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.

Things here at Dublin Dog Co., have been crazy these past 6 months. I apologize for not getting back on the bloggin' band-waggon. However, we have just over 10,000 pieces of our All Style, No Stink product arriving this week. That's right, fresh product, and better yet, we'll have everything in stock. Yippeee. We are very grateful for the HUGE demand we've received for our All Style, No Stink dog collars. We have made some dramatic changes in our production that will eliminate many of the issues we've faced with lack of inventory. Check out the blog for more and VERY EXCITING information about these said changes. You'll be luckier than ever in 2011.
We are thrilled and honored to have been included in the April edition of Backpacker Magazine's "Gear Guide". Dublin Dog Co is making a serious push in 2010 to go after more of a lifestyle market, for those folks who love the outdoors and enjoy making their dog(s) a part of that passion. And speaking of passion, we have been throwing our hearts and souls into new product development, new categories, and a fresh perspective on interacting with our customers. So thank you Backpacker Magazine www.backpacker.com, and thank you to our loyal customers who continue to give us wonderful and critical feedback. We are the LUCKY ONES!!!
The long awaited Winter Bliss Collar has finally arrived, and it's even cooler than we imagined. Why you ask? Because not only are these hand-filled collars beautifully crafted, but they offer new design elements that we are very proud of. First, each collar has an interior layer of reinforcement that runs the entire length of the collar from tip to tip, and around every hole. Secondly, you will find a new buckle that has rounded edges and a thicker, stronger, stainless steel center pin! Like old man Winter, these collars mean business. However, like the beauty of snow, these won't last forever. We've produced a limited supply for each color and size, and once they're gone, they're gone. We had 600 pre-orders before they ever hit the website. So act fast. On behalf of all of us at Dublin Dog Co., we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving week and we give thanks everyday for wonderful customers like you. Wishing you all the luck in the world...
