Puppy Bowl at Purr’n Pooch Pet Resorts

Puppy Bowl at Purr'n Pooch Pet Resorts

In celebration of Super Bowl XLIX, pups will be showing their team spirit and partying with friends at Purr’n Pooch Pet Resorts! Daycare and boarding dogs are invited to join us for our annual Puppy Bowl on Friday, January 30  from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at both Purr’n Pooch locations of 86 Gilbert Street West in Tinton Falls and 2424 Highway 35 in Wall, NJ.

The pups will kick off the day by tailgating with food squeaky toys and football shaped dog treats. They’ll be dressed in their favorite team jerseys playing friendly games with each other throughout the day with a football thrown by the Purr’n Pooch staff. New York Giants are always a favorite among the players, but the Philadelphia Eagles fans make their way in, too! We will also have a mock Super Bowl game where the dogs pretend to be on the teams that are playing in Super Bowl XLIX and see who wins.

Treats and prizes will be given to the dogs throughout the day. Dogs of all sizes and breeds will play on the playgrounds in Wall and Tinton Falls between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. The dogs that are attending for the whole day will be going inside periodically to keep warm.

Purr’n Pooch technicians will be supervising and playing with the dogs all day. Dogs must register to attend before the event. The daily rate is $35. Please call 732.842.4949 (Tinton Falls) and 732.528.8100 (Wall) to make reservations for your pup.

Photos from the Puppy Bowl will be posted on Purr’n Pooch’s Facebook Page and website after the event.

Your pup can party with us throughout the year! Purr’n Pooch Pet Resorts also hold other themed parties for holidays such as Mardi Gras, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, Valentine’s Day, as well as birthday parties.

10 Ways to Prepare for a New Pet Over the Holidays

10 Ways to Prepare for a New Pet Over the Holidays
The holiday season is a very special time of year, filled with joy and celebration. Decorations are everywhere, families gather together and gifts are exchanged. Typically, the gifts we give and receive are traditional or items like clothing, toys, games and household items. But what if Santa decides to bring a very special gift this year? One that can’t be placed in a box and wrapped with a bow. The kind of gift that won’t be forgotten about or replaced in a few months. What if Santa decides to place a new pet underneath your tree?

Welcoming a new dog or cat into your family can be very exciting, especially during such a cheerful and joyous occasion. But at the same time, it can also be hectic and stressful, especially if you are unprepared. Unlike other holiday gifts, a new pet takes a lot of forethought, planning and preparation. If your new pet is a holiday gift for your family, be sure everyone is on board and prepared for a new addition. Many animal organizations and shelters advise against giving pets as surprise gifts – owning a pet is personal decision that requires commitment and responsibility.

As long as everyone is ready for a new furry family member, this may be the best holiday gift you’ll ever receive (your pet will feel the same way!).

Here are 10 ways to  prepare for a new pet during the holidays.

