SNIFF & BARKENS AND HARTZ UNLEASH A HOLIDAY BUCKET FULL OF TOYS THAT HELPS SAVES DOGS LIVES!
Imagine a holiday gift that will delight dogs ... and their two legged parents!
What you've imagined is Barkens Bucket, a Bucket full of goodies named for one of the signature dogs in possibly the fastest growing dog-focused social media platform in the last two years: Sniff & Barkens.
"Our passion for pets is at the forefront of everything we do and we are excited to partner with Sniff & Barkens on this Holiday Bucket, which will benefit the Pilots 'n Paws Rescue that helps animals in need," said Stacy R. Kisla, Senior Director of Marketing for The HARTZ Mountain Corporation.
10% of the proceeds from each Bucket helps save innocent displaced animals!
Sniff & Barkens, along with presenting sponsor Hartz, created this Bucket full of toys as a unique holiday gift that also helps save dogs' lives. This $50+ value is being offered to Sniff & Barkens' millions of followers for $34.99, with a portion of the proceeds going to Pilots N Paws, a nonprofit organization that provides life-saving transports and rescue missions for dogs.
"Our goal is to bring joy to furry family members while supporting an organization that helps save the lives of other dogs," said Joe Pappalardo, founder of Sniff & Barkens. "We're delighted Hartz came on board as our presenting sponsor, helping us raise funds for Pilots N Paws, which provides invaluable services, especially in times of crisis like the recent hurricanes that devastated communities and displaced not only thousands people, but also thousands of dogs."
The Barkens Bucket will be available for order at https://shop.SniffandBarkens.com/ until Nov 28th.
Do you live in a blended family - Kids, Dogs and Cats? Keep them all happy and having fun this summer with Hartz! There are lots of toys from Hartz for your kids to play with your fur-babies to keep them all occupied!
We cat lovers know that our kitties like to play in different ways. “There are four primary play patterns,” says Dr. Georgette Wilson, DVM, the Director of Scientific and Regulatory Affairs and resident veterinarian at Hartz Mountain Corp. “They may stay with one pattern or alternate among different types of play. The primary play patterns for cats are Swat, Hunt, Interact and Activity”.
Katherina Rivera, Senior Brand Manager, Hartz Mountain Corp. has chosen some great Hartz toys to fit every pattern…
WHAT PLAY PATTERN DOES YOUR CAT PREFER?
- Cats that love to swat prefer playing with small toys that move or roll easily. The Roll About Mouse™ has a sisal ball and a plush head, which cats want to chase after.
- Cats that like to hunt enjoy toys that resemble other animals. Among the Hartz, favorites are the Mini Mice™ and Chirping Bird™
- Cats that like interacting with their owners enjoy playing with wands. Toys that fit the bill include Twirl and Whirl® and Gone Fishin’®
- Activity craving cats like to preoccupy themselves with activity centers, hiding places and toys with scratchers
My cat Carol, loves anything that moves, including my fingers when I text, and that is painful! I had to re-direct Carol's playful energy with some toys from Hartz, and so far, she is keeping busy swatting at her Twirl and Whirl, as well as her Gone Fishin toys. I attached some fishing line to the Mini Mice toys, and my son, Braxton loves to entertain her by pulling it around the house for her to chase. Carol has never been outside to hunt, but I am certain she would be good at it!
Look at this crazy kitty!
Dogs like to play in different ways, and we as pet parents are attuned to their needs. “There are four primary play patterns,” says Dr. Georgette Wilson, DVM, the Director of Scientific and Regulatory Affairs and resident veterinarian at Hartz Mountain Corp. “Some dogs may have one favorite way of playing, others alternate among different types of play. The main play patterns are Toss & Retrieve, Tug, Comfort & Security, and Chew.”
WHAT PLAY PATTERN DOES YOUR DOG PREFER?
- Dogs that like to engage in Toss And Retrieve play enjoy the Hartz Dura Play® Ball and the Hartz Tuff Stuff® Flyer™
- Dogs craving Comfort and Security turn to plush toys such as the Quackers®
- Those that love to Chew the night away opt for the Hartz Chew ‘n Clean® Tuff Bone® (comes in different sizes)
My dog, Banner is a fetch kind of guy. His favorite toys are the Hartz Dura Play Ball, and he loves to carry around his Nose Divers Duck. He doesn't use it for tug of war, he simply wants you to throw it so he can fetch it. Banner is almost 14 years old, and still plays as if he is a puppy. We love Banner! We are taking him camping this weekend so he can swim in the lake.
Here is Banner, enjoying his Nose Divers Duck! He loves it!

My Experience: I received a BarkBox to review for the month of May. My dog Banner was truly thrilled with the contents! Our BarkBox included a Planet Dog toy, a package of meaty dog treats from Loving Pets, a big tasty bone from Barkworthies, and a yummy package of doggie cookies from Bocce's Bakery!

Planet Dog Toy
Orbee-Tuff toys from Planet Dog are USA-made, non-toxic, recyclable, and wonderfully minty (but can be rinsed clean after a play session!) Best of all, Planet Dog donates a portion of each purchase to canine service programs throughout the country.
Our Experience: Banner loves playing fetch with this minty, squishy, bouncy funny looking eggplant toy! It is a lot of fun.
Loving Pets Grill-icious Dog Treats
Grill-icious is 100% All Natural and Made in the USA Dog Treat. Grill-icious is made by taking 100% All Natural Chicken, Beef, or Turkey and mixing it with some anti-oxidant sweet potato that are than formed into patties. These Patties can be either bite size or normal size and they are placed on open grilling racks to help reduce fat and give them a delicious, fresh-grilled flavor. These treats are wheat free, gluten free, and do not contain any additives or preservatives.
Our Experience: Banner loves them, of course! He gobbled them right down, and even renewed some of his old doggy tricks that he learned as a pup just to wrap his jowls around these delightful treats!
Barkworthies Bully Sticks Dog Treats
Bully Sticks are 100% digestible, all natural, long lasting dog chews that are great for chewing, gnawing and inducing fits of puppy happiness.
Our Experience: Banner loved chewing on his Bully Stick! He took it into his favorite spot under the shade of our walnut tree, and blissfully chewed away until it was all gone.
