Pampered Pooches: Expensive Dog Excessories

 There’s a certain satisfaction in eating at a nice dining room table. It makes you feel sophisticated, cultured, and human. My dog eats out of a simple plastic bowl I picked up at the local pet store for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that he’s a dog. I can understand having a dog bowl that’s raised a bit for taller dogs that have a hard time really leaning down as they get older, but spending $129 on said dog bowl seems a bit…excessive.  Your dog certainly isn’t going to notice the difference, and when it really comes down to it, it’s not like you’re placing filet mignon in there for them either.  I know we like to personify our pets, but having their eating arrangements outstrip our own seems more like putting them in the Trump Towers while we’re scraping by in a studio apartment.

 

Dog CarrierYour Dog Travels Better Than You Do

Not that I’ve ever flown first class, but even when I’m flying in the back of the plane, I expect a certain level of service (at least I used to).  With that in mind, it confuses me that some people would spend more on a carrier for their dog than most of us spend on plane tickets…to Europe.  $690 might seem a bit excessive for a dog carrier to you, but you have to remember that this particular one is made from leather, has numerous flaps for their dog treats, and is stylish beyond measure.  This bag screams “my dog lives better than I do” to anybody that sees the two of you together.  Sure you’re driving around in a minivan that’s older than your kids, but as far as your dog is concerned, he’s in a Bentley the entire time.

 

Dog Mink CoatYour Dog Dresses Better Than You Do

I want my dog to look good.  This usually means regular grooming, getting his nails clipped, and brushing him.  This does not include buying my dog a mink coat.  Yes…you read that correctly.  People have been known to buy their dogs mink coats.  I don’t own a mink coat.  I don’t even own anything approaching a mink coat in my closet.  The idea of a mink coat for dogs is strange since dogs are, at least typically, covered in fur.  And yet, for only $70, you too can get your dog a pink mink coat that will confirm that you love your dog more than you love yourself.

Like I’ve said, we all love to pamper our dogs, but there comes a certain point when all of us have to be careful about crossing over into excess.  Dogs don’t care about mink coats and $300 beds.They want bully sticks, lamb treats for dogs, and somebody to scratch their bellies.  Keep that in mind the next time you see that diamond encrusted dog collar that you’ve been wanting to buy your dog.

Jumbo Cow Ears

Jumbo Cow Ears 

We are pleased to announce the launch of Jumbo Cow Ears on Best Bully Sticks.  These cow ears are HUGE and are about twice the size of a regular cow ear.  Like our typical cow ears, these ears are all natural and low in fat.  These are non-staining and will last a while for both large and small dogs.

Make sure to check out our pig ears, and other dog chews.  We are proud to be steadily building the internet’s largest selection of all natural dog chews and treats!

Sweet Potato Dog Treats

Sweet Potato Dog Treats

We wanted to address a common questions concerning our Sweet Potato treats for dogs. We sell Sam’s Yam’s sweet potato treats, a duck and sweet potato treat, and a chicken and sweet potato dog treat. Sometimes on pieces of sweet potato a bright white substance can be clearly seen by the eye. This is not something to be alarmed with as it is just the sugars inside the sweet potato coming to the surface. This is very common and natural and is something that is typically prized because
it means that the sweet potato is actually sweeter!

Sweet potato, is a very potent vegetable and is extremely high in all types of vitamins and minerals. Please check out our other treats and chews, as we are committed to offering a complete selection of natural chews and treats for dogs!

Lamb Tripe Chips

Lamb Tripe Chips

This is the second release in our all natural lamb product release and we hope it lives up to the hype! We are proud to be the ONLY place to get these all natural lamb tripe chips. They are approximately 3×5″ pieces of lamb tripe that have been dried to make them into the perfect dog treat/chew. The chips are white/off-white in color and would be a great treat for dogs over 30 lbs. and a chew for dogs under 30 lbs.

