BobSweep

With it being 2017, who needs to vacuum themselves these days?? 
Well have no fear, Bob is here....
Introducing the bObsweep PetHair Plus by BobSweet (My family was more excited for this than I was..I was hoping it was treats, but I guess keeping the house cleans matters too).
His name is Bob, and is a robotic vacuum cleaner and mop, with a ton of features. 
There are 6 different models, the Bob PetHair Plus, the bObi Pet, the bObi Classic, the Bob PetHair, the Bob Standard, and the Junior.
This is a 5 in 1 cleaning technology:
- Vacuuming
- Sweeping
- Mopping

UV sterilizing 
- Air purification 
Bob has a mass airflow high efficiency particle absorption (HEPA) filter  that removes 99.99% of airborne particles including mold, dust, dust mites, and viruses (like cold and flu).
Bob includes 4 cleaning modes: auto, quick clean (30 mins), touch up mode (15 mins), manual remote control. 
Inside of the box comes with soooo many different accessories as well. 
Scooby literally HATES vacuums, so it's nice to have one that is very quiet, and can do the job for us, and get those hard to reach spots. 
Thank you so much to the team at BobSweep. There are always Scooby's hair everywhere, so this will really help us out!
If you want your own BobSweep then check it out at www.bobsweep.com 
Happy cleaning!!

JRBP-July

This month, our topic is about fillers. Now I am sure when you think of the word "fillers" and dog food in the same sentence that it must not be a good thing. Speculations are all over the internet saying that fillers are unnecessary and not needed..but that is what we will find out in this post. For instance, grains that are in dog food (that are cooked of course) contain carbohydrates that give our dog's energy, and other important nutrients just like they do for humans. There have also been speculations about corn being a bad ingredient in dog food, but I have attached an image from Just Right by Purina's website that breaks down the purpose of corn in your dog's food here:
The cool thing about Just Right by Purina is that you have the option to decide whether you want your dog's blend to include grains, or be grain-free. Scooby's Blend has always been grain-free, just because that is what has always worked best for us. So instead of grains, Scooby's Blend contains cassava root flour instead. This ingredient serves as the main carbohydrate for energy for Scooby. Scooby's grain-free Blend is completely balanced to equal the same nutrients as a blend with grains would have. If you cannot decide if you should feed your dog a dog food with grains or no grains, then you can check out this link on their website here: Should I feed my dog grain-free food
Another argument in the pet food industry is which is more important: animal protein or live protein? Just Right by Purina explains that there is no better choice, that both options can equally have the same amount of animo acids that our dogs need in their diet. Just like human's, protein is a crucial part of your diet, and are the building blocks of amino acids. Another thing we really like about Just Right by Purina is they break down which proteins go into each blend we create. For example, I have attached this image from their website to show you what kind of combination of animal and plant protein goes into your dog's food here:
If you'd like to read more about the value of the two different proteins, then click here: Plant protein in dog food
There have been misconceptions about a couple ingredients in dog food that have been considered fillers but are not, and that is corn gluten meal, oat meal, and pea starch. Corn gluten meal has the starch, germ, and bran removed first, for it to become an excellent source of amino acids and protein. Oat meal contains nutrients such as fiber and Omega-6-fatty acids that helps your dog's skin and coat. Pea starch, (which is in Scooby's grain-free Blend) gives carbohydrates for energy. 
At the end of the day, we just want the best for our pets, and to strive to give them the best nutrition possible! That is why we have stuck with Just Right by Purina, and will never turn back!

JRBP-June with Q&A’s, answered by Purina expert, Dr. Gerardo Pérez-Camargo. MRCVS. PhD. Global Pet Welfare and Behavior Manager

This month at Just Right by Purina, we got to ask their experts a couple of our top unanswered questions that we want to know about our pet. The two questions I asked, have always been up in the air waiting to be answered!
Below are the top two Q&A’s, answered by our Purina expert, Dr.  Gerardo Pérez-Camargo.  MRCVS. PhD.
Global Pet Welfare and Behavior Manager.
1.       Why does Scooby never eat his food immediately after it is poured until his bowl, and this goes for both meals, every day!
A: Some dogs are fast eaters, some are not.  It might be that Scooby is not very food driven, or he knows that you will always provide food for him and he does not need to worry about it. The only cause for concern would be if Scooby changes his normal behavior or if he does not eat anything at all by the end of the day. Keep an eye on his body weight to make sure he remains healthy. 
2.      Why does Scooby always throw his bones up in the air while eating them?
A: Scooby seems to be very playful dog.  Sometimes dogs like to imagine that some objects might be alive and they have to chase them to catch them.   By throwing the bone in the air, it is like the bone becomes alive for a while and Scooby has to hunt it.
 Of course as a pet parent we are not perfect, and there are always things I do not know about, so it is awesome to learn something new. For a while, I always thought it was the food that I was feeding Scooby, and that he did not care for it, but any time I would switch foods, he would still act the same. Since we have fed Scooby his Scooby’s Blend by Just Right by Purina, this has been the quickest I have seen him finish his food. It still takes him a while to start eating (and since he is a such a smart and sassy guy, I think Dr. Perez-Camargo is right about Scooby knowing that he is always going to get fed twice a day, so it is always going to be there for him, therefore he will eat on his own time frame).
As for him always throwing his bones up in the air, this was always a question I wanted answered because I have never seen another dog do this before, and I also felt as if this would be a trait in cats, more than in dogs. Scooby has never done this with a toy or any other object before, so it does make sense that since it is a bone he can eat, he is trying to make it like live prey.
We are very fortunate to be able to have such a great dog food brand with excellent customer service and team that always are here to answer our questions and give us advice!
As always, you can head over to their website to learn more, or speak to one of their experts yourself!

