A lil yoga S-t-r-r-e-t-c-h while he’s at it!

Banjo the Mini Golden-Doodle, knows how to multitask. You can find him on Instagram @banjo.minigoldendoodle.

Just an FYI, my husband and I are SO HAPPY we found PoochieBells! We were struggling with potty training and a friend of ours mentioned trying the bell…I found it at our local pet store here in Des Moines, IA. We started using the bells on a Thursday and by the following Tuesday, Banjo was 100% housebroken and hitting his bell each and every time he needed to go outside (along with his sweet little yoga pose/stretch!)

THANK YOU for helping us make housebreaking a breeze!

Who Wouldn’t Want to Attend A Pug Social?

Pug Social 2014

A few weeks ago Gibby and I packed our bags and headed to our first Pug Social, hosted by the New England Pug Rescue Group (PRONE) in Spencer, Massachusetts. Greeted by hundreds of pugs and their passionate families that day, I felt an overwhelming sense of community as we all shared the love of our unique pug buddies. It was truly a heartfelt experience for everyone there as we watched pug after pug strut by and showcase their unique personalities. Pug races, costume contests, most curly tail, most wrinkles – you name it – all pug characteristics were recognized at this event as prized attributes. Needless to say, Gibby and I loved it.

What struck me most however was the passion of the PRONE team and their followers for helping pugs in need.  All volunteers, the group works tirelessly to rescue and place pugs in forever homes. They also provide medical care, food, and foster housing when needed. This team gets high praises from Gibby and the PoochieBells team!  We thank them for inviting us to their event and sharing with us the warmth of their community.

A Good Dog Day at Poochie-Pets Central

The PoochiePets Team recently regrouped to discuss our half-way point in the year.  Beside a fabulous reason to share some eats together, we discovered our need to create a tag line for our expanding line of products by Poochie-Pets. We asked ourselves, PoochieBells®, Live in Dog Years™ and our creative line of functional must haves such as the 3SixtyFun, all represent what to our fantastic dog families out there?  Our family of retailers range from pet, hardware and home & garden stores to hospital gift shops AND on-line storefronts. What is the one common element they all share with their dog passionate shoppers? What is it that our products help them achieve?  In other words, what is Our ‘Vibe’?

Well, our discussion paid off. We found Our Vibe! Our team, and Gibby the office manager, are proud to introduce our new tag line for the Poochie-Pets name and line of branded products:
