Great Halloween Dog Treat Ideas

What does your dog want this Halloween? Treats, of course! Pumpkin, in moderation, is safe and healthy for dogs and pumpkin flavored spooky treats make a perfect Halloween dog treat.  

Having a dog Halloween party or just celebrating with your own pooch? Here's a fun idea. Hide some yummy, all natural dog treats around the yard for your dog to sniff out. Barney and Coco, our dogs, absolutely love trick or treating in our backyard!

If you are going outside of the backyard with Fido this Halloween, stick to all natural dog treats, no human food and definitely no candy of any kind especially chocolate which is toxic for dogs. Carob is a dog safe alternative to chocolate and super yummy.

Dog Ripped the Couch, Again?!

Had to share this great find! Absolutely love, love, love this concept and company! Your dog rips a hole in the couch, what do you do? Replace it or live with it. We found this great company where you can replace just the parts of the couch that need replacing.

We recently replaced our old sectional because our dogs Barney and Coco ruined it. They (well I am not quite sure which one, neither is coming forward but going on the guilty look on Coco's face, I am pretty sure it was him) chomped a hole in the new sectional. Of course, we only had it for two months. Thankfully, the new sectional came from this great company that offers what they term "Renewability". You can replace any fabric or foam part on their couches and sectionals any time. Our couch looks brand new again and the replacement cushion cover was a lot cheaper ($18 plus shipping) than replacing the entire couch! We picked the "pet safe" and washable fabric. This fabric has built in stain and odor protection...even better. 

Make sure to get a fabric sample before ordering. The pet safe fabric is almost velvety. I personally love it but would suggest ordering a sample. It really is liquid resistant. I tested it. The frame of the couch can hold more than 2,000 pounds and has tons of built in storage. It is delivered ready to assemble, but this was not difficult at all. I chose the Brook style sectional that has foam back cushions that wrap over the top and stay snugly in place. These work better than pillow backs with Barney and Coco because they aren't tempted to attack the back cushions. 

Hope this helps someone in the same predicament.

Safe Easter Treats for Dogs

      Sure, you want to share some yummy Easter treats with your dog. But a lot of human food isn't necessarily safe for your favorite four legged friend. A popular Easter treat for us humans is, of course, chocolate which contains theobromine and caffeine, both of which are toxic to dogs.
      A sweet treat that is not toxic to dogs and is very similar to chocolate is carob. Regal Beagle Bakery offers many all natural Easter treats for dogs dipped in yummy carob and yogurt. Yogurt is another dog safe sweet treat. You can feel good about giving your fur baby our all natural, healthy dog treats this Easter.
      So, go ahead and throw your favorite pooch a dog safe treat this Easter! Choose from a variety of Easter treats for dogs including: Easter Bunny Treats, Easter Egg Treats, Easter Bones, Springtime Flowers, Mini Easter Cookies and Easter Baskets for Dogs. Let the Easter "treat" hunt begin! Have fun and start sniffing!

Fruity Dog Treats

       Did you know that some fruit, in moderation, can make a great healthy dog treat? Freeze dried fruit makes an excellent healthy snack for your furry friend. Your dog will love the crunchy texture. Freeze dried fruit also has a long shelf life.
       Bananas contain vitamin C, vitamin B6, manganese, and folate, all necessary in promoting your dog's good health. Bananas also contain antioxidants that aid in the good condition of skin and fur. Apples, strawberries, and blueberries are other great fruit choices for dogs. All are a rich source of vitamins and minerals.
      Be careful where you purchase your fruit dog treats. Not all are all natural. Regal Beagle Bakery's freeze dried fruit is all natural, made with no added sweeteners or preservatives. Not all fruit is safe for your dog, you can feel secure that any fruit on our website is dog safe. Regal Beagle Bakery also has freeze dried fruit dipped in dog safe carob! A yummy sweet treat that is not only healthy for your four legged friend, but delicious too!

Cocoa Mulch

Cocoa mulch, made from cocoa beans, has two ingredients in it that are lethal to dogs, caffiene and theobromine. It smells like chocolate and can attract dogs tempted to eat it. Dogs metabolize theobromine much slower than us humans and for this reason, it can be toxic to dogs.

We are not sure how much mulch the dog would have to ingest for this to cause a problem, but we thought we would put this out there for all our furry friends. There are so many other safer mulch options, why take a chance?

Other foods (some not so obvious) dogs should avoid: Chocolate, Coffee, Caffiene, Avocados, Grapes and Raisons, Onions, Garlic, Chives, Milk, Salt, Xylitol, Raw Eggs, Raw Meat or Bones, Yeast Dough, Macadamia Nuts and Alcohol.
