Look Who’s Traveling!

Summer = TRAVELING! During the summer months, traveling is a must! And what’s better than going on vacation with your whole family, pups included? Before you head out on your next family adventure, do a little research and locate a pet-friendly hotel or campground. You can see a few of our picks below. And don’t forget to bring along your dog’s favorite Look Who’s Happy! treats!

 

 

Top Dog Friendly Hotels:

  • Sheraton Virginia Beach Oceanfront Hotel- Virginia Beach, VA

So many wonderful hotels and destinations are waiting to welcome you and your pup on your next vacation! To make traveling a little easier (and more fun!) get the kids involved to help make containers to pack your Look Who’s Happy! treats!

Tip: Look for fun, colorful, easy-to-open containers that will fit your pups treats. But not too easy to open, you don’t want your furry little friend getting their nose in there!

Tip: Make it a family art day! Let the kids help with decorating the containers with stickers, glitter, paint, etc. The dog will be drooling with excitement over the new fun containers.

 

HAPPY Travels!

HAPPY Summer!

When was the last time you gave your dog a fun night out, or enjoyed an outdoor activity with the whole family? Now that summer is here, it’s time to get outside! There are tons of things to do that are perfect for summertime that you and your dog can both enjoy. Here are a few of our favorites:

  1. Hit the dog-friendly beach or park: Do a little research to see what areas of your town, or new places you are traveling to, are dog friendly. Finding new parks, hiking trails, and beaches allow you and your dogs to explore new adventures together. Don’t forget the frisbee or ball for fetch!
  2. Drive-in movie: The drive-in is always fun for the whole family, so make sure to include your four-legged family members too!
  3. Walking group: Do your friends also have dogs? Get everyone together once or twice a week for a walk around the park or neighborhood. This helps keep you and your dog in a regular exercise routine and gives you both a chance to catch up with your pals.
  4. Neighborhood dog party: Host a party in your backyard and invite all of your neighbors and their pets! It’s a great way for you and your dogs to meet new friends and spend some time outside.
  5. Camping: Look for state parks and campsites in your area that allow dogs. Bring the whole family along to explore nature and enjoy a perfect weekend getaway.
  6. Farmers market: If it’s dog friendly, bring your pups along to check out the farmers market! Visiting your local farmers market is a great way to get outside, meet new people, support local businesses and farmers, and bring home some fresh produce for your family and pets.
  7. Toy swap: Mix things up a little bit by taking a few of your dogs’ toys and trading with a friend or neighbor for their dogs’ toys. This will give your dogs something new and exciting to play with, and it won’t cost you a thing!
  8. Outdoor meal at restaurant: Everyone loves to enjoy a meal outside in the summertime, so let your pup be a part of your experience! If your dogs can maintain reasonable table manners, bring them along next time you dine out on a patio at a pet-friendly restaurant. Pack a few treats and ask the restaurant for a bowl of water so they can join in during mealtime.

Happy Summer!

HAPPY and Hydrated!

 

With summer almost in full swing, we know you’re looking forward to soaking up the sun and spending some quality time with your families and furry friends. So are we! But as the temperatures heat up, keep in mind that your dogs may need a little extra love to keep cool during the hot summer day.

Understanding these guidelines and knowing the warning signs of dehydration will help to keep your dogs safe and HAPPY this season so you can have fun in the sun together all summer long.

 

 

Don’t leave your dog in an unattended vehicle. If you’re out running errands, leave your dog at home, or try to avoid places that aren’t dog friendly. If you have to leave your dog in the car for a short period of time, keep your windows cracked. It doesn’t take long for a car in the hot sun to heat up to dangerous temperatures.

Avoid hot pavement. This can be tricky as we often forget that the roads and sidewalks may be too hot for our dogs’ bare feet. Try to walk through the grass or dirt and always check the temperature of the pavement before you lead your dog on the road or sidewalk.

Always bring water with you. Hydration is key for everyone during the hot summer months, so be sure to bring along plenty of water when you take your dog outside. If possible, try to bring ice or a frozen chew toy to keep your dog extra cool.

Seek shelter. Keep an eye out for a tree or covered deck, or bring along an umbrella to provide a little relief from the rays.

