Smiles & Purrs' has launched a podcast!
You can find it at www.soundcloud.com/saraspetstop
Week One I spoke with Trish Hart who owns A Country Pup Pet Salon at 1023 S Main St. in Hampstead. You can also find her on Facebook by searching A Country Pup Pet Salon. We discussed grooming questions, shared advice and tips for at-home grooming in between spa days for your pets. I also shared information on a recall from Hills, a link for more information on that recall can be found on Smiles & Purrs' Facebook page @smilesandpurrs.
We also featured our pet of the week - Walt Frame!
Week Two I sat down with Megan Anne from The Zookeeper's Companion LLC and we talked about how to find the best pet care provider for your pets. You can find her website at https://thezookeeperscompanion.com/
and on Facebook @thezookeeperscompanion, where you can find links to
her Instagram and Tik Tok pages! I also shared a recall announcement for certain lots of Special Kitty wet food - the lot numbers can be found through a link on our Facebook page.
For Feb 28th's episode, I'll be interviewing Steve Benden, a friend and musician who is donating a portion of all song sales to animal rescue for the month of March. More details to follow and be sure to subscribe to Sara's Pet Stop on Soundcloud for all new episodes!
Smiles & Purrs is going to be a vendor at the Baltimore Humane Society's DogFest!
September 21st, 2019 10am - 4pm
1601 Nicodemus Road, Reisterstown, MD 21136
Just as the flyer says!
So excited to be organizing this event for a great cause.
I also hope for this to be an opportunity for
emerging and unknown artists to gain exposure.
As an artist myself, I know the struggle is real. :)
Smiles & Purrs merch is now available!
New items to be added soon so check back often!
A portion of all sales is donated to animal charities.
Just a quick announcement regarding the complimentary meet and greets we provide - beginning April 2nd, all meet and greets scheduled for pets who are fearful, highly protective of owners/property, or possibly aggressive, will include a 10-15 minute period of the owners and Liz and/or I stepping outside, and then either she or I going in alone to interact with the pet as we would while the owners are away. This ensures that all potential situations regarding aggression or fear based aggression can be assessed and properly planned for. Pets develop a unique connection and comfort level with their owners that outsiders simply won't have with that pet; pets who show no sign or very subtle signs of aggression with their owners can be far more aggressive toward strangers. Sometimes the pets are far more receptive to strangers when their owners aren't present, sometimes their fear or aggression worsens. There are many variables to consider and there are two priorities Smiles & Purrs takes very seriously: Providing the best care for your pets and home and ensuring the safety of everyone - those on four and two legs. For these reasons, meet and greets with dogs with possible behavioral issues will include this period of stepping outside and conducting a mock visit, so to speak. :) - Sara
