Best Bully Sticks New Products: Earthbath Grooming Wipes for Dogs

We are constantly searching for the best of the best so if you have any feedback or product suggestions please let us know. So here is what’s new on the site and in our wag of the woods!

Introducing Earthbath All Natural Grooming Wipes

EarthBath Grooming WipesFrom the beginning, earthbath has been developed and manufactured in California with only the safest, finest ingredients from nature. From humble roots and a local following–based on the principles of purity and efficacy–earthbath has grown from four shampoos to a comprehensive line of totally natural shampoos, wipes, spritzes, and grooming foams that are sold and used by conscientious animal lovers across the nation and around the world.

At earthbath, they design all of their products with the health or your fine furred friend in mind. Their pets are their “kids,” their best friends and their cuddly bedmates all rolled into one fun-filled furry package, and they think pets deserve only nature’s finest blends of cleansing potions and sumptuous, effective essences. That’s why earthbath products are totally natural, non toxic, paraben free, phthalate free, and phosphate free. Their products are made in the USA with human-grade ingredients and pure essential oils, with none of the artificial colors and fragrances present in some other brands.

If you haven’t guess, dog odor can be unbearable, a dull dry coat can be humiliating, and irritated skin can be uncomfortable-even for a dog. Which is why we are proud to offer Earthbath Grooming Wipes!

We’re very excited to carry these all-natural treats. They are unique because they are 100% venison and hypoallergenic, so even dogs with allergies can eat ’em up.

Both the shins and the hooves are wrapped in deer weasand, which is the “food pipe,” or esophagus. The weasand is high in chondroitin, for healthy joints.

Both chews are recommended for small to medium dogs and are available individually or in 10-packs.

ThunderShirts
First-Ever Anxiety Calming “Shirt” for Stress and Stormy Weather

Thundershirt for Dogs  

Amid the change in seasons, lightning storms, and rainy weather, our dogs may feel extra stress and anxiety. They may feel unsettled, bark more often, and just not act like their usual selves.  Until now, there just hasn’t been a well-designed, inexpensive pressure wrap commonly used for dog anxiety.

 

To the rescue comes the Thundershirts! Thousands of veterinarians and dog trainers now recommend it for anxious pooches. Medication is the most common treatment of anxiety, but drugs are expensive and risky, and they don’t always alleviate the problem. 

 

The patented Thundershirt is affordable and highly effective. Its gentle, constant pressure has a truly calming effect on your dog’s nervous system. It relieves anxiety, fear, and over-excitement.

 

Over 80% of dogs show significant improvement in symptoms with the Thundershirt, and that number is based on surveys of over 2,000 customers!  

 

We carry a full line of Thundershirts, including sizes for all dogs. Here is a list of all the sizes, including recommended chest sizes and weights for each: 

  • XXS – 9″-13.5″ – less than 12 lbs.   
  • XS – 13″-18″ – 10-18 lbs.  
  • S – 16″-23″ – 15-25 lbs.  
  • M – 18″-26″ – 20-50 lbs.  
  • L – 24″-32″ – 40-70 lbs.  
  • XL – 31″-40″ – 60-100 lbs.  
  • XXL  – 38″-50″ – greater than 90 lbs.

Thundershirt is changing the way you can help your dog handle stress. Try it out at Best Bully Sticks!

How To Curb Your Dogs Excessive Barking : 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 127

How To Curb Your Dogs Excessive Barking Dogs bark by nature, but incessant barking can be a nuisance to pet owners and irritate the neighbors. The key to curbing excessive barking is to understand why your dog is barking. Is your dog barking for attention? Does your dog have separation anxiety? Is your dog protecting his territory? Here are reasons why dogs barks and how to remedy the situation.

1. Attention bark. You must show your dog that barking for attention doesn’t work. If your dog whines or barks for attention, completely ignore him. Don’t acknowledge him, make eye contact, or speak to him until he calms down. Once he calms down, you can tell him he is a good dog.

2. Territorial bark. The key to this type of bark is to acknowledge it. Your dog is trying to tell you that someone is close to your property. On the first bark, tell your dog “good job.” On the second bark tell your dog “that’s enough.” If your dog continues to bark, send him to a designated place, “that’s enough Rover, get in your bed.”

3. Separation anxiety bark. With this type of bark, you have to teach your dog it’s not a big deal to be alone. When you leave the house, don’t make a big production. Don’t say good-bye, give him treats or anything that signals that you leaving an “event.” When you come home, don’t make a big deal. When you dog gets excited, don’t look at him or acknowledge him until he calms down. When he does this, you can tell him “good dog.”

Tip. Teach your dog a no bark command. Train your dog to go to a place upon command. For example, “go to your bed.” So when your dog barks, you can send him to the designated place to distract him from barking.

Top 10 Paw Care Tips For Dogs

Top 10 Paw Care Tips For DogsYour dog’s feet sure are made for walking, but did you know they are also made for protecting? Pads provide extra cushioning to help protect bones and joints from shock, provide insulation against extreme weather, aid walking on rough ground and help protect tissue deep within the paw. With all that work to do, it’s no wonder your pooch’s paws often take a bit of a beating. Keep a spring in your pet’s step with the ASPCA’s top 10 paw care tips:

1. Pamper With Pedicures: Your dog’s nails should just about touch the ground when she walks. If her nails are clicking or getting snagged on the floor, it’s time for a pedicure. Ask your veterinarian or a groomer for advice about what types of nail trimmers are best for your dog and how to use them properly.

2. Snip and Trim: Trim paw hair regularly to avoid painful matting. Simply comb hair out, especially from between the toes, and trim even with the pads.

