Marshfield (OnFocus) – Two of Marshfield’s famous cheese-named “dumpster puppies” were reunited recently at Loyal Dog Boarding and Day Care. Though they hadn’t seen each other in a while, the connection between siblings Gouda and Muenster (now Oscar) was instant.
“All MAPS adopters get a list of trainers, groomers & boarders in the area. Gouda & Oscar’s owners both found us from that list,” said owner Natalie Brown. “Gouda is here every week for daycare & Oscar comes more periodically for overnight boarding. This was the first time they’ve ever been here at the same time.”
Located on a working dairy farm on a dead end road with a lot of land for dogs to explore and plenty of couches for the long naps that follow, Loyal Dog Boarding and Day Care is an “in-home” (no kennels) boarding and day care business where the dogs have the run of the house and the property (properly supervised of course).
Gouda arrived early in the morning for a daycare day and Oscar was dropped off in the early afternoon for an overnight boarding reservation.
“Kaitlin Loberg, MAPS manager, is a dear friend of mine. We graduated Vet Tech school together in Madison and both relocated to this area at the same time,” said Brown. “She kept me apprised during the dumpster puppy incident & I let her know when we got any dumpster puppy clients because she likes to keep in touch with them.”
“They were together all afternoon. Gouda was a little hesitant at first but she’s a more reserved dog in general compared to Oscar. But after a couple minutes of sniffing & playful wrestling they were inseparable,” said
Brown reminds dog owners of the importance of socialization & exercise.
“They’re key components to a healthy, happy & well adjusted dog,” she said. “MAPS has lots of resources available to help pet owners raise well rounded dogs & we’re just honored to make the list. The Marshfield area is lucky to have a dedicated animal shelter like MAPS & MAPS is lucky to have Kaitlin Loberg at the helm.”
