' Tho the weather outside is frightful…'

… but also exciting for many of our furry friends. Interesting to think about how many of them are experiencing snow for the first time. For all our rescue pups from the south this is a huge deal. After this winter they definitely deserve a New England Dog Certification! More information about our pets and the cold weather is below. First! We must go to the ever changing…

Crate-Escape

Last week we talked about the desk at Crate moving up front and the new, glass (what-used-to-be garage doors- are now) picture windows. How do our pooches feel about the change? Many of them stop to look out the picture window to watch their owners drive away. The space where the desk used to be is now a puppy pen- so cute!

Raining Cats and Dogs

Our pups! Who can’t see anything but walls of snow while walking outside! At least we can take care of your paws! Tell your caretakers to check out our PAWZ disposible booties. Many of you are familiar with our favorite dog bed – the Bowser donut. We have some new patterns in the store (and of course you can always special order from the swatches catalog!). The plushy, cushy West Paw mats, in a selection of colors are great for crates or alone. Sorry to say, we are only half way through winter– so we ordered more of the handmade Chilly Dog sweaters. Visit us soon!

Winter Care for Canines

General Concerns:
Winter’s cold air brings many concerns for responsible dog owners. Keep the following precautions in mind:

•Don’t leave your dog outside in the cold for long periods of time. Wind chill makes days colder than actual temperature readings. Be attentive to your dog’s body temperature, and limit its time outdoors.

•Adequate shelter is a necessity. Keep your dog warm, dry and away from drafts. Tiles and uncarpeted areas may become extremely cold, so make sure to place blankets and pads on floors in these areas.

•Be extra careful when walking or playing with your dog near frozen lakes, rivers or ponds. Your dog could slip or jump in and get seriously injured.

Welcome, welcome, our tails are SO excited!

Here it is! The new Crate and Raining website! We are thrilled to offer you up to date information about our facilities, your dogs and whatever else is relevent! Ernie (see her bio in the ‘About’ section) has been running around pushing her favorite ball (which is almost bigger than she is) in circles, knowing the website is a good thing and good things sometimes lead to treats! Now you can refer your friends here for complete information about Crate-Escape and Raining Cats and Dogs. Paw five! (ok, know there are a lot of exclamation marks, but you know how it goes, when one gets excited, others add their excited woof-woofs and soon it is the whole pack. Of course, we welcome you as part of the pack.)

Nikki and Lauren are howlingly happy about their parking lot view! The front desk at Crate has moved up front, near the entrance door, the garage doors are glass and it is a beautiful place to be! The food, toy and treat section is next, and will soon lure you in with our healthy, yummy treats and fun toys. We also carry only-the-best dog food and we have samples of many brands and flavors. We would love to chat with you about the options. And we cannot sign off without mentioning all our beautifully, handsome doggie stars adorning the website. You guys are the best! (positive reinforcement, no treats)

Raining Cats and Dogs

Wow! So glad you shared photos of having fun at daycare! We have to get you in the movies! More good news, Manager, Jenny is checking out new toys that are available and will undoubtedly select the most fun and maybe even durable! In any case they will all be well made. We will keep you up to date.

Good News

Fayth, the adorable jack russell mix featured in our January 13th blog, has found a foster home. She is still looking for a forever home. Children over 10 are fine; otherwise good with cats and dogs, crate trained, house trained and leash trained. And adorable!

Words of Wisdom

Hi, it’s Calvin. Thank you so much for giving me such a special spot on the website. I am having a blast, swimming, chasing balls and playing every day. You guys are the best!

Keeping things short today, encouraging you to check out our website!
