We hope that your weekend was as wonderful as ours and that you’re feeling rested and ready to face the week!
As usual things have been jam-packed on our end. We started off last week by spending our Sunday in Mississauga with an amazing group of students who are part of Ontario DECA. DECA is an organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe. We had the honour of being invited to present our business to a group of students preparing for the DECA International Career Development Conference (ICDC) in Atlanta, GA this coming May. We reviewed Bowzer Box pretty thoroughly and answered some questions from the students who then broke into groups, prepared, and presented us with 2-3 marketing activities to help promote and expand our business across the country. We were absolutely floored by the positive responses and by the professionalism and dedication with which all of the students approached this task. Having some fresh eyes on our business was great and the ideas that were presented to us were exceptional; if our time with them was any indication of what these students are capable of, we think that they are going to clean up at their International conference!
This was our first speaking engagement since our launch and we had a blast (pardon the pun). So thank you to the Ontario DECA chapter and best of luck at ICDC! If you’d like to find out more about DECA and how to get involved, head over to http://2013.deca.ca
We are lucky enough to have a couple more engagements coming our way this month. While we aren’t able to make it out in person, National Service Dogs has invited us to be part of their Annual Easter Egg Hunt for Dogs taking place April 18, 2014 (http://www.nsd.on.ca/events/easter-egg-hunt-for-dogs/). This is an amazing event for the whole family with hunts held across the country. Check out the link above for more information and if you are headed out hunting keep your eyes peeled for some Bowzer treats!
The reason we can’t make it to the Easter Egg Hunt is the All About Pets Show. Unfortunately there just aren’t enough of us on the Bowzer team yet to make it to more than one event at a time. While we hate missing out on a good egg hunt, we are pretty excited to meet all you pet lovers out there! We will be set up at the show, offering information about our subscriptions as well as giving you an opportunity to purchase your very own Bowzer Box to take home and share with your pup right away. Also look for Bowzer’s Doberman friend Turkey to make an appearance at the AAPS. We made the mistake of telling him about it a bit early and now we can’t stop him from trying to jump in the car!
Amidst all this event planning we were able to get everything packed up and we sent our our April boxes today- a day early! We are so excited for the puptastic Spring time treats that are coming your way. We can’t spoil the surprise, but if you haven’t subscribed yet, or if you are new and didn’t get our March box you can get an idea of what sort of product comes in our box from this review posted by one of our amazing pupscribers.
We love hearing from our pupscribers and we have a feeling that with Easter happening this month there are going to be some pretty cute little dog-bunnies out there, and we want to see them. Start capitalizing on all that social media and send us pics of your pup(s) enjoying the Spring sunshine, and their new Bowzer Box of course!
Now, as a little throwback in honour of National Siblings Day having just passed, here are some of our four-legged family members getting cozy. Go hug your loved ones and have a great week!
