Beating The Cold!

Beating The Winter Doldrums!

Don't get me wrong, we love the snow!!

But what do you do when it stops snowing?  You pout... Because it's cold, wet, icy, did I mention some freezing rain?  Not warm enough to melt the snow, just cold enough to make it prickly on the skin and crunchy.

That is not snow good for playing in, and when mom is nothing but boring, sewing baby stuffs the dog's get a bit restless.

Bring on Chewy!

This month they sent us Ziwi Venison Shanks from New Zealand!!

What a great treat to keep the pups busy! These treats were a lot of fun and lasted my power chewers about 30 min which is really great in our house.

The product itself is a Dried Venison Shank Bone, wrapped in Beef Esophagus from New Zealand ranch raised deer and beef.

You Can see the shank on the inside of the wrap.

These treats were virtually scentless, I had to really stick my human nose close to smell anything. And they didn't get stinkier (unlike bully sticks) when the dogs were chewing on them. I also liked that their was no mess!  They didn't get my carpet sticky/gunky, and the dogs really enjoyed them.

These are definitely going on our list of favorite treats!

Thank you Chewy!

Meet Me Under the Mistletoe!

Fresh Kisses!
"We were sent Merrick Fresh Kisses 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." 

We're getting into the Christmas spirit over here! While it should be mentioned that mistletoe is toxic and we don't allow it in the house, we still like to pretend and of course not be left out of puppy kisses.

Step one to a fresh kiss - clean that mouth!

We received Merrick "Fresh Kisses" in size small, which is actually my preference. I have gotten these treats in the past but with power chewers like Dante and Ziva it doesn't seem to matter big or little they are devoured in about 10 seconds. So for us the size small actually lasts longer and I hand them out like treats.

According to Merrick, the unique shape of these treats makes it so that as they break apart, they in turn clean between your dog's teeth. I'm not so sure about that claim, however I definitely noticed an immediate freshness of breath.  Ziva especially has bad breath for some reason, we've had her checked out by our vet who says her teeth look good. She is due for a cleaning but I just haven't gotten around to scheduling that yet (we have a wonderful company that does drug free cleanings that we love!).

"Can I has it now please?"

What we loved?
Made in the USA without corn/soy no artificial ingredients/colors or preservatives.

These treats smell great! Even to me! They are minty fresh and the dogs go nuts when I open the bag.

Thanks to the shape these treats didn't crumble in the bag, they were easy to handle and didn't leave any bad smells or oils on your hands.

I also love that the bag reseals! 

What have we noticed?
I've been handing these treats out consistently about once a week and I have definitely noticed an improvement in Ziva's breath. She's absolutely kissable now! And Dante who had no bad breath to begin with is even more irresistibly smoochable.

Thank you

Stella & Chewy's Freeze Dried Beef Hearts!

Stella & Chewy's 
Freeze-Dried Beef Hearts!
"We were sent Stella & Chewy's 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."

This month Chewy sent us some new treats to try with the dogs, and being that we were having Thanksgiving at my mom's house I thought it would be fun to save them and take the treats with us so the dogs would have something special on Thanksgiving.

But alas, we have some bad news about this treat....

But first, take a good look at this face. This is Belle, she doesn't often make appearances on the Dz Dog blog but she is definitely more dog than cat.  She likes to play fetch with things like string, and fuzzy treat balls I pick up for her (and she brings them back). She's super social, very snuggly - in fact she sleeps on top of me every night! She is vocal, easy to handle, loves to be brushed, and she is a little bit of a mischief maker.

Turns out she wanted the treats for herself.

That's our best guess anyways.

I came home, the bag had been knocked off of the shelf. Clearly scratched and clawed by none other than a cat...and then demolished into teensy tinsy little shreds by - none other than the dogs.

Did they like them?

Evidence says that they were IRRESISTIBLE!

What did I like about them? Apparently these treats treat your pets for you! No more having to hand out treats.  Hahahahahaha!  Not handling them, my hands didn't get dirty, and I didn't have to smell anything which is nice since being pregnant I'm super sensitive to odors right now.

And they only had one ingredient; Beef Heart.

Thank you for the treats! 
The four legged animals of the house were big fans!
My apologies, silly me didn't think to take a picture of the demolished bag.

Trick or Treat!!

Trick or Treat
Castor & Pollux Grain Free
Grass-Fed Lamb, Carrot, & Apple Stew!

"We were sent Castor & Pollux 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."

This year our howl-o-ween was a little different, last year was our first year in our new house and we realized that living in the country means we no longer have any trick or treaters! I find this to be a bit of a bummer because I always loved seeing the little kids in their cute costumes and we used it as a training exercise for the pups in regards to the doorbell. 

Since the kiddos don't come all the way out where we live we ended up just staying home and treating ourselves. I pretty much blame it all on the new arrival.... Chocolate for mama? Yep, baby gets what baby wants! Apple cider for mama? Yep, baby gets what baby wants!  We should find out gender at my next appointment!

Anywho..back to our fun treats.

This year we stayed in and the dogs who were thoroughly worn out from playing with their puppy cousin, were happy to oblige and just enjoy being spoiled.

Trick or Treat! Smell my...stew?

Castor & Pollux Grain Free Grass-Fed Lamb, Carrot & Apple Stew, smells great! Completely unoffensive to human noses whilst being completely tempting for nearby canines.

I love that I can recognize most of the ingredients right off the bat without having to look them all up, and the first two ingredients are lamb, and beef broth.

Other great things about this food?
  • No artificial ingredients
  • Grass fed lamb raised without hormones or antibiotics
  • NO grain, corn, soy, wheat or gluten

Thank you Chewy for the great treat this Howl-O-Ween!!!  

"For me?"
Dante and Ziva didn't even have to work for it this year, unless of course you count playing with their puppy cousin.
