#Spon My Dog FINALLY wants to sleep in a bed thanks to the Brentwood Home Pet Bed! (Discount Code and Give-Away!)

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Brentwood Home, Dakota received the Brentwood Home Runyon dog bed in exchange for our honest review. All opinions are our own.

TEN…LONG…YEARS. Let me say that again, TEN…LONG…YEARS…that is how long it has taken me to find a pet bed that Dakota will use.  You name it, we tried it and Dakota would NEVER USE any pet bed that has entered our home, (other than a flat pad that was called a bed, but in my opinion was not a bona fide bed,  and even THAT was rarely used). Any and all pet beds that Dakota received were promptly given to family members and/or friends COMPLETELY UNUSED.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by a California-based company,

 

they had seen Dakota on Instagram and asked me if I  would like to review one of their new beds. After visiting the Brentwood Home website, learning about the company and  after having viewed  their beautifully designed beds, I experienced a moment of totally forgetting  who my dog is. I jumped at the chance to review one of their beds. I had completely forgotten that MY DOG DOES NOT, NEVER HAS and most likely NEVER WOULD  sleep in a dog bed.  I was setting myself up for a disaster, or so I thought. Throwing caution to the wind I chose the  Runyon Deluxe Pet Bed , size Medium  (34-inch X 24-inch), my color of choice, Mocha.  I chose the size based on Dakota’s size (28 lbs),  and I knew the color would go perfectly with our furniture, carpet, floors…and…DAKOTA!

When  Dakota’s bed arrived, I looked at the long, narrower than I expected,  rectangular box and thought “There is a BED in there?” When I opened the box there was a beautiful bed resting covered in TONS of protective, heavy plastic wrapping! It was Dakota’s new bed that I was certain he would NEVER USE!

The color was just perfect and exactly as I hoped it would be!

With Dakota being a senior dog, I love that the gel memory foam and orthopedic support foam that this bed has, helps relieve and prevent body aches, joint pain, hip dysplasia, and arthritis.  Dakota sometimes seems a little stiff when he awakens and stretches and I am hoping this bed will help with that. The Runyon model that I have, also has bolster edges for additional support when needed. I was extra thrilled because I hoped that I would no longer watch Dakota sleep using the dining room table base as his pillow.

With all of the amazing features this bed has I wanted to sleep on it! The furniture grade upholstery cover is easy to wash and stain resistant!  Of course, because the bed was meant for Dakota, it was NOT “cat-resistant.”

Yep, there was Cody just smiling and dreaming away on Dakota’s new bed! After a few days, Dakota still hadn’t tried it and I was panicking. I went into the Sheltie group I am a member of on Facebook and asked if their Shelties used beds. The overwhelming majority said “No”, they preferred the floor. We all came to the conclusion that Shelties are so furry that they travel with their beds attached to them!  I was discouraged, but not about to give up! For the next few days I gave Dakota his treat dispenser IN THE BED. Maybe that would work! Worst case scenario would be that Cody would end up reviewing the bed, but I was still not giving up. Then, one night as I was sitting in the dark, (without a camera), I caught a glimpse of a furry creature  laying on the bed, it was Dakota! I didn’t want to discourage him from using the bed so I didn’t get my camera. I prayed this wouldn’t be the only time that he used the bed. It wasn’t…………he has used it EVERY NIGHT SINCE!

The ordering process at Brentwood Home is easy and the delivery is superb! Your new Brentwood Home Pet Bed has a warranty, and though I am doubting you would need it, they have easy returns. Their communication is fabulous!

Dakota thinks it is pretty funny that I thought he wouldn’t use his new bed:

I wish I had the words to convey just how ecstatic I am when I  see Dakota FINALLY sleeping in a bed, and a bed as stylish and of the high quality that his Brentwood Pet Bed is.  Thank you Brentwood Home! After TEN YEARS Dakota is FINALLY SLEEPING IN A BED!  Dakota also said that from the moment he saw his new bed he KNEW he would love it but wanted to make me nervous! Dakota also said that he wants his friends to experience the new Brentwood Home Pet Beds  because he knows that all of you will love them! There are TWO STYLES TO CHOOSE FROM! You can choose the Runyon as I did, or the Griffith. The Griffith bed does not have bolstered sides.

Pet Winery Has Holiday Cheer for Your Pets! (World-Wide Give-Away!)

Disclosure: I received products from Pet Winery for Dakota and Cody to review. I was not compensated monetarily for this post because in keeping with the spirit of “Giving” at Thanksgiving, I chose to waive my fee.  If in doubt about any product for your dog or cat to drink, ask your Veterinarian first, as I did!

There is nothing I love more than when I discover a company that  has quirky, fun and interesting products, AND they are a company that gives back!  The company I am featuring today, Pet Winery, is that company!  

The holiday season officially kicks off this week with the arrival of Thanksgiving in the U.S. Humans often  enjoy indulging in some holiday “cheer”, why should your pets miss out? Now, they don’t have to!

 

Pet Winery features PetWines, PetChampagne, DogBeer, Martinis and PetTEA for dogs AND cats! (Spoiler Alert: Cody will be featuring products on his blog with a give-away on December 1st.)

Pet Winery was founded to create healthy beverages and treats for your canine and feline friends. They are animal enthusiasts and work hard to make products that are vitamin enriched, healthy and safe for your best friend. They are located in  Florida and only use US organic products to ensure the highest level of quality. All products are produced in a food grade lab in an ISO7 clean room.

When Dakota and Cody’s products arrived I was just dying with how clever and adorable they are! Dakota received BarkBrew Beef Ale and Dog Pawrignon featured below:

BarkBrew Beef Ale: Beer for dogs! How funny is that? Available in 3 great flavors; Chicken Ale, Beef Ale, or Calm Ale (Salmon oil and Hemp oil.)

Dog Pawrignon: Champagne for dogs! Formulated so you can now pop bottles with your dogs! This 12oz bottle is the perfect drink. Blended with filtered water, a healthy dose of salmon oil (wild caught) and organic food coloring.

THE BOTTLES ARE SAFE, THEY ARE NOT GLASS.

I checked with my Vet first before allowing Dakota to taste both drinks (at separate times), and he said as with anything else, if it  is something your pet isn’t used to, giving an extremely small amount is the wise way to go. (Both bottles have suggested serving amounts listed on them)

Pet Winery Gives Back!!  Pet Winery Estates knows  “that every paw matters.” As a result, they  decided to work together with  Shelters, Rescues, Humane Societies, and other pet adoption agencies. Each month they  feature a different agency and donate a portion of their sales to them! By featuring a different agency each month you will get to find out who the agency is, what they do and their mission. You will get to know their team and meet some of their adoptable pets. By donating a portion of each purchase to the agencies featured, they are helping them continue what they do best, “finding homes for their Pawfriends.” How cool is that?

Your purchase will help them make a difference, so visit their website and make a purchase for your pets today! There is even a special for Black Friday 30% OFF WITH CODE: BLACKFRIDAY (*not available on bundle deals).
