BBS Product Spotlight: Anxiety Solutions for Your Dog

September means back to school for over 75 million students around the country and over 7 million education personnel. With students and teachers out of the house, quite a few four-legged friends are facing a quieter, less active day-to-day routine than they’ve become accustomed to over the past few months. For those pups who suffer from separation anxiety, this means more than just fewer belly rubs a day. Dogs who experience extreme stress from being left alone or drastic shifts in their daily routine can exhibit physical side effects ranging from excessive chewing, barking and urinating, to more upsetting signs like diarrhea and vomiting. To help these pups deal with change, Best Bully Sticks offers a variety of anxiety solutions for your dog:

Animals Apawthecary Tranquility Blend: Reduce your dog’s stress – and thus your stress – with this glycerine-based herbal relaxation formula by Animal Essentials. Ideal for dogs and cats, this made in the USA pet product contains certified organic extract of skullcap herb for alleviation of nervous tension, valerian root and passion flower for their anti-anxiety properties, and oat flowering tops for additional soothing and relaxation. With a sweet taste and alcohol-free formula, this 1oz bottle contains a big sigh of relief inside.

The Anxiety Wrap: The Anxiety Wrap is a pressure wrap designed to lessen fear and anxiety in dogs through maintained stress-relieving acupressure. The first of its kind on the market, the wrap targets acupressure points on the dog’s body with a light pressure to release a calming effect. Featuring adjustable elastic bands for customization to each individual dog, the wrap relieves stress without inhibiting the dog’s ability to use the bathroom, eat or perform other daily activities. Available in sizes mini to large, and accompanied by a 100% satisfaction guarantee and free online support, the Anxiety Wrap is a great way to relieve anxiety without the use of medication.

Bach Rescue Remedy: Bach’s Rescue Remedy is all-natural stress relief for dogs. Safe and gentle, this alcohol-free formula helps reduce your pup’s tension and restores emotional balance. Recommended by vets worldwide, this soothing remedy includes cherry plum, clematis, impatiens, rock rose and Star of Bethlehem. Available in a 20ml bottle, this made-in-the-USA product is mixed together to help your dog overcome emotional stressors such as separation anxiety, adjusting to new surroundings, and visits to the groomer or vet.

 

For additional help with separation anxiety or during other stressful times, also consider giving your dog an all-natural bully stick to gnaw on for tension relief!

BBS Product Spotlight: Thick Cut USA Pig Ears

As the summer comes to an end, people everywhere are fitting in a few final barbeques. But even as the warm days turn into crisp, cool nights, the beginning of fall is a great time to get together with friends and family and grill out over a fire. But as you enjoy some tasty smoked pork, don’t forget about the four-legged friend down at your feet!

With Best Bully Sticks Thick Cut USA Pig Ears, your dog can enjoy a delicious cookout-worthy snack as well! Sourced from pork right here in the USA, these all-natural dog treats are fully-digestible – making them safer and healthier than table scraps or traditional rawhide chews.

Rawhide, which is not digestible, can cause painful and expensive blockages in a pup’s stomach if swallowed. Similarly, table scraps may also contain choking hazards like bones or pits, or may contain ingredients that are toxic to pets. With our Thick Cut USA Pig Ears, you get a wholesome, single-ingredient dog chew that contains no preservatives, chemicals or additives of any kind!

Oven-baked to perfection, our Thick Cut USA Pig Ears are whole, not cut or sliced. These long-lasting dog chews are a larger treat than our standard USA Pig Ears and offer your pup added entertainment and gnawing time!  Because of their durability, the extra chewing time your dog gets also engages the gums, helps remove tartar and plaque, and contributes to overall better dental hygiene.

So next time there’s some bonding-over-barbecue time, make sure your canine companion is included as well!

Weekly Drool Recipe: Turkey Bacon and Cheese Dog Treats

There are few tastier combinations we can think of than bacon and cheese, so when we came across The Blissful Bakker’s recipe for Turkey Bacon and Cheese Dog Treats, we knew we had to share it with you! In addition to their delicious flavor, turkey bacon and cheese each contain an assortment of beneficial nutrients as well. Cheese, which is high in calcium, vitamins A, B12, quality proteins and amino acids, is great for maintaining strong bones and healthy teeth. Turkey bacon, a lower fat version of pork bacon, is a great source of lean protein and carbs for energy, muscle and tissue health. With this win-win in taste and nutrition, it’s no wonder both cheese and bacon are universally loved by dog and owner alike! Here’s how Rachel at The Blissful Bakker combines the two into a delicious treat your pup is sure to love:

Ingredients: 

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour (plus more if needed)
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 cup cooked turkey bacon, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup milk   

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour and baking powder.
  • Stir in milk, chopped bacon and cheddar cheese until a soft dough forms (you may have to add a little more flour if the dough seems really sticky).
  • Roll out the dough with your hands to make half inch balls (you may want to alter this based on your dog’s size)
  • Place balls on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake for another 10 minutes or until slightly crunchy.
  • Cool and store in an airtight container for 3-5 days or in the freezer for up to one month.

 Note: If your pup has any dietary issues, be sure to consult with your vet before feeding these treats to your furry friend. 

Thanks so much to Rachel (and her pup, Darby!) at The Blissful Bakker for sharing this recipe with us!

Doggy Travel Preparation Tips

Picture this: You’re headed out on a trip, and you think, “Did I get everything?” If you have to question it, chances are, you just might have! Best Bully Sticks knows preparation is everything!

As a professional organizer Bonnie Dewkett knows this, too. Bonnie is a Certified Professional Organizer and dedicates her life to forming “calm from chaos” through organizational systems. It’s not different when she travels with her dog Roxy, which she does often. Here is how she preps for a road trip with her pooch!

“I take my dog everywhere.  Most people take their dog in the car with them once in a while.  My dog is with me most often than not.  She only gets left home when I work with clients in their homes or offices.  And, when it’s going to be a long day she goes to “Grandpa’s Doggie Day Care.”

It’s important to me that Roxy is always comfortable and safe so there are a few things I did to make sure we are safe travelers.

The first thing I did to make travel easily is I designated a bag just for Roxy’s gear.  I keep it ready to go at all times.  It has a travel doggie bowl (plastic collapsible kind), a travel food bag, first aid supplies, a first aid bandana (for instructions), an extra leash, treats and toys. read more…
