Are you looking for a special bandana for your pup? Maybe something that sticks out from all of other bandanas out there…

Hodge House Bandanas offer REVERSIBLE bandanas for all sizes! The advantage of owning a reversible bandana is, that you’re basically getting two bandanas in one!

What I Love:

πŸ’œ Thick, high quality material

πŸ’œ You can customize your order

πŸ’œ Reversible patterns

πŸ’œ Tie on makes the bandana more secure than a traditional button on

πŸ’œ Professional packaging

πŸ’œ They offer ADORABLE bow ties

πŸ’œ Fast shipping

These bandanas are made from super strong material! My dogs pulled on these while playing, and not a single tear!

I was also super impressed by the unique patterns and fonts they had to offer.

One thing that really stood out to me was the speedy shipping! I received my package only a couple days after I ordered. It actually came ahead of time.

1.

Your bed is their bed.

These tough dogs love to be close to their loved ones. Their sensitive nature makes them great cuddlers!

2.

Your used to the drooling by now.

Any time there is a snack around, you’re already prepared for the waterfall. This is part of their begging tactics.

3.

Your knight in shining armor.

The Cane Corso is an extremely protective breed. They will be right by your side to the very end!

4.

They will out run you in seconds.

These pups are immensely quick and agile. They have been known to out run even the fastest of runners!

5.

No, not a Pitbull.

While we love Pitbulls, it can get kind of annoying having to explain our pup isn’t one. Although they are both in the mastiff group, Cane Corso’s tend to be bigger.

6.

We avoid taking them near small animals.

Distracted is an understatement when it comes to the Cane Corso’s need to chase small animals. Their prey drive is very high and any small squirrel or bird will send them bolting!

7.

They are always themselves.

Cane Corso owners know just how fun-loving this breed is. They never fail to put a smile on your face!

8.

We have to be convincing if they aren’t interested in doing something.

Persuasion is a trick every Cano Corso owner has mastered. But don’t worry, it gets easier I promise.

9.

Stuck like glue.

A Cane Corso’s number 1 priority in life is to spend time with family. They love the comfort and serenity of being around those they love.

10.

A dog with an ego.

These dogs are beautiful and they know it. They have a regal appearance that screams confidence.

Let’s Talk Quality…

Their bandanas are made from premium, high quality fabrics and I could tell!

When I received my bandanas, I noticed they were soft and thicker than others I had purchased in the past from other companies.

I didn’t feel worried about them ripping apart or being easily destroyed by my dogs. (Of course with any fabric if your pup chews it for long enough, they will destroy it.)

I also liked how the bandana was a traditional tie around, instead of a snap-on. I find the snap-on bandanas break a lot easier. They also leave no extra room to tie around if the snap is broken.

The SAFE Alternative to Raw Bones.

Sometimes antlers and other raw bones can be harmful to your dogs teeth. Certain breeds have a stronger bite force and unknowingly grind down their teeth on these raw bones.

Alternative bones that aren’t as hard are a great option and will keep your pups teeth intact. Lumabone specializes in these types of toys and even have dental chews!

Lumabone offers 3 different styles of bones so every dog wins!

The Stick

This is the closest bone resembling chew they offer at the moment. It is made from real maple wood! If your pup loves finding sticks in the backyard, they’ll love this too! The best part, it’s all made in the USA.

The Wishbone

This durable chew is personally my dogs favorite. It comes bacon flavored which might be the best part! Lumabone strategically made the wishbone chew so that dogs could have a strong grip on the bone. This means hours of uninterrupted chew time!

The Dental Chew

Specifically made to promote healthy and strong teeth. This bone has two holes at each end and ridges on each side to help your pooch grip their new favorite toy. Don’t worry though! These chews have been modified, the holes will not trap your dogs canine teeth. This has been an ongoing problem with many different brands. Luckily, Lumabone is one step ahead of the problem!

Photo by: @genesis.gsd

Another great thing about these bones is that they don’t break apart into small pieces. Usually with other bones you run the risk of your dog choking on a piece of broken off bone. While it is never recommended to let your pup chew on a bone without supervision, Lumabone understands accidents happen. These bones are made 100% from nylon. (The stick has maple wood as well)

Why I Love Catahoula Leopard Dogs.

Photo by: @harperleethecur

1.

