American Dog Apparel
The chest is one of the top three heat-loss areas on a dog. And of those three areas—the ears, chest and paws—the chest is the easiest to protect. Why then do most dog coats only cover the back?

It works with a harness or collar. Available in 8 sizes and 7 colors. Made in America.

P.L.A.Y. Pet Lifestyle and You

Toys feature durable double-layered construction, AZO-free dyes, PlanetFill® eco-friendly stuffing, and are machine washable and dryer friendly. Available individually, with point of sale tree display, and in gift-box sets. Before giving them to your pup, hang them as ornaments on the Christmas tree or use them as Christmas stocking fillers.
Sojos Complete dog food now includes a Lamb recipe. Like Sojos Complete Turkey and Sojos Complete Beef, it’s made with free-range meat as the number-one ingredient. Sojos’ gentle freeze-drying process locks in the natural enzymes, vitamins and minerals—without cooking out the real meat taste dogs love. As you’d expect, it’s grain-free, with no GMOs, and nothing artificial. Just a short, sweet list of human-grade meat, veggies and fruit—all blended in the USA under Sojos own roof.