  • Establish house rules with other members of your household before your new pet arrives. If you wish to restrict your pet from using your furniture, gently and consistently discourage him from doing so. Have a comfortable bed available for your pet and encourage him to use it as a place to relax.
  • Discuss the responsibilities of caring for your pet with other members of your household. Will there be a schedule for dog walking? Will someone feed him in the morning, while someone else feeds him at night? Will everyone be involved with training? If so, discuss the training techniques you’ll use in order to stay consistent.
  • Make training fun for your pet and it will be easier for him to learn. Maintain patience, compassion and respect. This will build confidence and make the training process fun for you both. Always view things from his point of view and you will build a bond with your pet and achieve fantastic results and a lifelong friendship.
  •  If you have children, discuss the dos and don’ts for interacting with your new pet. Jumping and yelling can cause a dog to get upset and sometimes snap, especially if he’s the nervous, so it’s best if your child stays as calm as possible around him, at least until he settles in. Cats prefer to be on the ground so let your child know not to carry your feline around the house. Your child should know not to approach your dog from behind, as it could frighten or startle him.
  • If adopting your pet, ask for his medical records. If your pet is a puppy or kitten, he should have been to a veterinarian at least once. He will also need to visit a veterinarian several times during his first year to receive vaccinations and twice a year after he’s one year old. You will need those vaccinations in order to board your pet while on vacation.
  • If you have other pets in your household, make sure they are up-to-date on their shots and in good health before introducing your new pet.
  • Purchase the important items your new pet will need upon his arrival. A collar and leash, bowls, food and lots of toys and bones are all necessities. If he has toys of his own, he’ll be less likely to play with things that are off limits, like your personal items.  If a new feline friend will be joining your family, have scratching posts and perches available.
  • Just like small children, pets can be very curious. Keep them safe and out of trouble by pet-proofing your home. Place chemicals and harmful substances on high shelves or if they are in low cabinets, use childproof latches. Keep trash cans covered or hidden away. Look for holes and small nooks that your new pet could get himself into and block them. Keep any harmful food out of reach. Put away children’s toys and games, especially small ones that can cause choking. Move electrical and phone wires out of reach of chewing.
  • Upon your pet’s arrival, your house may have some holiday decorations that are hazardous to pets. Tinsel and ornaments, dangling lights, candles, gift wrap ribbon, chocolate, fat trimmings and bones from dinner, and certain nuts can all cause harm to your pet. Also, keep in mind that some holiday plants are poisonous. Christmas tree pine needles, holly, mistletoe and poinsettias are toxic to pets. Be sure to keep all these things away from your new pet, as well as other pets in your house.
  •  When your new pet arrives, try not to pay less attention to your other pets as they may get jealous. Introduce them, let them get to know each other and spend quality time together both outside enjoying walks, in the yard and inside playing with toys.
Bringing a pet into a home is a great joy and all of us at Purr’n Pooch Pet Resorts hope to meet your new family member soon. Plan and prepare correctly and you’ll have started a beautiful friendship this holiday season.

“Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” Anatole France.

Protect Your Pets During Fireworks Displays Across the Jersey Shore

Protect Your Pets During Fireworks Displays Across the Jersey Shore

Many people are unaware that the Fourth of July is the most dangerous holiday for pets. According to national statistics, animal control officials across the country see a 30-60% increase in lost pets each year between July 4th and 6th. In fact, July 5th is one of the busiest days of the year for shelters. Thousands of pets are lost each holiday due to the big bangs of those spectacular but scary fireworks displays. These unexpected and loud noises put our pets in a spooked state of confusion causing them to run away from home by escaping out windows or fences.

Sadly, many cats and dogs are never returned to their owners because they lack identification like an i.d. tag or chip. Identification is key to being reunited safely with your pet.

There are, however, some things you can do to ensure your pet is relaxed and entertained during the fireworks. Read more about them on our post, “Five Ways to Keep Pets Safe During Fireworks”. The article highlights pet games as well as treats, toys and accessories. Available at our retail stores, the Thundershirt, for example, can help ease anxiety in pets and distract them from those big bangs and have them concentrating more on big fun with the family.

Most importantly, it’s vital that you know the days and times when your community is going to host its celebrations so you can either protect your pet in the comfort of your home or make accommodations to board your dog or cat at your local pet care facility.

Here’s a list of popular Jersey Shore fireworks displays to prepare you and your pet for fireworks all summer long:

  • Atlantic Highlands Fireworks: July 4 at 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
  • Point Pleasant Beach Fireworks: July 3 at 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm
  • Manasquan Fireworks & More: July 3 at 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm
  • Ocean Township Fireworks: July 3 at 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
  • Brick Summerfest: July 3 at 7:00 pm – July 4 at 10:00 pm
  • Asbury Park Fireworks: July 4 at 9:00 pm – 9:30 pm
  • Bradley Beach Fireworks, Dance & Swim: July 4 at 9:30 pm – 10:00 pm
  • Long Branch NJ Oceanfest & Fireworks: July 4 at 10:45 am – 10:30 pm
  • West Long Branch Fireworks: July 4 at 9:00 pm – 10:30 pm
  • Wildwood 4th of July: July 4 at 11:00 am – 11:00 pm
  • Seaside Heights Fireworks: July 4 at 9:30 pm – 10:00 pm
  • Ocean City July 4th: July 4 at 9:00 am – 10:00 pm
  • LBI Fireworks: July 4 at 9:00 pm – 9:30 pm
  • Atlantic City Fireworks: July 4 at 9:30 pm – 11:00 pm

WEEKLY DISPLAYS

  • Wildwood has fireworks on the Beach every Friday night in July and August.
  • Point Pleasant offers fireworks displays each Thursday in July and August.
  • Seaside Heights has Wednesday fireworks from June through September.
  • Asbury Park has a fireworks show each Wednesday night of the summer.

