Better with Pets Summit 2016

better with pets summit

This October I was invited to the Better with Pets Summit, an annual event presented by Purina in Brooklyn, NY! It was my first time attending the Summit and what an experience it was! I was extremely excited and thankful for the opportunity. The Summit brings together experts and leaders in the pet community to explore the future of pet care and experience how passion and innovation through nutrition will help improve the health and wellbeing of pets. Because after all (I think we’d all agree if you’re reading this)…life is better with pets. Especially pit bulls ;). Below I’ve recapped the day and things I took away.

The day kicked off a welcome keynote from Nina Leigh Kreuger, President of Purina PetCare. Side note: I also had the pleasure of speaking briefly with Nina the night prior to the Summit and loved how down to earth she was (and she has a son going to school in Colorado. Whoop!). The passion Nina has for her career was great to hear and she led us into the first panel: Demystifying Quality and Safety.

Panel 1: Demystifying Quality & Safety

Not an easy panel and it definitely brought up the tougher discussions about taking a closer look at the quality and safety standards of pet food. There is a huge farm to table movement, not only in our own food, but our pet food. People are demanding more trust from brands. I’m sure everyone remembers the huge pet food recall years back…we’ve come a long ways since then and as Shaun Kennedy mentioned, “There is very little difference between human food and pet food”. I remember even when I was young, our choices between dog food were minimal and at one point, our choices were either dog food or cat food. Things I learned:

  • The FDA is broken into various divisions and they have minimum requirements – to which Purina goes above and beyond
  • Almost all recalls do not pose a threat to health, but usually pertain to a labeling problems. Class 1 recalls are the only recalls which pose a threat to health.

Panel 2:  How a Passion for Pets Builds a Better World

A discussion about how connecting pets and people build stronger communities that will improve the health and well being of pets and people and ultimately shape a better world.

The panel opened with an amazing and touching story of Roben Harris who has a daughter, Selah, who has Spina Bifida and has extended hospital stays (over 27 surgeries before the age of 11) and always misses her dog, Chocolate Chip. In order for Selah to see Chocolate Chip in the hospital, Purina stepped in and helped create a room at the St. Louis Children’s Hospital where patients can visit with their pets during their hospital stays. And this is just one of the efforts valuing and recognizing the human and animal connection and bond.

Panel 3: The Science of Innovative Nutrition for Pets

This was probably my favorite panel which explored how nutrition has the power to help treat conditions to enable better lives for our pets. There is an obvious link between health and our food – not only for ourselves but for our pets. I am a huge advocate for feeding our pets right and feeding Lola and Rio clean, healthy foods and treats. As Steve Ettinger, Founder of Berkeley Veterinary Medical Group said, “Let food be thy medicine…we can treat disease with proper diet”. Such a powerful message, let’s keep our pets healthy from the beginning with a healthy diet and exercise – versus spoiling our pets. Another favorite quote from Steve, “Love does not mean to continually overfeed your pet”. Truth.

The day concluded with packing up gift boxes for the victims (and their pets) of domestic abuse at the Urban Resource Institute. I loved learning about the different programs and partnerships Purina has formed to prove their shared belief that people and pets are better together.

The Better With Pets Summit by Purina used the hashtag #LetsLiveBig – so let’s hear it from you how you are living big and how your life is better with pets!

Isle of Dogs – Shampoo, Treats, & Giveaway

isle of dogs giveaway

This dog shampoo, friends, I’m telling you. So dang good.

Lola and Rio were softer, smelled better, and seriously…smelled better for days (versus the typical first few hours after a bath). I’m a pretty harsh critic and won’t ever give a product five stars just because I’m doing a review. That’s not fair to my readers…or the brand.

I had the pleasure of trying out Isle of Dogs’ No. 20 Volumizing Shampoo with Royal Jelly and the No. 50 Light Conditioner with Evening Primrose Oil. Sounds fancy, huh? It is. I promise you your pup will be softer than ever and smell amazing after using this combo of shampoo and conditioner. And if your pups are anything like mine, I’m constantly kissing their little heads, cuddling them, and so forth, so it’s nice when they’re clean and smell amazing. While I’m not concerned about the need to “volumize” my two pitties, this shampoo seemed to clean incredibly well and I followed with the amazing conditioner with primrose oil (which smells a bit like laundry detergent IMO), and I can’t keep my nose out of their coats.

