Understanding and promoting your competitive advantages can help you stand out in the market place.

fido fido, a boutique hotel and daycare for dogs that provides a safe, fun and thoughtfully-designed “home away from home” in Sandy Springs, Georgia, certainly understands that fact. That’s why they turned to us for help in identifying objective, quantifiable and sustainable points of difference.

After conducting client interviews and research, our findings included:

Coyotes in Sandy Springs

 SANDY SPRINGS TO HOST COMMUNITY INFORMATION MEETING ON THE TOPIC OF COYOTES

The City of Sandy Springs will host a public Open House to address recent coyote sightings in Sandy Springs. Representatives from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources will be present to explain coyote behavior, biology, habitat, management options, and safety precautions.

WHEN: Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2013

TIME: 6:30 p.m.

WHERE: Sandy Springs City Hall Council Chambers, 7840 Roswell Road, Building 500, Sandy Springs

Safety Tips from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources:

  •  
    Bring pets indoors at night, as this is the coyote’s primary hunting time.
  • If a pet must be kept outside, install fencing and motion-activated floodlights to discourage predators.
  • Clean and store grills when not in use. Keep pet food indoors, or feed your pet indoors, and refill bird feeders in small amounts.

Save Lives, Spay & Neuter

600 Fido’s Will Die

 I am proud to say that many of our guests at fido fido, as well as my personal dogs are “rescue dogs.” I can’t imagine not having these dogs in my life. Our dogs were fortunate to have caring and conscientious people like yourself make them a part of your family and for that I say, “thank you.” However, you are still needed. For every 1 dog that is rescued, 600 will die. Over 5 million animals are euthanized at shelters yearly in the U.S., and only 1 out of every 10 dogs ever finds a permanent home. This is not acceptable. The problem is daunting, but together we can make a difference. That is why fido fido Dog Daycare and Boarding is teaming up with Dog Corps as one of its first corporate partners to get to the root of the problem—reducing overpopulation through spaying and neutering. Dog Corps and the Georgia SPCA will hold their first FREE spay and neuter clinic for low income families around the Atlanta area on November 2nd at 1175 Hwy 23, Suite 109, Suwanee, Georgia. You can make a difference by donating supplies, money or volunteering. During the month of November, fido fido will match financial donations up to $400 to help Dog Corps continue to carry out its very important mission. Be sure to mention you’re a part of the fido fido family when you donate so we can be sure to match it up! To donate go to http://www.gofundme.com/atlspayandneuter or for more information about Dog Corps go to www.dogcorps.org.

 

Unleash Your Generosity!

Halloween Safety For Your Pets

Halloween is a fun day for humans, but it can present some safety issues for your pet. Thinking ahead can help ensure that you and your pet have a great holiday.

 Take a cue from your pet. Not every pet enjoys or tolerates clothing or costumes. If your pet appears alarmed by the costume, it may be a good idea to skip it. If you still want involve your pet in holiday fun, try a festive Halloween bandana or a pawdicure for your dog by a pet professional using Halloween colors.

 Do not leave your pet unattended in a costume. He may tear it up and ingest the materials causing bowel obstruction or poisoning in the case of metal fasteners made of zinc or lead.

 Constant doorbell ringing, loud noises and people in costume may frighten your pet and cause stress related bowel issues. Keep your pet in a safe, quiet place during this time. Also, never leave pets outdoors unattended during Halloween season. Cases of animal cruelty—especially related to black cats goes up during this time according to Humane Societies.

 Keep candy and wrappers away from Fido. Candy wrappers, sticks from lollipops and other plastics components found in some candies can cause obstruction or puncture the intestines. Excessive candy and dark chocolate can cause poisoning or pancreatitis.  Gum or other candy containing the artificial sweetener xylitol can quickly cause liver failure in dogs. Raisinsand grapes are very poisonous and can cause kidney failure in dogs and potentially cats.

 Wagging tails around Jack O’Lantern flames and candles can be dangerous. Keep your pet away from open flames.

 By following these few, simple tips—you and your pet are sure to have a fun and festive time.

 fido fido is offering a Halloween Special October 31-Nov 3.  Purchase one Explorer’s Nature Walk and get one Free walk during your dog’s boarding stay.
