Summer Concerns for Dogs....Fireworks, Going to Camp and more!

Summer Concerns for Dogs....Fireworks, Going to Camp and more!

Summer is upon us and, if you have a new puppy or older dog, there are a few things to consider when planning for fun in the sun.  Here are some tips and suggestions to consider when including Fido in your plans...

Taking Your Dog to An Outdoor Event:  Backyard BBQs, block parties and get-togethers with family and friends sometimes include an invitation to “bring your dog!”  If you choose to do so, be sure you plan ahead so that things go smoothly.  Always consider a public event as a training opportunity for your dog.  Wear your treat pouch and load it with delicious tidbits your dog loves.  Keep your pup on a leash so you have control over him at all times.  Here at our puppy school, we teach our customers to step on their puppy’s leash when people approach.  This way, the pup can’t jump on people who want to interact

ROCKLAND, Maine—Passion of place is what the Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show is all about. The best of Maine from across the creative spectrum will be gathered together at the 10th annual show on the Rockland waterfront, August 10-12, 2012. Beautiful boats, unique handcrafted products, and an eclectic mix of high-quality goods for life on the water and the shore will again be on display at Maine’s only in-the-water boat show and coastal lifestyle event.

 “I’ve always thought of the show as a tremendous party where the most creative folks on the coast share what they do with customers and other exhibitors.

Rescues on the Runway Recap: Almost Fifty Pets Adopted!

Rescues on the Runway Recap: Almost Fifty Pets Adopted!

The Maine Mall hosted Rescues on the Runway, an animal adoption event that featured a runway of adoptable pets held by rescue volunteers. Shoppers were delighted to meet dozens of cats, dogs, even a miniature pony, volunteers scurried to get free runway makeovers donated by AVEDA, and rescues could barely keep up with the lines of families who came specifically to adopt a pet. Within two hours, all of the 16 adorable puppies and kittens had been spoken for, but adult dogs weren't left out! By day's end, thirty-two adult cats and dogs were adopted. This is only a partial reflection of the event's impact since four out of the nine rescues present have prospective pet owners complete additional steps before officially releasing the animals. Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland shared that the day initiated the placement process for nine families, and Tall Tail Beagle Rescue had received ten follow up inquiries by email before their volunteers had left the parking lot.
