PupStyling Bad Breath Remedy-Product Review

Bad dog breath isn’t PupStylish and needs to be tackled with both stilettos on! Let’s admit it,  dogs have bad breath and most pet parents we just tend to put up with it instead of fighting the good fight to fix it. If you have a puppy like I do, you might be handing out more treats as positive training reward than you usually do. Many store bought brands are actually really stinky and leave that smell behind in your dogs breath. YUCK!

After reviewing pet products for over 15 years, we often get the 411 on a new product before the masses gain access. When I saw a fellow Marketing and PR CZAR was offering up a new product to test out for dog bad breath I had to jump at the opportunity. I haven’t tested this out on any adult dogs, but I can testify that it totally worked on Norman at 7 months old. His breath used to smell like roses and now it resembles something rank in my fridge.

TEST SUBJECT: NORMAN OLIVER, FAMOUS FROM INSTAGRAM @NORMADO.

Dog Gone Breath isn’t a breath mint but instead of goes to the tummy to balance out gut flora which is often the culprit. After two days of usage, it has worked for Norman. He seems to love the taste I notice a difference quickly. 

It’s made from all natural ingredients that will make any vegan jump for joy. All of the ingredients have been known for centuries to help stomach issues so it makes sense that they would help dogs too and cure the bacteria causing stinky kisses. This cost is $19.99 and worth every penny!

Most deer and elk shed their antlers during March and April, a time when their testosterone levels are generally at the lowest. The shedding process takes about 2-3 weeks leaving sculptural antlers for artists to turn into personalized dog chews and candles.

“The Johnsons and their home are part of a larger trend emerging nationwide, says Dara Foster, pet stylist, contributor to NBC’s “Today” and other TV shows and founder of PupStyle.com. The move toward more pet-friendly home design is linked to a cultural shift occurring over the last few years, she says. “We used to call ourselves ‘pet owners.’ Now, it’s ‘pet parents,’” Foster says. “It’s a full-on lifestyle. We treat them like children.”
