Win a Care Package for Your Pet

Congratulations to JJ and Adrienne for winning their respective cat and dog each a fantastic care package! And thanks to all of you who submitted a response; you gave us lots of ideas for our own pampered pooches and crafty kitties. Does your dog or cat have a favorite treat? We want to know what it is! Carrots, apples, liverwurst…whatever it is, we want to hear about it. We’re giving away two care packages of healthy treats — one to a randomly selected dog owner and the other to a randomly selected cat owner — just enter your pet’s favorite healthy treat as a comment below by July 21st! What’s that…your pet’s favorites aren’t healthy? Well, we won’t disqualify you. Your pet may need the care package more than others! Tell us what treats they eat now, healthy or not. A little over a year ago, I got a puppy. The week before I picked him up, I researched training treats like crazy. I wanted to make sure he started his life off healthy (and obediently) with treats that were free of byproducts and artificial stuff. Once I got him home, I discovered that not only did he LOVE the treats I’d settled on, but he also LOVED frozen broccoli florets. Nothing beats a refreshing frozen broccoli floret on a hot summer day! What’s your pet’s favorite healthy treat? Enter your comment below by July 21 and you just might win a care package for your pet. Note: The winning pet care packages will be created with an array of these products.

Snowball, my cat, loves eating fresh cooked chicken breast, and can't resist fresh cooked fish, like salmon or tuna.

My dog Ernie loves scrambled eggs. I give him my kid's leftovers after breakfast and he thinks he has earned the "best dog award" for the year!!!

One of my dogs goes crazy for peanut butter. he comes running any time he heard the jar. My other dog goes crazy for carrots which are healthy, and Coffee(!). You can't drink coffee when he is around because he will do anything to try to drink some.

My cats love the chicken liver I buy at Whole Foods. They go crazy when I cook it up for them.

I have two pugs. One (the fat guy) eats anything. He loves lettuce and tomatoes. The other (skinny guy) is very pickie, but he really loves dried yams. Of course the fat guy loves dried yams too.

My Champ blood line rottweilers... Achilles (Dad) and Athena (Daughter)favorite healthy treat may not sound like the treats others have posted but are heather than most post. Behold ICE CUBES. From pups till now when the ice machine on the frig goes off I have two lovers that will run to the frig, lay down, and put faces between paws and on the ground waiting for their favorite treats ice cubes. They just love it! They also like of course the raw meets and the occasional pear that falls of my tree.

My dog's favorite treat was frozen green beans. Yep. After a long walk, he'd wait for his frozen treat after our time out getting healthy and warm. Cooling off with tasty and healthy frozen treats are the best! I hope my new pup I'm adopting will also love them. :)

ICE!! I have a Pomeranian and he loves ice cubes! As soon as he hears the sound of the ice tray cracking or ice clanking in a glass he comes racing in from wherever he is, full speed, and will stare you down until you share your ice with him. It's great, healthy, refreshing, FREE and there's an endless supply!!!

My 2 english cocker spaniels wag their tails with excitement uncontrolably when they hear the bag open for their treats I buy at Whole Foods - Wellness Wellbites - Lamb & Salmon flavor! They are good boys :)

My Gilbert is an old English bulldog. He absolutely loves fresh, frozen or jarred salmon. There is nothing better than pouring the left over salmon oil on his food. Full of omega 3's.

Our two dogs love frozen beef soup bones from our local grass-fed farm, Skyline Meats. They don't get them all the time, but they definitely love them!

My two huge lap dogs (85/120 lbs) love anything from my hands, but really, REALLY love when I bring them large marrow bones from the butcher.

My cat's favorite thing in the world is cantaloupe. I kid you not. She will turn down everything else to stick her head in half a cantaloupe melon and won't resurface for 20 minutes.

Hi. Our black pug CWS is a sweet old boy at 11 years. He's also almost 40 lbs! We try to give him healthy treats and plenty of walks. That's a big challenge when its 100 degrees out! He likes the White Cheddar Annie's Mac & Cheese!

My two little boys, Robbie G(pound puppy)Jasper (mini doxie) love tomatoes! All I need to do is put the knife to the cutting board and they come running!!Another of Jasper's favorites is trying to get a grip on a mango seed while I am trying to hold on to it which is quite the slippery challenge with me fighting off the temptation to just let him run away with it!!!I am not quite sure yet if thats a good idea or not...

My cat likes cheese. She considers anything people are eating to be the ultimate treat but luckily she also likes Greenies because table scraps are not the healthiest treats!

My dog just loves Fage Greek Stle yogurt. He gets so happy; he looks like he is smiling when I get the container out of the refrigerator.

My boston terrier Tonka LOVES homemade doggie ice cream, which I make with a banana, plain yogurt, peanut butter and a little bit of honey. YUM!

While the four hounds (Doxies) love meat they go crazy happy for watermelon and sweet potato, and it's even better when I throw banana in the mix. :)

I have two dogs that I adopted... They like EVERYTHING! I try to give them organic and gluten free treats because everyone in my house seems to have this problem - but my dog Chaps will eat dirt in the yard! Seriously, he's outside now and quiet, so that can only mean one thing.... I need to go check! :)
