Feel the Turkey Burn

Posted by: admin | November 27, 2011 | Posted in Dog Health

Here’s a little video to remind us to snap out of our turkey induced coma, get up and moving, and get our dogs some exercise.  Thankfully most of us don’t have the doggie equivalent of an olympic hurdler on a caffeine high like the dog in this video, but remember that Fido still needs some action.  Of course, Central Bark is here for the best of both worlds, exercise for Rover while you remain comfortably on the couch.  Enjoy!

Animal Planet Portraits @ Central Bark

Posted by: Pack Leader | November 17, 2011 | Posted in Dog Events

Alan and Ingrid of Animal Planet Photography will be here on December 4th and 5th to take beautiful animal portraits for the holiday season.  Here is some Q & A about the upcoming shoot.

What if my dog won’t hold still?  They don’t expect them too.  Their camera shoots at 1/6000 of a second.  They can capture even the briefest of poses.

How much does it cost?  The shoot is free.  You can select a single photo, multiple, or a package.  Prices depend on photo size and quantity.

How do I order?  You can see your photos as soon as they’re taken and select the ones you would like.

Can I be in it?  Absolutely.  They can do group photos with you, your dogs, and your cat if you would like.

How do I sign up?  E-mail us at info@central-bark.com or call us at 206.325.3525.


Pet Store Puppies

Posted by: Pack Leader | November 13, 2011 | Posted in Dog Health

We continue to be impressed with the spectacular variety of dogs we have here at Central Bark, from purebred Pomeranians to true Heinz 57s that tip the scales at 90lbs.  I am also awed with how knowledgeable our clients are and how many of them chose to adopt or purchase their dog from a credible breeder.

That said, I am still suprised by how many people tell me that they bought their puppy from a pet store or mass online breeder.  Don’t they know that puppies sold in pet stores come almost exclusively from puppy mills where they live in squalid, crowded, wire-bottom cages and are never allowed to experience the joys of doggie life like feeling grass on their feet, playing with other dogs, or being loved by a human?

There is something that we can do about it.  Don’t buy anything from pet stores that sell puppies and puppy mills will go out of business.  You can also sign the ASPA’s pledge to reject purchases from puppy-peddling operations by clicking here.

Thanks for taking the time to sign!
