We'll admit, it's a little confusing so we wanted to walk you through the 3 steps. Instead of typing word for word instructions, we decided to put together a little tutorial for you.

Thanksgiving Safety For The Fur Kids

Thanksgiving is less than a week away. Family. Friends. Copious amounts of food. Decadent desserts. It's all there. We eat a little too much and flirt with the dessert table a few times around. When all is said and done, we're silently giving thanks for elastic waistband.

A while back, we posted something along the lines of Thanksgiving safety for dogs. With Thanksgiving only days away and this issue being extremely important, we thought we'd throw it out there one more time.

K9 1-ON-1 Thanksgiving Contest

Today is the big day!  The K9 1-ON-1 Thanksgiving Contest officially begins! Our last contest involved sending in a photo of your furbaby sportin' their Halloween costume. This time around, we're keeping it simple...with a bit of a twist.

Think back on past Thanksgivings whether you've hosted it at your house or attended dinner elsewhere. A lot of planning went into everything from what dishes to serve up to the seating arrangements. You planned every detail right down to the table centerpiece. Your goal was for everything to run smoothly. Bottom line, you put in all efforts for the perfect Thanksgiving Day.

Indoor Exercise When The Bad Weather Hits

Winter is soon approaching. Although most pups enjoy a little time outdoors during the winter months, outdoor playtime is limited. Swimming in the lake is obviously out of the question and playing fetch when there's 3 feet of snow on the ground isn't always doable.

We're Bursting At the Seams Over Here!

Yesterday we had one of those "moments." Again. After another week of continuous work, we hit one of many milestones. The sheetrock is done. We stepped back to admire the work. That's when the moment hit...  Wow! We're really doing this and it's starting to take shape into what we envisioned.

There's still some work to be done however, we're ready to make a few announcements that we've been bursting at the seams about...

Keep Your Dog Safe This Winter

The other morning I was surprised to step outdoors and find frozen "white stuff" on the ground. Already? Couldn't Mother Nature wait another month? Who am I kidding...this is New England we're talking about.

Rachel Ray's "Rice" Christmas DIY Eat

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and, before you know it, it'll be Christmas. As a pet parent, there's a sentimental desire to include your furbaby during holiday meals. Sure, there are some foods that are suitable and safe. However, most aren't. For example, sweet potatoes are a healthy option, but when you add a brown sugar and butter glaze and top it off with ooey gooey marshmallows, it goes from yay to nay.

A List Of Recalled Jerky Treats

You may remember last month we published an article 'A Word Of Caution To All Pet Parents.'  There's been an outbreak in dog related illnesses and deaths from jerky treats. To date, the FDA has received over 3,200 reports. The death count is now over 600 and counting. This is scary stuff.

It's All Coming Together

Today was another busy day at the K9 1-ON-1 shop. At one point, the both of us stopped what we were doing, put our hands on our hips and had a "look at how far we've come" moment. Sometimes, when we're on the go, busy and getting through tedious days, we forget to stop. Look around. Admire what we've done and the progress made. At one time, this was a dream of ours that we only talked about. Now, it's a reality. Our shop is coming together right before our eyes.
