Penn + Pooch Spring Pet Clothing Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

If you’re a long-time reader then you may remember that I did a post about my friends at Penn + Pooch last year. Well now I’m back to share their Spring line of pet clothing with you because I love their products so much!

Penn + Pooch Spring Pet Clothing Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

I love that their pet clothing is high quality and oh-so-stylish! This time I got to test out the Emerson in Multi + Naval Stripe and the Drew in Seaside Blue + Soft Gray.

The Drew is a great addition to my spring & summer wardrobe and comes in a variety of sizes to fit big and small dogs.

It also comes with Penn + Pooch ‘s signature back flap making it a cinch to wear overtop of any walking harness.

What do you think? Do I look sexy enough to be lounging by the pool this summer?

My favorite though has always been the Penn + Pooch hoodies. There’s something just so great about snuggling up in your favorite hoodie on a cool Spring morning.

This one even has a fun little stripped surprise inside the hood.

The Emerson in Multi + Naval Stripe has a little less stretch in it than the Red + Gray hoodie I already own from Penn + Pooch so make sure you choose sizes accordingly when ordering this style.

All their hoodies also come with their signature back flap – my favorite feature!

When Your Dog Helps With Gardening

When Your Dog Helps With Gardening

I have a secret to tell you about my parents. Something that not everyone knows……they have GREEN THUMBS!

Gardening with Ammo the Dachshund

And apparently not the good kind of green thumbs…because they’re experts at growing weeds! Yes, it’s true. My landscaping at home was looking a little sad. But don’t worry, this year I whipped my parents into shape and helped them add a little curb appeal to our home.

Gardening with Ammo the Dachshund

It was no easy task though, and took a lot of effort on my part – including trips to Lowes.

Gardening with Ammo the Dachshund

Many, many trips to Lowes!

And trips to Terrain for inspiration.

Trips to the garden center for plants.

And then the hard work really began. In case you’re wondering, yes I did actually work…

But after all that hard work, my yard was looking a bit more presentable.

Gardening with Ammo the Dachshund

So presentable in fact that I’m sure all the neighbor dogs are just lined up waiting to “mark it”.

I’ve got my eye on you neighbor dogs! I’ve got my E..Y..E.. on you.Ammo the Dachshund

Martha Stewart Pets Natural Dog Treats Review & Giveaway

Martha Stewart Pets Natural Dog Treats Review & Giveaway

Disclosure: This post and giveaway is brought to you by Martha Stewart Pets. All opinions are my own, but I only share products I think you will love.

Martha Stewart Pets Natural Treats Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

Martha Stewart Pets recently came out with a line of Natural Dog Treats available exclusively in Petsmart Stores and online. I was thrilled when I got to test out a few of these goodies from the Treat Shop, because this dog never says no to cookies!

Martha Stewart Pets Natural Treats Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

Martha Stewart’s line of treats was inspired by the delicious bakery goodies that humans can’t get enough of. It was discovered during testing that dogs love flavors like Peanut Butter Cookie and Pumpkin Pie just as much as people do! And I can totally confirm that!

Martha Stewart Pets Natural Treats Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

The Martha Stewart Pets Natural Dog Biscuits are American-made and contain a simple list of natural ingredients.

The Peanut Butter Cookies were totally calling my name (It’s true, that peanut butter smell makes me go weak in my knees), but they also come in 5 delicious flavors; Cranberry Muffin, Pumpkin Pie, Oatmeal, Banana Bread, and Peanut Butter.

A small crunchy cookie size, they’re easily broken into smaller pieces for training purposes.

Friday Fetch: Dog Bowties & Purses

Friday Fetch: Dog Bowties & Purses

I’ve been a big fan of Silly Buddy Bowties for a long time now. In fact the first bowtie I ever owned came from Silly Buddy. So when I recently saw that they partnered with Jenny N. Design to make a line of matching purses I knew my mom would be lusting after one for Dog Mom’s Day.

Dog Walking Light Belt Review & Giveaway

Dog Walking Light Belt Review & Giveaway

Disclosure: This post and giveaway is brought to you by GoMotion. All opinions are my own, and I only share products I think my readers will love!

GoMotion LiteBelt 100 Review & Giveaway // Dog Walking Light // Ammo the Dachshund

My new friends over at GoMotion recently sent me their LiteBelt 100 to take for a spin. The LiteBelt 100 is a wearable light that can make walking your dog at night bright again!

GoMotion LiteBelt 100 Review & Giveaway // Dog Walking Light // Ammo the Dachshund

Sadly it was a bit too large for me. But not to worry, mom informed me that it would actually work a lot better if she wore it on our evening walks.

GoMotion LiteBelt 100 Review & Giveaway // Dog Walking Light // Ammo the Dachshund

The 100 Lumen Cree LED light on the front offers 3 adjustable light levels for spot to flood beam control. You can even rotate it to angle it up or down.

GoMotion LiteBelt 100 Review & Giveaway // Dog Walking Light // Ammo the Dachshund

One of the nifty features of the LiteBelt is that not only does it have a spotlight on the front, but it also has these handy rear lights that can make you more visible at night to cars.

GoMotion LiteBelt 100 Review & Giveaway // Dog Walking Light // Ammo the Dachshund

The great thing about using one of these LiteBelts instead of a headlamp or flashlight is that it comes with lots of extra storage for all your dog walking essentials (like poop bags, keys, phone, treats, etc) and gives you your hands free (for doing things like picking up dog poop…..how fun!).

GoMotion LiteBelt 100 Review & Giveaway // Dog Walking Light // Ammo the Dachshund

The belt itself comes in a breathable mesh with reflective trim and not only comes in the Hi-Vis Orange, but also a fun Coastal Blue color. And it’s even water resistant, so you can’t use that as an excuse not to walk your dog in the rain!

The LiteBelt runs on AA batteries (that are included) and even has a battery life indicator on the front to warn you if it’s running low. It runs up to 54 hours when used on the low beam setting.

GoMotion LiteBelt 100 Review & Giveaway // Dog Walking Light // Ammo the Dachshund

Overall I thought the LiteBelt from GoMotion would be a great accessory for anyone that walks their dog at night.

You can fetch the LiteBelt 100 (as well as other wearable lighting options) from GoMotion for $59.95 and as a bonus you can save 20% off with code GMEVENT20

And now for the best part…

GoMotion LiteBelt 100 Review & Giveaway // Dog Walking Light // Ammo the Dachshund

Friday Fetch: All-In-One Smart Dog Collar

Friday Fetch: All-In-One Smart Dog Collar

I’m already a “GPS Dog”, with my trusty Trax collar that I love, but I couldn’t help but take notice of the new indiegogo campaign to fund Dogtelligent’s Connected Collar. The Connected Collar is a a proposed GPS Tracker, Activity Monitor, Safety Collar and Training Device all in one. Just check out the video below to see what it’s all about!

Friday Fetch: All-in-one Smart Collar // Ammo the Dachshund

Friday Fetch: All-in-one Smart Collar // Ammo the Dachshund

The most interesting thing to me was the ability for the Connected Collar to simulate a leash tug through vibrations – to perhaps keep your dog from running into traffic, or going too far from home. I can’t wait to see how these collars perform once they make it into production. There’s still 25 days to get involved with funding the Connected Collar into production, and eventually you’ll be able to fetch them from DogTelligent.
