National Donut Day for Dogs

Happy National Donut Day everybody! (I know that it’s supposed to be spelled “doughnut” but that looks funny to me). Anyway, I hope you are all celebrating with a sweet treat, but if you don’t have a place near you that makes pet-friendly donuts, not to worry.

Head on over HERE and grab a couple of Donutz for Dogs by ZippyPaws. They are a squeaky plush no-stuffing dog toy made to look EXACTLY like a donut! They come in Strawberry, Blueberry, and even Chocolate made especially for dogs.

Whatever you’re up to, we hope you and the fur kids have a SWEET day!

Swell Water Bottle for Dog Lovers

You might already know about the super cool water bottles made by S’well, they come in loads of cool colors and patterns, but did you know that there is a very special edition made just for dog lovers?

With this exclusive Bark & Co metallic blue bottle, you’ll begin to think of water as H2-Whoa! (It’s that cool.) Made in collaboration with the awesome aquaphiles at S’well, this thoroughly modern metal bottle is the ideal vessel for your precious fluids. The strong body is covered in classic Bark & Co doodles by Dave Coverly, and thanks to the double-walled vacuum sealed construction, it keeps liquids hot or cold for 24 hours.

Swell Bark Water Bottle

Excellent for quenching your own thirst, whether with water, coffee, or something stronger, the opening is wide enough to fit ice cubes, but narrow enough to keep you from spilling all over yourself. But it doesn’t stop there. Just imagine how envious the other dogs at the park will be when they see you pour your pooch a crystal clear pool of fresh water from this beautiful bottle!

Because our readers are the BEST, the BarkShop folks want to give your dog a FREE gift with any order you place over at BarkShop.com. Just use BarkShop promo code: WOOFWOOFMAMA at checkout and a free bully stick will be added to your order. Head on over to the BarkShop and snag one of these S’well water bottles while you can.

Cool stuff for dogs

5 Reasons Why We Love BarkBox + Coupon Code for Your Lucky Pup!

If you follow us on Instagram you already know that one of Daisy’s favorite things is her BarkBox subscription. We love the huge variety of toys & treats and especially enjoy the fun of discovering what the monthly theme is. This month’s box was Bark Ball…filled with baseball-themed goodies and perfect for Spring. The toys and treats are super high quality, creative, and will last til the next box arrives, even though we usually share with pals!

While we eagerly await the next box, we’ve put together a list with some of the reasons we love BarkBox. We’ve also have a special BarkBox coupon code so that all of YOU can try it too!

5 Reasons Why We Love BarkBox

  1. Quality Treats & Edibles, customizable for dogs with allergies. Every BarkBox is wheat, corn and soy free, so if your pup has those allergies you are all set! They also have a special allergy-friendly BarkBox for pups who are allergic to beef, chicken and turkey. The edible goodies in this BarkBox will not contain any of the above ingredients to help keep your pup’s sensitive tummy happy. You can also specify that your dog has allergies in your BarkBox profile.
  2. Super Unique Dog Goodies you won’t find elsewhere. Each delivery includes 4-6 high-quality, full-size items so there is always enough to put away and save for later, keeping the fun going all month long until the next box arrives. And the folks at BarkBox are genius when it comes to picking items for each box. These aren’t just the same old toys and treats you see every day…many are made exclusively for BarkBox meaning you and your dog get to discover unique and exciting new goodies each month.
  3. Satisfaction Guaranteed, Scout’s Honor! They actually have a customer guarantee called “Scout’s Honor”. If your pup doesn’t like at a treat or toy you’ve received, if it’s faulty or completely the wrong size for your dog, BarkBox will replace it for free. Just email and they will help make sure your dog is 100% happy! In over 4 years of getting BarkBox, we’ve only ever had 1 time we needed to contact their customer service with a problem and were SO impressed with the fast and personal assistance we received.
  4. Helping Pet Shelters and Animal Rescue Groups. 10% of all BarkBox profits goes to shelters and together with their BarkGood program, BarkBox works with over 3,000 shelters and rescues around the U.S. and Canada. Another paw-tastic reason to LOVE getting BarkBox!
  5. Customizable for Small-Large Dogs + for Heavy Chewers. We already mentioned how you can get the treats customized for your dog’s food allergies, if needed. But we also love that the toys and other items in your BarkBox can be customized for your dog’s size, because a 5lb dog and a 50+lb dog need and want different toys. And, if your dog is a toy destroyer, you can let BarkBox know and your dog will receive toys designed with heavy chewers in mind.

Bonus reason: BarkBox coupon codes for friends. BarkBox has been GREAT about arranging for us to hookup our friends and readers so you can try it, too! Use the BarkBox promo code WOOFWOOFMAMA at BarkBox.com and get an extra FREE month added to any order.
