The Doge Pound provided holders with an update about its 3D dog NFTs, which it is expected to release in the coming weeks.

The 3D Doge Pound NFTs are in the final design stage, according to a recent Discord post.

"Last night, the 3D Doge [NFT] model got its final touchups and is in a place that we're happy with for now," the team wrote. "It's possible we could tweak the base model a little bit more based on some of the overall feedback once we show the first animated preview."

Even with the tweaks, the first animation is expected to be released to the public in the coming days. 

"With that said, the model is now in rigging for a few touch ups today and then being sent to animation tomorrow," the team continued. "We will need about three to four days of animations to get it to the point where it is ready to finally show the first animated and rigged version of it. That puts us at the latter half of next week."

The team also announced its new community NFT program is now underway.

Tomorrow at 3:30 p.m. ET, a meeting will be held on the Doge Stage in Discord to discuss the program. Next week, the first workshop class is expected to launch. Each workshop will be adjusted based on community feedback.

The Doge Pound announced its most recent B2B (business to business) partnership, aligning itself with an award-winning web2 habit building product, Habit Nest.

"This is an exciting moment because as we're navigating this bear market, the projects we're most bullish on aligning ourselves with are ones that operate like a startup with real value to add to this web3 space," Griff wrote on Discord. "Please welcome in The Phoenixes by Habit Nest ... an eight-figure welness web2 business with dozens of award-winning products focused on habit building."

The Phoenixes is an upcoming NFT project from Habit Nest, which is expected to mint in August 2022. The project's private Discord is unlocked for The Doge Pound NFT holders.

The partnership also involves The Phoenixes launching a health and wellness program from The Doge Pound community in the near future.

"With daily challenges to improve the health and wellness of our community, The Phoenixes will be leading ongoing experiences with World of Women (another Habit Nest partner)," the Discord message reads. "You will get an opportunity to earn rewards as you engage with wellness activations, both in Discord and through [Habit Nest's] web3-compatible mobile app."

Habit Nest has been featured in Harvard Business Review, Bustle, Business Insider, Good Morning America, Los Angeles Times, Women's Health, and more.

It currently sells mobile applications, habit-building and fitness journals, and planners and trackers.

The company was started and founded by Mikey Ahdoot, Ari Banayan, and Amir Atighehchi and has since added Lindsay McDermott as Chief Happiness Officer, Jamie Macaffer as Head of Design, and Aston Martinez as Copywriter.
