Dogs better people and society in so many different ways. Did you know that there are over a dozen kinds of service dogs? That is a pretty impressive number, especially when you consider that that number doesn't even include therapy dogs. At SitStay our goal is to support those amazing canines and their owners as much as possible. One way that we can help support you and your service dog is with our distinguishing service dog patches.

Service dogs are simply amazing and they can help people with a wide variety of issues. Service dogs can help detect dangerously high or low blood sugar in people with diabetes. Service dogs can alert an owner with severe allergies to specific allergens nearby. Service dogs are even able to call 911 or get help when their owner is having a seizure. We offer a wide variety of high quality service dog patches that can help you to distinguish your service dog. Our patches can help the public to know that you dog is on duty and should not be distracted or that your dog is friendly and that it is okay to pet him or her. 

Distinguishing your service dog will help to tell others how to behave around your dog and how to react in certain situations. All of our patches are high quality and affordable, not to mention easy to attach. We offer a wide variety of service dog vests for your to choose from. At SitStay we pride ourselves in being your service dog headquarters. Free shipping is available when you shop with us today.

Spring Into Outdoor Play

Posted by sitstaydogs

We’ve been stuck inside all winter. Trying to play fetch in the living room, braving the cold for a quick, freezing walk, and longing for those dog days of summer again. Well no more! As of TODAY, March 20th, it is officially spring, and we're excited! 

Exercise and play, which involve anything from fetch to a walk, provide many benefits for your pooch. Regular exercise helps keep dogs healthy and limber, reduces digestive problems, aids in weight control, and can put an end to bad behavior problems that a dog who doesn’t get enough play and exercise time might have.  

As you head outdoors to enjoy the warmer (and sometimes bipolar) weather of spring, don’t forget Fido’s toys. At SitStay, we love Twiggy the Stick, a member of The Sticks, a loveable family of totally terrified fetch toys. Made from recycled rubber, these fun toys are both dog friendly and eco-friendly. Twiggy’s slobber resistant rope means easier throwing and less slobber for you. Thanks to eyes that glow in the dark and Twiggy’s ability to float in water, you won’t have any trouble finding this member of the Sticks family.

Another great toy for that member of your family who loves to run and play fetch is the Hyperflite Jawz Disc. This tough, puncture resistant disc is perfect for big dogs. All Jawz discs feature Hyperflite's patent pending X-Flash™ Anti-Glare Technology. The Hyperflite Jawz Disc is a great flying disc for competition or playtime at the park. Still, while both of these toys are tough, neither are intended to be chew toys.

As you grab your tennis shoes and Fido’s leash, don’t forget to grab his toys. Head out and enjoy some backyard or park play in the beautiful spring sunshine with your favorite four legged friend!

Your Dog: The Perfect Exercise Partner

Posted by sitstaydogs

Mar 18, 2014 10:32:00 AM

exercisepartner_blog

At the end of a long work day, we often come home to dinner that needs to be made, children that want to play, or a lengthy to-do list. When it’s cold outside, the couch and a blanket sound far more appealing than working out (trust me, been there!). Exercising is easy to push down the list. Thank goodness spring is just around the corner (March 20!). And thank goodness for that brown-eyed, heavy breather at your feet right now.

According to the World Health Organization, adults 18 to 65 years old need 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise five days per week, along with strengthening exercises two days a week. A study conducted at the University of Western Australia found that 7 in 10 adult dog owners achieved 150 minutes of physical exercise per week, compared to only 7 in 10 non-owners. Your dog is the perfect exercise partner. Buddy won’t cancel on your workout plans because of cold weather or a long to-do list. Hitting the pavement or trail with him is beneficial for the both of you.

We know that walking burns calories and wards off heart disease, but did you know that it’s also a great stress reliever? Getting outside, breathing in some fresh air, taking in your surroundings, and savoring a break before you dive into your evening activities, is a great idea for you and your dog, especially after a long day at the office.

If Buddy is getting himself into trouble at home or barking and whining a lot, he’s probably trying to tell you that he needs more exercise to help him burn off some energy and feel less restless at home. But your nightly walks won’t just benefit him. Walking, like any other cardiovascular exercise, produces stress-busting endorphins and boosts energy. Just being outside and spending time in nature, studies have found, can reduce stress. Walking your dog is also a fantastic way to meet other people in your neighborhood.

If you’re an avid runner, walker, or hiker, or simply need your hands free to deal with the kids, the Buddy System is a great leash system. With your hands free, your movement isn’t restricted and you can focus on the trail ahead. Or maybe your hands or pockets are often full when you leave for a walk. The DOOG Walkie Utility Belt comes complete with built-in pick up bags, anti-bacterial handwipes, a clip, pocket for valuables, and even a velcro patch for Buddy’s tennis ball, so you don’t have to juggle everything.

If you're looking for a bright, new collar or leash this spring, SitStay has plenty of colors and sizes to choose from so you can find Buddy the perfect gear. If Buddy's a puller, consider an Easy Walk Harness, which gently discourages him from pulling while walking.

If Buddy’s big brown eyes don’t always send you running to grab the leash, consider making a walking schedule to hang on your fridge. It doesn’t matter how or when you walk, whether you take three 10-minute walks or walk for 30 minutes straight, just be sure to get out and enjoy the spring weather.

