Seasons GREENIES® A Surprise for me AND for YOU! GREENIES® CANINE DENTAL CHEWS!!

Hi every doggy! (and kitties that may be in attendance!) it’s Dakota!

I just love this time of year! Everybody is happy, people are exchanging love, caring, presents, even licks! One of my favorite things is when I receive an unexpected gift! That is EXACTLY what happened last week!

I was just sitting around, minding my business, listening for sounds and watching out the window for any doggy that might be going potty in MY territory, when what did my alert Sheltie ears hear? A knock at the door!

After alerting my Mom and Dad by doing my best Sheltie barks and continuing on for 20 minutes AFTER the fact, my Mom showed me what had arrived.

What in the world?? Mom and I looked at each other in surprise. We weren’t expecting anything. I was overcome with excitement, I was spinning 100 times faster than my normal cyclone-speed Sheltie spins! ….Hurry Mom! Open it! What’s inside?

Mom immediately picked up the phone and thanked our furiends at GREENIES®  and then she decided, that as a THANK YOU to  GREENIES®, she would have me blog about these wonderful treats. That made me think. I don’t like featuring things on my blog that YOU can’t win, so I dictated an email to my furiends at GREENIES®  and told them I was going to blog about their special surprise and asked if I could please have a give-away for YOU! Guess what! They said YES!

I Love My SmartBone! You Will Too! Give-Away!!

Hi Everyone!

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

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

This is the SmartBone that I had!

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!

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 and Chicken Flavors.  There is also a Dental variety with additional teeth health benefits.

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

Here is a video of me lovin’ on my SmartBone!

I have to get my Mom to order me more SmartBones, I didn’t even bother my Dad during football when I had this!

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