Leash Updates …


  • Join us for a mobile adoption day in North Liberty on Sunday October 15th from noon-2. Great pets from Last Hope Animal Rescue will be joining us, come say hello.
  • Santa’s elves have told us there will be NO Santa photos this year. Too many conflicts at the north pole to make it to Iowa City. But, rumor has it a fun-raiser photo session is in the works for early spring.
  • Large cat furniture is back. Our selection has been thin, but both stores are stocked. Ms. Whiskers can watch those beautiful fall sunsets from a new height.
  • Thanks to those who joined us at the amazing Cyclo-cross World Cup last month. The inaugural Maxx’s doggy run sponsored by Nulo, was a hit and has been requested for next year. Those who made it to the booth received Nulo coupons. If you didn’t make it out, now is your chance to “treat” your pup to newly released Nulo treats. A free bag of soft training treats or jerky with every bag of Nulo purchased this month.
  • What an excellent way to celebrate harvest! Fromm has several new flavors of canned food for dogs and cats. All Fromm cans are made in their very own cannery in Wisconsin. We will be having sales on cans throughout October, so come in to take advantage of these great deals and new taste treats!

You can now outfit your dog to illuminate your early morning or evening walks with their very own niteizeclip-on light. These little lights pack a bright punch. Need something more than the clip-on light? Try the Nitehowl collar, with this ring around the Rover, everyone will see exactly where your pooch is from any angle. Want somethPicture3ing more subtle? Check out our new reflective collars and leashes.





Kitty Run Around…

We have a plethora of treat dispensing toys for dogs, but until recently there has been a dearth of such toys for cats. But no more… we have many locally made cat puzzle toys/food dispensers.  These rock Picture4and roll to keep your cat busy working to get the food to fall out. Our Snuggles quickly figured out how to push this around the room to get her breakfast. These toys are great for the cat that eats too fast or for the one that yowls at you continually to be fed. Stop in and pick up an info sheet on how these toys help with feline mental health.
