February is the month for love – between Valentine’s Day on the 14th and Love Your Pet Day on the 20th, love is everywhere. Around here though, we believe you should #LoveYourPetEveryDay. If you have pets, we hope that is already a given for you as well.
We like to be sure to show that love in appropriate ways. For us that means keeping our crew healthy; and if they are healthy that is one of the first steps towards happiness. One of the ways we like to show our love is through food and treats, but we also have to remember that feeding them the appropriate amounts of that food and treats is important, as well as the quality of that pet food.
Keeping your pets at a healthy weight is the best way to show them love. Just as with humans, they feel better, and it keeps their joints and hearts healthier. Providing them with daily exercise helps to keep their weight down as well, and the more they move and stay active, the more food and treats they can have!
Our friends at Chicken Soup for the Soul Pet Food believe in the same things we do. They believe we should love our pets every day, and that we can do that by providing them with comfort, love and appreciation along with natural, premium pet food to keep them healthy. That goes not just for pets in homes, but for pets in shelters looking for homes.
They donate a portion of all of their proceeds from the sale of pet food to the Humpty Dumpty Institute which supports organizations that feed and care for animals in shelters. A portion of the royalties from their new books – Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Very Good, Very Bad Dog, and Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Very Good, Very Bad Cat – will go to the American Humane Association.
Along with that, their new packaging, seen in our photos in this post, features pets from local shelters, as well as pets that have already found their forever homes. The stories are on the back of the packages. Chicken Soup for The Soul Pet Food is also the official dog food sponsor for the AHA’s Hero Dog Awards, and sponsor for the Therapy Dog category!
Our cat Samantha is proud that she has already been eating this premium pet food that gives back for some time now, and we are excited about the new grain free formula which she will be trying. Our pets know they are loved because we only feed natural, high quality pet food. Sam can be a fussy one, and it’s not always easy to get her to eat what is good for her!
Another way we show our love for our dogs is by training them. Training is fun and keeps them mentally stimulated. Whether it’s the trick training that Luke excels at, or the older girls just learning to walk better on leashes, we mix in Chicken Soup for The Soul Pet Food’s grain free kibble with other treats to keep them interested in learning.
By providing our pets with a healthy diet, lots of fresh air, exercise and training, as well as warm, cozy places to sleep, we think they know exactly how much they are loved. How do you show your pet(s) love?
