Pet Points

October 2017

Well, there is no denying it, fall is here, and hopefully everyone has been enjoying the milder temperatures. However with fall comes colder days as well as darker mornings and nights, and Pet Pointe has you covered!  We have some new Canada Pooch sweaters, coats, and raincoats in stock, as well as some hand knit sweaters, and for those of you who plan ahead, we have lots of boots in stock as well. In this issue you can also see some of the great products from Niteize that help to make sure your dog is seen in the dark.  And even though Thanksgiving is behind us, Halloween is just around the corner, so we've included a recipe for some Peanut Butter and Pumpkin dog biscuits. Make sure you stop by Pet Pointe on Halloween and pick up a free Trick or Treat goodie bag for your pooch(while supplies last). If you stop by with your dog in a costume, we'll take a picture and post it on our Instagram account!  And as always, if there is something you would like to see in a future newsletter, please send us an email

DOES MY DOG REALLY NEED A COAT OR SWEATER?
As the temperature starts to drop, you will start to see more dogs wearing coats or sweaters. Many people think this is just owners wanting to dress up their dogs, but in many cases it is a big help in keeping your dog warm and dry. Northern dog breeds like Huskies or Malamutes do perfectly fine in our Canadian winters without any protective clothing, but many other breeds will feel the cold and will benefit from some coverage. The most vulnerable dogs are smaller dogs, older dogs, and the thinner bodied dogs such as greyhounds. You may also find your dog is more willing to go outside and "do their business" if they are warmer. There is no harm in putting appropriate clothing on your dog, so if you are not sure if your dog needs it, chances are if you're cold, so is your dog, so go ahead and put something warm on your pooch!
Whether you are at the dog park or just out walking your dog, it is important that your dog is visible during early morning and late evening hours.  Niteize makes a number of LED products that are great for any dog.  The NiteHowl necklace (shown above)  is an extremely bright slip on collar that can be sized to fit any dog. Niteize also make a more traditional clip on collar, as well as collar lights that can be attached to your dog's collar or the end of their leash.  The collar light is even a good idea to put on your child's zipper, and a great accessory to use at Halloween.  And if you like to play ball with your dog after dark, you will love the motion activated GlowStreak ball



YAPPETIZERS are back or!  It's been awhile since we've had these all natural treats in stock, but we've got a good supply in now. Yappetizers are made in Canada, and contain no additives, preservatives, colouring or artificial flavouring.

Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup canned organic pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter*
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
*Use 100% natural peanut butter. Do NOT use peanut butter that contains artificial sweetener

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk together the flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add water as needed to help make the dough workable, but the dough should be dry and stiff. Roll the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick roll. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces or use a cookie cutter.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until hard, about 40 minutes.
