Best Dog Treats for Puppies

Dog treats and chews will likely be a key part of a new puppy's daily intake. Treats and chews offer enjoyment and a great way to reward good behavior. With so many treats and chews on the market, deciding which ones are safe for your puppy can be challenging. Because puppies are still growing, choosing treats and chews that are safe while still offering enjoyment and beneficial nutrients as well as other key benefits, e.g., reducing teething discomfort, are essential. See a list of recommended GREAT DOG puppy treats and chews here.

COVID-19 and Dogs

COVID-19 and Dogs

It seems almost everything has been impacted by COVID-19 in the United States. And, the impact on pet households is no different. While demand for dogs across the US has soared, so has demand for all things dog related.  With increased demand, prices have also increased. Will dog adoption remain high while prices for dog food and chews return to normal once the cases of COVID-19 continue to drop and the number of vaccinated people in the US continues to increase? We sure hope so.
