I was gifted a Poof Pet Activity Tracker to review, and wow – this is some cool stuff! Read on and check out the bottom of the post for 50% off your very own Poof!
Have you ever used a FitBit for yourself? It’s essentially this, but for your pet. As the photo above states, it tracks their activity by motion, calories burned, sleep schedule, and more! It’s waterproof, has a LONG battery life, and it’s super lightweight so it’s not heavy on your dog (or cats) collar!
There are two shapes to choose from: the Pea, which is a large circle, and the Bean which is a rectangle. I chose the Pea in lime green and this is what it looks like…
I think it looks neat! I just installed the app and got everything started tonight. I used Benji as my subject to test on, and I look forward to seeing how he does! The app is free, and it syncs to your Poof via Bluetooth. The app itself is fun! It’s almost like Instagram in the sense that you can view other pets photos, but also their activity stats. It’s fun and competitive!
There is a whole section for YOUR pet, where you can add the type of pet food they eat, their weight, age, ect. You put all their information in.
It tells you how many calories they should be eating, and how active they should be based on these stats! You select a “score”, which is a number that will be your goal to achieve throughout the day, to get you started. It says that for normal pets it’s about 55-99. It preselected 79 for Benji.
First impressions: I’m very impressed! The app is fun and easy, the Pea was super easy to install, and so far everything looks great. I’ll be doing an update in the coming weeks to show you his stats and how it is going!
It definitely motivates you to reach your goal and it’s great to promote healthy exercise in pets, and even cats can benefit from this product!
If your pet is sleeping longer than normal, this can be a sign of illness, and the Poof will let you know if they are sleeping too much.

I have something very exciting to share with you today. I will be reviewing NomNomNow, which is a slightly cooked, wholesome dog food service delivered straight to your dog.
This is a question I get a lot…
“But…what about COOKED foods?”
I spoke about “Raw vs. Cooked” in a post a few weeks ago, and it got great feedback. A lot of people wanted to know what products were out there for wholesome, fresh dogs foods – besides raw.
I get it – kibble is convenient. That’s why a lot of people still feed dry dog food, so what about the people that don’t have time and aren’t able/don’t want to feed raw? I have something amazing to share with you.
NomNomNow is a fresh dog food delivery service that is both convenient and absolutely fresh. Right now they are beta testing delivery to the East Coast, so I got my 30 days in one delivery, but you can choose to have your meals sent every week or month via auto delivery for the West Coast. You can cancel or change this easily within an allotted time frame on their website.
NomNomNow let me get my hands on their food in exchange for my honest review so I could give you guys a product that fits your needs, and so far – I’m impressed. Like, really!
Registering online was easy peasy – you are asked information about each individual dog you own. This is great because their meals can be portioned to their specific weight needs and activity level!
Milo must have known what I was doing. Check out the excitement on that face!
I put in their information, and automatically got a confirmation email saying my order was received and that they would be working on my meal as well as the date it would be delivered!
I also got an email letting me know when the order shipped, and once it was already delivered – great communication on their end. But, that’s not all!
The first great thing to note is that even though their meals are gently cooked, meaning they aren’t raw, all the essential nutrients aren’t cooked out either because the temperature isn’t high enough. You are able to feed them fresh, wholesome, great quality foods with convenience!
Second thing is that they are pre-portioned to my dog. As I said above, it’s portioned to Benji and Milo’s weight goals and activity levels, and I don’t have to portion it out myself. Each bag fixed per meal!
I decided to go with Porkalicious Potluck for Milo. The ingredients are as follows:
Pork: Protein, Vitamin B6 & minerals
Potatoes: Energy producing & potassium packed
Kale: A superfood for your dog’s diet
Green beans: Fiber, Vitamins A, C, K & minerals galore
Zucchini: Vitamins B6, C & K, magnesium & potassium
Mushrooms: Phosphorus, Potassium, Zinc, Copper & Manganese
NomNomNutrient Mix**: Expertly formulated nutrition blend
Fish oil: Omega Fatty Acids for a healthy coat
For Benji, since he is used to duck and is allergic to beef type products, I decided to go with Tasty Turkey Fare. The ingredients are as follows:
Ground turkey: Excellent source of protein
Brown rice: Carb & mineral morsels to keep up energy
Carrots: Vitamin A – and more – for keeping eyes healthy
Spinach: Full of dietary fiber, vitamins, folate & manganese
Egg: Exactly the protein, calcium, iron & zinc dogs need
NomNomNutrient Mix**: Expertly formulated nutrition blend
Fish oil: Omega Fatty Acids for a healthy coat
Their meals are never pre frozen, and ingredients are sourced from the USA! All of their recipes are formulated by Dr. Justin Shmalberg, Board Certified Veterinary Nutritionist, so you know you are getting a balanced meal!
We got the package and I swear the boys knew what came!
They were so excited to find out their package also included samples of NomNomNow’s other 3 formulas. “More food for me?” Their eyes said.
They had their first pre-portioned package, the 25%, to start their transition. I was curious what Milo would think of the turkey since I know he loves pork, so I tried that for both of them.
Since they are eating raw right now, I was very curious to see how they would react to this food mixed in their regular meals. I know they love raw, but would they eat around the slightly cooked meal? Skip it altogether?
Not a chance!! They gobbled it down, and were searching for more!
I stuck the packages for the next few days in the fridge, put the rest in the freezer and that was that. They are SLIM and super easy to store. They are super sleek, so it fit right in with my other frozen products.
We will be doing another review in 2 weeks to give you an update on the process and how the boys are doing. I’ll be checking their teeth, coats, breath, etc… I want the details, and I’ll share them with you!

