Unique Protein Diets That Benefit Your Dog’s Wellbeing

Have you ever thought about adding a unique protein to your dog’s diet? Here’s why you should, and a few novel proteins to try!

Proteins are the building blocks of life, and its importance in your pet’s life is just as great as it is in yours. Proteins play a vital role in every biological process – the amino acids from which proteins are made are what make up a major proportion of our pet’s cells. When you think about it that way, you understand the importance of the right proteins in your dog’s diet.

Dogs love the taste of meat, and by offering your pet protein from multiple sources, mealtime is made even more enjoyable and tasty. Whether it’s in the kibble, sprinkled on top as a mixer, or given as a treat, unique protein sources can be a part of your pet’s complete and balanced diet.

What can you do to ensure your pet has a healthy, palatable diet? You can start by exposing your dog to a variety of unique proteins. And what dog wouldn’t prefer a high-quality meal packed with exclusive proteins, full of nutritional benefits, exceptional taste and delectable aromas. That’s why Merrick has a complete line of dry and wet formulas that showcase a host of novel proteins.

A mix of unique proteins in your dog’s diet can also help him maintain a shiny coat and keep skin healthy, thanks to the Omega fatty acids it contains. Every protein source contains different levels of amino acids that are broken down and used for all aspects of your dog’s growth and development. But not all proteins are created equal – some are better for pets than others. And you want to make sure your pooch enjoys the benefits of a high-quality diet rich in animal-derived protein.

A clean dog is groovy, baby! Here’s your chance to win a Groovy Glove™, the handy new way to keep your dog’s paws clean.

You know where your dog’s been in your house… all you have to do is follow the dirty paw prints! If he doesn’t know how to wipe his feet at the door, the task of keeping his pads clean fall to you. And we all know that paws are the toughest spot to clean. They’re always on the ground, and whatever he steps in gets brought into your house and on your furniture. You need a handy paw-cleaning solution that’s easy to use and always accessible – just like the Groovy Glove. And to celebrate the Kickstarter campaign launching today, we’ve got THREE to giveaway in our Groovy Glove Giveaway!

What makes the Groovy Glove so groovy? This six-fingered glove reaches into places that are hard to get at (like your dog’s paws), and captures the dirt in its microfibers. And what’s with the six-finger design anyway? That’s so you can wear the Groovy Glove on either hand and on either side. Made with a high-quality microfiber that holds over 600% of its weight in dirt, mud and water, you’ll also be glad to hear that it’s machine washer and dryer safe. Plus it hangs on your door handle so it’s right there when you need it.

Oscar and I got one to try out. He was happy to get a foot massage with this super softglove, and I was happy to see all of the dirty come off of his paws. I also used it around my house and in the car (after I threw it in the washer for a quick clean.) I may have to get another one for I have a Groovy Glove at all times at hand!

5 Spooky Smart Safety Tips For Your Halloween Hound
Oct 27, 2016 - 2:44 PM - by Petguide.com

Keep your dog safe, happy and calm during the spooky festivities this Halloween.

Halloween will soon be here, and while we know that it’s all in good fun, our furry friends may not. To us, trick-or-treaters are expected and we are prepared with candy and jack-o’-lanterns. Our pooches aren’t expecting the doorbell to ring repeatedly for hours. Dogs only accept what we have exposed them to at a young age, so it’s natural for them to be afraid when the routine changes. Here are a few tips to keep your dog safe and happy during Halloween:

Long Walk: Before the kids in costume start patrolling the neighborhood, take your dog for a long walk. Get that extra energy out of their system before the mayhem begins. If your dog is tired, he will be less likely to react to the strangers approaching.

Ring the Bell!: A few days before Halloween, start ringing the doorbell or knocking on the door. Up until this point, they most likely associate the doorbell ringing with people coming into the house. This usually leads to the dog getting excited and worked up. If you break that association by constantly ringing when nobody is entering, they won’t be shocked on October 31. Essentially, you’re taking the Pavlov out of it (well, substituting barking for drooling)!

Costume Etiquette: If you are planning on dressing up your dog for the festivities, please prepare them. You can’t throw your pup into a fancy getup without warning and expect them to behave normally. Dogs who aren’t accustomed to costumes sometimes get anxious and nervous. Put the costume on briefly a few times a day to get hem used to it. Make a big fuss and use treats. And then, of course, post multiple pictures of your dog dressed as a taco on Facebook.

Boundary Safety: While preparing for your trick-or-treaters, prepare for your dog. Even if your dog is social and friendly, Halloween can be overwhelming. Kids in crazy costumes will make even the most well-balanced dog nervous (hey, kids in costume make ME nervous). If you have a dog door, lock it. Keep the dog in the house during witching hour. If they tend to be nervous, keep them in a different room or crate and try to designate a safe spot for them.
