Win an Isle of Dogs Holiday Prize Pack! #Giveaway

Are your dogs ready for the holidays? For all the family fun the holidays bring, we all know that with all the joy and excitement can come a fair bit of stress for us AND for our dogs. Whether it’s due to the disrupted schedule of visitors and special meals at our home, travel to visit friends and relatives, or the anxiety caused by New Year’s Eve fireworks, stress happens.

We love the anti-anxiety products from Isle of Dogs. These products, designed to create beauty and wellness from within including treats for skin care and shampoos and conditioners for coat care, are all sourced and made in the US. These natural, plant-based calming products are formulated to help your dog relax in tense situations–and that includes the holidays at home and on the road.

Next week, we’re headed down to south Texas for a holiday visit at a nursing home where three of John’s cousins and his aunt reside–and, as always, we’re taking along Irie and Tiki for the visit. They love visiting both relatives and the other residents at the home–but that means that they must smell holiday fresh for their visit. We carry the Brush Spray on all our trips; it features Isle of Dog’s signature scent lavender + lemon balm. Not only does this spray help reduce shedding and static and maintain a silky, healthy coat that stays cleaner, longer, but the smell is just delicious.

We’ll also be carrying Isle of Dogs’ Chillout Soft & Chewy Dog Treats. These soft treats are easy to break into smaller treats for frequent rewards for calm behavior, especially important during tense times. These calming treats feature lavender, lemon balm, and vanilla.

Of course, another kind of stress comes from worry about fresh breath–help keep your dog’s teeth healthy and her breath fresh for holiday company with Isle of Dogs’  Dental Chews, part of their new nourish™  line. Made in the USA, these grain-free chews feature two layers. The exterior is a grooved layer made with new, triple-action Pecodent™, a proprietary blend of finely ground pecan shell, kelp and turmeric extract that provides natural fiber, and helps clean teeth–and helps prevent the dreaded doggie breath. Inside, each chew has a functional layer dedicated to supporting overall oral health. The chews are available in three sizes to fit your dog.

Are you ready to get your dog holiday ready? One lucky DogTipper reader will win all three Isle of Dogs products!
