HAPPY PUPSGIVING!

Tis is the season of feasting and gathering!! While you’re planning and preparing for the festivities, also keep in mind how your dogs will react to situations and all that delicious food. Here are a few tips and tricks that will help your canines feel at ease during this busy season.

buzzfeed-pugsgiving

STUFF YOUR TURKEY, NOT YOUR DOG

We think we know the drill, but when you see those puppy eyes staring back at you, it’s hard to not give little Thanksgiving treats to your pet. We want the best for our dog, but let’s face some serious facts — turkey drippings, skin, and gravy can cause pancreatitis. Turkey bones are dangerous to the intestines, and chocolate, along with other holiday foods, are toxic. The list can go on and on, and if you’re not sure, stick to dog food. You both will rest easy knowing you did the right thing.

Puppy Eating

EVEN THE TRASH SMELLS TASTY

Can you imagine all the leftover scraps that are dumped into your trash by the end of the night?! Most importantly, can you imagine how delicious that must smell to a dog?! When you are not looking, your furry friend might try to get his/her paws on that irresistible scent. We suggest moving the kitchen garbage to a place you know your dog can’t get to, and of course taking it outside at the end of the night so there’s no midnight snack attacks.

cobalt-witj-emojis-2

got toys?

Holiday season is here where loved ones gather and dog toys scatter! Toys are a great way to keep your pooch distracted while you prepare for evenings like Thanksgiving — and of course there will be gatherings to follow all the way until the New Year! We certainly don’t want you tripping over your lovely pet while you hold a platter of amazing food! Dogs love new toys and old ones too but here at ZippyPaws, you can find a wide variety to choose from. Anything loud, crunchy, and bright will be the ticket!

hero_48_dog_under_table_6007-medium

table manners

Dogs are family but remember, they’re not human. Remind your guests to not feed your pet. Best bet, feed your dog a hearty meal before guests arrive. Something you know they’ll love! Get your fur buddy nice and full before the show starts. At the end of the feast, pick up all plates and table ware and don’t forget to cover up those leftovers! Just like the trash can, the table, and any open containers, can be easily accessible!

sad-puppy

tagged and flagged

Image the background music or television on, visitors arriving, lots of laughter and loud conversations, people walking all over the place, and then there is your dog. Your dog is in the middle of all this commotion and doesn’t know what to do with himself/herself. Door opens for a second and there he/she goes! Out for some fresh air and independence! Make sure your pup has his/her collar on for the day with all your updated contact information. Accidents happen so best to be prepared, just in case!

diy festive Doggie treats

Well, since you can’t feed your dog all the delicious turkey treats, how about making them something just for being a special friend that they can feel included in the festivities? Best part, these are the same recipes you use for dinner! This is a drooly delicious one!

2/3 cup deboned, skinned, unseasoned cooked chicken, shredded
2 eggs, lightly beaten (no milk)
1/4 cup diced cooked carrots
1/4 cup cooked mashed pumpkin
1/4 cup cooked diced green beans

Combine all ingredients in an oven-safe casserole dish that has been greased with a bit of olive oil. Microwave for 3 minutes or until eggs are set, or bake at 350°F for 10 minutes. Cool thoroughly, invert casserole dish onto a plate, and present with pride to your pup!

DOGGIE getaway

As much as some of us need to escape from the hectic day, dogs need it just as much. Your dog will be very thankful if he can escape to his safe place and you will be relaxed knowing he’s safe and sound, behind a closed door. Find a quiet bedroom and stock up the space with your dog’s food, water, their favorite bed and of course toys! (Featured ZippyPaws toy – Burrows for distraction).

Howl-o-ween Safety Tips For Dogs

10-31-14-the-best-halloween-puppies19

Halloween can be a festive and fun time for children and families. But for pets? Let’s face it, it can be a downright nightmare. Dogs can have a tough time adjusting to the unfamiliar faces and spooky noises.  Keep your Halloween fun and festive and forgo the stress and dangers this year with these easy tips.

halloween-puppy-chow

CANDY IS A NO NO!

