Spring cleaning is in full swing around SitStay (and at home)! We all remember to cover the bases: sweeping, mopping, dusting (yes, that means dusting under things too!) and removing as much clutter as we can.

Spring cleaning can also mean a fresh start for your pantry, AND Fido's pantry. When was the last time you got your favorite furry friends a new bag of treats? What is the expiration date on the old ones? While spring cleaning you always want to be checking labels. Feeding Fido (and yourself and other humans) old or expired food can be harmful, and just isn’t enjoyable for your dog, and surely won't be enjoyable for you when cleaning up the result.

After checking the date on the label, be sure to check the quality of the ingredients. To ensure that your pup is actually getting the benefits from the superfood or featured ingredient, make sure that ingredient is near the top of the list. Ingredients are listed by the percent content it makes up the product.

While ingredients are important, what is the brand telling you? Is this brand environmentally and pet friendly? Are they trying to make a difference in the life of your dog or just trying to make a buck? SitStay believes in only featuring brands that are beneficial to your pup! Remember, we only recommend products that we also feed our own dogs!

A few of our favorite brands include:
- Max & Ruffy’s
- Wet Noses
- Evanger’s
- Scout & Zoe’s

 

Happy Spring, and happy cleaning!
