In only three weeks, 500 bloggers will converge on the Sheraton Music City for three days of learning sessions, networking, and meeting brands. It is exciting to have the opportunity to meet and talk to your favorite brand representatives. One of our first stops is going to be the awesome Silver Sponsors, PetSafe®. We have several brands that we are very loyal to and one of them is PetSafe. I’m going to share our three favorite products that are always found here on the bayou.
1. Pogo Plush® Slap Happy is paws down Bentley’s go-to toy. It has everything that he loves in a toy, shakable legs, soft to bite, stuffless, and a great squeaker. We call our toy “Slappy” and if you ask Bentley where Slappy is, he will go and get it. This is much easier now that we have two of them. Truthfully, we have had three but after almost half of a year being pulled, wrestled and squeaked Slappy #1 was killed. Santa Paws brought Slappy #2 and there was once again joy. The problem is both Bentley and Pierre love Slappy. (Bentley wants it stated that he did not murder Slappy #1, but is willing to testify against the guilty paw-ty)) There was only one thing that we could do. Pierre got his very own Slappy for his birthday. We also have the PetSafe Sheepskin Ball that squeaks and is the perfect size for Bentley. He walks throughout the house squeaking it in his mouth. I’m pretty sure that we will be buying two of these. (Pierre wants it stated that the ball was a gift for HIS birthday and Bentley hogs it) I need to talk with the PetSafe representatives to make sure there will be Slap Happy toys for years to come.
2. Our next favorite thing from PetSafe is something near and dear to Bentley’s heart. It’s their Indigo Fresh Floss Bones and Sticks. It will be hard to get him or Pierre away from that display. There are only a few treats that get those two inside during a barkfest. Indigo Dental Sticks is one of them. I can hold one up in the air for them to see and the squirrels, the neighbors, and the other dogs completely disappear. (They both want it stated that these other barkable things don’t actually disappear. It’s all about prioritizing) You can read our review of them here. Yes, it will be difficult to move them along from our PetSafe friends.
1. This last product is something new to us. It is the Gentle Leader Headcollar. I love it and Bentley is getting used to it. Let me just say it, Bentley can be a pistol to take for a walk sometimes. He uses his low center of gravity to pull me where he wants to go sniff. He also uses it when he decides that he has walked far enough. That will be when he stops. It’s like in the movie ‘Forrest Gump’ when he was running across the country. He just stops. I have tugged, pleaded, and fussed. He has pulled, sniffed, stopped, and won. Until now. A member of a Basset Hound group on LinkedIn recommended it to me. I’d become so frustrated with harnesses that rubbed his underarms or collars that gave me zero control. The Gentle Leader fits over his nose and behind his ears, but it is not a muzzle. If you can control the nose, you can control the Basset Hound. That is the trick to this Headcollar. I went from having very little control over our stops and starts to having a terrific walking partner after only a few lessons. (Bentley again wants it stated that he has always enjoyed our walks and I shouldn’t whine) We haven’t perfected it and I will be doing a more in-depth review after we have had more experience with the Gentle Leader.
So, if you are attending BlogPaws 2015, be sure to stop and meet the PetSafe brand. If you aren’t attending but are looking for an incredible dental stick, the perfect squeaky stuffless plush toy, or a collar that will help you take the lead, visit PetSafe. They carry an entire line of great pet products.
