I've got a few reviews lined up for you today, and also a pawsome GIVEAWAY!
First up is an awesome burrow bag and a cute little jacket from Custom Critter Couture. CCC is run by Mary, who is such a sweetheart and is so great to deal with! She makes custom, warm fleece coats that don't have buckles/velcro/buttons (keeps the bulk down!) and also cozy sleeping tubes and sleep sack.
Being a Dachshund, it's in my blood to burrow and dig. Every night before laying down, I dig and pull at blankets to make myself a nice nest, then I burrow under the blanket to sleep. While it's cozy for me, it messes up
The jacket is so soft and warm, and very easy to move in. Since there's no buckles or things like that there's nothing to get caught up on and also no excess bulk.
Durable (sleep sack held up to Doxie claws and teeth)
Bags/tubes are a wee bit pricey
Up next we have everyone's best friend, Chewy.com! I've got two things from them to review, since I missed last month's deadline. The first thing is Merrick Natural Beef Jerky.
While I loved it, Mom was NOT a fan! DM: I have never in my life smelt treats that stink quite like these. The smell is so nauseating (to me. I also have a really sensitive nose) it made my eyes water, and the scent clung to my skin even after washing my hands several times. The ingredients are great, and the dogs love em, but if you have a sensitive nose I'd avoid these like the plague.
The other thing is something we both liked much better, and that is Wellness WellBites Lamb and Salmon treats. These treats are tasty and soft, have good ingredients and are a decent price for the amount and quality. The consistency is almost sponge-like, so they're very easy to tear up for training. The have just enough smell to entice us pups, but not enough to turn off the peeps. The bag is resealable, and since the ingredients are minimal they're great for allergy dogs like yours truly. I'd highly recommend these!
Up next we have a stunning leather collar from Made2Measure Leatherworks (also on Facebook here). Made2Measure specializes in beautiful leather dog collars, harnesses and leashes as well as cat collars and horse tack (I'm unsure of the exact terms for stuff like that. We aren't horse people!). Here's a bit about them:
I am Hannah the creator of Made2Measure-Leatherworks.
They have tons of designs, so I had a hard time picking what I wanted. I finally decided on a black leather collar with silver hardware and turquoise plaiting. It's 1" wide tapered to 3/4" at the ends, which is my favorite width.
The collar is so unique looking, so well made and I'm in love. Y'all know what a collar
|The buckle takes a little getting used to since it's different from most American styles.|
|Blue is SO my color.|
Lots of choices
Good prices (according to Google. The prices are in euro so I'm converting)
Shipping took forever
And last but not least, the one you've all been waiting for! A review and GIVEAWAY for Zuke's of their Lil' Links treats. Zuke's is my all time favorite treat company, so I'm stoked to do this review. Let's get to it, shall we?
Lil Links are Tootsie Roll sized dog treats that come in 3 yummy flavors: Chicken and Apple, Pork and Apple, and Rabbit and Apple. The Rabbit flavor was my favorite (it's also my favorite Mini Naturals flavor) by far. Each treat has 15-17 calories depending on the flavor, but they're fairly easy to break apart so you don't have to feed the whole thing.
As with every Zuke's product, the ingredients are stellar. Check em out:
Pork (or chicken or rabbit depending on the type), apples, carrots, potatoes, maple syrup, vegetable glycerin, tapioca, natural flavor, salt, phosphoric acid, sorbic acid, rosemary, turmeric, sage, citric acid, mixed tocopherols
Easy to break apart
Not too smelly
Good amount per bag
I give Lil Links my highest rating of 5/5 stars.
