One year. 50 dogventures. 40,000 visitors. And a whole lot of love.
When I started this blog one year ago, I set a goal: one post a week for 52 weeks. I am proud to say that we made it through the first year, and I continue to be just as excited about Halifax Dogventures as I was 52 weeks ago. I don’t know what lies ahead, but I do know that I have become grateful for this creative outlet that allows me to do something completely different from my “day job”. It has pushed me to explore incredible new places in this wonderful city called Halifax, and beyond. It has encouraged me to reflect on the joys (and the occasional struggles) of dog ownership. It has inspired conversations about topics like responsible dog ownership, and why we should foster and cherish the human-animal bond.
And, of course, I am grateful for all of you, without whom this blog would not be possible. I am thankful for every like, share, comment and page view. I hope you’ve enjoyed this journey, and maybe even discovered a new favourite place to go dogventuring.
So, in celebration of my one-year blogiversary, and as a thank-you, I’m doing a giveaway! Back in February, I posted a recipe for Homemade Paw Balm. This was the beginning of the Dog DIY mini-series. Since then, I have added three more tutorials – a Super Simple DIY Dog Blanket, a DIY Dock and Boat Ramp for Dogs, and a DIY Adjustable Dog Collar.
I’ve bundled three out of these four homemade items to create this pawesome Halifax Dogventures Gift Bundle.
The winner will receive…
1. A super cozy (and reversible!) fleece dog blanket.
2. An adjustable dog collar in an adorable anchor print from Dear Stella Design’s Into the Reef collection (the winner can choose from three different sizes).
3. A jar of all natural homemade paw balm to protect your pup’s precious paws from the harsh elements.
… And just in case you don’t win and you’d really like to get your paws on one of those dog collars, be sure to come visit the ElderDog table at the Alderney Christkindlmarket (Christmas Market) on Saturday, December 3rd from 2pm to 9pm. We will be selling collars in a bunch of different prints. They will be available in three sizes.
In addition to collars, we will also be selling the 2017 ElderDog calendars (with new photos from photographer Robert MacLellan’s Dignity Project), and other great items. 100% of the proceeds will go towards supporting ElderDog’s two- and four-legged seniors.
But you’re probably going to win the Gift Bundle. To enter, follow the link below. The contest closes at 11:59pm on Thursday, November 17th, and I’ll announce the winner on Fetch Friday (November 18th). Good luck!
Please note: The contest is open to Canadian residents only.

Me and my three legged girl use Long Lake as our go to!
Thanks for the chance 🙂
Just discovering this blog now! I love to dogventure with my pups on the beach at Hartlen Point!
LOVE the anchor collar. I feel like we have very similar tastes – i also have a black lab, and love DIY-ing for her 🙂
Sorry it isn’t available to Vermont residents (USA) I wish I were Canadian though I don’t think I’d qualify because I wouldn’t pass the ‘niceness’ test. Every time I’ve visited your country everyone I’ve ever spoken with is just so darn ‘nice’. I’ve had the pleasure of having a few Canadian physicians here and just love them also. We just purchased our first little camper and I am just starting to plan our first big adventure…where to…New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and PEI. I cannot wait to get back to a normal country! We’ll be heading up in mid June 2017.
What a great way to celebrate your blogiversary! We love Halifax Dogventures! I’ve entered the draw…for a golden doodle friend. 🙄
This is an awesome giveaway! Have really enjoyed learning from your adventures – our favourite place is Bayswater Beach or the Hemlock Ravine!
Ooh, my puppets would love this! I’m dying over the anchor collar!
Stupid autocorrect, I obviously mean puppers*!
Love the products in this contest and love your blog/Instagram! We learn so much about this place I grew up in- who knew there were so many fun areas to explore!

I am so excited for this! If I don’t win I will definitely have to check out the Alderney Christmas market to get a collar!
Thanks for your message, Stephanie! Good luck in the draw, and if you don’t win, we’ll have over 30 collars available for sale at the Market!
