Hello divas! I hope that you had a fabulous weekend. Mine was pretty good. I took a quick weekend getaway to Nashville to mostly walk my first half marathon of the year in the heat. And boy was it hot. Summer is truly just around the corner.
With summer comes all kinds of fun activities that the whole family can enjoy outdoors – including our furry friends. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I do not have kids of my own – instead I have an adorable cat and dog. They are a big part of our family and are treated as such. This includes making sure they stay healthy and happy year round.
I am so thrilled to be working with Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® DISH Dog food today to bring you an easy DIY Doggie Summer Survival kit that will help keep your dog entertained, healthy and happy all summer long.
My dog Dixie is an adorable 10 lb. chihuahua mix who we rescued as a puppy. She was found wandering though the woods by a friend of a friend who couldn’t keep her. So the hubby and I decided to make her a part of our family and we are so glad we did. She has been a joy in our lives and we try to do everything we can to make sure she stays healthy and happy for as long as possible. This includes making sure she is eating quality food – such as Nutrish DISH dog food.
Rachael Ray, with help from pet nutrition experts, created Nutrish super-premium food and treats for dogs inspired by recipes from her own kitchen in 2007. Cat food was added in 2014, and whether intended for dogs or cats, Nutrish recipes are made with simple, wholesome ingredients like real meat or fish, and do not contain poultry by-product meal or fillers. Nutrias DISH uses real U.S. farm raised chicken or beef is the first ingredient. The food is safely USA cooked with the world’s best whole ingredients, making it a delicious and fantastic option to help keep your pet healthy.
I purchased my bag of Nutrish DISH dog food from Amazon.com. Though it is also available nationwide at a variety of places, including where you locally buy groceries.

So with summer just around the corner, I thought that it would be fun to put together a little kit with the help of Dixie to help your dog stay healthy and happy this summer. The first item, is of course, the Nutrish DISH dog food. This is the basis for keeping your pup fed and healthy. If you are going to transition your dog to Nutrish DISH food, you will want to gradually introduce the food by incorporating it into your current dog food over the course of 7-10 days. Slowly replace your dog’s current food with DISH until it’s completely switched over.
Next, I would add some items that will help keep your pup active. The outdoors are a great place to explore. Dixie loves to go for walks or hikes when we can, so I would add a leash to the kit. You also want to have a couple of toys that your pup can enjoy both inside and out. Because Dixie is so small, she loves this ball that she can really get her teeth around when playing fetch. And if your dog is anything like mine, she loves anything she can tug as well.
You can’t have outdoor adventures without yummy snacks. So I also include some natural and healthy snacks that are fine for dogs to eat. Dixie loves anything with peanut butter, though it can be difficult to transport if you are out and about. So I also opt for some cheese, carrots and summer fruit such as watermelon (without seeds).

Lastly, every dog needs his or her own water bowl. For this kit, I opted for a simple small plastic bowl as it is easier to transport if you are away from home. I took my paint pen and added her name and some decorations to make it more personalized as well.
