Door Buddy Review

Picture taken from Amazon

Do you have a dog that indulges in your cat’s food? If you do… isn’t it the worst!? I have a dog who loves to feast on everything and anything that resembles food. Louie, my pug, absolutely loves to sneak into his sister’s room and eat her food when nobody is watching. It caused him to have an upset stomach and to gain weight. I couldn’t figure out how to get him to stop doing it and I tried all of the tricks out there! Soon, it became very annoying having to pick up the cat food, place it on a desk, and remember to put it back down when I was able to watch Beatrice (the cat) eat.

I was googling solutions and that is when I came across the Door Buddy . It is SUPER easy to install and has prevented Louie from entering the room. Therefore, no more cat food snacks, stinky gas and stomach pains for him! The strap is adjustable to make the door space larger or smaller depending on your cat’s size. Beatrice has had zero issues entering the room and leaving when she is done eating. It is the perfect solution for my home! Who knew this tiny little knick knack would work!

But, this doesn’t just prevent dog’s who eat cat food… it also prevents them from entering the litter box and having a cat poop snack as well! Yes, some dogs eat cat poop and it is super disgusting. Louie, thank goodness, has not indulged in that delicacy. But, for dog owners who’s dogs love that type of thing, just move their litter box into the room that has the Door Buddy!

Best Friends by Sheri Bed Review

Yup! You read the heading– I was one of those people who HAD to see what the Best Friends by Sheri bed was all about for myself. I was one of those people who took a ride on the facebook-hype train and caved. I can’t explain it, but this fuzzy pet ball bed going viral was extremely intriguing.

The bed is designed to be a donut shape with a faux-shag material to make your pet feel warm and comfortable. It is machine washable, which is a huge plus, and is also described to give orthopedic support.

I purchased the medium, in the color frost, for Louie and Beatrice and needless to say… THEY LOVE IT! Yup, you read it right people… Louie and Beatrice love the soft, fuzzy and silky feel to this bed. In fact, they lay in it together and separately.

The bed itself is super soft and silky. The sides are very fluffy and have a lot of stuffing. The middle is not as stuffed. In fact, Louie sinks into it (probably touching the ground) but then cuddles up into the sides. It works for us and he really enjoys sleeping in the bed. I personally don’t see how it is orthopedic or has orthopedic properties. But, I’m not a scientist or doctor so I am just simply going by the physical feel and the “feel” doesn’t come across like it would be super supportive for a pet who needs a supportive bed due to specific medical reasons.

They sell the bed on amazon but I personally bought mine from Chewy.com

Dog Harness: For The Escape Artist

Louie wearing Ruffwear Dog Harness

Yep! You read the heading right. There is a dog harness for our little fur baby butts who tend to escape out of the regular joe-schmo harnesses. Since Louie was little, he has pulled on the leash. Now, before you think to yourself, “get him trained”- I did. Lots of times! We tried everything to get him to stop pulling and each time he would either escape, pull harder, or break the harness all together.

How does such a tiny pug break a harness!? Hell if I know! But, it happened and he has escaped numerous times. Each time, I age from baby strokes and heart attacks. However, I FINALLY found the holy grail of harnesses for dogs and its called RUFFWEAR – Web Master, Multi-Use Support Dog Harness, Hiking and Trail Running, Service and Working, Everyday Wear

The harness is designed to be super sturdy and padded in all of the right places to make sure your dog is comfortable. It has two points on the back where you can clip the leash, and there are two buckles that go under the stomach. Unlike traditional harnesses that only have one strap (which Louie would downward dog and pull out from it), the Ruffwear harness has a second strap to act as a security measure incase the dog pulls out of the first! However, we never had an issue of Louie escaping or even trying to pull out from this one!

I am not the only one who loves this harness. The reviews on amazon speak for themselves. If you need a super heavy duty harness that is intended for trail hiking, working, everyday wear, security, etc. then this is the perfect solution.

As always, this is my own personal experience. I advise people to do their own research and talk to the company with any questions before purchasing.