For every door that opens with those little hands reaching inside that candy bowl, is a drooling trickster waiting for a little piece of heaven to drop. Dogs can be very sneaky! So be careful where that candy bowl sits and how it is handled throughout the night. Chocolate, especially dark, is considered poisonous for pups. Just best to keep ALL candies away and out of reach or you may be having to reach for a vet bill. However, we do have something that might help, it’s not candy but we do offer Donutz as a sweet alternative. ZippyPaws Donutz with embroidered “sprinkles” and toppings make them look delicious, just like candy…but without the sugar guilt and calories! 😉

geronimocobalt_halloween_zippypaws-415

SOUND EFFECTS, WIRES, AND STROBE LIGHTS…OH MY!

Humans get a kick out of all the creative decorations and we thrive on getting spooked. However, dogs can be a different scenario. If you plan to decorate, it is best to keep any wires or cords out of sight, also keeping a close eye on your dog to ensures no material are ingested. The ghostly, high pitch screeches, and crazy strobe lights might agitate your poor pup and cause them to rebel ending in a teething, torn up, really scary, mess.

dOGGIE DAY OUT!

To begin a day of Halloween preparation, take your dog out for a while before the festivities begin. That way, when the trick-or-treaters start coming around, your pet won’t be so amped up with anxiety.  A great way to release some of their daily energy is taking them out for a long walk before the trick-or-treaters run out. ZippyPaws Climber Leashes will be perfect for your quick doggie date. They come in both 4 and 6 feet and have been tested to withstand over two tons of weight,  in case your pup might be sensing some pre-Halloween excitement.

rocke-ranch_summer16_toy-puppies_reese-372-1

Scooby doo got scared too!

We bet you have an amazing costume ready to go or at least planning for something awesome! But hold on, did your dog approve of your decision? Before showing off your creative costume skills, show it to your dog first. With everything else going on for Halloween, you wouldn’t want to add to the chaos by walking in the room and accidently giving your pet a scare of its dog years! So yes, best to let your pup warm up to the different, scarier side of you.

geronimocobalt_halloween_zippypaws-187-edit

IGNORANCE IS BLISS…FOR YOUR DOG!

If you are too concerned about how the night might turn out, we suggest to surround your pet with their favorite toys and treats to keep them occupied, possibly behind a closed door, for safety assurance. ZippyPaws can help you out, our new Zippy Pumpkin with Bats Burrow hold three mini bats that squeak, guaranteed to keep them investigating until they figure out how to get those little critters out. Not to mention, a great way to celebrate the season! As an owner, shopping for your dog and trying out all the new toys with them, this might just be the coolest part of the Halloween season! Check out our holiday variety here!

BE PREPARED FOR ANY EMERGENCY!

There is a lot of commotion as well as unfamiliar objects and faces that might make your dog anxious. The idea of your dog escaping might happen so having the proper identification will save you from a world of panic. Make sure the information is up to date and you have all your necessary contact information handy. Know who the emergency contacts are at your nearest shelters and veterinarians. It helps to be prepared for anything.

Our goal is to make sure you and your best fur-friend have a safe and fun Halloween. Remember, your pet will go along with whatever you are doing with no real idea of what’s to come. Easing them into your Halloween plans and making sure you are prepared for any situation will ensure you and your furry friend are having fun!

We wish you all a safe and fun Howlloween!

Celebrating National Dog Day!!

Nothing wins over a heart like a man’s best friend. National Dog Appreciation Day represents a special cause, not only for dogs but for the owners as well.

“It’s a day to be grateful for all the wonderful things dogs bring into our lives … the unconditional love, the companionship,” says National Dog Day founder, Colleen Paige.

How You Can Celebrate National Dog Day
With our 7 tips and ideas, you can show your deepest appreciation for these remarkable animals:

dogs-for-first-time-owners-main

1. SHOW EXTRA AFFECTION:

Dogs love us unconditionally. They can forgive, forget and love us again even after we have been through some rough times. Reciprocating that affection could be a simple scratch behind the ears, check or neck. Belly rubs can be quite favored as well. How about some quality time watching TV? Invite your pup to sit with you and lay their head on your lap, cuddles are the best. It’s the small things that build a big bond.

cupcake_03 (2)

2. THROW A PAwTY:

Make it epic! Send out dog invites, make treats for all the fur friends, play dress up, and send your guests home with a good bag of ZippyPaws toys — of course! Our Donutz are colorful and irresistible, which make the perfect take home treat! They also come in mini size too! Everyone will be able to squeak their treats all day long and your pup is guaranteed to make lots of friends! A great way to allow socializing while enhancing a playful and positive environment.

