Four Ways to Celebrate National Dog Week with Fruitables

National Dog Week


September 19–­25 is National Dog Week, and Fruitables wants to help you share the love with your furry family members! Our dogs have helped us through some rough times over the past 18 months, keeping us sane and providing a much-needed distraction as our stress levels skyrocketed. To return the favor, Fruitables has fun and flavorful ways we can celebrate National Dog Week with our pooches.


1. Spend extra time with them
With cooler weather just around the corner, now is the time to get out of the house more! Spend some extra time with your furry companion and take them on a walk or outdoor adventure. For easy on-the-go snacking, bring along Fruitables pb n’ joy™ or Biggies™ treats. Fruitables pb n’ joy treats feature a unique split-and-share design ideal for the dog park or a walk. Made with real natural peanut butter and fruit, pb n’ joys also make a great training reward.  Biggies™ offer a big taste and an even bigger crunch. They are two times bigger than Fruitables original baked treats and are perfect for larger breeds.


2. Share your love of pumpkin

’Tis the season for all things pumpkin. From pumpkin spice lattes and candles to pumpkin patches and carving, pumpkin is everywhere. This fall season, there is also something pumpkin for everyone — including your four-legged friend. Share your love of pumpkin with your dog by treating him with Pumpkin & Blueberry baked treats and Pumpkin Spice Skinny Minis®. Also, don’t forget Fruitables pumpkin supplements formulated with real pumpkin to support digestive health. Pumpkin is a healthy and delicious supplement for dogs, providing fiber and essential vitamins, in addition to its great taste. In fact, pumpkin is the first ingredient in 18 Fruitables products because of its weight-loss and digestive-health properties.


3. Make your own Fruitables-inspired recipes
The delicious and bold Fruitables flavors your dog experiences are too good not to share, which is why we have created something for you, too. Food editor and fellow dog-owner, Stacie Billis, has developed a few recipes you can make for yourself that feature similar Fruitables flavors:


“Our unique flavor combinations aren’t just delicious for your dog, but for you and your family too,” adds Ronna Krahl, Vice President of Marketing – Companion Pet, Manna Pro Products maker of Fruitables pet treats. “You can experience the same bold Fruitables flavors at home in the kitchen with recipes inspired by the classic Fruitables treats.”


4. Celebrate the Fun Side of Healthy
According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, deciding what you feed your pet may be the most important thing you do for them. But healthy treats don’t have to be boring and bland. Each Fruitables recipe is packed with nutritious ingredients that are bursting with flavors like pumpkin, cranberry, sweet potato, mango, watermelon, apple, banana, blueberry and coconut. These ingredients are also nutritionally dense and can help your dog stay healthy.


Whatever you do, take time this National Dog Week to show your pooch how much you love them. Whether you are baking in the kitchen or exploring the outdoors, our furry friends enjoy being by our sides.