3. Clean In Between: Foreign objects can become lodged in your dog’s pads. Check regularly between toes for foxtails, pebbles, small bits of broken glass and other debris. These pesky items can usually be removed with a pair of tweezers.

4. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize: A dog’s pads can become cracked and dry. Ask your veterinarian for a good pad moisturizer and use as directed. Avoid human hand moisturizer, as this can soften the pads and lead to injury.

5. Deep Paw Massage: Similar to giving a human hand massage, a paw massage will relax your dog and promote better circulation. Start by rubbing between the pads on the bottom of the paw, and then rub between each toe. Your dog will be forever grateful for the extra TLC!

6. Slow and Steady: If you’re about to begin a new exercise program with your dog, start off slow. Paws may become sensitive, chaffed or cracked, particularly when starting your dog out on hikes and runs.

7. Apply First Aid: It’s not unusual for dogs to suffer cuts or other wounds from accidentally stepping on glass, debris or other objects. Wounds that are smaller than a half inch in diameter can be cleaned with an antibacterial wash and wrapped with a light bandage. For deeper paw cuts, see the vet for treatment.

8. Summertime Sores: Imagine stepping barefoot onto hot pavement. Ouch! It is important to remember your dog’s paws feel heat extremes, too. To prevent burns and blisters, avoid walking your dog on hot pavement or sand. Signs include blisters, loose flaps of skin and red, ulcerated patches. For minor burns, apply antibacterial wash and cover the paw with a loose bandage. For serious burns, visit your vet immediately.

9. Wintertime Blues: Winter is hard on everyone’s skin, even your dog’s! Bitter cold can cause chapping and cracking. Rock salt and chemical ice melters can cause sores, infection and blistering. Toxic chemicals can also be ingested by your dog when he licks his paws. After outdoor walks, wash your dog’s paws in warm water to rinse away salt and chemicals. You may wish to apply Vaseline, a great salt barrier, to the foot pads before each walk—or make sure your dog wears doggie booties.

10. Practice Prevention: To reduce the risk of injury, keep your home and yard clear of pointy bits and pieces. Be conscious to avoid hazards such as broken glass and other debris when walking your dog. And keep this simple tip in mind—if you wouldn’t like to walk on it barefoot, neither will your dog!

Labor Day Dangers and Pet Safety : 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 125

Labor Day Dangers and Pet SafetyLabor Day is almost here, and what better way to spend your last summer party than with your pooch? Good food, friends, and fun are all essential for Labor Day celebrations, but is your dog prepared for the festivities? Here is a list of dangers for your dog to avoid during this Labor Day to ensure he/she stays healthy and happy all weekend long.

1. Heat stroke – Hydration is crucial for dogs. Did you know a dog can overheat in just a matter of minutes? If your dog has a heavy coat, he or she is more susceptible to heat stroke. Consistently monitor body temperature and be able to notice anything out the ordinary. Symptoms of heat stroke are panting heavily, a rapid pulse, glazed eyes, a deep red or purple tongue, vomiting, sticky, thick saliva, lethargy, or any unsteadiness or staggering. Heat exhaustion, stress, or stroke is extremely serious and can be fatal. Remember–NEVER leave your pet alone in the car even for a few minutes. This is the most common cause of heat stroke.

2. Paw burns – Have you ever walked on a scorching patio or beach without sandals? Imagine how your pooch feels this Labor Day when your porch is so hot you could cook an egg on it. Make sure there is a shady place near the party for your dog to hang out. Also, be careful while grilling. A hot grill plus a curious dog can lead to disaster. We recommend putting your pooch inside when the grill is on, but if you insist, watch him or her closely. If you see him get burned, or any signs that he did (limping, licking his paws, cracked or blistering skin or pads), apply a cold, wet compress, clean the area with pet-safe ointment or aloe vera, and wrap with gauze.

3. Dogs get sunburned too! – Contrary to popular belief, your dog can get sunburned and needs protection. Hairless, light skinned, light colored, shaved, or pink-nosed pups are especially in danger of being burned. We recommend doing one of two things for pet sun protection. Pick up a non-toxic, fragrance free doggie sunscreen like Vet’s Best Sun Relief spray; or, another option is baby sunscreen. A lotion works best with heavy coated dogs since you can rub it through the coat to the skin. Essential areas are the ears, bridge of the nose, nose, and the underside of his body.

4. Swimming time – If your dog loves to swim, this section is for you. Most of us love to enjoy the water during Labor Day weekend, and your pooch probably does too. If he isn’t a good swimmer, a doggie life preserver would be a good idea. Never leave a dog unattended when swimming. Also, don’t let him drink pool or ocean water. Pool water contains chlorine and the ocean contains salt, both of which can be harmful and can dehydrate your pet. Make sure you have fresh water available at all times.

5. Human foods are not for pets – Who doesn’t like barbequed food? But it’s not for dogs, and you must resist the urge to give them a treat from the grill. If you’re having a big Labor Day party, you might want to consider putting up a sign for your guests that says “Please do not feed the pets.” Some foods are toxic to dogs, such as onions, grapes, mushrooms, avocados, lunch meat, and more. Plus, dogs have very sensitive tummies. Even the smallest amount of food can upset their stomach and cause diarrhea or vomiting.

6. Traveling by car – Many of us travel to friends or family by car during Labor Day weekend. If you plan to bring your pooch in the car, you might want to consider a few things. If your dog has never traveled by car before, get him accustomed prior to travel. Making him feel comfortable will significantly reduce car sickness. Also, a dog restraint (doggy seat belt) is always recommended. This will help keep the dog from being a distraction to the driver, as well as keeping him safe.

The long Labor Day weekend is meant to be enjoyed by both humans and dogs. Be prepared, keep your canine safe, and don’t let one of these dangers for your dog put a damper on your festivities.
