Dogs ask for nothing more than to be loved, cared for, played with, and fed. There are a lot of ways to make dogs happy.
One of the ways we make dogs happy at Fidose of Reality is through the fundraising arm of our blog, which is Wigglebutt Warriors. To date, we’ve hosted three gala fundraisers and have raised close to $80,000 for dog rescue groups. We’ve had Wigglebutt Wedding, Wigglebutts Go Hollywoof, and most recently, Wigglebutts Uncorked at America’s Oldest Winery, Brotherhood.
Without the sponsors of the events, none of it would be possible. If you love doting on your dog and spoiling him or her with goodies along with treating yourself, here are 13 items that make dogs happy. Each of these 13 were a sponsor of Wigglebutts Uncorked. Jump down after the items for a special giveaway of a $100 Amazon gift card to spend on getting some of these goodies!!!
Make a homemade, all natural, fresh meal for your dog by adding this grain-free dog food mix to a protein source. Even this self-admitted bad cook is able to easily prepare this mixture: You add warm water, let it set for up to 10 minutes, and your dog gets fresh veggies in his or her meal. I supplement with this, and they are a big hit!
Nutter Bites, Carob Fudge Cookies, and Bow Wow Snicker Doodles are but a few of the tasty treats for dogs at Paws Barkery. Paws Barkery Inc., is a line of all natural dog treats, made with Love in the USA. Oh, and my dog looks at me sort of funny when I nibble on these treats, too: They are THAT good!
Natural Paws Products
If your dog has itchy skin, there’s a Natural Paws solution for that. Always be sure to determine what the nature of your dog’s itching is in addition to providing soothing treatment.
Ditch The Itch is made without the use of steroids or chemicals. Horvath says, “Simply shake it up, spray it wherever your dog is itchy, and give your dog a wink, because you know he’s about to breathe a sigh of relief. Use as often as needed, knowing that like all of our products, Ditch the Itch contains only organic plant ingredients which are safe if licked.”
