Fido's Freebie Friday
Celebrates Independence

by Carrie Boyko, CEB

We hope you and yours had a wonderful July 4th. I know that many of our pups do not particularly enjoy this celebration that often includes fireworks, causing fearful reactions. Oliver has become less reactive to these noises, simply sticking close to mom these days. He wears his Thundershirt and uses the Arenus Mellow Out, which both seem to have had a positive effect on his reaction.


Tanner remains clueless. Give him a pool to swim in during the day and he's a happy camper, enjoying his snooze time, right through the noisy festivities outdoors. 

For Bloggers:

Pet Product Review Tip # 17: 
When doing a giveaway in which the company will be shipping prizes to your winners, be sure to keep your site's privacy policy in mind as you offer information to the brand. I make a special effort to let each company know that my readers' addresses and phone numbers are only to be used for shipping purposes. You may even request that they not be added to a customer or sales list, depending on what your privacy policy offers your readers.

This past week's most popular giveaway categories were 1) Conference sample bag, 2) accessories and a shopping spree, and 3) treats and a gift card. For bloggers looking to add more traffic to their sites, there are two steps you can take to get more click-throughs: link up early after Fido's Freebie Friday reopens each Thursday afternoon at 4 PM ET, AND be sure to add the linky code to your own blog, making it easy for your readers to check out your other giveaways, when you have multiples. You'll find help on adding the linky code at our Help Page.
