Event Recap: Woofstock on May 24, 2014

Blue Dog Bakery attended Woofstock in Toronto, Ontario  on May 24, 2014. Here is what Brand Ambassador, Marina Sarovic , had to say about the day!

"The morning of Saturday May 24th was the beginning of a 2-day dog festival called "Woofstock." The event was held at the beautiful Woodbine Park in Toronto, Canada. By 10AM tents were set up all over the park, and dogs, with their respective dog owners, were beginning to fill up the grounds. The weather was perfect as our team of Brand Ambassadors started talking to people who came to visit the Blue Dog Bakery booth; whose yellow booth stood out amongst the sea of the plain white tents. Visitors were happily taking samples of Blue Dog Bakery's all natural, human-grade, fresh baked in the USA treats. Dog owners over the course of this weekend really displayed how much they cared for their pets; asking questions about ingredients, allergens, and even factory location.

A question that came up quite often was one in regards to the human-grade ingredients. Countless times we were asked whether we would eat them to which we replied "Of course" and took a bite! Some visitors immediately threw a treat in their mouths to try it after hearing that these treats are made on the same line as cookies for people. "If it is good enough for my dog, it is good enough for me!" joked one of the visitors. At one point there was a circle of five or six visitors and brand ambassadors all munching down on dog treats—could you imagine?? People who tried the treats noted that they are low in sugar and do not taste bad at all and definitely smell great compared to other dog foods that are on the market.

Amidst this very crowded weekend, we saw another crowd break out on Saturday. Olivia Chow, a currently running mayoral candidate for Toronto, came through to visit Woofstock and ended up coming by our booth. She was very busy answering questions regarding the election, but she told us how she loves dogs and had three throughout her life and some took pictures with us!

Other great moments we captured in pictures are puppies putting their paws up on the table to reach our samples! It was an amazing fun filled sunny weekend with lots of smiles and happy puppies!"
