Introducing Beams from The Honest Kitchen!

Even though Paddy loves her bully sticks, we're not necessarily huge fans considering, ahem, where they come from (ewww). Fortunately, our friends over at The Honest Kitchen, the only human-grade pet food company in the US, have introduced Beams, which are made from pure, wild-caught Atlantic Catfish skins. While fish skins may not necessarily sound appealing, they're actually a great alternative for pets who are allergic or intolerant to common proteins like beef, chicken and turkey (or like Paddy, liver). Also, we love that when it comes to this snack, there's one only "pristine ingredient," and we don't have to worry about checking the ingredients for things that won't sit well with our pup.

Paddy is currently on vacation (seriously, she lives such a charmed life, sighhhh), but as soon as she's back in the city we'll let you know her thoughts! Are you fans of The Honest Kitchen? What are your pet's favorite snacks?

Spinz Twisty Dog Chews

We cannot say enough good things about our monthly BarkBox deliveries. Seriously, each month they seem to have better and better canine swag in them! This month, we discovered Spinz, aka Paddington's new favorite toy ever (and just when we thought nothing could replace the toys she got in LAST month's BarkBox).

The 100% edible interactive chew toy is made of two interlocking pieces with different patterned "heads" that rotate, thus making destroying this toy so much MORE fun.

Made in the USA they are low-calorie, gluten-free, reasonably priced and help to keep teeth sparkly clean! Pick yours up in a variety and flavors and sizes from your local pet-retailer like Petco.

The Dog is Not a Toy

We are moderately obsessed with this doggy scratch post out of Germany. And at a whopping 490 Euros (aka mucho dinero in US dollars),  it's arguably more artwork than cat toy, though I guess at that price the dual functionality is a plus! Made from polyester resin and sisal cord, it's (hopefully) designed to withstand kitty's claws and the test of time.

Fresh Dog Dry Shampoo

While catching up on one of our favorite blogs, Pretty Fluffy, we spotted this new Barkista-worthy beauty product that will keep your pup feeling fresh without the bathtub.

That's right, dry shampoo for dogs. It's here and available now to add to your doggy's vanity from Fresh Dog's website for $15.

And what a game changer this is: 100% natural, it instantly revives, detangles and cleans up buildup from your best friend's coat, while maintaining a healthy pH balance. Also, the site recommends it for freshening up carpets and pet bedding-- simply sprinkle, let sit, and vacuum!

Hot Dog in the City

It has been HOT HOT HOT in the city, and with no sign of the heat letting up, it's important to remember how these temperatures affect your pup, especially if you live in a concrete jungle like NYC. Love this graphic from Healing Springs Animal Hospital via the Paw Prints Magazine Facebook page that explains how hot the sidewalk feels to your doggy's paws:

How do you take care of your pooch's paws when the sidewalks are steamy? We've seen some folks opt for the booties and also heard great things about Musher's Secret Paw Protectant, but would love to hear how you help your dog handle the heat!
