Doing Well by Doing Good - Gifts for Pups & Kitties

Sometimes the words "OH MY GOSH" ring more often than "HAPPY HOLIDAYS" as we approach the end of the countdown to Christmas.


Let's make it easy for you if you have any of those OMG moments concerning gifts for your pup or kitty or for those at the home where you were suddenly invited to a party or dinner or to just sip the eggnog.


Hamilton Dog House has it all - right here in the 'hood - and every penny of profit goes to Sean Casey Animal Rescue which just happens to be next door.  At 155 East Third Street in Brooklyn 11218 they are

It's Fall, the Calendar is "Ticking" -  here's what you need to know about ticks and your dog

As the weather cools, many reinvigorated Barkers are heading to the hiking trails with their pups.  Disease bearing ticks have been there all summer - actually they have become year 'round scourges in the Northeast.


Brooklyn Bark caught up with Dr. Chris of North Slope Veterinary who shares that he gets questions from patients about ticks all year. 

Brooklyn Bark:  Are there ticks in Brooklyn? Do they spread disease?

Dr. Chris:  Yes, there are ticks in New York City and Brooklyn. The most common tick is the American Dog Tick.  These ticks

It's Brooklyn Cyclones "Dog Day"!

Brooklyn Dogs, their people and their dog walkers are gearing up for one of summer's highlights - Bark in the Park.  We hope they are as excited as we are.

At Brooklyn Bark we love making pups and their people happy - by the way, kitties, too but we don't expect many cats coming out for the game.

So, what have we done to make the night a success?

Brooklyn Bark has created four types of fun for pups and their owners.

  1.   Doggie Bags.  Unlike the restaurant leftovers that you bring home to turn green in the back of your fridge, both the bags and the contents are useful for pup and for you.  We have stuffed them with treats, frizbees, high quality sample products and lots of discount coupons.  These are all in a non-woven tote owners can reuse and reuse.

  2. Tennis balls.  Lots and lots of tennis balls for pup to proudly take home.

  3. &          Raffle.  More doggie products.  Baskets of great toys and treats from Kong and Zukes plus gift certificates for dog training and for people eating.

  4.   &     Emergency envelope.  Wallet card with poison control contact and 24-hr. Brooklyn vet info.  Door sticker alerting first responders that furry ones are abiding (and might be hiding) inside.

Come by our booth to pick up goodies for pup and you.  We'll be in the picnic area. Very easy to find.  Just let pup's nose lead you to where your dinner is being grilled.

Dog Walkers, Dog Owners: "Pet-Away" with Your Dog

They have close to 200 acres with 2 lakes where pup may swim and 27 miles of hiking and biking trails and stunning gardens.  They have doggie beds in your room (upon request) and treats at the front desk.  They have a restaurant on premises and can arrange pet sitting if you want to “get away” for a massage or to go shopping or to dine in town or attend the races at Lime Rock or tour Millbrook Vineyard.

Interlaken Country Inn near the Housatonic River in Lakeville CT is two hours from the City, a trip you can drive or actually make most of the way on dog-friendly Metro North.  Ask directions when you reserve.  And ask for a car to meet you at the train station.

At Interlaken you can be pampered, you can meet nature, you can explore land and water with your pup or without.  No matter what combination you choose of excitement and serenity, you can share it with pooch or leave her with a very able pet sitter the Inn will gladly provide.


Brooklyn Barkers receive a $10 per night discount from now until the end of the year.  Just identify yourself when you book by phone 800-222-2909.

A little piece of heaven on earth for you and pup in nearby Connecticut  at $10 off per night for Barkers…..  what more can you want?