I encourage you to hop on over and explore the Isle of Dogs website – I love that they offer a wide range of grooming products (and more!) which cater to a variety of different coat types and needs.


A little more about the shampoo and conditioner from Isle of Dogs:

“No. 20 Royal Jelly shampoo is a highly effective tool in the fight against shedding. Formulated with Royal Jelly, a protein-rich botanical which stimulates new hair growth, repairs damage, and reduces shedding.”

“No. 50 Light Management is a light conditioner featuring moisture-enhancing Evening Primrose Oil that leaves a luxurious finish on the coat. The hair will be shiny and healthy, skin will be protected, and brushing will be easier.”

Oh, and we can’t forget about Lola and Rio’s favorite part – the cherry soft & chewy joint treats. Lola tends to swallow her treats whole, so I have to be really careful about giving her hard, crunchy treats. Soft treats though…she chews. She’s a strange one. I love these treats because of the quality ingredients and the addition of glucosamine and chondroitin to help support joint and bone health and reduce inflammation within the joints.

Then there’s the odor neutralizer spray. This replascent spray is great and smells refreshing without being overpowering. Violet + Sea Mist? Yes, please. I’ve primarily used it around the house, but repláscents offer an alternative to perfume and home sprays, which are not safe for application directly on your dog’s coat, while this spray is safe for your pet.

7 Essentials for Dog Walks

Let’s face it, anytime I leave the house with the dogs I have a checklist of things I have to bring with. You know…for an enjoyable, stress free walk. I used to run out of the house, two dogs in hand and be tangling leashes, juggling cell phones and keys and be screwed if I got thirsty. #firstworldproblems

1 – First up, comfy shoes – a definite must.


2 – A good leash

I’m always a sucker for a good leather leash – they last forever, look stylish, and are comfy on the hands. My other favorite leash? The waist-leash from Ruffwear.

3 – Shoulder Bag

You know for those poop bags, keys, cell phone, chapstick, etc. etc. We’re in absolute love with this over-the-shoulder bag from DOOG. It’s stylish, has an adjustable strap and the best part? It has a poop bag dispenser on the front. Hallelujah. Dog mom dreams do come true.

4 – Poop Bags. 

Stuff ’em in your DOOG walking bag dispenser. And bring extras. Because if your dog is named Lola she’ll always split up her potty trips into as many separate stops as possible.

5 – Water Bottle.

Usually mine ends up being poured into my walking mate’s mouths…


6 – Cell phone. No, not because I can’t go 30 minutes without taking a photo of my dogs, but you know…in case of emergency.

7 – Training treats. Last minute distractions, training practice, you name it…they always come in handy.

What is something you always bring on walks with your dogs? 


Molly Mutt Dog Bed Review (+ Giveaway)

We recently had the opportunity to try out a new dog bed, but not just any dog bed…one from Molly Mutt. Their beds are a little different in that the filling is decided by you! Have you ever left behind a blanket with your pup when you’ve went on vacation? Same idea…to provide your dog with the comfort of familiar scents! Love that concept…

Molly Mutts Dog Bed Giveaway and Review -

With Molly Mutt beds you purchase a duvet cover +a stuff-sack (which you fill on your own) to create your dog bed.

It was good timing too as Rio has this bad habit of chewing on beds…and rugs….and blankets.



We received a large duvet and “stuff sack” and although it took a lot of stuff to fill it – we managed to succeed by stealing from our Goodwill pile.

Pros/What I love about the bed: 

  • Durable, thick fabric
  • Washable cover (and pre-shrunk)
  • Variety of colors, patterns, and sizes
  • Smells like you when you add your own ‘stuffing’!

