Dog Days of Summer Fun
Enroll Russell-the-Ridgeback in animal trainer Tammy Goodreau’s day camp, where he’ll get to romp around with other four-legged friends during a rigorous O‘ahu trail hike, beach field trip, or fun and games on a day of adventure and fitness. Each three- or four-hour package includes pick up and drop off, personal and group training, and a consultation on your pup’s overall health and behavior. Now that’s a good dog – owner! Check out Doggie Fitness & Adventures for more info.
Pamper Hula-the-Heeler with Lanikai Bath and Body’s gentle mango-scented Poi Dog shampoo. Then grab one of their super-absorbent Soggy Doggy terrycloth towels, (there’s one for small and big dogs) and use the pockets to keep her from wriggling away in one hand, and massage her with the other until she’s fluffy and dry. Click here for more info on both. While you’re at it, check out LB&B’s spanking new location next to Morning Brew. Lanikai Bath and Body, 600 Kailua Road , 808.262.3260
