Elliot has found us a new home! With Elliot working so hard, we have had increased inquiries for boarding, and we decided it was time to expand! We have secured a new boarding location to better serve our growing number clients. It is a beautiful spot with plenty of land for all of Elliot’s fur friends to run and play! Elliot bought plenty of balls, Frisbees, and fun toys for him and all of his buddies. The location is completely secured, with a PVC/concrete safeguarded fence around the property. There is even enough space for a pool! And don’t say anything, but Elliot told me he has future plans to build one for him and his friends to swim! We are beyond excited to be able to offer this new feature to our clients and we cannot wait for our fur clients to indulge in their new vacation spot!
With so many brands out there today it can be difficult to decide what the best selection of dog food will be best for your pet. I think most people get advice from their vets on what brands to use and which ones not to; but on the other hand I think that many people just go to the store and grab whatever looks yummy for their pet. What those people don’t always know is that there are so many brands out there that are just flat out false advertising their “organic” and “all natural” dog food. Just like we as humans need to be cautious about the chemicals and artificial fillers in our food, our fur babies do too! Feeding your dog food that has chemicals and low-quality ingredients can lead to both physical and mental health issues like obesity, digestive problems, poor temperament, and lack of focus. I was recently shown a great article on this dilemma, where researchers, expert contributors, and dog owners gave their two cents on health and safety of dog food over the last several years, how to look for food that is beneficial for your dog, and which ones they found to be the best.

Let me start off by saying THANK YOU POOCH PARTY PACKS! These guys are great! As a pet service company, Elliot’s House was given a sample pack from pooch party packs to try, as they take pride in supporting pet businesses across the country and work collaboratively to provide their clients with the best products around. Well let me tell you Elliot sure did enjoy his pooch party pack! Each pack comes with toys, treats, grooming supplies, and all types of cool high quality dog products. All you have to do is choose the size of your dog, choose a plan and get the pack in order to start the fun. Coming from a picky pooch, Elliot loved his party pack, including all his toys and yummy treats. It is a super easy service at a great price. Your fur baby will love Pooch Party Packs!
As most people know, dogs are sooooo good for humans! People who own dogs have longer life spans, improved cardiovascular fitness, increased self-esteem, and lower levels of depression due to the companionship that a dog provides. The relationship developed between human and canine is like no other and if you ask me, living in a home without a dog just doesn’t feel right. If you’re looking for a dog, pleaseeeeee rescue/adopt! There are so many little guys out there that need homes. To be honest, I’m secretly looking to rescue the fur love of my life and bring him/her home immediately! So I’ve been reading a lot lately about rescues and sheltered animals (just getting immersed in the loving relationships developed between human and orphan fur baby), and I’m inspired by the countless amazing stories of these incredible animals changing lives.
I recently encountered a warm story about a woman who has rescued two pit bulls; a breed with so many stigmas attached to its name. Being somewhat concerned herself about a “bully breed”, as she had no prior experience with this, she took a chance on Sookie in 2011 and then Ivy in 2013. Soon after she realized how misunderstood pit bulls are, and set off on her own little mini-mission to spread the word! She has various social media pages (Facebook, YouTube and Instagram) where she posts pictures, stories, and videos of her pitties on all sorts of adventures and in all types of costumes. Through her pages she hopes people will see how amazing rescue and shelter animals really are, and destroy any stigmas attached to “bully breeds”.
For those of you who don’t know, Elliot’s house was inspired by Elliot; a rescued pit bill from Compton, CA. Our founder and CEO, Carol, rescued him and it changed her life, just like so many of the stories I’ve been reading. Give them a chance. These animals can be some of the most loving, inspiring, intelligent, and life-changing companions you’ll ever meet.
“Look deep into the eyes of any animal, and then for a moment, trade places, their life becomes as precious as yours and you become as vulnerable as them. Now smile if you believe all animals deserve our respect and our protection, for in a way, they are us, and we are them.” -Philip Ochoa Board Member, ALL FOR ANIMALS
