This post is sponsored by Natural Balance® but all the puppy love and appreciation of Natural Balance products is totally my own. Well, and Sasha’s because she loves the food!
One of the great joys in my life is being a mommy to my sweet mini doxie, Sasha. I post about her on social media all the time, but don’t share too much about her on the blog and for that I’m sorry. Because everyone should know the great ball of sweetness, fun and personality that is Sasha.
As a city dog, and as a member of the hound family, Sasha is not above eating whatever she can, whenever she can. Often that means grabbing something off the sidewalk before I even realize what’s happening. She is sneaky! But while I can’t always keep her from grabbing food outside, I can control what I’m feeding her. I’m pretty thoughtful about what both the humans and the dog eat in our home. I periodically see those pet food recalls and that made me nervous, so I started doing a bit of research. I found out that Natural Balance® pet food is not only healthy for pets, but also that the company performs nine safety tests on every batch of food. I’d never heard of that and was really impressed! I do everything I can to keep Sasha healthy and when I learned the lengths that Natural Balance goes to to do the same, I knew I wanted to try them out.
Another thing that is important to me is supporting local businesses. We shop for all our pet needs at a local shop in DC called Metro Mutts. I trust Metro Mutts ownership and staff and honestly, probably wouldn’t purchase a brand of dog food that wasn’t sold there. I was thrilled to discover that Natural Balance is indeed sold at my favorite local pet shop. This combined with their Buy with Confidence® program – where I can enter the product date code and see the actual results of the lab test that shows that the food I’m feeding Sasha is safe made me feel so comfortable switching Sasha to a Natural Balance diet. With so many pet food recalls these days it is so important to me that the food I am feeding Sasha is actually safe. Natural Balance performs nine safety tests on every batch!
It matters to me that I can go and know FOR SURE that the food I’m feeding Sasha is healthy and has been tested – I love that Natural Balance does this and that I can easily buy with confidence. I also love the sheer variety in the kinds of dog food they offer. Sasha eats mostly dry food but my girl likes a little variety now and again, so I do like to feed her canned food at times. Knowing that Natural Balance has great canned food options as well just set my mind at ease. And – probably most importantly – Sasha is pretty obsessed with the food. She pretty much eats it in two seconds flat – does anyone else’s pup do that??
Sasha and I just love chilling – both outside on our stoop and inside the house on the couch!
I acknowledge that I’m a little bit of a crazy dog lady (or more accurately a crazy doxie lady) and I’m cool with that. I truly believe only the best is good enough for my pup and that’s why I believe in Natural Balance. If you have a pet in your life and are looking for a brand you can believe in, give Natural Balance a try. If you are anything like me, you will accept only the best for your pet and their health – because to be honest, I couldn’t possibly imagine my life without my girl! By the way, her favorite flavor was the duck and potato!
