Seattle, WA, January 3, 2019- At Boss Dog®, we believe giving your dog a healthy treat is just as important as their main meals. That’s why we’re excited to announce our new PRO PUFFS dog treats are coming to a pet store near you. The treats are full of ancient grains that are energy packed, so your pup will be ready to walk for miles, romp at the dog park or learn some new tricks.

Ancient grains are grains that have been largely unchanged in the last several hundred years. PROPUFFS uses the best of these grains that are high in fiber, protein, antioxidants and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Grains like millet and quinoa help maintain stable blood sugar, which is great for dogs who suffer from diabetes.

Like other Boss Dog® products, PRO PUFFS has more than 500 million probiotics per cup and is full of live and active cultures. These elements are essential to support the growth of good bacteria. The treats are also low in calories, at 2.7 calories per puff, and contains prebiotics.

The product was developed by Vasili Nassar, who founded the line of pet products for his dog Kelby, a Rhodesian Ridgeback, with digestive issues. After Kelby refused to eat food after food, the Seattle entrepreneur knew he had no choice but to create a product from scratch. After lots of research and development, the hard work paid off. Kelby finally got the food that was right for his digestive system. Now, Nassar won’t stop. PRO PUFFS is the fourth product he’s created since Boss Dog® came on the pet food scene in 2018.

“I’m passionate about making Boss Dog® the go-to brand for digestive health support. I’m excited to offer PRO PUFFS to dog owners across the country. Kelby’s nutritional issues really taught me to “treat my pet, like a boss,” I hope other pet owners do the same. There’s nothing more rewarding than having a happy, healthy pet.”

Surf the internet and you’ll see all kinds of bowls for your pets: silicone, stainless steel, ceramic, stoneware and plastic. But which ones are best for your furry friend? With so many types on the market, we at Boss Dog® Brands wanted to know.

Why you shouldn’t use plastic bowls for your pet
The most common pet food bowls are made of plastic. Did you know plastic bowls can be dangerous for your dog or cat? Here are some of the top reasons why you should consider another type:

Better bowl options
While plastic isn’t the best, we found tons of other options. We looked at ceramic, stoneware, silicone and stainless steel.

Ceramic pet bowls
Ceramic pet bowls are a good alternative to plastic if the glaze that coats the bowls doesn’t have lead or other kinds of chemicals. The best way to make sure the bowl is safe is to buy a bowl designed for food use and coated with a lead-free glaze.

Stoneware pet bowls
There has been research that has shown some stoneware pet bowls may have lead in them. Researchers have found small traces, but so many products have minute amounts of lead in them, that it’s becoming all too common. Stoneware is not perfect but still better than plastic bowls.

Silicone pet bowls
Silicone is a great alternative to the plastic pet bowl. Nontoxic, nonstick, and rubber-like; high quality silicone products are heat-resistant and don’t harbor stains or odors. Silicone bowls can lack rigidity; however, which means it can flop over. (Think of those collapsible, traveling dog bowls.)

Why stainless steel is the best
At Boss Dog®, all our employees use stainless steel pet bowls to feed our animals. We know they don’t trap dangerous bacteria or leak harmful chemicals. And, they’re easy to care for with some simple soap and hot water. Just toss it into the dishwasher! Many options also feature rubber bottoms to grip the floor, so you don’t have to clean up as often when Fido knocks over his water.

Why Boss Dog® Brand cares
Of course, what you put into your bowls is just as important as the bowl you choose. As a company, we are committed to making the highest quality pet food and treats.  All Boss Dog® products provide unique benefits such as probiotics and prebiotics. And they’re free of grain, soy and corn. Keeping your pet healthy and happy takes conscious decision making. Make the right decision to give your dog or cat the very best. Treat your pet like a boss!
