Red Hydrant joins Dog Gurus
Red Hydrant Pet Spa, Boutique and Doggie Day Care has joined The Dog Gurus community, offering ongoing education and tools for professional pet care centers for off-leash play.
The Gurus’ goal is to keep dogs and staff safe while dogs are off-leash, looking at more than just whether a dog is getting exhausted.
“We are proud of our focus on safety in our off-leash dog play program, and felt membership with The Dog Gurus would allow us to share in the best practices available to the industry,” said Martin Ellis, owner of Red Hydrant, in a release.
Red Hydrant is located at 21780 State Road 54 in Lutz, and can be found online at TheRedHydrant.com.
Corporation filing fees could drop
A new bill from State Sen. Wilton Simpson, R-Trilby, would reduce the annual fees small businesses pay to the state.
S.B. 776 would reduce annual filing fees with the Florida Department of State’s Division of Corporations by $25 for corporations and limited partnerships, Simpson said in his regular newsletter. It also would break down late fees into a tiered system beginning with a $125 penalty for business filings made after May 1, gradually increasing to $400 after July 31.
Currently, anyone filing after May 1 would incur a $400 penalty.
The bill also would create a flat fee for corporate document filings from a range of $35 to $87.50, instead to $25.
Simpson’s bill has made it through its first committee, and is still working its way to the Senate floor in Tallahassee.