We were so excited about this product, and Nifti let us do a review!
Have you ever had a dog leash that’s hard to clasp? Or a dog that pulls so much that the latch opens and the dog ESCAPES? This is where Nifti SafeLatch steps in. They invented a magnetic leash that takes that worry away for you. It’s super easy to put on, and it has a magnet inside that the D ring on your dog’s harness/collar “SNAPS” too!
This is where it connects to the back of the latch, where the magnet is pulling the dogs harness/collar to it!
And voila!! Attach and safe dog walking! 🙂
The SafeLatch was tested to be “escape proof” and it exceeded 660lbs!! There’s no pulling out of this one. Below, Milo is our model to demonstrate. The Nifti SafeLatch Leash is attached to his “EasyWalk” harness, since he does like to pull!
How handsome does he look? Thank you to my sister for modeling her legs so I could take the photos!
I think this leash is a must have for all dog owners that have a habit of escaping or pulling. My only note is that the actual latch is a little heavy so I wouldn’t use on teacup breeds, but small-XL should be totally fine! They have it in blue, pink, neon orange, etc.
Buy your Nifti SafeLatch in various colors:
Let me know in the comments below, does YOUR dog pull on the leash?

This post is not about how cute my dogs are in a box train (even though that IS true!), it’s actually an awesome product review for a new treat the boys tried. If you want to see more photos of the boy’s on their Chewy train, scroll down. For the product review, read on!

Caru Salmon Baked Bites
The boys love food in general, but I haven’t quite seem them as excited about a soft baked treat as I did with this one. Not only are the ingredients guilt free, but I feel good knowing it actually benefits their health to feed it to them! It’s also soft enough to break into smaller pieces for training chews (hello, Milo’s classes!)
As noted on the bag:
- USDA-inspected salmon is the number one ingredient
- Made with real salmon, blueberries & cranberries
- Carefully selected ingredients
- Grain, gluten and wheat free
- No GMO ingredients
- No corn, soy or animal by-products
- Made in the USA from a family-owned company
- Formulated without artificial preservatives, flavors or colors
- Prepared in small batches
This made my heart soar. Eat on, boys!
Choo Choo Chewy’s…
Not only did the boy’s review those tasty treats, but they were eager to participate in this months influencer contest based on crafty things we can do with those Chewy boxes! You know the feeling – when a delivery arrives and EVERYONE know’s its a Chewy box. 😉 How about turning it into a train?
Thanks for coming aboard! We hope to see you next time the Chewy train comes into town.

pooBagger Review – An easier alternative to scooping that dog waste.
Well guys, it was about time that we did a review on something that happens to everyone who owns a dog… picking up doggy drops!
Oh, the fun presents they leave for us…
For those that have a hard time bending over, they made an amazing tool for you! And it’s super easy too. Its called…
The company contacted me and asked if I could review this product, and I didn’t hesitate to say yes!!
I get tired of bending over to pick up the dog poop, or using those “rakes” that everything sticks to and doesn’t really work. We are getting real here, guys!
I wrapped the poop bag that it came with around the white ring, but the white ring is what keeps the bag attached to the “scooper” part. The instructions were VERY easy to follow…
It just clicked on with a SNAP! and then poof – I had a nice pooper scooper with a long handle!
You use the rake on the bottom of the scooper to get between the grass blades and everything goes right into the poop bag attached at the bottom! When you are done, you just snap off the bag, and VOILA!! Toss in the trash. 🙂
Isn’t this neat? I was pretty happy I found it. It worked well! I didn’t want to show photos of me actually picking up the boys’ gifts (sorry, folks!) but the product itself is well made and impressive.
It’s made of polymer composite material, and you can use any dog-poo bags to attach to it! Newspaper bags, you name it. The companies aim is to “reuse and repurpose what is already available in order to minimize landfill usage.”
Now THAT is something I can get behind!

