Get Walking This January For A Free Coffee

Posted on January 05, 2017 by Ella Wallace | 0 comments

January is a great time for new beginnings, resolutions and all round good intentions. To celebrate January, (yes you heard us right, celebrate!) we have come up with a little incentive to help dust off those walking boots and bust any back-to-work-blues.

Instead of driving to Pupp, try one of the below walking routes - enjoy a lovely scenic stroll through some of Dublin's most beautiful areas, and get a free coffee as a little reward! Simply post a photo or two of your walk to Facebook, and tag Pupp in the post.

New Year Resolutions

We've handpicked the routes to highlight some of the great attractions Dublin has to offer. Give it a go, it's healthy and it's free (ticking the box for two resolutions at once!), and you can bring your pooch!

I Want To Earn It (6km+)

Phoenix Loop (4km to Pupp, 4.2km return)

Park up at Phoenix Park Lord's Walk, then walk through the park towards the Liffey. When you get to the river take a stroll down the quays, maybe even take a snap on one of the historic bridges. Head down Francis Street until you get to St Patrick's Cathedral, then just short stretch of Clanbrassil St until you reach Pupp! For the way back, why not try the back roads to the Liberty Church, then up by The Guiness Storehouse and the Parish of Saint James. Head back over the Liffey and up through Phoenix Park to Lord's Walk again!

Sizing Guide

Dogs come in all shapes and sizes, and we want whatever you buy to be comfortable and well fitted for your pooch. Sizing can often be confusing, with manufacturers using different standards and metrics. At Pupp we list all our sizes in cm's so you can find the perfect fit.

How to measure your dog:

Collars

Neck: Measure right around the neck, allowing enough room to slide 2 fingers in for comfort

Harnesses

Chest: Measure right around the body around the deepest part of your dog's chest, usually just behind the dog's front legs.

Neck: Measure right around the neck, allowing enough room to slide 2 fingers in for comfort
