Summer Treats for the Whole Family-Pet Cookie Jar #ShareFunshine [ad]

Summer is a wonderful time for everyone in our family.  Our kids have their mama back full time and no school.  My husband takes vacation so we get to be together more and our puppies get to be out and about and not in their dog run for the majority of the day.

I really like to give our pets some extra special attention when I am home. We recently just redid our dog feeding station and I wanted to make a special Pet Cookie Jar to accent that and to remind myself to #ShareFunshine with my furbabies too!

I recycled some materials but basically all you need is a Jar (I used an old kitchen canister) & some pet themed and letter stickers. Then just stick them all over the jar and boom you are done. You can make this for any pet and it is a great way to upcycle. 

I filled our pet cookie jar with our favorite doggie treat Pedigree Dentistix®.  My dogs love both the Pedigree Dentistix® Original and the Pedigree Dentistix® Beef flavors.

Pedigree Dentistix® is our treat of choice because it promotes oral health to reduce plaque and tarter build up.  We need something like this because our dogs will not let us brush their teeth and wrestling a 70-80 lb dog is just not happening.

I also appreciate that my dogs do not scarf them down very fast.  Their texture is great and it takes my dogs a bit of time to really eat them.  They enjoy it too!

At around $15.00 for 40 treats (large dogs) they are priced great at Walmart as well!  This lasts us about a month and is great on the pocketbook. You can find them in the pet food isle and they are on rollback right now as well.  You should grab some and #ShareFunshine too!

Now summer is not just about our dogs enjoying their treats, with so many family and friend gatherings this summer I needed to pull out some fantastic recipes to #ShareFunshine with everyone. While I was at Walmart I grabbed a few our our favorite treats with some delicious recipes in mind to share with my family this week as we prep for my little sisters wedding.

We are up in the mountains right now and have been enjoying these snacks so much.  My sister gets married tomorrow and we have been working tirelessly for the last 4 days to ready the mountain retreat for an obscene amount of amazing guests.  Our pups have been enjoying their treats and we have too.  Summer has been epic so far and with only 3 weeks left I cannot wait to see what else it brings.

So tell me, how do you #ShareFunshine this summer?
