Win A THREE MONTH Supply Of SmartBones!!

You know how they say that “the third time is the charm?” Well, this is the THIRD time that I have featured SmartBones on my blog and I will tell you the reason!  Ever since the first time I tasted them they are my FAVORITE BONES!  I can’t control myself when they are in the same vicinity that I am. When I see a SmartBone I want ONE NOW! Check out the videos below that show me in Sheltie SmartBone Bliss!

Mom loved the “crinkly” packaging sound in the above video! Who cares about the sound? I just care about getting at those SmartBones!

What Are SmartBones?

SmartBones by PetMatrix, are chew treats made with chicken, vegetables and other healthy ingredients. These raw-hide free treats are perfect for the four-t0-five out of 10 consumers who prefer not to feed their doggies rawhide.

Who came up with this genius idea?

Martin Glinsky, Ph.D.,  that’s who!  Dr. Glinsky is considered one of the premier pet nutritionists in the country and is currently the Chief Science Officer at PetMatrix, creators of SmartBones and DreamBone chews.  He received his undergraduate education at Cornell University and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Illinois, specializing in Animal Nutrition and Nutritional Biochemistry.

He has lectured extensively around the world on pet nutrition and dietary formulation and started his own pet food manufacturing company in 1980, specializing in holistic and organic pet foods. His expertise in formulating, manufacturing, analyzing and testing of nutritional products for pets is well known and respected.

Dr. Glinsky formulated, engineered and produced the first dry pet foods to incorporate fresh ingredients, the standard of the holistic pet food category today. He has been intimately involved with many of the best-selling holistic foods brands being marketed around the world.

Wanna know more?

SmartBones are 99.2% digestible, which is higher than the digestibility of premium dog foods (85% digestibility).

Chicken, vegetables and other healthy ingredients dogs will love are used in making SmartBones.

   SmartBones are the first treats of their kind to be enhanced with vitamins and minerals.

SmartBones are safer for dogs than regular rawhide treats, which may cause intestinal blockages.

SmartBones are environmentally friendly, whereas a toxic chemical process is needed to create consumable rawhide for treats.

  SmartBones are available in Peanut Butter (which is what I was eating in the video)  and Chicken Flavors.  There is also a Dental variety with additional teeth health benefits. (Mom PAWTICULARLY LOVES THESE!)

Four different sizes of SmartBones are available, based on a dog’s weight:

Small Dog (5-10 lbs) Mini SmartBones
Small – Medium Dogs (11-25 lbs) Small SmartBones
Medium Dogs (26-50 lbs) Medium SmartBones
Large Dogs (over 50 lbs) Large SmartBones

SmartBones are available nationwide and at www.SmartBones.com.

I was not compensated for this review. I was sent  SmartBones  months ago when I did my first review and because I love them so much and the readers were so excited about the contest, SmartBones wanted to do another give-away! I WAS given more SmartBones for me to enjoy and I can’t wait for YOU to enjoy them TOO!

The Peak Antler Company, All Natural Antler Dog Products-Give-Away!

A few weeks back I was reading one of the blogs that I follow and came upon a product that completely intrigued me.  The product was  an all NATURAL  ANTLER DOG BONE TREAT.  I thought the entire concept was pure genius and thought they would be perfect for Dakota.

Before I continue, let me tell you that I STILL believe in these products, AND that I have a strange dog.

I had contacted The Peak Antler Company asking if I could hold a give-away and do a review and they enthusiastically agreed.

I was given a couple of samples of Antler Dog Bone treats for Dakota to try (one medium and one large)…before I continue I want to share information with you that The Peak Antler Company graciously provided:

“Antler dog bones are set apart from traditional bones as they will not stain your carpet, splinter or turn into slimy goo AND they last much longer than other dog chews. They are naturally shed deer or elk antler pieces, NO fillers, preservatives, added color or anything else! It’s just a bone the way nature intended! No animals are hurt in the collection of this bone!

The Peak Antler Company’s all natural antler dog bone products were started by the family dog Aussie, an Australian Shepherd/Dingo mix rescued from a local shelter.   Our main work involves Antler Chandeliers, Antler Lamps and Antler Furniture.  Aussie would sneak into the shop and steal antler pieces.  She would run off into the yard and chew on them for days.  She wouldn’t give them back even when I caught her stealing “red-pawed”.  We came home one day to find she had discovered the antlers in the coffee table as well, which was not so cute or innocent.  It became obvious she loved antler more than any other bone or puppy chew.  I cut up a few antler pieces for her in hopes of preventing more theft and save our furniture.  It worked!  Everyone was happy and the furniture was saved!  Soon after, a friend had an adorably large Black Labrador Retriever puppy who also discovered antler accent furniture in their home.  We shared an antler with Kona which saved not only the furniture but the sweet puppy from any further “time outs”. They began asking for more antler pieces for their friends dogs and the news spread fast.  It grew organically into a business by demand, just the way nature intended.

