Brenner posing with one of my art prints! Posted with permission by @bigfriendlyginger Purchase here. Hello! Happy Thursday! I am sorry there wasn’t a blog last week. Family was in town, and of course, time got away from me. But, I’ve had some great projects in the works, including this awesome interview with “A Big Friendly Ginger” (@bigfriendlyginger), an adorable instagram account featuring Brenner, an adorable golden retriever, If you haven’t seen their account, please check it out! I asked Mariah, Brenner’s dog mom, a bunch of questions, including how she came up with the name “A Big Friendly Ginger”, how she gets Brenner to pose for all those adorable photos, and so much more! I hope you enjoy! Tell us about yourself. I’m Mariah, Brenner’s mom, and the “bfg” is Brenner. We are currently residing in Gainesville, Florida. I moonlight as Becky on the gram (I don’t know how…

When you get a dog, no matter if it’s a puppy or a senior, training is so important. Dogs need to have boundaries, which sets them (and you) up for a fun, successful and happy life. One of the first things we did when we brought Gant home was enroll him in a puppy training class. For six weeks, I went from not knowing how to teach him to sit to seeing him be the first dog to pass the whole course. So today, I am introducing Paw and Order Dog Training and Behaviour Consulting, a company based in Canada. Nicole, the founder, will give us some background on her business, as well as tips and tricks for effectively training your dog. Tell us a little About Yourself. My name is Nicole Courson, CDBC, KPA-CTP. I live in Nelson, British Columbia (Canada) and I train in Nelson and the surrounding…

As a small business owner, one of my favorite things is collaborating with like-minded business owners who have the same passion and drive to make their dreams a reality. We learn so much from each other – our ups, downs, inspirations, and what keeps us going, because being an Entreprenuer is REALLY hard. This week, I am proud to partner with Melissa Portell of Letters by Angelie, a dog-loving business inspired by her late Boston Terrier, Angely.  She creates water color and acrylic pet portraits, as well as stickers, prints, t-shirts and pins. Read her story below, and then keep scrolling for an awesome giveaway! “Letters by Angelie sounds like a simple title, but it has a deeper meaning for me. My dog passed away on October 2, 2017. She was a fourteen year old Boston Terrier. I used to call her “my sweet partner”. I got her when I…

One of the most important things a small business owner needs, especially one that has to do a lot of designing, printing, assembling, mailing, is an office. It needs to be functional so you can stay organized and easily get anything you need within reach. That’s why when we first moved into our home, it was one of the first things I started designing. In my old office, it was way too small, and had no place for all of my supplies. The tiny closet held all my clothes, as the bedroom could only fit my husband’s wardrobe. All of my shipping materials were stored in the basement, so I would have to schlep down there everytime I shipped an order. During the busy seasons, I brought up a bunch of materials so I could easily have them on hand. However, they just sat there, leaning against my desk. I…
