You might be asking, "How are dogs and wine even related?" Well a couple of our favorite local companies have come up with some really cool and innovated ways to pair the two.

This Friday, September 21st, Wag Hotel is holding their Wags and Wine event to support Grateful Dogs Rescue. Local to the Bay Area, Wag Hotel specializes in pet boarding, doggie daycare, grooming and pet day spa services. (They are also a proud sponsor of our Warm Bellies Initiative!) The event takes place on Wag Hotels' rooftop and is of course, doggy friendly! Sip on some yummy wine, mingle with other pups, listen to some great music, and know that you and your dog are supporting an awesome cause! Tickets are still available, you can purchase them here.

Wag Hotel also offers a wide variety of classes through their Wag University. From puppy basics to pet first aid and CPR, the training and knowledge they provide is invaluable.

P.L.A.Y. also recently partnered with Wine Barrel Concepts to create a series of customized beds that are specially outfitted for wine barrels. These aren’t just your ordinary wine barrels... they are wine barrels that double up as home furniture and pet bed casings. Just like P.L.A.Y. pet beds, each wine barrel is made from high quality materials that aren’t just good-looking, but built to last. They currently offer two P.L.A.Y. designs with more on the way! Check them out on Wine Barrel Concepts' page.

In addition to pet beds, they also make a wonderful assortment of other furniture and decorative pieces. We especially love the Wine Barrel Bookcase and kitchen Serving Platter.

We think it's awesome how both Wag Hotels and Wine Barrel Concepts have come up with such cool ways to pair two things that we love so much, our pups and wine!
