Bri's Weekly Top Three 9.1.17

Posted by Briana Graber on

Alright, it's finally time for my last top three article, and we've got a few interesting selections to look at today.  

For one, I worked with the brand Herbsmith for the first time this week.  Herbsmith is a brand that crosses traditional theories with modern research.  Their supplements are grounded in Chinese herbal remedies, their herbs picked from the best of their natural environments, and then tested right here in the USA before it's marketed to ensure their products work at their absolute peak.  One in particular I worked with was the Calm Shen, to help tame nervousness, anxiety, and destructive behaviors.  The fact that they post the breakdown of what each ingredient does on their website is both fascinating and helpful.  For instance "Angelica Tang Kuei (dang gui)...Tonifies the blood to nourish the heart without causing stress."

Then, with Halloween right around the corner in October already I enjoyed working with Up Country's Boo! Dog collar.  Up Country has a reputation for quality and the ghosts and pumpkins that dot this collar add just the right adorable touch to the upcoming spooky season.

And speaking of quality, I have yet to hear someone say something bad about fiesta ware quality, regardless of whether it fits their aesthetics.  For me?  I like the bold broad shapes and bright colors.  This pet bowl has a 7.25" diameter and holds 39.25 oz, or just shy of 5 cups for those who might have trouble visualizing amounts in ounces, like myself.  Fiesta ware holds up to the test of time and can make a statement in your kitchen or dining room.

Have a great week and stay safe.

The Question of Grains

One of the biggest movements in pet food the last few years has been a shift towards grain free products.  Treats, food, and even some chewable medicines now advertise themselves as grain free.  And all of it comes from a great place-wanting the best and healthiest lives for our pets.  Despite it's rising popularity, though, it's [...]

Who doesn't love cheese?  Granted, I live in Wisconsin, where even my lactose intolerance is barely an excuse to not enjoy or eat cheese, but still.  Cheese is delicious, and dogs think so too.  Actually my two favorite dogs run to the kitchen as soon as they hear a cheese wrapper opening and catch a [...]

Diverse Dogs and Familiar Felines

Even with cat breeds as distinctive as the sphynx, there's no solid argument that can be made that dog breeds are more diverse.  From coats to size to skeletal structure, there is a far wider range of traits displayed among dogs.  And it is a curious thing to wonder at.  After all, both domesticated cats [...]

The Third Largest Country of Dog Owners

Behind the US, which country would you peg next for owning the most dogs?  It might surprise you to find out that 2nd place goes to Brazil.  It might surprise you even more, however, to find out who isn't that far behind with 3rd place.  China.  I mean, yes they have the worlds largest population, more than [...]

Summer, Dogs, and Allergies

Want to scratch your nose?  Do your hands tingle?  Is there an itch you can't scratch?  Sneezing?  You might have allergies.  Same thing happening to your dog?  They might too.  Heck, they might even have some of the same allergies as you.  It's summer and therefore allergy season is well underway, so if your pet seems [...]

Is it next week already?  I could've missed it, it flew by so fast.  Guess that's what happens when you're busy making plans for the upcoming holiday.  Anyway, onto the products I found interesting this week.  First off, there's a leash from Freedom Harness, for the Freedom Harness (go figure, right?).  I don't know if you [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Bri's Weekly Top Three 5.25.17

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 [...]
