Puppdate #3 - Pooches, Porridge, and Pride

Posted on July 02, 2016 by Paul Froggatt | 0 comments

(Miss the last Puppdate? You can find all entries here.)

June may go down in history as the month Ireland spent discussing what the hell British people were thinking, but at Pupp it was all about Pride. The city celebrated in extraordinary fashion, culminating in the biggest ever Pride parade on the 25th.

We also spent time fielding questions from the press, with our pay-what-you-can porridge making headlines following our "How much do people spend" blog postLovin Dublin, The Daily Edge, Dublin Live, and even The Irish Times offered their thoughts on the concept - It has been great to see people embracing it so generously, and we'll be exploring other models going forward as well.

What's been happening?
Pupp pride logo June was Pride month, and Pupp celebrated in style. With specially made dog bandanasmulti-coloured pancakes, and a Pride feast for those attending the parade, we even got a mention on RTE Radio 1 as the city lit up in the rainbow flag.
Little hound dog bandanas We've been expanding the Pupp Store and are delighted to introduce Little Hound Dog Bandanas. The handmade accessories have been an instant hit, and there will be more neckerchiefs from a range of Irish designers coming to our dog bandanas page soon!
Pupp cake Our homemade cakes have always been popular, and Marita has been slaving away on an even greater selection of delicious treats. Pop in for a freshly baked delight like this gluten-free oreo cake with buttercream and edible flowers.
Pupp draft logo On the Pupp Blog we continued our series of behind-the-scenes posts with an in-depth look at branding a small business, including choosing a name and designing a logo. If you're curious about a particular aspect of running a dog-friendly cafe just let us know!

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
