Will you be gifting your dog and their doggy friends some treats this Halloween?

If your dog is friendly and loves greeting people at the door on Halloween then consider making cute doggy treat bags for all of the furry friends that come by to trick or treat. There are a lot of options you can do for the goodie bags and then simply toss in some Milk-Bone, Milo’s Kitchen or Pup-Peroni dog treats. All of your dog’s furry friends will want to stop by your house multiple times every Halloween. *Check out this fun video showing how to make some easy and cute doggy treat bags!

Our Top 3 Halloween Pet Safety Tips:

1. Just say NO to chocolate…for your dogs!

We all love our Halloween sweets and treats, but treats for humans are not the same as treats for dogs. Chocolate can be quite toxic to dogs and should be stored safely away from them. Dogs don’t have to go without any treats at all, there are some great treat options available for them such as Milk-Bone, Milo’s Kitchen and Pup-Peroni. Your dog is sure to love receiving any of these made in the USA treats while trick or treating this Halloween. We at Pet Coupon Savings love to save money and these dog treats frequently have coupons available so you can save and make your dogs happy at the same time!

2. Keep pets inside and away from the front door.

The only person that can keep your pet truly safe is you. As their pet parent you know their behaviors and tendencies. If your dog gets overly-excited when strangers approach or seems to get stressed out amongst new people then consider keeping them inside your home away from trick or treaters. Your dog will find comfort in being in a familiar place and will feel safe with you near by.

3. Make sure your pet has their collar on with their ID tag.

Just in case your pet gets spooked this Halloween and happens to wander off during the festivities you will want to make sure that they are wearing their collar and ID tag. This will increase the likelihood of them being returned promptly back to you. If your pet is wearing a costume this Halloween make sure to still have their collar and ID tag on them.

Halloween is quickly approaching and your pets can join in on the fun with these treats from Big Heart Pet Brands. Everyone loves a gift for every occasion, so why not include your pets in the treat giving and they too can have a fur-tastic Halloween!

Keep Your Pet Active Rain or Shine with #NutriencePets

by Pet Coupon Savings on October 15, 2014

This post is sponsored by Nutrience and the Pet Blogger Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about the Nutrience, but Pet Coupon Savings only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Nutrience is not responsible for the content of this article.

With fall and winter comes colder weather and rain which makes it less desirable to go outside and be active. Just like we need a boost of encouragement to stay active year round our pets need our help to stay active and healthy. When I’m cold I just want to snuggle up and keep warm (like these cute puppies below), but by being active we can raise our body temp and warm up quickly.

3 Tips to Keep Your Pet Active Rain or Shine:

1. Make sure your pet is getting proper nutrition.

I don’t know about you but when I don’t eat several meals a day I get pretty cranky and lethargic. It can be hard to find the energy to stay active when your calorie tank is running on empty. Also, when you eat proper nutrition you find yourself turning less and less to junk-filled food. The same goes for your pets, if they are filling up on the good stuff they won’t need to eat junk dog food to combat their hunger. We highly recommend Nutrience Pet Food that is made with the highest quality ingredients from North America and they have a ‘No Bad Anything’ promise because they are committed to quality wholesome nutrition.

Nutrience2. Bad weather? Exercise indoors.

If the weather outside is frightful, your pet can still fit in some delightful exercise while indoors. Your pet’s need for being active does not change due to the time of year. When your pet doesn’t find an outlet to release their energy they may become hyperactive, anxious or aggressive.

You can rotate your pets toys so they don’t become bored playing with the same old toy over and over again. Playing fetch doesn’t only have to be an outside game. You can play it with your dog inside on a much smaller scale with a soft toy for them to retrieve instead of a ball. Playing tug can also help teach a dog self control while they burn some energy.

3. Have a social dog? Set up a doggy play-date!

If you have a dog who is friendly and enjoys socializing with other dogs then set up a doggy play date. Contact some of your friends who have dogs and set up a day to meet up and play at your local dog park or in a dog-friendly back yard. Just like we as humans benefit from socializing and connecting together our pets benefit and grow from socializing with other pets and their owners.Nutrience Pet Food

Your dog will be ready to be active in no time when fed a high-quality food like Nutrience. You can purchase Nutrience online through Amazon and save yourself a trip to the store in the cooler weather. There’s nothing like having heavy dog food shipped right to your front door!

How do you and your pets stay active during the fall and winter months?
