First time pet parent? Don’t worry, I’ve been there too. On top of finding the right furry friend, you also have to get food, furniture, toys, and so much more. I’m sure you’ve got all of that covered, but I do have a suggestion for you: why not invest in good cleaning supplies and some goodies for your new furry friend? I’ve put together a list of products that I personally have found to be helpful as well as some treats I’m sure your new pet will love.
These deliciously healthy treats from Fruitables are the perfect alternative to peanut butter treats. Made with superfoods, the Pumpkin Spice Skinny Minis and the Cranberry Baked Treats are CalorieSmart® formulated with only 3 calories per treat and 8 calories per treat, respectively.
If you’ve been following me for a while, then you’ve probably seen my Min Pin Roxie at least once. She’s my favorite puppy to spoil, but she’s definitely overweight at almost 20 pounds. I treat her with the grain free Minis every now and then when she’s good, and on special occasions I’ll give her the Baked Treats so she can have that crunchy baked texture every dog loves.
I’m always comfortable treating her with Fruitables because I know they’re healthy but still tasty – your pooch is sure to love them too!
Let’s talk cleaning supplies. If you haven’t already gotten a pet-specific odor remover, then this Kids ‘n’ Pets spray is perfect for you. It’s important to get a pet-friendly cleaner so you aren’t harming your furry friend (or kids, if you have them), and I’m delighted to inform you that Kids ‘n’ Pets is natural, non-toxic, AND is safe for people, pets, and the planet. How’s that for alliteration?
Not only that, but it works for stains, spills, pet accidents, and you can use it to pretreat laundry or boost detergent. So not only is it good for a quick clean, but it’s also perfect as a preventative to help stop that pet odor from building up.
Note that you should spray or pour it on stains without blotting the excess – it works actively breaking down biodegradable messes while wet, so you should let it air dry naturally. We’ve used it on toddler potty training accidents with great success! You can find it at Walmart or Home Depot.
The Eureka Upright Vacuum is perfect for you if you need a powerful deep cleaning on your carpet or hardwood floor. This lightweight vacuum has a multi-cyclone filtration system as well as a HEPA filter, meaning you get an allergy-free and truly deep clean.
There’s also swivel steering and 12ft of extended reach, so you know it’s worth the cost. The Eureka pet vacuum is available at Walmart.com for $159.00, and it’s definitely worth the investment.
I’ve started using it to vacuum all the dog fur in my home, and it’s even more helpful during shedding season. Once you’ve used Eureka, you won’t be able to turn back.
Thanks to recent events, everyone and their mom has had to stock up on disinfecting products. Personally, I like to use LemiShine since they’re effective against 99.9% of germs and bacteria, including the dreaded virus of 2020!
The LemiShine formula has been used in hospitals for 10 years and is now being brought to consumer use thanks to the pandemic. Despite the hospital-grade disinfecting, it’s still bleach-free and formulated with plant-based ingredients. You also don’t need to wipe down after you use it since there’s no toxic residue – meaning they’re perfectly safe for use around children and pets.
You can get a package at HEB + Kroger, and more locations are rolling out nationally in December. Check their website to see more updates!
This toy is my personal favorite for my pooch. The iDig is a positive outlet for a dog’s desire to dig and it’s sure to tire them out. It’s the perfect mental and physical stimulation for them so they’re focusing destructive tendencies on something other than your couch cushions and garden.
It’s the perfect pet gift for the holidays – and we’re giving this to Roxie a little early so she can have it for her birthday. She loves digging and it gives her all the entertainment she needs, plus it makes her work for her treats.
Roxie wouldn’t cooperate long enough for a video to show you, but this gives you a good idea of how it works!
