Dog World Recommends
6 dog products to complement your natural lifestyle.
With so many natural products on the market, we wondered which one would get our dogs’ tails wagging. Although our testing is unscientific, it reflects some of the choices we might make as discerning dog owners.
More active dog owners want to care for their canine athletes naturally. Pet Corner International’s Hip + Joint Care, an all-natural liquid supplement designed to be sprayed over a dog’s food or directly into its mouth, delivers glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM to protect your dog’s joints from the effects of arthritis and other conditions.
Prices vary; 800-270-7932;www.petcornerproducts.com
Even the most rugged canine competitor deserves to be pampered. Best Shot’s Scentament Spa Collection, a line of aromatic dog shampoos, conditioners and splash sprays, come in enticing aromas that leave a delightfully subtle scent. Formulas include mandarin jasmine and honey, fresh apple and lily, baby powder, and more.
$13.95 (16-ounce shampoo or conditioner), $9.95 (8-ounce spray); 800-735-5251; www.bestshotpet.com/spa4me
If you want your dog to reap the benefits of a homemade treat, but you don’t have the time to make them, try Sue’s So Thankful Pumpkin Crackers from Blissful Biscuits. These vegetarian treats will keep your dog begging for healthy options.

Give your dog the health benefits of fatty acids with Nordic Naturals Omega-3 Pet soft gel caps. Derived from wild anchovies and sardines, the oil supports healthy skin, coat, joints, heart, brain and eyes.

Deliciousness and health combine in Fruitables Skinny Minis, tiny, chewy treats available in YamBerry, PumpkinMango and AppleBacon flavors. These sweet and savory morsels contain no gluten, wheat, corn, soy, or artificial flavors or colors. We appreciate that the package clearly states the treats’ calorie content (31/2 calories a piece).

Chews don’t get any more natural than a shed antler from the great outdoors. Antler Pantry’s Elk Antler Dog Chews are virtually odor-free and provide your enthusiastic chewer with weeks or even months of entertainment. Although sharp edges and points have been removed for safety, supervise your dog when it has any chew.