Molly Mutts Dog Bed Giveaway and Review -

Rio’s new favorite place to sleep. And (knock on wood) he has yet to attempt chewing it.

There were a couple things as an honest review I wanted to share. Definitely not quality issues, but more or less areas for improvement.

Cons/room for improvement:

  • Website is a little hard to navigate – no package option for 1 duvet and 1 stuff sack (nothing to do with the quality of the product) and no prompt to add the stuff-sack when you add a duvet to your cart (could be forgotten).
  • Took a lot of clothes to fill the medium/large bed! And as you can see, mine could probably use a little more stuffing.
  • Was a little lumpy, so I had to carefully arrange the clothes in the stuff-sack before pulling the duvet cover over.

Molly Mutts Dog Bed Giveaway and Review -

Lola’s face in this photo…priceless. Let’s just say this bed is Lola AND Rio approved and now we’re checking out which fabric we want for our water-resistant dog bed for the patio.

Now onto the best part, the giveaway. Yes, one lucky reader gets to pick their own Molly Mutt dog bed!

Paw5 Rock N’ Bowl Review

PAW5 Rock N' Bowl Review -

PAW5 Rock N' Bowl Review -

What could be more fun than testing something out which involves eating? If you ask Lola…nothing. Eating is by far one of the top three things she lives for. Along with tennis balls, disc, and sleeping. Good combo if you ask me.


Well, recently we got the opportunity to try out PAW5’s new puzzle feeder, the Rock ‘N Bowl.

Isn’t the orange color super cute?

I mean…if dog bowls can be cute, this is it.

Lola: “What the heck, the food is coming out the bottom now”

Rio: “Lola…watch out, I’m all over this!”

Lola: “But you already finished YOUR food”

(I had to politely remove Rio from our little photo shoot, but no worries – he got to test out the bowl, too)


Om, nom, nom…

Meanwhile, I’m looking at all the slobber on my floor. Just another day in the Lola household.

“Dogs are incredibly intelligent and social creatures that need ways to think, work and be active. By adding environmental enrichment to mealtime, a routine part of every day, we believe we’ve made enriching dogs’ lives easier for busy pet parents,” says PAW5 Co-Founder, Dennis O’Donnell. “We designed the Rock ‘N Bowl to create enriching opportunities for dogs to problem solve and grow, but in a way that fits into families’ busy schedules. ”


Food, food, everywhere.

Okay, so any time I see a new dog bowl with the intent of providing an enriching meal-time, while slowing your dog down (we need all the help we can get), I’m instantly intrigued. And the Rock ‘N Bowl is a new bowl that we’ll add to our feeding time around here.

The design allows food to be poured directly into the top, as easy as a normal bowl, and then funnels it into a hidden compartment, requiring dogs to paw, nudge, and play their way through mealtime (that’s the challenging part!).

What I Love

  • The Rock ‘N Bowl is made in the USA
  • Compact – this bowl is no larger than your standard dog bowl
  • Was shipped in a cute little box with a great informational brochure and nice packaging (I’m a sucker for presentation!)
  • Uses BPA-free and phthalate-free plastic
  • Breaks down to three dishwasher-safe parts
  • Holds up to four cups of food
  • Comes in two great colors (which just so happen to be Denver Bronco colors: blue and orange – hopefully they don’t change them after this comment *wink, wink*)

Room for Improvement 

The only thing I noticed about this bowl, that could possibly be improved on, is the “escape” holes on the bottom which are slightly large (while Lola’s food is quite small) causing the kibble to fall out rather fast once Lola figured out she has to nudge/push the bowl to toss her food out.

The Rock ‘N Bowl retails for $29.95 and is available now for pre-orders through the PAW5 website


Enter to WIN one right now as we’re giving away a Rock ‘N Bowl to one lucky reader.

Pooch Party Packs Subscription Box | Review

Pooch Party Packs Subscription Box | Review |

I’m sure you’ve seen ’em around. And maybe have even ordered one for your pooch (or yourself).

Pooch Party Packs Subscription Box | Review |

Subscription boxes.