Keep your dogs groomed. Watch out for any tangles in your dog’s hair and talk to your vet or groomer about shaving his or her coat.

Walk during the cooler hours. If you love to take your dog for long walks around the park or neighborhood, try to head out during the cooler hours of the day. Walking during the early morning or later in the evening will allow your dog to get fresh air and exercise, while reducing the risk of dehydration and overheating.

If it’s over 85 degrees, STAY INSIDE. Temperatures exceeding 85 degrees can be dangerous for dogs. Wait until the temps cool down before taking them outside.

Finally, watch out for these warning signs that your dog may be dehydrated:

  • Sunken eyes
  • Dry, chapped nose
  • More lethargic than normal
  • Dark urine
  • Vomiting, diarrhea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Excessive panting
  • Dry mouth and gums
  • Thick saliva

These quick and easy steps will help you and your furry friends enjoy your favorite warm weather activities all season long.

Have a HAPPY summer!

Look Who’s Seeing Happier!

May is National Service Dog Eye Exam Month, and Look Who’s Happy! would like to recognize the important role that service dogs play in public safety, medical assistance and more. Dogs are universally known as man’s best friend, but a lot of people tend to forget that friends – even the furry kind – rely on each other just as much as they have fun going for walks or running around the park.

Throughout the month of May, the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists and participating board-certified veterinary ophthalmologists will provide eye exams to thousands of service animals throughout the U.S. Click here to learn more.

We were especially happy to have one of these fabulous Service Dogs stop by the Look Who’s Happy! office, and not to brag, but he seemed to love our treats.

Happy National Pet Week!

Look Who’s Happy! is celebrating the 35th anniversary of National Pet Week®, sponsored by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). As a pet parent, you know the special bond that exists between you and your furry family member. Here are a few tips from AVMA to help keep your pet happier and healthier:

  1. Choose well, commit for life: Select the pet that’s right for your family’s lifestyle, and make a commitment to that pet for its life.
  2. Socialize now: New doesn’t have to be scary: Learn about how to appropriately prepare your pet to enjoy a variety of interactions with other animals, people, places and activities.
  3. Exercise body. Exercise mind.: This not only improves cardiovascular health, maintains a healthy weight, and supports good mental health for both owner and pet, but it strengthens the human-animal bond.
  4. Love your pet? See your vet!: Regular check-ups are vital to catching health problems early.
  5. Pet population control: Know your role.: Talk to your veterinarian about when you should have your pet spayed or neutered.
  6. Emergencies happen. Be prepared.: Include your pets in your family’s emergency plan.
  7. Give them a lifetime of love: Pets are living longer now than they ever have before – but as pets get older, they need extra care and attention. Regular veterinary examinations can detect problems in older pets before they become advanced or life-threatening, and improve the chances of a longer and healthier life for your pet.

And, from the Look Who’s Happy! Family:

  1. Put a smile on your pet’s face, every day, with Look Who’s Happy! ® treats: It’s important to provide healthy treats crafted from the purest, most nourishing ingredients. View more.

What’s in Your Pantry?

It’s almost spring time, which means spring cleaning is right around the corner. If we may offer a suggestion: start with your pantry. Go through and get rid of all the junk food you don’t need. Leftover chips and salsa from the Super Bowl? Get rid of those! While you’re ridding your pantry of all this junk food, be sure to check what ‘junk’ you may be feeding your pets as well. It is time to replace it with treats that are delicious AND nutritious: Look Who’s Happy! dog treats.

What's in your pantry

 

Even though they’re called “treats,” our dog treats are some of the healthiest on the market. All of our products are made with human-grade ingredients, and are grain-free and gluten-free. In addition to these ingredients, all of the meats used in our products are naturally raised, and our vegetables are picked at the peak of ripeness. Get rid of the junk food in your pup’s life and replace it with the healthy and delicious treats!

Training Day: Dog Training Education Month

Having a furry friend in your life provides a great amount of happiness! Making sure your dog is a well-respected canine citizen is arguably one of the most important things you do as a responsible pet parent.

Untitled2

A trained dog is a fully participating member of the family—what a gift for all of you!

