Fun Event 13 June

We will be at a fun event for all dog lovers on Saturday, 13 June.

The Ultimate Dog Festival is at Columbia Park in Torrance from 10AM until 4PM. Billed as “Bringing canine sports and wellness to your community,” the event will have agility events, disc catching, flyball, and small dog racing for fun (don’t worry–it isn’t the same as greyhound racing). For canine wellness, look for booths about acupuncture, canine chiropractic, conventional veterinary services, massage (with our masseuse Earlene), and oral health care.

We will have a booth at the event. Come on by for free stuff and to ask questions about our wonderful pet resort.

Columbia Park is in Torrance at 4045 190th Street, 90504.

For more information, see the
Ultimate Dog Website.

Join Us For A Fun Event This Sunday

Event: Lomita Obedience Training Club’s 2nd Annual Rally Throwdown
Date: Sunday, October 6th
Time: 9AM-2PM
Where: Highridge Park, Rolling Hills Estates

Come join us at Highridge park in Rolling Hills for the 2nd Annual Lomita Obedience Training Club's Rally Throwdown benefiting America's VetDogs. We'll have a booth with free goodies along with some give-aways. Our masseuse-extraodinaire Earlene will also be at the event offering massages and pupilates sessions for $10-20 each. Highridge Park is located at 29034 Highridge Road, off of Hawthorne Blvd. We hope to see you there!

Important Information: Annual Cycling Event and Street Closure

On Sunday, August 11th, the Peninsula Cycle Club is sponsoring an all-day cycling event in our neighborhood again. We will be open but access to and from our facility will be severely limited. The event begins at 7:30AM and ends about 5:30PM so almost everyone will be affected. We value your time and want you to be aware of everything if you need to drop off or pick up your pet that day. 
 
On the 1st, the streets that make up our block-Fujita Street, Telo Avenue, Kashiwa Street, and Kashiwa Court will be closed. You may only get to us by using Early Avenue from Lomita Boulevard. For those who use 237th Street to Telo and Fujita or Lomita to Telo, please be advised that route will be closed at Telo and Fujita. 
 
Our neighbors to the west of us are allowing us to use their parking lot for the day. As you make your way down Early, volunteers from the cycling group will let you cross when it is safe to do so-they will make sure the bike pack is far enough away from the intersection to make sure you can drive your car across Fujita and into our neighbor's lot. You will then have an easy walk down the sidewalk to us. If by chance our neighbor's lot gets full, the volunteers will direct you to park on the street along Early. They will then direct you to cross Fujita when it is safe to do so. 
 
For those who are dropping off that day, please be sure to allow extra time in order to get your pet checked in. On a normal day, we recommend 15 minutes. For the 11th, we suggest 30 minutes just to be safe. If you are picking up, please allow a little extra time as well. When this event was held Spring of 2012, everything went very smoothly. We do just want you to be informed and prepared.  
 
For your pet's safety, we would like to remind you to hold on to leashes tight when you are outside with your dog–and by no means let them off leash for any reason! The races being held include 50-100 cyclists and the noise they create may make even the most well adjusted dog nervous. For our feline friends, we recommend that you have a tight-closing carrier. The cardboard ones are not nearly as secure. Each lap will take the cyclists 3-4 minutes so by the time you park and get out of your car, the group of bicycles might be coming back. 
 
For those using our late pick up service that evening, normal access should be restored. 
 
We hope this helps you in planning for the 11th. If by chance you are not going to be at our facility that day, please let your friends know that might be! If you have a specific question that we didn't cover here, please give us a call at (310)539-2201. You can also email us at mail@kennelclubresort.com.
