Pet Care: KRON Channel 4 Interview with Mark Klaiman – Pet CampApril 12, 2012
Pet Camp is a day and overnight care facility for dogs and cats. It can take care of about 110 dogs and 28 cats. We have all sorts of fun and games and food and varieties of things to make this place your pets’ home away from home.
Yeah, they can hear you here, too. I bet it’s because all this food that you have. Now there’s a variety of foods you have here, too, right, for the pets? We stock 12 different types of dog food, we stock six different types of cat food, and more importantly, we’re happy to prepare pretty much anything an owner wants.
We’ve had people bring in canned pumpkin, frozen vegetables. All sorts of odds and ends. And we’re happy to take of it all for them. Okay, I like that. All kinds of different foods and meals. Now, these places that you actually keep the dogs are a little bit different.
They’re heated? Right, these are different kinds of places. They’re called runs. And what makes them different than most is that they’re all made out of plastic, not slag. They’re all heated with radiant heat which makes them really nice and warm and soft, and all night long we play classical music for the dogs.
So technically, it’s pretty peaceful environment for them all. We’ve had plenty of dogs in here that don’t speak English at home, so we’ve had to learn foreign commands. We have to learn commands in Hebrew, in Arabic, Spanish, and some of the Asian languages as well. It makes it a lot more fun for the dogs if we can speak their language from home.
Right now we’re watching the puppy play group. We run seven different play groups here everyday here. We run an active group, a gentle group, a little dog group, a senior citizen play group, and a small dog play group as well as our puppy play group.
