Most Innovative Dog Toy of The Year

Posted by sitstaydogs

Nov 26, 2013 11:15:03 AM



The Most Innovative Dog Toy of the Year is the most revolutionary, exciting toy of the year. SitStay loves to recognize creative ideas and designs, especially if they satisfy our favorite furry friends and above anything else make them happy & active. Here at SitStay we strive for innovation everyday, and we feel it is necessary in all aspects of life (especially our dog’s) to give them the the toy they won’t be able to put down.

This years Most Innovative Toy of the Year goes to: the Kong On/Off Squeaker Toy.

The Kong On/Off Squeaker Toy is one of those palm-to-forehead, “why didn’t I think of that” favorites! This innovative toy can function as a normal squeaker toy for the pup that loves his noises, but mom or dad can switch the squeak to OFF for instant quiet time! Ahhhhhhhh...

It’s simply brilliant! This is the perfect gift for that dog that already has it all! 

Two cute designs: whale & pooch

Most Unique Treat of 2013

Posted by sitstaydogs

Nov 26, 2013 11:14:19 AM



The SitStay dog treat category is our favorite category by far, it is also our largest.

That means the winner of the Most Unique Treat of 2013 is up against steep competition. This year’s winner came to us late in the year and almost snuck by the final ballot count of this years Annual Product & Brand Awards.  Polkadog Bakery's Sfizis have the potential to get overlooked in the crowd (they’re so darn little) but once you meet these little guys you will fall in love with their versatility and your dog will fall in love with their flavor! 

“Sfizio” is an Italian word that means "to satisfy a whim" and was the inspiration for these protein-packed, unique morsels.

These all-natural treats are baked in a Boston bakery using organic ingredients that are all sourced in their backyard; made in the USA. The healthy dog treats are packaged in a convenient container that is dainty enough to fit in your purse, pocket, treat pouch, glove box or fanny pack during a morning dog run - perfect for the active dog lifestyle. The ingredients are minimal but the conveniences are tremendous. Sfizis are low-calorie and ideal for training rewards. And, with a little shake, these treats serve as an attention grabber to create teaching opportunities for your dog or new puppy. Sit. Stay. Shake! 

Sfizis satisfied our whim and quest to find the Most Unique Treat of 2013.

Evviva!  Find your whim!

Nov 26, 2013 11:14:00 AM



The Favorite Dog Treat of the Year is given to the tastiest, most nutritious, drool & bark provoking treat of the year. Probably one of the most difficult awards to recognize--as SitStay is your treat headquarters for all things delicious and nutritious--we tried our best to hit all categories that the perfect treat entails:

  • Satisfaction (Spot is begging for more, after every morsel is licked up)

  • Eco-friendly (Green, minimally harmful to the environment)

  • Health Beneficial (added nutritional benefits, gives Spot MORE than satisfaction--ranging from digestion, heart health, vitamins, supplements, etc)

  • Sourced Well (Aim for organic, pasture raised, locally grown and harvested, USA if possible)

  • Wholesome (preservative/antibiotic/color/filler/additive FREE)

The Favorite Dog Treat of the Year goes to: Polkadog Bakery's Cod Skin Twists

Polkadog Bakery Cod Skin Twists foot-long wonders were hands down the favorite treat of the year, not only with their added health benefits, but the flavor & crunch dogs beg for! This treat favorite also made it into SitStay’s favorite TEN under $10 Holiday Gifts. We highly encourage pup’s that love flavor, crunch, and fun to try these treats (and parent’s that want to offer heart health benefits from the omega-3s).

Whatcha waiting for!?

Posted by sitstaydogs

Nov 26, 2013 11:13:43 AM



We love this award because it truly is a great indicator of our customers' favorite product! The winner of this award competes against all 5,000+ products in the store, ranging from doggie diapers to service dog vests.   This year's best seller is favored by so many thus the recommendation comes straight from loyal customers and good dogs. Drum roll ...

The #1 Best Seller of 2013 goes to: Elinora’s Fish Skin Chews.

Elinora’s Fish Skin Chews was not only a favorite, but almost seemed to take on a cult-like following. After a dog owner introduces these to their four-legged friends they quickly inquire about our bulk discounts! The omega-3 filled, nutritious chews are a great alternative to bully sticks and have a fresh fish taste that keep dogs megging for more. When we asked our customers for holiday gifts for dogs recommendations, Elinora's Fish Skin Chews gift sets were top on the list. 

We source these chews directly from Elinora, the founder and avid dog-lover, in Iceland. Our long-standing partnership with her helps us ensure quality in every bag. Nutritious, affordable, award-winning. What more can we say?

Dogs across the globe have barked. And, this is their favorite!

Best Dog Chew of the Year

Posted by sitstaydogs

Nov 26, 2013 11:13:23 AM



The Best Chew of the Year is awarded to the treat that is tasty, can stand the test of time for your monster chewers, are healthy & safe! Because chewing for pups is so important for gum and teeth health, our four-legged friends need great products to literally sink their teeth into. We choose a treat that can keep your pooch satisfied for a lengthy amount of time, but is also safe and healthy. We also enjoy chews that are easy for the two legged variety to maintain: don’t splinter to worry about choking, dye free, stain free and odor free.

The 2013 Best Chew of the Year is awarded to: Jones Natural Chews Curly Q Bully Sticks

The shape of the Jones Natural Chews Curly Q is probably why pooches love this chew the most. The Curly Q’s swizzled design makes it a fun task for dog’s to work on for a while. We also know dog’s absolutely love the flavor of the Curly Q’s all-natural beef pizzle. Jones Natural Chews always supplies us with high-quality products that we can count on and they offer a plethora of chews of different varieties. We've tried other brands but proudly continue to pack & pick these daily from our natural treat deli bar.

Sit. Stay. Twist & Curl.

Most Cuddled Dog Toy of 2013

Posted by sitstaydogs

Nov 26, 2013 11:12:18 AM



The Most Cuddled Dog Toy of the Year always brings a comforting smile to our faces and absorbs gallons of slobber coast to coast. There are many plush toys on the market and in your doggie toy box but this year’s winner stood out from the rest.

Winner of the Most Cuddled Dog Toy of 2013: "Ali" the Plush Aligator

Ali, a durable plush toy made by Kong, was spotted in more photos and invoices than any other plush this year and was the first product nominated for the 2013 Holiday Gift Guide.


Perhaps it’s great because it is suitable for a good boy or good girl. Maybe it’s the bright Kermit the Frog green color. It could also be the affordable price or its “fit right under your chin during a nap” size and shape.

No matter the reason - Thanks Ali for cuddling, napping, bearing the bites and absorbing the slobber for so many of our four-legged friends this year! 

See all the winners at!
