We are looking to add some new dog toys to The Country Paw at Budderstown. With so many on the market, we are looking to streamline and want to offer some of the most popular.
Our crew definitely has their favorites! Buddy LOVES his Atomic Treat Ball.
It looks like 4 half balls joined together. There is an opening at the top to add treats and he has a lot of fun trying to get them out. This is definitely one toy/training aid I would never do without. I highly recommend it! Buddy got his first one when he was 10 months old and he is going to be
14 yrs old in May!

Another favorite by all 3 of my dogs: Buddy, Willy and Annie (both yorkies) is the
Starmark Everlasting Treat Ball. It's a fun, chewing challenge for your dogs! Pop the edible
flavored treat in either one or both sides of the ball or use your own treats and it gives them hours of entertainment and quiet time for you!
Made with Virtually Indestructible Material - Stronger than rubber! Great for powerful chewers. Free of latex, vinyl and phthalates
So we want to know..............
What are your go to toys to keep your dogs entertained?
Having a multiple pet household, we are always cleaning something. And just when we thought we were done, we start all over again. But IT'S WORTH IT and is just second nature at this point! So, with all this cleaning, and sometimes smells I really don't want to deal with but have to, I have tried NUMEROUS cleaning products, vacuums, mops, etc! So what works? Everyone is different but usually when I find a product that works for my deep cleanings, I let all my animal lover friends know!
Personally I am not a fan of using vinegar to clean with but that's only because the smell makes me gag. I could write many pages on cleaning products but today I'll keep it to a minimum and post another blog later on.
My find last year is something I will always keep on hand for the heavy duty cleaning. It's called OdoBan. I know it's been around for awhile but I never tried it. Until now. I LOVE this product. At first I wasn't sure about the Eucalyptus smell (just one of the "flavors" they offer, but I'm here to tell you it's not that overpowering. Well, unless you are like me and just used the gallon of OdoBan and filled your spray bottles. The gallon is concentrated! I probably should have read the container but who has time to read when you are in the middle of cleaning?! So once I mixed the concentrate the correct way....it was purr-fect! ;)
Now this isn't just for pet odors. You can use this on almost EVERYTHING to clean including the rinse cycle in the washing machine. I even used it to wash down our outdoor furniture. They have many different products and "flavors" to choose from. Personally I was looking for the citrus scent in Home Depot but my store doesn't carry it. So I will be ordering off Amazon. I have added Amazon links below for just a few of the items I have already tried. I purchased most of my OdoBan products from Home Depot but Amazon is a great way to purchase too! We do a ton of shopping on there.
Here is a link to the OdoBan website as well to show you all the items they offer. http://www.odoban.com/products.php
Here is what OdoBan disinfectant does:
They also have a liquid air freshener which is great to use when you want a quick clean scent! It is multipurpose which cleans, freshens and neutralizes unpleasant odors. This one is not a disinfectant but has a great cherry smell!
I also use the solid odor absorbers near the litter boxes and have one in my car! They smell great.
So, if you haven't already tried OdoBan, I recommend you do so for all your household needs. And according to OdoBan's website, if you are not completely satisfied, return your unused portion for a full refund.
Until next time,
Peace, Love & Whisker Kisses

For months I have tossed around the idea to add a blog to Budderstown and finally decided....LET'S DO THIS! We want people to know who we are, what Budderstown.com is all about and get to know you and your furkids. We will blog about a little of everything pet related. In our 1st blog post...I want to introduce
The Country Paw at Budderstown.
We are a small family owned business which includes 3 dogs, cats and Mister Bird! I would LOVE to have chickens, but that is going to have to be a entirely separate post.
We started the business BUDDERSTOWN due to our love for animals. When I first had the vision, it was strictly pet related but over our 1st year, that is changing. As we are growing and learning what fits for us, we have been adding items for you & your home. We are sort of becoming a one stop shop for you and your pet. I guess you could say a gift shop. We will continue to offer an assortment of dog/cat toys but in 2015, we are looking to add more "gift" items, bakery items including chicken and beef jerky for your dogs, personalized items for your home - pet related and some non pet related. We want you, our friends of B-Town to let us know what you would like to see. If we offer something pet/human related and you like it but wanted a few words changed around, all you have to do is email us and we will do everything possible to make that happen. Same goes for pet items/toys. Don't see it on our website, let us know. We have access to many different companies and again will do our best to get the item you are looking for, at a reasonable price. Being a small biz,
we CAN GIVE YOU THE ATTENTION YOU DESERVE!
Now don't worry, our blog is not going to be pushing you to buy stuff all the time. We want our blog to be fun, informative and a place where we can all come together and chat about different things. Is there something specific you want me to blog about? CONTACT US and let us know. We would love ideas from YOU!
Now some people ask, "HOW DID YOU GET THE NAME BUDDERSTOWN?"
Budderstown was named after our Yellow Labrador Buddy aka Mr. Budders. Having multiple animals in the house, it feels like our own little furry town. One day it just clicked, and for the past 10 years our home has been known as BUDDERSTOWN
by all of our family and friends.
Wanting to start a pet related business for a long time, we took a leap of faith
and knew there could be no other name than Budderstown.
It’s because of our fur-family that we started this journey.
Before we end, we also wanted you to know that we are very active in local shelter/rescue. We are volunteers/supporters for New Beginnings Animal Rescue located in East Brunswick, NJ.
They are a small rescue that does BIG things. It is all volunteer run and their motto is:
"At home with US, until they go home with YOU!" And they mean it!
We also have different fundraising promo's during the year for NBAR as well as other rescues. It's all about giving back and working together.
So in closing on our 1st blog, I know it might have been a little boring, but we wanted to give you a little insight to who we are. We are your animal loving friends who are laid back, where simple things matter and furkids are our hearts!
Until next time,
Peace, Love & Whisker Kisses
