Thanks to the City of Cape Town and National Government, @Frits Pet Hotel and Daycare Centre have been granted permission to allow dogs to get some exercise during lockdown in their 2400 square metre playground.
Most pet owners, fortunate enough to stay in apartments that approve pets, are really struggling with the space constraints during lockdown.
Due to customer demand and requests as well as the overall health of animals staying in small spaces, @Frits Pet Hotel and Daycare Centre have been granted permission by the City of Cape Town and National Government to take in dogs to help exercise them in their 2400 square metre playground.
This is a wonderful initiative and one many frustrated dogs will be pleased to hear about, but please note the following:
- Please do not leave your home unnecessarily. Only bring your dog in if you see that he/ she really needs to get some exercise and is showing signs of anxiety and distress.
- Please try and bring your dog just after feeding time so that it is more likely to use their toilet instead of yours. This will bring some relief to the sanitation in apartment blocks.
- Please be mindful of the purpose of the lockdown and that is to limit movement of people. Therefore, should you find it necessary to go and buy essential groceries, drop off your dog during the same trip. You can also buy dog food from them when you take in your dog.
- You can book your dog in at @Frits daily between 09h00 and 15h00.
What do you need to do to get access to @Frits?
- Humans will not be allowed onto the premises to drop off their dog without a mask or a face cover.
- Owners must please disinfect their hands at the gate and the soles of their shoes in the F10 footbath.
- Owners must please spray themselves with the F10 SC at the front door.
- Owners must please bring a proof of vaccination certificate with them.
- Access will then be granted.
Please respect the @Frits staff as they are really in the front line for your dogs’ wellbeing. Please keep a safe distance, follow the hygiene steps and help them to keep both their staff and your dog safe.
To spread the love, should you know of friends or family whose dogs are really struggling with confinement issues, please forward this message on to them and their first day will be on @Frits. All they need to do is show this message at reception to claim their free day (owners must please bring a proof of vaccination certificate with them).
Give them a call on 021 200 4244 for more information, or visit their Facebook page for updates.
