7 Tips for Running with Your Dog

 

 

Marathon Monday…one of our favorite days of the year! How can you not be inspired watching thousands of determined runners pounding the pavement towards Boylston?  Every year It inspires us to lace up our sneaks and hit the road. And this year it got us thinking, hey, why not bring the pup?

We did some research about what to know before taking your dog from couch to 5K.  Here are some tips we’d like to pass along.

Consider these issues BEFORE you hit the road!

Not every dog is cut out for running. Consider...

Hit the Beach While You Still Can

Hit the Beach NOW with your Pup

Knock on wood, but we escaped the New England winter relatively unscathed here on Cape Cod. Apart from a couple of quick storms that blew through, we’ve enjoyed some unusually spring-like temps. That’s been pretty awesome because one of our favorite things about a Cape Cod winter is the opportunity to roam the beaches with our pups.  Sadly, most beaches are “dogs NOT allowed” during the summer months, so it’s wonderful to see them romp in the sand...

If you think brushing a dog’s teeth is for foo-foo dogs, think again! Vets now know that a dog’s oral health is linked to all sorts of internal body parts.

Turns out your dog’s choppers need the same attention for the very same reasons. In light of Pet Dental Health Month, we remind you of five good reasons to start brushing and 5 ways to...

Secrets from our Groomers

 



Dogs will take to the world’s biggest stage this week at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. They’ll be perfectly coiffed, perfectly stacked and perfectly styled. But hey, we don’t think you need Westminster creds to be fabulous! We checked in with two of our awesome groomers, Samantha and Amanda, for some show quality grooming tips you can do at home (or at the Dig’s Dog Wash)! Here’s what our seasoned pros had to say:


Their hands down favorite product: The Stuff

No kidding,...

We're Mad for Mud!

 

Hey winter, we have a love/hate relationship with you. While we love a romp in the snow and snuggling by the fire with our humans, we resent what you do to beautiful coats. You strip us of our natural oils and dehydrate our once shiny fur. And we’ve come to know that our parents would much rather snuggle with us when we’re shiny and clean!


That’s right, your dog feels the effects of old man winter as much as you do. Have you noticed his skin getting flaky? His coat looking dull? Just like...

Hunting Season on the Cape - What you need to know

It’s here – hunting season on Cape Cod.  And if you didn’t think hunting was a big sport on Cape Cod, think again.  Ask around and numerous dog owners will recount close encounters with hunters while out for what they expected to be a carefree hike in the woods. Ashley (Hot Digs co-owner who most of you know) recounts walking young Coop in the woods a few years back and meeting a hunter. “Good thing you had an orange collar on the big brown one (dog)”, he said. “I would have...
