One of the biggest expenses for pet parents is food. Here’s a chance to WIN a year’s worth of your favorite dog food or cat food for your fur kid! Just enter the contest HERE using your email OR login using Facebook to enter now.

Prize: One winner will be awarded a gift card for $1,000 to be used for one year’s worth of pet food.

I like that this giveaway is for a gift card rather than one specific brand of pet food. That way you can choose what works for your pet…and there’s probably even enough to donate some to your favorite rescue group or animal shelter if you wish!

In the Kitchen with Daisy and PAW5 Rock ‘N Bowl Puzzle Feeder Dog Bowl

Kitchen Daisy PAW5

What do I love collecting & using more than just about anything? Colorful bowls and kitchen gadgets! Just when I feel like my collection is complete, I find ‘just one more’ I didn’t know I needed but now can’t live without.

My latest discovery is actually a very special bowl for Daisy. Thanks to our new blog sponsor, the dog-loving folks over at PAW5, we’ve been trying out their new Rock N’ Bowl. It’s part bowl, part puzzle and ALL kinds of fun! What looks like a standard bowl is actually a unique puzzle feeder that will have your dog thinking, problem solving and having fun all at once.

Filling the PAW5 bowl

By adding environmental enrichment and mental stimulation to mealtime, you can turn a boring, routine part of your dog’s day into a fun brainteaser. Just pour food directly into the top (as easy as a normal bowl), the food runs through a hidden compartment, and your dog will paw, nudge, and play his or her way through mealtime!

Daisy Puzzle Dog Bowl

Daisy has so much fun playing with her food in this thing that it was difficult to get good photos to show you. Here’s a quick video of Daisy and her PAW5 bowl in action. No sound effects were added…that’s all her, crunching away in regular speed AND slow motion! Check it out:

In addition to being super fun and engaging for your pup, the PAW5 bowl is also designed with pet parents in mind. It’s dishwasher-safe and BPA-free; made in the USA and holds up to 4 cups of food, for any meal and any breed. Because PAW5 is committed to sustainability, they use a manufacturing process that results in almost zero waste. The bowl comes in your choice of blue or orange. You can visit the PAW5 website here to learn more and get one for your favorite fur kid. Also be sure to follow PAW5 on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for great dog photos, special offers and info about future giveaways.
