De-shedding Dogs with Trooper & Ammo the Dachshund

This month my friends at Chewy.com sent me the Furminator Dual Brush to take for a spin. As you know it’s Spring, which in the dog world can also be known as shedding season! While I’m not the kind of dog that needs a ton of de-shedding because of my short coat, I still need brushing occasionally. My buddy Trooper on the other hand, he sheds enough to clothe a whole other dog!

De-shedding Dogs with Trooper & Ammo the Dachshund

With the Furminator Dual Brush we get the best of both worlds. A pin brush on one side for longer coated dogs like Trooper, and a nylon bristle brush on the other side for shorter coated dogs like me.

Brushing 2 dogs with 2 very different coat types was never easier!

You can fetch the Furminator Dual Brush from Chewy.com where it’s on sale right now for under $10! Ammo the Dachshund

How to make a Fake Rabbit Hole for your Dog

Disclaimer: this is NOT a sponsored post, but it does contain some affiliate links.

It’s no secret that I am OBSESSED with holes. After all, my breed was originally bred to go down holes and hunt down badgers.

ammo the dachshund digging

And go down holes I do! My mom has had to pull me out of many ground hog holes around the farm over the years, and because of my affinity to go hunting whenever I feel like it I now wear a GPS tracker whenever I’m on the farm. While my tracker gives mom piece of mind, she’d still prefer my escapades kept me a little closer to the barn, which is why she decided to dupe me!

So I decided to share how my mom made me a DIY Fake Rabbit Hole so all you other dogs out there won’t get tricked like I did!

DIY Fake Scent Hole for Hunting Dogs // Ammo the Dachshund

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Rabbit Scent (or any other scent your dog might prefer)
  • Spray Bottle
  • Water
  • String (I used bailing twine)
  • Paper Towel
  • Shovel or Post Hole Digger

DIY Fake Scent Hole for Hunting Dogs // Ammo the Dachshund

Step 1: Choose a spot to dig a hole about 2 feet deep. Make sure you choose a spot where no one could fall in it (placing a marker when it’s done is helpful too). A spot near a bush or tree makes it more believable to your dog as well.

As you can see just the sight of a hole was enough to get me interested!

Step 2: Mix your Rabbit Scent with some water in a spray bottle and mist it into the hole. You can make it stronger by foregoing the water if your dog doesn’t seem interested.

Step 3: Tie a paper towel to a string and mist with the rabbit scent. Drag the towel to and from the hole to leave a scent trail for your dog to follow.

Trooper and I picked up on the rabbit scent trail right away.

But only one of us really cared…..I’m pretty sure you can guess who!

Well I feel pretty silly getting tricked with a fake hole, but I did have a really good time digging to my hearts content. So fake or not, I don’t regret it one bit. Well except for the fact that it landed me in the bath a few hours later!

Do you think your dog would be tricked by a fake scent hole?

*Be advised that fake animal scents can attract other wild animals as well. So be aware of where you are putting it, and make sure to supervise your dog especially if they are out at night.Ammo the Dachshund

Wares for Bears Review & Giveaway

Disclaimer: This post and giveaway is brought to you by Wares for Bears. All opinions are my own, and I only share products I think you will love!

Wares for Bears Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

As a dog who loves fashion I’ve learned that there is one thing that will make or break my look…and that’s accessories! Today you are in luck, because I can’t wait to share with you some of my newest accessories from my friends at Wares for Bears.

Wares for Bears Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

Trooper and I received some awesome handmade bandanas from Wares for Bears recently, and they totally made us feel the part of farm dogs.

I mean just look at all that fabulous fringe!

Wares for Bears Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

The Wares for Bears bandanas are all made to fit your own dog’s unique neck size with a snap closure. No need to tie them around your dog’s neck like a traditional bandana.

Wares for Bears also donates 10% of their sales to the Seattle Humane Society, a local animal rescue organization that helps to feed, shelter, care, and re-home dogs in need. Now that’s pretty cool!

Wares for Bears Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

They come in sizes for big and small dogs, and in many various patterns and styles. Trooper and I picked out a few that had that fun farm feel to them.

The really cool part is that they are reversible too. So for the price of one bandana, you can get not one, but two looks…
