Protecting our dogs on walks is something we need to be concerned about.

Dog attacks are unlikely, but they do happen; Catherine tells us, what equipment we need and how to protect our dogs and selves.  Springtime is just around the corner, which means more time outdoors with our dogs.  Warmer weather and longer days ahead.

Why I Love Bully Sticks As Dog Treats 0

Does your dog love treats? That’s almost a silly question, right? Does your dog like to chew on things? This is almost an even sillier question. Well, my dogs love to chew on things especially my shoes and love treats at any opportunity possible. Therefore, Bully Stick dog treats are always a staple on my monthly shopping list. They’re a great dog treat that will keep them occupied for hours. It keeps them away from chewing my valuables, and make them feel special too. Rather than chewing on my laces, bags or shoes they’re chewing on something that actually has health benefits to them.   What’s so great about a Bully Stick dog treat? Bully stick dog treats are 100% beef, dog chews that are often made from the pizzle or penis of the bull. These healthy dog treats have historically been used for different purposes from walking canes to medicinal powders. However, I’m a strong advocate for it being utilized for our pups; especially with all the health benefits associated with them. What I love most about Bully Stick dog treats are that it gives my dogs plenty of ‘play-time’ with them. They aren’t your one or two chews and done kind […]

Health conscious paw parents give treats a serious and much-needed makeover. When our furry companions deserve a treat we don’t just want to give them something that tastes delicious (or so we assume that it does) we want something equally beneficial to their health. They deserve something wholesome and tasty. As well as something that makes them feel extra special. However, because we feed them so many treats it’s often most convenient to just go to the store and purchase a bag of seemingly healthy dog treats. After all, it’s just a ‘treat’ right?