They’re all the rage and for good reason. Goodies delivered to your door filled with surprises. Because who doesn’t like getting mail? And trust me, your pups are no different – ours smelled the aromas wafting from the Pooch Party Packs box as soon as our FedEx lady dropped it at the front door. And opening it was like Christmas for these two.

Let’s get down to the nitty gritty. What was in the box?!

Pooch Party Packs Subscription Box | Review |

‘May Sweets Menu’

pride-bites-conePrideBites ice cream cone plush 

I was excited to see a PrideBites (great company!) toy in our box and although it’s no longer ‘living’, it was fun while it lasted. Plus, it resembled an ice cream cone which is perfect for summer.

CRACK Bar (cheesy bacon) from Bubba Rose Biscuit CompanyCrack_lo__07378.1405468911.1280.1280

I had to laugh when I saw these treats. They are a small, hard, breakable treat good for those mid-afternoon snacks ;). I liked these biscuit bars because I could break them into as big or small of a piece as I wanted. My only complaint was that there wasn’t more.

Puppy Scoops Ice Cream Mix (peanut butter flavor)VPSIC-2


This stuff is great! I’ve never seen this product but here’s the scoop (pun intended):

Add water > freeze > voila.

Lola and Rio LOVED this product and I’d buy it again if I found it in stores.




Ice Cream Cone by Multi-Pet

This little toy smells good and is Lola’s new fave. It was actually quite hilarious because Lola started licking it versus chewing on it when I first handed it over. And while it says for tough chewers, I always make sure they’re in my sight with the toy because I don’t want them to break off and swallow a piece. It’s soft, latex material is good for their teeth and gums and Lola enjoys just gnawing on it.

Locomotion Sweet Apple Pet Treats 

These are a small crunchy cookie-like treat that honestly smell good enough for me to eat. Lola and Rio, of course, loved them. I don’t have very picky taste testers here, ha. dog_cookie_2012_l

I have to say, I’ve received a few different subscription boxes and this one had quality products in it, they feature and support a small business in every box (Locomotion treats) and I adored the ice cream theme. Well thought out.

Lola’s name was even wrote with marker on the front of her box, so it made a little more personal. For me, of course. I’m sure she didn’t even notice ;).

A little more about the company

  • Family-owned and operated by a husband and wife team. Kudos.
  • They have a sheltie (or two or three?). Bonus points. (I grew up with Shelties)

I also took it upon myself to look up what it would cost me to buy everything in this pack, and everything separate more than the cost of the box – so overall, it was a great value. Thanks, Pooch Party Packs!

Wondercide Review & Giveaway

Wondercide (Natural Flea & Tick) Review and Giveaway |

Wondercide (Natural Flea & Tick) Review and Giveaway |

A while back we gave up chemical-filled flea & tick treatments for the sheer reason that they scare me. I started researching a lot about flea and tick treatments and the results were rather disturbing. Finding a natural solution though has not been simple. We even started a list of natural flea and tick preventatives that I’ve tried (and work).

Well we’ve found a new (new to us anyways) solution from Wondercide. Read about our honest review of each item and enter to win this package for yourself and your pup!

evolv-wondercideWondercide Evolv™ Flea & Tick Spray

Being that we live in Colorado, we deal with ticks all the time. Fleas aren’t as much of a problem but you can still get them. We’ve used this flea and tick spray before going on hikes or anywhere they may be exposed. While it doesn’t repel all insects all the time – it works just as well as those harsh chemical-filled products, so I’ll take this natural option in a heartbeat. Lola and Rio don’t care for the smell or being sprayed but they tolerate.

It comes in a 16 oz container with a spray bottle and has an okay scent (heavy smell of cedarwood, someone mentioned it smelling like a clean gerbil cage, and I think that’s pretty spot-on). What I liked about this vs. other natural options I’ve used is that it’s not too oily and is easy to spray on your dog in a few squirts (and leaves a nice sheen) and lasts a couple days.