  • Puppy classes provide the opportunity for getting your new family member started off right. Puppy classes provide the experiences and opportunities for your puppy to develop interaction skills with other puppies, with people, and in new environments.
  • Puppy socialization has been found to be critical to the psychological health of adult dogs. Puppy classes provide the opportunity for this important facet of your puppy’s upbringing.
  • Training classes provide dog owners the skills and knowledge for dealing with common, normal dog behaviors—starting with puppy behaviors such as housetraining and chewing.
  • No matter what age you start training your dog, foundation training provides the basis for any activity, and behavior or job you want your dog to do.
  • Training provides dogs with the basic good manners we all want—from polite greeting when guests arrive, to walking nicely on the leash, to coming when called.
  • A trained dog is a fully participating member of the family—what a gift for all of you!
  • A trained dog joins in the fun when company comes, accompanies the family to the kids’ sports games, goes with you to visit friends and relatives, goes for hikes, swims, and everything else the family does together.
  • Training enables you to choose from among a broad range of activities and dog sports to participate in and enjoy with your dog • Training has been shown to be the single most important thing that keeps a dog in his or her “forever” home.
  • Training builds your mutual bond, enhances the partnership and enriches the relationship you share with your dog.

Positive reinforcement is key, especially rewarding for the right behavior. Don’t forget to reward your favorite pooch with Look Who’s Happy! treats for good behavior!

Put a smile in their life.TM Because they deserve it.

New Year; New You

The New Year is here, and many people are already getting started on their 2016 Resolutions. One of the most popular resolution is to stay healthy. This year, make sure to keep your pet healthy too! You and your furry friend can be each other’s accountability partners as you remain in good health. Here are some tips for you and your pets about how to stay healthy in 2016.

 

1) Go for annual checkups. Visiting a doctor on a regular basis is as important for your pet as it is for you. These checkups can help you and your pet discover illness early on and stop them quickly.

2) Exercise regularly. Help your dog maintain a healthy weight and active lifestyle. Something as simple as taking a daily walk around the block with your pet is a good way to get the blood pumping.

3) Maintain a healthy diet. Here at Look Who’s Happy!, we want to help provide your pets with the tastiest, most nourishing treats. All of our treats are up to FDA and USDA standards, and carefully crafted from the purest, most nourishing ingredients.

4) Keep free of Parasites. Consult your veterinarian for the best product to keep your pet free of parasites such as fleas, ticks, heartworm, etc.

5) Vaccinate. Make sure to vaccinate your pet against potentially deadly diseases such as distemper, parvo, panleukopenia and rabies. Consult your veterinarian on what age you need to vaccinate your dog.

Dog Grooming Will Get Pretty Hairy in 2016

teddy bearMany dog owners are already going beyond the standard trim or grooming appointment to give their beloved pet an updated, stylish makeover. And, after last month’s win for Best in Show by Goodtime Charlie at the National Dog Show, pampered pooches are sure to be sporting even longer locks in 2016.

As Charlie, a Skye terrier, has shown the world, a gorgeous coat is not just a girl thing. Ponytails with little bows and ribbons are outdated. Next season, expect to see more topknots on pups!

But don’t let this longhaired craze fool you. For dogs with more curly or thick hair, geometric shapes (either square or round) is a new American trend that started in Asia.

In 2016, dogs will be moving out of the cutesy category to take on a cooler, more punk role. Although fewer owners are asking for mohawks, there are more dogs out walking the streets with long bangs swept to the side for a hipster vibe. And it doesn’t stop with the cut. Groomers are adding streaks with touches of dye to also grab attention.

Share A Paw This Holiday!

Piper and Wubbie have gone ornament crazy! This year, they lent us a paw to create these beautiful dog-bone ornaments. You can find similar paw print ornament kits at your local pet supply store, and while your there, don’t forget to pick up a bag of Look Who’s Happy! treats to share with your pup as a reward for sitting still to make the ornament.

Look Who’s on the Cover of Petfood Industry!

