It’s been a long, cold winter, and we all have a touch of spring fever around here. Even Savannah, our sweet rescue pup, seems to be itching for nice weather and everything that means for her — namely long walks around the neighborhood, lazy afternoons napping by the pool, and playing catch in the front yard.
When the weather is nice, she prefers to spend the better part of her day outside, and I just discovered a new resource that makes shopping for outdoor (and indoor!) pet supplies easy and stress-free.
The folks behind Chewy are a group of passionate pet lovers who are dedicated to helping pets everywhere live their best lives by making shopping for pet supplies easy and stress-free.
I’m sure I’m not the only pet mama who has had to run out late at night to pick up dog food when we realized we had run out. At Chewy.com, you can actually put your pet food and other pet supplies on Autoship so you never have to remember to stop by the pet store again.
They have a huge selection with everything from dog food to prescription medicines, toys to treats, shampoo to dental care, and everything in between. I just placed an order for some new dog toys and other products to try out, and everything arrived within just a few days.
Our Savannah has white fur, and she tends to get those ugly brown tear stains on the fur under her eyes. I ordered these Angel’s Eyes Tear Stain Wipes, and they work beautifully to keep her fur clean and pretty.
We also picked up a pack of Nature’s Miracle Bath Wipes to wipe her down when she gets dirty, as well as a Port-A-Bowl Pet Bowl for her water when we’re outside. It will be so much easier than bringing her water bowl in and out of the house.
This portable bowl would also be great for anyone who likes to bring their dog along on their adventures.
Speaking of her water bowl, Chewy has this nifty bowl set called the Neater Feeder — this totally solves the pet food mess problem and protects your floors. File this under “I wish I’d thought of that!”
This clever feeder is designed with protective walls to contain splashes and spills, and it holds spilled food in the upper portion while spilled water drains into a lower portion so you can empty it later.
It is totally saving my wood floors, and best of all, it looks nice too. Ingenious!
While I was placing the order, I picked up some new toys as well. My daughters love giving the dog new toys, and they couldn’t wait to play with her when the box from Chewy came in the mail.
How cute is this stretchy purple octopus tug toy? I wish I had gotten them playing on video. Savannah loves this thing, and she will jump and jump for it.
We also got her a new KONG Classic and put some turkey in there for her to find. We used to put peanut butter inside, but that gets so messy. A little bit of meat works just as well, and it’s less mess.
Also by KONG, these Squeakair Birthday Balls are always a hit.
And this Frisco Push to Mute Squeaking Dumbbell Dog Toy is pretty nifty because it has a built-in button and strap to mute the squeaker if you get tired of the noise.
Savannah loves a game of tug-of-war, but her mouth is too small for the dumbbell end so we have to hold it the other way. It’s still just as fun. I’m sure a larger dog would love to play catch with it as well.
In addition to all that, we ordered the Petmate X-Large Tieout Trolley because we don’t have an electric fence at our new house. Savannah loves being outside, but she also loves exploring… a little too much! It’s so nice to be able to let her roam while keeping her in the confines of our yard.
Overall, I’m really pleased with Chewy’s selection and convenience. It’s nice to have an online resource for pet supplies so I don’t have to make a separate stop at pet store when I’m running errands.
Now we just have to wait for the weather to warm up so we can take all these fun new toys outside!
