National Dog Walk Week – Oct 1-7

walkOriginally founded by Animal Behaviorist, Colleen Paige, National Walk Your Dog Week was established in 2010.

Why is it important to walk your dog regularly? Well, there are a number of reasons, but we’re pretty sure that from your pet’s viewpoint, it would be to get out with you and have some wonderful bonding time.

Pets that are not able to get out, have a sense of confinement. Getting out into the fresh autumn air gives your dog a chance to enjoy mother nature and stay healthy. Experts say that by keeping your pet sedentary also can increase the risk of health issues, such as cancer, obesity and heart problems.

Colleen suggests walking pets is a great way to keep in shape – you and your pet. “If you walk your dog just 30 minutes a day, you will meet national recommendations for heart health”, according to Ms. Paige. Great advice.
We hope this tidbit will help you welcome the new season with a healthy fresh attitude – and maybe even a great new hobby.

We had our first annual Staff Bar B Q, catered by Lucille’s. Great food… good fun. Julie & Bruce gave us all a few dance lessons, we had our bonfire, complete with marshmallows. Fine music! Fine times! Pool-side summer fun!

Thanks to everyone for letting us take the day off!

Don’t Let Them Spook Poochie

Well, here we are again with another Halloween at our doorsteps. It’s such a fun holiday with lots of “spirit”. Everybody likes to dress up and masquerade around town with their pets and families. Costume contests abound for man and pet alike. Cats are known to stretch their spines out like slinkies and warn everybody of the spooky specters creeping around the corner.

We hope you have a great time, but seriously… don’t let them spook your dog. Dogs can get spooked by strangers and especially people who don’t even look like people. Be sure to keep your black cats inside – don’t want any evil zombies getting them.

Take caution while you’re enjoying your festivities. We wouldn’t want anyone to get hurt on this ghoulish night!
