Vurv has introduced a new line of bowls called Series 1. They’re very simple, and modern, following in Vurv’s sleek signature style and available in four bowl sizes and six veneer options. You can mix and match and keep your dog’s water separate from the food to avoid contamination.
All of Vurv’s products are handmade in Canada in a small furniture design studio.
I love this horn pet feeder by Arca — it’s so luxurious. And expensive, but I could have guessed that because just LOOKS expensive too. Each feeder is hand-crafted from high-quality Italian bull’s horn, so that no two are alike.
Talk about spoiling your pet!
Proportions is a new dietary service for dogs that claims to be a better, healthier way to feed your dog. It is a whole food nutrition program that offers a healthier alternative to traditional feeding programs through a customized meal creation just for your dog — delivered right to your door each month.
What makes a Proportions’ whole food unique is it offers a balanced diet featuring reduced carbs and starches with a reduced portion of high quality dry food. The meal also features increased healthy, natural proteins and vegetables via a ?stew? portion and is topped off with fruits and vegetables in ?harvest mix? portion of the meal. Are you getting hungry yet?
You can try the service with a risk-free trial from their website.
My dogs are on a special diet primarily for allergies and it is hard enough that there is only one store in my area that sells their food. Plus, it’s three times as much as the average grocery store pet food. Would you use a dog food delivery service like this if it was affordable? I think if it was the same as what I pay now (including delivery) I’d sign up for sure.
I spotted these squishy pet bowls today via Daily Kibble, and just think they’re so cute! You can scrunch them up and throw them in a suitcase or backpack and they don’t lose their shape. They come in human versions too.
NYC dwellers take note — FabDog has an MTA NYC Subway collection that features everything from a map food mat and raincoat to fun plushie toys, such as a metrocard and taxi. It’s so adorable, even non-New Yorkers will love it!
I would like to call this style of dog accessories “modern cottage.” The Chatham Collection from Up Country makes use of colorful, country colors with more modern style and easy interlocking fabrication. The finishes are also non-toxic.
As you know, I have two dogs — one big and one little. They share a water bowl, which means I have two large bowls and a small bowl. Most dog food mats are made for two bowls max, which is why I have always had trouble finding one to accommodate three bowls. Over the years I gave up searching and therefore left the bowls on the kitchen floor with no mat, but it became quite messy and frustrating to clean.
One day, while at Bed, Bath & Beyond buying towels or something of the sort, I spotted this boot tray for $7.99. I wondered if the bowls could fit on it. Since it was so cheap, I figured I’d give it a shot and bought it on the spot. Miraculously, all three bowls fit perfectly on it, with a little space to move around. It certainly isn’t the most attractive food mat I’ve ever seen, but it does the job.
The bonus is that the tray has a raised border, which keeps water spills and crumbs from ending up all over my kitchen floor. Who knew a boot tray could do double duty as a catch-all food mat?
