KARE 11 - Cabin Tips For Your Pooch

We recently stopped into KARE 11 to share some great cabin tips for your pooch, and we brought an awesome dog up for adoption from SecondHand Hounds.




Summer is cabin time for many Minnesotans, and if you’re taking your dog to the family retreat, safety is important.

Bubbly Paws co-owner Keith Miller shares five great tips to help keep your best friend healthy and happy:

1. Protect dog from bugs with
2. Bring life jacket for your dog
3. Provide water and shade
4. Make sure your pet has an ID tag
5. Bring first aid kit

Friday’s segment featured an American pit bull terrier named Mercedes. He needs a loving forever home.
Mercedes is available for adoption now through Secondhand Hounds.

Featured Rescue Dog - Aloha

Aloha - available for adoption in Minneapolis, MNMeet Aloha who is available for adoption through MUSHR.  Aloha is a very sweet girl and was being fostered by one of our employees at Pampered Pooch Playground.   She is cream colored with brown eyes and weighs about 40 pounds. The family that adopts Aloha will need to take puppy classes and continuously work on her socialization. While Aloha is extremely timid, with a little patience she can show a lot of affection. She has a very gentle disposition but is a bit shy with strangers. Aloha is crate trained for day and night and is housebroken. She loves carrying around toys and anything else that is left on the ground. You can always find a large collection of toys stashed in her crate. She does extremely well with dogs of all sized and would do well in a multiple pet household. Aloha also does well with cats. On a leash, she does okay walking at your side except when passing people and dogs or if there is too much commotion around. She may do better in a quieter neighborhood. Aloha gets along very well with the resident dog who has helped Aloha learn how to play and just be a dog. Because of the need for Aloha's ongoing socialization and because she has learned so much from the resident dog, we are looking for a home for Aloha that already has a stable dog to help continue to teach Aloha the ropes of being a great dog. We have no doubt she will make a wonderful part of someone's family in time. She has a lot of potential and is making great progress already!  Click here for more pictures on her profile.  If you adopt Aloha, we will give you a free self-service bath at Bubbly Paws Dog Wash.
