Keep Your Dog Entertained With Exciting Toys

Keeping your dog entertained is no mean feat. Dogs are notorious for having lots of energy, especially puppies and finding ways to keep them occupied can be hard. Dogs need a lot of entertaining and most don’t like being left alone for long periods of time, however sometimes you just don’t have the choice but to leave your pup to fend for itself. Many dogs will start showing destructive tendencies when left on their own so you might come home one day to find your favorite pair of shoes chewed to within an inch of their lives or your new sofa with bite marks in the arms.

If you do have to leave your dog home alone for extended periods of time or just want to treat your pooch with something fun to play with then a dog toy is the perfect solution. There are many different types to choose from which is great in terms of choice but it does make it difficult to work out which one your pet will really enjoy playing with. Dog toys are all designed to be enjoyed in different ways and it is up to you to think about the preference of your dog when choosing an ideal dog toy. Here are just a few to think about: chew toys, fetch toys, plush and stuffed toys, rope toys, interactive toys and even ones designed to keep your pooch’s mouth healthy. When choosing a dog toy for your beloved pet it is important to bear in mind his or her preferences first and foremost but you also need to think about safety. Some dog toys can present safety hazards so you do need to be aware of this.

Active dog toys are the products that are designed to keep your dog both mentally and physically active. These tend to be very tough and durable so will last forever and won’t easily get destroyed by your pet. These comes in all shapes and sizes, a favorite of most dogs is the rope toy as these are great for playtime with a willing owner. Active toys tend to come in bone shapes and are the sort of dog toy that you and your canine companion can enjoy for many years to come.

Distraction dog toys are different to active toys as these are filled with food treats to keep your pet occupied for long periods of time. Your dog will love the challenge of having to chew through the toy to reach the treat at the center and will feel rewarded when they do so. Most dogs love these sorts of dog toys because they enjoy the challenge and the treat at the end of it; it’s like a mini treasure hunt for them!

Comfort toys are the sort of fluffy, plush toys that your dog just loves to cuddle up to in bed. These are designed to keep your pet cozy when sleeping and provide them with comfort. These soft dog toys are available in many different shapes and sizes and most friendly dogs will just love snuggling up to their new best friend when bedtime comes round.

When you set out to treat your pet to a new dog toy the most important thing to bear in mind is his or her size. You don’t want anything that is too small and could be a choking hazard; on the other hand you don’t want anything too big for a small breed as it could intimidate them. As long as the toy is safe and well constructed then you should have no problems and your pet will love you for their new toy.

Keep Your Dog Looking Groomed To Perfection With Happy Tails Spa

Just as we humans need lotions and potions to keep us looking our best, so do our canine companions. Dogs can have just as many skin problems as we can; therefore sometimes they need special products to help calm the problem. Happy Tails Spa Products are natural and eco-friendly and have been designed to deal with a whole host of canine quandaries. From doggie bad breath to itchy coats, Happytails has a product to solve your pooch’s problem. All the products available are cruelty free, gentle and have all been thoroughly tested so you can be sure that your dog is in good company.

If your problem is a smelly pooch then Dry Dog Instant Clean is the product for you and your stinky animal. This product doesn’t just mask odors; it actually works to get rid of them in a quick, easy step. Other dog odor products tend to mask the smell so the results are only temporary, whereas the Happytails solution uses a natural ingredient called Ordenone which traps the odor-causing proteins to leave your hound smelling of roses. Your dog will feel fresh and almost like a new animal after using the product, results last from 4 to 6 hours so that’s up to 6 hours of a fresh-smelling pet!

Dry Dog Instant Clean is a completely safe product that is perfect if you are looking for an in-between grooming freshen up spray. If your dog has a tendency to pong even after regular baths or if you simply don’t have time to wash your dog before you’ve got company coming over, then this product is a lifesaver. Your dog is an active fellow and he is bound to start to smell a bit musty or sweaty after his daily exercise so why not use this lovely, refreshing kiwi melon scent to freshen your doggie friend up.

If your dog suffers from ear problems then he is not alone. Statistics show that ear infections are the biggest reason why dog owners take their pets to the vet. In a lot of cases, most ear problems will take a couple of visits to sort and this can be incredibly frustrating, not to mention costly. If you want to save you and your dog the hassle of dealing with an ear infection then you need to start a regular at-home cleaning routine. This will stop infection happening in the first place and help ensure that any problems are caught early on.

