Dog of the Month for July



Maci is a 2 year old French Bull dog x Pug who has been coming to us for just over a year now. Every morning she arrives her mum and dad struggle to contain her excitement as she greets all of us at the door. Her favourite thing to do in day care is wrestle around with the other smoosh face dogs and chase the toys up and down the day care. We love having her in and hope she never leaves us!...

Paddington Pups Gets a Makeover









Some of you may have noticed a few small changes happening at Paddington Pups in the past couple of months. As we like to continuously maintain our label as the ‘best Doggy Day Care’ in Queensland, we consulted a Feng Shui analyst who is a current client to improve the exterior and interior appearance of Paddington Pups.


After consulting with our client about our Feng Shui in early March, it was made evident that we needed  to improve our stores flow and appearance. We needed to create energy and movement throughout the store because we want the dogs, clients and staff to be in the best possible environment. So by adding bright colours and plants we have  sucessfully attained a far more pleasing and inviting image.


To begin our makeover we set out to buy paint that was asthetically pleasing, and ... Click here to read more....

Thank You Thank You Thank You

Thank-You-DogI wanted to take a moment to thank you for your continued help to build Paddington Pups Queensland’s #1 Doggy Day Care and Grooming Center.

Last months promotional deals got us close to our target; we raised $31,934 which will pay most of the relevant Council fees and the deposit for the new location!

So as a gracious Thank You, I thought I might give you a sneak preview of the new location. It obviously still needs to be fitted out, cleaned up and set up the way we need it, but I thought you’d appreciate having a quick look at the great location and space.

Enjoy this Video Sneak Preview Here

Thank You For Helping Us Out, It’s Very much Appreciated.

P.S. We would be grateful if you would refer friends, family members and even work colleagues to come in and try out our services. We will soon have ... Click here to read more....

To shave or not to shave…





Recently, daycare staff member, Amy, asked me to shave her lovely Labrador, Shiloh, because she was getting some small hotspots around her collar area and under her ears. I’ve already talked about how nasty hotspots can be, and shaving either a generous patch around the infection or the entire dog are good options for combating the problem.


First and foremost, clipping the coat short allows air to get to the hotspot and dry it out, which is the best and fastest way to treat it initially.


There are, however, other benefits to shaving your dog, so if you are sitting on the fence about whether to shave or not, the next few ideas may help you to make up your mind.


Many dog owners that book in with us for de-shedding are unsure whether they want a Strip Out or if they want an ... Click here to read more....

Breed Test: Cairn Terrier




These cute little guys were first bred to flush out vermin and game out of rocky piles in Scotland in the early 1500’s. The Cairn Terrier is actually the oldest of the terrier breeds; it was actually considered the same breed as the Scottish Terriers and West Highland White Terriers until the 1900’s when they started to breed separately.


Cairn Terriers are known for their shaggy, double, weather-resistant coat with a harsh outer coat with a soft undercoat. The Cairn Terrier comes in almost any colour except white, including ;red, brindle, blackish, sand and various shades of grey, often with dark ears, muzzle and tail tip.


Cairn Terriers are quite small dogs and shouldn’t weigh any more then 8kgs, simular to West Highland White Terriers and the Scottish Terrier.


Personality of these little dogs includes Loyal, Alert, Curious Little dogs that also have a ... Click here to read more....
