Benebone Bacon Flavored Wishbone Dog Chew Toy

Review and Buy: Benebone Bacon Flavored Dog Toy

A bacon bone! I wasn’t familiar with Benebone but found their bacon-flavored toy on Amazon. They look like a well-respected dog product company out of New York. My oldest dog, Ace, has a pretty restrictive diet. But in the day, bacon treats were his go-to snack. He can sometimes be a picky eater. But bacon, that always hit the spot for him. So when I found a chew toy that is flavored with bacon, well, that’s not a problem with his diet. So I bought it.

Review: Smart Pet Love Snuggle Puppy

In my 25 years of dog ownership, a lot has changed.

I brought home Max Sr as a 8 week-old puppy and placed him in his crate the first night. He howled and whined the entire night. After speaking to my vet the following day, I was given the recommendation of placing a small desk clock or other analog clock with a towel wrapped around it to mimic a mama dog’s heart beat. He also advised to play soothing music.  This worked.

Review: Perma Retractable Gate



This past summer we turned our deck into a zen-like retreat for my husband and myself. Complete with Buddha statue and soft lighting. We wanted our dogs to enjoy it too.

Our house is situated next to a state route and while not heavily traveled, those that do travel it rarely keep the speed limit. Our yard isn’t fenced and while we have a trolley-runner for the dogs in front of the house, behind the house is nothing. I wish I could say that our dogs were trained enough to stay on the deck, but they aren’t.

Elevated Dog Bowl

Review: Dogit Elevated Dog Bowl

I’ve heard mixed thoughts on the elevated dog dish. On one hand, it’s generally a good senior dog bowl so they don’t have to bend down to get food as well as taller dogs for the same reason. On the other hand, it’s not good for some dogs because it can be a factor in stomach bloat. I’ve been through this emergency – it’s terrifying.

Review: Dogit Go Slow Anti-Gulping Dog Bowl

Meet Ace, the speed eater. His main joy in life is eating. Doesn’t matter what. And the quicker he can eat it, the better; it means the more he can eat! He will finish his food first for the chance of vacuuming the scraps of his brothers and sisters.
