ACANA Lamb & Apple Treats + Shirts for the Dog Lover in Your Life

Hello! Where is that waving emoji girl when I need her? That might be my second favorite emoji of all time. 😀

It’s been a hot minute since I blogged. Yikes. Between Thanksgiving, some traveling, and getting sick, I am happy to home for the rest of the year and looking forward to the holidays!


Today I’ve got a new treat to share with you from Check out the ACANA Lamb & Apple Dog Treats.


Oh,  yeah. That bag is open. And we’re about through the darn thing because Teton and his cousin Henley Pretzel have been gettin’ DOWN on these treats.

ACANA’s freeze-dried treats come in a handful of flavors including the one we tried – lamb & apple. I have to say, we got the most tame of the flavors because two of the others are pork & squash and mackerel & greens!


Not many ingredients in these little nibblers. We ♥ that! They’re also made in the U S A. Winning.

In my experience, freeze-dried treats are almost always a favorite for any dog. They are easy to chew and digest (it seems) and they smell super strong and delicious.


These treats are super awesome because they are small (and easily broken to make even smaller pieces) which makes them both great treats on their own but also fun little sprinkles for the top of your dog’s food. (Sometimes we like to treat ourselves with sprinkles in this household.)

ACANA’s line of freeze-dried treats is available here at They’d make a great stocking stuffer for your pup!

Ok, warning. Severe selfies ahead.

One of my favorite things to shop for and review are dog products for humans. You know…shirts, mugs, keychains, art, that type of thing. So, being that Christmas is right around the corner (seriously, people, get your shopping done before it’s too late!) I wanted to share with you a few recent purchases and one gift that may just be perfect for the dog lover in your life.


Exhibit A. This tank from Wags & Weights. Describes my life. Is amazing. The end.

img_8795Exhibit B. This sweatshirt. A birthday gift from my homie (thanks, girl!). Also describes my life. Available here on Etsy.


Exhibit C. This shirt that I clearly needed last weekend when I was visiting my bestie in Arizona. Available here from Farfetched Apparel, along with a zillion other adorable shirts and goodies.

Ok, selfie time has concluded.

I’m off to drink from this, my new favorite mug.


See you next time for some more Christmas gift ideas for that dog lover in your life!

MOD Paw’d Pet ID Tags

Happy Saturday! Is it me or is the weekend already going by way too quickly? Ugh.

If you’ve been following Her Dog Blog for a while, you know I love Etsy. About once a week I get sucked into the Etsy vortex and can’t find my way out for a few hours. It’s always worth it, though, because I find so, so many adorable things.

Speaking of adorablethumb_IMG_6692_1024

Check out Teton’s new tag from MOD Paw’d!

Mod Paw'd

The kind and generous folks at MOD Paw’d contacted me and offered to create a custom tag for Teton, and the finished product is to die for!


The tag we chose is called “The Donut” and is a completely customizable two-layered tag. It’s lightweight but not at all flimsy and the quality of the stamping is fantastic.

I opted to get a quote (“the mountains are calling”) on the second layer of the tag, and Teton’s name on the first. I love that it’s in all lowercase letters.

Check out some of my favorites from the MOD Paw’d shop!


The Haley


The Zeppelin


The Captain


The Daphne


The Winston


The Champ

If you are in the market for a new tag for your pooch, make sure you check out MOD Paw’d. Their customer service is superior and it was a pleasure working with them!

Nutro Crunchy Treats

Happy Memorial Day!

Teton and I hope you are spending time with loved ones today and taking a moment to appreciate the sacrifices made by those who serve.


We spent time with my family this weekend and today I planted vegetables while the husband installed a sprinkler system. Now we’re relaxing before a full week of work.


(One of Teton’s favorite pastimes – making cardboard confetti.)

This week Teton has been munching on Nutro’s line of crunchy dog treats, sent to us by


Chewy was kind enough to send Teton two flavors – pomegranate and banana!

We decided to open the pomegranate flavor first because Teton has never tried pomegranate before. He isn’t a fan of fresh banana but he’ll do dried banana and I think he likes treats with banana in them but to be honest, I’m not totally sure. I guess we’ll find out!


(Look closely at the treat closest to the bottom of the photo. You can see a chunk of real pomegranate in it!)

Nutro Crunchy Real Pomegranate Treats are a made in the USA treat with limited ingredients like pomegranate, oatmeal, chicken meal, and rosemary extract. They are free of wheat and corn.

