You guys, I was counting down to today’s giveaways. These products are among the best of the best.
FIVE gifts guaranteed to make your recipient giddy with Christmas cheer!
Another awesome product from ThunderWorks. Seriously, I adore our ThunderLeash for a few reasons. First of all, Cooper is a puller. Big time. Not when we’re walking, but when we jog… he pulls like a maniac, and since I’m still new at this whole jogging thing, it totally messes up my stride and my pace. That, and his regular leash/collar situation caused him to gag and choke. The other HUGE reason why I love this: It fits all three of my guys. Look!
And, if you don’t want to use a harness, like when Cooper goes for a stroll, it works as a regular leash, too. This is one of the coolest things we’ve tried – it’s one of my most favorite products of the year, for sure! $30 from ThunderShirt (AND free shipping!)
Pet Cooler Carrier
You guys got a sneak peek at the Pet Cooler Carrier when Newt was snuggled up after her trip to the vet.
This is one of my favorite innovations. It looks like a typical carrier, and in a lot of the fundamental ways it is. But see that top part? It flips open to reveal a unique chamber that allows you to do a couple things. You can fill it with ice, which helps keep the compartment below cool. Imagine having to take your pet to the vet on a hot day or waiting at an agility trial or driving to go hiking or whatever, you can keep your pet refreshed inside the compartment because the ice cools it, but also fills a little reservoir with a valve that your pet can drink from. If it’s not hot – like you wouldn’t stick ice in there this winter! – you can fit all sorts of things in the top compartment. Since it was Newt’s first time at this vet, John stowed her shot records in there. After the appointment, he stuck her rabies tag in the compartment, so he didn’t have to fumble with anything else as he carried her to and from the car. During the appointment, all the techs and admin folks at the vet’s office were scoping it out and just loved it. The carrier comes with snap-on flaps that can shield your pet – or, as they recommended to us – when your pet is just hanging out like Newt does, you can switch out the front gate for the flap so it’s like a little doggy door. We seriously love it, and Newt does, too! Which is amazing because she HATED her old crate. Also one of my favorite products of the year. $120 from Pet Cooler Carrier
Viva La Dog Spa
I’ll admit: I’m a sucker for cute packaging. So I was sunk when I saw this:
This set of products from Viva La Dog Spa includes everything the pampered pooch needs for a spa day right at home. My personal favorites are the deep conditioner and the Moroccan oil treatment with argan oil – both are PERFECT for Emmett’s super dry, super sensitive skin. I’m not a huge fan of the fragrances, but I know many people who love these for their dogs. The company does something incredibly innovative: Their manufacturing plant is solar powered! How awesome is that?! They source the bottles locally, too. They also “pre-cycle” which means they buy up packaging that other companies rejected because they changed the design, made a mistake in the manufacturing process, and so on. I can really get behind a company striving to cut down on waste. Prices vary by product choice from Cardinal Pet
True Blue Fresh in a Flash
Emmett has super dry skin. Like, it’s painful to see him suffer during the winter. We have a bunch of strategies in place. He takes supplements. We have special shampoo. But he still needs a little extra help WITHOUT extra baths (because they dry his skin so much more). Enter True Blue!
The Fresh in a Flash Cleansing Spray gives his coat a little boost of clean without stripping him of the oils he needs to keep from over-drying. My favorite part, though, is that the product doesn’t build up on his coat. This is a sweet, inexpensive stocking stuffer to give or get. $12 from Amazon
