We posted a video over the weekend of foster fling, Pix, chewing on one of our Bullibone dental chews and got so many questions. These dental chews are great to help clean teeth and stimulate blood flow to the gums. Kara chews on hers every […]
Something frequently overlooked when thinking about pet health are the products that are used in your home every day. Our human tries to keep an eye on the ingredients in our laundry detergent, dish soap and household cleaning products. A product she has used for years and knows is safe for us is @airscense essential oil air fresheners. They help keep our home smelling awesome, the orange scent is our favorite. Do you have any pet safe household products you recommend?
Have you ever wondered if there are benefits to having more than one dog? Our human has this thing about having two pups and she frequently gets asked, why two? Having two pups can help with activity and socialization, it can also help with separation […]
Today I’m going to show you my three step process to making two ingredient flamingo shaped treats.1. Mix together one cup of your favorite flour (we like chickpea) and one 4 oz container of your favorite baby food (I chose pumpkin). Have your human put […]
One of the most frequent questions we get is “how do you not get tear stains?”. We will tell you our secret but it’s probably not the answer you were hoping for. We like many dogs get tear stains, we tried avoiding certain foods and using special water but nothing got rid of them. The reason you don’t see them is because our main human freqently cleans around our eyes. We have found that once the fur is stained it is very hard (maybe impossible) to un-stain. So she has found that quick freqent cleaning once or twice a day is the best routine for us. For Kara what works best is using a fine tooth comb to pull out any larger pieces and then a quick wipe with a dry paper towel to absorb any liquid. For Riley using a Viva paper towel (they are super soft almost like cloth) to rub around his eyes helps absorb any liquid and break away any larger pieces of gunk. We do not use any water as we have found that just spreads it and makes it worse. This method of “dry” cleaning has worked best for us to keep our eyes looking clean. Do you get tear stains? Have you found anything that works for you?
Riley here coming at you from my pillow fort. Some of you may remember that I was practicing social distancing before it was cool. I used to have really high anxiety in new places and meeting new people. For me my humans found that training was what worked best to build my confidence and decrease my anxiety. They would take me out on adventures and give me lots of positive praise and treats. The trick was to push me a little out of my comfort zone but not too far (it’s a delicate balance). Because of COVID-19 I’ve currently reverted back to my old ways (temporarily). If you don’t enjoy social distancing there are still things you can do to keep busy. Hikes are a great option as long as you stay 6 feet away from other people. You could also do one of the many treat puzzles we love by @nina_ottosson (sold by @amazon , @petco and @outwardhound ) for a mental workout at home. Are you enjoying social distancing or feeling cooped up?
