The Watering Bowl
cage-free canine community doggie daycare boarding training

A day at The Watering Bowl Doggy Daycare & Boarding may look like a whole lot of running, playing and slobbering, but it’s also a lot of learning, leading and following.

That is, until you jolt awake in the middle of the night, when you remember the one February holiday you almost forgot to celebrate: National Pet…

YOU + TOYS = BEER

January 7, 2021

Good news! Christmas is coming early. Of course, some might say it’s coming late, but that’s just not how we see things. Why so much philosophy in a blog post, you ask? Because it’s the first ever Pet Toy Drive for the APA—an idea so cute, so simple, that it really needs no further explanation.…

ADOPTION IS THE ANSWER

January 7, 2021

If you felt a little lost in 2020, or if you’re carrying some of that feeling into the new year, you’re not alone. In fact, we know a group just like that—the homeless animals of St. Louis. And if there’s one truth we’ve learned over the years, it’s that helping others is a surefire way…
