When we think about a dog saving someone’s life, we often think of it in as literal a sense as we can. We imagine the dog pulling someone from a flaming wreck, or scaring off some violent home invaders, but what if the story is not that literal, but just as exceptional? That, my friends, is the story I want to tell about me and the dog that saved my life, but in a very different way than what you would expect.
I can’t stop barking to all of my friends about the amazing article from the Huffington Post featuring my favorite exercise equipment…the dogPACER dog treadmill!! All of my hard-work and skills on the treadmill are really paying off…the world (almost…B.O.L.) is taking notice!
Check out the amazing article here! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/14/dog-treadmill-_n_1776329.html
You can read all about many of my dog friends, the fancy shop in LA that carries the dogPACER and read about how the company was started by my dad and uncle and how we really are changing dogs lives!
dogPACER is also going GLOBAL!! You hear me right…global!! An article that ran in the Associated Press was viewed in over 95 news and media outlets in the US and Internationally!!! Woofie!!! I want to meet some french poodles and King Charles Cavalier Spaniels from England…

I am such a popular dog…I love all of the great emails I am receiving from dog friends that are enjoying exercising on their dogPACER dog treadmills. I am also so happy that dog friends that are available for adoption are running on our dog treadmill to get in shape and show off their skills for the parents that are looking to adopt. I had to share some fun photos of dogs from the FUPI (Foreclosed Upon Pets, Inc.) group in Las Vegas. This group is so great, they rescue pets that were left in the homes that owners abandoned after their home was foreclosed on…can you imagine? You can see the pets available for adoption on the FUPI Facebook page…make sure to bark the information to your family and friends!! https://www.facebook.com/FUPILasVegas?ref=ts
I am always happy to help rescue and rehabilitation groups and my dad is just as committed to rescue efforts!! My dad and his business partner, Yaniv go to one or more rescue events a month to help raise awareness and funds for the wonderful organizations that rescue animals and help them find new forever homes.
I also got to go to The Dog House, one of my favorite dog boutiques in Las Vegas! They love me there…woof, woof! They have fun events that parents bring us dogs to so we can socialize, shop, snack on yummy and healthy treats…and run on the dogPACER dog treadmill!! The Dog House spokesdog, Mac is tons of fun and loves meeting new dog friends and showing off his skills running and jogging on the dogPACER.
Check out their page on Facebook too!! https://www.facebook.com/thedoghouseboutique?ref=ts
Have a fun and safe weekend!! Make sure to keep cool in the summer sun!! Woof, woof!!
Another great weekend is gone too soon. I spent the weekend in Salt Lake City with my dad and our newest addition to the dogPACER team, our certified dog trainer, Geralynn. We attended BlogPaws and I met so many other pet blogger friends. There were animal lovers of all kinds there! I even got a meet a ferret!! a little cute fuzzy animal that smells kinda funny…B.O.L.!
I met Tillman…wow, he is so talented! He can ride a skateboard and surf!! Woof, woof!! I had a fun time showing off my skills on the dogPACER dog treadmill for such a big doglebrity.
I also met Sully, he is one of the spokesdog models for Natural Balance…yummy stuff! He was filmed while walking on the dogPACER!! From powder-puff Chinese Crested dogs to sweet Bichon’s, so many dogs could not wait for their turn to run on our dog treadmill.
We also had a preview of some of the exciting things we are working on at dogPACER! Stay alert…I will be sharing as soon as I am allowed!! But if you saw how much I am wagging my tail, you would be begging me to tell you…oh, I hate keeping secrets from all of my dog friends…soon, I promise!!
BlogPaws was so fun! So many pets and their families sharing great products, information, blogs and the treats and toys kept coming! They even had doggie yoga and special events just for our parents…they went after we all went to bed…silly humans, don’t they know they should invite us to every party! B.O.L.
I know I need my doggie beauty sleep, so I didn’t mind too much.
When dad was out, I uploaded fun photos on our Instagram account and tweeted some of my new friends about all of the fun we had!! My paws were so busy sharing information on our social media sites! I am happy to have so many more animal friends that share the same joy in blogging and sharing fun photos, videos and stories on social media sites.