Tripe is an excellent source of protein, omega 3’s & 6’s, and is also high in many other vitamins and minerals. Those of you who feed raw probably already know tripe well. Tripe given on a regular basis will also improve a dog’s skin and coat! These chips are from USDA approved free range lamb and are made in the United States. They are gently washed in water to get some of the stomach debris off of them, which is the difference between our tripe chips and typical green tripe.  This also causes them to be low in odor….which is something that is unique to our tripe chips.

As with our other all natural lamb products, these are single ingredient and have no preservatives or chemicals added to them whatsoever. Make sure to give these and the lamb weasands a try, and stay tuned for the next lamb product release which will be in less than one week! Also, be sure to check out our growing selection of all natural dog treats and dog chews.

Greatest American Dog 5

Greatest American Dog 5

If episode 4 was like “Top Model” we would say that the episode 5 show was like “Dancing with the Stars”….In this episode the quick challenge was to walk on a plank over some mud which Teresa and Leroy ended up winning. Instead of keeping the “dog bone suite” they gracefully gave it over to Bill and Star (Bill was starting to get homesick). As part of her win she also passed on the ability to train with a choreographer over to Bill and Star. We thought Bill had a great routine and it was very nice of Teresa to help him out and be a team player.

For the best in show challenge the remaining contestants had to pick a genre of music to dance with their dog to. The winner of this challenge was Laurie and her Maltese Andrew. This came as no surprise to us because in our opinion, Laurie and Andrew have an excellent partnership. The bottom three for the week were Travis/Presley, Laura/Preston, and Brandi/Beacon. Brandi and Beacon ended up getting voted off and quite frankly we think it will reduce the stress level in the house.

As things begin to get closer to the end, it is our opinion that the top three pairs will be Bill/Star, Laurie/Andrew, and JD/Galaxy.

All Natural Lamb Treats and Chews

All Natural Lamb Treats and Chews

As most of you already know, we recently began launching our line of all natural lamb treats and chews. These chews are great for so many different reasons:

  1. They are all single ingredient treats and chews
  2. They are all made in the USA at a human grade lamb facility
  3. Many of them are organ based (packed with nutrition and a compliment to raw feeding)
  4. They are unique and hypo-allergenic
  5. Offer even more flexibility when choosing a treat or chew
  6. Some are naturally high in Glucosamine and Chondroitin

The first item that we have launched are the lamb weasands. Weasands are the esophagus or “gullet” of the lamb and are naturally high in glucosamine (great for hips and joints)! They are a perfect chew for dogs under 30 lbs. and are more of a chew/treat for dogs over 30 lbs. They are about an inch wide and 6-8″ in length and are guaranteed to not only be a healthy choice, but a choice your dogs will go wild for. Stay tuned for the remaining lamb products as each week we will launch a new one until we are finished!

As always, make sure to check out the rest of our growing catalog of all natural dog chews and treats; and of course thank you for your business!

Greatest American Dog 4

Greatest American Dog 4

The quick challenge for this week was entitled “Take it or Leave it”, during the challenge the owners had to predict whether their dogs were going to take an item or leave the item where it was originally placed.  The items ranged from steak to butter and it was interesting to see who “knew” what their dog would do.  In the end, JD and Galaxy came out of top!

For the rest of the show, owners were given words at random that they had to get their dog to portray during a photo shoot.  The words went from angry to loving.  JD also won this challenge as Galaxy was picked for the best picture.  Galaxy had the word “sneaky”, and in our opinion, did an excellent job with the word!  For her talent she is having that picture featured in an upcoming issue of the Dog Fancy magazine.

I must say that we were disappointed with this episode mainly because Tillman and Ron were voted off of the show.  I thought that they were an awesome team, and we will surely miss him going forward.  Tillman was the farting, burping, skateboarding, and surfing Bull Dog.    They had the word “lazy” during the photo shoot, and the judges just felt that the picture wasn’t that great.  Brandi and Beacon and Teresa and Leroy rounded out the bottom three for the show this week.  I think that the general consensus in the house is that everyone is hoping that Brandi and Beacon are next to go.

We will continue to keep you up to date, and as always make sure to check out our ever growing catalog of all natural dog chews, treats, and bully sticks!

