Sharing is caring!

If you know our family, you know we love our dogs.

Many thought we were crazy 4 years ago when we adopted two puppies with birthdays just weeks apart from a pet rescue.  While Koda, our crazy Catahoula Leopard Dog, is the protector of our home, it's Sophie, our little sweet YorkiPoo, who is the true queen of the home.

While things can get a bit crazy with these two and their antics, we know they’re living their best life with the help of Pet Food Express, California’s trusted pet expert.

Got Questions…Pet Food Express Has Answers…and Toys!

Owning a new pet usually means you have lots of questions, and Pet Food Express has your answers. Their animal-loving customer service team will help you find everything you need to happily welcome your new pet into your family.

We recently visited our local Pet Food Express, in Thousand Oaks, California, in search of new, healthful treat with all-natural ingredients for our Catahoula. Since these treats will be used for training, we wanted to be sure we were feeding him a pure, natural treat, and not a “junk food” treat.

The Pet Food Express team member suggested Boo Boo's Best, a 100% all-natural, whole-food pet treats that her dog loves. As you can see, Koda loves them, too.

We're always working with him on patience and the wait command, and waiting for this delicious treat is no easy task.

Another selection we picked up for our dogs was Kiwi Kitchen's variety of freeze dried treats. These treats are protein packed and naturally rich in vitamins with only one ingredient. Meat. You can't go wrong there.

While training is work and mental stimulation for our Catahoula, we love to end the day on a high note with a fun, little game of catch. This guy is the campion of catching any and every treat that is tossed his way. Yum!

Everyone knows that exercise is key to supporting healthier pets, and some of our dogs' favorite ways to exercise can be done at home with their favorite toys from Pet Food Express.

While Koda loves to go for a good run around the neighborhood, Sophie (aka tiny legs) does better playing fetch with her favorite toys in the front yard. Her toy of choice is this Hugglehounds HuggleMutt Roscoe Knottie Tough Plush Dog Toy, a durable chew toy with Tuffit Technology lining for extra durability comes with multiple squeakers to keep her entertained.

Catahoula's are an extremely high-energy, working breed that needs lots of attention and entertainment, which is why we always have multiple chew/tug toys to keep him busy all day long. Products like this Amazing Pet Products Amazing Pet Knotted Tug Rope w/ Handle and Mammoth Pet Products Mammoth TireBiter II With Rope have stood the time with our boy, which is no easy task with a Catahoula.

As much as we love to play, we also love a little rest and relaxation after a long day of frolicking. Nothing is more relaxing to our little girl than snuggling up in this Pure Comfort Pillow Gray Dog Crate Mat by Inovatex, LLC. Based on her expression, I know this soft and cozy pillow mat will be loved by your furry friend, too.
