“Dear PoP,

I am adopting a puppy soon and was hoping your readers could help me out with recommendations. I am new to having a dog, so I need all the help I can get. I need recommendations for everything – vets, groomers, dog walkers, doggy daycare, kennels/boarding, anything and everything will be helpful to me. I live in Columbia Heights, but I do have a car.

PS. Where does Ernie hangout? I am pretty sure my pup will want to be his bud.”

We talked about some dog trainers here and had lots of vet recommendations here. We talked about where to get your pet microchipped here. Lastly, Eric Nuzum introduced us to Little Rascals Doggie Day Care here.

So for those that have or have had puppies – what do you wish you knew back then?

Ed. Note: I’m happy to say that Mr. Larry’s Pet Supplies has officially opened at 3303 11th St, NW in Columbia Heights:
