Feeding Raw

     We are on day 3 of raw feeding. :) The dogs love it, and *fervently knocks on wood* there's been no issues. I'm doing more of a prey model diet vs. the BARF diet at this point, although that might change. They're only getting non-organ chicken meat for the first two weeks to make the transition as easy as possible, and once we've gotten past that I will slowly start adding in organs and different meats.
Nola is being switched from a home cooked diet, and Pike is being switched from Orijen Puppy. They're getting about 4oz and 5oz a day, respectively. They're fed in a crate, and once they're done the crate and bowl are bleached out. So far they've had chicken wings, chicken backs, and today's menu consists of chicken legs along with a few chunks of breast meat to disguise their heartworm pills.

WARNING: Raw meat photos ahead. A little gross, but so are so many aspects of dog owning. ;)

August PetBox Review

Hey, guys! It's time for another PetBox review. This is our August box review, as I couldn't post last month due to computer issues. Here are the goods:

  • Be Pawstive Dog Biscuits. My pups aren't a huge fan of dry, biscuit type treats, but they've had these before and actually enjoy them. Be Pawsitive is a wonderful company that boasts a "Buy One, Give One" program. 

  • Emerald Pet Twizzie Piggie Chew.  By a complete goof up on my part, I gave this to Nola, completely forgetting that she's sensitive to pork. That was a fun mistake, let me tell you.... Aside from that little mishap, this was a great chew; not too smelly and no nasty residue. (forgot to photograph it before it met it's timely demise...oops)

  • Pawtastic Fleece Tug Toy. Tugging is huge for my dogs, especially Pike, so I was initially thrilled to open the box and find this. However, it is way too small to be used as a tug for even my little guys, at maybe 6" long.

  • For Dirty Dogs Dry Shampoo. I've never used a dry shampoo and haven't tried this out yet, but I'm excited to see how it does! Nola is a very clean dog, but Pike gets absolutely filthy, so this will definitely come in handy.

  • Alcott Adventure Bowl. A good sized collapsable bowl with velcro on the bottom to it stays nice and small when not in use. I've never seen a collapsable bowl with velcro on the bottom, but it's a genius idea; the bowls I've used without it never lay flat, and almost defeat the purpose of having a bowl that closes down.

As always, the Duo and I are very happy with PetBox, and highly recommend them!
