From The Makers Of SmartBones!! SmartSticks and SmartChips! A Dakota’s Den Exclusive! And…A GIVE-AWAY!!

Ohhhh my doggy  friends, I could barely keep my tongue in my mouth when I found out about this EXCITING SURPRISE  that I have just for YOU!!

Many of you have read over and over about my undying love for my :

because of that love, I get to be the FIRST, see THAT?! THE FIRST to tell you about two new additions to the PetMatrix family of  rawhide-free chew treats! This news is soooo hot off the press that I haven’t received my samples to test, but trust me, they are on their way!

One day our Vet, “Dr.Smiley”, told Mom that giving  me treats that are made of rawhide can be unhealthy for me.  Mom took that information quite seriously and that  is when Mom and I made the switch to   SmartBones. Doggies, am I ever glad that we did!

Now, due to HIGH customer demand, PetMatrix has added SmartSticks

This is a SmartStick! It looks like complete deliciousness! It’s all wrapped up waiting for us to enjoy it! I can’t wait to sink my teeth into one of these!!!

and SmartChips to their rawhide-free dog chew treat product line!

Don’t these look like tasty little appetizers that you would eat at a PAWTY?? Mom said I could invite my doggy friends and entertain with these they are so attractive and delicious-looking! I am sure they taste great too!

That news just makes me spin with excitement!

Similar to the original line of SmartBones, the new products are made with chicken, vegetables and other healthy ingredients!

Martin Glinsky, Ph.D.

Here is a message from my idol, PetMatrix Chief Science Officer Martin Glinsky, Ph.D.

“We’re excited to offer additional rawhide-free options to our customers who have responded so positively to our product line,” 

“Chew treats are an important part of every healthy dog’s diet since eating kibble alone doesn’t thoroughly exercise a dog’s mouth and can cause teeth to become disused and plaque-ridden.”

And, since keeping pets healthy is paramount, SmartSticks and SmartChips contain a special vegetable layer that is fortified with vitamins and minerals to help supplement daily nutritional requirements.  In fact, these treats offer more nutritional benefits than standard chew treats because rawhide treats offer very little nutritional value, Dr. Glinsky said. 

 “Even though rawhide is a form of protein, all proteins aren’t equal,” Dr. Glinsky said.  “Rawhide is an extremely low-quality form of protein, not the type that animals need for nutrition.”

 In addition to health benefits, SmartSticks and SmartChips are easier on a dog’s digestive system compared to rawhide treats.  Both products are 99.2 percent digestible, which reduces the potential for intestinal blockages – a problem that can occur when dogs swallow large pieces of rawhide treats.

Thank you Dr. Glinsky, I’ll take it from here!!

Doggy pals I am so excited I can barely contain myself!  I KNOW that you have to be excited too!  Both SmartSticks and SmartChips are available in Chicken flavor,  and, be still my heart, PEANUT BUTTER FLAVOR!  They are available at fine pet stores throughout the country and at www.SmartBones.com  (Mom is super familiar with that website cause when my “stash” runs low she is online in a flash!! ) I cannot be without my SmartBones and I can’t wait to try SmartSticks and SmartChips!!

Guess what doggy pals? YOU can enter for a chance to try them out too!!

Friday Fido Find! Freshpet Fresh Food For Pets! Look What I Got! And…Guess What YOU Can Get!

They must have thought of me when they came up with the term “Lucky Dog!”

Why?

Well I’ll tell ya!

Look at what I received in the mail! From FreshPet!

Freshpet sent me  3 (count ’em!) THREE  bags of goodies and a super high quality cooler made by Coleman to keep my goodies fresh  in when I am  on the go.   I bet Mom and Dad could steal it and use it should they go on a picnic! It came with 2 refrigerator cold packs! My Mom and I were simply overwhelmed by the generosity  of Freshpet and by the sight of these delicious looking snacks!

Just who is FreshPet?

Watch this video to learn more!

Can you tell how EXCITED I was to get my chops around this delectable goodie?

This bone is 100% all natural. It is a crunchy Brown Rice bone

The first item I tested was the DogJoy Fresh Bones! They are:

Crunchy brown rice bone with real chicken baked inside. A safer alternative to natural bones.

4.3 oz.

This bone was long-lasting and simply delicious!

My luck continued! Look what Mom gave me last night when I was having a full-blown bark-fest!!

Mom almost wanted to eat one too because they reminded her of beef jerky and Mom LOVES beef jerky!

These are:  Dog Joy Fresh Chews

Long-lasting chews made from free-range buffalo. Each hand-cut chew is slow roasted in its own juices. Maintains dental health naturally.

4.3 oz.

See how I have my paws? I do this when I am carefully holding onto something that I LOVE! My kitty brother tried to take this away. He’ll never attempt THAT trick again! BOL!

Do you believe I even received a THIRD item from Freshpet? I didn’t get to taste test this one yet but I am looking forward to enjoying these while I watch football with my Dad this weekend!

Yum!!! Sweet Potato!!! My Mom and I can't believe these wonderful flavors that Dog Joy has!! They are so unique and Mom thinks they look tasty enough for her to eat too!

” Dog Joy™ Sweet Potato Chews: The only ingredient is sweet potatoes, naturally full of beta carotene, vitamins and dietary fiber. Each slice is slowly baked to chewy perfection. Available in a 7.5 oz. resealable pouch.”

Mom and I are awfully impressed with Freshpet! I think I am going to work on Mom to switch me from the food I am now eating to this food!! Mom just used their STORE LOCATOR TAB on their WEBSITE and GUESS WHAT DOGGIES!!?? Mom just learned that Freshpet is available at EVERY store she shops at!!!

That’s enough to make me do Sheltie Spins the ENTIRE WEEKEND!!!

GUESS WHAT?
