We’ve had so much fun this week! New pooches, new friends, and some visits from some of our less frequent campers. We’ve all enjoyed the cooler and more temperate days, as they mean livelier playmates for everyone.

September is Next!
Have you been noticing all those “back to school” ads? I’m sorry to be the bearer of sad tidings, but those are the harbinger of hard work to come – time to get down to work – nose to the grindstone…
The party’s over and it’s time to draft your “What I did on my summer vacation”.

That means it’s also time to get your updated reservations in for your pooches’ time at Scampers!

Did you know?
Many people foods are safe to share with your dogs

Love to share with your pooch? Here is a list of foods you can share with your dog with confidence (assuming your pooch has not food sensitivities or allergies!)
Peanut butter, in small amounts – a great solution at pill giving time!
Cheese and cottage cheese, again only in small amounts.
Lean meats, with small bones removed
Rice, brown rice, bread, pasta
Fresh fruits – apples, oranges, bananas, watermelons (remove all seeds)
Vegetables – peas, carrots, broccoli, green beans, zucchini, cooked potatoes (not raw)

Beware these people foods which are NOT safe to share with your dogs
Always approach sharing foods with your pooch with caution, however, as there are many people foods that should never reach your pooches’ lips – many are in fact deadly; for example, chocolate, macadamia nuts, fruit pits and seeds, caffeine, grapes and raisins, onions and garlic, avocado, alcohol, junk food and table scraps which probably contain the inedible parts of the meat – bones and fat, and sugar and salt. Raw eggs, meat and fish can also be dangerous, as they may infect your dog with e.coli or Salmonella, deadly bacteria and parasites.

Pooch need a spruce-up?
Chris Sugarbaker, Cut-N-Run’s groomer-in-chief, will drive his studio to Scampers on Tuesday, Sept 4th.

If your pooch needs a spruce-up, be sure to claim a spot with Chris right away – his schedule has filled up completely on more than one occasion.
