Let’s face it, some people are addicted to their pup. They carry them around in their purses, bring them to work, sleep with them, and sometimes even bathe with them. Whether an addict or not, having a dog is a full-time job which can sometimes deter people from leaving the house. Well the Valley has a few ways to get out and have fun with your little sidekick. Here’s how…

It’s been a rough week for Spike, what with all the post-work dog walks, so let him enjoy a little TLC and some social interaction at Yappy Hour at Just Dogs Gourmet! This fun-filled doggie social-hour runs every Thursday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. and not only gives Spike a chance to mingle with fellow doggies, but he is also given yummy treats like bacon pups, raspberry truffles and peanut butter cups.
