This year we finally went to our first Woofstock and it was held at Woodbine Park, just down the street from our house. I was really happy with the location, because it was close proximity to the beach so we could take Finn for a swim afterward. Jason, Finn and I went with Kristin & Gideon and Kyle & Adam met up with us. There was a ton of people and dogs and the vendors were pretty varied and interesting. Finn loves going out to events so Woofstock was a real treat for him.
This was the best picture of the day – Jason & Gideon hanging out in front of the Bowzer Box tent.
The highlight of the festival for us was meeting the people at Bowzer Box. I really loved the concept of “Bark Box” but it’s out of the US and I was looking for a Canadian company to support. Finn LOVES treats and he goes through a toy every couple of weeks, so having a monthly delivery of new things to try out is a really great idea.

Bowzer box gave us our first box free at Woofstock and Finn was really excited to open it.
We are going to sign up for a trial subscription and review it here so you can see what we get.
This gummy bear toy was a real hit with Finn. It’s a strong as a Kong so he can’t rip it apart, he can chew it like one of his ChuckIt balls and it squeaks. His favourite thing is to chew on a squeaky toy. For an hour.
UPDATE: I forgot to mention that you guys should check out Head-Lites LED Dog Collars. We were really interested in one for Finn. We were set to buy one, but they were honest and told us that the collars are water resistant but not waterproof enough to be submerged for a swim. Then they sent us in the direction of a competitor they thought would have what we were looking for. So worth a mention for good karma all around and they’re a Canadian company.
