Petiquette for Non-Pet Owners: Going to Events



Petiquette for Non-Pet Owners Series. Article 2.


This series is a guide for non-pet owners. Proper Petiquette should apply not only to those with pet but also to those without pets who come into contact with pets.

It is lovely to walk in the mall or the park and see a pet event. A lot of beautiful pets are out on display. You can interact with pets and pet parents. You can take pictures too. Be warned. Even if you are not a pet parent, you still have to follow some Petiquette for a meaningful experience.

Dos

  • ·         Talk to pet owners first before petting the pets.
  • ·         Smile at everyone. Start your conversation with a smile, a greeting then a compliment. It works wonders!
  • ·         When a dog is blocking you way, do ask the owner nicely to move their dog.


Don’ts

  • ·         Just take close up picture of pets without asking.
  • ·         Use flash in taking pictures. Pet’s might get blind or they might get stressed.
  • ·         Just offer food to any pet. They might not take to it or you might ruin their diet. Ask first.

These three dos and don’ts are so easy to follow in any scenario.

DDLC's Pawsion Sunday

Here is the short write up written by Mr. Jake Tadla of DDLC about the Pawsion Event that took place in SM Lanang Davao City. 

We Filipinos, being traditional and family-oriented as we are, save up Sundays to spend quality time with our dear ones. Last 14th of September 2014 was no different. However, it was a significant day laid out for our furry loved ones and their human parents to dress up and impress the eager crowd by gracing the catwalk.
The Davao Dog Lovers Community (DDLC), in cooperation with Mini Air Dog Cafè, Philippine Siberian Husky Club Inc. Davao Pack, Red ROCK Designs and Prints, with the outstanding help of Pongee Party Shop, The Mindanao Daily Mirror, Davao Kendo Club, Baby Moon Pawprints, and Jade's Cargo, and through the accommodating grounds of SM Lanang Premier, we were able to showcase the unconditional and exemplary friendship of man and dog through a one of a kind fashion show and theme-based photo contest.
Twenty-seven (27) human-dog teams proudly participated in the fashion show and sixteen (16) photographs were hung on the board at the SM Fountain Court for everyone to appreciate. Aside from the Pawsion participants, event goers together with their furkids dressed up in accordance to the fun height of the show and were recognized during thw program as our audience pawsionistas. Chelo Femiz & Sparkle (1st - fashion show), Carlito Laurel & Missue (2nd - fashion show), Eugene Maning & Pewee (3rd -fashion show), Joy Raphanan & Dexter (1st - audience pawsionista), Gianne Tuazon & Wicca (2nd - audience pawsionista), and Alan Lee Lopez & Peanut (3rd - audience pawsionista) bagged the respective recognition at the end of the event. All fashion show and audience pawsionista winners received specially handcrafted hats from Baby Moon Pawprints. Through the in betweens of the programme, trivia winners also received dog fashion clothes from Paws Avenue.
Everybody also witnessed and was awe-inspired by the dog wedding of Agong of Mini Air Dog Cafè and Dobbie (friend of the cafè owner) stated their vows and marked the start of their dog days as mates.
Occasions like this envision to strengthen the unconditional bond between man and dog. This event was also a venue for the four-pawed creatures and their parents to socialize and share their stories with their fellow, as well as learn to make their relationship better through every joyous day, may it be warm or cold.
Special and utmost gratitude to those who helped in making our furkids' fab up experience an absolute blast. That day is already a memory well-kept for the jovial disposal of the future.

Petiquette for Non-Pet Owners: Parties



Pettiquette for Non-Pet Owners Series. Article 1. 

This series is a guide for non-pet owners. Proper Petiquette should apply not only to those with pet but also to those without pets who come into contact with pets.

Pet parties are all the rage nowadays. You might just get invited to one. If you are uncomfortable attending a party with animals, say so. When they ask to RSVP, respond please. Pet parents giving a pet party is a way for them to celebrate their time and love for their pets. It’s just proper etiquette to accept or decline with grace. 

If you accept, they will be expecting you. Food is usually counted because they have to prepare for two sets, one for humans and another for pets. Some even prepare for three sets, adults, children and pets. If you are bringing others with you, tell your host.

Since it is a pet party, ask for the theme. Dress accordingly and bring a gift. For pets celebrating their first year of age, you usually give useful things like teething toys, plushies, blankets and training tools. For older pets, it’s nice to give chewable rawhides, rope toys and the like. Don’t give garment unless you know the size and preference of the pet. In giving treats, if you don’t know the dietary restrictions, better to stick to toys. If you are close to the owners and know that they don’t mind, gift them with used towels. They could use it under the pet bed or convert it into toys or rug. Things to also consider giving are fruits and veggies. Apples and carrots are the safest. Arrange them in a basket or wrapped well in ribbons. Safest things for gifts are colorful leash, pet toys, blankets, and gift certificates. Price is not an issue when giving. You must not equate cash value to what you expect the party to be. The fact that you are invited means your host thought about you. Giving a gift is just a way of saying thank you.

Upon leaving the party, thank your host and with their pets well. Enjoyed yourself or not, it is good manners to say thank you for thinking about them and taking time to invite them. If you noticed you are one of the last ones to leave, offer to help clean up. Even if it’s just picking up paper hats, bottles and putting away dishes.
