Trying Doggy Acupuncture for the First Time

Early one morning last week, Shiner woke me up with some strange behavior. She's never acted like this before and it really gave me quite the scare. I had no idea what on earth was wrong with her.

I woke up because she kept jumping on and off the bed. She does this sometimes, so I just figured she was trying to get comfortable and went back to sleep. But she wouldn't stop doing it, so I started watching her more closely. 

For two hours, she jumped on the bed, laid down, got up a few seconds later, jumped down, laid down, got up a few seconds later... she would not stay in one spot for more than a few seconds. She finally fell asleep - I think from exhaustion - but she didn't look very comfortable. So I took her to the vet. She needed her ear recheck anyways, and this was some really unusual behavior.

A Happy Litter Box = Happy Cats #CLUMPandSeal

This post is sponsored by ARM & HAMMER™ and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network™. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about ARM & HAMMER CLUMP & SEAL™ available at PetSmart®, but Pawsitively Pets only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Arm & Hammer and PetSmart are not responsible for the content of this article.
One of the most important parts of keeping cats is making sure that they have a clean, odor free litter box. Not only does this ensure that the cats will continue to use their litter box as they should, but it keeps the house smelling fresh and not like a stinky cat litter box. This is extremely important to me because I do share a home with my father who is likely to complain about litter box odors should they occur.

A Happy Litter Box = Happy Cats #CLUMPandSeal

Fortunately, I have not had any litter box complaints from the cats or my family since we first adopted Callie back in the beginning of 2015. She came with her own cat litter. That cat litter was ARM & HAMMER CLUMP & SEAL. She liked it and so did I. So I continued to purchase the litter from then on.

This past Summer, we added a new kitten to the house. Now we have a multi-cat household. Roadside loves his ARM & HAMMER CLUMP & SEAL too. He makes frequent visits to his litter box daily, so I'm glad I have a cat litter that can help combat the smell of his bathroom habits. He seems a little too excited every time I pour fresh litter in the box and I could barely keep him out long enough for a quick photo.

Pet Blooper Reel #10

It's once again time for another one of our Pet Blooper Reels! Each month, we share a few pet photo bloopers with you all. I'll jump right in and start with Shiner dog.

Shiner is trying out a new shampoo from Isle of Dogs, which we will share more on next month. I got a few photos but this one didn't turn out so great. I wanted Shiner's face in the picture, but she was hiding behind the bottle because she doesn't like shampoo.

6 Categories of Enrichment for Your Dog #PAW5EnrichedLifeChallenge

By adopting a dog, we assume the typical dog parent responsibilities of feeding, walking, vet bills, play time, training, and more. This is great and helps ensure our dogs stay healthy and happy, but dogs can and do get bored. That's why adding enrichment to our dogs' lives is so important.

What is enrichment and why is it important for your dog? Enrichment is a means to add mental and physical stimulation to your dog's life with puzzles, games, training, and socialization. Enrichment activities are meant to tap into your dog's natural canine instincts and behaviors.

PAW5 is launching their #PAW5EnrichedLifeChallenge to dog parents. PAW5 is dedicated to providing enrichment for dogs through thoughtful product design and education. This program will challenge dog parents to provide their dog with 5 days of enrichment to challenge their furry friend's mind and body in healthy and rewarding enrichment activities. We are joining the challenge starting on October 17th and hope you will join us!
