Play - Bathe - Sleep - Repeat

Our Java is definitely still a pup she's so full of energy. She will play every chance she gets...and would probably eat every chance she gets too if we let her. So to bring the two together we introduced her to some fun toys that keep her active and reward her for her hard work at the same time. Using her new BUSTER DogMaze from Kruuse we are actually able to slow down her eating. When we used a standard bowl she would gobble it up in a matter of seconds. Now she actually has to work at getting her food using her tongue and nose to push it out of the maze.

And in between meals we use the BUSTER Soft Cube. It looks like an over-sized dice cube with a hole in one side. Inside there's a maze of sorts that keeps the treats from quickly falling back out. So if Java wants her treat she has to push, tumble, and sometimes pick up and drop the cube until the treats follow the right path and back out of the cube opening.

Have you ever tried to give a dog a bath? Let me tell you it can be Okay maybe not fun as in good fun, but fun as in entertaining fun. Java fortunately isn't completely against bath's but she does easily get dry skin so we have to be careful how many we give her. So to help with that we use some quick bath wipes when we need to do a little in between cleaning. We really like using products from the earthbath and QuickBath lines because they are safe to use daily.

And of course like every good human...I mean uh dog once you've played, eaten, and had a bath you like to take a nap. And when you're queen of the house like our beloved Java you get to take your naps on a super cushy sofa bed like this one from BUSTER. I have to say this is probably where you'll find Java if you stop by our house. If she's not playing she's taking one of her multiple daily naps in her comfy bed.

Do you have a pup (or other animal) that's treated like royalty in your house? You know what I'm talking about the one that gets a special bed, and special treats. :-)


  1. I inherited my Dad's little rescue Joey who is a maltese/poodle mix. He sleeps on the sofa during the day and on my bed at night along with his five cats. He'd probably love a super cushy sofa bed from Buster if he could keep his friends from hogging it. The dog food maze & treat maze are nice ideas for younger dogs. Thank you for the info on the quick dog bath supplies. I wish I had known about them sooner lol

  2. We have two kitties with very different but large personalities. My boyfriend and I used to give them baths but after getting scratched up I gave up. He's always on me to bathe them so once it gets warmer this year we'll go thru it to get them nice and clean/shiny

  3. What a lot of nice products for dogs. I love the wipes for in between baths. I would love getting those for our dogs.

  4. I have to be honest. I purchased a food maze for my dog that ate incredibly fast to slow him down. I used it once and got rid of it. The dog-mom guilt of watching him get aggravated and nervous was too much. He had me wrapped around his little paw though :)

  5. Oh Quick Bath Wipes would be so wonderful for us! We have two lab mixes that we adopted, and in the spring...oh our yard gets so muddy! I would love to be able to use these to clean then up a bit!

  6. Thank you for sharing. I have to let my son know about these products. They just got a dog.

  7. Thanks for sharing i will pass this to my friend who ha dog

  8. LOL ' omg! that dog seem like he was in his own world, having so much
    fun with that cube.
