For this week’s weekly review Rocco’s Pack is at the Waterways Dog Park. Beautifully maintained by the city of Aventura, this dog park definitely gets two “paws up” from Rocco’s Pack. There’s a lovely walking path around the perimeter of the park, so you can go there and actually get some exercise too. There’s tons of shaded areas, benches and picnic tables with the center of the park being under a big canopy. There’s two water stations for the pooches and a hose, so if the doggies get too hot, you can hose them off. The people are friendly and attentive to their dogs. The best thing about this park, unlike other nearby dog parks is that the city does a great job with maintenance. So there’s no muddy areas and it’s regularly re-sodded whenever it’s needed. Also various times during the day you’ll find park staff around willing to help or answer any questions you may have. Kudos to the city of Aventura!!

Rocco’s Pack Pet Services is kicking off National Professional Pet Sitters Week by offering a free doggie field trip or a free 15 minute walk if you join the “pack” in the month of March. We have field trips scheduled throughout the month to lots of fun doggie locations throughout North Dade and Broward. If your doggy is stuck at home while you’re busy at work or taking care of the kids, the groceries, etc…let your pooch come out and play with Rocco’s Pack! We are friendly and lots of fun to hang out with. Best of all, when your dog is part of Rocco’s Pack, he’s a member of our family. We are insured, bonded and we take every care to ensure that your dog is safe at all times. You should know that exercise and daily activity is one of the most important and necessary components for a dog’s healthy and happy life. Socialization is also vital, so if your dog hasn’t been getting out and making friends, it’s time to join the “pack”. It’s so much more fun that sitting at home chewing the furniture. Call us now and we’ll get you and your furry friend on your way to tons of fun in the sun and maybe a new found life of dog fun, events, socialization and lots of exercise. Find us on twitter @roccospack and on Facebook: facebook.com/roccospack or just call us: 786-309-5109. See ya at the dog park!

We are excited to announce our affiliation with the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS). NAPPS is a non-profit organization founded in 1989 by a group of pet sitters and to this day continues to be operated by its members, for its members. NAPPS is dedicated to promoting the welfare of animals and serves as a wonderful resource to the pet owning public and professionals in the pet care industry. Its vision statement, “to serve as the most respected authority in professional pet sitting” is fulfilled not only by providing countless resources to support the success of their members, but also pet parents are afforded the opportunity to take advantage of resources such as disaster preparedness guides, tips on how to select a pet sitter, a nationwide referral service and quarterly teleconferences aimed at educating the pet owning public. Best of all, these benefits are free to pet parents. And if that isn’t enough, NAPPS is rated high on the social responsibility scale as well. Two of their major annual events are the “Presents 4 Pets” program which consists of a collection drive held during National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week and the Youth Education Program aimed at educating children and adolescents on proper and responsible pet care and parenting. Visit NAPPS at www.petsitters.org, join them on Facebook at facebook.com/TheNAPPS or follow @TheNAPPS on Twitter.
Backed by such a wonderful organization, the next time you turn to us for your pet care needs, you can rest assured that ensuring the welfare of your pet is above all else.