Screen Shot 2015-12-17 at 9.05.52 AM

Look Who’s Happy! co-founders Jeff and Tommy Gay grabbed the spotlight in Petfood Industry’s December issue, as they discuss what has made Look Who’s Happy! treats such a phenomenon. The article walks through the co-founders’ path to home-grown success, beginning with their launch of Big Creek Foods in 2013. Their pursuit for premium pet treats brought them to seek out food safety certifications from the FDA, including a SQF (Safe Quality Food) Level 2 Certification, a certified HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) food safety plan benchmarked by GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative). All to ensure the Look Who’s Happy! line of treats are made with the freshest and most nutritious ingredients you can find.

As the Look Who’s Happy! brand expands to accommodate growing demand, Jeff and Tommy are turning heads nationwide for their particular brand of excellence. And as each and every treat is made by the employees at their Gainesville facility, you can be sure your dog will love every tasty bite of hand-made goodness. “I catch my own dogs staring at our bags wanting more,” says Tommy Gay.

National Mutt DayToday is a day when dogs of all pedigrees should feel as special as a purebred champion.

Celebrating National Mutt Day ties in with the Look Who’s Happy! philosophy. We believe in providing pooches of all shapes, sizes and breeds with only the tastiest, most nourishing treats. If there’s one thing all dogs should have in common, it’s that they should be happy!

A Thanksgiving Feast, Fit For Four Legs!

ThanksgivingAt Look Who’s Happy! our pets are part of the family. We know how hard it is to ignore your cute pup, smiling and begging for a bit of home-cooked Thanksgiving dinner. And, with a home full of love and excitement, it is all too easy to ignore bits of uncooked food dropping to the kitchen floor.

To help you safely prepare a Thanksgiving Day meal, and ensure your furry family member enjoys a special treat, we are sharing the Look Who’s Happy! Thanksgiving Tips.

Look Who’s Happy! Thanksgiving Tips

Dangerous Items to avoid:

  • Onions & garlic: Both contain sulfide, which is toxic to dogs and could lead to anemia.
  • Alcohol: Any type of alcohol is bad for dogs, but the hops in beer is especially dangerous.
  • Chocolate: This delicious “human” treat contains sulfides, which is poisonous to a dog.
  • Nutmeg: This spice can cause central nervous system problems, as well as seizures in your dog.
  • Sage: Essential oils in sage can cause stomach upset.
  • Turkey skin: Even though this can be delicious, it holds marinade, spices, butter and oils that are difficult to digest.
  • Cooked bones: Turkey and ham bones are NOT safe for dogs, they can splinter in the digestive tract and could cause damage to your dog’s intestinal tract.
  • Nuts: Specifically walnuts and macadamia nuts are very dangerous due to a possible toxic reaction.

Safe food and treat choices:

  • Savor a slow-cooked treat: Protein is perfect for your furry friend, so, let him enjoy the main dish. Turkey is a great lean protein option for dogs. Skip to the head of the line with Fetch’n Fillets™. Made with cage-free poultry and naturally raised meat, including beef, bison or venison meat. Slow-cooked for terrific taste. Naturally packed with savory flavor, they’re the perfect snack to reward your pup and get his tail wagging!
  • Eat your veggies: A dish of potatoes and other vegetables are best, but only if they are served plain—no chives, gravy, cheese or sour cream. Treat your dog to Happy Wraps™—Made from dry-roasted sweet potato and carrot, wrapped with chicken or turkey!
  • A yummy treat to finish the meal: Plain pumpkin, blueberries or a slice of apple (without the seeds) are healthy options. Treat your dog to Tempt’n Tenders™—Made from yummy goodies like pumpkin and blueberries, for both texture and aroma!

Have a safe, and delicious, Thanksgiving Day!

Bone Up on the Competition, Before the National Dog Show

Best in ShowThe most widely viewed all-breed dog show in America—The National Dog Show, presented by The Kennel Club of Philadelphia—will be held on Saturday, Nov. 14, 2015.

The event is taped and televised nationwide by NBC to nearly 20 million viewers on Thanksgiving Day, immediately following the Macy’s Parade.

This year, there will be more than 2,000 dogs, representing more than 150 different breeds and varieties. There are even seven new breeds that will be introduced during the competition!

These gorgeous dogs will be judged on how perfectly they match each breed’s official standard, including overall appearance, temperament and structure. In other words, ‘characteristics that allow the dog to perform the function for which his or her breed was bred.’

