Get A Rock. Paint A Rock. Plant A Rock.

 

No doubt you've stopped at our rock garden here at the Dog House and perused the names on your way to drop off or pick up your pooch at the front desk. We've always gotten lots of great compliments about it, but unfortunately not every single dog that attends DDD is represented in our little garden. We try to paint them on our really slow days (which are far and few between now), but we simply can't get to every single name.

If you would like a fun family project to do at home on a sleepy weekend afternoon, why not paint and personalize your own rock and plant it in our rock garden?

Just grab a good size rock you have lying around the yard or your neighbors yard (well, maybe not your neighbors yard), wash it off and paint your dogs name on it and decorate it anyway you like. We'd be happy to have you add your rock to our garden! If you can't find a rock, just ask and we'll give you one.

One neat little unplanned result of our rock garden is when families move away or their pup crosses the rainbow bridge, the owners will sometimes take their rock home with them as a bit of a memorial keepsake. Many people appreciate having their rocks back!

When K9 Dano of the Somerset Sheriff's Department passed away over a year ago, someone made sure that Dano's rock made its way to his former partners desk and it now is proudly displayed in his office. To this day we aren't sure who made such a kind gesture to Captain Pino, but we're so glad they did!

WOOF!

Announcing Our New Puppy Play Group!

mablair@outlook.com

 

We are pleased to announce our new Puppy Play Group sessions every Sunday from 12 noon to 1 pm for puppies 8 weeks to 4 months old and who have all age-appropriate vaccinations.
 
Puppies will be able to develop their socialization skills with other puppies and no adult dogs. They will learn different play styles and how to play appropriately.
 
Owners will participate to expose their puppies to different stimuli that they have not yet experienced such as walking on different types of surfaces, various scents and sounds and what they are associated with, meeting new people, different types of toys, etc.

What could be more fun and educational?!
 
Each session will be administered in our back building (The Ruff House) and will be supervised by our newest family member here at Dog Days, Jeannette Rybak. 

Jeannette was recruited from Leipzig, Germany and is a canine behaviorist and trainer.  Most recently she was responsible for the entire Mantrailing Unit of the IHV.e.V (roughly translated as the International Dog Association) where she trained 75 mantrailing K9s and their handlers. Mantrailing is a combination of both scent tracking and trailing.
 
Admission is $20 at the door and children are welcome.
 
Advanced registration is required.
 
Please call (908) 431- 0100 to schedule your puppy for our Puppy Play Group.
 
WOOF!

Aunt Gails World Famous Home Made Hot Dog Treats

mablair@outlook.com

 

If you have been coming to Dog Days for any length of time now, there's no doubt you have seen our little container on the reception desk containing our world famous home made hot dog treats. Our doggie customers love them and we get asked frequently how to make them.

Well, the wait is over and we will now pull back the curtains of our top secret kitchens here at Dog Days and share with you our world renown recipe. Please try to contain your excitement as we begin!

  1. First, you need a package of chicken hot dogs, not beef. Muy importante.
  2. Next, slice the hot dogs long ways to cut them in half. The suspense is building isn't it?
  3. Cut those halves into 1/8 inch slices.
  4. Then, dust them with a generous amount of garlic powder. Not garlic salt...garlic powder. Mix them around a bit, and then re apply garlic powder. Mmmmmmm.
  5. Now, pop them in the microwave on high for 5 minutes. Stir them about a bit, then back in the microwave and nuke for another 4 minutes. The idea here is to get rid of all the moisture.

Done. Pretty complicated right?

Keep in mind your house will probably smell like toasted hot dogs for a day or so, but your fur bud will thank you for it!
