Bri's Weekly Top Three 6.23.17

Posted by Briana Graber on

Who doesn't love a dapper day?  I certainly do.  Almost any occasion to dress up is enough for me, and if it's something they're wearing anyway-why not dress up your pet?  Midlee has an adorable formal houndstooth dog harness.  Folded down collar with a red bow tie?  Against the houndstooth pattern it looks like your pet could either be going to a wedding or teaching a geometry class in style.  Adorably formal, I think it's a great way to keep your pet near with a touch of class.  Oh! It also comes with a leash so you don't have to worry about coordinating the outfit.

I love a good spa treatment as much as the next person, especially when it serves an extra purpose.  Warren London is on a roll for giving you a good reason to spoil your pet.  The deep cleaning paw fizz tablets are luxurious on your pet's paws while providing a whole slew of benefits.  They moisturize and condition paws while providing an anti-fungal treatment that also fights bacteria and yeast.  Not to mention the fact that it replenishes your pet's nails.  All good things, all the time, with a dash of luxury for good measure.

Summer day are here again, and what better way to celebrate than with a Margrrrrita on the deck?  This Skinnydog bottle shaped plush is a parody toy of a popular margarita blend and is in the bright summary colors of cream and bright orange.  Like all good plush toys, it contains a hidden squeaker that'll delight your pet almost as much as a nice margarita on the deck would delight you.  I think it's a great way for your pet to join you in a nice afternoon drink, and what says summer more than that?

Enjoy the summer weather!

The Many Meanings of Meow

All of us are familiar with a cat's meow.  It's on kids toys that distinguish the types of animal sounds, we've heard it from our own cats, cats at a friend's house, or even on internet cat videos.  But fun fact: cat's only really meow at humans, not at each other.  Meows are the cat's [...]

No More Hot Dogs

As the weather's heated up with summer well underway, it's important to remember that just because our pets are better suited to the heat than us, they aren't immune from it's effects. The most well-known danger is leaving pets in vehicles on warm sunny days. Short-snout breeds in particular suffer when left in [...]

And first up to bat is an adorable little baseball cap for your pup as they enjoy a sunny day at a ballgame or play fetch with them while keeping the sun out of their eyes.  The striped pattern on the front panel and bill of the hat is a brilliant touch of pattern and [...]

I was a bit surprised to see apricot and kiwi flavored dog treats this week.  It's something expected more of a fruit snacks pack, but after digging into it a bit more there are actually a lot of health benefits that can be had from this coconut based treat.  Coconut alone can "increase energy levels, improve [...]

The Real Differences Between Dogs and Wolves

We know we've influenced the behavior of dogs since their domestication.  After all, that's part of the process of domestication, we select the behaviors we like and discourage the behaviors we don't, selecting the most agreeable dogs to breed.  But a surprising amount of behaviors that we generally link to human influence actually trace back [...]

Bomb-Sniffing Dogs

We've all heard of bomb-sniffing dogs, but thankfully that vast majority of us haven't had to give them much thought.  But they're a worthy topic and provide a valuable service.  Those sniffers can have 300 million receptors in their snouts to our 6 million, and have a much larger nasal cavity that allows them to understand [...]

Who doesn't like lotion?  I tend to use it copiously due to chronically dry skin, and I'm very particular about which lotions I use because I hate that greasy film left behind by cheap lotions.  Dogs deserve the same treatment, perhaps more so, since they can't tell us whether or not cheap lotion bothers them. [...]

I'm a bird person, so one of the first things I noticed this week was the snuggle hut from Prevue Pet.  Birds are flock animals and parrots will often snuggle each other in the night.  A great alternative for the solitary domesticated parrot is a snuggle hut.  The plush interior will keep them feeling secure and [...]

Finding the Right Pet: Parrot Edition

Here's a very not-so-well-kept secret: I'm a bird person.  I adore dogs and like cats and bunnies just fine, but in truth I'm a bird person.  From their gorgeous coloration to their intelligence to their very natures, I love birds.  Particularly smaller breeds like budgies and lovebirds, but any time there's any kind of parrot [...]
