sooo.. yeah. like i said, i may be MIA. i will try to post when i can! but, since it may be hard to do any life-casting while getting ready for all these trips, i will utilize these prep days to post reviews and giveaways that i have on tap.  like this one!

dynamo dog treats by cloud star recently sent penny & randy some treats to try out. i can’t say they will be reviewing them.. because, really, they’ll eat anything i throw their way! i will be doing the review, they will be doing the taste testing. it’s a good arrangement. i don’t like to eat dog treats and they don’t know how to use a keyboard. works out well.

dynamo dog treats aren’t your typical canine treats. they are functionally formulated for a dog’s specific needs and infused with vitamins, minerals, fruits, and herbs to help support joint function, digestion, and skin & coat health.

i really like these treats because we are VERY concerned with what we feed our dogs. we use blue buffalo dog food and are always cautious when purchasing other brands for treats. we make sure they are the highest quality and healthiest choice. marshall and i take good care of our own bodies, it only makes sense that we take care of penny & randy the same way we do ourselves. we recently purchased them antlers per our friends’ kristen & rory’s suggestion. they are a MUCH better alternative to rawhide.

anyway, back to these awesome, healthy treats!

the bags are all clearly labeled with what each flavor is along with what health benefit it is geared towards. there are two for hip & joint (bacon & cheese and chicken), one for the tummy (pumpkin ginger), and one for skin & coat (salmon.)

all of the treats are grain-free and all-natural. they are gluten-free and made in the USA by a family-owned company.

the hip & joint treats have added glucosamine and chondroitin. we give this to penny and randy in a pill form, we are very concerned about hip & joint health–especially in randy, since he’s a long dog.

the tummy treats have added probiotics and i thought it was interesting they included ginger–something i have added into my own diet for digestive health. it’s just as important to take care of your pups’ tums as it is to take care of your own!

the skin & coat treats have added salmon oil and vitamin E. i use vitamin E oil on all my scars, so it makes sense that they added this to the skin & coat treat. it’s very important for all that fur that sheds around the house to be in tip-top condition ;)

i cracked open the bacon & cheese flavor for the kiddos to try today. they (not so) patiently waited while i took a couple photos.

as expected, they gobbled these things up and kept begging for more. not a big surprise, i told you they’d eat anything. however, i do love that these treats are the soft kind rather than the crunchy kind. randy likes softer treats better. his favorite food is bread… or larabars. (click that link if you haven’t read the story.. it’s hilarious!)

i used the treats for them to practice their catching skills. they are on point!

she nabbed that treat mid-air!

you can see randy setting up to chomp on the treat coming his way. you better believe he caught it!

We have a 10 month old doberman pup who has stolen my heart. I am on vacation right now and we had to kennel him and I actually cried for 2 days. Insert crazy dog lady joke now. I would love to surprise him with some high quality treats when we get home!

Erin May 7, 2013 at 6:47 pm

I have two crazy Dalmatians, Rylie and Vera. Rylie flew here (Vegas) the whole was from
Pennsylvania when she was 10 weeks old!

I have a little mini golden doodle and he always gets so excited when I come home from college. Always look forward to it.

Kellie May 7, 2013 at 8:27 pm

We have a chocolate lab pup, Rookie ( ck out the hash tag #rookieoftheyear on IG ) who is the sweetest pup ever! Don’t tell our bulldog Chloe ( um, yeah, hash tag #chloegrace ) because she is super jealous.

Debbie (Accidently Delish) May 7, 2013 at 10:10 pm

oh my gosh, what don’t i love about my pup. that dog is seriously my second half. she has been by my side through so many hard times in my life and i swear she’s a better friend than any human friend i have. and i have some pretty amazing friends! she actually has really bad knees and we give her treats with glucosamine in them, so i would actually really love to try the joint treats! because let’s be real. my dog LOVES treats!

We have a dachshund/pit bull mix and he’s a cutie! My favorite thing about him is that he “protects me” when I sleep. Even if I’m just taking a nap, he waits at the foot of the bed until I wake up. Now he’s a total wimp, so I doubt it would help in an emergency situation, but at least he’s faithful!

Kristen@goodngoodforya May 8, 2013 at 6:57 am

My dog is Spenser, the Boston Terrier. (extra cool points for anyone who gets the reference) My favorite thing about him is how much he loves my daughter. She’s his favorite person in the world!

We have a Weimaraner named Utley. I love that all he ever wants to do is cuddle and just be close to anyone! Even though he is a big dog, he thinks he’s a little lap dog.

Dana @Muscles, Miles, and Meals May 8, 2013 at 12:25 pm

I have 2 miniature schnauzers, 1 siberian husky, and a hound/shepherd mix…..i love that they all get along and want to be on my lap at all times:)

Betty May 8, 2013 at 3:46 pm

Love my 4 and how they bring out the crazy in Eachother!

Lisa May 8, 2013 at 7:50 pm

Your pups are so cute!!

Tasha May 8, 2013 at 9:06 pm

We have an eight year old Weimaraner. She is incredibly well behaved, wonderful with our kids, a great protector and just truly a part of the family. I can’t imagine life without her.

marisa May 9, 2013 at 12:58 am

I better enter for Ollie to win. He has to have grain free stuff so these would be perfect. We love that Ollie came trained when we adopted him and already knows shake, dance, and sit and will shake before we even ask if he hears the treat can being opened. I can’t wait for you to meet Ollie and for him to meet your pups… a few more months.

I have a 13 year old Shiba Inu and I absolutely adore her. She is simply the best dog I’ve ever owned (all her naughty behaviors included)! But she refuses to take supplements so I’m hoping to win these to try..

Janetha May 13, 2013 at 10:15 am

i love shibas!

Kittie Kat May 12, 2013 at 10:51 am

Oops! Didn’t realize this was over :-(

Congrats to the winner!