JRBP-April

Hi to all! I wanted to show everyone how much I enjoy my own Scooby's Blend from Just Right by Purina! This month my choice of protein is chicken. Now normally chicken would not be our number one pick for the meat source, but we had so much success with the lamb and salmon that we wanted to see how the chicken tasted. So here we have me enjoying dinner time..
video
Now of course I do not eat my food outside, but I thought it would be better quality for the camera to do it outside than it would in the kitchen. I eat twice a day, one time in the morning when the humans are eating breakfast as well, then again in the evening when the humans are back at home enjoying dinner as well..so we are all in the kitchen eating as a family! Whenever I am not feeling as hungry that day, or not as excited to eat my food, we will mix in a little bit of canned food. 
My servings are usually a 2/3 a cup of food in the morning, and 2/3 a cup of food in the evening, that is what the Scooby's Blend recommending serving is! I have been consistently eating Just Right by Purina for over a year know I we have noticed a remarkable difference in my skin, fur, and body shape! As always, if you would like to create your own blend, then head over to www.justrightpetfood.com

JRBP-March

I am so happy to announce that I will be getting to work another year with Just Right by Purina. Since it has been a couple of months since we last posted about them, let me refresh your memory of who they are, and why I choose to eat their food.
Just Right by Purina is a custom, natural dog food tailored to your dog’s needs. All you do is head over to their website, www.JustRightPetFood.com and click on Create a Blend. From there you can create a profile for your dog and answer questions about their nutritional needs and preferences such as breed, age, activity level, eating style, type of stool, and more. They really break it down to get each blend as personalized as possible for your dog. Once you complete that, they will recommend a personalized nutrition plan that is geared towards helping your dog achieve his or her's goals. Then all you do is wait for it to be delivered to your door step, with free shipping every time.
A huge factor on choosing dog food, is making sure it is safe, good quality, and good tasting of course. Just Right by Purina believes in 100% natural ingredients with vitamins and minerals. They also believe in no animal by-products and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, because we deserve to know what goes into our dog food. Lastly, they believe in real chicken, salmon, or lamb as the first ingredient. We have tried all three protein options, and it is safe to say I have loved them all.
If you would like to give them a try, then just head over to www.JustRightPetFood.com and create your own personalized blend today! I have been eating my Scooby's Blend for over a year now, and daily I receive compliments on how great my body figure is, my muscular legs, and my soft and shiny fur. I give all credit to eating such a high quality dog food!! I hope you all will follow along with me this year to learn more about Just Right by Purina, and all of my adventures.

#OrateneOralCare Review and Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Oratene® and the BlogPawsTM Pet Influencer Network™. I am being compensated to help share information about Oratene brushless pet oral care products for Pet Dental Health Month, but we only share information we feel is relevant to our readers. Oratene is not responsible for the content of this article.

I have teamed up with Oratene®  Brushless Oral Care to sample and review their products..and host a giveaway! They are the #1 Veterinarian recommended products for pet dry mouth, that restores oral balance, reduces harmful bacteria and yeast, and dissolves plaque biofilm. Their line of oral care products include: Water Additive, Brushless Toothpaste Gel, Breath Freshener, and Antiseptic Oral Gel.
Our pet’s dental health should be just as important as their owner’s, so this is why we are so excited to try out Oratene. We are always looking for new products to try out for Scooby’s dental hygiene. I feel as if we have not gotten the best results from using a tooth brush and toothpaste from the pet store, so we were very intrigued to try brushless oral care.
The two products we have received and have been using the last month is Oratene’s Water Additive, and the Brushless Toothpaste Gel. We will be giving away one Brushless Toothpaste Gel to one lucky reader, all you have to do is fill out the Rafflecopter at the bottom of the page.

First of all, why choose Oratene?
They contain two patented, natural enzyme systems that inhibit harmful odor-causing bacteria and remove plaque biofilm.
Brushless enzymatic technology makes oral care easy.
Gentle formulation relieves, soothes, and protects.
Helps relieve dryness, irritation, inflammation, and redness.
Oratene’s products do not include any toxic xylitol, irritating alcohol, bitter chlorhexidine, or drying detergent.
Now a little bit about the products we have been testing out:
Oratene Water Additive
This is a flavorless concentrate added daily to drinking water provides a safe, healthy way to conveniently clean your pet’s teeth, freshen breath, kill germs, and remove plaque without brushing. This comes in a 4oz or 8oz bottle. All you do is squirt some into your dog’s bowl each time you refill, and watch the magic happen. The flavorless taste will make your pooch realize it is not even there.

Oratene Toothpaste Gel
This clear gel form provides maximum enzyme contact to inhibit harmful and odor-causing bacteria to remove plaque biofilm. The gentle formula relieves, soothes, and protects your dog’s mouth tissues against dryness, irritation, inflammation, and redness. This comes in a 2.5oz tube. The way we have been applying is by squeezing about half a strip on the human’s finger, and then rubbing it all over Scooby’s teeth twice a day, which he doesn’t mind at all. 
Combining these two products together have really shown results already. We have noticed Scooby’s breath has smelt so fresh, and his teeth look clean and white, while his gums look pink and hydrated.  
If your pet has been showing any symptoms of dry mouth: plaque and calculus, halitosis, dry cracked tongue, thick saliva, ulcerations or lesions, and inflamed and receding gums, or you just want to improve your pet’s dental health, then I recommended you to try out Oratene’s products, or enter our giveaway below!
