Happy Dog Happy Life!

My Harley is everything to me; he is family! I treat him like he is one of my kids; he follows me around just like them.  I couldn’t see life without my Harley.  He makes me happy, and I want to make him happy.  Here are some easy ways to have a happy dog! 

Our Harley has been with us 3 years- we love him!

Happy Dog Happy Life- with my pit Harley

Weight Control

Food is super important- don’t give dogs cheap filler food and be careful with human food.  Do your research!  One thing I was very unclear when it came to feeding my dog is HOW MUCH, and I’m sure I fed him too much for the first year or so.  But now OMG I have it easy with the Portion Paw.

Happy Dog- Portion Paw helps with portion control!
  • They all have a different portion size, and I wanted to make it easy to feed them every day.
  • With three sizes in 1, the Portion Paw allows me to give our family the right portion…every time!
  • To make it even easier, the Portion Paw clips right to your bag of pet food.
  • Over 55% of dogs and cats are overweight… help out your furry family members!

I love this gadget!  Mainly because I’m not going through bags of food like I was- I’m going to assume I was feeding him too much.  His vet did say he was gaining weight every month, and we needed to walk him more.  But his last vet visit- we got GOOD BOY comment that he hasn’t gained any more weight and was exactly where he needed to be on the scale of his age.  Woohoo! 

I highly recommend the Portion Paw for all dogs! Plus, the price is under $6! 

TREATS always make a Happy Dog! 

Oh my gosh- Harley goes crazy when it comes to TREATS.  We love to try new treats to give to him, and we were gifted these amazing snacks! 

Cooper’s Treats -meat-based, frozen dog treat mix that’s easy and fun to make at home, plus it’s great for your pup! All you have to do is add water to the mix, freeze, and give to your dog. These treats are the perfect summer activity for any dog-owning family, and the Starter Kit makes a great gift. We highly recommend Cooper’s Treats!

Happy Dog- Pupsicle Starter Kit contains everything you need to whip up easy, homemade frozen treats for your dog!

Pupsicle Starter Kit contains everything you need to whip up easy, homemade frozen treats for your dog! They are so much fun to make too.  My daughter has made herself in charge of making Harley’s PUPSICLES.  With the starter kit, you get one jar of Turkey and Cinnamon Treat Mix and one jar of Beef and Cheddar Treat Mix, two silicone treat mold trays, and a tablespoon scoop. The kit makes 48 treats!  Wow!  This is a product we will buy again and again! Easy to make, and Harley loves the taste and the coldness. 

Cooper’s Treats mixes are great for your pup – they are:

  • Made with real turkey and beef
  • Packed with protein
  • Non-GMO
  • Full of nutrients to promote healthy joints and a beautiful coat!

How about Doggie Desserts? 

Introducing the Barkaron – the first-ever handcrafted doggie dessert that is decadent, safety-tested, super healthy, plus it comes in an elegant, eco-friendly gift box made with handcrafted paper.  My Harley LOVES these- mainly because he is a CHEWER!

We were able to try the Barkaron® Superfood Blend with Camel Cheese (16 pc dog macaron gift box) and OMG I was like Camel Cheese Ewwww- but Harley he won’t stop jumping until I give him one- so he must love this flavor-(Camel Cheese: Dogs as Chocolate: Humans).

This box is for Skin & Coat plus Joint & Mobility Support.  Very healthy and pure ingredients and under $25 (which I feel is so worth it), these are special treats and given to Harley when he does something special! 

How about FARM FRESH INGREDIENTS for your doggie?  

Now, who wouldn’t want to give your pup amazing treats that were tasty but also healthier.  My Harley gets treats daily for nothing- I know some people only give treats for things the dog does, but I give treats because I LOVE HIM! 

I feel so good giving him treats that aren’t bought at the local grocery but come from a company that makes their treats from 100% farm-fresh ingredients and are completely free of antibiotics, hormones, chemicals, and pesticides.

Farm Hounds are a MUST on the Dog Treat list- they have so many treats, gifts, toppers, box subscriptions, plus monthly deals! We highly recommend the Variety Pack w/ Hide Box, which has a little bit of everything they offer.

Why not a PILLOW?  

Yep, I did say a pillow.  I love pillows, and my bed is full of them.  They don’t even match each other (now that is another post-HAHA), but I love pillows.  So does my doggie-Harley. Since we both love pillows, why not get a pillow with HARLEY on it!  Yes, that is exactly what I got! 

Happy Dog- LifeLike Pillows is the world's first 100% custom-shaped pillow that allows you to turn your favorite images into a double-sided, ultra-soft, realistic pillow.

OMG, I love my Harley Pillow, but as you can tell, it is a different color than my Harley, but that was my fault.  I sent them a picture of Harley that I put through a filter- duh, so yes, the color is off, but it’s him, and I love it!  I think any pet owner would love this as a gift!  Remember, the holidays are creeping upon us! 

Keep the FLEAS away! 

This is one thing for sure that will help you have a happy dog- keep fleas and ticks away. My doggie got fleas so bad last summer; it was CRAZY, and I felt so bad for him.  It took us a bit to get rid of them; I felt I was in a vicious circle. He kept getting them, even after we got rid of them in the house.  So we knew this year we had to do something but nothing toxic or dangerous that would hurt Harley or the family. 

HAPPY DOG-First Saturday Lime-

Well, we found out about First Saturday Lime- (btw they were on Shark Tank) and knew right away this is what we needed!  

  • Satisfaction Guaranteed.  Eco-Friendly.  Patent-pending.
  • Just pour around the base of your home once a month for insect control. One 20lb bag goes around an average 2,000 sq foot home.
  • Safe for children, pets, animals and organic farming
  • Treats ants, fleas, ticks, lice, mites, aphids, small hive beetles, mosquitoes in water, and more.
  • No respiratory hazards nor silica compared to diatomaceous earth.
  • Control algae growth in water bowls, pans, troughs, birdbaths, and more.
  • An eco-friendly barrier with multiple uses that include chicken coops, stables, barns, kennels, gardens, sheds, and more.
  • Use as a limewash for walls, crafts, coops, fruit, and trees.

Besides having a dog, we also have a garden that we are always having issues with aphids, so this was a no brainer for us.  This summer, Harley is FLEA FREE, and that makes him a very happy dog!
