Stage dogs are acting, dancing and barking their way into the theater.
Take care of your furry friends this summer, like they take care of you. Here are some of the top dog grooming products from Woodbury’s Chuck and Don’s.
Shampoo and Conditioner
Isle of Dogs Everyday Elements offers a wide variety of shampoos. The Jasmine Vanilla will detangle and soften, while Red Berries Champagne is high–performing and offers odor control.
After browsing numerous pet product websites, Pet Evolution co-owners Rian Thiele and Mike Osborne saw a need for a website that clearly showed what items people were purchasing for their furry friends. Best Pet Picks, Pet Evolution’s digital companion, seeks to offer only the best quality pet food, toys and more. “We define what’s in the food and the quality of the food,” Thiele says. The online option also allows the store to reach more members of the community, who cannot always leave their homes to get the supplies they need.

Prepare for guests. If you have increased traffic in the home, make sure your animals are comfortable. And be watchful of doors!
Keep warm. “20 degrees is the cutoff,” Hunter says. Keep pets indoors when the temperature drops and if they must be outside, use booties.

Shelley Benda has been running Walk A By Buddy, a local dog-walking and pet-sitting business, for three years. It has proven to be the perfect setup for Benda, her customers and the dogs. Benda was living in San Diego when she got her dog, Buddy, and she says her whole life changed.
Lesa Hobright-Turner says she is “one of those people who will always have a dog.” After the family dog passed away in 1995, she began frequenting the Animal Humane Society in Woodbury “just to get my dog fix,” she says. It was there that she met Murphy, a surprisingly composed German Shepherd/Lab pup who charmed her instantly and would eventually change her life.
