Annual Day Out for Pets

Perhaps you enjoyed the dog days of summer with your favorite four-legged furry friend at Woofstock 2016. The annual celebration was held in early August at The Shoppes at Arbor Lakes. It was a fun day of food and live entertainment, all fit for pooches and their families, including a kids’ zone with bounce houses, face painting and carnival games. All proceeds were given to Good Karma Animal Rescue of MN. Don’t miss Woofstock next year. Your doggy will thank you.


New Pets Welcome

Has a friend or family member recently adopted a new pet? Chuck & Don’s has the perfect way to send your support and good wishes with a gift box. For a furry feline: a box of treats, toys and grow-your-own cat grass. The deluxe version adds interactive toys and a massaging brush. $24.99

Perhaps the new pet is a pup? In the doggie gift box: a clicker for training, food scoop, adoption day pie treat, tennis ball, toy, treats, gourmet cookies and a few other surprises. $34.99


Doggy Care

A healthy well-groomed dog is a happy dog. According to Lisa Sellman, professional dog trainer, canine massage therapist and founder of Good Dog LLC., a dog’s overall health revolves around the basics with a nutritious diet, regular exercise and grooming. Sellman recommends feeding your dog a high-quality, protein-rich diet including good fats like coconut or flax seed oil for a beautiful coat and hydrated skin. Sellman claims that it is less expensive to provide your pet with high-quality food.
