🦃 This Thanksgiving, give your pup a mini feast of their own with boneless, skinless turkey, plain or sweet unseasoned potatoes, seedless apple slices, plain pumpkin, carrots, and green beans. Please avoid serving food such as stuffing, mashed potatoes with dairy and seasonings, onions, scallions, raisins, and especially chocolate. Let’s save these for the humans to enjoy so our dogs stay healthy this Thanksgiving!

Fish can be a yummy (and healthy) addition to your dog's diet. 🐟 It’s full of easy-to-digest protein and includes minerals such as zinc, calcium, magnesium and iron! It’s also anti-inflammatory, which can benefit pups with joint ailments and inflammatory bowel disease.

To avoid high levels of toxic mercury, choose fish with a shorter life span (like salmon, anchovies and flounder), over types that have a higher chance of mercury accumulation (like tuna, seabass and mackerel). As a reminder, please remove all bones before serving to your dog to avoid choking hazards!

We are so grateful to Painting with a Twist for hosting Paint Your Pet events throughout the month of September benefiting the Dogtopia Foundation.

We want to thank Painting with a Twist for their partnership and donation which allows the Dogtopia Foundation to continue to enable dogs to positively change our world.

Drop a 🙋 in the comments if you’re planning on dressing up your pup for Halloween!

When dressing up your pup, remember:
🎃 Don’t leave your dog unattended in a Halloween costume
🎃 Select a costume that does NOT restrict movement, airways, or sight
🎃 Ensure your dog's tags can still be seen regardless of Halloween costume
🎃 Try on your pup's Halloween costume ahead of the big night
🎃 Your dog should be comfortable. If they look upset or uncomfortable in their costume, it is best to remove it.

Massages are relaxing for humans and pups alike! Give your pup a massage before and after playtime to increase their circulation, loosen their muscles, and prevent injury. Massaging their head, back, tail, belly, or paws can also lower anxiety and assist with any developing arthritis.

Remember to not apply excessive pressure and pay attention to any areas of soreness on your dog. Stop immediately if they seem uncomfortable.

Dogtopia Dogs Maintaining Healthy Habits | Pet Obesity Awareness Day - Dogtopia

Today is – did you know that more than 50% of dogs are considered obese? This day is a reminder that our furry family member’s health is just as important as our own. Dogtopia’s focus is on the health and wellness of all dogs in our care, and we're out to change that statistic! The average Dogtopia dog gets more than 30,000 steps while at daycare and a dog that spends the day at home gets less than 7,000. Without a regular exercise routine, dogs can experience a variety of health-related issues. This Pet Obesity Awareness Day, learn more about how Dogtopia keeps your dog’s wellness top of mind so they can lead a healthy, happy and fulfilled life:

In 2022, Pet Obesity Awareness Day lands on Wednesday, October 12th. According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, more than 50% of all dogs can be classified as obese, and Dogtopia is out to change that statistic. Dogtopia’s focus is on the health, wellness, and happiness of all dogs. ...

Is apple picking one of your fall favorites?! 🍎 Be sure to share some delicious and nutritious apple slices with your pup. Apples are packed with vitamins C and A, potassium, and are high in fiber, which is great for digestion.

We recommend giving them only a couple of slices and removing the seeds but keeping the peel on – it’s highly nutritious. 😋

Our Story

By the time you get home from your busy day, your dog is a ball of energy! They've spent all day waiting for you to come home. Meanwhile, you need to make dinner, help your kids with homework, and even fit in some time to relax after a long day.

Dog daycare is the answer! Drop your dog off at Dogtopia and let them spend the day socializing with other dogs, interacting with our professionally-trained team, exercising and burning off plenty of pent-up energy. At the end of the day, you'll pick up a happy (and tired) pooch.

We also offer dog boarding for overnight or extended stays, as well as doggie spa services.

Move much? A passed daycare and boarding evaluation is valid at every single Dogtopia location nationwide.

When was your pup's last check-up? As summer begins to wrap up, it is a great time to schedule a visit with your vet before the busy fall season!

Dogs under seven typically require a regular checkup once a year, but older dogs can benefit from visiting twice a year. Regular vet visits are critical for the health and longevity of dogs.
