dax and xena from the dog spot at local home spot

Hi, my name is Dax and my sister (sitting in front of me) is Xena. Xena is the spokesdog for LocaLHomeSpot.com and I am the Paw-prentice. I've been working closely with the crew at LocaL Home Spot and have now taken on my first solo project - Dax's Dog Spot.

Home Dax's Dog Spot

Dax and I have Moved and Dax's Dog Spot has a new home!

You may have noticed that LocalHomeSpot is not showing any new blogs by Dax, my Golden Retriever. That is because all new blog posts are now located at  Evelyn M Interiors under the Evelyn M's Design Blog tab.

I may have restructured and moved to a new location but all upcoming articles in their new home will be just as interesting and informative as before and Dax’s Dog Spot will now be under a subheading simply called the Dog Spot.

Did you know I also now have a Cat Corner? Please join me in my new location and please join me on my new Facebook page as well, see you soon.

Hands Free Retractable Dog Leash by Lishinu

When mom takes Xena and me into town on a leash – because that’s the bylaw - she doesn’t have any hands free. There’s two of us and she only has two hands but with a hands free dog leash her hands would be free to do other things like pet us! The Lishinu dog leash is not only hands free, but retractable as well so she can give us as much or as little slack as the situation requires.

Mr. Dog Marble Water Bowls with FDA approved Food Safe Sealant

Aside from being organic and beautiful, marble is a great insulator. It is for the insulative qualities that Mr. Dog designed and created their marble water bowl in black or white. It keep’s a dog’s water cool for longer and also doesn’t tip over as easily when us pooches aren’t paying attention. Of course in my opinion, it’s usually the humans that manage to kick our water bowls over- just sayin - but either way the gorgeous Mr. Dog Marble Water Bowl stays upright all the time and that’s a good thing but even better – the Mr. Dog Marble Water Bowls are finished in an FDA approved food safe sealant!
