Dog of the Month: Rue

By now, you’ve probably heard that one of the many perks about working for SmartPak is that we have a dog-friendly office (pretty cool, right?). While you might think that this would make for a loud and stressful work environment, our canine SmartPakers are just as remarkable as our human employees! They all play an important role around the office, and each of them has a distinct personality that makes them a delight to share our work space with. We know that horse people and dog people are often one in the same, so we thought it would be cool to share some of our SmartPak pups with you!

This month we’re featuring Rue, the cuddly Beagle mix that works with her owner Casey on our Marketing Team.


Casey as a SmartPaker
I am the Product Manager for the SmartSupplements line, meaning I head up our product development here at SmartPak. We’ve added a lot of unique formulas to our SmartSupplement line over the past several years, and it’s been great to play such an active role from their creation to product launch! I think I’ve got the best job in the world developing supplements that help riders take the best care of their horses.

Rue as a SmartPaker
Rue is 100% pure sweetness and loves literally everyone. She will never turn down a chance to get pats or a belly rub, which can make it hard to get work done! Around the office, she can often be found napping, rolling around on her back (which we fondly refer to as “upside-down-brown”), performing her famous circus bear trick for anything that resembles a treat, or sometimes “dancing” with some of my coworkers. She is certainly entertaining and always up for anything!

Rue’s Best Friend
Rue is best friends with her coworker Squish (the resident Corgi), and the two of them have so much fun together! They love going on walks around the office, and it usually leads to them playing in the aisle near their desks. These two definitely keep the office lively!


Rue’s Favorite Products
Over the years as a SmartPak dog, Rue has definitely developed a preference for some of the treats we carry. Her most recent favorite is the Whimzees Dental Chew Alligators – just one these can keep her busy for hours! She enjoys chewing on these both at home and in the office, and I really like the dental health benefits they provide.

When it comes to rewarding her circus bear performance, another one of Rue’s favorite treats is the Barkworthies Sweet Potato Chews. These are bite sized and healthy, and Rue thinks they taste fantastic! The Sweet Potato Chews have definitely become a staple treat for her, and she will do whatever she can to get them.

Rue also sports her SmartPak Soft Padded Leather Dog Collar around the office, which keeps her comfortable at work and at play. She has the havana color with pink trim for a little stylish flair, and it even includes her name on a brass nameplate. I love these collars because they are so soft for all-day comfort but very durable with an equestrian twist of an added nameplate!
