Peace and Quiet in the Campsite

We are always asked how we achieve such peace and quiet in the campsite with so many dogs. The answer is really simple.

look close

The answer is obvious if you look closely.

bully sticks

Bully Sticks!


Hey, even we can’t misbehave with our mouths full.

    This only works for one of us here. Princess Kat doesn’t like bully sticks. Mom is constantly looking for something she will actually like for a chew, but the list is super short.

    PS I’m feeling a little misbehaving coming on, and I think a bully stick would redirect me! Just saying.

    Ayla sez: Our hu-Mom and Dad buy treats for us, too, but not sure if they can even get bully sticks in Canada. They buy us “Rollover” brand Pork Hide Sticks, made here in Canada, and Dr. Mercola “Bison Bites” ordered from some place the hu-Mom calls “The States”.