First in Group will be awarded in the following categories:

  • Sporting Group
  • Hound Group
  • Working Group
  • Terrier Group
  • Toy Group
  • Non-Sporting Group
  • Herding Group

Then, those standout canines must compete for Best In Show!

 

At Look Who’s Happy!, every dog is a champion. And every champion gets a treat!

Support Lifesaving Work, for the Young and Old

Look Who’s Happy! is all about supporting our community, and, there is no better week or month to get involved—as a dog lover and rescue champion—than around National Animal Shelter Appreciation and Rescue Appreciation Week. Across the country, animal shelters offer a safe, caring environment for hurt and abandoned animals, not to mention providing spay/neuter services to help reduce pet overpopulation.

That’s why the dedicated staff at animal shelters needs your support, through donations of money, food or supplies, as well as volunteering.

November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month!
By placing animals in adopted families, shelters are a starting point for a life-long, cherished friendship. Unfortunately, older dogs have the hardest time finding forever homes, which means these wonderful animals face higher euthanasia rates, and often spend the end of their life in a shelter.

At Look Who’s Happy!, we know senior dogs bring extra smiles. Dogs seven years or older are calmer than puppies, perfectly content to relax with an owner, and easier to adjust to a daily routine. Senior dogs are also grateful for a safe, loving home, which means they are devoted family members and great companions for other pets.

Because older dogs do not need as much exercise, they’re a perfect match for seniors! There are few surprises from these full-grown pets, who don’t require the constant level of attention a puppy needs for teething and potty training.

HEALTHCARE TIPS FOR SENIOR DOGS
A senior dog has different health requirements than a younger dog. Here are some tips to help you keep your senior pet healthy. (source: petmd.com)

1. DON’T FORGET THE HEALTH CHECK-UPS
Make sure your senior dog has regular visits with your veterinarian. In fact, many veterinarians recommend that senior dogs should be examined twice a year, even more so if the dog has serious health issues.

2. NOTE ANY BEHAVIOR CHANGES IN YOUR DOG
Watch your senior dog’s behavior carefully. This is important for all pets but doubly so for senior dogs. Changes in your dog’s behavior may be a symptom of disease.

3. MAKE IT EASIER FOR YOUR DOG TO GET AROUND
Be aware that your senior dog may have pain caused by arthritis or other health issues that make it difficult for him to get around as well as he did when he was younger. Consider providing ramps or stairs to allow your senior dog to access furniture or beds.

4. CHOOSE AN AGE-APPROPRIATE DIET FOR YOUR DOG
Dietary requirements may change as your dog ages. It’s important that you provide your senior dog a pet food that is age appropriate. Your veterinarian can help you choose an appropriate diet for your senior dog based on your dog’s individual nutritional requirements. Look Who’s Happy!™ Brand products are wholesome ingredients and make a perfect addition to a well-balanced diet.

Start November off with a giant smile. Adopt a senior dog from your local shelter today!

Our Team Was Happy to Accept a 2015 Innovation Award!

Gregg WilsonThe Look Who’s Happy!™ brand, and our parent company Big Creek Foods, was honored at the Petfood & Animal Nutrition 2.0 event in downtown Chicago, October 20, 2015.

Quality, Research and Development Manager Gregg G. Wilson attended the event to personally accept the 2015 Innovation Award, which is given to top pet food and animal nutrition innovators for market impact.

Petfood-Innov-Winner-4c“The Innovation Awards provide a great platform for acknowledging brand holders, who are staying relevant with today’s increasingly savvy pet owners,” said Karen Butler, editor-in-chief of Petfood & Animal Nutrition 2.0, which celebrates companies demonstrating innovative, disruptive thinking across the pet nutrition market.

The incredible Look Who’s Happy! team won for our U.S.-sourced line of pet jerky treats, Fetch’n Fillets™, made with whole muscle (beef, bison, chicken or venison), and slow cooked for terrific taste!

Howl-o-ween Tips for Less Tricks, More Treats!

trick or treatEven a familiar home, filled with a well-known group of friends and neighbors, can become very spooky this time of year, especially for an anxious or eager doggie. That’s why Look Who’s Happy! wants you to be on the look out for dangers to your pets this Halloween.

