Aside

From one of our favorite podcasts / radio shows (This American Life) this is a terrific episode featuring two stories about dogs! What animals sacrifice for us, and what we sacrifice for them. Including a story from Susan Orlean about … Continue reading

BarkBox!

We here at Dawg House found a GREAT new subscription service that is right up our alley! We think you would love it too.

It’s called BarkBox!

The first step is to go to their website barkbox.com and choose the size of your dog.  Then, you choose your plan (you can pay monthly, every 3 months, every 6 months) and then you get to wait =).  The boxes are shipped on the 15th of every month, and every month you get a bevy of different dog related products geared to the size of your pup.

Somehow, Clio knew that the box was for her!! In this months’ box, we received:

1. Hyper Pet slingshot dog toy that is full size.  Our dogs love it!  You can shoot it really far, which is great for dogs that love to chase and fetch. Plus, it floats!         (hyper-pet.com)

2. A bottle of Nature’s Miracle dog freshening spray that is really light in scent and conditions the coat as well. This one may be more for us, but our dogs love that we snuggle with them more often when they smell better. (ilovenaturesmiracle.com)

3. Acadia Antler–a small company from Maine that collects naturally shed moose antlers from the wilderness.  Moose antlers are the toughest antler, so they will last a long time.  They are non splintering, odor and mess free, and even provide calcium and other trace minerals.  Plus, they are very appealing to your dog—so much so we actually have to bribe our dogs to get it away from them! They have every size and shape available. (acadiaantlers.weebly.com)

5. Milk-Bone Trail Mix–it’s a great snack for the dog on the go! If you hike, bike, or even have a vigorous play session with your pup–this treat is for you! The pieces are small as well, so would work great as a training treat. (milkbone.com)

6. Bocce’s Bakery treats–called Elvis treats! They are peanut butter, banana and bacon. Yes. You read that right. But they’re not for you–they’re for your dog. (boccesbakery.com)

Hopefully you all will give this service a try—in addition to getting a great box of interesting treats and toys, learning about new products from mainstream companies, and supporting a variety of  small companies, 10% of the proceeds are donated to an animal rescue group.

What could be better than that? Finnegan says “nothing”!!

New Technology!!

We have been having a really good time making videos of the dogs running around and playing, and then posting it on our YouTube channel.  But things have gotten even better!

There is a new app that let’s you film in slow motion or SUPER slow motion and we have been trying it out.  The videos are amazingly clear and it makes Dawg House look like the National Geographic channel.  Seriously.

We are able to witness subtleties and nuances that we never noticed before. It’s a completely new aspect of dog language.

So, we will be posting these videos alongside our regular videos at www.youtube.com/dawghousedogdaycare.  Each of the videos we post are named after the dogs that appear, and these slo-mo videos will have ‘slo-mo’ in the title as well to make them easy to find.

Check back OFTEN to see these great videos!

Second Chance and Underwater Dog Photos

Seth Casteel is the photographer of the fantastic “underwater dogs” photo series, which you can see at his website Little Friends. Check out these great images of dogs diving for toys underwater! Wired Magazine posted a profile and interview with Casteel here.

On February 9th, the photos mysteriously landed on Reddit, Facebook, Google+ and then Warholian, becoming one of the hottest trends amongst viewers on at least five or six continents.

More than 1,000 people all over the world have subsequently asked him to shoot photos of their pets. He’s got a line of publishing houses fighting to get the rights to his forthcoming book of underwater dog photos, and he’s made appearance on, or in, most major American news publications from the The New York Times to Good Morning America.

Casteel’s website also drives donations to the non-profit rescue site Second Chance Photos, whose mission is to create professional shots of adoptable dogs in order to give them a better shot at finding a home. You can see some compelling and heartbreaking before and after pictures at their site.

Sad Etsy Dogs

Juggernaut Of Unfortunate Choices Dog Stunned By Own Unacceptability

Etsy! Love it. However… Putting a sweater on your dog when they really need one is an act of kindness, but making dogs wear costumes when they clearly do not want to — not so much. Sad Etsy Dogs shows us why (and they also write awesome captions for the pictures)…

Dawg Media

Hey! How are you? We haven’t been updating the blog much lately, but we haven’t forgotten, either. Sometimes ya just get busy. Plus, summer in Tucson is here, and things move a little more slowly when the heat sets in…

Anyway, we wanted to take a minute to ask for some help updating our Dawg Media. As you know, we have two picture pages on this blog, one with individual daycare dawg portraits (Gallery), and one with general daycare playtime pics (Dawgs Being Dawgs). We also have a You Tube Channel, where we post short videos of playtime here at Dawg House.

When you get a chance, click on those links and poke around. If you don’t see an individual portrait of your dawg, let us know and we’ll add one! If you don’t see a playtime pic of your dawg, let us know about that too! And if you don’t see a video of your dawg, send us a note! We’ll get right on it. You can leave a comment on the blawg pages or send us an email at: contact@dawghouse.biz
