After living in NYC for many years, Mike and I (Steph) moved to Oregon in mid 2016 with our dog Django. October rolled around, and Mike and I began to understand why Portlanders call rain the "Portland mist". It seemed to drizzle and rain continuously. Unfortunately, this meant that by the end of every hike, Django would be cold and soaked with a mud-caked underbelly.
Our rainy adventures in the Pacific Northwest inspired us to design two performance dog coats built to withstand cold, rain, mud, and snow: DJANGO's Reversible Puffer Dog Coat and City Slicker All Season Dog Jacket.
Mike and I (Steph) did not properly prepare our dachshund Django for his little brother's arrival. We now realize we should have done a lot more to help Django's transition from only child to big brother.
Here are several steps you can take to prepare your dog for your new arrival and ensure things go as smoothly as possible when you get home from the hospital. We also share helpful guidelines on how to safely introduce your dog to your newborn.
