Every spring, New York City's Dachshund Spring Fiesta draws hundreds of sausage dogs from the tri-state area to Greenwich Village. The wiener dogs and their owners congregate around Washington Square Park's marble triumphal arch, an iconic symbol of downtown Manhattan and one of the most recognizable monuments in the NYC metro area.
We had the privilege of attending this year's fiesta with our lil sausage celeb Django. Check out our video montage of the biggest dachshund meetup in the nation, and let us know what you think in the comments!
With ticks and other disease-spreading insects proliferating throughout the United States, dog parents today are increasingly concerned about protecting themselves and their pups from Lyme disease. Lyme disease is commonly transmitted to dogs and humans through bites from blacklegged ticks and can cause serious symptoms and illness.
We partnered with the Cynthia Lopez, editor of Pet Life Today, on this important topic. Here is everything you need to know about Lyme Disease in dogs including preventative care, symptoms, and treatment options.
Last year Mike and I took our dachshund Django on our honeymoon to Europe. We had a great time with Django in France and Italy and highly recommend international pet travel when it's done right!
We outlined everything our friends and followers need to do to successfully bring their dog to Europe. But what about our international friends who want to take their pet to the USA? Well, guys, this post is for you!
Here is everything you need to do to take your dog to the USA.
Mike and I started planning our first pet-friendly trip to London, England a few weeks ago. We've already been to Europe with Django once and even got him a EU Pet Passport in Paris. Planning the trip to London should be easy, right? Wrong. We quickly discovered that no airline offers in-cabin pet travel to the United Kingdom; pets are only allowed to fly to the UK in the hold.
The good news is there are safe travel options for getting to the UK with your dog without having to put him or her in cargo. Here are the best travel options for taking your pet dog or cat to the UK.
