October is Pet Wellness month and we are all about it. Us gals are 100% all about keeping our pups healthy 100% of time, or doing the best we can. When it comes to finding the best products for our pups it can be very overwhelming and sometimes you don’t even know where to start. I know when I had my first dog on my own I had no idea where to start and I honestly probably didn’t choose the best at first, but the more I learned and the better education I got, I switched everything over.
We have pulled some of our favorite wellness brands in every category in the dog space, everything from food to cbd and vets to gps collars.
I knew very little about CBD when it first came out in the pet world and I was always a little nervous to try it. Honestly, it was because I was just not educated on it. Kradle calming CBD for dogs works naturally with your pet’s biology to reduce their stress without diminishing their personality. My dogs are all nervous wrecks and I have tried everything under the sun and Kradle is one of the ONLY things that truly works for us. You can learn more about Kradle here.
Food might be the most important thing for our pets’ health and one of the things that most pet parents are uninformed on. A few years ago, a documentary came out called Petfooled, and it was extremely eye opening! We highly recommend everyone watch it and to seriously take a deep dive into what you are feeding your pup! We love My Ollie, which is a human-grade fresh dog food, and Nulo, which is a high-end kibble. Basically, if you can’t pronounce what is in the bag… don’t give it to your pup! You can learn more about OIlie here and get 50% off your first box, and learn all about Nulo here!
Having dogs is the greatest joy in the world and yet it is also the most expensive joy in the world! Holla if you feel me! We highly recommend having either pet insurance or a wellness plan for your dogs because things add up quickly. We love Pumpkin Care because they are very helpful and very easy to use! Learn more about Pumpkin here.
One of a dog mom’s worst fears is losing their best friend. That is way everyone should have a GPS collar. There are a few on the market but our favorite is Fi because  the battery life lasts anywhere from 1-3 months compared to others who last just a few days (and the last thing you want to worry about when your dog gets away is how much battery you have left).  We also love the activity tracking, which helps you hit your goals each day, week, and month by making sure that your pupper is getting their steps in and staying active. Use code GBF25 for $25 off. Learn all about Fi here.
Okay, this one might be the most fun on the list! Not only does the Wisdom Panel tell you what breeds make up your dog’s DNA, it also tells you any health issues that they have or that might come up with in the future. We have used both DNA tests on the market and the Wisdom Panel gave us so much more information on the breeds of our dogs as well as their health statuses. Learn more about the Wisdom Panel here.

This one is for our NYC doggos. Finding a vet can be hard and a headache. You wanna make sure that you are finding one that isn’t trying to sell you on something everytime you turn around, one that knows your dog without having to look at the chart everytime you walk in and one that is always there to help. That is why we LOVE Small Door Vet in NYC (hoping that they open nationwide). Small Door is a membership based vet, and it is 100% worth it in so many ways. They know us right when we walk the dogs inside their office, have a 24/7 chat with your vet on the app, are so helpful and just truly the best vets around! NYC pups, check out Small Door here!
Teefers are the cutest part of our dogs, so we want to make sure that we are keeping them white, clean and healthy! Bark just came out with their newest line which we are totally obsessed with. Bark Bright are individual treats with “toothpaste” that taste like chicken to keep your pup’s mouth 100%. You can learn more about Bark Bright here.
Treats are the way to our pups’ hearts, right? So why are we giving them crap?? The more and more we looked into treats the more and more we threw things away. We gals make an effort to only give our pups the best. We have been obsessed with Real Dog Box for several years now (literally since 2016)! If you’ve been living under a rock or are a new pet parent, Real Dog Box is a subscription-based treat company where every month they send you raw, real and healthy treats that are exactly what your dog needs to be snacking on. This is by FAR Abbie and Gunner’s favorite monthly box subscription! Learn more about the Real Dog Box here.
So this might be our dogs’ favorite item on the list; TOYS!!! When buying toys for your dog, you probably don’t think about what is in the toys, how they were made, or even if they are toxic. But the truth is that most dog toys are just that! Made with toxic materials that over time can truly harm your pup. We all love West Paw because all of their toys are not only durable but non-toxic as well. Learn more about West Paw here.
Supplements are something that not everyone thinks about when it comes to their dog, unless their dog has joint issues, is older, or has some other underlying issues. We think that pups should be taking supplements from day one to prevent anything from happening and we LOVE the newest brand to the game; Front Of The Pack. It is an all-in-one supplement made by vets and is perfect for any pup! You can read more about FOTP here.
