Kids always look forward to spending another day in school. Aside from learning new stuff every day, they experience what it feels like to play with different people. Plus, they can do this in a safe and structured environment.
However, in Portland, Oregon, children aren’t the only ones boarding a school bus to spend an enjoyable day in school.
Welcome aboard the doggie school bus!
With all the hectic work schedules jam-packed into a single day, most dog owners don’t have time to stay at home and take care of their fur babies. Much as they want to do so, they can’t provide for their daily needs if they always indulge in some quality time with their beloved doggy friends.
Thanks to Arat Montoya’s ingenious idea, dog owners can leave their homes worry-free. They can entrust their dogs to a friend, knowing their fur babies are in good hands.
Every morning, Arat drives all around Portland aboard his customized yellow doggie school bus to fetch his “students.” And, by the looks of it, every single pup he fetches is eager to spend another day in “school” as evidenced by their smiling faces and wagging tails.
School is one big playground for happy doggies.
One by one, different dogs from various households eagerly hops aboard their school bus. As soon as Arat loads all twenty or so dogs in the school bus, they start rolling towards their destination for the day.
While most dog caretakers look after the dogs within the four-cornered walls of concrete buildings, Arat uses a different approach. He takes the dogs to his place, where the dogs get to release their pent-up energy into play and socialization with their doggy classmates.
You can think of Arat’s idea like a big outdoor daycare facility for dogs. But, it works every single time. The dogs happily run around, play with some sticks, or engage in playful banter with their classmates. Sometimes, even Arat’s kids play with the dogs as well.
School’s over, time to go home buddies!
After a whole day of fun, it’s finally time to go home. Once again, they all board the school bus and let Arat roll the bus away towards their loving families.
What’s the best part fur parents see when their dogs come home? They’re all tuckered out from their playful day, ready to hit the haystack or spend some snuggle time with mom and dad.
When a reporter asked Arat how he came up with this bright idea, Arat’s simple answer blew the reporter’s mind away.
