Dog Grooming: Get the tools. Eazee Brush Review

Getting a dog grooming appointment is surprisingly difficult. Or so I discovered seven years ago when I suddenly adopted a non-shedding dog that required regular grooming. Professional grooming. Sometimes, that’s easier said than done especially if, like me, you don’t plan six weeks ahead: “No appointment available tomorrow? The next day? Not until next week?” […]

Time to spoil the pup – Ok, it’s always time to spoil the pup, but this year let’s take it up a level.

Travel Toronto: Winter One of a Kind 2018 – Digging for Dog Stuff

Art, pottery, glass, woodworking, textiles… the traditional mediums and more are staples of One of a Kind, a twice a year artisan show and sale that gets me excited for all things textural, tactile and most important: handmade. Designed. Created. Crafted.  There’s still a thrill to meeting the maker of beautiful things, and even better […]

My Dog Demands: Gimme Chicken Cutlets (with B6) or the bag gets it!

I don’t mean the bag’s half empty – I mean the plastic bag containing the jerky chicken dog treats is ripped apart. Shredded. When I wasn’t looking, my dog Victor immediately rummage into the box of […]

Bow Wow Butter - dog peanut butter

Dog Peanut Butter. Curious?

Etsy’s great, but there’s still nothing like a real life, real time art and craft show where you can meet the makers directly – or touch stuff and impulse purchase shamelessly. (If you’ve been following dogtrotting.net, you’ve likely noticed I love handmade stuff). What’s trendy at craft shows? Handbags, totes, soap, bath balms and … […]

Dog Bath Time: Meet Espree, Victor’s Nemesis (and enter a contest)

Victor’s curly tight black cocker/poodle fur makes him a canine air filter, walking through the world gathering any and all the dirt you can imagine. Yes, a week after a grooming appointment, he smells  a bit ripe.

But it’s when I see all the brown water filtering down the drain during a bath I realize, that’s snuggling up in my bed each night. Ick.