See you out there!

Green Tripe: Can You Stomach, Stomach?

Posted by sitstaydogs

Mar 17, 2014 10:04:01 AM

greentripestomach

Nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea...GO Pepto Bismol. WAIT. This is for pups, not humans. Redo: Nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea...GO Green Tripe!

Green tripe is an especially gentle food. It is the most natural food you can feed your dog. With vitamins and amino acids to spare, green tripe is full of the nutrients that boost your dog’s natural energy. Described as a well known secret among top breeders of performance dogs, green tripe is slowly beginning to gain the recognition it deserves among dog owners.

So what exactly are we talking about? Tripe is the stomach lining of ruminating (grazing) animals such as cattle, deer, sheep and goats. Remember learning about the four chambers of these animals’ stomachs on a field trip in grade school? Those four chambers consistently break down food with a mix of digestive enzymes, gastric juices, and amino acids. Delicious!

We know with that introduction, some of you are probably cringing in your chair. But it’s important to understand that the same digestive enzymes and bacteria that help the animal digest his food will do the same for your dog! Digestive enzymes are important because they help the body digest food, with as little energy used as possible. The less energy required to digest food, the more nutritional benefit your dog gets out of it.

Digestive enzymes also do far more than help with digestion. In a helpful article, Dogs Naturally Magazine explains that these enzymes purify and cleanse the blood and help to remove toxins and parasites. They also improve metabolism, hormonal function, and boost the immune system. Because of its impressive resume of benefits, we’re excited to introduce Evanger's 100% Whole Meat Freeze Dried Beef Tripe Treats. This treat boasts of the long list of benefits green tripe has to offer, which make it hard to ignore this product, even if we do wrinkle our noses a bit. Trust us, Fido won’t.

Why Your Service Dog Should Wear a Service Dog Vest

Posted by sitstaydogs

Mar 16, 2014 12:26:00 PM

homeserviceholiday.jpgService dogs are everywhere and more are trained everyday. Service dogs are able to lead the blind, alert deaf people to alarms, retrieve items for the immobile, and so much more. For a person that has a disability it is imperative that their service dog is with them at all times, and it is illegal for a business owner to deny access to a service dog or even to ask for identification. Your service dog does not have to wear a service dog vest by any means, but there are several reasons why it could be beneficial for you to get one.

  • A service dog vest can prevent awkward questions. Although it is illegal for a business to ask for proof that your dog is a service dog, it can still happen, and a vest can help you to avoid these types of situations.
  • A vest can keep others from distracting your dogs. Dogs are man's best friend, so it make sense for people to want to pet your dog, but service dogs need to concentrate. A vest will send a message to others that your dog is hard at work and shouldn't be distracted.
  • A vest will help your dog to look like the professional he or she is!

Service dog vests are not a requirement, but they can help you to have a much more comfortable situation whenever you leave your house. At SitStay we offer high quality service dog vests at a great price, plus you can enjoy free shipping on every order of $75 or more. Make sure that you properly measure your dog before shopping; we have created this video that can help. Shop with us today.

Posted by sitstaydogs

Mar 5, 2014 12:15:00 PM

As many dog owners know, chewing is essential for your dog’s physical and mental health. It helps to encourage good chewing behaviors, keeps their teeth clean, and occupies their mind.

At Sit Stay we offer a wide variety of dog chew toys for you to choose from, and when you shop with us you can rest assured that you are getting great quality for a great price.

If you are looking for a long lasting, rubber chew toy, one of the best is the Kong Goodie Bone. This durable toy has what it takes to occupy your dog for hours on end.

It really takes time and a trial and error approach to find the chew toy that your dog will love, but we are certain that you will find the perfect option with us. We offer great deals on the best products, so shop with us today!

Happy Peanut Butter Lover's Day!

Posted by sitstaydogs

peanutbutterlovers

March 1st is National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day! We’re all familiar with the sticky substance, whether we grew up on the staple PB&J sandwich or wrinkle our nose at it. But have you ever thought about giving it to your dog? Peanut butter is rich in protein and healthy fats, as well as vitamins E and H. What does that mean for your dog? A healthy and shiny coat! In honor of the day, we’re sharing a few of our favorites!

Buddy Biscuits offers peanut butter treats in both a crunchy, oven baked biscuit and a soft and chewy biscuit. Both options are grain and gluten free, making them wholesome, easily digestible treats!

Zuke’s makes several peanut butter treats we’re head over paws for. Both are corn and wheat free. Their Mini Naturals are an excellent choice for training rewards or anytime treats for smaller dogs. Each moist little morsel is only 2 calories, but packed with flavor. Or try Zuke’s Mini Bakes, which are small enough that they can be used for training or broken into several more pieces. These peanut butter and blueberry treats are the perfect combo for your pup.

Looking for something with a little more crunch? Wet Noses All Natural Big Bone Treats come in peanut butter & molasses flavor! This protein packed treat is great for the dog on the run who may need an extra boost of energy. This all natural treat also features organic sunflower seeds. Another source of protein and some healthy oils your pooch shouldn’t live without.

Putting peanut butter in a Kong toy is another great way to give your dog peanut butter. This way, your dog has to work for her treat, which will keep her busy while you’re at work or need to get things done around the house.

Regardless of how you and Fido prefer your peanut butter, Happy National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day!
