Dog Tag Art! 

Today I’ll be reviewing a fantastic company that creates super cool and creative dog tags. They can be a design they have made or you can upload and create a design you made and it can be out on the dog tag! How cool is that?! 

This company is Dog Tag Art (@dogtagart on Instagram). Go check them out

Below are the 4 designs I picked out for my pups. I did indeed pick sports teams but they have plenty of other options and ideas! 


The Pet ID Connector is super amazing and easy to use. Makes putting it on a collar a breeze! They provided some different colour options too. 

Plus they have a glow in the dark Tag silencer that goes around the collar. No noise so when dogs play and run around you don’t get bothered by a clink sound. 

Here is Kai my German Shepherd with her shepherd tag! It stands it nicely on her darker fur, I LOVE it! 


Here is Wrangler sporting lots of matching Michigan gear. But you can see how cool the tag is here too. 

These are AMAZING QUALITY and I highly recommend them to anyone with a dog!

Fresh Wave Cleaning Products

Have you been searching for a fantastic cleaning product? Do you have pets? What about child? Then please keep reading to find out how amazing Fresh Wave products are! 

I have 2 dogs and an infant so my house is always a mess it seems. Plus the dogs bring in dirt and end up smelling terrible it seems between walks and playing in the backyard. 

My son who of course is crawling around and trying to walk can now knock over plastic cups from the coffee table, climbs on the dogs, and does manage to have accidents that leak from his diaper (pee typically, luckily). 


The first product I’ll go over is the fresh pod. We have put this on our trash bin lid and it has helped keep the dirty diaper smell from our kitchen and house. It’s amazing and I don’t need to worry more about bad smells when the trash bin gets opened. 


The odor removing spray is GREAT for spraying daily in my house to keep it smelling fantastic! They also have a travel size so you can keep them around your house or buy full size versions for each room and use as needed. It makes my house smell amazing! Doesn’t require much either and the house is smelling good again! 


This odor removing candle smells so good. When lit, it smells even better. I highly recommend this to anyone, especially pet owners! Keep t in a safe spot where pets and children cannot reach it or knock it over though. 


I’ll be using this odor removing pet shampoo on my two dogs this weekend (or well at least the little one) but it smells phenomenal! The even better side is that it gets rid of odors caused by skunks. How rad is that?! 

These items are all HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and I will be sure to continue to purchase and use these items. I love them and I think everyone who comes over appreciates the use of them here so our house smells good all the time. 

Indoor Games and Activities for your pup 

So with winter approaching here currently I’m coming up with ways to keep my pups entertained and thought I would share some with you. 
Muffin Tin Treat Search: 

Basically this is where you take a 6 or 12 count muffin pan and hide treats in about half of them and cover with tennis balls. You then let your pup sniff them out and move the tennis balls to find their reward (the treat!).
Red Light – Green Light

The version of this for your dog would be to give the command for “let’s go” to move and then “sit” or “down” when you want them to stop. You can do this on or off leash depending on how well they know and obey the command. This helps your dog to learn that while walking when you stop they are required to stop as well. 
Hide and Seek

Be sure to keep this simple for your dog at first. This can go a few ways though. You can put your dog in a different room and keep them in a “stay” and when you want them to find you call their name or say “find me”. The other way this can work is to have a friend or family member hold them while you hide and then give the command for them to find you. By keeping it simple I mean hiding behind a curtain, under a blanket with an arm or leg visible, or something similar before making it more difficult for your dog to find you when you hide. 
Wait for the TREAT

This is where you get your dog to go to a “sit” or “down” and put a treat on their head, about, or foot and make them wait until you give them the command to get it. It keeps them from moving but also takes time for them to learn. Don’t make your dog hold the treat for more than about .5-1 second at first and as they learn that you can grow the time that they must wait for the treat. 
Grooming

Okay so this isn’t so much of a game as it is a training tool. This is helpful for dogs who don’t like baths (my dog simply HATES getting a bath). You get them into the tub and get them to “sit” and “stay” and wait anywhere from 1-10 minutes and then reward them with a treat. Don’t instantly make them wait extended period of times. Slowly build up to it. Get them to understand the water isn’t always going to be turned on or in the tub whenever you do this. It will help them get more comfortable being in the tub for a bath. 
I hope you enjoy these activities for your dog indoor. I’ll be sure to write another article on more ideas and games for your dog to do indoors. Whether it’s too hot or too cold outside your dog requires mental and physical stimulation. 
Bones and chew toys are good ways to keep your dog from also chewing anything inside they shouldn’t be. They usually chew stuff they shouldn’t due to boredom or not having their own toy to chew.
