Dublin Dog Co has just released our newest member to the Original All Style, No Stink family, and she packs a punch, a Poinsettia Punch that is. Modeled after our best selling collection, the Daisy Daze, our Poinsettia Punch features our brand new E3 formulation (Extreme Element Elastomers) with a color palette that just looks festive. The white background looks like crisp white snow, while the poinsettias seem to float right off the collar with their dimensional design. Even though the design features Poinsettias, they're abstract enough to work for both male or female dogs. However, for those men who are a little scared of the flower power, Dublin Dog has released a brand new Simply Solid color way featuring traditional Red & Green, the hallmark color of the holidays. Whichever model you choose, any recipient will be overjoyed to be on your shopping list this season.

You’ve heard it a thousand times, that over time, owners and their dog(s) start to look alike. True? Who knows? What I do know is that dogs will start to match the energy level of their owners, be that for good or bad. So if you live a sedentary lifestyle, then over time your dog too will learn to adapt to that lifestyle, as will their metabolism. With that comes an expanding waistline and a whole host of related issues.
The solution: Get Active! Not all of us are in the best shape of our lives, however there are tons of ways to get back into it, especially now that the weather is finally getting cooler in some parts of the US. Here are a few quick ideas to step it up in the energy department.
- Human’s best friend- the dog; A Dog’s best friend- the walk. That’s right, one of the best things you can offer your dog is a brisk 20-30 minute walk. Not only do you get exercise during the walk, but you establish pack rules and obedience training opportunities while your buddy’s behind (not in front of you pulling) the leash. Use that time to reconnect with your dog and to use stop signs, other dogs, and all things furry that scurry out in front of you as training opportunities.
- Get involved in various types of obedience & agility trials. There are so many wonderful groups that can be found on sites like Meetup or local blogs that can direct you to well established groups. This week alone I have heard of two great classes, one was on agility and the other was an urban scent class. How much fun would that be! One class even had a “bring me a beer” retrieval command. I saw it first hand and was so envious!
- Finally try something brand new. You don’t have to walk laps around your neighborhood, those sights and sounds can get old after awhile. Go for a hike at a new park, make a go of Dock Diving, or take your dog geocaching for the first time. Keep it fun & fresh and the experience will be great for both of you. Just remember, if your heading to the water, just grab your Original All Style, No Stink collar to stay as fresh as your new found spirit for exercise.
The long wait is now over! After 4 years of watching the original all style, no stink collar grow, both in popularity and in pure scope we have learned a lot. We are grateful to our customers and critics alike, who remind us that we too can't rely on luck alone to make our products better. Every version of the original All Style, No Stink dog collar has taught us invaluable lessons about what makes a product more than just a commodity. It has to do with safety, reliability, design, and an unspoken agreement of trust with the company behind the product. So with that, we feel we have answered the most pressing desires of our customers and of our own goals for the collar. Featuring completely new hardware, new tooling, new materials including our extreme element elastomers (E3) that has made our collars, softer, stronger, and lighter than ever before; and did I mention made in the USA? So thank you for your patience and we hope that you agree with us, that the wait was well worth it.
You’re at the park, enjoying the sunny afternoon and your four-legged friend is having the time of her life. Then, as if being pulled by some invisible lasso, she makes a b-line to that dark area in the grass over by the tree. Suddenly, she stops, drops and rolls as if trying to put out a small fire set by worker ants (it must be a big fire, cause there's a lot of rollin' taking place). Then just as unexpectedly she trots over to you as if looking for a merit badge for her accomplishment. Then it hits you, like an uppercut to the nose. “The Funk”.
So why do dogs roll in the nasty nectar of dead things, poop, and all things gross? Here’s three explanations:
1)Dog’s use the scent or odor of what we would otherwise find disgusting as a type of perfume for themselves. Many times, we clean our dogs with perfumed soaps and sprays, however that can smell horrible to them. In return, they shop down a slightly different aisle and go for the scent that is most pleasing to them, like the nasty tidbits left laying in the field.
2)The dominant theory is that this is a trait carried over from their wolf ancestry, whereby canines would use these scents to cover up, or disguise their own scent as a way to sneak up on their prey. In some cases, they could almost be invited by their prey to come closer if they chose the most appealing scent.
3)Getting covered and smothered in nasty goodness can also be a way of alerting their pack or pack leader “hey look what I found over here, take a whiff”. It’s a way to communicate that they’ve found the booty, and you’re missing out. No really, you are.
It’s for this reason I created the Original All Style, No Stink dog collar for Dublin Dog Co.. Dogs will be dogs, and that’s why we love them, for all their quarks, traits, and characteristics. But leave the funk in the field and keep your collars clean. Did you know you can put your waterproof ASNS Dublin Dog Collar in the dishwasher? Try it.