The Catahoula Leopard Dog is an American dog breed. Originating from the swamps of Louisiana, they get their name from the Catahoula Lake. This breed is used for hunting game and are often called “hog dogs.”

2.

They have a wide range of coat colors and lengths. Usually, they have a short to medium fur length. The Catahoula Leopard Dog is also commonly known for their “spotted” coat. Some coat colors include:

  • Black
  • Brindle
  • Red Merle
  • Black Merle
  • Yellow
  • Red

3.

This breed is incredibly intelligent. They will need a lot of mental and physical stimulation to release their energy. They also love to work and would benefit from having a job to do! These dogs can handle vigorous exercise and will love you for it.

4.

They have some of the prettiest eyes I’ve ever seen! The Catahoula Leopord Dog is known for having striking eyes, and multi colored eyes. Their eyes can range from solid light blue to having one brown and one blue eye! This is called Heterochromia. The most popular eye color for them is a very light blue, almost looking white or grey.

5.

These pups are light shedders. Compared to your German Shepherd or Poodle, they are a breeze! Since Catahoulas have a short coat, shedding isn’t all that bad. Brushing will also keep this as bay.

6.

The Catahoula Leopard Dog is a great watch dog! Not many people know this, because they are usually talked about for their hunting abilities. They are very wary of strangers and have a territorial instinct.

7.

They are a healthy breed. Every dog will have it’s problems, but generally, Catahoulas are not prone to many diseases or life threatening conditions. With a proper diet and exercise, you can expect your pal to live for 10 to 14 years.

8.

The perfect size. If you don’t have the patience for a big dog, and aren’t really fond of small ones either; the Catahoula might be just right for you! They are considered a medium size dog. They can weigh anywhere from 30 to 60 pounds. The males are usually a little bigger than the females.

Rescuing a “mutt” or “potcake” is one of the most rewarding things you can do. These dogs are counting on you to save them from the traumatic reality which is their life.

What I Love About Dachshunds.

Your typical wiener dog. Full of life and full of joy! These pups are a super common family pet. They even made it on the American Kennel Club’s top 10.

Photo by: @littlecheese12

1.Courageous

Despite their small size, these hot dogs are known to go after larger animals if they feel threatened. Some might say they don’t know their actual size.

2. Quirky

Due to their unique body shape and short legs, some tasks are more difficult for them. If you’ve ever seen a Dachshund jump, you know what I’m talking about. You can’t deny though, it’s so darn C U T E!

3. Adventurous

These dogs love exploring! They are the perfect companions to tag along on a camping trip or hike. Their enthusiasm to scout the outdoors is unmatched. It’s in their DNA to be hunters. These dogs were originally bred to find smaller prey and drive them away.

4. Adorable

By far one of the most jaw dropping breeds! These pups can really attract a crowd. Their short stubby legs, and long torso are one of a kind features. When you see one, you know exactly what breed it is.

“I love that dachshunds have a lot of personality packed into a small frame! They are incredible companion dogs that bond quickly with their humans.”

@lunaminidox

5. Family Favorite

An awesome family pet is an understatement! Every dachshund I’ve known has been the apple of their owner’s eye. They make great family additions and are fantastic with small children. They aren’t overbearing and won’t knock your little one over.

6. Charming

One of my favorite things about these dogs is how sweet they are. No matter what their person is up to, they are right there. Their favorite thing to do is cuddle, so expect a lot of it!

Photo by: @winniethe.wiener

7. Protective

Don’t let their small frame fool you! They can intimidate. Dachshunds have been known to be protective over their families, especially pregnant women and small children. Their fierce loyalty never backs down.

8. Minimal Shedding

For the most part, these dogs aren’t big on shedding. Their short coat is easy to maintain and doesn’t require much brushing. For long haired Dachshunds expect to see a little more hair, but not by much! Their undercoat grows slowly.

“I love how loyal dachshunds are! Also, they are big on cuddling!

@cooperandcarterdach

9. Long Life Span

Dachshunds are one of the longest living dogs! Their average life expectancy is anywhere from 13 to 15 years. This beats out many other breeds, especially large dog breeds. So if you’re looking into getting one of these pups, be prepared to have them for a long time!

10. Smart

They’re no dummies! Dachshunds are known for their intelligence and independence. Training can easily be done with the right technique. Since most smart dogs tend to be stubborn, it’s important that you train them the correct way.

Dachshunds make EVERYTHING

better!
