Hope you have had a chance to check out the five prize packages in our first annual Holidays, Hounds and Hot Buys Gift Guide & Giveaway #houndsandholidays! The giveaway launched November 25 and runs through December 9. You can enter on each of the participating blogs - Sarcastic Dog, The Broke Dog, My Life with Dogs, A Dog Walks into a Bar, Denise's Dog Dish and here on The Daily Pip - for more chances to win.
We have five giveaways based on different themes with prizes valued at almost $2,000. Ruby has the most important job of reviewing the Treats & Food Prize Package valued at $300 - it's a tough job but some dog has to do it!
Barkworthies' Elk Antlers are naturally shed by animals in the wild and feature a tough, tooth-scrubbing exterior and a chewy marrow interior dogs love. The chews are packed with beneficial vitamins and minerals, like zinc, calcium, and iron. They are also 100% digestible as well as additive, chemical, preservative, and odor free.
Because of her rough start in life, Ruby's teeth are not the best. We adopted her at age 7 or 8 and the damage had already been done. She tends to shy away from treats that are too tough to chew - it's like she doesn't quite have the confidence to tackle such big projects. And so I was pleasantly surprised to find that she LOVED Barkworthies Elk Antlers. The antler chew was the perfect size and texture for her and she tackled it with gusto!
Barkworthies is committed to providing premium natural dog treats and chews. Their treats and chews are all completely digestible, free of preservatives, chemicals or additives and most of their products contain only one ingredient. Although not part of the giveaway, Ruby also loves and recommends Barkworthies Sweet Potato Chips.
Caru Soft 'n Tasty Baked Bars are all natural, non-GMO ingredients, anti-biotic free, formulated without artificial colors, added hormones, animal by-products, or preservatives as well as grain, gluten, corn, and soy free. Each bar is packed with high quality protein for strong muscles and a healthy heart along with blueberries and cranberries for added vitamins and minerals. Additionally, these products are carefully prepared in small batches and naturally preserved.
Ruby sampled Caru Soft 'n Tasty Baked Duck Recipe Bars. Initially I thought they might be too big for her (I am a bit over-protective), but she managed quite well and absolutely loved them. Caru Soft 'n Tasty bars are available in beef, chicken, and duck. Caru also makes Soft 'n Tasty Baked Bites in a variety of flavors. These tasty treats received the 2016 Editor's Choice Awards by Pet Product News.
