Just a quick note to say thank you to everyone for your patience while Pawsh took a little hiatus this winter. We needed to get away and recharge, destress and seek balance, spend some time detatched from the constant computer time and really just hug our dogs to help get us reinvigorated about the Pawsh project.
Happily we will be returning to regular scheduled programming next week. The past several weeks have been spent cooking up new fun, bite-sized features for the blog that you and your pupsters can enjoy on the go!
We are so looking forward to getting back into chit-chatting about dog wellness, behaviour, fantastic products and living a dog-friendly lifestyle on a regular basis. We have missed it deeply. Thank you everyone again and again for sticking with us while we worked to rediscover our own ‘pawsh’ voice amidst the general noise of life and the media world. We can’t wait for next week!
The love affair we have with our dogs is a deep and profound connection that lasts a lifetime and it is this beautiful bond that has inspired the newest collection of Canine Quote from The Pawsh Print Shop.
Six new designs have floated into the shop, each specifically designed to provide a little more of that ‘warm and fuzzy feeling’ to our dog-loving home and office decor. And in keeping with Pawsh’s 2015 goal to give back this year, $5 dollars from each print sold will be donated to Boston Terrier Rescue Canada/Pinups for BTRC.
Each print is 5×7 in size and comes in a stunning crisp white 8×10 mat that will fit any standard 8×10 frame.
There are only a limited number of prints for each canine quote available and when they are gone, they’re gone! Visit the Pawsh Print Shop here to see all six designs and pick up yours today! They make excellent Valentine’s, Anniversary or Just Because gifts!
Treating your beloved dog couldn’t be easier with this simple two ingredient dog treat recipe that happens to be the cutest thing in the world. Presenting delicious dollops of goodness called Strawberry Yogurt Droplets. Keep reading for the full recipe! (more…)
This Valentine’s Day let your dog where his heart on his sleeve — or sweater! A holiday themed jumper is a wonderful way to add some cheer to an otherwise dreary winter, plus it’s practical to keep the chilliness at bay. A crisp modern heart design won’t ever go out of style either, making a Valentine’s dog sweater a really great purchase! The only question that remains is which sweater do you like best? Sweater #1 is a TopPaw Fuzzy Heart design and sweater #2 is a Polkadot Fleece design. Both are very, very cute!
Over the years I have been lucky enough to interview a variety of dog trainers and behaviourists and a common thread of wisdom that I gleaned from these conversations is that dogs thrive on structure and routine. So recently, I created this little dog-friendly ritual…
At the end of the day when I’m getting ready for bed I take off my socks and toss one to each pup to catch, which they do oh-so gleefully! I know, I know, this sounds a little odd, but it is a fun, simple activity that has over time taught Rory and Lucy that the day is winding down.
They sit patiently and wait for their toss. Then they roll around on the rug for a moment and maybe play a quick game of chase before happily bounding away to their beds for a good night’s sleep (without the socks — I can’t have them chewing those!)
Don’t ask me how this little routine started, but it is a sweet way to wrap up an evening and something the dogs seem to look forward to. It is a final little play session for the day then off to bed for some sweet dreams!
What daily rituals do you have with your fur-kids? I would love to know!
