    @Aikiou for Smart Pets!

    If your pet eats their kibble way too fast or seems to be bored all the time – Get him/her a game!  The Aikiou feeder is a game that challenges the minds of your cats and dogs! They have different styles that have levels of challenge – It is a LOT of fun to see your pet try to figure it out. My neighbor has 2 cats so I gave him this one to challenge them. They are having  a lot of fun while he is at home I’m sure.Screen Shot 2013-05-08 at 12.29.09 PM

    This next dog one has a spinning wheel and a switch that goes back and forth. Great for hiding bigger treats and is a ton of fun too!  This one I gave away to BIGGIE because he is such a smart pup who loves to eat. He will learn to use his nose playing this game. He is just around 1 so this is perfect for him!

    Last but not least, another neighborhood puppy Pocky was so nice to test out one JR feeder. She is so smart and loves to play with it! Look at that tail.

    NEW Jerky Bars from @Dogswell

    Happy Hips are low glycemic, super premium, functional food and treats for pets!  DOGSWELL  recently launched new packaging recipes for its line of Jerky Bars, a healthy snack that helps maintain eyes, skin and coat. Jacob got a very special package today to try 2 flavors: Salmon & Veggies and Lamb & Veggies – I let him smell both of them for about 2 minutes and then decided not to be a ‘jerk’ and just open it for him already!

    The new Jerky Bars are made with 85% meat and 15 % veggies with added health benefits and ingredients including Flaxseed, Vitamins or Glucosamine and Chondroitin. DOGSWELL products do NOT include any grains, soy or added sugars!

    Fresh flavors include:

    Chicken & Veggies
    Lamb & Veggies
    Salmon & Veggies
    Turkey & Veggies

    Before I even opened the package he knew what was it!  Jacob is a notorious picky eater and will often spit out treats he doesn’t like.


    He has done that in many pet stores. It smells like jerky and is moist and healthy!  A great way to get vitamins into dogs over 5 years old.

    With Jacob turning 8 next month and us living in a 6 storey walk up building – anything that can help his hips are awesome!  

    Delicious and awesome healthy treats.

    We totally love it and give it 5 stars!

    What a morning of dog related news.

    First 26 were rescued from a Florida based dog fighting ring and then another 14 in North Carolina!

    Thank you for the 40 dogs saved this unseasonable warm day!

    A lot of people have asked me why I love dogs and have a ‘pitbull’ type dog when I can have any kind of dog in the world. Being a owner of a bully breed, you get a LOT of grief from people and it takes a special person to own a bully type dog. To me, a dog is a dog is a dog and dogs can be trained to be and act anyway you want if you try hard enough.

    Jacob is not my first dog and I treat him no different than that labs, doberman, collies in my life. Every time you say pitbull someone has a strong reaction (good / bad). Then when I ask them, how many do you personally know and have spent time with – they usually say none.

    A lot of dogs need home and a lot of people need love, I think I will always gravitate towards a bully breed because they need me the most. You have to patient, non judgmental and have an over abundance of respect for animals to experience this kind of love. It is nothing like any other dog owner will experience to you.

    I know my dog LOVES me and we are bonded. He would never leave me, betray me for a cookie or hot dog and there is nothing more important in his day than the minute he sees me. I feel the same about him.

    I love what Peace Love and Pitbulls are doing because people believe what they feel and see and experience. More than what they are TOLD.  So when my friend Karlie sent me over this adorable video of a puppy trying to get on a treadmill, it got me very curious about the site. It doesn’t matter when you met your first pit or how you got to experience them but what matters is you opened your heart enough to let it move you. So check this out, you just might fall in love.

    Easy Walk with @CoLeash

    It is probably accurate to say that 90% of dog products are invented by dog owners who thought:

    Wouldn’t it be nice to have ____________.

    The Co-Leash was founded in 1999 and has achieved many awards over the years. One were most proud of is The Co-leash being used on the military dogs overseas with our troops protecting our freedoms on the front lines.  It is essentially a collar and leash in one so it makes walking your dog or training your dog easier!  Since Jacob really enjoys walking off leash, this is a great tool to have.

    The leash easily extends by a velcro attachment that is perfect for crossing the street.

    It is glow in the dark and also 3M reflective. The cute star patterns make it fun.

    The Coleash Kryptaglow Dog Collar comes in a variety of colors and we will be using ours a lot! The Coleash features a short control leash which neatly wraps around the collar and attaches with strong velcro. Its made with super strong nylon, a Big Dog Buckle for added strength, and wielded D-rings that can be used in conjunction with a regular leash as well.

    It retails for $23.99 and can be found on http://coleash.com