Top Ten Pet Friendly US Cities

Just because the travel season is just about over doesn’t mean that you should already be looking ahead to your next family vacation, and that includes your four legged family members.  Picking places that will welcome your dog with arms as open as those that welcome you can be tricky, so here’s a list of ten of the top pet friendly cities in the United States.

 

San Diego, California

Thanks to the warm climate, this is a year round playground for pets and pet lovers.  With locations like the Otay Ranch Town Shopping Center, which has an off-leash park as part of the facility, and a number of pet friendly restaurants like Nine-Ten Restaurant and Bar, this is the ideal location for the pet lover with travel on their mind.

 

Long Beach, California

Home to the Most Beautiful Bulldog Competition, Easter and Howl o’ween parades, and the only off-leash dog park in LA County.  With restaurants and bars that cater to both people and their dogs, this is a great spot to enjoy a refreshing lunch while your dog enjoys dog treats right next to you.

 

Carmel, California

Home to the pet friendly Cypress Inn on

Lincoln Street

(co-owned by the legendary Doris Day), this city is great for the active pet family as it features numerous walking tours to enjoy the towns scenic charms.

 

Portland, Oregon

Home to The Lucky Labrador Brewing Company, this brewery is the perfect place for you to take the edge off after a long day of travel with one of their dog-inspired brews while your dog relaxes beside you.  If you need something to wake you up instead, the Iron Mutt Coffee Company is perfect for getting your caffeine fix while your dog enjoys either a Himalayan Dog Chew from you, or a free dog biscuit from the employees.

 

Seattle, Washington

When staying in Seattle, the Pensione Nichols Bed and Breakfast should be first on your list thanks to their pet-friendly standards and great location.  From there it’s easy to enjoy many of Seattle‘s pet-friendly amenities, especially since well-behaved dogs are allowed on all of Seattle‘s buses and trains.  Couple that with numerous eateries that welcome well-behaved pets and it’s easy to see why Seattle is one of the top pet-friendly cities in the country.

 

Chicago, Illinois

While the Cubs might not be winning the World Series just yet, the White Sox do offer a Dog Day baseball game every spring.  Numerous upscale hotels such as the Hotel Burnham and Hotel Monaco welcome dogs of all sizes, and Lake Michigan offers more than 18 miles of paved trails that are great for exercising both you and your dog.  At the end of the day, swing by Cucina’s on either N. Sedgwick or W. Diversey where your dog will be served a complimentary bowl of pasta before you give him a bully stick to really enjoy.

 

New York City, New York

Many of the most upscale and fashionable hotels in this city open their doors to dogs, including the Soho Grand Hotel and the Muse Hotel.  The NYC Dog Walking Tour is a great way to see the city and get your dog some much needed exercise, and of course there’s always a carriage ride through Central Park to really enjoy the sites of the city.

 

Orlando, Florida

When in Orlando, be sure to visit Sam Snead’s, the location where Governor Jeb Bush signed the doggy dining law that allows well-behaved dogs to sit with their owners at outside locations.  Thanks to the location of Disney World and Universal Studios, many hotels in the area are pet friendly and even offer dog-sitting services while you and your family go and enjoy the park.

 

Colorado Springs, Colorado

All about nature and the great outdoors, Colorado Springs is a great place for dogs that love to romp and have fun.  With numerous nature preserves and parks where you can let your dog off the leash and just run and enjoy themselves, it’s easy to forget that Colorado Springs also offers many pet friendly hotels where both you and your dog can be spoiled and pampered.

 

Austin, Texas

Boasting 12 off-leash parks, Austin is a dream come true for both pet owners and the pets themselves.  Whether cooling off in the creek at Bull Creek District Park or taking a tour of the city in horse-drawn carriage, there are plenty of ways for your dog to enjoy themselves while in Austin.  Plenty of restaurants and stores welcome dogs, so be sure to take them out with you when you’re hitting the town and enjoy the sites of this beautiful Texas city with your best four-legged friends.
