I recently was selected to shop for Milk-Bone® dog treats at Wal-mart.
I don’t know who was more excited… me or this guy.
OK, so I think I was a little more excited to do the actual shopping. He’ll be more excited to do the eating. Sounds about right.
Before I went on my solo mission (yay for an hour at the store by myself), I made a list of what I wanted to shop for. Not a very long list, but good to have the reminders anyway.
Then I did a quick online check to see if I could find any coupons. And there actually was a coupon on the Milk-Bone® site!
Unfortunately, after repeated attempts, I wasn’t able to get the coupon to print. My printer is still new, but has been working intermittently, so I’m guessing that may have been the problem. Either way, I was disappointed that I wasn’t going to take advantage of it on this trip.
When I got to the store, I went straight to the pet section. I wanted to make sure they had everything I needed at that store before I did the rest of my shopping.
The pet section was well-marked and for the most part, the prices were easy to find.
And get this… there was even a coupon on one of the boxes of Milk-Bone® treats! Total score! Especially after I had trouble printing the one I found online. This was another high-value coupon: $2 off when you purchase the Milk-Bone treats and any Pup-Peroni treats or Milo’s Essentials treats.
We always try to find healthy treats for Luke, as much as possible. Especially when he was a young puppy and we were doing lots of training with him, it was especially important to us to find healthy alternatives. He was getting a LOT of those treats, so we wanted to make sure they were good for him. The more natural ingredients, the better. Now that he’s getting older (is he really almost 8 already? Amazing!), he’s already pretty well trained, so his treats are mostly that… occasional treats.
With these treats, though, we’re planning on working on him with a problem behavior or two. In general, he’s an awesome dog. He’s gentle with the kids, which is so very important to us.
But most days he thinks he’s a lap dog. A 50-pound lap dog. So we’re going to work with him a bit on respecting people’s personal space.
Lofty goals, I know.
Hey, Milk-Bone®, you ready?