Nutro makes these treats in six flavors – pomegranate, peanut butter, mixed berries, banana, apple, and carrots. I think Teton would like them all. 😉

Nutro Crunchy Treats are small and have a biscuit-like texture but they are easy for Teton to chew so I think they’d be a good option even for older dogs that may have difficulty chewing hard treats. If you are training your puppy or adult dog, any flavor of these treats would be a great training tool since they are easy to stuff in your pocket and use as a reward.

If you are in the market for a new treat with a great ingredient list and fun flavors, you’re in luck because Chewy has all of the Nutro Crunchy Flavors on sale right now. They range from just $3.49 to $5.99 a bag.


Thanks for letting us try another great treat, Chewy!

Have you heard of Wolfgang Man and Beast?

Wolfgang Man and Beast

I met them a year or so ago at a show and love their products. They have a really fantastic line of American-made leashes and collars for your dog plus shirts, bags, and other cool accessories for you.

I’ve been using their CamoFlag leash for the last year and love how it feels in my hand while I’m walking Teton. Plus, it gets a lot of compliments because of the unique design. Who says your dog’s accessories can’t be stylish?

Check them out!

Hot Dog Collars + a $50 Gift Certificate

*This giveaway is now closed.*

Happy Sunday!

I hope you had a good weekend. Aside from the constant downpour around these parts it’s been a great one for us.

I’d like to introduce you to Hot Dog Collars.

Typically I get offers to test food or treat products so I was stoked when the folks at Hot Dog Collars offered to send Teton some goodies in exchange for a review on Her Dog Blog.

Hot Dog Collars specializes in personalized products for your dog. Their vast assortment of products ranges from collars and leashes to beds and bowls. They were kind enough to send us four products to test:

1. Anchors Away EZ-Grip Dog Leash – This leash (and many other leashes at Hot Dog Collars) comes in a variety of sizes so you can order the perfect leash length for you rather than tying knots in your leash or always having to hold folded up parts of it while walking your dog. The handle is an ergonomically-friendly shape made of soft rubber so it’s pretty darn comfortable to hold in your hand. At just $11.95 you can snag a print you love to keep an extra leash in your car, backpack, etc. And, if you love this print more than anything, match your dog’s collar, harness, and even potty bells. 🙂

Leash 2

2. Custom ID Personalized Dog Collar – Believe it or not, but I’ve never ordered Teton a custom collar before now! It was pretty fun to create. When creating a collar on Hot Dog Collars, you’ll get to choose the collar’s inner and outer colors, the text color, and a design like the football I had printed onto Teton’s. The only bummer is that you can’t preview your collar before ordering it, but this is exactly what I had in mind when I submitted my order so I guess there isn’t much room for surprise. These custom, made in the US collars are just $10.95!

3. Denver Broncos NFL Dog Tag with Custom Engraving – The husband is from Denver and loves the Broncos so Teton divides his devotion between Denver and Seattle. 😉 This NFL charm says “GO BRONCOS!” on the back and it’s a cute little addition to Teton’s collar. This would be a fun gift to give friend for their dog. You know, if you have any friends that are obsessed with football.

Pet Charm Back

4. Dog Tag Circle Silencer – I’ve yet you put this tag silencer on Teton’s collar but when I do I’ll let you know what I think. I have a ton of friends that use these on their dog’s collars to keep them from jingling and jangling around. This one is particularly cool because it’s glow in the dark and any of you with completely black dogs know how difficult it can be to see them at night!

Tag Protector

Hot Dog Collars has a ton of products, so start perusing! It may pay off since they’ve generously offered up a $50 gift certificate code to one of Her Dog Blog’s readers!

To enter to win this $50 code toward any purchase on Hot Dog Collars, leave a comment below telling me what you’d most like to purchase for your dog! For an extra entry, “like” either Her Dog Blog on Facebook and mention that you’ve done so in your comment.

I’ll randomly select one winner next Sunday, November 9th.

Big thanks to Hot Dog Collars for Teton’s goodies and for sponsoring this giveaway!

Dogs + Football

I’m not really that into football.

This Is Me


I’m also not really into dressing Teton up in anything other than a bandana.

My husband likes loves football. The Broncos are his favorite team but he’s also a Hawks fan.

Today has the potential to be a pretty stressful day.

Depending on who plays in the Superbowl this year, I think that, even though I’m not big on dressing Teton up, I’ll be buying some doggie football threads.

These jerseys are from Accessorize My Dog.

Seahawks Jersey

If that’s too much for you, though, Accessorize My Dog also sells NFL collars and leashes.

Seahawks Leash

Here’s to a win for both the Broncos and the Seahawks today!

