Pick up your poop with Catch-a-Poo !!! Enter to Win!

Hi all! It’s Dakota and today I have a super innovative product to show you! In full disclosure, I didn’t pawsonally test it, nor were we compensated for this feature/give-away, and we did NOT receive this product.  Last November when Mom was at the Miami-Ft.Lauderdale Pet Expo, Mom got to see it in action! She SAW with her own eyes that it WORKS!  Mom thinks this product is super cool! She got to talking to the gentlemen at the booth that were exhibiting the product, they were SUPER nice so  Mom told them if they wanted to be featured on my blog to give her a bark out and they did! So, today I am introducing you to the amazing Catch-a-Poo!

How did Catch-a-Poo come to be?

When Mom met the nice man from Catch-a-Poo he told her that  he started working on the Catch-a-Poo right after  his  Great Dane dog, “Buddy”,  joined his family!! For obvious reasons, he was determined to create a product that would catch the dog poo before hitting the ground!

What is the Catch-a-Poo?

The Catch-a-Poo is a lightweight portable device that actually catches the

poo before it hits the ground. When retracted it is approximately 19 inches

long and when extended it is approximately 34 inches long. A flashlight

attaches to the handle for nighttime use. The weight of the Catch-a-poo with

the flashlight attached is less than one pound.

It works for BIG Dogs!!

IT WORKS FOR ALL DOGS!

The Catch-a-Poo eliminates the need to bend over and pick up dog poo with your

hand in a bag. It is great for the environment since it captures 100% of the

poo. The device fits multiple size bags and retails for less than $20. How can ya beat THAT?

Win a comfy bed from goDog® BedZzz™

Hi my furiends! It’s Dakota and I am beyond excited to present a product to you that you can enter to win! It’s from our furiends at The Quaker Pet Group who just happen to have a product line called:

I am lucky because they sent me a bed to review and also are allowing me to have a give-away! Here is a photo of my bed!

My

goDog® BedZzz™

If you have been a long time follower of my blog, you know that my Mom is ready to tear her hair out with me. Why? I CHOOSE to sleep on either our area rugs or our Pergo floor and do not sleep on a bed. Mom does not understand the reasoning behind it, (could it be because my coat is so fluffy that I have built-in bedding?), or am I just strange? (The second part of that question is rhetorical and does NOT require a response, BOL!)

When Mom was contacted by an elf from The Quaker Pet Group asking if I wanted to review and give-away any of their products, Mom was ecstatic and was particularly ecstatic when she saw this bed from goDog® BedZzz™! It looked super comfy and Mom hoped with all of her heart that I would sleep on it!

About the goDog® BedZzz™

goDog® BedZzz™ are made to stand up to tough love! These SOFT and DURABLE beds are made with Chew Guard Technology™, a proprietary process that adds a tear-resistant mesh lining to all of our products. We’re so sure that these BedZzz™ will stand up to your pup that we GUARANTEE them! 

goDog® Bubble BedZzz™ fit most standard crates

XS: 18″ x 13″

SM: 23″ x 17″

MD: 30″ x 19″

LG: 35″ x 23″

XL: 43″ x 28″

XXL: 49″ x 30″

goDog® BedZzz™ are GUARANTEED to last longer than standard soft plush beds or we will give you a free one-time replacement! Guarantee valid for 30 days from purchase date. Shipping and handling fees apply.

When it arrived, Mom could NOT have been happier!!! Mom ordered a size large for me (see size chart above).  It TOTALLY matches our living room and conveniently fits under both our coffee table and dining room table, (two of my favorite sleeping spots) so Mom thought (and thinks), that this is just the ticket to get me OFF of the floor and on to a bed!

I was a little leery of the bed when it first arrived, I WILL eat treats from my treat dispenser on it, but so far I am not sleeping on it, but Mom says that THIS BED STAYS because she loves the quality, the feel, the look, size, color and everything about it!

In full disclosure from Mom: We have had the goDog® BedZzz™ bed for less than one week. When I booked the slot on my calendar to post a review, I thought we would have had the bed longer to test it for a longer period of time before writing our review. That being said, I LOVE the bed and couldn’t be happier with the quality and visual appeal.  Now, to get Dakota to USE it! Also, we were not compensated for this review/give-away. We were sent one goDog® BedZzz™in exchange for our honest review.

NOW ON TO OUR GIVE-AWAY!

ONE LUCKY PERSON FROM THE U.S. WILL WIN THEIR OWN goDog® BedZzz™!!

 (An approximate $40 value)

Today I am THRILLED to feature a new friend!  A few months ago I was contacted by a kind gentleman at  Pawtini,

Click here to visit Pawtini online!

Click here to visit Pawtini online!

a NEW, super cool website for dog items, where you can find a vast assortment of things such as:

  • Treats
  • Carriers
  • Costumes
  • Collars
  • Outdoor Gear
  • Boots, Beds
  • and MORE!!

pawtini free shipping

I knew that my experience was going to be a good one right off of the bat! The gentleman who contacted me was helpful, professional and super kind.

I was offered a $50 gift card to purchase anything at all that I would like on the site, in exchange for my honest review of the site and the products that I purchased.

FROM PAWTINI:

Delivering puppy smiles is what we do here at Pawtini! We strive to supply merchandise of great quality for your loved family members. From comfortable beds and clothes to fun toys and treats, we have what you need for any size dog. Our low prices, friendly customer service and high-end quality products are only a few reasons why your dog will love Pawtini.com! 