  1. Keep bowls and bags of candy (especially chocolate) out of reach.
    Symptoms of poisoning can include vomiting, diarrhea, rapid breathing, increased heart rate and seizures.
  2. Minimize decorations, especially small or easily destructible items.
    Fake webbing, plastic bugs, and open flames are potential hazards.
  3. Designate a room or familiar kennel as a place to keep your pet safe.
    A ringing doorbell and children shouting with excitement can cause anxiety, which can lead to tense growling and possible biting.
  4. Take a long walk during the day, so your dog is tired and ready to relax.
    In case of an escape, ensure your pet has an updated tag and is chipped, if possible.
  5. Pick a pet costume that doesn’t impede breathing, hearing, vision or movement.
    Steer clear of masks, items that might tangle legs and small chewable parts. Do not leave a costumed dog unattended. Signs of discomfort include folded down ears, a tucked tail and hunching over.
  6. Give your special trickster a treat to keep them preoccupied.
    We suggest our chicken with pumpkin Tempt’n Tenders for this festive season!

Save a Life! Change Your Life.

rescueSince 1981, October has been designated Adopt a Dog Month. Whether you are opening your home and your heart by adopting from a local shelter or a breed-specific rescue group, your generosity will save at least one precious and very thankful life.

 

In fact, according to the American Humane Association, “Each year, an estimated 3 to 4 million animals waiting in shelters for someone to give them a safe, loving home never find a hero to adopt them and, tragically, are euthanized.”

 

There are many resources for finding the newest member of your family. Petfinder offers an online searchable directory of 14,000 shelters, adoption organizations and animal welfare groups.

 

Even if you are not able to adopt a dog this month, there are many other ways to contribute to this great cause.

 

  • Spay or neuter your pets to prevent unexpected arrivals.
  • ID your pet with a tag and microchip, so they can be safely returned home.
  • Donate money or supplies to a rescue group.
  • Consider becoming a foster parent or volunteer at an animal shelter.

 

Now, look who’s already making a difference!

Our incredible team won for our U.S.-sourced line of pet jerky treats, Fetch’n FilletsTM, made with whole muscle (beef, bison, chicken or venison) and slow cooked for terrific taste.

 

Petfood2.com recently highlighted our commitment to make dog treats as good, or better, than food eaten by people. Since our founding two years ago in Gainesville, Georgia, Look Who’s Happy has grown a wonderful customer following, and received rave reviews and recognition in the industry.

 

“Our commitment to complete transparency and being sourced and produced in the U.S., which is reflected in our packaging, goes a long way to ease pet owner’s fears,” said Big Creek Foods President Tommy Gay.

 

BigCreekB2B_logoEven though we are all smiles with this great appreciation for our dedication to improving the pet food market place, there is still more to come! “New treat sizes and shapes will also be an avenue for us to explore, and meet pet parents’ desire for their next premium dog treat,” Tommy Gay adds.

Now Is the Perfect Time to Work on Your Dog-Owner Relationship

National Dog DaySeptember is a great month to remember how important our loving pets are to our family, and to celebrate that connection. In fact, the 13th Annual American Kennel Club Responsible Dog Ownership Day was held on Sept. 19, which included an agility course, tricks demo and breed parades. And National Dog Week, which started in 1928, runs from Sept. 20 through Sept. 26.

 

From a quality diet to proper grooming to regular vet visits, as well as training, exercising and socializing, dog ownership comes with real responsibilities. Look Who’s Happy! wants to encourage all owners to plan a special doggie date this week, and tempt your fury friend to a delicious and healthy treat.

 

National Dog Week is also a great opportunity to add to your family by adopting a one-of-a-kind mixed mutt or even a special breed. Are you an outdoor enthusiast or enjoy snuggling indoors? From people-pleasing Labrador retrievers to comedic pugs, there are many resources to match your personality to the right type of dog.

 

According to iheartdogs.com:

  • Extroverted people tend to own bulldog breeds.
  • Pointers and setters appeal to very social people.
  • People with big imaginations like toy dogs, such as poodles.