We offer 2 lines in four sizes to offer a good gnawing selection. Our dog bones are naturally shed antlers, gathered in the forest or on ranch lands at various times of the year, they are all weathered at different stages.

The economy line is slightly more weathered which leads to discoloration and more hairline cracking.

 We recommend our premium line for very aggressive chewers as they are more dense which helps them last longer and have less chances of cracking.”

As I mentioned earlier I BELIEVE in these Antler Bones. The problem is: Dakota doesn’t.  Dakota is a strange dog (sorry, but he is!) He hates certain things that other dogs love, maybe it isn’t strange, call it quirky.

I am still intrigued by the Antler Bones, I still think the concept is ingenious and I would love nothing more than to see a dog actually ENJOYING these because I am CERTAIN that they will!!

I waited to post about these bones because I thought they would be an ideal give-away for the Holiday Season!! While YOU are groovin’ to “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer” your dog can be enjoying chewing on Antlers!

GIVE-AWAY: if you are interested in winning an All Natural Antler Dog Bone Chew please leave a comment at the end of this  blog post.  (U.S. ONLY PLEASE) The winner can choose either a small, medium or large…also…I have one in large here (that I don’t want to waste!) so there will actually be TWO winners! The Peak Antler Company will mail one out to one of the winners and I will mail the one that Dakota did not use.

DEADLINE TO ENTER: MONDAY DECEMBER 26th at 11pm EST.

WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 28th.

PRIZES WILL BE MAILED

ON OR AROUND THE WEEK OF JANUARY 3, 2012

We received no compensation for this review. We were given 2 bones for Dakota to test. When he didn’t care for the first one (as I said that is HIM, I am CONFIDENT another dog WILL like these!)  I reserved the second for the give-away!

I Love My SmartBones!

Hi Everyone!

I have to tell you my Mom has been REALLY behind the Eight Ball lately! Geeze!

She owes the nice man who represents SmartBones (which I ADORE) a HUGE apology!

You see a few months ago Mom featured SmartBones on my blog and a few weeks ago the nice SmartBone man sent me an early holiday present! He sent me a box of SmartBones of my very own!!!

I was beside myself with excitement!

Well Mom was going to shoot a new video of me enjoying my SmartBones because she wanted other doggies to put these on their Christmas and Chanukah lists because they make GREAT stocking and Menorah stuffers! (well you can’t actually stuff these in a Menorah but you get the idea!) You could get one smart bone every night of Chanukah!

Anyway Mom wasn’t able to shoot a new video of me for a variety of reasons:

1) She is a huge procrastinator

2) She never has the video camera available when I am doing something REALLY cute (well that is every minute of the day and who can carry around a video camera every minute of the day?)

3) My brother Cody and I keep taking turns being sick. First it was me and my eye trouble (which Mom STILL hasn’t written or posted Part II) Then Cody has to go and get sick a few days ago and we still aren’t sure if he is ok.

4) FOOTBALL. That isn’t an acceptable excuse since Mom isn’t a first string player (although she looks like she could be BOL!) but it HAS taken her away from the important task of helping me update my blog.

So, because I can’t shoot a video of myself (due to being all paws) and Mom is a lazy slacker (no presents for HER this year!) I have to update the earlier SmartBone  post that I wrote and I am posting it below.

THANK YOU to the nice man at SmartBones who is more thoughtful than my Mom! I love my SmartBones and doggy buddies you need to tell your Moms and Dads about these so you can get some too!

Here is the post! Enjoy!

 

Did you know that I am a “chewing machine?”

Some of the SmartBones that I received!

Oh yeah! If it’s chewable, (or not) I’m all over it!

I’ve been known to chew wood, cell phones, metal door stops, you name it.  It’s not all my fault, I come from a long line of “chewers!”

Did you know that it is important for dogs to chew?

When doggies lived in the wild, they used to tear through the skin of wild beasts to get at the meat! We doggies that don’t have to hunt for our food don’t get to do that. It isn’t good for our teeth not to be able to chew things! We get a build up of tartar which can lead to periodontal issues and disease.

Some doggies chew out of boredom (like me!) These pet chews are the perfect answer to that problem! YAY! You gooo Mom! Mom also likes that SmartBones offer nutrition and health benefits as well!.

You have no idea how excited I was yesterday when my Mom gave me a brand new product to try!

Mom gave me a SmartBone!

Wow was I ever excited!

What is a SmartBone you ask? Well, sit back, relax and I’ll tell ya!
