Pet Spotlight: Tyler “PupperNutter” Wither’s Story


Doc and I adopted Tyler in 2006 from the Winchester SPCA. Her story is an endearing one for an awesome dog that has been our #1 pup for over 10 years now!

The trip to get Tyler started out like any typical engaged couple’s journey to the animal shelter. I distinctly remember saying, “We’re not getting a dog. We’re just looking.” Famous last words, huh?

So, we looked around the kennels. We saw some amazing dogs but none that really fit into our lives. Then, in the last cage sat Tyler. Her four-month-old tail was wagging as if we were old friends. I turned to Doc and said “If we were going to get a dog… We’d get this dog.” She was, and is, so cute!

So, I went to the front desk to ask if we could take her out on the leash and play with her in the yard. The kennel attendant told us that she had been recently abandoned in an apartment and she hadn’t been signed over to the pound for adoption yet. We would later find out that her shrill bark was the most likely reason she was brought into the puppy pound. Phew… Just saying. So, disappointed, we walked back to the kennel to say goodbye to this adorable dog. Just then, as if fate had sent us to her and her to us, the gentleman talking to the chihuahua puppy next to her said that she was his dog and asked us, “Do you want her?”

And the rest is history.

Tyler has taught us so many lessons about patience and understanding. We are so grateful to have her in our lives.

Update: We’re Just Getting Better!

Hello Valued Doc’s Doggy Daycare Clients,

As we celebrate our first year here, we want to take a moment to look back and reflect on what we have accomplished.

This past year has been amazing! We have met countless wonderful people and pets. Our awesome clients, that’s YOU, have helped to elevate our little operation from a dream to the best darn Doggy Daycare in the Winchester area.

We cannot thank you enough for trusting us with your fur babies and for not being quiet about it. Our positive five-star reviews are the most common reason that people contact us for a Meet & Greet. Thank you!

As we’ve grown our business, we have reached several important milestones. To continue providing excellent and attentive service, we find it necessary to institute a couple of new policy changes. Please feel free to contact us by phone, private message, or on our Facebook page if you have any questions about the new policies.

As of June 1st:

Drop-off, Pick-up, and daycare hours will be instituted to help us create a predictable environment for our family and our boarding clients. Daycare will be available from 7am to 7pm. Drop-off times will be between 4pm and 7pm, and pick-up times will be between 7am and 10am.

We understand that these hours may not always be convenient for everyone, and we are certainly willing to flex outside those hours, but please understand that a daycare charge will be added to the stay.

All clients dropping off their dogs for daycare or overnight boarding will be required to furnish a hard copy of the dog’s vaccination record, be kept on file, showing the following up-to-date immunizations:

  • DA2PL-Parvo
  • Bordetella (Kennel Cough)
  • Canine Influenza
  • Rabies
  • DHPPV (Canine Distemper)

All dogs arriving for care at Doc’s Doggy Daycare must be current on flea and tick preventive treatments. If we determine during the visit the dog needs preventative treatment, we will apply a tick or flea treatment, of our choosing, at the owner’s expense. Currently, we are using Tick Off from Young Living Essential Oils.

All clients dropping off their dogs for daycare or overnight boarding will be required to review and sign a liability waiver annually. This document will help to communicate the rules and policies here at Doc’s Doggy Daycare so that everyone has the same expectations of the services they will receive.

Our Tyler Girl 🙂

Thank you for your understanding and support. We truly would not be here without our amazing clients and their furry family members. We look forward to helping you with your pet sitting needs in 2018 and beyond!

Peace, Love, and Puppy Dreams,

Megann and Ross “Doc” Wither
