Rolissa & Ginny
Wednesday October 1, 2014 Rolissa and Ginny are happy to announce:
Doggie U appreciates your patience, understanding, and support since our roof collapse in August. We are happy to announce that our new location is scheduled to be up and running by October 17. We are still in Bay Shore but will now be located just off Southern State Parkway at
1515D Fifth Industrial Court, Bay Shore NY 11706
Our building is still in the construction phase and is not open to the public. We hope that you can understand our desire not to distract the workers from completing their work. Our phone number and email remains the same. It's an exciting time but we still have many challenges ahead of us. We are counting on your continued support to help make this new chapter of Doggie U a success.
We have many events scheduled including our Weight Pull Seminar and Trial on Oct 18 and 19. Newsday is coming on Sunday to cover Long Island's first Weight Pull competition. Also scheduled for December 6 is our tricks seminar with Karen Profenna. Our upcoming agility events include Diane Goodspeed seminar on November 1 and Teacup trials on November 16 and December 7. We will also be hosting many other events sponsored by Long Island's outstanding dog clubs. We look forward to seeing you and your friends at these events.
More information about these events can be found on our website
Friday September 19, 2014 Fellow members , family and friends we have been faced with many challenges since the damage to Doggie U. It has now been a little over a month since the storm, and we have made incredible strides thanks in large part to you and the outpouring of support we have received. I am excited to share some news with you, and that is that we have secured a new location and will be moving in on Oct 17, 2014. We are looking forward to welcoming each of you to the New Doggie U, your home. Your support has been invaluable in making this move happen.
We made this decision after careful evaluation and professional assessment, that the current location is no longer tenable for our purposes, and the safety of our four legged family members is one of Doggie U's top priorities.
We have gotten over the first mound, are excited to start the climb up the hill we are confident that with your continued and generous support we shall reach the top.
We envision bigger and better things for Doggie U and are glad you are a part of the Doggie U family and team.
Doggie U Update Sunday September 14, 2014
We want to thank everyone for their continued support of Doggie U and our endeavors to re-build as quickly as possible.
As of today, the building is empty and ready for construction. We are also covering all options to service everyone in a timely manner. As such we have arranged to conduct our puppy, beginner class and existing agility classes at outside sites.
We do have several fund raiser campaigns in place to assist with the rebuild efforts. Please visit these sites for more information and share them with other Dog Lovers you may know.

Again, We Thank You All for Your Support and we will keep you apprised of our progress.
To all Doggy U family and friends:
As each of you are aware our community experienced a storm that produced record rainfall of over 14 inches in a 12 hour period. A number of residents and businesses have been affected by this and suffered loss, and unfortunately Doggie U was not spared. Our building suffered major damage, but the process is already underway to move forward in getting Doggie U rebuilt and running, thanks to our wonderful members, friends and caring dog community near and far.
In the meantime, we are working to set up temporary space. I want each of you to know that Doggie U will continue, and while we have some work ahead of us, we are continuing to move forward with our plans.
I am thankful that no one was injured, and that our losses are confined to things that can be fixed or replaced. As soon as the complete assessment is done I'll provide an update.
Thank you to my partner Ginny, team members: Teri, Louise, Judy, Alex, Yolanda, Merrilee, Debbie, Diana, Paula who have stepped in and offered invaluable assistance, and others of you who've volunteered to help. The list is large.
Additionally, I am deeply appreciative to the entire dog community that is continuing to help. Words cannot express how I feel about all of you and the friendship and support you've shown.
