Barking At The Ball Drop

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…)

STAFF SPOTLIGHT: 3 MANAGERS

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 are pleased to introduce you to Jamie Chitwood, Amber Metz and Luke Dillon. They are from South County, Brentwood and the Dog Grove respectively.

Grand Opening To Benefit Rescues

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…)


Meet Jim

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.

Welcome To The Dog Grove

Now, try reading that headline again without singing it like Axl Rose.

Okay, glad that we got that out of the way. Once again, welcome to The Dog Grove. We’ve got fun and games.

Scratch that. Seriously, there’s a story to tell here, and it doesn’t involve an 80’s rock band. We’ll save that for another day.

This is about our third location. But it’s also bigger than that.

It’s about what this third location means to our community. We’re in an amazing part of town. It’s between the two of the most traveled highways in our city. And we’re on a lot people’s ways to work.

Our theory was that most people would enjoy their commutes to and from work just a little bit more if they had a dog with them.
