  3. Chuck & Don's 2018 Happiest Pet

    The 2018 Happiest Pet is Lady Lake! "Lady Lake came from the town of Lady Lake, Florida. She was rescued by my father and, when he passed away in 2012, she became my great inheritance. "In MN, she lived with her tripod brother Mason, a Papillon/Sheltie mix who she would enthusiastically wrestle with daily. And she loved her tripod German Shepherd sister KC (although there was a little sibling rivalry at first). "Lady loved going for walks, lounging in the sun, playing with toys, wrestling with Mason, eating peanut butter Buddy Biscuits and sitting on my lap every morning and night. She was my running partner (I use the term loosely) at the Fast and Furry 5K9 for several years which she loved so much. It was made even happier when she celebrated with a Glam Doll donut. "Lady was a gossip girl and always wanted to know what was going on around her. She loved everyone, and had a way of making people with special needs feel like royalty when she had the chance to meet them. She would always

  8. Keeping Pets Cool

    [caption id="attachment_24561" align="alignright" width="200"]dog Jake, a Chuck & Don's family member[/caption] Beyond being comfortable, it's important to keep your pets cool in hot weather. Like humans, pets can overheat, sunburn and dehydrate.

    Exercise During Cool Hours

    Go for walks in the early morning or late evening to avoid the hottest weather. Be aware of the temperature of concrete or roads, as these surfaces can heat up quickly and retain heat for long periods. To test if a surface is too hot for your pet, place the back of your hand on the surface for five seconds. If you can't keep your hand there for five seconds, the ground is too hot for your pet.

    Comfortable and Relaxed

  9. CBD and Your Pets

    Chuck & Don's is devoted to selling the highest-quality products so pet parents can provide the best care to their pets. With strong demand for CBD products in the Colorado market, we're excited to offer them to our Minnesota customers. Our lines of CBD supplements might aid in keeping pets calm, optimally healthy and pain-free. We're sharing how CBD can add joy to your pet's life.

    What is CBD?

    Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural, non-nutritional remedy for pain management, anxiety, arthritis, epilepsy, inflammation, cancer symptoms, gastro-intestinal tract issues, nausea and other kinds of physical or emotional pain. It's also used as a neuroprotectant to protect the brain's neuron structure and function. Research shows that full spectrum CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and significantly boosts the immune system. Some research suggests that, without full spectrum CBD being consumed on a regular basis, mammals cannot reach optimal levels of health.

    Have you tried our new Boo Boo's Best treats? Combining health and taste, they're an ideal option for training treats or as food toppers.

    Exotic Proteins

    Single Ingredient

    For picky eaters or those with allergies, Boo Boo's Best single protein treats make it easy to feed your pet a variety of delicious treats. You won't have to worry about additional, unknown ingredients triggering a reaction. Wild, grass-fed and family-farmed meats are blended with fruits, vegetables and coconut oils.