I found the site incredibly easy to navigate and pricing is competitive. There are items for EVERY BUDGET! One fun thing is, as soon as you visit, a pop up window is displayed asking if you would like a free toy. When you make a purchase you are given a free toy. Mine was the item featured on the right in the photo below.  Isn’t it just adorable? Also, instead of a shopping cart you put your items in a SHOPPING BOWL!! (How cute is that??? Like a DOG BOWL!!!!)

pawtini toys

One of the first items that I chose is on the left. It is the PATRIOTIC PLUSH DOG TOY HEART. I think it is adorable and I purchased it because Dakota has an OLD red, white and blue plush ball that he adores. It is in such ridiculous shape (not torn though), and it is his favorite toy. One day, it will go to the big toy heaven in the sky, so I wanted to replace it with another red, white and blue toy which I am sure will be one of his next favorites!

My only complaint about the site was that there were a few items listed that I wanted to purchase but they weren’t available. It turned out not to be a  problem because there is something that I found to be UNIQUE about Pawtini that will make me be a regular customer. They feature SPORTS ITEMS!!!  As of today 676 PRODUCTS WORTH OF SPORTS ITEMS FOR DOGS!!!!

Pawtini has sports items that doggies will DROOL OVER!!!

My husband and I are football and baseball freaks and I LOVE purchasing items for Dakota that feature our favorite teams!

The above says “apparel” but guess what? They have tug toys that feature different teams, (both college and pro),  such as the one I got for Dakota that features the Detroit Lions.

pawtini lions tug toy 2

The toy is super well made and sturdy. It is the perfect size for a great game of tug-o-war!!

“Are you all ready for this????” For those of you with small, girly-girl dogs, they even have CHEERLEADER COSTUMES!! They are so adorable I thought I would die!

I had a field day browsing the various sports items and I know that that part of the website is going to be getting the most use from me! I was excited to purchase a DETROIT LIONS DOG FOOD BOWL for Dakota, that is just pawtastic!!!

AND HERE IS DAKOTA’S!!

Now, I happen to be a Cleveland Browns fan as well, but to appease my Detroit-born-and-raised husband, we are starting off with Detroit sports items for Dakota. Trust me, there will be Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Indians items added to Dakota’s collection, you can COUNT ON IT!

I give Pawtini 4-paws up! I couldn’t be happier with my items! If I hadn’t been though, Pawtini offers:

pawtini returns

They also have a Customer Service tab where you can find answers to FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (such as accepted forms of payment, etc.)

I was so engrossed in the site trying to decide what to get, that I must have spent a good half hour (easy!!) there! It was so much fun poking around, I am sure that when you visit you will feel the same way!

GIVE-AWAY!! I am THRILLED because the kind gentleman at Pawtini has offered ONE OF MY READERS, who RESIDES IN THE U.S. A $50 GIFT CERTIFICATE to be used on the site, just like mine!! Entering is easy, just enter on the rafflecopter below and GOOD LUCK!

Allow me to tell you a little bit about Front Porch Pets:

Their products are:

  • 100% Family Farm Grown and produced in the USA
  • They do not use wheat or wheat gluten in any of their products

From their website:

 We are dedicated to providing your dog with an excellent alternative to commercial dog chews and treats. All of our sweet potato dog treats and chews are made from USA grown orange fleshed, sweet potato (though sometimes you may find them labeled as “yams” at the grocery store.) These chews and treats are highly nutritious and excellent for your dog’s teeth and health.

Sweet potato is very high in anti-oxidants. We add nothing artificial, no sweeteners, colors, or processed food items. Sam’s Yams are made only of human food quality, fresh sweet potato and nothing more. The trick is in the patent pending drying process, where the sweet potato is transformed into a chew that has characteristics similar to rawhide or jerky. Basically, a vegetable rawhide-like chew. Best of all, Dogs Love Them! There are three different shapes and sizes available.

Front Porch Pets is about:
Providing nutrition, but as importantly
Providing the Two A’s, Attention and Activity.
Walk your dog, meet the neighbors, have some great stories to share.
Animals enrich our lives

 

There were so many delicious goodies to try, I could barely make up my mind! But FINALLY, after intense deliberation, I decided!

COOKIES!!

Front porch cookie display theirs

A Natural Herbal Treat for Dogs. JUST PURE FOOD,
Unadulterated. Fresh from the Farm & Garden.
THE WAY IT WAS MEANT TO BE.

We believe that your dog’s health AND
enjoyment of eating and chewing depend
upon REAL Food, minimally processed.
Sam’s Yams Cookies™ are made of
premium ingredients. We DO NOT include
any of the more common allergens that affect
our canine companions. The two primary
ingredients are sweet potato and applesauce
— two flavors dogs love. This combination not
only helps “carry” the flavor of healthful but
somewhat bitter herbs, but it provides a great
foundation for other flavorful, complementary
foods such as seeds or fruit, and culinary
greens such as parsley, mint and thyme.
Sweet potato itself is ranked by Science
in the Public Interest as the #1 Vegetable for
its beneficial nutrients. Our goal is to provide
your dog with a treat both natural and yummy,
one your dog will truly enjoy eating.
NOTE: People often ask if they can munch
on these themselves. Absolutely; we do. Just
remember who you bought them for.

THEN IT WAS ON TO:

Sam’s Yams

Front porch  sweet potato theirs BigBoyz-clip-1200 (1)

Made from 100% sweet potato, Sam’s Yams®
are totally digestible and are an excellent
nutritional chew, far superior to other health
treats in any nutritional comparison. We use
only water in our processing. Nothing else.
Our Patented process creates a hard, ridged,
grooved surface. It’s great for dental health
and has the chewability dogs enjoy. All Sam’s
Yams® are particularly well-suited for senior
dogs whose teeth and gums are more sensitive.
