PET CARRIER RECOMMENDATIONS: TOP 3
As some of you may or may not know, we're leaving with Herky & Milton on a trip to California shortly, and have been trying out some pet carriers. They will both be traveling in cabin, although they don't absolutely need to be in a carrier (post coming soon).
For today's post, we'd like to thank Sleepypod and Go Fresh Pet for sending some products for us to try out. We'll also be reviewing the Sherpa pet carrier and other goodies.
Herky weighs 19lbs and measures 13" to the shoulder
Milton weighs 12.8lbs and measures 12" to the shoulder
- Good for cats and dogs
- Most commonly found pet carrier in pet stores and online
- Good for pets up to 22lbs
- Measurements: 19x184.108.40.206
- Carrier weight: 4lbs
- Price: 79 CAD
- To purchase, click here.
This carrier works ok for Herky, but perfect for Milton. When travelling with dogs in a carrier, airlines usually recommend that the pet is able to stand and turn around in the carrier. Clearly, this carrier wouldn't allow it for either Herky nor Milton. Nevertheless, I still believe they would both be comfortable in this carrier. You can also use this carrier in the car, but need to make sure it's safely secured for it to not move.
The straps are patented seatbelt safety straps, and the handles are padded. The carrier allows both topside and side entry, making this practical and has mesh panels for breathability. There is also a no slip adjustable shoulder strap, which is ok but not the most comfortable. The frame is patented soft frame made of fibre glass.
- For pets up to 17lbs
- Measurements: 22 x 10.5 x 10.5
- Carrier weight: 4lbs
- Price: 215CAD
- To purchase, click here.
This carrier is definitely more luxe, sturdy and high quality. On the downside of all that, it does come with a steeper price tag. I'm absolutely obsessed with the color of this carrier, for obvious reasons. It can be used for the plane, the car or even bicycle.
What's great about Sleepypod, is that they do crash tests with their products at the child safety level, making this carrier one of the safest options for your pet.
- For pets up to 15lbs (Herky ok)
- Measurements: 20 x 13 x 12
- Carrier weight: 1.8lbs
- Carrier OR backpack
- Price: 69 CAD
- To purchase, click here.
The biggest advantage of this carrier, is that it can be used as a regular pet carrier or as a backpack. This allows better mobility and portability, especially when you're running around in an airport (or on a trek!).
This carrier is not as sturdy as the other ones, but is the most affordable option. It's also waterproof and has reflective bands for added safety. Be careful when using this as a backpack not completely closed because dogs can jump out!
PS: there's a giveaway for some Sleepypod products happening on our Youtube channel :) Check out the video below!
Unboxing August Pupbox
We're unboxing August Pupbox with Herky & Milton!
Pupbox is a monthly subscription box curated for your puppy, according to his or her age and weight. Although Milton is not a "puppy" anymore, we still receive these boxes. They don't contain training material anymore, but there's still so much fun. We love opening these boxes every month and discovering new products!
If you're interested in trying out Pupbox, we have a 15% off discount code. Use "MILTON" at checkout :)
Next up is our FAVORITE this month, and it's a Babble Ball from Pet Q Werks. You can watch the video below to see how Herky reacted to it, it's pretty hilarious. This toy makes 20 different animal sounds, is activated when touched and stops by itself. I'm honestly very impressed with this toy!
These treats from Pure Bites are a winner for the girls! They absolutely LOVE these, and so do I. They only contain 1 ingredient (beef liver), and are sourced in the USA. These beef liver treats are freeze dried to preserve aroma, texture and freshness.
Last but not least are some Turducky Bacon Strips from Emerald Pet. These smell like real bacon and the girls are NUTS for them (obviously). I only give little portions of this to the girls each time - not too much!
For some footage, watch the video below!

Cavalier Gear - Review of Cavlife
We're reviewing some products for the cavalier-obsessed human that we are :D All these items are from CavLife, which we've loved from the very beginning. Their page features the cutest cavaliers from Instagram, and the products are just pawesome.
Although they have a lot more offerings, here's what we have the chance to get our paws on. First off is my new favorite piece of jewelry.
This necklace is a cavalier cutout with a little heart in the middle, and available in 3 colors: silver, gold and rose gold. It claims that it will not tarnish, and has a 16" chain. How cute is it, seriously? I wear it almost everyday and can't get enough of it.
Next item is a Cav Mom tank top, and is SO SOFT! It's available in an amazing 13 colors and you will want to live in this tank top. I'm wearing size S :) I love that the silhouette on the tank match the one on the necklace!
I love these items, and hope you do too! Happy shopping ;)
Unboxing May Pupbox
Pupbox is a monthly subscription service for your pup, that tailors each month's box to your pup's age and size! They always have some training material - which is super helpful. You can save 15% any subscription package with code "MILTON" at checkout :)
We got this portable water bottle from Gulpy and I love the size! We actually have two more of these bottles, from different brands, and I must say that they are so useful. They are small enough to carry around, and even have a clip for you to snap it on your pants and not have to hold it. They come in various colors, and you can also find them on Amazon.
