Do you have an active dog or a pup who likes the outdoors? My rescue dog, Louis, absolutely loves to play outside. He likes really long walks. During the warmer weather, he prefers to bathe in the sun, roll on the grass, and chase all the squirrels, ground hogs, bunnies, and cats! He likes to play with them, but the little ones get scared of his enthusiasm! In the colder weather, you’ll see him jump in the snow and run on it like it’s the best day ever! But his love of the outdoors doesn’t stop from there. He has been with us to beaches, mountain hikes, and even bike rides. He has his own cart! So what do you give a dog who loves the outdoors that much? A camo DIY toy bone and the new Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Peak™ Wetlands Recipe™ with Chicken, Duck & Pheasant! Because after all, a dog who loves the outdoors need a nutrient-dense recipe to satisfy his instinctual cravings! Hah!
Broadening Louis’ palate with Nutrish PEAK
Some of us dog owners may have slipped on giving our dogs human food every now and then. Cough, cough (guilty). And while they are sure to love it, some can actually be bad for them or not have the right nutrients that dog needs. So if you are wanting to broaden his palate with delicious dog food – from the food guru, Rachael Ray, no less – then try the new Nutrish PEAK Wetlands Recipes! Available in both dry and wet food for dogs, they have the optimal protein levels appropriate for an active dog.
The Nutrish PEAK dry dog food is protein-rich and has nutrient-dense meats your dog will love. It contains 30% high-quality protein. And get this – 0% grains, glutens, or fillers. It also has no poultry by-product meal, artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. Louis wants none of that! So thankfully, Rachael Ray knows her thing. But it doesn’t stop from there. The Nutrish PEAK wet dog food is also made with real chicken and a combination of other protein-rich meat like beef, lamb, or even duck. I’m sure your dog will like one or all! Honestly, I couldn’t figure out which flavor Louis loves because every single time, his bowl is licked down to the last drop! Here are the flavors that my dog has tried:
- Peak™ Wetlands recipe with Chicken & Duck in Rustic Gravy – made with real chicken and combined with duck. You can actually see the real shredded chicken breast in there!
- Peak™ Open Range Recipe™ with Chicken & Beef in Hearty Gravy – like the Wetlands recipe but made with real chicken and protein-rich beef.
- Peak™ Wild Ridge™ Recipe with Chicken & Lamb in Savory Gravy – this one is combined with lamb. And guess what, all three works great as a tasty topper for the dry food too!
Last but not least, an added bonus for getting Louis his Nutrish dog food, we are able to donate to The Rachael Ray Foundation that helps other animals in need. As of December 2017, they have donated more than $23.5 million dollars to animal charities and organizations that do good for animals! So if you’d like your four-legged friend to try it too, make sure to check out the new Nutrish PEAK dog food at PetSmart.
Louis had a blast shopping there!
While there are several PetSmart locations everywhere, check the where to buy page before you go to make sure your local PetSmart has it now.
And definitely check out the coupon page to save you some dollars too!
Now, it’s time to make that DIY camo toy bone. Because when the weather outside is not so ideal for play, Louis plays with his toys indoors! When you have a playful and active dog, you know a toy may not last that long. So instead of buying every week, make one by yourself. It’s so easy to do and you can even recycle items you already have!
DIY Camo Toy Bone
What You Need
- Fabric of your choice – scraps of fabric are fine. You can even use old t-shirts or clothing that already has holes in them!
- Pillow fill or stuffing – if you have your dog’s old toys that are ready to be thrown out, save the filling inside. If none, pillow or poly fill is easy to find at craft or fabric stores.
- Squeakers – this is optional. These are those little plastic things inside dog’s squeaky toys. If you saved one from an old toy, great! You can insert that in the toy bone and reuse. If not, these are easy to find at craft stores or online.
- Sewing materials – needle, thread, and scissors!
- Start by cutting two pieces of dog bones in your fabric. You can use chalk to draw the shape and size you like in the back (the wrong side) of the fabric. Feel free to draw other shapes too. It can be a heart, star or whatever basic shape you can think of! Just cut two pieces of those to make our DIY toy bone!
- Now layer the two pieces of fabric together with both the right side of the fabric facing each other like so.
- Now start sewing them together about half an inch from the edge like an outline, leaving about 1-2 inches open.
- Next, with the opening, turn the fabric inside and out so that the right side of the fabric is now showing up. You can use a closed pen, bamboo stick or scissors (closed) to stretch out the edges or tips of your bone shape fabric.
- You can now fill up your bone with the pillow or poly filling. If you have a squeaker, now is the time to insert that too.
- Once your bone is filled, hand-sew the opening, and you’re done!
Wasn’t that easy?
