9 Easy Ways to Show Your Dog Love

Today is Love Your Pet Day, but Best Bully Sticks knows every day you can show your dog love in a number of ways! Here are 9 Easy Ways to Show Your Dog Love!

1. Take Your Dog For A Walk. Did you know a fit dog is 15% more likely to live longer? Taking your dog for daily walks in your neighborhood will not only make Fido a healthier, happier dog but can even curb behavioral and social problems. The same goes for playing around the house, playing fetch or tug! Plus, you'll get some exercise, too!

2. Belly Rubs! Dogs love and need one-on-one attention from their pet parents because it shows acceptance and can even take away fear and anxiety in a dog. But did you know petting your dog not only shows them lots of love, but releases a "feel good" hormones in your body like serotonin, prolactin and oxytocin? It's a win-win. 

3. It's the Little Things (in Dog Health): That old maxim "An ounce of prevention..." is ever so true for your dog's health! Seemingly small items of upkeep in your dog's health--like nail clippings, teeth brushing, ear cleanings, etc.--go along way for your dog's overall health. Not to mention all-natural flea and tick prevention and regular veterinarian checkups!

4. Treat 'em right! Giving your dog healthy food and treats can mean a healthier, fuller life for your pet. We suggest all-natural dog treats such as bully sticks, elk antlers and single-ingredient chews. Our high-protein options don't include the fillers, additives, preservatives and 10-syllable ingredient names you'll find at most chain pet food stores. They're fully digestible and come from the best sources of meat in the world--including grass-fed, free-range Brazilian beef!

5. Set Your Boundaries. Training your dog is a rewarding experience for both of you. Giving your dog boundaries and teaching proper behavior through simple positive training techniques not only engages your dog mentally and physically but strengthens your bond as dog and pet parent. 

6. Meet New Doggy Friends. If your dog is well socialized, take them to to the dog park! Teach your dog how to meet and become friendly with other dogs! This connection to their other species is a wonderful thing to witness. 

7. Go New Places! New sights, smells and experiences will make your dog's life a fuller and happier one. If your dog has anxiety issues, ease any "new" into their life slowly. 

8. Chronicle Your Memories. Take photos. Take videos. Make a scrapbook. Do whatever you can to chronicle your dog's life and best memories.  You'll always be grateful you did. 

9. Tell Your Dog You Love Them. They may not understand you, but it's always worth saying. Tell your dog every day that you love them!

Happy Love Your Pet Day! Enjoy the love today and everyday!

Weekly Drool Recipe: Coconut Butter via Kirby the Dorkie

Our good friend Kirby the Dorkie has come up with a great way to add exotic flavor to your dog’s meal that also packs a wallop of health benefits! Today Best Bully Sticks shares Kirby’s recipe for Coconut Butter! Check out the full recipe below.

Wondering what the difference is between coconut oil and coconut butter? Coconut oil is the oil extracted from the coconut where coconut butter is made from raw dried shredded coconut. When you puree the shredded coconut the coconut oil and coconut meat mix together and turn into a butter spread.

To make your own use unsweetened, dried coconut, either shredded or flakes, which turn into a somewhat smooth butter. Do not use desiccated, sweetened, reduced fat or fresh coconut. This does require a powerful food processor or blender to make.

So what can you do with coconut butter? Spoon coconut butter straight from the jar and mix in the meal time kibble, add it to baked treats, melt and pour over sweet potatoes or baked carrots, freeze for pupsicles, the list is endless. Coconut butter isn't just for dogs either!  Humans can use it as a coffee creamer, a spread for toast, in curry dishes, and smoothies to name a few.

Try making different flavored coconut butters: mix 1 tablespoon carob powder with 1/4 cup coconut butter, 1 tablespoon peppermint oil with 1/4 cup coconut butter, or 1 tablespoon cinnamon with 1/4 cup coconut butter.

Prep Time: 15 - 20 minutes    Cook Time: None    Yields:  1 cup

Ingredients

2 cups unsweetened coconut, shredded or flakes

Directions

1. Place the coconut in your food processor or blender and mix on high speed scraping down the sides often for about 15 to 20 minutes or until a thick paste is formed.

The coconut will go through three stages - first the texture will be finely shredded, then thin out into a grainy liquid, then finally turn into a somewhat smooth, thick mixture. The finished butter will seem runny but when you taste it the texture will be like a thick, slightly grainy peanut butter.

2. Pour the butter into a small glass jar with a lid and enjoy.

*If it refuses to turn to butter add just the tiniest bit of coconut oil to the blender.

*The consistency depends on room temperature. In warm climates it is a thick liquid. In cold climates it solidifies in to a hard, wax-like substance. To bring it back to a butter consistency zap it for about 10 seconds in the microwave.

Store in a glass jar in the pantry for up to at least two months.  Don’t keep it in the refrigerator because the cold hardens it.
