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 just discovered Tags for Hope on Facebook this morning and we like … [Read more...]
Licensing your dog is mandatory under the Responsible Pet Ownership Bylaw Section 3(1). All dogs must be licensed at 3 months of age. Your dog's license can be ordered ONLINE via the City of Calgary website*! Looking at that little tag, you'd never think that it could do so much. For a whole $37, your dog has a much better chance being reunited with you if she gets lost. Much more so than if she's just chipped or tattooed. More still, the City can research and create better resources to keep … [Read more...]
Nearly all of us have thought or said those four words at some point in our lives. Or maybe you have a young son or daughter that said that. The squishy faces, the clumsiness, and the hiccups! Oh boy, the hiccups! Puppy hiccups are at the centre of everything good in the world. Who can resist? Not many of us, of course. Yet, what few of us realize is the cost and dedication that is required of us once puppy comes home. This post is not meant to stop you from getting a puppy - or adopting a … [Read more...]
