There’s a lot going on at The Watering Bowl. Check back here often to stay up on the latest. And be sure to check our facebook page to see how much fun we had at past events.
The TWB Hangover Contest is back. And this time, it has an agenda. This year, a photo of your dog in search of some R&R can help other dogs in search of a home.
We are spoiled with an abundance of talented, driven staff. They share our passion for dogs, and they always bring interesting experience to our cage-free canine community.
Take our black-belt-wearing, rattlesnake-rearing, former zoo intern and wolf sanctuary employee, Kristina. (more…)
You might still be scrambling to secure your plans for New Year’s Eve, but your dog already has a little something in mind.
In fact, they’ve been discussing it for a while around here. Turns out, dogs are better planners than we give them credit for. It’s a big, cage-free canine New Year’s Eve bash at The Watering Bowl. (more…)
The Watering Bowl Doggy Daycare has become a regular stop on Santa’s route.
And with a new location, we’ve added another date on the calendar for old St. Nick to pose with your pup.
Here’s the rundown:
Monday, 11/30 Brentwood 9:00-11:00am
Tuesday, 12/1 Dog Grove 9:00-11:00am
Monday, 12/7 South County 9:00-11:00am
It’s been a while since we’ve shone the staff spotlight on one of the amazing humans of our cage-free canine community. So, to make up for lost time (all the way back to June), we are way overcompensating by featuring three of our managers. One from each location.
We opened The Watering Bowl over half a decade ago with the dream of ingraining ourselves in dog culture and expanding to more locations in and around St. Louis.
Go ahead, we’ll wait. (more…)
It takes a lot to open a new location. It takes time and energy and long nights and more than a couple coats of paint.
But when it does finally open months and months later, and the dogs start coming in, it’s an amazing reminder of why we started all this in the first place. What could possibly be any more rewarding than seeing happy pups enjoying the new place?
Well, that’s exactly the question we asked ourselves.
The answer: using our official grand opening to raise money for rescue groups in our own backyard. (more…)
There’s a lot to be excited about with the new location at 5215 Manchester Avenue in the newly minted Dog Grove neighborhood.
It’s big. It’s convenient. It’s not that far from the new Ikea, so you can drop your dog off while you go shop for more furniture for your dog to enjoy.
There’s a ton of excitement beyond our ho-hum tail wagging we do every day at The Watering Bowl. New location, new home for Butt Sniffers Academy, new employees coming on board. It’s all positive, and we are enjoying every minute of it.
And one of the biggest pieces of news is that we are adding a partner to go along with our third location (ahem, at 5215 Manchester Ave). Jim Conger, our new Alpha Dog, has been getting his hands dirty at all three of our doggy daycare facilities, and he took a short break to tell us a little more about who he is, what he’s been doing and what he’s looking forward to.
Take a read.
Jim, you already have the job, so we’ll try not to make this interview too strenuous.
