Advent Calendar for Dog Lovers Day 18: Freshpet Giveaway

Kol's Notes Advent Calendar for Dog Lovers
Welcome to the Advent Calendar for Dog Lovers hosted by Kol’s Notes, Heart Like a Dog, My GBGV Life, My Brown Newfies & Bringing Up Bella.

Every day between now and December 24th, we’ll be giving away great prizes – plus every time you enter to win a daily prize, you’ll be entered to win our fabulous Grand Prize Package worth more than $800 featuring gifts from each of our 24 fantastic sponsors!


Today’s sponsor is Freshpet!

It’s no secret that Casa de Kolchak dogs are Freshpet fans. Their Dog Joy Turkey Bacon treats drive Kolchak wild. They once convinced me to undertake the crazy experiment of living without my fridge for a whole week (spoiler alert: It was awful and I don’t recommend it). Their Freshpet Vital food rolls are a staple here. We love to chop them into bits and use them for training bait. They even make a bake-at-home dog cookie, so that you can give your dogs fresh baked treats, even if you’re not a crazy dog baker like I am.

When I have Freshpet in my hand, I have my dogs undivided attention.

They love it because it tastes good, but let’s face it, I am a million times pickier than they are. I have some pretty high standards for what they’re allowed to eat. I like Freshpet because it’s gently cooked, made in the US and/or Canada (with glowing hearts, yo!) and I can feel good that I’m giving my boys locally made, locally sourced products. I like that Freshpet is made with all natural ingredients and no preservatives (which is why you can only find it in the Freshpet fridge). I eat fresh food, why wouldn’t I want to give my dogs the same thing?

My dogs deserve it and so do yours.

The Freshpet Elves have been hard at work making sure that this Christmas will be extra special for two lucky pups this year!

  • dh_jax

    I have eight dogs, three of which are rescues. I’m very particular about what they get to eat for food and treats. Due to all the recalls I will not use anything made in China or sourced from china. I love that this is “fresh” and made here too. I have bought the fresh pet rolls of food many times. Luckily my local store carries it! I don’t use it as food but rather for training or treat. I cut up the big roll into small slices and little chunks and package small amounts in baggies to use daily. My dogs love this stuff so I know they would love to try the treats as we have only tried the rolls so far. I love the little cooler, that would be great for taking their favorite treat with us. Thanks for the chance to win!
