There are still 10 shopping days until Christmas. We may be running out of time to shop online but some of the products I am sharing can be found at your local store, or save the ideas for next year’s birthday or everyday gifts!
NEW FAVORITE TREATS: We have so many treats we like, I thought for this time I would share a new one we just tried that the dogs love.
We recently received some treats from Clear Conscience Pet to try. I had never heard of this company, and so went online to see what they were all about. I was impressed with what I found. They started their company 3 years ago to create holistically formulated, cleanly sourced, and nutritional treats for dogs and cats. The ingredients are all natural with nothing artificial and they are made in the USA. They support sustainable farming, humane livestock husbandry, and fair trade practices. Their products are 100% guaranteed.
All that is great for this Mom, but we all know the real test is done by the dogs! We received the following products:
They were all a hit, especially the Lamb Airy Bites. When I got those out, the beagles forgot all their manners and started getting grabby. I had to remind them of their manners before they could get more. We ran out of the canned food we had been adding to Kobi’s food to get him to eat better, so we tried the Super Gravy and he loves it (the gravy is for cats as well as dogs). He is still eating great with just that added to his dry food along with a little water.
You can order their products online or their website has a store locator if you’d like to try to find them in your local area. They are currently holding a photo contest on Facebook and you could win some of their products by entering!
Disclaimer: We were given these treats by the company to try, but my opinions are my own and honest, and I only share products I feel would be of interest to my readers.
FAVORITE TOYS: The majority of the toys we own are made by West Paw Design. This is another company that you can feel good about. They are in Montana and all their products are made in the USA. Many of their products are made from recycled materials. Their Zogoflex toys are guaranteed to be indestructible, which is exactly what we needed with our Queen Destroyer Sheba. Cricket loves the way the Jive ball bounces, and the ball also works with our Chuck-It (one of Mom’s favorite things). We love their stuffed toys also, and they do last a bit longer than other stuffies.
Sheba also loves her Kong Wubbas. They hold up pretty well too, though in time she can tear them apart. We just bought her a new one to replace one that she had torn into, and she’s been carrying it around ever since.
FAVORITE COLLARS & LEASHES: We got an Ezy-Dog Cujo leash on the recommendation of other blogs, and I couldn’t be happier. Both the girls are pullers and this leash truly does have shock absorbing qualities that save my shoulders and arms. They also have many other quality leashes to choose from.
We have bought many collars from Kady’s Kollars. Part of all her sale proceeds go to National Mill Dog Rescue. Each collar is handmade with colorful ribbons sewn on to durable webbing. Recently I really wanted some fall themed collars and I contacted the company and she emailed me several samples to choose from. She then custom made the collars for me for each of the dogs. Her collars are stylish and durable and we still have all the ones we have bought.
FAVORITE DOG/CAT BEDS: I love these beds, again from West Paw Design. This is their Heyday Bed with Microsuede. Not only do both the dogs and cats love it, but I love it because it is easy to keep clean. When needed it can be thrown right into the washer. The stuffing is made from recycled materials. I love it so much, this is the second one we’ve bought.
