Last week, I headed down to our local Walmart to do a little grocery shopping and stock up on dog treats.
I love my dogs to death, which all of my followers know…yeah, sorry about the constant barrage of pics of my babies! And everyone know that my dogs are
incredibly, horribly, kind of spoiled. I can’t help it! They’re so cute!
How could I not spoil my sweet little puppy Toby with treats? Especially since Milk-Bone® dog biscuits have vitamins, minerals and help keep away dog breath? It’s a win-win situation.
I was honestly pretty amazed at the selection of dog treats at Walmart. I make sure to stock up when I go to Walmart, because their isle for dog treats, grooming stuff and toys is three times the size of my local grocery store!
I enjoy giving my dogs Milk-Bone® dog snacks, and Walmart definitely had a wide variety of flavors and sizes! Because I have one very large breed dog – Foxy, my Alaskan Malamute – and two small breed dogs – Bailey and Toby, my Shetland Sheepdogs – I buy a variety of dog treats because what is appropriate for one is not always appropriate for the other.
I especially like Milk-Bone® products for my Shelties because their breed is prone to teeth and gum issues, and I have been advised against giving them wet food and many soft dog treats. Milk-Bones® are nice and solid and I don’t have to worry about them promoting tooth decay in my babies! They still get soft, chewy treats every once in a while, but mainly I reserve those for Foxy.
It’s a good thing that Bailey likes Milk-Bone® dog snacks so much! When I picked up my Milk-Bone® dog snacks, I saw that my package had a $2.00 off coupon for Pup-Peroni and Milo’s Kitchen dog treats.
Now, I have been buying Pup-Peroni dog treats for my dogs for ages – especially for Foxy, because she loves them!! – but I had never tried Milo’s Kitchen before. So I had to take advantage of the $2.00 off coupon and pick them up!
I sort of went a little crazy buying treats, all of the prices were so low anyway, and then to have the $2.00 off coupon, it made sense to stock up! There are going to be great money-saving coupons in the Sunday paper the week of December 11th, so keep an eye out for those!
I decided that with all of these dog treats and the cute toys they had in the dog isle at Walmart, I was going to make a gift basket for someone’s new puppy because I know that my dogs certainly never go without snacks or toys!
There are always a ton of dogs and cats waiting to be adopted at our local Animal Services and Humane Society branches, and I think it would be a wonderful way to spread the Christmas spirit by dropping off a basket filled with goodies for a puppy! Once that decision was made, I began choosing little toys to add to my cart!
There were so many affordable options for toys! Walmart had everything from 0.94¢ packs of 3 tennis balls to chew toys for $2.57 to stuffed pull toys for $3.47!
I was able to grab a ton of dog snacks, including the Milk-Bone®, Milo’s Kitchen, and Pup-Peroni, as well as a few toys, all for under $25!
I just need to find a cute canine-themed basket to use for when I deliver my puppy prep kit to my local Humane Society! Of course, I will probably go back to Walmart to do a little more shopping for my puppy gift basket – each additional toy or treat the puppy has to chew on is one less shoe that will be chewed up! ha ha
I created a shopping story using Google+ with lots of photos about the fantastic products for dogs at Walmart, you should check it out!