It also has a mosquito repellent in it which has come in handy because approximately 9 million little skeeters hatched in the past week in Colorado with all the rain we’ve been getting. It directs to apply every 2-3 days or as needed to kill and repel fleas, ticks, and mosquitos (can use daily if needed). I would buy this product again and think this will be our go-to flea & tick product.

(Note: I don’t think Wondercide is calling this product Evolv anymore but just “Flea & Tick Spray” as I couldn’t find Evolv on their website)

Wondercide Fresh™ Deodorizing Spraywondercide_fresh-deodorizing-spray-dogs-4oz_main_225x225

Honestly, I did not care for this deodorizing spray. It does not have a fresh scent to me and Lola and Rio literally rolled around on the carpet trying to get it off when I sprayed it on them. It must be the neem scent no one cared for because lavender and lemongrass were further down on the ingredients list and typically smell amazing. Also, even after the scent faded, I didn’t notice either dog smelling any better than they did pre-deodorizing spray. Skip.


Insect_Repellent_Cedar_72dpi_600x600__98378.1422137762.1280.1280Insect Repellent (for people and pets!)

I liked this product. It’s in a small, 2.7 oz container but since I don’t use insect repellent all that often it should last me a while. I’ve only actually used this on myself as I’ve been using the bigger bottle for Lola and Rio. The scent is very similar to the Flea & Tick spray. It’s small enough you could keep it in your purse or dog bag (What? You don’t have a dog purse?) so you don’t forgot to bring it when you need it most.





Other great selling points for Wondercide: 

  • Made in U.S.A.
  • No Toxic Chemicals
  • Founded in 2008 by dog lover, Stephanie Boone

7 Must-Have Products for Your Puppy

7 Must-Have Products for Your Puppy

7 Must-Have Products for Your Puppy

It’s been a while since we’ve had a puppy in the house, but looking back there were several must-have items that made our life that much easier.

I’ll never forget the first time we brought Lola home and in less than 24 hours, she had diarrhea in the only room that had new light carpet (amateur move on our part) – twice, plus peed on the floor a few times. Incase you’ve forgotten, puppies pee just about every 30 minutes. Or at least it seems that way and I can assure you I’m not too far off.

As you can imagine, paper towels were a necessity, which brings me to our list:

paper-towels-spray1. Paper towels + pet stain and odor remover spray

A true necessity. That little puddle of pee seems not so small once you tear off three paper towels and then find yourself going back for more paper towels at least two times. And I highly recommend a pet stain/odor remover spray. Followed by a shampooing after your pup is potty trained. Or wood floors.


2. Poochie Bells

Some of you may be asking yourself, “What are Poochie Bells?”. Well…they’re a potty training doorbell for your pup. We used them with Lola and Rio and they worked like a charm.

Before we would go outside, we would tap Lola’s paw on the bell and immediately run her outside. We did that every single time we went outside. A week later? She rang the bell by herself. Hearing that bell was like music to my ears. A week later, she was completely potty trained. I kid you not. Rio on the other hand, well – I guess boys are more difficult. Lola took about two to three weeks before she was completely accident-free.

And they’re even great post potty training because no matter where you’re at in the house, your dog can get your attention by ringing the bell. Not to mention they have the CUTEST designs and my favorite, the premium leather.

These are just a few of their many designs, check out the Poochie Bells website for more!


3. Dog Crate

We bought a large crate, or kennel, when Lola was a puppy and let her grow into it. It was packed with blankets (all of which are now shredded) and it was her own cozy little place. I’m sure this prevented MANY accidents as she would refuse to pee in her crate. Besides being challenging at times, Lola was really an easy puppy.

4. Training Treats

Since training is a constant activity with dogs it’s always nice to have a bag or two (or five) of small, soft training treats. I personally bring treats on walks with me when I want to work on heeling or any type of training.

leather leash5. Leash/Collar/Harness

This is obvious. But they are a necessity. We prefer to use a standard 6 ft. leather leash – they last forever. Don’t even get me started on collars; I may have a slight obsession.

