We joined hundreds of sausage dogs at NYC's Dachshund Spring Fiesta (video)

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.

The event is organized by the Dachshund Friendship Club and promoted by the Washington Square Park Conservancy, @dachshundsofnyc and @djangothegent on Instagram, and other sausage dog celebrities to ensure max turnout.

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!

@DACHSHUNDSTATION Your dachshund/beagle mix is DEFINITELY welcome!!! All dachshunds, dachshund mixes, and dog lovers (with or without their own sausage dog) are welcome! We’ve had friends who don’t own dachshunds come hang out at the Dachshund Spring Fiesta and friends with non-dachshund dog breeds come join the fun :) The Dachshund Spring Fiesta is all-inclusive and so much fun for everyone :) We highly recommend joining this year! This year’s spring event is April 27, 2019 from 12-2pm – location is under the Washington Square Arch in Greenwich Village. Hope to see you there!

Oh, Wow, this event sounds so fun. I wonder if my dachshund/beagle mix would pass enough for a doxie?

BARK Bright Dog Dental Kit Review | Our Experience With the World’s First Dog Toothpaste and Dental Chew Combo
BARK Bright Dog Dental Kit Review | Our Experience With the World’s First Dog Toothpaste and Dental Chew Combo

June 27, 2022

Most dogs detest having their teeth brushed. Many pups won't even let their owners come near them with a doggy toothbrush! Brushing your dog's teeth is obviously not always easy or enjoyable. It is also very easy to forget to brush your pup's teeth on a daily basis. Fortunately, one very reputable company, BARK, came up with a way to make doggy dental health much easier for us pet parents.

We discovered BARK Bright’s enzyme-powered monthly doggy dental kit last year and have been fans ever since. BARK Bright's chicken-flavored dog toothpaste and dog sticks turbocharge the enzymes in dogs' mouths to keep their teeth clean and breath fresh. They are incredibly simple and effective, and the kits are conveniently shipped straight to your door.

Is BARK Bright right for your pup? In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we provide an in-depth overview and review of BARK Bright. It is based on our own experience getting the dog teeth cleaning kit for our sausage dog Django.

DJANGO Dog Blog Interview Dr. Ian Billinghurst, the Father of the Raw Dog Food Diet - djangobrand.com
Interview: Dr. Ian Billinghurst, the Father of the Raw Dog Food Diet

June 22, 2022

Dr. Ian Billinghurst is the father of the raw dog food diet and the founder of the BARF ('Biologically Appropriate Raw Food' or 'Bones and Raw Food') diet. In late 1993, he wrote Give Your Dog a Bone. The worldwide best seller is one of the most important books on dog nutrition ever written. It discussed why raw, whole food is best for your dog.

As an Australian veterinary surgeon with 50 years of experience, Dr. Billinghurst has one consistent message: raw-fed dogs are healthier than their kibble-fed counterparts.

We caught up with the long-time raw food champion and international lecturer to discuss the controversial raw dog food diet. We also dig into how gray wolves evolved into modern dogs, and we weigh the benefits of the raw dog food diet against safety risks like foodborne pathogens. Finally, we chew over how to solve the companion dog population boom and why so many veterinarians have raw emotions about raw pet food.

Tumble Rugs Review: Best Washable Rug for Toddlers, Pets, and Modern Living
Tumble Rugs Review: Best Washable Rug for Toddlers, Pets, and Modern Living

June 15, 2022 1 Comment

When Mike and I (Steph) moved into our new home earlier this year, we reveled in the spacious layout. Compared to our previous 650 square foot apartment in New York City, our modest new home felt like a palace. We soon realized, however, we had a lot of furnishing to do. Our hardwood floors, in particular, needed immediate protection. We have a boisterous 3-year old toddler, a long-haired dachshund, and a newborn. The last thing we wanted was for our toddler's toys, our baby's spit ups, and our pup's nails to destroy our new hardwood floors.

While researching the best rugs for families with kids and pets, Mike and I (Steph) came across Tumble. Tumble offers machine washable and spill-proof area rugs with modern patterns and colors. Mike and I ordered 3 rugs for our home—a kitchen runner and two area rugs—and we never looked back.

The following is an honest review and in-depth overview of Tumble rugs based on our family's personal experience using several of the rugs in our home.
