Recap of Denver Summer Events with the Smart Cookie Cart - Colorado's First Food Truck for Dogs!Posted September 30, 2013 by Smart Cookie Dog Treats
It sounds so cliche, but can you believe fall is here, and the summer is gone?! Not to mention that tomorrow is October 1st! In honor of the summer season, we wanted to share with everyone a recap of all of the events Smart Cookie had a chance to be a part of. From the dog park, to the pet expo, to partaking in rescue events and neighborhood parties, we had the opportunity to be a part of so many fantastic Denver events!
Chatfield off-leash dog park is one of our absolute favorite places to take the Smart Cookie Cart. There are always TONS of playmates for Sam, our Chief Tasting Officer, so she gives it four paws up! Chatfield State Park has Colorado's largest dedicated dog off-leash area, which provides over 69 acres of land, 2 large swimming ponds (really more like small lakes), and miles of trails, both paved and gravel. Located south of C470 and east of Wadsworth Blvd, Chatfield has a beautiful view of the Rocky Mountains and the Red Rocks of Roxborough Park. During the fall, winter and spring months, you will still find Smart Cookie at the Chatfield Dog Park on warm & sunny days, so stop by, say hi, and try a treat with your 4-legged friend (after all, our treats are made with human-grade ingredients!)
People watching at its finest. Located on Main Street in Parker, CO the farmer's market boasts a wide variety of fruits and veggies, along with local artisans, bakers and jewelers. We loved getting to meet so many of you and your furry family members throughout the summer!
Horseshoe Craft & Flea Market
We were introduced to these markets by the owner of Mutts & Mittens - some of the coolest handmade dog collars you've ever seen! Smart Cookie and Mutts & Mittens partnered up at the Horseshoe market in July, and we had a blast! We are also participating in the Horseshoe Craft & Flea Market this Saturday on October 5th.
Garden Party at Arvada's County Fair Garden Center
We had the pleasure of meeting Candi & Danielle and the Garden Center family at their annual garden party! Coming this fall, you can find our treats for sale in their garden centers!
The opportunity to network with other pet industry professionals was great, and we enjoyed seeing so many people attend with their dogs! We gave out more samples than we can count, and got to meet Shorti Rossi from Animal Planet's "Pit Boss" - all in all, a great event!
At the end of the summer, the city of Lakewood opens its pools to pooches!
On September 8th, VRCC Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Hospital holds a day-long event where 48 Colorado veterinary hospitals compete for amazing prizes and bragging rights, all to raise money and benefit PetAid Colorado Disaster Services. Smart Cookie was proud to be a sponsor at this year's event!
We had a blast at Vladimir Jones' Top Dog Show this year! Thanks again to Vladimir Jones for inviting us to cater the dog treats!
What a fantastic event to benefit Colorado Pug Rescue! Pug Races, Doggie Costume Contest, and Pug Plop Drop Bingo were just a few of the shenanigans that took place. Lots of money was raised for the rescue, and we saw a bunch of happy adoptable pugs go home with their new owners.