Ear Clear is a Happytails product specially designed for smelly, itchy and infected ears. Containing no pharmaceuticals or chemicals, this wonder product works by clearing away dirt and debris and leaving ears clear. If your dog suffers from excessive wax build up then this product is perfect as it help soften and remove excess wax. The antibacterial formula contains arnica and chaparral oils to help ease any discomfort and pain.

Most dogs are notorious for spending a lot of time scratching themselves but some are itchier than others. If your dog is constantly scratching or prone to allergies then Healthy Skin Shiny Coat by Happytails may be able to ease the problem. This product is an all natural detoxifier that works with the dog’s liver, kidneys and lymphatic system to get rid of all the nasty toxins that could be triggering allergies and itching.

This product can be used in conjunction with anti-itch shampoo’s and conditioners and is applied directly in the mouth or on food or even in water. Once the formula is in the system the natural formula gets to work reducing skin problems, controlling the itch-scratch cycle and a general improvement in the health of your dog’s coat.

All the products available on the Happytails website are 100% natural and completely safe. Whatever your dog’s issue, Happytails has a solution.

Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed: We Honor Reilly the Boxer

We always love getting emails from our customers & readers asking us to feature their dog or favorite breed for our Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed blog series every Thursday. As always we are honored to oblige. Thanks Irma, we are excited to spotlight your boxer Reilly!

Height: Male: 22.5-25; Female: 21-23.5 inches

Weight: Male: 65-80; Female: 50-65 lbs

Coat: The boxer has a short-haired coat, which is shiny, smooth, and fits tightly to the body.

Color: The coat comes in such colors as fawn, red, and brindle, with “flashings” of white on their underbelly, chest, and all four feet. In some cases the “flashing” will appear on their face. The Boxer is an average shedder that sheds year round.

Appearance: Square in proportion and consisting of good substance and musculature, the boxer features long, sloping shoulders and straight, firmly-muscled front legs. The back legs are strongly muscled and have broad, curved thighs. The compact feet offer well-arched toes. The head of this breed is clean and without deep wrinkles. Wrinkles are usually found on the forehead when ears are erect. The dark brown eyes offer an intelligent and alert expression. Some boxers ears are cropped, but if left natural, the ears are thin, flat-lying and moderate in size. The well-proportioned muzzle features a broad, black nose, and the typical bite of the boxer is undershot. Muscular and clean, the neck of this breed is distinctly arched and blends smoothly into the body. The short, straight back is firm and smooth. Usually docked, the tail is set high and normally carried in an upward position.

Temperament: The Boxer is patient, lively, strong, alert, curious, playful, loyal and dignified. He’s self-confident, courageous, strong and athletic. hey carry themselves with pride, but are never arrogant. They have a stoic stance, and are intelligent, loving, delightful companions. He’s a very social dog and loves people. He’s craves your affection and physical contact. He thrives on pats, hugs, scratches and belly rubs. He loves to sit on your lap! He loves to be with you at all times; he will become your shadow. He is the kind of dog who is always in your face. He’s a playful clown. He adores children and is very patient with them and loves to play with them! However because of his boisterous nature he could unintentionally knock-over a small child. He’s lively and active (high energy level) around the home, constantly on the move. If he isn’t getting enough exercise or becomes bored he’ll find mischievous ways to occupy himself: usually chewing anything in sight. They exhibit curiosity, but are wary of strangers. He’s wary and standoffish with strangers until he warms up to them. He’s an instinctive guard dog, protective of his family and will not back down if threatened. They are keenly alert and have a heightened sense of hearing, which make them excellent guard dogs. He drools and slobbers quite a lot, especially after drinking. And he sometimes has flatulence which can be quite smelly. He is not a dog who can live outside.

Health: The life expectancy for a Boxer is about 10-12 years. Some major concerns are cardiomyopathy and other heart problems, sub-aortic stenosis, and thyroid problems. Boxers are also prone to cancer and skin allergies.  Sometimes prone to epilepsy and hip dysplasia. From age eight on they are more likely to get tumors than other breeds.  These dogs may drool and snore. May have excessive flatulence. Some white Boxers are prone to deafness.

Give Your Dog the Nutrients He Needs With Orijen Dry Dog Food

When it comes to our own diet, although we may provide ourselves with the odd treat, we will always try and ensure that our diet is balanced. As we are all aware, a diet of sugar and fat is no way in which to nurture our bodies and by following a diet similar to this, we will feel unhealthy, lethargic and in turn, may become prone to illness. So, why is it that many dog owners do not apply the same principle to the diet of their dog?