You can see a lot more on our Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and in my blog…just to name a few…
Make sure to send your parents to our website so they can order you your very own dogPACER dog treadmill!! www.dogpacer.com
Did you know that there are tons of “Special Pet Holidays”?? You heard my bark right…pet holidays!! And many are national!! Being in the “business”, I have to know these things…that is the business that makes the best dog treadmill…in the world!!
Don’t believe me? Google it! I’m just barking at you…I will let you know how to find out about these fun dates…make sure your parents know so that you get extra attention during these holidays!!
January has an entire month devoted to training your dog (something we in the dogPACER team know about all to well). Dog training is important!! I was trained by experts before my dad adopted me. Since my dad is one of the founders of the dogPACER, I was the obvious choice to be the dog spokesmodel. My title was recently updated to Chief Canine Officer (CCO). Wag with me…
Other fun holidays in January are National Dress Your Pet Day, Change a Pet’s Life Day and National Pet Travel Safety Day. WOW…and that’s just some of them. This is another reason that I am proud to be the spokesmodel and Chief Canine (aka-DOG) Officer for dogPACER…because we really are changing dogs lives.
Check out this website for more holidays…make sure your parents put your holidays on the calendars!! http://www.dogtipper.com/fun/pet-holidays
Today is National Pet Day!! I’m so excited I can barely hold my tail still for a second to type. Tonight one of our favorite local dog boutiques is having a “Paw-Tay”… It is going to be fun for dogs and parents. If you live in Vegas, you should join in the fun…beg extra and I know your parents will take you. If not, you should go there sometime…they are really nice and they always have the best treats, toys and more…Here is their website.!! http://gooddogfoodcompany.com/the-dog-house
Another fun weekend for me!! I went to the Wag-A-Tail Walk-A-Thon (WATWAT for short) on Saturday and met so many dogs!!
Saturday I was at the WATWAT to benefit the Las Vegas Valley Humane Society. This is the 16th year that they have had the WATWAT…it was a tail wagging good time! WOOF!!
I met so many new dog friends at this event!! Parents from all over the Las Vegas area brought their dogs to Kellogg-Zaher Park to walk 1-2 miles and enjoy so many fun Easter themed activities!! As they said, it was a “hip hoppity fun time”!!
I love getting out and socializing with new dog friends and their parents…this was especially fun because we had a booth and had fun showing off my skills on the treadmill and letting them try the treadmill out for themselves…let me woof something in you ear…THEY LOVED IT!!
There was a Polished Pooch Modeling Contest too…and guess what the winner got….are you wagging with anticipation… YOU GUESSED IT…they won a dogPACER!! Here is a photo of the winning dog, Gucci!!! Isn’t she adorable??
I didn’t enter the contest L but I still had a fun time watching so many dogs strut their stuff on the “dog-walk”…that’s right, it is no longer a catwalk…it is a dog-walk. Woofeee….
Can you tell I am still excited over this? If you want to meet me and try your skills on the dogPACER, you should go to the website and see where I will be next! I have a full calendar this month…so I am sure there will be some event you can get your parents to take you to so you can meet me.
You can also meet Yaniv…we call him the “Other Dog Whisperer”…Woof,woof, woooooffff….But really…he is so great with all of the new dogs that aren’t so sure about the dogPACER at first. Just because they see me enjoying my runs on the dogPACER does not mean they completely know what it is like…Yaniv is great with all dogs!! He had so many dogs up and running in just a few minutes…again, we think he secretly whispers something to all of the dogs that make them wag their tails and walk or run on the treadmill on just a couple minutes. The best part…their parent’s proud faces…I’ve seen some parents cry!! HONEST, I have!!
I’ve added some fun photos from Saturday on our Facebook page!! Make sure to LIKE us and Follow for extra photos, videos and more stuff that my paws can’t type in the blog…I’d never have time to roll over if I had to keep up with everything that is happening at dogPACER…let’s just say that I am one super busy German Shepherd…and I love my life!
Don’t forget to join the dogPACER “pack” on our website and you can share your stories, photos and videos…and you can ask your parents to submit you to be our “dog-of-the-month” in our monthly newsletter. I can’t wait to meet new friends as they join our pack…
