BestBullySticks: A Look Back at 2011

BestBullySticks is an online only retail store that specializes in natural and healthy dog and cat products.  Our name represents our main stay product “Bully Sticks”, but we have over 1000 different products that provide for a healthy pet lifestyle.

Before we move into an exciting 2012 new year, it is always nice to reflect on the best of the last year.

So in keeping with an age old tradition lets look back at some of the highlights for BestBullySticks in 2011.

Best Bully Sticks Building- Richmond VaBest Bully Sticks moved its corporate headquarters and warehouse in September to a newer location in Richmond, VA.
The 2021 Admiral St location provides us with more effective space and the ability to process our customers orders more efficiently.

 

 

Throughout 2011 as well as in years past, we have been able to donate to Dog Rescue / Charity Organizations throughout the country.  You can see a list here.  We also are providing for our local Richmond, VA organizations through sponsorships and events with the RichmondSPCA, Fetch A Cure, Ring Dog Rescue and Richmond Animal League.

We have  opened up a Military Discount program to give back to our servicemen, servicewomen, and veterans. You can see more here.

We have expanded our Charity efforts to help promote organizations and give them the change to get much needed dog can cat supplies.

We have added many new products and opened up a Deal of The Week for deep discount items.  These deals move fast and are while supplies last, but are always a Deep Deep Discount!! You can find the deals of the week on the home page of our website.

But most of all in 2011, has been the interaction with our Loyal Customers.  Our Brand Ambassadors who have enjoyed our products, spread the word about our company and have made “work” not seem like work at all.  We appreciate and value your support and continue to thrive to improve our products, customer service, and your overall experience with BestBullySticks.

Happy New Year to all our current and future customers!!

Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed: Afghan Hound

Afghan Hound

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. We are excited to spotlight the Afghan Hound.

Height: 24-28 inches (Male: 26-28 inches tall, Female: 24-26 inches tall)

Weight: Male 60-64 lb., Female: 58-62 lb.

Coat: The long, fine hair of the Afghan hound is shiny and silky to the touch. Though it is fine, Afghans have a thick covering of fur and many describe the texture as very similar to human hair.

Color: Fawn,Gold,Brindle,White,Red,Cream,Blue,Gray,and Tricolor

Appearance: Afghan Hounds are “The Aristocrat” of the dog world, carrying themselves with dignity and poise at all times. They are tall and lean, with long, narrow heads, high hipbones, long curling tails and a silky topknot that are unique to the breed. Their long, flowing hair covers their entire body, except for the face, and is truly a sight to behold when properly groomed. Afghans have almond-shaped eyes, which the AKC states, “gaze into the distance as if in memory of ages past.” This breed comes in just about any color of the canine rainbow, so dark colored Afghans are just as common as light colored Afghans.

Temperament: Despite his glamorous reputation, the Afghan hound is a hunter at heart, bred to chase down game over rugged terrain. While he maintains his regal bearings inside, he needs a daily chance to stretch his legs in a safe area. His worst trait is a reluctance to come when called. He will chase small animals outside; inside, he will coexist peacefully. The Afghan Hound is gentle with children and described by some as ‘catlike’. He is independent yet sensitive and not overly demonstrative. He can be reserved with strangers; some can be timid. He has a clownish side.

Afghan Hounds are very loving, affectionate and sweet-tempered dogs. They are very responsive to calm talking and commands. They carry themselves very elegantly and with grace. Though they are somewhat aloof, they are a bit standoffish with strangers.  They crave affection and attention from their families and can be trained to tolerate children, though they do best with older children. Housebreaking this breed can be an arduous task but it is possible with time and effort put into the dogs.

Health: The Life expectancy for Afghan Hounds is 12 years and 18 years if the dog is taken care of. Major health issues are allergies and cancer. They are hypersensitive to pain. Even simple, common injuries can cause them great discomfort. Afghan hounds are also among the dog breeds most likely to develop chylothorax, a rare condition which causes the thoracic ducts to leak, allowing large quantities of chyle fluid to enter the dog’s chest cavity. This condition commonly results in a lung torsion (in which the dog’s lung twists within the chest cavity, requiring emergency surgery), due to the breed’s typically deep, “barrel”-shaped chest. If not corrected through surgery, chylothorax can ultimately cause fibrosing pleuritis, or a hardening of the organs, due to scar tissue forming around the organs to protect them from the chyle fluid. Chylothorax is not necessarily, but often, fatal.

New Year’s Pet Safety Tips: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 146

New Year's Pet Safety TipsIt’s almost time to ring in the New Year! As we count down to the New Year its time to reflect on the past and look forward to the future. With a little bit of “puparation” you and your pet can look forward to 2012. Because nothing spoils the festivities like a sick or runaway pet.  Here are a few New Year’s Eve pet safety tips to keep your pet out of danger and ensure your pet does not get lost while the ball drops . Let the celebrations begin and the good times roll!

