 INVITATION

You are invited to join us the ROOT44 Market, Stellenbosch every Saturday & Sunday. We have a shop in the Design Tent where you can get a first hand look at our products (and some exciting new things you didn't know about).

• You will have the opportunity to discuss how our fabrics can beautify your home and make your pet’s life better. Discuss your colour combinations with us and we can even create custom solutions, just for you and your pet.
• Because all cats and dogs are not created equal, we offer expert advice on choosing the right bed for your pet, whether they have breathing problems, hip dysplasia, injuries or just need a nice place to cuddle.

ROOT44 Market is on the corner of R44 and Annandale Road, Stellenbosch (Behind the big strawberry).

 MEET OUR BRAND AMBASSADOR -

KERSTIN FEHRSEN

Dog & Cat Pad is proud to announce that the eminent dog personality, Kerstin Fehrsen has agreed to be our Brand Ambassador! Kerstin brings a wealth of knowledge and experience about all things dog related to Dog & Cat Pad and we are very fortunate that she has agreed to represent our brand in Gauteng.

She is currently based in Johannesburg and can generally be found wherever there is a dog show.

Kerstin Fehrsen

If you are based in Gauteng, feel free to contact Kerstin to find out more about our products and services. She can be contacted at kerstin@dogandcatpad.co.za.

A little bit more about Kerstin:

Kerstin grew up surrounded by pets. She fell in love with Rough Collies (the Lassie dog 😊) at the age of 7, and 5 decades later, is still owned by a pack of them!

She has successfully campaigned all of the dogs she has owned (not only Rough Collies!) to their KUSA breed champion title, as well as 2 of her dogs to their FCI (Federation Cynologique Internationale) International Champion titles as well.

Kerstin is the proud owner, and breeder, of the first - and currently only! - Rough Collie Breed Grand Champion in South Africa.

She would like to think that the dogs she has bred, under her kennel affix Sanderburg, have brought great joy and pleasure to their owners.

She is an avid equestrian and has owned and ridden horses since childhood. Her current horse is a dapple grey Warmblood mare.

When not showing dogs or riding, she can be found curled up reading books. She enjoys sharing a glass of her favourite sparkling wine, Krone Borealis, in the company of her friends.

She has two adult children, a daughter who is an attorney, and a son who is a medical doctor.

Kerstin has lived in the UK; Bloemfontein; Cape Town; Windhoek in Namibia; and has just recently moved to Johannesburg.


 

DOG & CAT PAD at ROOT 44 MARKET, STELLENBOSCH

We have recently opened up shop at the ROOT 44 MARKET, just outside Stellenbosch and can be found in the Design Tent (Entrance 2), every Saturday and Sunday. Apart from all our beds, cushions and fabrics, we have some special items currently only available at the Market - Bags (for humans), Poo Bag Holders and our freshly baked Pet Treats!

The Market is totally dog friendly (as long as they are kept on leashes), so please bring them along and visit us - we have a Doggie Comfort Station where they can sample our Biscuits, get a drink of water and even lie down and rest on one of our beds.

HANDOVER OF CAR*SAFE SEAT BELTS TO DARG

Seat Belts to DARG

Today Dog & Cat Pad visited DARG (Domestic Animal Rescue Centre) in Hout Bay to handover the three Car*Safe Seat Belts donated to DARG by three of our Easter Draw winners.

The winners were given a choice of either receiving their prizes or donating them to an animal charity of their choice. We suggested DARG specifically in recognition of the amazing work they did during the Hout Bay fires
