Today SitStay.com kicked off 7 Days, 7 Ways to Save and Celebrate National Dog Week. 

I'll be honest, every week is a dog's week at our home. We have a 4 year old beagle, Dexter, who has wiggled his way right into our hearts (and beds). And, like so many of our customers, we get a little giggly when we are reminded to celebrate our love for him. 

Most holidays remind us to do more of the things we love. Whether you are a dog owner or not, we encourage you to pause and do good in honor of man's best friend. Here are 7 ways to participate in National Dog Week.

1. SHARE
Share your time and a dime by volunteering, donating or adopting from your local animal shelter. Your helping hands and loving heart is always needed. 

2. PAW IT FORWARD
This is our favorite; when you see pet parents out and about with their dogs, pay them a complement, say hello or even share one of your favorite treats. 

3. SPOIL! SPOIL! SPOIL!
Let's face it, the best way to celebrate is with a little pampering ... endulge your dog with an unexpected trip to the groomer, new treat or stylish new collar.

4. GET READY
Ntaional Dog Week is the last week of September which also happens to be about 80 days until Christmas. HOLY COW! I mean HOLY DAWG!

5. GATHER
Host a only pets allowed party this week with an assortment of fun goodies such as Brown Beggers Chew Sampler, serve fresh water in plastic martini glasses and organize lots of backyard playtime. Don't forget the poop bags (these also make great gifts for your guests).

6. GET MOVING!
Most of us are enjoying outdoor-friendly weather this week. Get on those sneakers, DOOG walking belt and quality harness and get moving. Perhaps an evening walk after a long days work - how about packing a picinic basket. Nothing is better than an interactive game of fetch - we just got these new toys at Sitstay.com and LOVE them!

7. LAST BUT NOT LEAST ... PLAY, PLAY, PLAY!
There are very few moments that can compete with the joyful feeling we share when playing with our dogs. They are happy, tails are wagging, slobber is flying and at that moment ... life is good. Life with a dog is indeed the GOODLIFE! Amidst your busy schedule, be sure to take the time and play, play, play!
Happy National Dog Week!

Natural Dog Chew Line Made on Memories

As pet products suppliers, we spend several hours a day amongst thousands of products and take great pride in our product selection. Every once in awhile that process reminds me of childhood trips to the grocery store with my grandmother. 

The weekly event was enjoyable because of her simple approach. Her judgment of good products was not made through fancy product packaging; actually, it was the fancy labels that she always avoided. She used to say – “Extra fluff is for your hips, not your food”. Nothing was more memorable than our stop at the butcher shop. Good thing Grandma was a foxy lady because she kept those men behind the meat counter on their toes! As a farmer’s wife, she took great pride in preparing hearty and healthy meals for our family, therefore she picked very few processed foods. At the meat counter she handpicked each piece of meat (yes, while waving her pointer finger) and they packaged it for us. After gathering our brown-paper-wrapped-proteins, Grandma would ask for a treat for her “good girl” (that was me) and we would BOTH walk away with a juicy pickle.  

Brown Beggers is a line of products that evolved from those memories at the meat counter. Dog chews surely don’t remind me of Grandma, but standing for quality in its simplest form does. The high-quality products within the line are all handpicked from our treat counter, packaged for your good dog and sent to your front door. The Chew Sampler is my favorite, it’s a smorgasbord of our most popular dog chews that make a great addition to your four-legged family’s hearty and healthy daily meals. Variety is not only the spice of life, it is also a great way to prevent a picky eater, which is why the sampler collections change regularly. Enjoy them!

We invite you to join the SitStay mission of good people and good dogs helping each other enjoy the good life. And, we also invite you to surface a childhood memory that brings a smile – our busy lives keep us from doing that often enough.

Cheers to brown paper and memories with grandmothers!

Dogs all over love the products! See what they have to say:
