Since our boarding business has been a "bit" slow lately... we decided to make lemonade out of lemons! What better opportunity to do some MAJOR kennel renovations than when it is empty!? We removed the bulky cement walls in between the kennels and replaced them with nice white dividers. This provides more space/kennel, easier to clean, brighter and allows for converting 2 kennels into 1 to accommodate bookings with multiple dogs that require more room. We had the floors re-surfaced (less slippery and easier to clean). We also replaced both the outdoor kennel doors and the inside doors. Attached are some before & after photos to show the progress and the final result! Now we wait patiently for life to get back to normal... and when it does, we will be ready to care for your dogs

When one door closes, another opens...
On October 12, we sadly said goodbye to our Blue Picardy Spaniel "Truman". He was well known as our math dog extraordinaire in our Power Paws shows, but he was also one of the family and will be sadly missed. He passed away peacefully at the age of 11 (due to a serious heart murmur), getting ready for the daily hike, doing what he loved most, running!
Today we brought home our new addition "Boulder". He is a Newfoundland dog that we adopted through Newf Friends Rescue group. His pregnant mother was surrendered to the rescue group where she had Boulder and 6 other puppies. This grey & white bundle of energy is growing like a weed and has future inspirations of joining the Power Paws family!

Due to the recent extreme cold temperatures, we are careful to make sure that the dogs don't get too cold during play time. We have been shortening playtime, but increasing the number of times they get out to play to make up for it. It's surprising how much the dogs love the snow and even the little ones seem to choose the large snow drifts to plow through! Making "dog angels" is one of Lulu's favorite things to do!
February 10, 2015
We hope everyone is enjoying the snow, the dogs sure love it! Although this is our "off" season in terms of competition, we are in full swing with training and keeping the dogs in good physical condition to get ready for the upcoming show and competition season. Long walks in the snow and indoor trick training sessions to keep their minds active. Our show schedule is starting to fill up, with our first show at the Saugeen Bluffs Maple Syrup Festival on March 28 & 29th.

The R&R Pet Paradise Dog Demo team will be performing 2 action-packed shows at the Mount Forest Fireworks Festival on July 21, at 3:30 and 7:00 PM. Please check out http://www.mountforest.ca/fireworks/ for more details!
This month has been very busy for us, combining both fun events and some sad news...
June 7: We performed in front of hundreds and screaming kids and adults at the Harriston Public School *Summer Fling". What a great time that was, seeing many familiar faces and meeting many new ones.
June 9-10: We travelled to Tipp City, Ohio for an AWI Disc Competition where Rick qualified with Riff for the World Championships later this fall! Thanks to Virginia and Susan for looking after the kennel while we were away.
June 12: We were given some heart-breaking news that Rally (Canada's Got Talent fame) has a brain tumor. We are told that he will not be in any pain and we plan to enjoy every day with him as if it is his last. He will play for as long as he is able and will continue to be the main attraction of our shows with his charm and charisma. :-)
June 16-17: Angela and Brew travelled to Nova Scotia to teach a disc seminar to a group of keen students! Great time was had by all!
June 19: We performed for the residents at Birmimgham Retirement Home in Mount Forest. It was a very hot night, but everyone loved the show and the dogs enjoyed all the petting after the show. Later that week, we also were the main entertainment for the Solowave Summer BBQ!
June 23-24: We travelled to Fishers, Indiana for a disc competition at the Fishers Freedom Festival. Thanks to Shirley and Virginia for running the kennel while we were gone.