Lolawawa’s Dog Boutique – The perfect bracelets for #dogmom’s out there. See what charms we looked at!
Disclaimer: We received free product from P.L.A.Y dog toys in exchange for an honest review. I only work with brands that I love and use for my own dogs, and would never recommend something that I don’t believe in. Thank you for your support!
This weekend was a great weekend for the boys. Not only did we have the 4th of July to look forward to, but we received our package of P.L.A.Y dog toys! As excited as I was to show them, I wanted to get an authentic reaction so I did not show the boys until I had my camera out and ready.
Here is what we got…
“MY toy. Don’t touch.”
“Mom… does he have something cooler than me?”
“You mean… there are TREATS in these?! Don’t tell Milo.” Meanwhile, Milo is distracted…
Benji: “Oh no! He found out.” Milo: “Let’s see how far I can stretch my tongue to get these treats!”
“Finally, some peace and quite with my favorite toy!”
Benji: “Actually, I love all the toys!!” Milo: “SQUIRREL!”
“Catch me if you can!!”
In all honesty, I love these toys. They are so cute!
Not only that, but as a #dogmom, it matters to me that we have toys that last long. We’ve had to constantly go through toys, but these seem very durable as they use cross stitching and upon further research, they are also eco friendly! Their toys (and bedding) are filled with “PlanetFill” which is a polyfiber made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.
Thank you P.L.A.Y for caring about our pups… and our planet.

Happy Sunday, dog lovers!
I wanted to talk about this amazing boutique I found out about this week. Where have they been all my life? No clue. Better late then never though!
Let me start by saying this post is NOT #ad or sponsored. I love what this company is doing, so I wanted to share their message with you all!
So what is Lolawawa’s? They are a pet boutique that specializes in charm bracelets for dog lovers. So, basically you all need one. They don’t just have bracelets, though. They have shirts, bows, bandanas, collars, anything your heart desires. But alas, their main brand is the bracelet.
I emailed the company asking to get some more information about how they got started. I saw from their website that they donate a portion of the proceeds to charity, so I wanted to learn more about that. You can’t feel guilty about shopping if it helps a good cause, right? 😉
I received a reply from Joey, who owns the company with his mother. Already my heart melted. As quoted per his email, he states:
“My mother and I started this company a little over a year ago with the idea of selling one-of-a-kind products for dogs and dog lovers… to raise money for animal rescue efforts. We offer an assortment of pet products, curated from skilled artisans around the country, as well as an array of unique dog owner products (i.e. Shirts, Mugs, Totes, etc). A portion of our monthly profit is donated to Social Tees Animal Rescue, a not-for-profit based in NYC but with a global footprint. They carry out rescues across the country and internationally.”
What a wonderful effort. Something I also thought was super fun is that they offer a monthly “Charm of The Month” Rescue Club where for $9.99 you get a rescue bangle if you sign up and monthly charms to match. Another cool fact? Members get a LIFETIME member discount card of 20% off all future purchases.
Joey also said that each new charm symbolizes a new contribution to animal rescue efforts, and can be added to the bracelet. They give a portion of their profit from the club to animal rescue as well.
Now THAT is a company I want to support. I already got one for my mother’s birthday. But shh…

I had seen the trailers for this film, but wasn’t really sure 100% what it was about. I didn’t do any research on it before hand, but I knew it was about a dog in the military and that’s all I needed to know.
I was happy I took the jump and saw the film. For those who don’t know, its a movie about a girl (Megan Leavey) and her getting assigned a combat dog (Rex). They will be partners and go to Iraq, he will sniff out bombs and weapons there and she will guide him. Their journey doesn’t start off easy, but how they establish their friendship was adorable.
The film was easy to follow, moved at a nice pace, and featured Tom Felton who was Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films. He had an American accent, which wasn’t the best but it was a nice surprise to see him in there.
What would I have changed? Megan is said to have a best friend who *SPOILER* died, and this dramatically changes life for her, but we never got to see this said friend nor see any of their bond so it was hard for me to feel sad for her about an unknown face. I get that it wasn’t about that, though.
It definitely sheds light on the amazing work that these working dogs do, and it must not be taken lightly. It also sent a nice message about labeling a dog “aggressive” under the wrong circumstances.
Sometimes all it takes is understanding.
