Hey Ho Kids of all ages!

It’s that time again – yes, this week! Kids are heading back to school on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday for their first school days this year. We know that it means we start new routines as families and unfortunately much of the time that means us dogs and cats are just a little lonely because we’re used to having our little people around more than they are going to be.

Abby and I (okay, well I) think it’s a great time since kids are heading back for greater education to get back to school with us pets as well! We’d love to learn some new tricks, or walk a little better on leash, or maybe – gasp – walk off leash without incident!

Any way you look at it, spending some time teaching us some things will benefit both of us – we’re better behaved and more relaxed because you’re spending quality time with us, and you; you get the benefit of a better trained pet – your friends will be so jealous!

While you’re pondering these deep thoughts take a minute and download our latest coloring contest and remember entries have to land either physically at one of our stores or via email to coloringcontest@bendpetexpress.com , or post it to our Instagram page with the hashtag #ColorwithBPE by the last day of the month.  Our esteemed staff will choose the top two, and then the winner will be chosen by social media votes and the winner announced from there.

Let the games begin! Have a great first week of school everyone
