Last summer I wrote about using Dr.Dobias' FleaHex as a form of natural flea control on my two dogs. It's a two part system that includes a shampoo for your dogs as well as a house spray to eliminate fleas indoors. Although we had a few minor run ins with fleas last summer, overall I was impressed enough with FleaHex that I bought it again this year. I've been using it on Fen as his sole means of flea preventative. I use it on Kit in conjunction with a topical flea preventative, doubling up on protection with him because he is very allergic to fleas. This summer, right before I stocked up on FleaHex, Dr.Dobias released a new product that is supposed to repel ticks. ...continue reading "TickHex Natural Tick Repellent First Impressions"
Happy Friday! You know what's awesome other than the fact that it's Friday? The dogs got their August Mini Monthly Dog Box of Awesome!

It's only $9.99 per month, making it the cheapest dog subscription box that we know of!

The other week I was walking Fen and something happened that made me sad, but at the same time totally reaffirmed my commitment to train my dog with positive based methods. I (so far) haven't written about this in depth, but both of my dogs, to one degree or another, are leash reactive. Kit walked awesomely on a leash until he was unfortunately attacked by a loose dog while I was walking him. After that he became reactive towards other dogs, mainly to large (strangely enough) brown dogs similar to the one who attacked him. ...continue reading "The Power of Positivity"
So I know it's August, and that the blog post title says July. We received our July Pet Treater box near the end of the month last month. Because we got it later than usual, and I already had posts planned for the last week of July, our July Pet Treater review is going up a bit late. We can pretend it's still July right? ...continue reading "July 2017 Pet Treater Review & Coupon Codes"
Yesterday, August 1st, we celebrated little Fen's 2nd birthday! Aw they sure do grow up fast.
It was a sweltering 90*f with high humidity so our planned trip to the park was out, but I think Fenrir had a fun day nonetheless. He spent most of the day playing and snuggling with his big brother Kit. Later in the day, once it started to cool off a bit, I made homemade pizza and the dogs had pupcake and doggy ice cream. ...continue reading "Happy 2nd Birthday Fenrir!"
How fast did July fly by? Hopefully everyone had an awesome month. I'm actually kind of glad the month is almost over because it means we're that much closer to the end of summer. I know a lot of people really enjoy the summer but I'm a cold weather creature. Oh, plus August 1st is our little Fenrir's birthday which I'm excited about. He'll be 2 tomorrow! ...continue reading "July 2017 Pet Favorites"
My beloved Kitsune has been having a bit of a rough summer this year. A couple of weeks ago I wrote about how he's been dealing with a lot of allergy issues. Kit's always had allergies ever since he was a tiny pup, but his environmental allergies this summer have been particularly bad. Near the end of June/beginning of July he developed quite a few hot spots that have luckily since healed. We've been working with a holistic vet to get Kit's allergies under control and I've been optimistic that his current treatments seem to really be helping. However, when it rains it pours and unfortunately Kit has recently had to deal with another health issue. ...continue reading "What Happened to Kit’s Tail"
Because of the risk of seeming a bit crazy, I debated not posting about these guys. But hey, we're all a little bit crazy right? Might as well embrace it. Last month a couple of new animal friends came to stay with us. They are snails. Yes...snails. ...continue reading "Our (Not so Creepy) Crawlies"
