Ruby loves to bring her American Dog Flyin Fish Toy to the beach

Ruby's top five (non-food) picks for dogs this holiday season.

Ruby's new favorite toys are Flyin' Fish (shown above) and Tommy Turtle by American DogAmerican Dog is dedicated to building 100% USA made dog products and sharing them with you and your pups. They took military and outdoor gear know-how and injected it into doggy innovations to build high quality, long-lasting products. These toys are extremely durable and make for a great game of fetch or tug-o-war. They come in fun colorful characters like Flyin' Fish, Da Bone, Big Red Lips, Tommy Turtle, Lucky Dog Star, and Double Trouble. Flyin' Fish and Tommy Turtle are both waterproof and lightweight and joined us for several fun trips to the beach this fall.

Ruby reviews Natural Paws Ditch the Itch for Holidays, Hounds  Hot Buys Giveaway


Ruby has some auto-immune issues that causes all kinds of itchiness. Fortunately, we found Ditch the Itch by Natural Paws, which works wonders. Natural Paws creates effective, holistic remedies to relieve common ailments in dogs, keeping paws, skin, and ears healthy and clean. Ditch the Itch is a non-steroid, non-drug remedy that works on contact. Ruby used to wake up in the middle of the night to scratch. But now, we spray Ditch The Itch on her sensitive areas at bed time and as a result, she sleeps more soundly and so do we. Whether is is troubled paw pads, skin irritations, or allergic inflammation, Natural Paws offers natural organic solutions that sooth and heal.

Teckelklub makes quality winter coats, deluxe beds, and wellness products. Ruby tried The Sierra winter dog coat (pictured above). This fantastic coat is made from high quality 100% waterproof and breathable fabrics that do not trap moisture and provide protection for a range of activities in any weather condition. The jacket is also lined with fleece for extra warmth and durability. Additionally, The Sierra provides great night time protection with highly visible 3M brand reflective piping trim. It is also quick and easy to take on and take off and most importantly, fits Ruby perfectly!

Urban Sprawl - Inside
Ruby new favorite bed is Ruffwear's Urban Sprawl, a plush, indoor/outdoor dog bed that is perfect for camping under the stars or movie night at home. The two-sided mattress provides the option of a soft or firm sleeping surface. The cover is made from a durable micro-suede sleeping surface that is soft, but stands up to wear and tear and cleans easily with a shake. The waterproof, non-skid bottom creates a moisture barrier and keeps the bed stable on slippery surfaces.