 

To better determine the dog breed that matches your personality of your family’s lifestyle, complete the ‘What dog breed is right for me?’ quiz.

 

Today, we highlight Zoe, a two-year-old long hair Chihuahua that our National Sales Director Ian Poole rescued two weeks ago.  Zoe was found half bald and and covered with fleas, but quickly made herself at home with her two new basset pals, Molly and Boomer. Zoe is already hard at work trying to select which Tempt’n Tenders flavor is her tail-wagging favorite!

Today we salute dogs in politics on National Checkers Day, made famous by a televised speech given by then Sen. Richard Nixon about a black-and-white cocker spaniel that had been gifted to his family, and named Checkers by his children. Many pundits believe this was only a continuation of politicians using their family pets for great photo opportunities and personal stories.

There’s No Trick. Pups Crave Pumpkin Treats, Too!

Look Who’s Happy knows both the humans and the pups in your family have been looking forward to autumn for the same reasons—crisp air, falling leaves, spicy scents, and the taste of pumpkin!

pumpkin treatsFor most dogs, pumpkin is more than just a flavor. Its benefits include being low in fat, high in fiber and a natural solution to digestive issues. At Look Who’s Happy, we top that off with cage-free chicken, cane molasses and sea salt.

In fact, our happy customers can’t stop bragging, or begging, for our newest addition—Tempt’n Tenders Chicken with Pumpkin Recipe. Take a look for yourself at the smile on Pierre’s face, in the ‘pumpkin-season’ review on Barking from the Bayou.

I’m reviewing a fabulous brand that I’m proud to say has your dog’s welfare and happiness in mind. If there’s one thing you can do this year that will have a huge impact on your dog’s health AND happiness, it’s to make the switch to Look Who’s Happy Dog Treats…

Look Who’s Happy’s tagline is ‘Put a Smile in their Life’ and with 12 treat flavours to choose from, they sure do.

There’s a whole range featuring slow cooked treats such as Fetch’n Fillets Bison Jerky (treat taster Coco’s #1 choice!! Yum!!), Venison Jerky (OK – maybe this one also tied 1st for Coco’s tastiest treat!), and Tempt’n Tenders Chicken & Blueberries.

Our personal favourite are the Happy Wraps – chicken fillets hand-rolled around a generous slab of dry-roasted sweet potato or carrot and slow cooked to perfection.

How to Photograph Your Dog (feat. Look Who’s Happy Dog Treats)

Rigby is insanely food motivated which makes posing him for photos a lot easier. We’re using Look Who’s Happy Treats right now, which he is obsessed with. They smell like real meat jerky (probably because they are!), are grain free, and are made here in the USA. Ever since the controversy surrounding jerky treats made in China, I’m super careful to only purchase items made in the USA and also made with meat sourced from the USA, Canada, and New Zealand, which these are.

WOOF! It’s been pretty hard to focus on much else since we got these treats sent us from Big Creek Foods. The flavor they sent us is the Look Who’s Happy- Chicken with Pumpkin Recipe. These treats are soft, chewy and pretty big. You could easily break them up to make them last longer, but I think that’s a terrible idea because I want eat them all. The treats look like they have grill marks and you can see the specks of pumpkin in them.

Whenever you catch yourself walking around your apt or house and see those listless stares following your every move: this, friends, is why we ‘spoil’ our pups.

I’m loving the packaging of Happy Wraps but, hey, I’m a designer so I’m partial 🙂

These USA-raised, cage free whole muscle chicken dog treats are great option if you’re in need of a grain and gluten-free treat free of all those additives. Both Jake and Poochie loved the Sweet Potato and Carrot. I mentioned before how Jake is indifferent towards some dogs treats so these flavorful options always pique his interest. You can tear them into pieces easily for smaller dogs to chomp away without the guilt. Oof!

The Tempt’n Tenders were in strips of various sizes, and were very easy to break into smaller pieces. The sweet potato crust left some particles on my fingers, but it was not sticky and rubbed off easily.

 

Before I even cut open the treat bags, Chewy decided he needed to roll all over them like he does his favorite toys. It’s his way of saying, “this is mine!”

