The best high quality, single ingredient dog chew

Our dog loves a great chew treat, and it helps to keep his teeth clean too. We have tried a number of chew-treats, but two single-ingredient chews are our favorites: dried sweet potato and bully sticks.

  • Dried sweet potato chews. Loaded with lots of great vitamins to keep your dog healthy. Sweet potato has vitamins C, D and iron and is great for humans too.
  • Bully Sticks. These last a bit longer than sweet potato chews, and don’t have as much sugar as sweet potato chews to keep your dogs teeth healthy too. Odor-free versions are of course nice and might save your nose and a slightly increased cost.

  • BestBullySticks.com is our go-to place for cheap bully sticks. Look for the odor-free versions as well as the “free shipping” mixed-packs to save some extra cash.
  • DIY Sweet Potato Dog Chews recipe from Food.com is a great and super-simple way to make customized chews for your pup, and hey, if you make them yourself you can try a taste as well! On top of that, making them yourself helps to make sure you know what goes into your pets diet — organic sweet potato chews can keep not-so-great pesticides out of your dog’s body.

What are the best dog beds under $100?

Updated 2/15/2015

We searched for a great dog bed for our pup and tried several dog beds until we finally found a bed with ridiculously good reviews, and decided to buy — we were pleasantly pleased.

Check it out here: Comfy Couch Pet Bed, although we’ve also found it at SkyMall (yes, that gadget-ey magazine you see inflight). It really is the best pet bed we have owned (feel free to check out the 1,899 reviews and counting at Frontgate for further proof), and the spectacular construction certainly helps in why it’s such a great pet bed.

Looking for some other options? Here are three of the best dog beds available on Amazon, all with 4.5 stars or more, all under $100.

1. Happy Hounds Oscar Orthopedic Dog Bed
Orthopedic Dog Bed
Modern design, very firm foam orthopedic dog bed will keep your pup comfy and ready to romp. Eases ailing joints for the older dogs out there as well.

2. Majestic Pet 52-Inch Suede Bagel Dog Bed
Donut Dog Bed
Anything described as “majestic” is sure to please as this bed does. A giant bean-bag like bed will keep one (or two, or three?) dogs happy, cozy dozy.

3. K&H Memory Large Foam Cozy Sofa
Memory Foam Bolster Bed
Finally, a bed similar to our top pick, the K&H has memory foam which is all the rage lately, and rightfully so. Feels great, and has a great bolster to keep those dogs heads up and ready to go.

 

With that, we wish your the best in finding comfort for your canine companion. They will love you given some of these best dog beds, and given some of them you might as well cuddle up right there on the bed too.

What’s the easiest way to feed my dog a pill?

My signature method for giving our pup a pill is via his favorite treat — a freeze-dried puffed-up liver treat. Just insert the pill into the center of the liver treat (it’s relatively accommodating for smaller pills — large pills, well, you’re on your own), and your dog will swallow the whole thing well, whole. In my opinion, way better (and tastier for the dog) than “pill pockets” or other oddball treats that may contain more than just a single ingredient like liver treats.

Our favorite are the Belly Rubs liver treats, but I am sure others would work as well — just make sure they’re relatively light and airy treats, otherwise a pill won’t easily insert into the treat.