@RockeRanch & ZippyPaws-42

3. BUY SOME PRESENTS:

You hardly need another excuse to go shopping, but take National Dog Day to pick up a few new toys for your dog. Dogs can be rough on their toys, and tattered toys pose a risk to your dog’s health. Make a habit of tossing the old toys and replacing with a new batch of intriguing toys each National Dog Day.

ZippyPaws offers a great line of tough toys, such as the Monkey RopeTugz. The extra tough mountain climbing rope can withstand hours of tugging and play! This will also help build a stronger bond, not to mention, exert all their energy for a great night’s sleep!

Nothing shows appreciation more than toys where you both can play together!

senior-dog-training-126398924

4. TREATS AND REWARDS:

A smart puppy is a happy puppy. Break free from the daily routine and try teaching your dog a new trick each week! Giving positive reinforcements along the way build confidence and trust and will help you, as the pet parent, build patience along the way. A great way to achieve this is by giving rewards. Try different treats to see which is their favorite!

Brody-Peanut-Butter-Doggie-Bones (2)

5. make a tasty treat:

A way to a dog’s heart is their stomach!

We have a famous, super simple but doggylicious recipe you can try! Contains only four ingredients and a blender. Mix 4 cups yogurt (flavored or plain, non-fat if needed) ½ cup creamy peanut butter, 2 tablespoons honey, and 1 ripe banana (mashed). Blend together and freeze! Since dogs cool down with their tongue, this will surely cheer them up while the weather is still hot — plus it’s super tasty!

6. Get Outside

Dogs love the outdoors! Spend an afternoon enjoying the great outdoors together with a hike, long walk or head to a nearby beach and let your pup cool off with a swim Bring along some of your favorite ZippyPaws toys for a game off fetch in the water. Make sure to bring plenty of water and treats to reward good behavior!

Has your pup never learned how to swim? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Find everything you might need with our Adventure Gear, from life jackets to cooling vests and treat bags!

7. DONATE

It’s okay if you don’t own a dog, you can still participate in the festivities and show your appreciation in other ways. Honor National Dog Day by giving $5 to your local shelter. Many shelters and rescue groups also list needed items, such as blankets and toys, on their websites. Every little bit helps.

10 Things to Do With Your Dog on Memorial Day!

Memorial Day weekend is coming up, which means extra time for you to spend with your pup! If you are planning to celebrate this national holiday with your pet, here are some helpful tips on how to have a good time and be safe together!

1.) The BeachProcessed with VSCO with a6 preset

The beach is always a popular vacation spot! The sand, the water, and the beautiful sunshine is an amazing combination! However, safety in the water is a big priority for us dog lovers. Don’t spend another minute worried about the possible dangers with the ZippyPaws Life Jacket! Our jacket will keep your dog safe in or around the water and reflective stripes keep your dog visible while in the water. The jackets come in sizes XXS to XL with built-in padded handles for easy assistance when needed. Your friendly buddy will love you to pieces for caring so much about their safety.

2). CampingDog Camping

What about going camping for the weekend and bringing your pooch? We do have to remember that midnight potty breaks can happen and it can become pretty dark with just the stars above us. Our LED Light-Up Safety Vests are great for situations like this. The vest will keep your dog visible and has configuring flashing or steady lights that only require 2 AA batteries. They come in sizes small, medium and large. This will allow you to keep a focus on your pet while they do their business.

3). HikingIMG_0205

Who loves a great walk more than you do? Your pet sure does! But what we don’t like is carrying heavy equipment. ZippyPaws makes it easy to hike with the Adventure Bowl. The ZippyPaws Adventure Bowl is a portable bowl that holds either food or water. The bowl folds neatly to fit in your pocket and is waterproof to avoid drying time. This great accessory comes in colors of forest green, desert red and volcano black. Once you get your hands on these, you will never leave home with one again!