From all of us at Purr’n Pooch, we wish you a very happy and safe Fourth of July together, pets and people. The Jersey Shore has so many fun activities to offer and although fireworks may be exciting for people, we must remember that the Fourth and other fireworks celebrations throughout the summer are fearful times for pets.

Pet Safety During the Holidays -Tips from Purr'n Pooch

For many families, it can be easy to overlook the needs of our pets once the chaos of planning and parties arrives, so we hope you find our tips helpful for staying safe throughout the season. Pet owners can maintain a sense of calm around the home by staying on schedule for feeding times, sleep, exercise and play. Pets can also sense when we are anxious so keeping to their regular routine is key to giving them the reassurance they seek during any new, unfamiliar activity. Whether you’re entertaining at home or traveling for the holidays, you’ll want to avoid some of the dangers that may have you “paws” for alarm instead of enjoying time together as a family.

Beware of the Dangers to Pets During the Holidays

It is the most wonderful time of the year … or is it? While the holidays are a great time to get together with family and friends, the season is also a time of stressful hustle and bustle.  From decorations and parties to holiday travel, November through New Year’s can be a time of big change that tend to turn our pet’s world upside down. For four-legged friends that aren’t used to visitors, holiday gatherings can cause them to become over excited and before you know it your mild mannered pet can turn into a jumping, barking, food grabbing dog. Try introducing your pet to the idea of entertaining by hosting small get-togethers to work on his party manners before the big holiday bash. If your pet still isn’t Mr. Petiquette by party day be sure to set up a safe and peaceful space for him away from the noise and commotion of the holiday gathering complete with water, toys, treats and a bed.

During the holidays, homes also fill with the enticing aromas that come from baking cookies and pies to roasting turkeys. These temptations are hard to resist for anyone, man or pup. While for us the biggest problem might be buttoning our pants after feasting, the repercussions are far more dangerous for our four-legged friends. Veterinarians report higher cases of toxicity during the winter, the result of getting into dangers like baker’s chocolate, artificial sweeteners , table scraps and bones. Keep these dangerous ingredients far from sight and smell and make sure that your guests especially children know not to slip your dog tasty morsels under the holiday table.

For many the holidays aren’t complete until all of the trimmings are displayed around the house. Much of your pretty, shiny decor however attracts cats and dogs and they can suffer injuries such as cuts in their mouths to intestinal blockages from swallowing decorations. Candles and twinkling holiday lights can also cause cause serious dangers. For pets that like to chew, electrical shock can result from gnawing on light wires that run along the floor, tree and windows. Candles should be placed in hard to reach areas as well so that curious pets cannot reach them causing burns or a fire. There are also many toxic holiday plants, which can lead to diarrhea, vomiting, oral irritations, and even death. The most common plants to avoid are holly, mistletoe, poinsettias, and pine needles. Even the single leaf from a lily plant can be lethal to cats.

Holiday Travel Safety for Pets

Many people will take to the highways during the holidays traveling to visit family and friends and often with their pets, which can bring about a whole new set of dangers to consider. Preparation is key to keeping your pet safe and enjoying the open road. Make sure he travels in the car in a crate, microchipped and wearing i.d. tags so that he is protected and found in case of an accident or unexpected car door opening. Don’t forget to pack your pet’s favorite toys, blanket and his regular food. If your pet does not travel well, it’s best to have him stay at a boarding facility that you trust to supervise him 24-hours a day with plenty of exercise and TLC. You’ll rest better knowing he is safe and secure while you travel. If you’re considering a stay at Purr’n Pooch Pet Resorts, reserve your pet’s visit now as our cattery and dog suites book quickly.
