Announcing the #PAW5EnrichedLifeChallenge for Your Dog!

#PAW5EnrichedLifeChallenge

Hi Guys and Happy Monday!

For those of you who don’t know my little sister has finally arrived! River is about 9 months old and believed to be a Black Mouth Cur Mix. If you would like to read more of River’s story here is the LINK.

Today, I’m exciting to talk about a rewarding challenge that’s taking place this week. Dedicated to providing enrichment for dogs through thoughtful product design and education, PAW5 is launching their #PAW5EnrichedLifeChallenge. This one-of-a-kind program challenges pet parents to provide five days of ideal enrichment for their dogs to further engage their pups mind and body in healthy and rewarding activities that will keep them mentally sharp and physically fit. When I first heard about this Challenge it was perfect timing. With the arrival of River last week, keeping a 9 month old busy is a challenge.

So, lets just right in….. View Post

PL360 Arthogen Plus Advanced Hip & Joint Formula

I was reading the other day and found out that some places consider a 7 year old dog a senior. I was shocked, I mean, I still feel like a spunky pup. However, I am noticing some aches and pains with the resent weather change. Even my humans asked if I’m okay because I have been moaning some when I lay down.


When PL360 contacted us, asking if I would like to review their Hip & Joint supplements, I subconsciously jumped all over the opportunity.  

PL360 makes two different Hip & Joint Support. Here is the different between the two:


Since I fall under the “senior” and “large breed” category, I’m reviewing the Advanced Hip & Joint Support supplement

Arthogen Plus Advanced Hip & Joint Formula for dogs is specially formulated with glucosamine and chondroitin, plus MSM and HA to support healthy hips and joints. These tablets are beef and cheese flavored and are scored chewable to help ensure easy and accurate dosage. 

According to the bottle, for the first month you start off taking 2 pills in the morning and 1 pill in the evening. Now that it has been over a month, I just take 2 pills in the morning. Even though these tablets are flavored, I’m not good at taking pills. So, my humans crush them and add them to my food, which I take with no problems.

Since being on this supplement, for just over a month, both my humans and I have noticed a difference already. The main difference we all notice, I’m not moaning anymore when I lay down.

I would recommend this product to any K9 out there who is needing a supplement or who wants to be proactive with their aging dog. 

This supplement comes in three different size bottles:

  • 90 Chewable Tablets 
    • Regular Price: $39.87
    • Currently on Sale: $23.99
  • 180 Chewable Tablets
    • Regular Price: $73.99
    • Currently on Sale: $36.99
  • 360 Chewable Tablets
    • Regular Price: $92.34
    • Currently on Sale: $62.99
