EZVIZ Mini Plus Indoor Home Security Camera

EZVIZ Mini Plus Indoor Home Security Camera

We have a new puppy. We have been potty training and crate training like crazy. We discipline her barking when it’s nonsense and the biting and chewing can be a constant and we are working on that too. At night and when we leave her home she is kenneled. Immediately I knew the best puppy training tool for us is a 2-way indoor home security camera.

With 2-way I am referring to communication and I have that in my EZVIZ Mini Plus. The first day I had the camera on while out I checked in after getting an alert. I saw her going crazy trying to chew on her bed (despite like a hundred chew toys available to her) so I turned on the mic and yelled No. She popped her head up fast and laid down. knowing she’d been caught even if I was away. It’s the perfect gift for puppy owners!

Whether you need a nanny cam or puppy cam and whether you need your eyes on the inside of your home or outside EZVIZ has cameras for you. I love the Mini Plus for my needs. It is small and the magnetic base helps it stay strong on a shelf. It will switch to a night vision when it senses dark so I can keep eyes on this crazy puppy day or night.

I challenge you to visit EZVIZ and see all of their camera options. It is easy to install the free app and connect the unit. It took me just minutes. My router is downstairs and the unit is upstairs near her kennel in a 2700 Square foot home with high speed internet service and I never have connection issues. Also available on Amazon.

National Pet Awareness Month & Holiday Gifts for Pets

National Pet Awareness Month & Holiday Gifts for Pets

November is National Pet Awareness month. If you follow my blog you know that we got a new puppy several weeks ago. Maya is our Whoodle. In the over 2 months she has been ours she has grown much taller, gotten into lots of trouble and learned new tricks. Training her has been very easy because she is so treat motivated. Have you tried Purina products with your pets? Maya loves the Beggin’ Strips and she gets one after some training time or after a bath.

My youngest son loves how it smells when you open the bag because it really smells like bacon. Even if you are celebrating the cat over the holidays or for National Pet Awareness Month, Purina has the cats covered too with the Friskies Party Mix.

Purina treats are like the classics of pet treats. A trusted brand for a long time in so many households and these treats are fun to put in the pet stocking this season.

It really looks like bacon, doesn’t it? Give your pets a treat and a whole lot of what they deserve. If I had to rate gifts on the most attention given to me when I walk through my front door, Maya takes the top gift. As for the boys and a husband of 12 years, I give their greetings a close second (lol).

It’s so easy our 9 year old made her treat (or cake, as we called it). Just add water and pumpkin (optional) and stir. Pur it into the bone mold that comes in the kit and microwave for 2 1/2 minutes.

After it is done in the microwave we mixed water and honey with the frosting packet it came with and spread it on the carob ‘cake’.

Does Maya like her Homemade Dog Treat?

Um, yes! This new puppy of ours is very food motivated so there was no doubt she’d devour the Christmas PetCake. Then stay in a deep dessert coma stare for more. Nope! We started with a little piece and the rest is in the fridge where she can have a little everyday while it stays fresh for up to a week sealed.

The cats have varieties too and you can also find frozen treats and kits. These make great holiday gifts. Start by visiting PetCakes for more!

The Holiday leashes range in length from 2′ to 6′. With Maya’s 6′ leash it makes training her easy. I don’t use an expensive training leash. Just one with length that I can wad up short for training and test her by letting out some length here and there.

Pet Stocking Gift From The Pet Factory

Pet Socking Gift From The Pet Factory 

We are new puppy owners this year. We got Maya at the end of summer and this puppy has been such a great dog. She is a new addition to my gift list for fun holiday pet stocking gift from The Pet Factory. She does her typical biting, chewing and an occasional inside potty accident but she is so calm, sweet and been so easy to train. As the Holidays near it will be new to her and we have a large and loud family. For 2 days she won’t know what to do with herself with tons of food, people and gifts everywhere. Making sure she is occupied will be the trick and the Pet Factory has pet stocking that are pre-filled and ready to entertain the dog.

Do you give your pets holiday gifts? 

I like to put a little something out for her over the Holidays but with as busy as it gets I like the fact that these filled stockings are ready to go. I can grab one in my pet store run and save it until she needs the fun and gift that the kids can enjoy opening with her. We have a little sample of the Pet Factory Dog Stocking and Maya instinctively knew this box was for her. She was sniffing and chewing and anticipating Anthony opening up her gift.

What’s inside the Pet Stocking Gift From The Pet Factory?

The stocking is filled with colorful raw-hide bones and holiday shaped treats. She loves the rawhides and after a few days of her chewing them she has had no chocking, blistering pieces so I feel safe letting her have at these hides. From holiday treats, toys and apparel you can spot many fun holiday gift ideas. Find them at pet stores and retailers like Walmart and near you. If you are online shopping this year you can also find Pet Factory gifts at Amazon.