4). Home Sweet HomeDog Tricks

For some, Memorial Day is about staying home with your loved ones and relaxing. How about spending time teaching your dog new tricks in the backyard? Our Adventure Treat Bags are perfect for training sessions like these. Much like the Adventure Bowls, they are also foldable and have a drawstring closure to keep the treats fresh. The belt loop and clip help keep your hands free so you can focus on interacting with your dog.

5). RunZippyPawsLeashPhotosBC-5

Are you and your dog morning runners before the sunrise? Why not take a brisk morning jog? ZippyPaws Climbers Rope Leashes are perfect for your active pet. Just in case there is a runaway squirrel so tempting to chase after, our Climbers Leash can withstand almost two tons of pressure for those strict stops before the run turns into a sprint! We carry both 4 and 6 feet with colors ranging from black, blue, red, yellow, green, pink and purple. We also offer heavy duty Bull Snap leashes for those extra strong dogs that try to outsmart us humans!

6). BarbequeGeronimo_ColorBlock-425

The park can become an all-day fun filled event which is always a good time! But we all are aware of how hot the weather can get and unfortunately our friendly pets do not have the luxury of removing any layers of warmth. That is why we created the ZippyPaws Cooling Vest. These vests have long-lasting polymer crystals that activate when soaked in cool water and slowly evaporate cool air for hours. We designed the cooling vest to come in a lightweight material to eliminate any extra bulk and weight.

7). ExploreJEN_9285-2 copy

Exploring different recreations nearby that you normally wouldn’t get the chance to do is a great opportunity on Memorial Day! The ZippyPaws Adventure Backpack is designed for carrying water, food and other essentials for days like this. These backpacks have evenly distributed pockets for loading weighted items and has breathable fabric to keep dogs cool while strapped to back. This way, you can hold onto your pet while they hold onto their gear!

8). SocializeDog Squad

Dogs need social time too and dog parks are the perfect place for this! Find a local dog park for your friendly pet to meet new buddies on this lovely holiday! Don’t forget though, that some parks do not supply waste bags but ZippyPaws can help you out. Our Leash Bag Dispensers hold 1 roll of waste bags and the dispenser attaches to most leashes by Velcro straps. These handy poop savers are low profile and come in cool colors like forest green and hibiscus pink!

9). SwimmingDog-In-Swimming-Pool-Wearing-Sunglasses-Images

The ZippyPaws Life Jacket is great for swimming lessons. Holster up your dog while they do the doggie paddle and adjust to their own strength and courage! After, you can pride their hard work with a treat using our adventure treat bag that have kept those yummy snacks fresh while you both had fun in the water!

10).  Shopping, of course!MemorialDayGif

New Year Resolutions for You and Your Dogs

happynewyeardog

Most New Year’s resolutions center on self-improvement, but have you ever thought about a resolution to improve the relationship between you and your dog?

betheperson

We’re not saying you need to invest a significant amount of money or time with your dog. It might be as simple as spending a few extra minutes of alone time with your furry four-legged friend, or maybe taking them out to enjoy a nice treat (like frozen yogurt!) on a weekly basis.

Some other ideas may be regular grooming appointments throughout the year, a trip to the beach when the weather gets hot, providing healthier diet options, or giving them a toy (ZippyPaws of course! 😉 ) every now and then. Whatever it may be, we’re sure your dog(s) will appreciate the extra attention. Because, after all, our dogs love us unconditionally — whether we’re having good or bad days.

Wishing you all a happy and joyous New Year! Now, it’s time to put on our party hats and live up the rest of 2015. 😉

Merry Christmas from ZippyPaws!

ZippyPaws Holiday Gift Guide

IMG_1521

Still haven’t finished your Christmas shopping yet? Luckily for all you last-minute shoppers, we’ve rounded up the best dog toys for your pups. We have everything from the best toys for chewers, to the best toys for new born puppies.

P.S. We advise you to read til the end of the article for a nice Monday surprise. 😉

1.) Best Toys for Puppiesmoneal

Miniz
The search for the perfect puppy toy just ended thanks to ZippyPaws Miniz. Zippy Miniz are very small, single squeaker toys that are the perfect size for puppies. The unique size and shape make it easy for small mouths to play with.

The best thing about Miniz is that they come in a pack of three, so when your pup has had too much fun with one, there are two more to spare. Miniz come in 19 different characters (including pandas, hedgehogs, sharks, crabs, monkeys, bunnies) so your pup has an endless amount of options to choose from. Miniz range from $7.99 to $9.99. These critters are the perfect toy for even the littlest of paws—and mouths—to squeak all day long!

