My regular readers have come to know and love Sebastian, the Border Collie-Australian Shepherd mix dog who became the newest member of the Parsons’ family this fall.
He has become my little shadow and we all love him so much. He’s sweet, well behaved, playful, and brings such warmth to our home. I’ve learned a lot about caring for a dog and specifically for Sebastian – learning his likes and dislikes and what makes his whole body wag with excitement. (A simple tail wag just isn’t always adequate in Sebastian’s estimation.)
With the holidays coming up, we’ve been trying to find the perfect stocking stuffer to make his first Christmas as part of our family special. As is true with most dogs, he seems to loves almost any treat and, as is also true with most dogs, he has doggie breath. It’s not bowl-you-over bad, like my eight-year-old’s socks, but it’s perceptible. So, when I was asked if I would like to try PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX™ treats (well, not me, Sebastian), I agreed. I did a bit of research on these dental treats and they had overall positive reviews from other dog owners, so they were on my list of treats to try anyway.
The first thing is that Sebastian absolutely loves them. I mean, I couldn’t even take pictures of the box without my little shadow being in my pocket.
Is this for me? Are you going to give me one?
We’ve been giving him one a day for a few days and he chomps them down. I like the fact that they have a slight chew to them, so he can chew and swallow them in manageable bites – and they help clean teeth and freshen breath, which is making holiday snuggles even better.
By the way, do you know how hard it is to take a good picture of a dog as he is consuming a treat?! There is no, “Hold it right there…”
Since Sebastian is over 30 lbs, he gets the large dental treats, but they do come in small/medium and toy/small as well, in addition to being offered in a variety of flavors.
Sebastian loves to be close to us and we love to be close to him and keeping up with grooming and oral care will make snuggling up this holiday season more fun for everyone.
