This was a big hit this month with the Dz Dogs! The first ingredient being pork, and containing no chicken by-products, no corn/wheat/or soy, no artificial colors or flavors they loved it. 

Although we usually stick to freeze dried treats with fewer ingredients this was a fun goody to add into the mix, kind of like a doggy appropriate candy bar. These treats smelled wonderful, broke apart easily into smaller bites, and Dante was more than happy to come running when called knowing that they were in my pocket. 

The biggest problem? 

I don't always remember to put them in my pocket...

Want to know what I'm up against?

"Oh, hello deer..." 

Now don't think I'm complaining, it's fun having nature right in the backyard. Kind of like my very own National Geographic channel.  We've been working on the dogs not chasing the wildlife, deer they are pretty good at just looking. They get really excited though when the deer come up to the windows of the house, that's still a bit much for them.

Turkeys on the other hand? When we first moved to the country we called it "bowling for turkeys." Not our idea, we definitely discourage it, but it was hilarious the couple times it happened.

Currently we have three hens hanging around the backyard each with her own brood of 10 or more babies. The dogs are definitely getting better, we haven't had a single chasing incident all spring! But it's a challenge and treats are a MUST in order to keep their attention.

Thank you Chewy!!

All natural coconut and botanical infused double ended doggy chew brushes. Yum!!

Cause who doesn't love a fresh kiss!

"Pucker up buttercup!"

These chewy brushes are supposed to help clean teeth with their crazy wobbly shape, and with the help of their botanical oil infusion they are supposed to help to freshen breath as well as fight tartar/plaque build up.

While that sounds great, we only had four chews to work with so I'm not sure how well they work except the dogs loved them and they were quickly begging for more.

I love the all natural quality of these chews and that they are made in the US. However they were pretty soft and were quickly devoured so I'm not sure how much cleaning actually happened. If you have a small dog I think these would be perfect!  But being a large dog household I don't think they were quite hard enough to be truly effective.

Thank you Chewy!!

Silver Paw Pet Tags

Silver Paw Tags
Tough Tags for Adventure Dogs!

"We were sent Silver Paw Tags in exchange for an honest review. Dz Dogs only supports products that we feel are relevant to our readers. This blog contains NO affiliate links, all thoughts and opinions are our own."

Look what we received in the mail! Too small to be a dog treat...kind of looks like a jewelry bag. And just in time for Ziva's birthday!

When we were contacted by Silver Paws to test out their beautiful dog tags we jumped at the chance. Look at how beautiful they are!

Made in Maine, USA and started in 2010 - Silver Paw Pet Tags was inspired by two adventure dogs named Ruby and Jet who suffered from the same problem we suffer from. A sense of style and a rough and tumble high adventure lifestyle which sadly many tags don't hold up well to.

Either the contact info wears off, the tag turns black, or the loop wears through and snaps off.

Can you guess whose is whose?
I wish I had an example of the tags we have literally worn through and broken, but sadly when that happens and it has happened a couple times... all I notice is that it's gone when I go to clip a leash onto the collar. Thankfully both Dante and Ziva are micro chipped however I always want them to be able to call home should something happen.

With small, medium, and large tags Silver Paw has many different thick tags with stylish engraved designs to choose from, these definitely won't be wearing out in our lifetime! They are very deeply engraved in the front with their designs, and back with your contact information, and are guaranteed to stay readable for life.  

We ended up going with the size "medium" tags for both Dante and Ziva and they look great.

Made with yacht grade stainless steel due to it's unsurpassed hardness and non corrosive qualities these tags will stand up to anything you want to put them through including saltwater without dulling or changing in color.

All necessities in our case! The weather hasn't been quite warm enough to go swimming but it's definitely on the list, these tags claim to be beach/swamp/and field tested so we'll be putting them to the test on our upcoming summer adventures. We've already gone hiking and I like that they are quiet and don't clink around like some tags do. And they have been super easy to clean, I just rinse them under warm water when I clean Dante and Ziva's collars.

Speaking of which, I recently went to Boston to cheer on my mama who was running the Boston Marathon. She did great, which is awesome because if you were watching the news you would have seen it was the worst weather in about 20 years worth of the marathon. Constant 25 mph winds, with 40 mph gusts.. YIKES.  Anyways I came back with souvenirs for the pups! New collars, which of course needed new tags. And on top of that....

Guess who is five years old now?!

Happy Birthday Ziva!

I love how stylish and beautiful these tags are, which makes sense because the owner of Silver Paws got her start in jewelry before getting into engraving pet tags.

Ziva's Lotus Flower tag.
Go girl go! We recently tried out a new hiking spot which was awesome.

Thank you Silver Paw Tags! These are definitely our new favorite tags!

Stewart Raw Naturals

Stewart Raw Naturals
Fresh To Home Lamb Recipe.

"We were sent Stewart Raw Naturals from in exchange for an honest review. Dz Dogs only supports products that we feel are relevant to our readers. This blog contains NO affiliate links, all thoughts and opinions are our own."

Freeze dried food is one of our most favorite things!! We are always happy to try different brands, some brands are 100% freeze dried protein that may be mixed with freeze dried veggies and or fruits, and some like Stewart Raw Naturals is actually a mix of ingredients that is blended together and then freeze dried to provide a complete and balance meal.

One of the reasons we don't feed raw...among many reasons (we'll save that for another time) is you have to make sure your dog is getting all of the proper nutrients in their diet. This means researching all of your ingredients and knowing their nutritional breakdown and then tayloring it to your dogs diet.   No thank you. I don't have time for that. However freeze dried raw makes things a lot easier.
