September has arrived and brings with it all the benefits the cooler weather – breaking out your hoodie, sending the kids back to school, and my favorite – pumpkin-flavored EVERYTHING! Besides that, it also ushers in about 2 months of awesome events to share with your dog!
We love going to these events as a company because it gives us an opportunity to see our clients stop by our booth to say HI! It also gives us a chance to spend time together as a team. Often, we work independently and don’t get to work together. It’s also great to take turns leaving the booth to walk around the events, check out new pet products, meet other business owners and of course – OOGLE at all the dogs who come to the events.
What does it mean for you? An awesome opportunity to bring your dog out for some fun each weekend! You’ll get to enjoy the quality time with your family and pooch as you walk around the events meeting local pet businesses, talk to other pet owners, grab a bite to eat and don’t forget –
