We are so excited to be a part of this year’s 4 Gifts for Pets blog hop and even more excited that it is a GIVEAWAY!
We love the holidays. The cooler weather means more time outside (this is the best time of year in Arizona), everyone cooking for their families means we get lots of goodies, and then there are presents! Some like to give, some like to receive, but either way, the holiday season is for everyone!
BUT, unfortunately, sometimes giving (and getting) gifts can get a little out of control. Bigger isn’t alway better. And sometimes less is more.
Enter the 4 Gifts concept.
We had never heard of the 4 Gifts concept before being invited to be a part of this Giveaway and Blog Hop, but now we LOVE it.
Created by “mommy bloggers”, the 4 Gifts concept is designed to limit the budget breaking “getting” aspect of the Holidays by focusing on just a few gifts that matter: something they want, something they need, something to wear, and something to read.
In the case of dogs, since they aren’t huge readers (LOL), but they love to eat, the 4 Gifts for Pets is: something they want, something they need, something to wear, and something to eat.
Our 4 Gifts are…

Something they WANT:
This thing seems AMAZING. Soooo, we haven’t tried it ourselves, but our friends (and Blog Hop hosts) at Kol’s Notes say it is the “best part of our dog puzzle collection”. There are videos you can watch to see how it works AND a money-saving code (save $20 using code kolchak-20). Oh, and there’s a money-back guarantee…even though our friends think there’s no way you would ever need that part!
Something they NEED:
Snoozer Luxury Console Pet Car Seat Large
Every dog needs a comfy bed for car rides, but this bed is AMAZING. It lets your dog sit up front with you out of the harm’s way of air bags by giving them their own seat over the middle console! There are safety straps that secure the luxurious microfiber and foam bed to your middle console, and a safety strap to secure your dog to the bed. The high back also prevents your dog from jumping out. PLUS, the microfiber cover is removable, washable, and comes in a variety of awesome colors! You can also order it on Amazon (bonus!).
Something to wear:
Hurtta Extreme Warmer Dog Winter Jacket Size 10in
We LOVE the Hurtta products. If you follow us on Instagram, you already know that we gave away a Hurtta jumpsuit earlier this year. BUT it would be nice to wear this new, super warm, lovely red Hurtta Jacket over our comfy, fleece Hurtta jumpsuits… You can get yours on Amazon.
Something to Eat:
Stella & Chewy’s 18oz Chicken Freeze Dried Super Meal Mixers
We can’t say enough good things about the Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers! We prefer the Chicken Meal Mixers, but they come in a variety of flavors if your dog has food sensitivities. Since small dogs can only get so many “treats” without creating a weight problem, we love that we can use this nutritionally complete freeze dried food as training treats! This way, we get to use high value food that dogs love without adding to their waistline by also having to give meals. No more kibble and treats. Instead, we use Stella & Chewy’s Freeze Dried! Order it on Amazon.
BUT, we want your pet to get the things on their 4 Gifts wishlist this year!
That’s why we’ve teamed up with a bunch awesome dog bloggers and our friends at CleverPet to bring you some seriously amazing prizes. This season, you could win:
A CleverPet Electronic Dog Puzzle
1 of 3 Gift Cards

When we lived in New York, Honey used to love long walks in the snow. Now that we live on a boat, we try to make sure we’re near a beach so Honey can play in the sand.