Next is a toy that is "deceptively light, incredibly strong" from Rhino Play. This toy is water proof and floats, which makes it perfect for dogs that love to play in the water this summer. We haven't played around much with this toy, but I love the color! Each purchase supports charities that promote the animal-human bond.
This dinosaur or dragon toy is from GoDog and is made with chew-guard technology for touch chewers. Honestly, no plush toy ever stands in the way of Milton. She chew off one of the dragon's wings in no time. It's hard to find toys that are plushy and actually resistant, in my opinion.
We hope you enjoyed unboxing with us!
SUMMER COLLECTION OF ROPE LEASHES IS HERE
These have been in the works for a few months now, and we even had the chance to go to Mexico to shoot all the promotional photos and product shots. We were in beautiful Puerto Vallarta, bordered by the Bahia de Banderas and lush palm-covered mountains.
Aruba, Bora Bora, Capri
Ibiza, La Isla Bonita, Oahu
To thank you, we'll be giving away one of these leashes. All you have to do is share this blog post, and comment directly below telling us which leash from this collection is your favorite. This giveaway is international and will be open until June 8th 11:59EST. We'll be picking a winner and announcing it on June 9th, directly under the winner's comment. Stay tuned, and good luck everyone <3
April Pupbox unboxing & review
Each month, we get a box filled with goodies for Milton. Pupbox follows your pup's growth and development, and sends a curated box each month targeted for your pup's age. If you're interested in signing up, we have a coupon code, "MILTON", that you can use on any subscription to save 15%!
It seems that each month we get some sort of treats, and it's good to see how many brands offer grain-free products. These are great for your pups if they have allergies or intolerances. Or simply if you prefer giving your pup grain free treats and food :)
It's also virtually indestructible therefore very durable. We've played with it for a few weeks now and I must say it is not destroyed so far. I can't say whether it's indestructible or not, though ;) We usually put some kibble in the toy and it keeps the girls distracted for a long time.
Thanks for reading, we love you!
Go Fresh Pet Dog Backpack - Review
We're actually big fans of Go Fresh Pet products in general. They're always good quality, functional and come in beautiful colors.
These backpacks come in three sizes: S, M and L. Both Herky and Milton are wearing size S in the photo above. I was actually surprised to see that there are only three sizes. Go Fresh Pet usually offer a HUGE range of sizes. BUT this backpack in size S can fit dogs from 15lbs to 35lbs. In all honesty though, it's too big for Milton (who is only 11lbs).
All you have to do is
1- Be subscribed to our Youtube channel
2- Comment below telling us why you should win :)
The giveaway is international, and will be open until Sunday June 4th 11:59EST. Herky will be drawing the winners on Monday June 5th :)
Good luck everypawdy!
BeOneBreed - Review
About the brand
They were very kind and sent over some items for the girls to review. A Cozy bed, a Twisted Twine rubber toy, and a Baby Giraffe fabric toy.
Cozy Bed Wood
I also love the fact that this bed is completely slip-proof. The entire bottom surface is made up of a non-slip material, making it sturdy and stable wherever you put it. I tried moving the bed with my feet, pretending to walk into it, and it didn't slide away. Bonus points for this.
Twisted Twine Rubber Toy
I was actually very eager to try this toy, because Milton loves ropes. However, I don't give her traditional rope toys to play with anymore, because she tears them up and swallows the thread.
Baby Giraffe Fabric Toy
Obviously, Milton shotgunned this toy and claimed it as hers.
This toy doesn't go to complete waste though. I was able to pull the teething ring out of the baby giraffe, and use it as a stand-alone toy!
My favorite item is obviously the Cozy Bed. It looks so beautiful, it's practical and the girls love to sleep in it. I love how Pinterest-y it looks, how easy it is to clean, and how it doesn't slip and slide when it's on the floor. As for their toys, you have to be careful to choose something that you know will withstand your pup's chewing abilities. My girls are heavy chewers, so that poor Baby Giraffe didn't stand a chance.
I hope you enjoyed this review - thanks for reading :)
We have finally found a harness that we love! You may not know this about us, but we are quite the pullers when it comes time to go on walks. There are too many smells and things to explore when outdoors, that's why :D
Herky used to have a nylon front-clip harness, which worked for a while. However, it wasn't as easy to put on and didn't seem as secure as we would've wished. You can find that harness here: https://www.amazon.ca/PetSafe-Easy-Harness-Medium-Black/dp/B005HNPCY4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1488757002&sr=8-1&keywords=no+pull+harness
We had seem and heard a lot of great things about the Julius K9 harness, but didn't pay much attention to it at first because of its look. It seemed to be so much more fitting for big dogs like our cousin, Tormey the King Shepherd. Boy oh boy does he look good in that harness.
But mommy still gave in and wanted to try it because we are so intense on the pulling. The result: she loves it! It's very sturdy, secure, and makes walking so much easier. More information here: http://julius-k9.com/
We strongly recommend this harness. You can also change the labels on the side of this harness, for example if you have a therapy dog ! Plus, the letters glow in the dark for added security for night time walks.
We hope this helps you out in your harness shopping!