 

We give Look Who’s Happy dog treats 4 paws up. They smell yummy, are made in the USA with natural ingredients, and even the tiniest piece gets Chewy in super obedient mode. Also, the packaging is sure to put a smile on your face!   Read full article at itschewytime.com

Innovative Pet Products

These companies are using innovation to make pet ownership easier and more fulfilling for shoppers, thus adding to the momentum behind the public’s love affair with pets.

 

Many of these manufacturers play a vital role in giving pet stores the ability to differentiate themselves in what has become an extremely competitive retail landscape. For these pet specialty retailers, tapping into the steady stream of innovative pet products coming into the market has proven invaluable in keeping assortments fresh and functional to stay one step ahead of the other retail channels that have climbed into the pet care ring.

Dog Treats Review
Look Who’s Happy Dog Treats are a great choice. They are carefully crafted from the purest, most nourishing ingredients, are grain free, and are made safely right here in the USA. Some of the benefits of Look Who’s Happy Treats are:
  • All the meat and poultry they use is sourced from the United States, Canada or New Zealand (never China) and is USDA-inspected
  • Every treat is made in their family-owned plant

As soon as I opened the bag I got a whiff of the scent inside. Wow, it smells just like beef jerky! This is the first time I’ve actually been jealous of my dog’s food. It smells so good, just like the jerky that I would want to eat.

 

It looks and feels a lot like jerky too! Each strip is semi-moist and tender. The pieces are long, but I can easily rip them into smaller, more appropriate sized pieces for my Chihuahua. Just look at Zooey’s face in the picture above and it says it all. She’s staring so intently at the Tempt’n Tender, she just can’t wait to get that treat in her mouth!

Sawyer the Labrador: Organic Dog Treats Review

Organic Dog Treats Review

One of the things that makes Look Who’s Happy dog treats different is the fact that they’re made by the same people that sell them. That’ right. The brand and the food plant— founded in 2013— are family-owned and operated. The other thing that makes Look Who’s Happy dog treats different is the fact they’re made in small batches using USDA-inspected natural raised meat and cage free poultry that’s from the United States or sourced from Canada or New Zealand. They contain no by-products, hormones, gluten, grain or artificial flavors/color/preservatives. 

 

Slow cooked for maximum flavor, Look Who’s Happy is available in three varieties: Fetch’n Fillets, Tempt’n Tenders and Happy Wraps.

 

Tempt’n Tenders are chicken treats with a twist. There’s a chicken with blueberry recipe, a chicken with sweet potato recipe, a chicken with carrot recipe and a chicken with pumpkin recipe. I got lucky and got to taste the latter— chicken with pumpkin— which happens to be perfect for the season. Thanksgiving is around the corner so pumpkin-everything is a the way to go, and these are absolutely scrumptious. Read full article at sawyerthelabrador.com

Grain Free Dog Treats Review

Look Who’s Happy is a recent favorite in our house. The company is run by brothers and based out of Georgia. Their processing facility meets much higher standards than the commercial pet product requirements. Plus, I love the ingredients and the fluffies love the taste!

 

Look Who’s Happy currently has two lines of grain free dog treats: Fetch’n Fillets and Tempt’n Tenders. The fillets are jerky treats which come in beef, bison, chicken, and venison. The tenders are all chicken based, but have a crust of either blueberry, carrot, pumpkin, or sweet potato. They will soon be coming out with a line called Happy Wraps. Happy Wraps are made from dry-roasted sweet potato or carrot, which is then wrapped in chicken or turkey. Yum! These definitely passed the fluffy taste test. Mauja wanted to eat them straight out of the bag!

Nothing makes Rocco happier than a tasty treat, so we were anxious to try new Look Who’s Happy treats, made right up the road from us in Gainesville, Ga.

 

Rocco got the chance to taste test two different types of treats — Tempt’n Tenders in chicken with blueberry and Fetch’n Fillets in chicken jerky. The biggest difference between these two lines of treats are the Tempt’n Tenders are crusted with garden veggies and fruits and are softer to break into smaller pieces while the Fetch’n Fillets are more of a jerky consistency that can still be cut into pieces if you choose to make them a bit smaller. Both are grain and gluten free with no by-products, hormones, artificial preservatives, flavors or colors.
