Submit your pictures for the Howl-O-Ween Photo Contest!

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

It’s time to get your camera’s ready and dress-up your pooch for our Annual Howl-O-Ween Photo Contest!

Last year’s national contest was quite competitive, featuring doggy versions of The Grinch (our Grand Champion), Mother Goose, Hugh Hefner and his bunny and Shrek! We really enjoyed all of the entries and were very impressed at the creativity. We can’t wait to see your photos this year!

Photos of your costumed pet should be emailed to or dropped off at the front desk no later than Thursday, Oct 22nd.

This year voting will take place right here on the blog beginning Friday, Oct 23rd. You’ll be able to vote via the comments section (one vote per user) and easily pass it along to family, friends, co-workers – anyone you can think of – to rustle up some votes for your pup!

The Dogtopia family has grown to twenty stores in 2009! The winner from each store will go on to compete in the national contest for the title of Grand Howl-O-Ween Champion, a spot of honor on the front page of the website and a 5-Day Daycare Pass.

Good Luck!

Remember: Costumes, while fun, can also be dangerous. Make sure your dog cannot get tangled, choked or otherwise injured in his or her Halloween costume. Never leave your pet unsupervised while in costume.

Why we love… Emma & Bruno!

Friday, February 20th, 2009


Emma and Bruno are siblings that visit Dogtopia of Tysons Corner on a regular basis.

Emma is a sweet Yellow Lab who will be 5 this April and she’s been prancing into our lobby for years now. Since she was a cute, cute puppy!

Bruno will be 2 in April and he was actually adopted right from Dogtopia! An employee was caring for him temporarily and his mom just fell in love with the cute fluff ball behind the counter. It was meant to be! We think he’s one lucky pup!

We love these two because they are such active supporters of ours! Not only do they attend daycare for a good time, but we also see them out and about at events regularly! I specifically love seeing them at the Super Pet Expo each year! They even make an effort to support our own events… as the pictures from our Luau (early Dogtopia days) and last year’s Halloween Contest Party show.

How cute is Bruno as a little pig??