2.) Best Toys for Seniorssugarthescottie

Grunterz
ZippyPaws specializes in several different types of squeakers. As dogs get older they tend to be less active and appreciate their toys more. We’ve created Grunterz with large (older) dogs in mind. Grunterz are large plush toys that “grunt” when pressed. Each Grunterz is stuffed and has a loud grunting noisemaker inside.

Grunterz don’t make the same high-pitched noise as a squeaker, they’re easy to carry, and are great for senior dogs to cuddle with! Not to mention, they’re fluffy!

ZippyPaws Grunterz are sea-themed, which means you can have a piece of summer all year long. The three characters include: Alvin the Alligator, Oscar the Octopus, and Finn the Fish. Grunterz vary from $12.99-$15.99

3.) Best Toys for Biters & Chewerskelly_bove

Jigglerz
Introducing a new way to squeak! Jigglerz are made with ZippyPaws exclusive noisemakers that squeak when shaken! Added crinkle paper inside head and tail makes them even more fun for dogs. Each toy is lined with an extra layer of tough Cordura material and cross-stitched for durability.

Double the layers for double the fun and double the destruction time! The cross stitching acts as a barrier so dogs can’t tear apart the toy as easily. There are eight different Jiggler characters and retails for $9.99 each.

4.) Best Interactive Toys_MG_7119 (1)

Hide ‘n Seek Burrows
Test your dog’s coordination skills with ZippyPaws interactive hide-and-seek puzzle Burrows! Each set comes with a “den” and three squeaky critters. Dog owners love interactive puzzle plush toys because they stimulate dogs’ mental and coordination skills.

Dogs love to bury their noses in the Zippy Burrow to dig out the critters. They’ll be begging you to put them back in the Burrow again and again for hours of fun! With over 20 varieties to choose from, ZippyPaws offers the widest selection of hide-and-seek Burrow toys on the market. New characters will be added to the line in 2016!

Burrows range from $12.99 – $25.99.

5.) Most Trendiest ToyEmojiz-original

Squeakie Emojiz
Now your dog can be tech-savvy as well! With our Squeakie Emojiz, your dogs can speak the universal emoji language. 😉 Our line of Squeakie Emojiz are fun and quirky squeaky plush toys for the modern dog. We can’t keep these characters in stock for long before selling out!

  • Pizza Slice
  • Speak-No-Evil Monkey
  • Angry Face Emoji
  • Pile ‘o Poo Emoji
  • Tongue Out Emoji
  • Heart Eyes Emoji

They make the paw-fect stocking stuffers, and once your dog gets tired of playing, they make the best little pillows! 😉 Squeakie Emojiz retails for $6.99 each.

ZippyPaws Wins Best Plush Dog Toy Award

The pet industry has been changing and evolving at a very fast pace. Companies are constantly revealing new product lines, and company mergers are commonplace.   Toy manufacturers are becoming more innovative than ever!  And according to American Pet Products Association, pet-related spending among U.S. consumers has more than doubled over the past 15 years.  It’s expected to surpass $60 billion in 2015!  Needless to say, if you want to be a top dog in this market, then your products and your company have to stand out.

Having just started in 2011, ZippyPaws was not yet a common name. But that quickly changed in a few short years. In 2014, ZippyPaws received the award for the best plush dog toy in the industry from Pet Business Magazine for our Jigglerz. This was a HUGE honor! Our one-of-a-kind Jiggler squeaker is what makes our Jigglerz stand out in a sea of dog toys. When shaken from side to side, Jigglerz create a jiggling, squeaking noise. No other manufacturer has been able to imitate our exclusively designed-squeaker, which we’ve done while maintaining high quality with low prices.

Year after year, pet product manufacturers have continued to raise the bar on what it takes to provide consumers the best of the best in dog products. Every year Pet Business compiles a list to honor some of the pet industry’s best manufacturers, and most ground-breaking products, with its Industry Recognition Awards.


We’re proud to say that for the second year in a row, ZippyPaws has been honored with the  BEST PLUSH DOG TOY of the year award!