With a vast number of dog food brands on the market, it can be hard to decipher which brand will be the best for your dog in terms of nutrition. Most dog owners will look for brands that are labeled as ‘pedigree’ as often, these products will be made by trusted brands. However, have you ever thought to investigate into exactly what goes into your dog’s food and how it benefits him, if at all?

Good quality dog food will provide your dog with the nutrition he needs, helping to promote a healthy coat, strong bones and lean muscles. Furthermore, it will help their general health and that of their development. Dog food that contains only the most healthy and needed ingredients will be evident by eliminating the level of digestive complaints your dog experiences which in turn, will effect the consistency of their stool and/or gas. As a result, your dog will feel happier which will promote good behavior.

As many dog owners may find, dogs like humans, can become picky about the foods they eat. As a result, some owners may need to introduce a number of different types of healthy dog foods in order to identify the brand they most enjoy, which in turn, will help you ensure that your dog is receiving the correct level of food and nutrients he needs on a daily basis.

Being self-confessed dog lovers, the brains behind Orijen dog food used their own personal experiences with their dogs to create natural, tasty dog food that would provide their dogs with the nutrition they required for a longer, healthier life. Orijens’s 6 Fresh Fish with Sea Vegetables Dry dog food will provide your canine with a satisfactory level of daily protein which is provided by the fresh and preservative-free fish that is used within the product. The 6 Fresh Fish dog food consists of high ratios of salmon, herring and flounder, sourced directly from Vancouver’s Pacific Northwestern waters. This kibble is bursting with nutrients and flavor that will give your dog all he needs on a daily basis. Furthermore, the mix contains a number of regional fruits and vegetables that are rich in phyto-nutrients, B-vitamins and minerals.

Orijen Adult 80/20 Formula Dry dog food has been devised to match your dog’s daily diet, packed full of protein that dogs require on a day-to-day basis for development and general health. Including free-run chicken and turkey, eggs and wild-caught fish, Orijen Adult 80/20 is made using only fresh ingredients, ensuring that it is free from preservatives and jam packed full of proteins and fats that will fully nourish your dog. With a limited amount of carbohydrates within the mix, your dog will be provided with an almost matching diet to what his body requires. As all dog owners will discover, dogs are avid meat lovers. Orijen’s Regional Read Meat Formula Dry dog food contains a fantastic mix of free-range meats including wild boar, beef, lamb and pork. In abiding by Orijen’s policy, this mix is also free from preservatives and contains 75% of a dog’s daily recommended level of protein. The fresh, natural ingredients used help to promote a healthy coat and skin. Furthermore, the addition of fruits and vegetables within the mix can help to satisfy cravings that can cause dogs to eat grass which can make them ill.

In order to provide your dog with a good level of health, you need to provide him with fuel that will give him the vitamins and minerals he needs. By purchasing Orijen dog food, you can rest assured that your dog is being provided with only the best, all natural and all tasty food.

About Wags and Whiskers Animal Rescue:
Wags and Whiskers is dedicated to saving lives and finding forever homes for stray, abandoned and surrendered dogs in high kill shelters.  They are a small, no kill 501 (c)(3) non profit and volunteer run organization. All of their dogs listed are in foster homes waiting to be adopted and because of this, we get to know the dogs’ personalities very well and use this information to match them to an appropriate home. They do not have a physical shelter, therefore they are in need of safe foster homes. This rescue is not funded by public funds nor does it receive many donations, so it is dependent on adoption fees to keep operating.

Memorial Day Pet Safety Tips: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 101

It’s time to kick off summer with a Memorial Day celebration! Nothing say’s fun in the sun then a barbecue and a good old fashion picnic with family and friends (even Fido would agree). But before you ignite the grill, chomp down on a juicy burger, lounge around the pool and enjoy the festivities remember safety first. Although it is recommended by the ASPCA to keep your dog indoors during those backyard BBQ’s. If you insist on allowing your dog to partake in the festive affair it is important that as a responsible pet owner you are aware of the risk. Here are some precautionary pet safety tips to make Memorial day a blast for everyone.

1. Keep alcoholic beverages out of paws reach. Alcohol is potentially poisonous to pets, so make sure pet does not accidentally consume any wine, beer or spirits.

2. Stay on regular diet & resist those pleading eyes. Although it may be tempting to throw your dogs licking chops some picnic fare we advise that you resist the urge.  Just say “No” to those angelic, begging eye! Any change in your dog’s diet can result in an upset stomach. Certain foods like onions, avocado, chocolate, grapes and raisins are especially toxic to pets.

