Hey Summer…we’ve missed you!
Memorial Day Weekend….the unofficial start of summer and all things fun! We trudge through winter just waiting for this weekend to fire up the grills, open the pools and dust off the beach chairs. Your dog has also been trudging through winter waiting to stretch his legs and romp in the sunshine, right? Make this weekend as fun for him as it is for you. We’ve rounded up 5 great ways to help him celebrate the big weekend!
Indulge in Yummy Treats
How adorable are these watermelon bakery goodies? Made from rye flour, molasses, canola oil, baking powder, and peanut butter, they’re also packed with wholesome goodness. Because we all know that every good party starts with good food!
No bait required for these rubber retrieving and floating fish from Ruff Dawg! They’re perfect for the yard, the pool or the beach. With four bright color options, they’re always easy to spot. Depending on your pup’s size, choose a minnow (6 inches) or the larger flying fish (9.5 inches).
This perennial favorite will never go out of style! It’s an absolute necessity (and arm and back saver) for the dog owner who plays a lot of fetch (can you imagine if you had to bend down and pick up the ball every time?)! But did you know that there’s also a glow in the dark version? Check out the Chuck it Pro LX. It has a high-intensity LED flashlight to light your path and a reflective ball that can easily be spotted up to 50 yards away. Nighttime play just got a lot more fun!
Splash and Swim
Water dogs love Katie’s original bumpers, which are awesome for floating, tugging and fetching. We also love that they’re made from recycled plastic, dishwasher safe and made in the USA. Also check out Katie’s mini squeegee, which has a muffled squeak for those with sensitive ears.
Don't Let Ticks Ruin the Party
Seriously, there is NOTHING fun about a tick bite, so please remember to take precautions. There are wonderful products available that are both organic and non-organic. Seresto collars are a great choice because they offer 8 months of protection. The collars are also super easy to apply and are non-greasy. For those who prefer an organic option, we love Wondercide Natural Flea & Tick Control. It harnesses the safe power of cedar and lemongrass to kill fleas and ticks on contact. It also leaves their coat shiny and brilliant (and you may have seen them on Shark Tank!)
From all of us at Hot Diggity…we hope you and your pups have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! And most importantly, we'd like to thank all of those who have served our country and given their lives for our freedom. Thank you!
