Every month, we will share some tips and tricks when it comes to dog parenting. This month, we are focusing on nutrition. Just like a bed or toy, there are necessities that our loved ones need.
If you’d like to share any tips or tricks with us, we’d love to hear from you.

Road Trip Essentials
Pack (just) enough!
When packing, make sure to leave some room for your pup's needs: treats, toys, and necessities. Don’t pack your car to the point where your dog has to squeeze between luggage with barely enough room to lay down. It's like being crammed in the middle seat!
Brake for Breaks
Don't forget to take short breaks on the drive to let your dog do their business. Your dog will be bursting with energy after being in the car for a while. Find local parks on the way to help them blow off some steam. This website helps you find a dog park near you using zip codes www.nylabone.com/about-us/dog-park-finder
A GOOD TIME TO PLAY IT SAFE!
July 4th is definitely a cool holiday for us, but it can be daunting for our beloved besties.
Here are JAX & BONES’ top 5 tips on how to keep your best friend safe!
IN DA HOUSE
Might be a no brainer… but don’t let your dog roam in the back yard!! Hot BBQs and plates can spell disaster. Get them set up in a comforting room and turn on the TV. It’s the key to their comfort and more soothing than boom and bang sounds.
BABY YOU’RE A FIREWORK
If you go to a fireworks show, have fun, but DO NOT take your dog with you. It might be fun for you, but it’s definitely not fun for them. And DO NOT leave them in the car. That’s selfish and they will never, ever forgive you. Like ever!!
TAG… YOU’RE IT
It’s important your dog is wearing their tag and collar. With so much chaos on July 4th, anything can happen so you always need to ensure your dog is identifiable & that your pet recovery information is current.
Warn all guests to NOT feed your pet table scraps. People get a little tipsy and misled around the holidays! You don’t want to find yourself at the vet spending unnecessary dollars because someone caved in to puppy eye begging!
SPARKLE FREE ZONE
Do not light any sparklers around your dog. Do not light matches around your dog. Do not light any fireworks near your dog. Some fireworks have very harmful toxic material, including arsenic and other heavy metals (not AC/DC though)!
DOG EAT DOG
We love to spoil our favorite friends, but they also need for us to be their healthy guide.
Food is the ultimate gesture of love so make it count!
ALL IN MODERATION
Moderation…not a dog thing to do, but the right thing to do. You know it. They know it. You’re the boss.
This stuff is just not good for our kids. They may want it. Don’t crumble. Be strong. You got this.
In order to keep your credit card safe, do not feed your beloved baby any of this stuff. Not one morsel. You’re welcome.
SURE. TUCK IN.