3. Use ONLY dog specific bug repellent and sunscreen. Never use human insect repellent or sunscreen on your dog. Ingestion can result in drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, excessive thirst and lethargy.

4. Fido should stay clear of matches, candles & lighter fluid. Keep your pet away from matches, citronella candles and lighter fluid, which if eaten can irritate the stomach, lungs and central nervous system. Before you light that hot grill make sure your four legged family member is out of harms way.

5. Supervise pool time. Never leave kids or pets unsupervised around a pool or lake. Like humans not all dogs are expert swimmers. Also, pools aren’t large water bowls—they contain chlorine and other toxic chemicals that can cause stomach upset.

6. Carry ID. If traveling with your pet, take identification for them and their health records. Make sure they are wearing their collar & tags at all time in the event that become lost.

7. Never leave pet in hot car. Your pet is just as susceptible to dying of a heatstroke when the mercury rises. It only takes a few minutes for the inside of your car to get excessively hot and turn into a sauna.

8. Provide plenty of water. Always make sure your pet has plenty of fresh water no matter where you are. 
9. Be prepared rain or shine. Make sure your pet has a comfortable place to get out of the sun, rain, or other types of weather.
10. Provide pet with a safe & quiet place to rest. Not only is it important to make sure your guest are relaxed and comfortable, you should also do so for your pet. Remember Memorial day can be quite stressful and noisy on your pet so it is important to provide with a place of refuge to rest their head and get away from the crowd. Because no loving pet owner wants a startled dog or cat running away, bolting for the doggy door or jumping the fence.
11. Keep gates and fences closed and save yourself some heartbreak. Memorial Day is a high traffic holiday with so many people heading out for a cookout. When the kids are playing in the yard, please remind them to keep the gate closed at all times if the dog has access to a fenced-in area. This will ensure that your pet does not run into oncoming traffic or a busy street and get struck.

As always, if you suspect your pet has ingested something poisonous from the picnic table, please contact your veterinarian or the ASPCA’s Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) at (888) 426-4435.

Choosing The Best Dog Food For Your Pooch

So you’ve carefully chosen your new canine companion, but what happens when you get him or her home and don’t know what to feed them? Choosing which food your dog eats is one of the most important decisions you will make for your pet as it will influence how it grows and how healthy it is. The world of dog food is a confusing place as there is so much choice; there’s dry dog food, dry mixers, tinned dog food, raw dog food and even frozen dog food. Then within these you also have variances which include natural dog food, organic dog food and stuff that contains preservatives and additives. As you can see, it certainly isn’t easy!

In general, when you buy your new pet you will be given a few days supply of the food and water that the animal is used to. This tends to be the case wherever you get your dog from, whether it’s from a breeder or a rescue center. Most people will stick to whatever they are given as the pet is used to this type of dog food but if you find that your dog starts to go off the food or has health issues such as allergies as a result of the dog food you are giving them, then you might need to think about changing it.

So what are the differences in dog food? Dry dog food has been baked and then dried into small cubes. The best thing about using dry dog food is that it helps to keep your dog’s teeth in good condition as chewing helps to promote a healthy mouth. Dry dog food contains all the recommended levels of vitamins and minerals so you can be sure that your dog is getting all that it needs from his food.

Tinned food is known as a complete dog food as it contains all the nutrients your dog needs to be healthy. Tinned food has normally been cooked with gravy or jelly added. It is classed as a ‘wet’ dog food and although it is packed full of nutrients, you need to make sure that the tinned food you buy doesn’t have too many artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

Raw dog food hasn’t always been the most popular form of dog food but has enjoyed a bit of a revival of late. This is because many dog owners have decided to stay away from grain based diets for their pets as they believe that this sort of food cannot be fully digested. In general, if you are feeding your dog a raw food diet you should stick to 80 meat, 10% bone or tripe and the last 10% is made up of vegetables, but you don’t need to necessarily stick to this rule.

Frozen dog food is a relatively new concept but all it consists of is packets of dog food that have either been cooked and frozen or just frozen. There are many variations available including chicken, chopped meat and tripe. All you need to do is defrost the food thoroughly and then you can feed it straight to your pet. As with all types of dog food, it is important to do your research before starting your dog on a frozen food diet as it may not be suitable for your breed of dog.

There is no right or wrong when it comes to dog food, it is more a personal choice. All types have pros and cons and it is important to be aware of these before making your decision. Take the time to find the right dog food for your pet and you can be sure that your dog will appreciate it and live a long, happy and healthy life.
