Feeding Changes: Effective 07/05/2021

    Attention Valued LOPCI Clients:
    Due to staff limitations and entering the busy summer season, Leader of the Pack will no longer be providing feeding for dogs in our daycare program. We ask you to please feed your dog before dropping off and after pickup.
    Dogs that are in overnight boarding will be fed twice a day, in the morning and evening only. There will be no afternoon feedings for boarding dogs. We ask that you please feed your dog before dropping off for their boarding stay, and after you return home on pick up day.
    We will continue to administer medications as prescribed during the afternoon. Dogs who need afternoon feedings due to medicine administration, will still be fed.
    Boarding and daycare puppies that are under 8 months of age can be fed in the afternoon upon special request.
    All Al la Carte items will be done once daily in the afternoon only. This includes frosty paws, peanut butter Kongs, and playtimes. Please keep in mind playtimes are subject to availability.
    Please be sure to bring in your pets’ food in a secure container. Only bring the proper allotment of food for your pets stay plus an extra feeding or two. Please do not bring food in the purchased bag, or in large containers that contain more food than the stay requires! Food must be in an airtight container.
    The safety of your pet is our number one priority, and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
    Thank you for your continued support!
    Leader of the Pack Canine Institute Management Team
