Celebrating Dog Birthdays

Our Fur Children’s birthdays deserve celebrating just as much as our own and at Paddington Pups we are here to help with the best dog birthday parties around. If your beloved dog is joining us on their special day we would love to help celebrate, in fact we will even throw in a gift too.

If you have registered your dog’s birth date and your email address with us, we will email you a gift to use with your awesome birthday dog, a complimentary Hydro-bath, with the shampoo of your choosing. We know this will help you celebrate your dog’s birthday with a lovely smelling birthday boy or girl to share hugs with.

Cutest Mature Dog Competition Winners

At the end of March, we announced the winners of our “Cutest Mature Dog” photo competition on social media! We had a great response and had the pleasure of going through lots of adorable dog photos. We would like to thank everyone who entered the competition. Picking the winners has been very hard, and we had many debates over who should come out on top. The winners walked about with some free Science Diet Youthful Vitality dog food!

 

Winning the the most competitive division, the small dogs, was Princesa the Maltese. This photo of Princesa is just adorable. We loved her dreamy far off look towards the sea. Not to mention her great hair style! Princesa comes into Paddington Pups for her regular grooms and pampering. And gosh does she like getting pampered and cuddled. Congratulations little Princesa!

 

Lily, the Border Collie, won the medium dog division. And ... Click here to read more....

HOLIDAY FUN YOU CAN ENJOY WITH YOUR DOG PART 4

We are wrapping up our series on activities to enjoy with your dog, hopefully we have helped you to find plenty of dog-friendly activities and venues. We have shared activities over the last 3 blog posts in case you want to look back at some previous ideas.

MARKETS AND FOOD TRUCKS

Markets are a great way to spend a morning or day out and about. Often markets now have live music and other entertainment and are a great place to catch up with friends and enjoy some relaxed time together. They are also a great way to spend some time out and about with your dog.

We do caution that some markets are very crowded and can be a frightening environment for some dogs. We recommend that you bring a travel bowl or water container so that you can give ... Click here to read more....

Keeping your dogs cool on the hotter days

 

 

Coming into January and February the weather can get extremely hot and humid. A lot of the time we can have trouble keeping ourselves cool so imagine our little fury friends. Unlike us, dogs only sweat from a very small area of their body and it’s their feet. Dogs tend to find it much harder to cool down than we do so why not do something for your dog to keep them cool during the hot months.

 

Splash pools: Getting a small tub or one of the half clam shells from Bunnings or toy stores is a great way to cool your pups down. On a really hot day fill it up with water and let your dogs have a great time splashing about and swimming. Even just getting out the hose and giving them a good soak will help them keep cool.
