I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Blue Buffalo’s extensive product offering for cats and dogs available at PetSmart®, but {i love} my disorganized life only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers.

My husband and I have two dogs, Hank and Luci. They are both English Cream Retrievers and the sweetest dogs you’ll ever meet. Between owning our own business and my working part-time outside of the home, we don’t always get to spend the kind of time we’d like to with them.

That’s why I’ve come up with 5 ways to treat your pets like family- fun ways to show them you love them.

1. Have playtime with them

Pets love when we pay attention to them, not to mention, exercise is good for both of you. I love spending time outside with Luci.

2. Take them to a ballgame

Just like people, pets can get bored staying home all day. This past summer we took Hank to a baseball game. He was so excited to be there and met several nice people. He even cheered when our team made a home run.

3. Feed them only the best

You wouldn’t feed your kids junk food every day, would you? When choosing food for our dogs, we treat them like family. We feed them only the best – Blue Buffalo™ BLUE Life Protection Formula.

Why? It features real chicken, fish, or lamb. They use whole grains, garden veggies and fruits. Plus, it contains LifeSource Bits®, a precise blend of nutrients that have now been enhanced with Super 7 package of antioxidant-rich ingredients. Most importantly, BLUE Life Protection Formula contains real meat, no chicken (or poultry) by-product meals. It also has no corn, wheat or soy and nothing artificial.

Blue Buffalo has many healthy pet food options, like Blue Wilderness {cats, too!}, BLUE Life Protection Formula, canned food, rolls, treats, dental, and the Limited Edition Santa Snacks and Santa Stew. How do you know which one is right for your pet? Thankfully, each weekend, a Blue Pet Detective is on hand at PetSmart stores to help you figure that out. Not able to go on the weekend? No problem. Just head to the Blue Buffalo website, answer a few questions and the mystery is solved.

We decided on BLUE Life Protection Formula, because of it’s high protein and natural ingredients. I also picked up some wet food and two packs of treats, Blue Stix for every day, and Santa Snacks Kringle’s Cookies for their Christmas stocking. For more information on Blue Buffalo, visit PetsMart online.

4. Let them walk by themselves

It’s no secret that dogs love to go on walks. But, just like kids, they may not want you to hold them, well, their leash anyway.

5. Brush their hair

As a little girl, I can remember my mom brushing my hair. I loved the way it felt, and sometimes made me sleepy. Not only will brushing your pet’s hair help it to be healthy and shiny, it’s another way you can bond with them.
