 Party Time

We can’t believe it, but Paws on the Run will officially be 1 year old on Sunday, June 15! This year has just flown by and the changes we’ve experienced have been tremendous. Amanda and I love to think back to the “old days” when there were just 8 dogs at daycare and 4 of them were ours! How quickly that changed.

So to celebrate, we are going to throw a party for both you and your dog(s). We are going to have a FREE indoor dog park (both you and your dog can hang out and play) and a BBQ. All the proceeds from the BBQ will be donated to our favourite rescue – the Prairie Dog Canine Rescue. So you aren’t tackled for your burger, while you eat, we will supervise your dog(s). And if you need even more incentive to come, there will even be a door prize of toys, treats and more.

You don’t need to be a client to come, everyone one is welcome. But in order for your dog to celebrate with us, you’ll need to make sure they have their Bordetella, Parvo and Rabies vaccinations. All dog owners will need to agree to our indoor dog park “rules”.

They’re Coming!

 Theyre Coming!

Wow! We had no idea how much all of you would really like the toys from West Paw Design. We only have three Hucks left. The good news is, we have more on the way – Hucks, Hurleys, Ziscs and…their new product Tux has finally been shipped. We hope to see them at the daycare by early next week. We’ll keep you posted.

We are happy to say they are STILL holding up in the daycare after about a month! The only damage has been to the Zisc (frisbee) and it has a small hole that amazingly hasn’t expanded…yet.

Who knew a jack russell would love water so much? Zoey was OBSESSED. She had so much fun we had to make a collage of photos.

Amanda was just out with the dogs and took one of my favourite photos so far! This is Levi, a doodle. Don’t you just love his eyes?

Pool Party

 Pool Party

After much encouragement from Amanda, I went out and got a pool yesterday. Last summer, the dogs played in the tub (it is actually a water trough for livestock) before we had it installed and they had a blast – the retrievers especially. I’m skeptical about how long the kiddy pool will last but the dogs will have fun while it does.

 Pool Party

True to form, the retrievers had a lot of fun in the pool but the surprise pool hog was Harley. He couldn’t get enough. He would jump in, splash around, jump out and then repeat.

No Bark

May 15, 2008

“No Bark” is probably the two words we say the most during the day. Some dogs bark while playing, some bark at people passing by and some bark just for the sake of barking. If we can’t stop them from barking just by asking them to, we bring out the big guns…The Waterbottle.

 No Bark

For some dogs just the sight of the water bottle is enough to make them be quiet. For others, they need to be sprayed a few times to be reminded of what it can do.  No Bark And then there are the dogs like Oreo…who LOVE the waterbottle.

 No Bark

It doesn’t work very well as an anti-bark tool on Oreo…although it does distract him for a bit.

 Taylor Made

Taylor is a very cute little pup (her last picture on the blog wasn’t her most flattering!) that has just recently started coming to daycare. She reminds us a lot of little Ruby. Not only do they look similar (although Taylor is about 10 times bigger!), they have the same sasssy and friendly personality…oh yeah, and they both have pretty high pitched barks!
