Whether your pup has a sensitive tummy or you just want to feed her some guilt-free snacks, these grain-free recipes will make delicious treats that will keep fresh for approximately one to two weeks (although they will probably be gobbled up in no time at all!).

Pet Bed Dimensions

Due to the squishy nature of pillows, please note that sizes are approximate and may vary slightly.

We HIGHLY recommend measuring your pet prior to ordering to avoid costly return shipping fees.

Dog Collar Dimensions

Collars should be tight enough that they can’t slip off, but loose enough to fit a few fingers in between the neck and the collar.

Using a soft measuring tape, measure around the base of your dog’s neck. For optimal comfort, add roughly two inches to the measurement. You should be able to fit two fingers in between the tape measure and the dog’s neck.
