Hey everybody, just as a heads up, Big Dog Natural has voluntarily recalled their "Chicken Supreme" blend dog food due to the high potential of contamination with salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes. We all know that's bad news for puppies as well as us puppy parents so take a read of this notice and discontinue feeding your dog the BDN Chicken Supreme. Particularly if it was packaged between October 31 and November 13, 2015. Good on Big Dog Natural for letting the world know. On Monday, … [Read more...]
The Pod Tracker was brought to our attention recently by a friend. We won't lie, at one point, we thought this was what a microchip did. Boy were we ever surprised. The Pod Tracker is a collar mounted GPS tracker for your dog (or cat) that will help you bring your furry friend home if she's gone missing. According to the site, 10 million pets go missing each year in the United States alone! Seeing as our Canadian dogs are sooooo much different, we thought this would be a great product to … [Read more...]
Bernese Mountain Dogs have got to be one of the most striking breeds known to man. Gracing posters, ads, and packaging far and wide, their popularity might be affecting their egos.

We hope you enjoy this article from Mental Floss on the Bernese Mountain Dog. Afterwards, share with us some of your favourite Berner … [Read more...]
Mental Floss occasionally posts some fun articles about various dog breeds. This post is about the Rottweiler, one of our personal favourites (no active bias, don't worry).

We know one that has perfected the art of the shoulder check. Who has some good stories about their Rotties? These dogs … [Read more...]
We spent the better part of the last two days trying to fire up our online store at dogsyyc.ca and it's finally live! We only have two products right now, two really cool tees - one for the guys and one for the girls - featuring our very own Info Puppy. Just like our Business Directory listings, we will be giving a big portion of the proceeds from these shirts to Calgary pet charities like The Calgary Humane Society and AARCS. The small amount we do take is just to keep our site running and to … [Read more...]
Calgary is loaded with dog lovers! Here we have a list of dog focused groups that we have found operating within Calgary. Some are big. Some are small. Some are focused on training, obedience, and socialization while others are just downright pack walks and doggy hikes. Some groups are wide open while others cater to a particular niche. Some are hosted by businesses. Some groups may even be training sessions at a wildly reduced price! Always check the details and find the one you like the … [Read more...]
We called it! Enough banging our heads on things. We have launched DOGS YYC! So excited to have you with us!
