For the past 10 months, Doug the pug and his owner, Matthew, have been posting their PawPost unboxing videos on their YouTube channel, The CaffCast. And now that it has finally come round to Doug’s first birthday, we thought it was time to get to know them a bit better, so we asked them a few questions!
What is Doug’s favourite toy from a PawPost box?
Doug absolutely loves his BioSafe germ smart dog toy from last months box. Not only that but it’s great for me because the fruits give me something to hold onto! It’s safe for him and for me when we are playing together.
What is Doug’s favourite treat from a PawPost box?
Without question it had to be Beautiful Joe’s Ethical Dog Treats! Since dog was three months old we have been using these fantastic treats for all of his puppy classes and training. They are very high reward treats to him, they are the only treats that get him to do great in his sits, stays and lay downs!
Do you have any funny stories about Doug?
Doug is a fantastic personality to be around, he makes everyone smile around him. I think the funniest time we’ve had together on our adventures so far was when I was first teaching him to play fetch in the house before he was allowed to go outside. I would throw the ball for him and because the flow was hard he just slid all over the place! Determined as ever though he got the ball every time.
Where is Doug’s favourite place to go for a walk?
He loves our local dog park because he can be let off lead and have fun with all his friends, but there is also a lovely wood quite close to where we live which he can’t get enough of!
Does Doug have any furry friends?
Just his doggy friends in the family, a black Labrador named Deano and a Jack Russell named Sassy. Although we are thinking about getting Doug a brother or sister sometime soon!
How did you and Doug meet and were you best friends straight away?
When I was first looking for a dog I knew I wanted some kind of pug. I didn’t mind if he/she was purebred or cross, but after checking all the local shelters I just couldn’t find any! So I ended up looking online and found this amazing litter close to where I live, I drove down and when the owner let all the puppies in Doug instantly jumped up onto me and licked my ear like crazy! That’s when I knew I wanted him to be my pup.
What advice would you give to someone getting a dog?
Make sure you have the time to spend with the dog you are thinking about getting, and if you have plenty of that, use high voiced praise for good behaviour, it really helped Doug get things right much sooner like toiler training!
Does Doug have any naughty habits?
He chews his bed all the time! All the corners are completely ruined, but he still loves to sleep in it so I don’t mind.
Does Doug have a special talent?
Being a YouTube celebrity of course! He is incredibly patient and well behaved when we are filming so that has to be a talent!
