  Could they be more active?  More consistent?  With the cold weather fast approaching, are you less and less likely to go on that long walk your furkid loves?  Let us help!20151111_113016_010

We’re super excited for the first snow!  It’s such a beautiful thing if you step back, forget about traffic and cold and just look at the beauty of it all.  We are aware, however, that with the snow brings dark afternoons and evenings, cold weather and super busy schedules – basketball, volleyball, hockey, wrestling, gymnastics, dance, holiday parties, holiday shopping – you name it, it’s happening right now.  Let us take one very important task off your plate – once a week, once a day, twice a day – we’re here for you and your furkid all winter!

We can take your furkid on that long walk during the warmest part of the day while you’re at work so you don’t have to venture out for so long in the dark!  We’re also here for those long year end work days and exciting holiday events that take you away from home during unusual times.  Your furkids will thank you for the extra love – we know it!




Holiday Travel can be awesome for your furkids too!

Working hard!Hey everybody, we’re excited to be officially launching North Metro Pet Services, LLC today!  Seth has finished his responsibilities with this old career and has officially moved to full time Furkid caretaker!  We are enjoying our first few clients and meeting lots of new furkids along the way!

Now that we’re officially launched you will see us out and about more often – maybe even in your neighborhood!

Now that Halloween is behind us and we’ve experienced the time change, holiday planning is officially here!  Are you heading out of town to see family?   Do you have plans that span more than 8 hours away from home but will still be in town?  Let us help!  We’ll fill up fast so schedule early but we’re here for overnight or multi-day services and single potty break visits.  Let us help you make this holiday season a little lower stress for you and your furkids!


Furs need to socialize too! Exciting news!

Casey here – if you haven’t guessed, I’m the North 10605571_0_600_400Metro blogger – apparently I just have more to say!  I know what you’re thinking…and it’s probably true, I’m the…..verbal…..one of this group.

Anyway, we’ve got some exciting stuff coming up.  Launch day is right around the corner and the holidays are fast approaching.  We’re running the Broomfield Turkey Day 5K (here’s to hoping it’s not zero degrees that day!) and we’re hosting a Yappy Hour for the Arbour Commons community.  If you live in Arbour Commons and you’re reading this – please come and eat some food!

Yappy HourWhat’s a Yappy Hour?  It’s a fun event where you get to bring your furkid and socialize with other furkids and furparents.   Generally there are treats for the furs and humans, drinks of some sort, prizes and lots of doggy kisses!

We can’t wait to host this event and meet all the furkids we haven’t already met in our community!  Want us to host a Yappy Hour in your community?  We’d LOVE to!  Call, text or stalk us in the grocery store – we can’t wait to meet you!

Record Temps & Winning Football Teams!


Gobroncos pet Broncos!  What a weird weekend for football!  We’re happy to cheer on the Orange & Blue alongside each of you but did you go to the game?  Next time schedule a potty walk and enjoy tailgating and post-gaming with all your friends before you head home!

Today we set a record high in the Denver area; I don’t know about you but I’m super happy to be wearing a tshirt in the middle of October and secretly ready for hoodie weather.   All that aside, the cold is coming.  We’re happy to bundle up and play fetch with your furkid or take them on a walk or a jog!  We’re geared up and ready for snow, rain, leaves, ice and that 4pm darkness.  Need somebody to take care of one of your afternoon/evening winter walks?  Call us today and get on our afternoon schedule!

Planning your holiday travel arrangements & don’t want to board your furkids?  Call us for pricing anpet sitting menud availability! Let us help you keep your pet’s routine!  We have pet sitting (both overnight and non-overnight), dog walking and house sitting slots available.

Furkid report cards, services menu & frozen custard…

My name is Casey (yep, I’m the other half of this show!) and I’m a hipster kitty cat wanna be!  See, I found this cute picture just for your viewing pleasure.

Why am I a hipster kitty cat wanna be you ask?  Well, I’ve been spending all this time getting our documentation and paperwork ready for you so I thought, wouldn’t it be cool if I looked like I was a hipster writer doing her thing at Starbucks?  Ok, so hipsters maybe avoid Starbucks but I’m not a hipster, I’m just a regular joe(ette) getting things done!

We’re super excited for our launch day but, as you can imagine, there’s much to get ready so that you and your furkids can experience first rate service from North Metro Pet Services.  This week we’re focused on our service documentation – keeping it short and sweet – and our Furparent contact mission.  We’ve decided that we want to offer many levels of contact so that you, the Furparent, can be super low stress while we’re caring for your furkids.

Our Furkid Report Card is coming along nicely and we’ve outlined several levels of other contact that you’ll choose from so that you receive your ideal touch points from North Metro Pet Services during the service visits.  We’ll be offering text updates, photo updates via text, email updates and even Skype or Facetime for the vacation and overnight services.  Our Furkid Report Card will be a standard souvenir from every single visit.

Well, gotta run – more writing to do and a service menu to finalize!  Oh..I bet you’re wondering about the frozen custard.  Well, I don’t eat much sugar but it sounds good – maybe you should have some for me?

Until next time…
