Why We Travel
Fireside Hound has a passion for working with small business and local rescue efforts. We believe community matters, and that investing in each other is the best way for everyone to succeed. But we didn’t want to just contribute to our local community, we wanted to encourage and support pet communities across the country.
In every city, there are privately owned pet stores, mom and pop dog bakeries, and local rescue organizations that run on love instead of profits. That’s who we want to connect with. When we travel to a city for a trade show, we like to come a few days before and stay a few days after so we can stop by these places. Our four-legged staff loves to sample their products and meet new friends. We love to meet the owners, get the scoop on the best dog parks, visit the shelters and learn a little about the city’s dog culture.