1. Be observant of your animal’s response to loud noises. Thunderstorms and fireworks are the best known causes for pet anxiety, but celebration party favors and popping champagne corks can be just as traumatizing. If you are hosting a New Years Party, make sure your pets are placed in a comfortable area that is separate from the activities. Make sure they have plenty of water and are comfortable. When possible, refrain from keeping them outside, as fireworks and other neighbors celebrating can lead to the same ruckus and worry.

2. Always keep your pet’s tags on. In the case they do get spooked and bolt for an open door or gate, an ID tag will be imperative to getting them home safely.

3. Beware of alcohol! Many pets can be drawn to glasses of beer or liquor that has been left behind after the celebration is over. Consumption of alcohol can be highly dangerous for animals, and even deadly. Make sure to thoroughly clean up the area before you allow your pets to enter. Always keep a close eye on them, and never give them any alcohol as a treat or joke.

4. Be aware of party decorations. Balloons, streamers, party hats or confetti can be unhealthy for an animal if ingested. While decorating for your party, keep the animals in a separate area where they do not have access to the decorations. If they do get into them, consult a veterinarian immediately.

Everyone at Best Bully Sticks wishes you and your pet a very happy and healthy 2012!

Top 10 Pet Owner New Years Resolution : 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 145

Top 10 Pet Owner New Years ResolutionThe New Year’s are all about looking back at the past. But most importantly looking forward to the future and resolving to follow through on changes in our lives. So, while I was making my own 2012 New Year’s Resolution it got me thinking about the health, well being & happiness of my two adorable pugs Sushi & Espy.

We sat at the dinner table reflecting and pondering the question “How can we be better dog owners in 2012?”  Here are some wonderful realistic & easy top 10 New Year’s resolutions compliments of our paw pals at Trupanion. Thanks for helping pet owners set realistic 2012 resolution goals. Sushi & Espy send New Year’s wags your way!

Top 10 New Year’s Resolutions for Pet Owners by Trupanion

Every year, we go through the same motions of planning New Years resolutions for ourselves: lose weight, eat healthy, travel, and spend more time with friends and family. However, what many people don’t realize is that their pets may need some goals set for them as well!

There are many lifestyle changes you can make to ensure a happier and healthier life for your pet. Try to work some of these resolutions into your plans:

  1. Train your pet. This year, teach your pet a new trick or two. Many pets enjoy mental challenges to give their brain some exercise, plus it’s good bonding time for you and your pet.
  2. Slim down that fat dog or cat. Pet obesity is a growing problem that leads to many health issues down the road. These health issues can be potentially expensive and life threatening.
  3. Get your pet into a routine. If you have a new puppy or kitten, practice getting them used to regular feeding times and potty times. This will reduce the frequency of “accidents” if they know when they can expect their next visit to the “bathroom”.
  4. Kick bad habits. If your pet has separation anxiety, check out some of these tips on how to alleviate the problem. If your pet is a beggar at the dinner table, train him to wait in his bed or space until your meal is finished, and stop feeding table scraps altogether.
  5. Make a new pet friend. If your pet is friendly with other pets, introduce him to a new playmate and let them romp around together.
  6. Resolve to get out more. Take your pet on more regular walks, to the park, or just let them roam in the backyard more frequently. The new sites and smells keep them busy and are a real treat.
  7. Play more. Set aside some extra time each day to play with your pet, whether it be throwing a ball, tug-of-war, or dangling a string throughout the house. This is a great way to give them two things they love: toys and your attention.
  8. Give back to the community. Take in a foster pet for a week or volunteer at your local pet shelter to give back to homeless pets.
  9. Clean up clutter. Go through that pile of pet toys and get rid of those that your pet no longer plays with.
  10. Get your pet checked and vaccinated. Be sure your pet is up to date on the latest vaccinations, and flea and heartworm medications. Also schedule your pet’s regular checkups to ensure they are in tip-top shape!

Good luck and Happy New Year furiends!

Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed: Miniature Schnauzer

Miniature Schnauzer

Max & Sam Miniature Schnauzer's alert & ready for a treat (pic by flickr KRO-Media)

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. We are excited to spotlight the Miniature Schnauzer.

