We were just made aware of the recent announcement and loss of the nearly 600 dogs due to chicken jerky treats that were sourced in China. Most importantly, our prayers go out to those who have lost. 

Since the announcement this afternoon, the SitStay product development team met to identify ways we can help and initiate a deep dive into the products we carry at SitStay. The most important qualifier we have for on boarding products is ingredient sourcing and production in the USA. We usually get 100% truth and clarity. But, not always, which is why we are putting together a team to focus on it.

We encourage you to purge any treats or food that you may be concerned about. It's better to be safe than sorry. And, if you have questions about your current treats - give us a shout, we are here to assist best we can. As continued, ongoing support of the situation, SitStay.com is offering 20% OFF our Sourced & Made in the USA treats. Coupon code SAVETREATS

Our friends at the FDA have released a fact sheet for consumers. They suggest eliminating treats from your dog's diet. We are pet owners, avid pet owners, and encourage you to do one better . . . select food - both commercial pet food (as they call it) and treats from brands you trust. Eliminating treats all together is not the answer. Eliminating treats AND food from an unknown source is our recommendation. 

We feed our dogs the same treats and products that we share with you - so, we are taking this issue to heart. Here are several treats we carry that are trusted, sourced & made in the USA. 

We don't own dogs at Sitstay - the dogs own us.

The products we share are healthful, enriching and good-dog-approved. Everyday we strive to do our part in improving pet lifestyles and make it a point to have loads of fun along the way.

Join our mission to raise the most spoiled-rotten dogs on the planet … somebody’s got to!

Cheers from Nebraska!