Brat & Suzie

Hi, y’all!

Shannon & Teton

Long time no blog. I’ve missed you.

In honor of my return, here are some goodies I found recently for you dog lovers out there.

Brat & Suzie Swing Dog Sweat Top

Swing Dog Sweat Top from Brat & Suzie

I don’t know how I could have missed Brat & Suzie. This brand is adorable and I must have every item in their line.

You can imagine my heartbreak when I found out that they are based out of London. But, after some sleuthin’ I found out that Asos carries a few of their tops. Too bad they don’t have my favorite, the Hippy Dog Burnout Tee.

Brat & Suzie Hippy Dog Tee

I mean! Do you see this thing?!?!

And, I know it’s not a dog, but…but…

Brat & Suzie Donkey Sweater

It’s a donkey! In rain boots! With an umbrella!

Ok, so enough of that adorableness and on to some more fun little items.

Check out this sweet necklace that I’ve been eying for the last few days.

Dog Lover Necklace 2

Dog Lover Necklace from A Charmed Impression

This petite little gem comes in either gold or silver and you can have it engraved or just with the paw print.

Dog Lover Necklace 1

I love it both ways but almost lean toward the non-engraved. Isn’t it the cutest?

Another thing I’ve had my eye on for a while is this treat jar from

Ore Pet Ceramic Treat Jar

Ore Pet Ceramic My Pet Likes Treats Treat Jar from Chewy

Well, that’ll do it for tonight. I’m off to walk the pup!

Dinner for Dogs Giveaway Winner (& Some Other Fun Stuffs)

Yep, fun stuffs coming your way. But first, the randomly selected winner of the Dinner for Dogs giveaway is…


Dinner for Dogs Giveaway Winner

Congratulations, Sara! There are a ton of great snacks in Dinner for Dogs. Let me know how it goes when you make them and what your favorites are! E-mail me at and we’ll send you your copy of Dinner for Dogs!

Thanks to the folks at The Experiment for sponsoring this giveaway.

Now, onto the fun stuffs. 🙂

Have you seen these Chester & Company necklaces?


I mean! Too cute.

They’re on right now so get ’em while the gettin’s good!

If you’re not feeling the dog-themed jewelry, how about an accessory for your dog?


You know I’ve loved Silly Buddy since I had them make me a custom collar for Teton for our wedding. I’ve seen a lot of doggie bow ties out there but none are as well made as Silly Buddy and I’ve definitely never seen such fun fabrics. Look at that wood grain! And the chevron! Teton might need another.

Added bonus: Silly Buddy bow ties are actually a collar AND a bow tie, since you can snap the bow tie portion off. Love that!

Welp, I’m outta here for now. Have fun shopping and I’ll see you next week for a review of Natural Balance Jerky Bark that you won’t want to miss!


Have a great weekend!


Does your dog have multiple collars?

This guy does.

Teton 2

Ok, so that’s a harness, but he really does have a lot of collars. Too bad you can never see them with all that hair.

Before I get into collars, I really should mention that the harness Teton is wearing in the photo above is the best harness on the market. Period. It’s the Premier Easy Walk Harness and it is a brilliant product. It’s changed the way we walk and I’ll never take The Little Blogger out without it again. I promise to post a full review of it at some point. I’ve slacked because it’s really hard to get good photos of Teton with collars, harnesses, etc. because he has so much dark, thick hair.  If you have any issues walking your dog currently (pulling, stopping constantly, refusing to walk) try this harness. It’s incredible.

When Teton isn’t wearing his Easy Walk Harness you can find him in either his Spiffy Dog Air Collar

Spiffy Dog Air Collar

or his Buckle-Down Death or Glory collar.

Buckle Down Dog Collar

When I’m at pet stores, I always check out the collar section. You never know when you might find a fun print that you (I mean, your dog) can’t live without. Here are a few cool designs I’ve had my eye on.

Good Dog Collar

“Good Dog” Dog Collar available at Sundance

Mustache Collar

Star Wars Collar

Little Stinker Collar

Mustache Collar #2

Another mustache option – Mustache Dog Collar available at Muttropolis

Batman Collar

Bat Signal Dog Collar available at Belts Direct

Silly Buddy Collar

Sew Retro Dog Collar from Silly Buddy

Silly Buddy made Teton’s custom collar/bow tie for our wedding and it is adorable.


Hmmm. Just realized that most of these collars are very boy dog specific. Next week I’ll find some collars for those sassy lady dogs!

Have a wonderful evening!