6. Toys, Toys, Toys

Puppies will be puppies. And by that, I mean they’re bound to chew up something of yours. To prevent that, give them their own things to chew on. Life for a puppy is really about what you can chew on and what you can’t. One of our favorites? Our Kong’s; endless entertainment and one of the only toys that the dogs haven’t destroyed.

7. ID Tag & Microchip

This is a great reminder, especially after catching Turbo, a stray dog I found last month. The tag saved me a trip to a vet or shelter to see if he was microchipped (and got him home that much faster). Microchipping and making your dog wear a tag ensures that if anything ever should happen, they have a much greater chance of making it home.

Notice I didn’t list puppy pads in here? Yeah…name one time you came home and that pad wasn’t shredded in a million pieces. They were more work than they were worth. For us anyways.

Now…of course you need a good food, bowl to eat and drink out of along with a trusty vet, but what else can you think of that your pup needs?

Soggy Doggy Super Shammy

Soggy Doggy Super Shammy Review -

When I was contacted to do a review about Soggy Doggy’s new Super Shammy I was pumped because we already have a Soggy Doggy “doormat” which is conveniently in the back of our SUV. Needless to say, we love it. 

I’ll be honest, the only thing keeping me from getting one sooner was the price – they are a little on the steep side (or so I thought) and it wasn’t until we received our Chuck & Don’s bucks that I bought one. And I wish I would’ve sooner. The mat itself is about a year old and looks brand new. None of the little things have came out, got snagged, or anything like you’d see on a cheap substitute rug. You pay for what you get and this mat is worth every penny.

But we’re here to talk about this shammy – a newer product of theirs.

Anyone else get this look when you whisper the word bath and get out the shampoo?

Soggy Doggy Super Shammy Review -

Sorry, Lola. You’re cute, but I’ve gotta try out this new shammy.

Soggy Doggy Super Shammy Review -

This shammy works much better than a traditional towel. It dried both Lola and Rio. And I can tell you it holds a ton of water because it was quite heavy after both dogs were dried.

The main difference I noticed was how dry the dogs were after using the Soggy Doggy Shammy. Usually it takes a while after patting them off with a regular towel for them to dry completely but not with this!

Tip: these also work great to clean off wet and muddy paws (when your mat is being used in the back of your car).

Now, please let me entertain you with adorable pics of these two hams:

Soggy Doggy Super Shammy Review -

You’ve probably figured this out, but I’m pretty particular about my dog products and you won’t see something on this site that I don’t support or believe is a good product. Just thought I’d throw that out there.

You have to check out the Soggy Doggy story. My favorite part:

Gold Paw Fleece Jacket Review

I think I’ve found my favorite dog jacket, ever. And I’ve got a good assortment to compare it to.

The first time I saw a Gold Paw dog jacket was in a Chuck & Don’s Pet Food Outlet. And because I have to touch pretty much everything I see in any store, the first thing I noticed about the Gold Paw fleece was how dang soft it was! Seriously, even my own fleece jacket has nothin’ on Lola’s…

Gold Paw Fleece Jacket Review |

Isn’t the sunflower color stunning? As you can tell, I’m on a yellow kick. The collar, the jacket…

Did I mention we’re giving one of these away? Keep reading. But first – why you need this Gold Paw fleece dog jacket in your life:

  • Fits like a glove (we used Gold Paw’s measuring guide and it was extremely accurate)
  • Super soft (do they make these for people, I think I need a jacket, too)
  • Comes in a variety of sizes. Including medium-dog sizes which always seems hard to fit. Gold Paw offers a range of 13 sizes from Chihuahua to Great Dane (and even custom sizing).
  • The fleece does not bead-up after washing. You know how it goes. It looks good for the first couple wears, then starts getting tiny little balls of fabric that build up and you’re constantly “plucking” them off.
  • Stretches without losing its shape
  • Easy to put on and pull off
  • Warm and stylish without being over-the-top
  • Made in the USA

You have my word! Gold Paw Series’ Stretch Fleece is an awesome year-round popover jacket. Especially in Colorado. All last week it was 70 degrees. And yesterday? It snowed. Hence why we broke out this jacket!
