It has begun… whoo hooo!
Welcome to the new website for Bone Appetit Dog Bakery. Please be patient while we work out the kinks! Thanks.
The Dog Parade for this year has been cancelled. The weather is crazy hot and is forecasting even hotter for Thursday! Although we are sad there will be no parade, we must think of the safety of the dogs!
The Main Street Stroll will go on as scheduled but for humans only please! The Raffle to benefit EGAPL and Food4Paws will be held at 7:00pm. You do not need to be present to win, we will notify winners after raffle is completed.
Happy Spring Bone Appetiter’s!
Get out and sniff something!
We just wanted to give an update on the latest round of recalls. We are on it! We have been double and triple checking every bag in the store!
If you have any questions please feel free to call the store.
The hot weather is here! Bring on the beach days! Our dogs love the great weather too, but as their caretakers, we must be vigilant in their protection.
With temps in the low 70’s, the inside of a car can heat up to over 100 degrees in less than 20 minutes. Even with windows cracked it can get really hot, really fast. If you are running errands, leave your furry friends home in the cool AC of the house or in the nice shady yard.
The best way to prevent your dog from overheating or heat exhaustion in the car is to leave them at home!
If you plan on traveling with your dog this summer, here are a few easy tips:
Identification tags are a must. Please make sure your dog has current tags with correct phone numbers.
Invest in a car restraint for your dog. Doggie seatbelt tethers cost about $10.00 and are totally worth it! Securing your dog is safe and smart incase of any accident. Dog crates are also a great car safety option. Seatbelt tethers and dog crates will keep your dog safe and secure for all your road trips and just driving around town.
Pack plenty of food, treats and extra water. Some dogs really have a preference to drink their own water, and might refuse to drink other water, even when thirsty. If this is the case, remember to bring extra water in hot weather for a thirsty pup.
If you plan on taking your dog to the beach, please remember that hot asphalt parking lots and hot sand can singe a dog’s feet. Even with well-padded feet, they can be burned or cut. Also, find shade or a shelter at your beach site for your dog. Dogs can even get sunburned or sunstroke like humans!
If you plan on going camping, hiking or backpacking this summer, check ahead about the dog policies and restrictions. Many state campgrounds allow dogs but have rules and restrictions. Some state parks in New England do not allow dogs, even on leashes.
Remember, there is a difference between a state campground and a state park, and there can be different dog restrictions for each.
A quick phone call or online search would be suggested. If you are planning on staying at a dog-friendly hotel, again, check ahead for the rules and policies.
Summer is a great time to get out and have fun with your dog. Just try to use common sense and don’t leave your dog in the car when you are doing errands!
