Q: How did you get into dogs and what lifestyle do associate you with them?
A: My daughter worked on us for 7 years and finally convinced us to get a dog. The fact that miniature poodles do not shed and do not need constant exercise, meant that our lifestyle wouldn't be too affected by the new addition to our family. Tobi is very cuddly!
Q: How often do you talk to your dog and about what (fashion, style...)?
A: I talk to him a lot, but mostly about how cute he is and what he still needs to learn.
Q: Your favourite restaurants, bars, cafes and parks with dog?
A: We love the Augarten! We make regular visits.
Q: Which dog habits do you prefer to keep under wraps and what do you insist on?
A: I can't quite understand the constant sniffing of every piece of dirt on the street, but I have to take it in stride. I insist that he is bathed regularly and doesn't get anything from the dining table. Otherwise, I'm probably not very strict.
Q: Do you travel with your dog and where do you prefer to go? And what should not be missing?
A: For the time being only within Austria and mostly to the countryside. We are still getting him used to traveling in the car. As with human children, his food and toys are packed - and the cuddly blanket!
Q: What do you value in dog accessories?
A: As with all things, I prefer to buy quality over quantity. Similar to the children's accessories, I don't like too much plastic or gaudy designs!