Height: 12 to 14 inches (30 to 36 cm)

Weight: female 12 to 18 lbs & male 12 to 20 lbs

Coat: They have a double coat. The exterior fur is wiry and the undercoat is softer. Harsh and wiry when hand stripped, soft and curly when unclipped

Color: Black, salt-and-pepper, black-and-silver and white

Appearance: They Miniature Schnauzer are characterized by a long head with bushy beard, mustache and eyebrows; teeth that meet in a “scissor bite”; oval and dark colored eyes; and v-shaped, natural forward-folding ears. (cropped ears point straight upward and come to a sharp point.) Their tails are naturally thin and short, and may be docked (where permitted). They will also have very straight, rigid front legs, and feet that are short and round (so-called “cat feet”) with thick, black pads

Temperament: Miniature Schnauzer are “alert and spirited, yet obedient to command. They are friendly, intelligent and willing to please and should never be overaggressive or timid. “ Usually easy to train, they tend to be excellent watchdogs, with a good territorial instinct, but more inclined toward vocal notification than attack. They are often guarded towards strangers until the owners of the home welcome the guest, upon which they are typically very friendly to them; unlike some of their terrier cousins, they are not typically aggressive. However, they will express themselves vocally, and may bark to greet their owner, or to express joy, excitement, or displeasure.

Proper socialization with other dogs and people is important. The breed is generally good with children, but as with any dog, play with small children should be supervised. They are highly playful dogs, and if not given the outlet required for their energy they can become bored and invent their own “fun.” Schnauzers have a “high prey drive” (appropriate for a ratting dog), which means they may attack other small pets such as birds, snakes, and rodents. Many will also attack cats, but this may be curbed with training, or if the dog is raised with cats.

Health: The average lifespan of this breed is between 12-15 years. While generally a healthy breed, Miniature Schnauzers may suffer health problems associated with high fat levels. Such problems include hyperlipidemia, which may increase the possibility of pancreatitis, though either may form independently. Other issues which may affect this breed are diabetes, bladder stones and eye problems. Feeding the dog low- or non-fatty and unsweetened foods may help avoid these problems.. Miniature Schnauzers are also prone to comedone syndrome, a condition that produces pus filled bumps, usually on their backs, which can be treated with a variety of protocols.  Miniature Schnauzers should have their ears dried after swimming due to a risk of infection, especially those with uncropped ears; ear examinations should be part of the regular annual check up.

Do You Know What Pet Toxins & Poisons Are In Your Home? : 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 144

Do You Know What Pet Toxins & Poisons Are In Your Home?There is a growing pet epidemic on the raise. What is it you say? Each year thousands of dogs and cats suffer from accidental poisoning from the ingestion of household cleaners, plants, medications, common foods and pesticides. There is a lot of truth to the proverb “curiosity killed the cat” but we can’t forget that dogs often fall victim.

Understanding your pets health risk and dangers comes with the territory of being a responsible owner & parent of our furry citizens. Playing  a crucial role in helping you  provide your pet with a safe home to grow, fetch, sleep & play.

So what are the most common top pet toxins to BE-WARE of?

1. Acteminophen can be found in Tylenol. Although great pain reliever & fever reducer for humans if ingested is lethal to pets. It only takes 1 pill to kill a cat and can cause kidney & liver failure in dogs.

2. Ibuprofen common brands include Advil, Midol, Motrin.

3. Plants are beautiful but can be poisonous & deadly if ingested by your pet. Here are a list of plants to avoid:

*Amaryllis
*Azaleas

*Daffodils
*Easter Cacti
*Holly
*Hyacinths
*Mistletoe
*Mulch with Cocoa beans

*Poinsettias
*Sago Palm

Remember that your pet is not invincible and can become seriously ill & die from the ingest of these household hazards. Many of them lurk under kitchen cabinets, in garages, driveway, backyards, trash cans  and pose as beautiful floral centerpieces. Here are a few tips to help in the prevention of accidental poisoning and keep your inquisitive pet safe & toxic-free.

1. Bag & Cover it! Use covered trash cans to prevent access to empty cleaning bottles, table scraps, leftover foods, disposed medications.

2. Not a Pet Zone. Keep pets out of garages & sheds and away from oil and anti-freeze leaks. Pets will be tempted by the spilled sweet smelling scent of anti-freeze in your garage, driveway, on the street or in parking lots.

3. Store cleaners away safely out of paws reach. Keeping clean house is important for the health & well being of your family. So be careful where you store potentially hazardous cleaning products. You see, pets are sneaky & quite resourceful and will use their smarts to gain access to your cleaning stash found in lower cabinets or empty bottles in trash cans.  If storing your cleaners under your cabinets make sure it is under lock and key. Better yet, opt for more eco-friendly, safe & toxic free household cleaning alternatives (Greenworks, Method, Mrs. Meyers, 7th Generations)

4. Ain’t no Watering Hole! During Christmas, cover tree water so pets are not tempted to take a sip. You see pine needles are poisonous to dogs & cats.

As always, if you suspect your beloved pet have ingested a poison. Don’t wait, please seek vet emergency help quickly and in a timely manner. Please note the amount ingested and contact your veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435.
